We found this site the best that we have ever stayed on, the staff where very helpful and the management were very friendly. I would recommend this site to any one and would give it ten out of ten. The bathrooms were kept very clean so was the site.

It was close to Polperro, I would recommend that you take time to visit Polperro, Looe and foye; they are all beautiful little fishing villages that are in easy reach from this site. What I liked with this site was that you could pay the full balance when you got arrived.

Excellent shower block and toilet facilities on the site, these were cleaned to a very high standard every day. The site was good, level pitches and fairly good size too. The site was busy but not too noisy. It had a small shop & Clubhouse which has a bar and games for the kids eg; snooker table. Owners very friendly and always around asking if you were ok which was nice.

Ok I don't want to repeat what others have said but here goes. This is a small site between Looe and Polperro.The pitches especially for tents are a little close together, however the 11pm curfew is well adhered to so its not a huge problem. If you want views then I'm afraid you wont get any here as its a couple of miles inland. The owners are very friendly and very very helpful, Steve was happy to recommend local restaurants and happy to book them for us. The showers are hot and the toilets are clean, we never used the bar on site as we ate out every night, there are plenty of quality restaurants in Looe and Polperro with a taxi to each costing about 8. There is a bus which stops at the site entrance but beware some only stop on request to the driver which is a bit of a problem if your not actually on the bus!.

Top restaurant has to be The Old Sail Loft in Looe. Overall a brilliant site just a pity its a treck to the best beaches and nearest village.

Just got back after 1 week at campsite, although we were only going to stay for 3 nights but it was so nice we stayed for week and travelled all around Cornwall from here.

Stephen and lene (owners) made us very welcome and helped with any information we needed. Toilets/showers/laundry and washing up areas were immaculate and the site was very clean overall. There was a curfue of 11pm which was ok with us, as we were up and out early.

There is a restaurant on site which you have to let owners know by 5.30 if you eating, we didn't always know when we went out if we were going to eat at site but a quick phone call to camp later in day was no problem. As for the food we ate there 3 times and what fantastic food we had which was not expensive. Small bar which was very friendly and either gordan or stephen always remembered what you were drinking.

Nearby Eden Project is a must, Looe and Polperro quaint little fishing villages, but St Ives and Boscastle also only about 1 hour away.

Well would we go back ? YES without a doubt.

My wife and I, with our dog, visited this site in early July 2009. As with all the sites we have visited over many years, there are good points and maybe slightly negative points with them all.

With Camping Caradon, I was very pleased with the welcome and the special helpfulness of the owners. They were cheerful and helpful with all the usual questions about buses and taxis and shops and dog walks and so on. We know they have had to answer the questions so many times, but they were more than happy to answer them once again to us. The site was well kept and very clean. We could tell they took effort and pride in it's upkeep. Although we didn't get a chance to use the bar and restaurant, several other fellow campers were happy to recommend the food.

My only concerns were that firstly, the pitches in the centre of the site felt somewhat close together, giving a feeling that when the site gets really busy it would feel very crowded, and secondly, with only 3 showers in the men's and 3 in the women's block, there could be some delays in the mornings. I would also suggest that the showers need to be more powerful, as this would mean less time in them and speed things up.

Although there are lots of areas off the site for dog walking, there is no dedicated dog walk on site. Maybe this could be a minus point for dog owners.

Altogether though, an enjoyable campsite, with very friendly owners and good facilities.

Pretty easy to find. Nice level site but a lot smaller than expected with no views to speak of. Its basically one field. Not many trees within the site so if its hot and you are tent camping, there is no shade.

Lovely and quiet at night with everyone respecting the quiet period which meant a good nights sleep!

Bar facility is a good idea especially for families who can view the kids playing on play area from the windows, and have a reasonably priced meal. Maybe not such a great place for couples!

Showers were always hot, clean and tidy. Nice touch being solar powered, site is doing its bit for the environment but small block with toilets directly opposite them. Not keen that this site allows dogs as there is nowhere to exercise them and therefore dog fouling is actually on pitch sites, even if people are clearing it up, its not pleasant pitching up where a dog has 'been'.

Charge for hairdryers and ice pack freezing - however its only 1 and you can freeze as many times as you like so not so bad.

Great idea to use the bus service in the high season as parking is often at a premium in the small villages around.
