Just returned from 10 nights here & found it to be generally a very good site, with lots of positives & just a few negatives. We had a superior pitch & managed to fit on our Tigris 800, Outhouse XL & car with space to spare(our tent looked a baby compared to some of the monsters pitched there!). The toilet block was cleaned regularly & the showers were probably the most spacious we have come across. There was also plenty of them, 6 in the main block for men & 8 in the womens block. The were also 2 other blocks one of which (behind the shop) had about 5 individual bathrooms with shower cubicle, sink & toilet. The laundry had 3 washing machines (costing 4.60 including wash powder) & 2 dryers (1 for 15 mins).

The footpath to Padstow was good, but would only recommend using it after a couple of dry days.

The site was ideally located for the various local beaches & there's a very useful map of these on the outside wall of the main toilet block. Would recommend Trevone & Harlyn, both of which had plenty of parking at 3.50 per day.

The shop seemed to stock most necessities, including some camping gear, such as airbeds, pumps, etc.

The only real negatives would be that it was probably the noisiest site we've stayed on (bought earplugs from the shop!). The problem wasn't really the night time as generally the site went quiet about 10pm, however we were woken up about 6.30am most mornings (no chance of a lie in). I would also pity anyone who had a pitch near the playground as they would have to contend with hoards of screaming kids until about 9.30pm & then be woken by the cockerels in the shed behind the playground from about 3.30am!

The other negative is that it is the only site that we have ever visited that has charged extra for our kitchen tent (2.50 a night), which considering we were already paying 27.50 per night seems a bit penny pinching!

Overall though a good site & we would probably visit again.

This is an excellent site,with good toilet blocks and mainly flat large pitches. Some pitches do vary in size, so tell the site staff how big your tent or caravan is. The staff are very friendly and the toilet/shower blocks are always clean. The best block is to the side of the shop, they have individual rooms with toilet,shower and sink.

The path to Padstow is across 3 fields and then down a hill into the town's harbour.The fields can be muddy at times and would be difficult with a pram, but the views are beautiful. Just remember to take a torch when returning home after a few bottles of wine. We have stayed in many sites throughout the UK and this is as good as it gets. One of our top favourites.

Very nice site - from the minute we arrived to be greeted by smiling helpful staff to the minute we drove off through the automatic gates

Site beautifully kept showers clean grass cut lights all around nice shop good information nice area for kids - just one problem the British weather - rained for five out of seven days well six actually came home on the Friday because tent had dried out and the clouds were forming again.

Padstow nice to walk around , parking terrible if you do manage to find a spot you cant get out of your door because parking spaces too small , my car came back with more dents than an old VW camper, and you must have right change for meter as if you try to get change in surrounding shops you have to buy something and while your attempting to get change a silly little long haired traffic warden runs from the cafe in the car park and gives you a ticket before running off again . You know who you are you little **** rant over.

Rock - don't bother unless your with the yachting yuppies 'i told you casandra to get in the queue while I finished my bloody G & T' one toff said while waiting on a windswept beach to head back to Padstow.

Padstow good restaurants Old Ship in served good stuff and Rickies fish and chips were gorgeous but cans of pop for 1.50 come on Mr Stien even Dick Turpin wore a mask

So overall a good experience spoilt only by Britains finest weather but Padstow Touring Park was a superb base.

Our 1st time staying at this campsite and we were very impressed. Spacious pitch enough room for caravan awning car and a table outside.

The site itself was very clean and well maintained, the shower and toilet facilities were possibly the best we have experienced.

The staff on site were very helpful, the shop is adequate but with Tesco only a few minutes away you don't need too much from there. You can get fresh bread, pasties and croissants delivered every day from the Chough bakery in Padstow.

We are due to return in August for another stay and we can't wait.

The weather we had in June/July was fantastic and the nearby beaches are a credit to Cornwall.

We enjoyed an 8 night stay at this campsite in June which was great. The campsite is only a 20 min walk into the very pretty town of Padstow with lots to see and do, including the local horse riding, surfing, cycling on the camel trail and of course Rick Steins many establishments.

Campsite was clean and well maintained with good facilities - toilets, showers and washing up facilities were always clean, warm and easily accessible, free refreeze facility for ice blocks was an added bonus! Local amenities were fantastic with Tesco only a short walk away and approximately a miles walk into Padstow for an array of pubs and restaurants! The staff were extremely kind and helful and the onsite shop sold all of the essentials at a reasonable price.

Generally we had a fantastic time here and would recommend this site to anyone. As a local tourist attraction we particularly enjoyed the camel valley vineyard about a 40 min cycle along the camel trail from Padstow towards Bodmin.

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.
