Local Produce

 

LOCAL PRODUCE

Cornwall is very well known for its passion for local produce.

At Camping Caradon our on-site Bar and Shop sell fresh Cornish produce such as; Cornish milk, bread sticks to order; baked on the premises of our local Spar Shop, free range eggs and locally sourced meat from our local butcher such as bacon & his award winning sausages. Our butcher delivers the meat we use for our evening Bar-meals/Take-Away. His Rump-steaks are a hit with our campers, they are from a farm on Bodmin moor..... obviously been fed on lush Cornish Grass.
All produce is purchased through our Local Spar shop "Boxall's" and our local Butcher Thomas O'Keeffe & Father - traditional Butchers
both located in Pelynt 1.5miles from Camping Caradon.

By supporting our local community we also save on mileage for deliveries.

We recommend Pelynt Village to our visitors, for purchase of a wider range of groceries, post office and cash point machine usage.
It's close by and has Easy Parking.
You can also get there by bus from Camping Caradon.

 

Looe & Polperro are both located within 2.5miles from Camping Caradon, there you will find a wide variety of local Cornish produce

"Have a car free day out, and grab the bus, in site entrance for either Looe or Polperro"
