An outstanding campsite in a fantastic location. Spotless loos and hotel-standard shower blocks (two, one with underfloor heating) with sensible arrangements of hooks and curtains/doors to keep clothes dry. Spacious, well kept pitches. Lovely children's play area. Delightful staff, well stocked shop and a small cafe. Perfect - and we had amazing blue skies in April. Good wifi for a fee but can only work one device at a time.

The walk to Padstow is a good half hour across stiles and down a hill - lovely at all times of day. We took bikes and cycled the Camel Trail one day, went to Trevone another. We also took the ferry and walked Rock to Polzeath and back. The only day we took the van off the site, we went to Lanhydrock at Bodmin and had a fab time there, enjoying the new off-road cycling track as well as beautiful gardens.

This is a great site. We have stayed here during the Easter holidays for the previous 3 years and plan on returning, again and again. Booking and checking in are easy and friendly. Staff on site are friendly, helpful and hardworking. Each time we go there have been improvements to the facilities, last year it was upgrading the play area (which our 9 & 7year olds love) and one of the toilet/shower blocks and this year the other toilet/shower block have been given a facelift. The site is always well maintained and attractive, the toilet/shower blocks are always clean. There are plenty of showers & toilets and we never had to queue. The showers were always lovely and warm. The ladies now has an extra area with additional mirrors, hairdryers (which actually dry your hair!) and sockets for your own dryers/straighteners.

There is an on site shop and café but we didn't use them so can't comment.

The journey to the site is easy, no danger of getting stuck in a narrow Cornish lane, if you follow the directions on their website. The site is close to Padstow's park and ride, £4 per car, very handy during busy seasons.

This part of Cornwall never fails to wow us with its beauty and stunning coast line. We think this is a fantastic site from which to explore the area. There are endless wonderful beaches to explore. The Camel trail is lovely. We hired from Padstow Cycle hire and stopped at 'The Shed' cafe in Wadebridge (very friendly staff and delicious bacon sarnies, huge hot chocolates!) When in Padstow try the yummy produce at the Chough Bakery and Harbour Ices. Chips Ahoy is a delicious and queue-free alternative to Rick Stein's takeaway.

Can't recommend this site highly enough, we love it.

Fantastic site. Ideal for families or couples alike. Very impressive toilet block with first class showers and baby changing facilities which are kept immaculately clean. Close to numerous safe sandy beaches. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Dogs welcome Safe play area for children. There is a walk directly from the site to Padstow via a public footpath where there is easy access to the Camel Trail an historic disused railway ideal for cycling and walking.

Our second visit and we are even more impressed this time - we will be back!

All in all a gem of a site.

Went to Padstow to visit a friend for a few days and found this wonderful site on UK campsites. I was very warmly welcomed on arrival and found all the staff I spoke to during my stay to be very helpful and polite. The campsite facilities were excellent, spotlessly clean and very modern. The shop is well stocked with all the basics and a few extras too. I sat in the coffee lounge and read for a while it was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so.

I took my sat nav with me but knowing what they are like I also noted down the directions from UK campsites, which my sat nav followed perfectly and I ended up a mile away from where I wanted to be, but got there in the end after calling the site and getting further directions. I will be using this site again. Soon.

This is a very clean site and well maintained, however the first time I used the shower block the shower cubical I used started filling up with water the drainage was poor and there was nowhere to stand that was dry as I thought the water was going to seep under the door.

The water and grey waist point on our pitch was in a hedgerow and was unable to get the waist hog or the water drum close to the drain for emptying or the tap for fresh water. I had to buy 2m of hose to fill the drum, luckily there was an adaptor on the tap to push the hose on to until some kind sole pinched it. So off I went back to the site shop to buy another tap connector, the young lady said that there always go missing?? Other than that the one way system doesn't seem to apply or the 5 mph speed limit. I would use this site again but please cut back the hedges so we can get to empty the waist and get at the water tap.

The booking process was really easy, and there was not a problem when we needed to change the dimensions of our booking after upgrading our tent.

