Well run park about 1. 5 miles out of Padstow. Ideal for touring the area. There is a walk into town across several fields which can be a bit messy in the wet. Bus service outside the site is also a bit haphazard with there timetable.

Site can be breezy and toilet blocks are showing there age.

Port Isaac (Doc Martin) is stunning and well worth a visit. Along with Tintagel. If you like it a bit more lively try Newquay.

Not much near the site food wise - But Padsow is full of Restaurants to suit all types of pocket. Paul Ainsworth at No6 is superb but for deep pockets (160 for 2 adults)and you need to book well in advance.

For the active try the Camel trail, for walking or cycling along. It follows the old rail line along the Camel estuary so its nice and flat. We managed to do the 12 miles to Wadebridge and back. Plenty of places to hire cycles down at the harbour.

We stayed for one week. I asked for a pitch away from the loos etc as I was taking my dog and people going past would possibly make him bark.

We had a lovely big pitch in a nice quiet area, lovely flat pitches all over. Bright and clean site. Small shop 9-5 hours. Toilets/showers clean and perfectly good, hot water. No need for coins or tokens for shower.

Campsite entry in and out is barrier controlled with number plate recognition. One night we came in about 10. 30 and couldn't get the thing to recognise our numberplate - tried again a few nights later and it worked - think it was our incorrect approach angle previously :-/

We were told that there was a footpath to padstow from site and there was. 1/2 mile to a small tesco store and a further 1/2 mile into town. We walked this most days to save on driving and parking. Could be a bit difficult if you are unable to climb a stile or dry stone wall step (elderly or with young kids/pushchairs) but then maybe a mile walk would put you off anyway!

The staff were friendly, helpful, and this was a brilliant little campsite. We don't have kids but there is a little play area, lots of kids take bikes as its flat and safe to cycle about on.

We took our dog and so did most other people there! every type of dog conceivable and all very well behaved. To be kept on a lead at all times.

I would certainly go there again - thank you padstow touring park for a lovely holiday and thank you padstow town for being so dog friendly!

Firstly the landscaping on site is very nice and we were allocated a good spacious pitch. However, this park is promoting itself with a five star AA rating and based on this expectation it is very disappointing.

There are a number of areas in view that are not pretty, old seemingly abandoned caravans in a storage area, old commercial style waste bins, grass cuttings piled high near pitches etc. But worst of all the loo and shower facilities are not five star. The block to the rear of reception is the best with individual shower rooms, the main blocks are grim, acro props and wonky wood in the ladies supporting the roof and no apparent cleaning on the first day we were there.

The walk to Padstow is fine, although a longish mile but a note to dog owners. The styles are not very dog friendly, especially if your dog is a little older. They are high stone styles with nasty drops and others are broken with nails sticking out, we had to lift our pooch over!

On the plus side check in was efficient and the handout provided very good. For motorhomers the waste water point was impossible for our 7m van due to placement of gas tanks behind and a grass cutting trailer to the side, no wonder the people on the pitch next to us drained their waste water on the pitch! Just did not live up to five star expectations.

Enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly welcome.

8. 00 in total for two dogs for two nights seems excessive. Especially when the other sites we stayed at on our way down didn't charge and were the same per night if not less.

Pretty easy 20 min walk into Padstow. Take a torch for on the way back.

Toilet blocks very clean and never busy.

Pitches were quite level. Can't comment on closeness as the park wasn't full.

Enjoyed our evenings at St Petrocs Bistro and Margots restaurant. Overall a very good stay and very good weather.

Just back from a 5 night break, this site is really great, well kept clean and tidy, showers were hot and clean, wash up area kept clean and tidy. We loved the way the barrier worked as it meant we did not have to worry about being back by a certain time. The pitch was large enough for us to have car parked next to us My only comment would be the campsite is surrounded by farmland with very noisy sheep, you get an amazing sun rise. Padstow is within easy walking and having tesco down the road was great when you run out of milk.

Stayed here for two weeks, thoroughly enjoyed the site, spacious pitches, friendly staff. Good location, only 20mins walk into Padstow across the fields. Tesco very close & handy for those emergencies.

Toilet/showerblock spotless. Our only criticisms are the showers, in the block furthest from reception really need to be upgraded, old holes in tiles grouted over & there were two old cubicles which let down the rest of the block, also they are all the push button type & don't stay on long enough. The ones I tried lasted an average 10-15 seconds.

Overall though an excellent site. We will be returning. Soon.
