    Stayed here for the first time this year in pitch 28, very nice location and local to all shops ect, toilates/showers were always immaculate and clean, washing and drying facilities available aswell as a shared fridge freezer should people wish to use it and ironing facilities available aswell. Emy and Ryan were really lovely and lent us an electric power lead for our stay as we were first time campers and didn’t have one of these with us Teresa was also very good at communication via email with any questions ect we had. WiFi is excellent and the kids never had any issues with the connection. Location is very central to popular locations with equal travelling distances to them of around 45mins to an hour because of traffic, these include st ives, padstowe, Newquay and porthleven all of which are lovely places to go and see with immaculate beaches. We had a really lovely stay here would highly recommend the site and location and will deffinately be returning.

    The site operators were really helpful and friendly, the play area was a good size and for us it was in a good position to our tent pitch, the facilities were clean and well maintained with staff visibly cleaning during the evening.
    We also liked the size of the pitch and the feild was a great size for the kids to run and play.
    Eden age 5 says I liked playing on the swing and climbing on the climbing frame.

    Lots of space
    Clean facilities close to our pitch
    Nice country location
    Perfect central location for a base to explore Cornwall - can get to north or south coast easily
    Good playground for kids
    WiFi and electric hook up available
    Friendly and helpful staff

    Disliked: 

    Electric hook up pitches close to playground
    Some road noise (only under certain atmospheric conditions)
    No explicit policy on noise after 10:00pm although only an issue once - we were there for a week

A good site with friendly staff located in a nice area of Cornwall 10/08/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Bradley B. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric grass tent, touring caravan or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Playground, toilet/washing block, friendly/helpful staff, well located between Falmouth and Helston, road noise a minimum and spacious pitches

    Disliked: 

    No seperate sink for washing clothes by hand had to use washing up sink where people’s food remains were, signs could do with updating, reception not very well located as drove straight past it on the way in, bush on corner of playground could do with being removed to allow better view of children playing from tent pitches nearby, washing machine/tumble dryer could be cheaper and a gate needs to be put on playground by road access for child safety.

From the manager...

We are glad you enjoyed staying with us and enjoyed our facilities.
There is a separate sink in the washing up area for hand washing clothes, apologies if this was not pointed out to you.
Our reception is not yet finished therefore we have clearly printed signs detailing where reception is for the time being.
We are in the process of updating all of our signs.

We do ask that children are accompanied by an adult whilst on the park to help prevent any accidents and risk of injury to themselves or others.
We hope to see you and your little ones again in the near future.

All the best.
