Reviewer: Cree8 5 reviews from this member

Stayed here for one night end of May Bank Holiday weekend. We managed to grab the last pitch on the Saturday night, unfortunately it was fully booked for the Sunday else we'd have stayed another.

A lovely site with great, and soon to be better, facilities, great friendly welcome and v useful site leaflet that showed clearly the walk into Padstow. 20mins walk into the Rick Stein capital of Cornwall (can't believe how many shops / cafes / restaurants he has!).

Shower facilities in the main recep block are fantastic with rooms with plenty of space and a toilet, sink and shower together so no need to jump from private to public space to get ready.

It rained heavily overnight on our stay but the grass was well cared for so the rain posed no problems.

Pitch size was excellent, we had a superior but the standard pitches seemed to house some of the largest tents I've seen comfortably and there's plenty of space around the site for kids to play.

All in all great site, will stay again when we're next down that way.

Came down to Padstow for 'obby 'oss day. This was my first proper camp site in my Motorhome. The welcome & offers of help if I needed it were wonderful.

Couldn't fault the nice warm showers behind reception & so much space bigger than my bathroom at home.

The local bus service is very good & we enjoyed a trip along the coast to Newquay on a double decker - what wonderful views.

Walked into town the first night along the footpath - no one has mentioned the 2 ploughed fields, 3 stiles & the stepping stones across the very tiny stream - ok in the daylight but on 30th.April after the night sing at midnight we walked back up the road & it didn't really take any longer.

Will certainly be back.

This site is located just outside Padstow and although it is on the main road you can walk in to town and to big Tescos via footpaths across fields. Lovely views, quite high up and exposed.

Several toilet blocks, plenty of hot water in showers although sometimes big queues for washing up. Good shop selling basic provisions, tent pegs and lovely fresh bread.

My main criticism of this place is the size and layout of pitches. Pitches were shoehorned in and too close together, making it difficult to get cars in and out. Anyone with a large tent just wouldn't fit. We were pitched back to back (approx 2ft between tents!) with another tent who enjoyed using a really loud wind up radio from 7am!

This campsite is perfect for a family holiday, we've returned many times.

The toilets and showers are plentiful and always clean. There have been many new additions to the blocks since the new owners took over and things just keep getting better.

Pitches are well laided out, large and mostly flat, a little muddy this year due to bad weather in May and July but the owners were keeping it under control and we've never had it before.

Site shop has food and camping supplies and is open very reasonable hours. Fresh chocolate croissant for breakfast YUM!

The walk into Padstow is easy along the footpath and really does only take 20mins into the town. Padstow is lovely and there are lots of places to eat, Rick Stein's fish & chips are well worth a try.

The local beaches are great for kids, this year we went for surf lessons on Harlyn beach and loved it. The boat trip on the Jubilee Queen is well worth it, we saw dolphins!

The campsite owners and wardens are very helpful and friendly. Well managed and cared for without being obtrusive.

All in all a very relaxing holiday destination and a perfect base to explore Cornwall.

We spent two weeks on this campsite in August and enjoyed every minute.

The facilities are excellent, always clean and well maintained. There are plenty of toilets and showers, washing up sinks, a laundry, and a freezer for ice packs. The shop is well stocked and open everyday. We even had fresh croissants and bread delivered in the morning from the local bakery.

There is so much to do in the area, Padstow is beautiful and we loved Harlyn beach (golden sands and safe for the kids). There are loads of places to eat or you can have pizza or chinese delivered to the site.

Our pitch had wonderful views over miles of countryside and although the weather had been terrible in July the ground was well drained. The pitches are a good size and back on to headges so you have shelter and privacy.

The site only allows couples and families so there is no noise after 10pm and no clubhouse.

The whole family enjoyed the holiday and we booked for next year before we left so we are looking forward to our stay in 2008.

We too have just returned from this park last week end after spending a great 7 nights here.

