Quiet at the end of the season and we accidentally booked a pitch with great sea views. The site itself was nice, with several different fields / areas, most of which were empty. Play area and play field plus a lovely shop that sold the most wonderful pasties and pork pies.

Firstly this is our eighth camping trip to Mother Ivey’s, so obviously we love it.... The site is so attractive, well kept, nicely landscaped. The pitches are spacious, there is always a fantastic atmosphere for families and we love the way this site doesn’t have lots of signs

Dear russy247 Many thanks for your email and please be assured that, while our Meadows camping field is reserved exclusively for guests with tents and cars, your VW Kombi is very welcome on all three of our touring fields at Mother Ivey’s (subject of course to availability). It really is just our Meadows camping field that, for many years, has been reserved exclusively for guests with tents and cars. Kind regards Patrick Langmaid Owner

Hi Lukekerrylilyjack Mother Ivey's is located around 1.5 miles by road from the village of St Merryn, with pubs, restaurants and shops, and about 4.5 miles from the town of Padstow. However, local Cornish roads are NOT great for pedestrians. There is a bus stop about half mile from the campsite, offering limited services to Padstow and Newquay. Hope that helps.

Definately because this camp site is so popular some pitches are booked a year in advance ! If you just turn up there may be no room for you.

There is plenty of room at the entrance to the site although the roads in aren't so wide nearer the site

"The Green is a Quiteria area, The Meadows more for sociable families"
"Any pitch is good, but if you want to be close to facilities, and dont have a dog, choose The Square"
"N/A not a hotel."
"Check if the caravan is "pet friendly" if you don't have a dog as some smell of dog - particularly if you use the hoover."
"get a pitch/caravan with a sea view if you can. I also prefer camping in amongst the caravans vs the meadows."
