    This caravan site was fantastic, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel at ease.
    The facilities were all in excellent condition and very clean and our hosts could not have been more obliging. Everywhere was neat and tidy and after ten days we were very loathed to come home. We will be back very soon.

    The surroundings were amazing so peaceful and relaxing. Everything was well maintained and clean. We were met by Jean at the car and she even popped round to see how we were enjoying our stay. Toilet and shower facilities were spotless and well maintained. There is a fridge and freezer for the use of campers which is very considerate. I have stayed at a number of sites in the Perranporth area and will be back to this one again and again.

    Lovely peaceful site with lots of wildlife around you. Clean and tidy site with good facilities and free showers Owners were very helpful when we locked ourselves out of the van and there is a nice pub just up the road that does food too

    Disliked: 

    Only 2 water taps for 30 or so pitches and one Elsan disposal that is a fair walk from the main field. We had to fill our water tank with buckets rather than drive to the taps as we were on levelling blocks. Field isn’t particularly flat but it is a field after all
    Wi-fi was free but only if you sat at reception to use it and there was little 4g signal
