    Awesome week at a very friendly site. Real community feel to the place, great evenings around the campfire, and the field was great for the kids to play in. Loved our week here.

Excellent site for day trips. Hassle free ready pitched tents. 21/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom james c. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • 3 bedroom rental tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Tent was fully equiped including electrical sockets to charge phones etc. We only had to bring pillows, blankets, sleeping bags and towels. Worth bringing a tent carpet for cold evenings.
    Ideal location for day trips around the coast and beaches all within 10 to 30min drive.

    Disliked: 

    Shower block needs updating. No space to sit and get changed in showers. But all very clean.
    Expensive laundry machines, nearly £5 to wash and dry clothes on rainy day + you need lots of £1 and 20p coins.
    Could do with a vending machine on the site for cold drinks and snacks..

    Lovely quiet site just what we wanted and perfect for visiting all that the far end of Cornwall has to offer. The owner was friendly and helpful. I will admit the toilet and shower blocks weren't the best but having said that they were adequate and kept clean, we were told new ones were due to be built on our departure 😀

    Loved this place, lovely owners great welcome. Campsite is beautiful. Well organised, good shelter from weather with hedges and stone walls, quiet and peaceful place. Washing and tumble dryer facilities much appreciated with 2 young children.

    Disliked: 

    The showers were clean but the the cubicles are very small, however chatting to the owner they are to be updated soon so that will be great. So bigger shower cubicles for changinging space and a few more showers thecamp site will be perfect.

Good location to travel around South West Cornwall and friendly staff. 01/08/2017

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Great location close to Praa Sands and the main towns like Penzance and St Ives are not too far away. The facilities are suitable and functional. Friendly welcome from the owners who were more than happy to help us with any tips and advice. The tent pitches are large and well spaced out.

    Disliked: 

    A bit exposed to the winds blowing in from the sea where were situated but I suppose this is to be expected in South Cornwall where the winds blow in off the sea and buffet the cost.
