Visit Liskeard.

Liskeard has many things to offer. Our caravan storage near Liskeard is only 7 miles away we can offer a great service to the busy market town.

From a regular cattle market to family run and high street shops, Liskeard suits everybody’s needs.

In 2001 we diversified our busy working sheep farm to form St Mellion Storage. As you can imagine farming and livestock is still a big part of our everyday life but we enjoy looking after our countryside as much as we do our customers.
