    Nicely laid out with good sized pitches. Showers are good with plenty of hot water. Great walks nearby and a good base to explore southern Cornwall, (check out Porthleven we loved it.) We would definitely go back to Tremorvu.

    Warm and friendly welcome
    Great showers
    A lovely little shop for those little bits you forget
    Spacious level pitch
    Loved going to sleep to the sound of the owl, priceless
    Peace and quiet

    Disliked: 

    The older showers need an upgrade but still adequate
    More washing up sinks
    Perhaps a games room or play area for the kids
    The walk to the pub and nearest proper shop quite a distance and no real pathway

Beautiful secluded, quiet campsite, great facilities. 29/08/2017

    We arrived later than expected but that was not a problem for the owners, they instructed us where to camp and where the facilities were by phone and it was easy to find. The ground was smooth and grassy and pitches were nicely spaced out giving privacy to each pitch, we even had some bamboo splitting us from the pitch next to us and it made it all the easier to camp with our rescue dog. The site was so quiet in the evenings that all you could hear was an owl hooting and the occasional car in the distance. The stars were incredible.

    The facilities were fantastic, A utility building housed toilets, showers (including a disabled shower/toilet, washing up room, laundry room and a freezer for icepacks. The site office also sold some essentials like pasta, hygene products, eggs etc. The owners were friendly and the site was layed out in such a way that we didnt have to worry about our dog being set off by other dogs or people wondering through. It was perfectly located for all the sites we visited whilst in cornwall.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I disliked was not being able to stay there longer! Next time we will.
