This is a delightful site; quite large but arranged so that you never have more than a handful of units near you. Pitches are large with a variety of serviced and non serviced available and all are sheltered. It is carefully maintained by staff who take care with its presentation hence there is an abundance of flowers and flowering hedges which adds to the beauty of the location. Children have their own dedicated pirate ship within the play area and here is crazy golf available. The added bonus is the pool complex; 3 pools (one for children) which are heated, the ideal way to cool off at the end of the day. The coast path is a matter of minutes away although dog owners will need to walk /drive to Par Sands as Carlyon beach is another on the long list of beaches that dogs are banned from. I would recommend this site, it is very pretty, well maintained and an ideal location for exploring this part of Cornwall.

We normally spend five weeks travelling France and staying at 3 star / 4 star campsites and due to COVID we were restricted to holidaying in England. This was a worry as previous English campsites have not been a patch on French campsites but we were amazed at the quality of this lovely campsite in Cornwall. The price was excellent as well. The facilities were spotlessly clean and the landscaping was wonderful. Fantastic views from our pitch.

We stayed here for one night in June. Booking was extremely straight forward. On arrival we were greeted by an extremely helpful gentleman at reception. He provided us with a map and led us to our pitch. The pitch was immaculate and really close to the facilities. The facilities were fantastic, the showers/toilets were very clean. The campsite is in a great location with plenty of places to see/things to do very close by. Would highly recommend this campsite and can’t wait to return soon. Thank you!

This is one of the best campsites I've stayed at. It is family run and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful. The showers and toilets are very new and immaculate, even the washing up facilities were really nice and thoughtfully lit with cute kettle lamps. The little shop is really cheap and they had purposefully not booked too many people to keep things covid secure. The icing on the cake is the pool for the kids and the beach just 10 mins walk away. Everything was perfect! Highly recommended.

We had a great time staying at this camp site and it’s by far the best campsite we stayed at during our jaunt around Cornwall. Clean, well maintained and great size pitches. There was lots for our children to do as well
