Reviewer: Jenny Hartley 1 review from this member

My partner and I stayed at Camping Caradon for 6 nights during the Easter bank holiday in 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to such a lovely and peaceful campsite.
All amenities were excellent including the club house where we enjoyed sampling the local ale and cider – I would definitely recommend the Sunday roast which is cooked to perfection.
The ground was soft enough for pegs, they provide electric hookups along with the hiring of the lead (optional). The toilet block with hairdryer and showers (which are free running so there’s no prepay meter or time limits) were thoroughly cleaned each day, the laundry facilities were ample and the shop had a large variety of stock.
As this site is family run, we felt that the hospitability had a personal touch which you normally wouldn’t get if you were to stay at a chain company and management even helped us to plan out some coastal walks, they also provided us with several brochures for things to do / see in the local area as well as further afield.

We took the coastal paths to both Looe and Polperro several times during our visit and managed to observe the peace and tranquillity of the countryside as well as the sea view and beaches. There are toilet blocks at Talland Bay half way between both destinations and a small cafe where they sell Cornwall's best creamy icecreams! Both towns have ample shops and things to do and we even participated in the local 'duck' race in Polperro.

During our visit to Looe we sat on the beach whilst eating our scones with fresh clotted cream and homemade jam. We bought fresh fish from the Fishmongers along the harbour front and cooked them back at our tent one evening.

We travelled down to the site with First Great Western from London Paddington and changed at Liskeard direct to Looe with backpack. The journey was extremely easy and the timings perfect, there were no huge queues or waiting times and the scenic view from the local train was beautiful.
The site was perfectly located amongst the countryside with both Polperro and Looe in easy reach by either bus or coastal walk. The buses arrived in a timely and efficient manner and the drivers were very helpful and friendly. They even stopped at destinations of your choosing along their route rather than at the allocated bus stop to help you further! So I feel that you don't need a car to visit this campsite as it's within easy reach by public transport.

All in all an excellent holiday break away from the hustle and bustle of London. I will definitely be recommending this to family and friends and would love to go back again in the near future.

We visited this campsite in July last year and we loved it.

Steve and Lene are really friendly, the facilities are clean, the pub grub is excellent.All home cooked.

There is a barrier on entry to the campsite for security, a little shop and small games room for daytime use.

All pitches had electric hook-ups.

There is a large toilet block with showers, also pot and clothes washing facilities. There is a playground for the kids and at the back of the pub there is a large hall / games room.My little boy loved it.

The weather was awful, as British weather generally is in summer, especially when we go camping, but we had a great time.

When we arrived there were gale force winds and whilst trying to put up our rather large tent the wind took it flying across the site. 2 of our steel poles were broken. I thought our holiday was over before it had even begun.

My husband went into the office and told Steve what had happened and he came to our rescue. He fixed the poles, moved us to a sheltered spot and within the hour our tent was up.

There is lots to do around Looe, there is a bus from the campsite which takes you to Looe or Polperro which we used most days.Both Looe and Polperro are beautiful places.

Also Lene gave us a map of some nearby walks so we went walking along the coast.

We went to the Eden Project one day, only about 15-20 mins away.

We have just booked to go again in July this year.We can't wait.

If I had any criticism at all it would be that we had to wait until 7pm for the bar to open.

We come here every year, at least once. It's always our first trip, usually at Easter to get the caravan in order for the summer, and usually our last trip too before it all goes away for winter.

Camping Caradon is a great little site - quiet enough for us to allow our children (aged 5 & 7) the freedom to play, but with enough for them to do. The club house is reasonable with table tennis, jenga and board games available. Bar prices are fine, and the food is good quality, decent portions, at reasonable prices - most items on the menu can be scaled down for children's portions. Our children were disappointed when pasta was taken off the menu though! (Please could this be remedied this year?)

Stephen and Lena are great hosts - nothing is too much trouble; if they're not in the shop, they're usually on site somewhere, and can easily be contacted. Last time, we had to borrow a pump before we could pitch as our jockey wheel had gone down - but that wasn't a problem.

The showers are toilets are always clean - but solar heated water does mean that if you leave it till the end of the day, you may not get a really hot shower. We've been here over a hot August bank holiday when the site was really busy, but didn't have to wait very long for a shower.

All in all, this is one of our favourite sites, and we will be back!

Spent a week at Caradon at the beginning of September. Owners are very helpful and friendly and really do go out of their way to help in any way. When we first got there Cornwall had had extremely heavy rain for 2 weeks until the day we arrived. The ground was very boggy in areas people had previously been pitched but they were very good in letting us change our pitch to a more convenient location and the drainage was very good as it dried out within a day or two.
I have 2 children aged 4-5yrs and they were very relaxed here as they have a great playground and small games room which occupied the children all day and the site was enclosed and safe to allow the children to play. (There is a barrier in which you need a code to get in to the park which you are given when you arrive).

There is a family bar and restaurant on site.(We didn't use but was told the food was good quality and prices were reasonable.)

They had separate male and female shower rooms which were cleaned to a very high standard and included a hair dryer (20p for a few minutes). They had a little shop which sold essentials, milk, bread etc. We hired a gas bottle for £18 for the week and a electric hook up at £1 a day. They have a 11pm - 7am curfew which we were grateful of as we had two small children sleeping.

All in all, polite, friendly, family site and can't wait to go again.

First time I've used this site and got to say I was very pleased with it, arrived at about eight on a Sunday evening and was met by stephen (owner) who was friendly and soon got us pitched and hooked up.

The site itself had suffered from some very heavy rain, and although our pitch was level and not at all boggy those who were off the tarmac access were struggling. However Stephen was doing everything possible to help.

Small shop on site selling basics, toilets were faultless. Play area and games room for the kids.

Bar open from seven in the evening, bar meals served and although not a huge menu I found the food to be fairly priced and really good quality.

Our three children also enjoyed there stay here so will be using again next year!

A really reliable, friendly, family feeling site. Highly recommended.

Just come back today (midnight) from this site in Looe. It is a nice site with a playground. Not anywhere to play things like football etc. though.

The toilets and showers were clean and were cleaned quite often. There was also a place to wash up.

The shop was combined with the reception and sold basic food like milk and bread. Lots of toys in it.

There was a games room with a ps1, computer with internet (£2 for 20 mins) and pool table and football table.

The club was ok and sold bar meals. And it had a bar and did things like karaoke.

The pitches were close together though. There was a max of about 70-90cms between each pitch and it was really busy when we went. The field soon got waterlogged because of all of the rain.

One thing which got took a bit too far was that you had to be in bed by 11:30 because of a site curfew and you only got to take 1 car to a pitch not 2.

Ok site but wouldn't go back to Cornwall as it is too far out and you have to travel 50 miles to get to everywhere which costs a lot in petrol and diesel.

Trains and buses are available from Looe.

The nearest beach is Looe which has lots of shops and little boutique shops.

The eden project is a way away and Monkey World too.
