Stayed at Dennis Cove as part of a holiday in a rented Motorhome. Location of this site is perfect as only a 10 minute walk in to Padstow.

Staff incredibly friendly – I was greeted by a lovely lady who explained all of the aspects of the site, facilities, upcoming events and how to get to Padstow.

The site is well maintained and ample facilities available including covered washing up area and laundry. The pitches were of a good size and nice and flat in the field we were in. We stayed in the first field with EHU near to reception and didn’t venture across the rest of the site so can’t comment on that.

Showers were fantastic and it wasn’t a hassle to us to have to use tokens. They were actually the best showers we’d used on our entire trip so no complaints.

On the Thursday night a Wood Fire Pizza van was on site – we didn’t have one however they looked lovely. There was also a pop-up bar from Padstow Brewery and my husband did have a pint which he really enjoyed. A great idea to have these and it was lovely to see lots of holiday makers mixing and relaxing. On the Friday morning a mobile Coffee van was on site for fresh coffee and croissants.

The walk in to Padstow was easy although a bit precarious first thing in the morning with lots of families venturing out along the Camel Trail on rented bikes. We walked with our dog through Padstow and all the way along the beach to the end of the estuary. As you walk away from Padstow along the beach you see some small houses in front of you perched on the hillside. One of those terraced houses has a small café in it (the Rest A While Tea Garden). It’s a lovely spot with great views. We stopped for some lunch and our dog was even treated to her own small plate of biscuits – a really lovely touch.

Another recommendation for dog walkers is the beach at Harlyn Bay. We stopped there for the day before going to Dennis Cove. It’s £4 to park all day (with a big open car park so really easy to park the Motorhome !) and the beach is dog friendly all year round. We had a lovely walk early in the day along the beach and then walked along the coastal path to the café at Trevone Beach.

We stayed up on the top field, no bookings taken for this field but we still managed to get pitched next to our friends despite showing up fairly late on a Saturday in peak season. Pitches do have a slight, erm, pitch to them up there but nothing unmanageable and the trade off is the best view I've ever known on a campsite. Booking in is easy and relaxed, the staff are attentive and polite. Showers are operated by a 40p token available solely from reception and are excellent in every regard. Wash and toilet facilities are smart and very clean, as are the washing up sinks. You can re-freeze ice packs in reception for 40p a go, or use the site's packs for the same price with a small deposit. The Camel Trail is only a few minutes walk away with Padstow a few minutes further. Padstow is a lovely town and being so close is a real boon, especially given the parking charges on the quay. Bike hire is available on the quay for around £15 a day and Wadebridge is about 5 miles on the Camel Trail, a flat and pleasant ride. This is a great place to stay if you want to be central to all the charms North Cornwall has to offer while avoiding Newquay's stag night plague.

Great site stayed 3 nights in July 2 adults & a dog. Great location 5-10 minutes walk on Camel cycle trail to Padstow from side of site, you can also cycle to Wadebridge the other way or walk. Stayed on bottom part of site with electric, a flat fenced small field/ grassed area for about 12 vans. Reception a staff very friendly, shower facilities new and great, takes tokens you buy from reception. Plenty to do from here and lots of dog friendly pubs and places to eat. Would visit again.

Spent 2 nights here and it is a lovely setting, BUT very expensive for what is there, showers are good but if paying £28 per night NOT in high season then 40p for a shower token is bad!? Charging £3. 50 for dogs is uncalled for to as they don't use any more of anything than if we had been without her!

10 minutes walk to the wonderful town of padstow & we had lovely fish & chips at Rick Steins was a highlight!

Great town but we'll over priced site!

Chose this campsite because of its proximity to Padstow centre (about a 10 minute walk). The road to the site is very narrow. Single file only. Check in was easy and everything on site explained. Toilets and showers were plentiful and there was loads of hot water. Tokens for the showers were 40p and lasted ages. We cycle, so the site is ideal for the Camel Trail. We cycled as far as Bodmin (not a lot to see there), but we also went to Wadebridge a couple of times. Not too hilly which was good. We will definitely come back to this site. Although its not the cheapest we've been too, it is certainly to be recommended. We are already planning next years holiday to include this campsite. Give it a go. Padstow is beautiful

Wow, wow, wow! Just returned from a weeks stay at this Campsite with Hubby and our two teenagers, would definitely come again. The owner was very warm and friendly and does not stipulate lots of silly rules, a lot of it is common sense such as respecting your neighbours and surroundings, that respect was carried through even at night because it was quiet from about 10pm.

We stayed in the top field (tent field) right at the top where it was flattish. The rest of the field is on a slope and a bit of a hike to the toilets and washing up sinks - but hey the view at the top more than makes up for it overlooking the Estuary, even Hubby was impressed!

Located right next to pretty Padstow which you can walk to via the camel trail. We also used this site as a great base for getting to see Cornwall we visited St Ives, Newquay, Eden project and Falmouth.

A superb stay at this lovely site in a wonderful location.
