    Very friendly owners who daily checked every family was well. Spotless facilities. Located well to the coast and the A30. Will be going back!

    Disliked: 

    Would have been good to have a few written rules ( no noise after 10pm ) This was an unwritten rule and the owners did stop any late noise but if written down would be more explicit for all.

    Everything we could have wished for from a camp site, particularly as most won't take young all male groups. They were friendly, helpful and approachable throughout our visit.

Fantastic little gem 14/08/2017

    The owners where fantastic and very helpful. It's a small campsite witch is well looked after with the A30 just five minutes away so a great base to travel around Cornwall. Perranporth is a great beach for surfing and only a 5 minute drive away.

    Disliked: 

    May need extra showers and toilets as only 3 in each and the shower wasn't very powerful. Saying that I only had to cue once on my week stay.
