Living in Porthleven I am often asked about caravanning in Mullion, Helston and Lizard area. Having a friend who is a retired vet, Noel Stuart brought me into contact with many farms when Noel asked me to design his book cover. We visited many of the farms some with caravanning and camping facilities the best of which in my personal opinion is Skyburriowe on the Lizard a little further on from Mullion. Good facilities, hard roads and plenty of space.
