Spent 3 nights here, first time to this site.

Very well-kept quiet site with pitches mown between arrivals and generally very clean and tidy. Pitch size seemed to vary and our Superior pitch just about managed to fit our 3 berth tent, canopy and car.

Showers and toilets were kept clean during some very wet weather and soap and loo roll always available! Shower and toilet blocks had been updated, although shower curtains still in use which were showing signs of mould and showers lasted only about 5 seconds before the button needed to be re-pressed (my bug bear!).

Being able to walk into Padstow was great although as said previously this is across fields, but views make up for the mud.

Nice site with great loo block and decent size pitch with space for vehicle table chairs etc off road. Lights around site give good light for toilet trips at night, shop on site for food milk bread and other essentials. Staff v friendly and site being upgraded constantly - now with wi-fi connection at a price

This is an elevated site and the wind does catch the tents v easily causing a bit of the 'flaps' also the perimeter road needs a few pot holes filling. There is a lovely footpath through the fields which leads to Tesco and down to Padstow - although can get a bit muddy after the rain.

Just spent a few days at this site. Very friendly, very clean and excellent walking access to Padstow. Having gone there on the moorbike this time we didn't use electric etc and 10 a night gave excellent value for money. We will definitely be going back with the big tent to enjoy another holiday.

We spent three nights here, at the end of Whitsun week. We had an EHU pitch and found that there was plenty of room for our Montana 6 tent, extension and car.

The site was well maintained with modern, clean showers. These were large enough for an adult and two children. I never had to wait for a shower but then again the site wasn't full, pitches were emptying as the Bank Holiday week came to an end. The first time we went to do the washing up the water was only luke warm, we didn't encounter this problem again, so I think this was just bad timing on our part. The shop appeared to stock the usual range of camping paraphernalia but we tended to stop at Tescos on our way back to the site - I did go on an emergency wine buying sortie to the site shop one night and was dissapointed, so definitely recommend stocking up on this!

We walked to Padstow, using the footpath, and our children aged 7 and nearly 4 managed this fairly easily. I saw other families with young children use the path but can't remember seeing any buggies. It was across farmland with three stiles to climb over before reaching Tescos and then it was downhill all the way to Padstow (unfortunately uphill coming back!).

The staff were friendly, efficient and polite, giving us useful advice about local beaches when asked. The site was within 5-10 minutes drive of some great family beaches, all with parking, toilets,cafes or pubs close by. The weather, when we stayed, was excellent so we didn't venture any further afield.

There was a small, not overly exciting playground, but it seemed to be used by children of quite a range of ages. There is no clubhouse or gamesroom, but the children were quite happy using the playground or playing racket and ball games (cricket and football were only really possible when a couple of nearby pitches had vacated) or just playing with friends they had made on site.

All in all we would recommend this site to others and stay there again ourselves.

We visited Padstow Touring Park in the Whitsun week & spent 9 lovely nights there. The site is quiet, very clean and in a very good location, with a nice walk into Padstow. We had one of the kernow pitches which was probably the biggest pitch we have ever had and you get your own private toilet & shower block, but the shower block near our pitch was very clean & nice any way. The staff on site were very friendly & pleasant especially Pete the warden.

My only negatives points are the waste disposal point was the other end of the site and the fact the shop didn't sell newspapers which from a business point I couldn't get my head round, but I will definitely return to this site.

We were so lucky with the weather so a positive slant on the site is to be expected! Wash facilities away from the main entrance were always clean and we never had to queue. Facilities nearer the main entrance did appear more dated though owners kept them well maintained. Pitches were a little tighter than C&CC regulations but manageable.
The site as a whole was kept very clean and planting really complimented it. As with last posting, beware the footpath to Padstow, whilst dry while we were there, it would be treacherous when wet. Padstow really lovely and you are within easy reach of most Cornish attractions.
One Negative, we didn't realise dogs were allowed on site, which on the whole live and let live, but after you've cleaned dog poo from your shoes a couple of times it does wear thin. In the staffs favour when we complained about it , they were very quick to deal with it.