Cannot add to what has been written by the last reviewer. The new block behind reception was probably one of the best we have encountered with so much room etc and the other block will be extended in plenty of time for next summer.The site is so well managed with no mess found anywhere and recycling bins in most locations.We have not been here before so cannot comment when it is full during the summer months but this is excellent for a week or so at the end of the year or indeed throughout the winter.Again the location is superb and if you dont fancy the walk down get back onto the main road and turn left towards Tesco's, go straight on until to nearly reach the bottom and park in the residential road then walk through to the harbour where there are plenty of chances to hire a bike and do the fantastic Camel trail.

We and our friends could not have picked a better location or site for this time of the year.

We towed back to Cheltenham last saturday without a stop in less than four hours.

Would love to do this again next autumn.

A beautiful campsite that is maintained to the highest standard and has wonderful facilities. There are plenty of toilets and showers and every year that we go back there are more. All facilities are always kept clean and there is always hot water. We've been back many times and we love the area. We always go in peak season and find there is a quiet family atmosphere. We have a family tent and the pitches are well spaced out and sheltered.

Highly recommended, we'll be back next year!

After just returning from a wonderful stay at Padstow Touring Park I thought I must write a review.

With the site located only 1 mile out of Padstow it's an easy walk 10 minutes to Tesco's by footpath then onto the pavement that leads you into Padstow which is a lovely place to visit with lots of great places to eat drink and relax and for those of you with a bit more energy you also have easy access to the camel trail.

The site it self offer's 3 shower and toilet blocks roughly 14 showers and one block currently being extended to add more facilities also the new heated shower block is a real treat much nicer than some hotels I’ve stayed in! There is also a play area for children and a well stocked shop which also takes orders for freshly baked bread, pasties etc to be delivered to the site. The pitches are a nice size ours had a lovely view across the fields.

All in all we had a great stay and would recommend a visit.

Just back from spending a couple of days at this site staff very friendly and helpful were alocated a pitch number but was told if you didnt like it you could take any one that was vaccant. Nice level pitches, the showers and toilets could do with updating but we found they were adequate.
Padstow is a lovely place with lots of restaurants and pubs to eat and drink in. We biked the camel trail which was very good. Tesco only ten minutes walk away across the field.
We enjoyed our stay here and will return again next time we are in the area.

Have just returned from 2 weeks at this site, and thought I'd leave a more up to date review. The site is easy to find, and you are quickly booked in and shown to your pitch.
We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were surprised to see many empty pitches. As mentioned in a earlier review the site is very exposed and we struggled to pitch our Monty 6 in what seemed a force 10 gale.
The pitches themselves vary in size. We did struggle to fit our tent on the pitch we were given, with it opening straight onto the road (no room for canopy). Exploring the site you come across two shower / toilet blocks, one seems set up for people using caravans, the other bigger block seemed set up for campers. It comprised of a chemical disposal, wash / laundry room, which contained chest freezer, two washing machines, one dryer and 5 sinks, 4 of which had hot and cold water.
There was a horrid smell around this toilet block, and I felt very sorry for the people who had pitches nearby.
The men's toilets comprised of three cubicle's, three urinals,  two showers and long row of sinks. The main problem was lighting with a single central light over the urinals, this meant you were often showering and other things in very dim light. There was a second shower room for men which contained two showers although one was fixed to the wall very low so could only be used by very small people or children. Speaking to a few fellow campers they did feel that there was lack of facilities for a campsite of this size, but on the plus side they were well maintained, free of charge and had constant hot water.
The site also has a children's play area, were the kids were running wild, they do allow dogs but under very strict control, pity they don't have the same strict controls for the children as footballs and water bombs hit the tent frequently.
Getting into Padstow couldn't be easier, a path leads straight there and takes about 30 minutes. The camp shop opens at 8.30 and closes at 6.30. It is very basic, and doesn't stock papers, luckily Tesco is only a 10 minute walk. The staff who we spoke to were all very friendly and helpful. In my opinion It is an average site, ideal as a base for getting around Cornwall, they could do with sorting the pitches out as over the bank holiday weekend we found tents pitched very close around us. More protection should provided from the wind either by planting trees or repositioning pitches. I doubt I would book again.
