We spent a very rainy week here in August 2010. The site is quite nicely laid out and is quite a small campsite. There wasn't much in the way of facilities, just a basic playground for the kids and a games room that only opened at 7.30pm. We were a bit disappointed that they didn't open this area in the daytime as it was terrible weather. Also, there was a notice to say the chef was no longer there, so no food was available.

The toilet block is clean and modern and the owners are really nice and friendly.

I have to say that our children loved this site, I don't know what it was, but they were really sad to leave. We went to a much more expensive site straight after here with ample activities and it's own private beach, and they just pined to go back to Caradon! the owners have children who our children made friends with, I think this is why they loved it so much.

We also found our pitch to be a tad small but you get that sometimes.

All in all we enjoyed our week considering it was terrible weather. Looe is lovely, we caught about 200 crabs off the harbour. There are crab nets/lines being sold in Looe and it passes hours!

We just came back from a week here and loved it. The site is small, friendly and spotlessly clean, and there was always hot water! The woods just down the road are perfect for a run, which was tough but great fun, or a walk with the dog or kids if you're feeling a bit less energetic.

For anyone who likes to collect sea glass (or is that just me?!), Polperro is amazing at low tide! We also parked at the National Trust car park up the road from Talland Bay and followed the footpath down to the beach which was virtually deserted (Talland Bay itself was packed).

It was a bit of a trek back up but the views were out of this world so it was worth every aching step.

Overall the site, staff and area are all lovely, and I would recommend the site to anyone.

Just returned from camping caradon having stayed 11 nights,nothing really to add from the previous reviews as they are all spot on, the staff are friendly enough the site itself is spotless.

The free wifi didn't work for the first 5 days then then steve got someone in to fix it we got one day and it went off again for the rest of the stay, this is a free service offered by the owners so I am not complaining at all just grateful the owners decide to offer something for free which very rare these days.

Well done to the staff for making our stay enjoyable we will be back. Pitch 4, 8 aug

I read the reviews after booking for four nights, and after reading them I knew we were onto a winner.

The pitches although somewhat close to each other were maintained beautifully, the grass was kept to a good length and the drainage was superb. (I can verify this through experience)!

The site itself was spotlessly clean, all the wet facilities were top notch, and although there were only three shower cubicles in the mens there always seemed to be one free. The water was hot and the cleanliness second to none.

Obviously I didn't bother with the children's play area (Bit too old now) but it was safe and again well maintained.

However for me the pinnacle of staying here has to be the bar. Being a real ale lover I must say that the ale on sale, St Austell Tribute- a well known and liked ale in these parts and I believe now nationally, was kept in excellent condition, tasted lovely and was at pub prices.

Owners along with their right hand man made us most welcome and were a great source of banter in the bar at night. Talking of which the way to solve the puzzle with the nails is. Sorry can't say anymore as I did promise not too.

Looe & Polperro are only 2 miles either way, and may I add that if you want a good feed off-site go to the Jubille Inn which is app one and a half miles away, just turn right when you get onto the main road.

Great site, great people & great beer, what more could a poorboy want?

We stayed at this campsite on the first night of our camping trip in Cornwall. Fantastic facilities, cannot fault the place in anyway. After staying at four different camps around Cornwall, I can honestly say that we were really spoilt with Caradon - it was lovely! Looe and Polperroe are gorgeous places to visit too - loved it!

The buses to and from the campsite into Looe and Polperro are a little bit hit and miss, but if you manage to catch the bus it's well worth it! Our driver stopped for petrol on the way - never seen this happen before - hilarious!

Loved Caradon! Wish we could have stayed there for the week!

The site was lovely, the facilities were cleaned daily and look liked they had just been updated, although the showers weren't the most powerful in the world they did their job.

We only have a little tent and we requested to be against the back hedge, when we arrived the site wasn't overly busy however the end of the site closer to the facilities were all packed tightly together.

The site had a shop which was opened in the morning and sold some useful essentials and a reasonable price.

The site had two games rooms, with table tennis, Pool, Table football and Playstation1's. It also had a bar / restaurant which we ate a couple of nights the food was delicious if a little pricey.

The local area is good for walks and we visited both Looe and polperro both had some really nice lttle pubs and we had the nicest chilli beef pasties in one of the pasties shops in polperro, would also recomened the boat trips between looe and polperro if the weather is nice.

We also visited profell (sp?) wildlife park, it would probably be a nice afternoon out for a family with younger children however we're both 21 and so this particular attraction didn't really entertain us.

All in all the area is very friendly as are the site owners, myself and my partner are hoping to go again next year and visit the eden project.
