Calamankey is a traditional working sheep farm with a caravan & camping site holiday center near Falmouth at the base of the Lizard.
It is set in open countryside with views across rolling hills to St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsular beyond.
Established in 1946 as a campsite, it now has five static caravans added and is ideally suited for family holidays.
The farm keeps two flocks of Westcountry sheep, Llamas, horses, working sheep dogs and some poultry which are of constant interest to children staying on holiday.
The campsite is set in a large two acre gently sloping meadow overlooking open countryside with views across rolling hills to the Fal estuary, St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsular beyond.
It is licensed for 45 tents and 15 motor caravans/ campervans.
There are six mainís water standpipes conveniently situated around the field and below, beside the farm house, are seven Ladiesí and six Mens' toilets along with wash basins & showers.
Dogs are allowed on site but must be kept under control at all times.
Our campsite operates on a simple per person fee (£6 per adult and £3 per child under 13yrs) with no extra charges for pitches, parking, hot showers, toilets or washing room facilities.
Previously we have not bothered with tent & campervan pre-bookings but know that many people feel more secure in the knowledge that they have a pitch pre-booked at our site.
Consequently we now can offer a 10% discount to those who pre-book their holiday stay on the campsite. Thus two adults and a child would normally pay £15 per night, but by pre-booking five nights they would pay only £37.50 as a booking fee and the balance of £30 upon arrival giving a saving of £7.50 on their stay.
If you wish to book a static caravan then please ring me to confirm the booking fee and availability.
Static (elderly) Caravans
There are five elderly static caravans on site which can be reserved in advance by paying a booking fee.
The caravans are connected to mains electricity & water.
Blankets and pillows are supplied along with cutlery, cooking utensils and china.
Guests are asked to bring their own bed linen.
Dogs are allowed on the campsite but must be kept under control at all times and no pets are allowed in the caravans.
The caravans are let weekly from 2.00pm Saturday until 9.00am the following Saturday between February 1st and mid-December.
The animals consist of sheep dogs, Llamas, and sheep and lambs in spring.

Cheap as chips, it's got everything you need. I actually live here now, the simple life. If you come to the farm to stay and start moaning at this price, I suggest you man-up and get in touch with nature. This place probably isn't for watered-down city-slickers, but it sure is beautiful.

myself and a friend spent a week at the farm a few years ago and had a very pleasent time yes things were basic but it is a farm and the prices you are charged you would not expect to get the ritz. The farmer was great and we went and fed the llamas quiet amusing when one of the adult llamas decided to have a paintball contest with the farmer. I do believe judgeing from what i just read when you go camping you leave the kitchen sink behind and its back to being basic

Reply by Calamankey Farm:
Obviously we were very disappointed that Mrs Sarah Howgate, her parents Mr & Mrs Kevin Lambert and her brother Mr Karl Lambert along with their children, friends and partners felt unable to stay in our caravans and hope they enjoyed the more expensive site I understand they moved onto( apparently £70 extra per caravan). To answer Mrs Howgate's criticisms we would make the following comments:
1) Our caravans are old and because of that we are able to offer them at a considerably reduced price. We make that clear on our website.
2) We were shown some black pinprick spots on the kitchen blind above the sink & cooker that were claimed to be mould but subsequently were found to be just stains left after it had been sent to the local dry cleaners. When asked for other evidence of mould and damp they did not produce any further examples.
3) We do not supply sheets and advise guests to bring their own as stated on our website. The blankets we supply are old but cleaned every year. Most of our guests bring their own duvets as advised.
4) There was one oven with a slight rust stain on the white enamel, other than that there was no rust anywhere.
5) Calamankey Farm is a working farm with over 500 sheep and some 70 plus Llamas. We do not have bits of tractors on the farm and certainly do not have old machinery anywhere near the campsite or static caravans and we do expect parents to keep their children in the areas designated for camping or static caravans unless accompanied by myself when visiting the animals.
As long as our main activity is farming we are bound to have machinery and tractors on the farm but keep them away from the campsite and static caravans unless carrying out work in that field. We would stress to all parents that farms are dangerous places for their children and for that reason the children should be properly supervised and restricted to the campsite and static caravan areas.
