Super owners. Clean showers, nice little site. 13/09/2017

    Firstly Peter and jane are thoroughly lovely people. They took over the site only 5 months ago so lots of work ongoing to get the site ready for next season.
    Nice little site perhaps suited to people as a base to go off exploring beautiful Cornwall.
    Quiet in the evening and even a couple of owls heard in the trees behind our pitch.
    We enjoyed our stay.
    Good luck with your improvements and we wish you every success.
    We missed Peter and his digger this morning. 😀

    Disliked: 

    We had to use the car to go anywhere as the road the site is on is a busy pathless road so walking with the dog was a no. Not able to walk to the beach.
    Showers need a bit of a power boost.
    £18 to wash and partially dry 2 loads of washing. ☹️

Lovely site. 08/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Sam P. Confirmed

    Arrived just after 12 on Saturday 2nd Sept for 2 nights across 2 pitches. The owners welcomed us upon arrival and showed us where our pitches were along with the facilities.

    The campsite itself is peaceful and quiet just off a main road. The pitch sizes were ideal for our needs and allowed us to park next to our tents. The campsite was fairly quiet due to the time of year but that was just what was needed.

    The facilities compromised of water taps (for drinking and also wet-suit washing), recycling and waste bins near the entrance and shower/toilet block. The shower/toilet block was extremely clean and tidy. Within the block there was also a couple of sinks to wash pots/pans along with communal fridges (free to use) and washing machine/tumble drier (chargeable). Free of charge WiFi is available near reception.

    Access from the pitch to the shower block was by a grass road, however the owners are installing a more substantial access road/path which will be great, especially when the weather is wet. We weren't too lucky with the weather, but that's the fun of the Great British weather!

    Located ideally just down the road from Goonhavern (nice pub) and not too far from Newquay/Crantock along with Healey's Cider Farm. Great for those wanting a base to explore Cornwall.

    If we come back camping to Cornwall, we will be back at Lakewell.
