General

  • Quiet, family-run site in a lovely rural area
  • Excellent on-site facilities including small grocery shop
  • Easy reach of Perranporth - surf beach, sand dunes and rock pools

A quiet, family-run site in lovely rural position within easy reach of several beaches close to Perranporth. You'll also enjoy views across the nearby valley surrounded by countryside, with easy access to all of Cornwall and its many attractions. You can travel by car to most of Cornwall within 30-40 minutes.

Perranporth, with its fantastic three-mile surfing beach, sand dunes, rock pools, natural sea swimming pool and shops, bars, takeaways and restaurants, is only two miles from the site.

The pitches are generally level or gently slopping and most come with electric hook-up and personal water tap. We also have new hardstanding premier pitches with waste water connection.

Washing-up facilities with plenty of hot water are included in the price as are the superb shower and toilet block. Laundry facilities are available but at extra cost. There is an on-site shop open at peak times, selling a variety of the usual groceries.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

There are restricted opening times for the on-site shop during off-peak periods.

Strictly no arrivals are permitted after 8pm.

    Well what can say, stayed here last year and really enjoyed our stay. This year didn't disappoint, a well positioned site for access to beachs Truro and many attractions in Corwall. Great value for money with full hook up. Toilets clean and tidy, washing up facilities great for those who want to use. Will we back again? If visiting Cornwall yes we will,lovely clean site which is well maintained.

    Disliked: 

    The other businesses in operation can be noisy at times but this is not a reflection on owners of the site as these operate separately to camp.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you again when you next come to Cornwall. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

Good level solid pitch. The facilities were clean even when very busy. 30/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Simon K. Confirmed

  • Premier fully-serviced gravel pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The level fully serviced hard standing pitch was great and it was easy to site the caravan and awning. Good clean service areas and a shop with basics.

    Disliked: 

    Only one toilet in the block for men is not really enough during peak season luckily we were able to use our caravan facilities so did't have to wait around during busy periods of the day.
    Very close to the road so lots of traffic noise even though you couldn't see it.

From the manager...

Thank you for your excellent review.
There are 2 other toilets nearby for when it is busy. Unfortunately, road noise on just a few pitches is unavoidable especially during the peak of the season when so many vehicles are on the road. However, for the many, this is not an issue as most pitches are far enough away not to notice this. Hope to see you again.

  • Liked: 

    Really chilled and not strict time limits. Good family atmosphere and could be out till late without complaining

    Disliked: 

    Key for toilet is annoying as I don’t think it was needed. People come and go and it’s no where near anywhere so people can’t just rock up and use facilities.
    Annoying smell from the land I think, maybe a cow farm next to is pollution land, not sure.

From the manager...

Thank you for your excellent review.

With regards to the requirement to have a toilet block key it is unfortunately essential as people have been known to turn up at our site just to try and use the facilities. Also, from time to time, we have rallies on site and due to their rules, are not allowed to use the facilities either although some still try to. Plus, we have some lockup workshops on site and again they are not permitted to use the showers and the only way we can control the usage is to supply keys to the paying clients.
