We were also pitched during 'The Beast from the East'. We can only agree full heartedly with Dartgirl81. The owners went out of their way to ensure we were as comfortable as possible in really extreme conditions, and for that we thank them. It is certainly been added to our list of sites to return. We had a really interesting 10 days in weather we have never seen in Cornwall, made easier by the reactions of the owners.

We were unlucky enough to meet up with 'The beast from the east' during our stay at this lovely tidy, clean and very well run camp site.

This site has a very good approach for towing and for those driving large motorhomes, it is also well sign posted.

The booking process was simple with a very helpful owner named Steve. He gave us the security barrier code and our pitch number to save messing about in the cold when we arrived.

He gave very specific instructions on how to park on our pitch if he wasn't about, we did wonder why, but all was revealed as the pitches have intregra hard standings (plastic mesh, slightly under the grass, so it's not obviously visible) this was ok, but it did get a bit wet and muddy after the snow had thawed. Steve did provide us with some rubber mats for outside our motorhome.

The site had free wi-fi which was excellent, the best we'd ever used, and that includes places where you had to pay.

During the snow and big freeze lots of the standpipes froze (this was happening all around the part of Cornwall we were staying in) but Steve always ensured there was fresh water available from the laundry building.

We were told to use the family disabled showers/facilities as there were only a few of us on the site, and one day the water pressure was so low we couldn't use the shower, the local water board were having major problems in the area with burst pipes.

The site was extremely well kept, and very quiet. It had a small children's playground, a shop (closed for the winter season) and a small bar which Steve and Lena (his wife) opened on Friday/Saturday and Sunday evenings, which was really good, there were usually only about 6 people in the bar, but it was great to have a chat with fellow lunatics (winter campers) and have a drink.

Also, literally at the reception is the bus stop, which we used to catch the bus into Looe to have a look around and shop. There were no supermarkets in Looe but there are 2 Co-ops and the usual seaside shops and pubs.

There is an very large car park in Looe, the mill car park, which is the only place we could have parked our motorhome (FiFi is nearly 8 metres long) there was tons of room here but I guess it would be busy in the summer. If you take up 2 bays, make sure you pay for 2.

Up the road from the site about 10 minutes is the local village, Pelynt, there is a pub and Spa shop which stocked most things, plus there is parking opposite on an old disused garage forecourt, again we could easily park FiFi here.

To sum up

A very well run site, the owners, Steve and Lena were very helpful. The free wi-fi was exceptional and everywhere was well looked after and very clean.

Would highly recommend!

For those looking for more than a field but less than a garish holiday park then this is a great choice. Situated just 8 minutes from Looe, 10 minutes to Talland Bay and Polperro, it is perfectly placed. The owners are just lovely, yes they like things done in a certain way but I think that is all to the good to give everyone a comfortable stay. The children can ride their scooters with care, there is a small green area for conscientious ball games, the play park for toddlers is enough and the bar is great for a glass of something in the dry. The facilities are well kept and yes whilst a little dark, I think this lends itself well to a more traditional style of camping. It has an open feel to the site, no overhanging branches or intrusive shrubbery to hinder getting a suntan! For a small site it has all one needs with a laundry room and small but well stocked shop, games room, take away food. The only tricky thing is the WiFi but I think one can live with that. It's a great base to explore this stunning corner of the world at an affordable cost, if you want activities or entertainment then this isn't the place for you.

Just returned back from a fantastic stay at this beautiful campsite. We stayed for 9 nights and had other half's sister and her man with us for 7 in the awning. It was our first visit here on the back of reviews on here. We will be definitely be returning!

A warm welcome from Steve and Lene on arrival, Steve saw us to our pitch, which was great. Pitch was large as we had already said we had a twin axle with an 8m X 3m awning. Fitted a treat. Pitch 39.

Site is immaculate and a credit to them both. Showers and toilets, though not many, appear to cope quite admirably and always spotlessly clean.

Small shop for essentials and able to order newspapers, which is good. I have to dog sit our jack russell whilst they go out!

Very good local shop with butchers in Pelynt, 5 mins drive. Also The Jubilee Inn in Pelynt which does very good food at lunchtime and reasonably priced, dog friendly too.

Looe and Polperro provide the usual mix of shopping and pasties and a couple of Coop shops. Great Pubs too. Can recommend the Sea Kitchen at lunchtime on Hannaford Road as a great place to have a drink and something to eat on their patio whilst looking out to sea. It's away from the hustle and bustle of Looe and the views good. Also free parking at the end of the road!

We had food at the site bar a couple of times and were not disappointed. Well worth popping to the shop and pre ordering. Very good value, and bar is pleasant also.

Very good location for visiting Looe, Polperro and and other nearby places of interest.

In closing, We will definitely return (But as other reviewers have said, we would rather it be a secret location. )

What a lovely site to find, very warm welcome and everything we may need to know explained to us on arrival. We were given a bus timetable which was very useful, we used this to travel to Liskguard, bus stop being at entrance to site which was a bonus. Sadly we were only here for 2 nights but would be more than happy to return, site is immaculate and could not find anything negative to say about it. A big thankyou

Really enjoyed our visit. The site was very well kept being clean and well tended. The staff were all friendly, welcoming, and accomodating. The facilities were good including a games room and bar area with a family feel.

We had loads of space on our pitch, but mainly because the pitches adjacent to us were empty - it might have been a bit tight if full and we'd put our large awning up.

Great location with easy access to the local beaches and town.

Only stayed for a few nights but would certainly visit again if visiting the area again.

Thanks!
