Reviewer: Grantfamily 1 review from this member

We stayed here for a week in one of their wooden lodges. The lodge was spacious and very clean. The decor was a little dated and the furnishings worn around the edges but this did not detract from the comfort of our stay. The location of the sight was lovely, in the middle of the countryside. We went during termtime so the site was quiet, we had the pool to ourselves most of the time! My son enjoyed the playground and the grounds were well maintained and clean. Our dustbin was emptied on a daily basis and there was always a gardener working on the maintenance of the grassy areas. I notice that another reviewer has commented on the lack of staff around. This is true, we picked up our key from the empty office desk and left it in the same place when we left, there didn't seem to be anyone around! Still, we had no problems with anything and it was nice to be 'left to it'. I would recommend this site, I can't comment on the toilet block as we had no use for it but the pool and playground were fine. The location was spot on with st ives a short drive away, it was a great position for exploring the south of cornwall. My only criticism of the site was the restaurant and bar area. It was dated inside and a bit 'working mans club', it didn't really match the rest of the campsite's image, and the food was basic and not very good. The staff were friendly though and there was seating outside so you could enjoy a drink in more pleasant surroundings. Would definitely stay here again.

Returned to Calloose for the 21st year in a row. Swimming pool has been refurbished and water currently nice and warm. Gents toilet block refurbished with new showers and washbasins.

I find the site extremely well placed for all beaches in southwest Cornwall.

Staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Site shop is open daily at 8.30 and has basics like bread, milk, papers and frozen and tinned food. A good range of camping accessories in addition to gas.

Laundrette is good with three washing machines and three tumble driers.

Bar has food and a good range of beers and cider. Entertainment provided by family in the low season but nightly visiting acts in the high season. Can't wait to return and always have a good time.

Safe for children and well away from main roads. Enjoy!

I have just stayed at calloose caravan park, I found the site clean and well maintained. The pool was hot and the children loved playing in it. The park was also very good for the children. The toilet blocks that have just been refurbished was clean and the showers were lovely. The park is in a beautiful vally setting bound with wildlife and flowers, this site is excellent place to unwind and relax I would recommend to anyone. I will definitely be back next year. You can obviously see the site is back to its best

We found this site very good, no trouble with drainage. It stood out how the owners were on the ball keeping the grounds looking good & tidy. Found the staff were pleasant & helpful as we decided to stay an extra night as the weather had picked up & was told we did not have to rush to pack away on our leaving day. Thought the toilets/showers were adequate & had no problems with the temp of water. Overall a lovely pleasant site, will be going back in the future

Reviewer: Bellalouise 1 review from this member

Just returned from a week at Calloose. Quite nice overall but many things they advertise in the brochures are not there. For example, crazy golf, shop (closed). Toilet blocks and washing up facilities could do with a makeover or, at the very least, a good clean! There were dead flies all over the sinks.

The play park area was lovely though, as was the pool (which was heated). However, it was a bit of a ghost town staff wise. On our arrival there was no-one on reception, it was like the Mary Celeste. There's a bell to press for attention which we pressed for the best part of 30 mins but no-one came. We'd travelled a long way with our children so this was not ideal. Eventually a member of staff pulled up and told us to pitch where we liked and that he'd tell the owners of our arrival. We never did see the owners for the whole of our stay which was quite odd and I went to reception loads of times but there was never anyone there.

All in all the site is pretty and the grass well-kept. Lots of space for your van, awning and car.

On first sight what a lovely site, pleasant views and location and beautifully tended gardens. Sadly the layout of this site which is criss-crossed by the only road and the central location of the toilet block made for a very noisy site. Toilets were cleaned at 5am each morning (cleaners arriving by car at this time too) which woke most people, also the main facilities are at the far end of the sit, necessitating all the delivery lorries driving past most of the tent pitches.
The site could have been really nice though, but I understood that it was going to be under new ownership from September - and this was entirely reflected in the general state of haphazard maintenance / cleanliness. I wouldn't come here again, but if you have already booked for next summer, I would imagine it will be run with a bit more care and attention and result in a lovely site.
