A wonderful campsite. We first stayed here and camped in 2013 and it was our first camping experience, since then we have been back each year culminating in a stay in one of the Glamping pods this year. The site is kept immaculately and is run by a lovely, friendly family who will do anything to help. The toilet/wash/shower block is spotlessly clean seemingly all the time. It is also in a great location to enable you to visit most areas very easily.

I cannot recommend this site enough. I was thinking of not recommending it as it may make it harder to book but I think it is the least the owners deserve!

We were surprised when we were able to book a short break at Gunvenna at short notice but were glad we did. It's a lovely, spacious, well-maintained site with good facilities. Pitches around the site are all large and ours easily accommodated our 8m x 4m tent with space outside for eating and car. The owners are friendly and welcoming and will try to help in any way they can.

Facilities are spotless. The showers and toilets are tiled, look relatively modern and were always clean. Space for dishwashing was perhaps limited at the peaks of mealtimes, but everyone managed and the site was very nearly full. Water was hot and free, no paying for showers or anything. 20p for the hairdryer in the ladies I'm told. Dog showers, wetsuit washing, family bathroom - Gunvenna seems to accommodate most requirements. You can even borrow a thermal brick to put your disposable barbecue on to avoid spoiling the grass.

There's no facility for meals on site, so you will have to visit local restaurants, pubs, takeaways, or cook your own. And there's no bar on site either where you might gather to drink and socialise. The site is therefore fairly quiet after about 10pm when it gets dark.

There's a park for the kids and a games room. This is home to a pool table and an air hockey table. These were reasonably priced to play. Wi-Fi signal is at its strongest here although we were able to receive a signal on our pitch which was one of the furthest away. That said, wi-fi was one of the services you do need to pay for and didn't seem particularly cheap although we didn't investigate if the cost was per pitch, or per device.

The site isn't lit at night, other than the light from the shower/toilet block, but we prefer this. (We were pitched under a light in our previous site and it never got properly dark!) So you might need a head torch if you're one of those who need to visit the loo in the night, if only to find your way back.

Out and about it's a good location, but doesn't have the choice of beaches available that some sites do. Polzeath is the nearest, and only, beach within a few miles. Harlyn, Constantine and others are reachable but require a bit of a drive to get there. For our short break we didn't mind being limited to Polzeath. For a longer stay we like to venture to different beaches. Tintagel is within easy reach. If you want to brush shoulders with the rich and famous Rock is only a short drive away. Wadebridge is the nearest town with its Tesco extra for shopping and access to the Camel Trail should you have your own bikes or want to hire some.

Overall, it's a great site and we liked it, a lot. We'd certainly go back again as it suits our needs perfectly. Perhaps we'd like a bar, but that's just us.

Just returned home after a 4 night visit in our bell tent and can not wait to return. Beautiful site spotless. The grass was in amazing condition considering it's the end of the season. The facilities were spotless plenty of toilets, showers even disabled bathroom with baby bath in which was so spacious. The owner and family/ staff obviously take great pride in keeping this site in such a high standard. Used the dog shower, which is a god send after taking the dog on the beach. In the washroom it had every thing a sink to soak, washing machine spinner and dryer reasonable prices as well.

This is a wonderful campsite set in the hills; offering a lovely view as well as peace & quiet. It isn't very big and is beautifully looked after. The family owners are friendly and helpful.

The toilet block is well maintained and plenty of toilets, sinks and showers. As well as 4 washing up sinks and a washing machine and 2 driers.

The indoor pool is also well maintained and was well used by my daughter. The children also enjoyed using the games room. The children's play area looked great!

We were only here for 5 days but wished we had booked for longer. Will definitely be coming back. I could not fault it at all.

It is a drive to the nearest shops but the on site shop stocked a good range of 'emergency' items plus the fresh croissants for breakfast were divine!

We spent 10 days in one of their hexagon glamping pods and loved every minute. We usually camp with a tent but thought we would 'glamp' this year and definitely recommend.

The site itself is very good. Very quiet at night. Brilliant park for the kids, even a swimming pool, which is only small but just right for a cool dip! I thought there were adequate showers with plenty of hot water. Enough pot wash sinks, recycling and laundry room. The small games room was a favourite with our 12 year old. There is a small fully stocked shop on site.

The site Is an ideal base for touring around north Cornwall. The beaches at Polzeath and Rock are brilliant for surfing, body boarding etc. We also did Coasteering from Polzeath, with ERA Coasteering which was superb! I recommend a visit to Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed. Also take your bikes as the Camel trail is excellent.

Would definitely stay again.

Just returned from 10 days at Gunvenna. What a fantastic site it is! It is really well kept with (friendly) staff members always to be seen around the site doing something. The pitches are a really good size and we never felt overcrowded at all. The toilets and showers were really well kept and cleaned numerous times during the day. There was always plenty of hot water in the showers, which were free of charge. The new kids play park was great and that and the larger playing field kept ours (aged 5 and 7) occupied most of the time with friends that they made. We also used the swimming pool quite a lot and that never got overcrowded, in fact there were times when we were the only ones there! The site is really well placed with Padstow, Port Isaac, Rock, Tintagel and Boscastle all within easy reach, as are the numerous beaches in the area (Daymer Bay is a favourite with us). The site shop is quite small, but stocks the essentials. Larger scale shopping can be found at the convenience store in Rock or at supermarkets in Wadebridge.

All in all we had a great time and we will definitely be returning next year.
