Welcome to Dinham Farm, Camping and Caravans. Our names are Sally and Stephen Mably and this farm has been in our family for over 40 years. Our working life is spent ensuring that our facility is top class and suitable to offer our visitors the ultimate experience in one of the most beautiful places in the county.
When we arrived at Dinham Farm I had goosebumps. The sun had come out and all I could see was green fields and the most amazing view. We then went on to have the most magical week either relaxing at the farm or exploring the area. What a fantastic family place.- Rosie Wake
Dog Friendly Camping
Your family dog is an important part of your family and if you can’t bare to leave him or her for a fortnight (or pay the kennel / dog sitter fees!) then you have the fantastic option of bringing the pooch with you. Your well-behaved dog is more than welcome at Dinham Farm.
Our central surf school and hire services are provided at our Polzeath Surf school.

Local Area & Amenities
Please note that we don’t have a site shop. However, there is a good range of shops close-by, both in Rock (2 miles) and Wadebridge (3 miles).
Rock, only 2 miles away, has great beaches and is dog friendly all year round!
Rock is also popular for sailing, water-skiing, wind surfing and fishing trips with the famous St Enodoc golf course sandwiched between Rock beach and the lovely sandy beach of Daymer Bay.
The fishing village of Padstow is a short ferry ride across the river; ‘May Day’ is a traditional festival day complete with the famous Obby Oss. Fishing trips and pleasure cruises around our beautiful coastline leave from the harbour.
The Camel Trail is very popular with walkers and cyclists; it begins at Wadebridge and follows the River Camel downstream to Padstow, with spectacular views of the estuary, or upstream towards Bodmin.
Polzeath is one of the finest beaches in the British Isles, endless rock pools provide plenty of opportunity to explore while the high quality and consistent surf conditions attract water sports fanatics from far and wide.
Port Isaac, Tintagel and Boscastle are all just a short drive up the coast. The scenery is breath taking and provides a wonderful contrast to the picturesque villages and rolling hills of the estuary.
Thank you for helping us to create some wonderful family memories! From playing cricket with the other campers to encouraging us to use the local Camel Trail (bike ride). Everything has been so much fun and the children have made some firm, new friendships.- Samantha Brookes
Bumblebee Conservation and Awareness at Dinham Farm
We are pleased to announce that Dinham Farm, Caravan and Camping are supporting the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. We have become Members and we hope to collect donations on behalf of the Trust. We also anticipate raising funds for the Trust by selling books and cards by Felicia Mary Jones of Turquoise Stag Design.
Supporting The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is a small charity that works tirelessly to conserve and protect Bumblebees and their natural habitats. They are a scientific research based charity that relies on public donations to carry out important conservation work to save Bumblebees from extinction and, therefore, the sound of our British summer.
A Book to raise awareness of the plight of the Bumblebee
As a way of raising awareness about important pollinators such as Bumblebees, we are delighted to announce that we are supporting the work of Cornish artist and author, Felicia Mary Jones. Felicia has written and illustrated an enchanting children’s book to raise the awareness of the plight of an endangered Bumblebee called the Shrill Carder. This book is called “The Tale of The Shrill Carder Bumblebee Family” and is influenced by the work of Beatrix Potter. The book tells the tale of Lizzy, the Queen Shrill Carder Bumblebee. It has been written in conjunction with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust to ensure that it is an accurate description of the life cycle of the Bumblebee. Importantly, a donation of £1.00 per book sold will be made to the Trust to support their valuable conservation work. Felicia has also produced blank Greeting Cards from the illustrations in her book and fifteen pence per card sold will also be donated to the Trust.
The Book and Cards are available to buy from us at Dinham Farm’s Reception or from Felicia’s website at www.turquoisestagdesign.com
The importance of Wild Flowers for our Pollinators
We have sown Wild Flowers such as White and Red Clovers to encourage foraging from Bumblebees and other pollinators. Our hedgerows are managed to encourage wild birds, pollinators and animals to our Eco-friendly Site so that our customers can engage with and enjoy the natural environment. A holiday surrounded by nature and wildlife will enhance your sense of well-being.
Planting Wild Flowers either in pots, on a patio or in the garden will attract pollinators such as Bumblebees. Please see what you can do to help Save the Bumblebee by visiting the Bumblebee Conservation Trust’s website at www.bumblebeeconservation.org
The first time we discovered Dinham Farm we were delighted with everything on offer, the beauty of the site and the Cornish wonders on our doorstep. The second time we visited we brought a few more family members with us to share the delights and to make our rounders games bigger! This time, was our third time and we travelled down with another set of friends and their children. There has been a lot of laughter, eating outside and this has been a week that we will never forget.- Leanne Roberts
Being “green” is important to us at Dinham Farm and because of that we are trying to do our bit for the environment. A 200kW solar installation provides some of our daytime electric for the site. We intend to further our green policies in the future.
Hairdrying room (Bring your own dryer), washing/drying machines, showers, clean toilets and use of freezer for ice-packs.
Covered play areas with table tennis, slide and a real boat available for stopping the children from getting bored!
Imagine being able to create, cook and eat around your very own campfire! Memories are made of this.