The pitch size was fabulous. We were on a deluxe pitch due to the size of our original tent, and it was level with enough room for tent, windbreak, car, motorbike and cycle rack, with plenty of room for another car if we'd wanted.

Toilet blocks were regularly cleaned, even at 6. 30am! and we never had to queue for a shower, even with the site being well occupied. The only complaint would be the strip light on the side of the toilet block which was lit all night and quite bright - put it this way we were two pitches away from it and didn't need a light in our tent to get ready for bed as there was plenty bleeding through from the strip lamp.

Great site facilities with well stocked shop, (including cold beers!), laundry, chemical disposal, dog field, playground etc etc. Very quiet at night, and OK to use BBQ's.

Easy reach to Padstow along footpaths from the site, through fields of sheep and past Tescos.

Would certainly recommend and be happy to return here.

We stayed July/August 2014 in our combi camper, as a couple with our dog

The site is well presented and clean nicely spaced out pitches, we stayed on a deluxe pitch with electric and water and a level pitch

The toilets and showers were clean, there is one block newer than the other one, we used the older block, not my personal favourite design of showers but plentiful hot water and pleasant to use. There is a launderette which looked brand new plenty of equipment in there dryers, washers and I think there was ironing equipment too.

Potwash was indoors just like your own kitchen, and freezer for customers use too

The service lads were very busy and kept the site immaculate well mowed and bins regularly changed

We enjoyed the mobile services of the visiting chip shop, shellfish pig and pizza on varying nights

The site is accessed via a shared road which could do with a bit of upgrading, but the site itself overlooks the countryside and is in a nice position, there is a pathway from the site which comes out near Tesco, turn right and walk down the hill to the estuary/camel trail and its a short walk into Padstow, the walk is not suitable from the site for anyone with impaired mobility or on a bike as there are stiles to negosiate

The children play area looked very good

My only critism is the dog exercise area is far too small

We really enjoyed our stay so much we've just booked for next year

We stayed here for 4 nights on a pitch with electric. The site is fantastic, toilet facilities are spotlessly clean and there are plenty - we never had to queue. Pot washing room was also fantastic. The new play area for children was fabulous. We had a great time at this site which is in an ideal location for visiting Padstow and there are numerous beautiful beaches and bays within a few miles of the site. Staff at the site were very welcoming and we will be back next year

This is a beautiful site, with pitches divided into small groups by hedges which afforded both privacy and shelter. EAch pitch was a generous size. Each hook up point served four pitches, but we returned a couple of times to find ours had been unplugged so that someone else could use it. This would suggest that they are a little far away from some pitches. The walk to the toilet block is a little far if you end up at the far side of the site, but it's well worth it. The facilities in the toilets/showers and laundry are second to none we have seen (and we have seen a lot!) Generous sized shower rooms, a relaxing seating area, hairdryers and sockets in the shower block. There was comfortable seating in the laundry, and they even provided an iron and ironing board. All communal areas were kept exceptionally clean. They even played music in the blocks. There is a well stocked little shop and a cafe, but we never used it.

They advertise supper nights. Fish n chips one night, and pizza the next. Get your order in as soon as it arrives, or like us, you will be disappointed as the pizza van couldn't accommodate our order due to his back log.

It's located conveniently for Padstow which is beautiful. There is a countryside path which is about a mile into Padstow, but it only took about ten minutes to cycle there (via the road, path not suitable for bikes), but it's up hill coming back. The nearest pub is in Padstow.

It's a great site for exploring Cornwall. If you have a camper, you must go to Porth, where you can park on the beach all day for £4. 00.

All in all a fantastic site, and if we ever visit that part of the country again, we would return.

Reviewer: Landauman 13 reviews from this member

This is a nice site just outside of Padstow, the staff were very helpful, the facilities are very modern, however I did find that the unisex shower block took a bit of getting used to, but they were first class. Their is about a ten minute walk to the bus stop, and they ran about 40mins late they days we were their, 5mins drive away is a Tesco, and also next to the Tesco is a park and ride service, my only complaint is the amount of dogs on site, with some constant barking.
