    Hello

    I have done a few searches for camp sites near Eden project. Need a bit of input if anyone has stayed near there.

    Friends coming to visit next week so taking them on an overnighter to Eden.(we are borders Devon / Somerset)

    Would like a smallish site nearish to Eden with nice pub nearby.

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Looked at Innis Inn - Fishery and camp site - anyone been there? Would like to know what camping area is like, is it sheltered etc -not much on the site about it though.

    Found Billberry Farm whose small and not very detailed web site I found on a nefarious web search somehow. Emailed to ask if near enough to walk to Eden as may visit and looking for one night next week. Mentioned we were CCC members.

    Got a v sharp response. "as far as I am aware there is NO reciprocal arrangemebt for CCC members to use Caravan Club CL sites so we cannot take your booking."

    ooooer.... I had heard there was a difference between CC and CCL - now I know.

    Anyway - back to my question - Does anyone know of a good site near Eden - we want to sit out and chat round a bbq in pm if poss and weather permitting, so a relaxed type site would be good - also have two small dogs coming with us.

    Thanks Rod. Wonder if that is Medros Farm site (small site for 5 vans) - do you recall name by any chance ? if not will ring the pub. Pub looks a bit up market -am I right? or wrong impression from web site perhaps.

    out now but back tomorrow to check for any more input

    We've been to the Innis fishery - to fish not to camp - but looked at the site. It's level, very limited facilities but in the grounds of a pub that serves food. Nice people own it and it was very quiet when we were there. Walking distance from the Eden project. Hope that helps. :Smile:

    There is the innis inn, and madros farm a bit further up. Both benefit from being on the back-road access, so no huge queues!

    A little further up the back road is kerrow, and kerrow farm, which is very nice. There is also a tiny CL on the dump road - don't be put off, the views are stunning over the bay. Cannot recall what is is called, but often see a couple of vans there.
