Date of Visit: August 2017 Unit:  Static Rating:
Reviewer: Jscadden 6 reviews from this member

For once, we decided to hire a static rather than tow our caravan the 250 miles to The Lizard. We hired a six-berth which consisted of 3 bedrooms. The caravan was clean and well maintained and was spacious enough for three adults and three teenagers. As well as a microwave, cooker and fridge, there was also a good quality TV with a strong Freeview signal. The staff were polite and friendly at all times and did everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible.

There was a well stocked Pub within a marquee as well as a snack bar. There was also a convenience store and pizzeria near the main entrance.

We took a walk round the camping pitch which was very full as it was bank holiday weekend and everyone seemed to be happy with their alfresco cooking well under way. The Sea views were one of the best!

An adjacent holiday site also had a bar which was available to all as was the Parkdean resort just down the road. I can thoroughly recommend The Potter's Bar, a few yards from the park which was a free-house. Kennack Sands was just a short walk downhill. Parking at the beach was 4 a day but limited free parking was available on the way down. Two cafes were situated at the beach.

All in all, there was something to please everyone on site or nearby and was well situated as a base for touring the area. Flambards being only a few minutes drive at nearby Helston.

This is quite a large site. We arrived late after a puncture, the owners were very accommodating, keeping open for later arrivals (we were not the only ones). There are good facilities after a long walk we had a very welcome pizza, there is also a snack bar. The site is well situated for the Coastal Path which is close and, for walkers there is a bus stop by the gate.

Large site with views over the sea. Some areas quite muddy after rain. Bar tent has music, which could bother you if you are nearby. Good Toilets, Showers (coin operated) and washing facilities (extra cost). Wi-Fi available at an extra cost. Electric hook up also available at extra cost. Main shops about a couple of miles away. Plenty of sightseeing and walks around. Child friendly, especially with their static caravans.

Reviewer: Andy-nicki2014 1 review from this member

We loved it here the facilities were excellent plenty of toilet and shower blocks and wash facilities. We had a hook up pitch that was great. There were play areas for kids

We picked our pitch when booking on line that was a bonus although we were on a slight hill

The beer tent was great but not rowdy at all

We didn't eat from the bar hut or pizza place on site but people were recommending them

We hired a fire pit and got logs and kindling from the shop on site

The shop is well stocked and quite reasonable for a convenience store in Cornwall

The views were amazing

Wifi was reasonably priced

Can't wait to visit again

We had an absolutely brilliant stay at Che Carne!

We arrived and headed straight to reception, where we were quickly 'checked in' and given directions to our pitch. Yes, it was on a bit of a slope but nothing that careful pitching can't work around and not a problem for us. Electric hook-up was right next to our pitch.

Toilets and showers were super clean every time we visited and we never had to queue, which was brilliant for August! The temperature of the shower was consistently warm.

The shop was great and had everything we needed, including camping gear, gas and basic food & drink. The snack shack hot dogs were great and service was fast and efficient. We drank in The Marquee Arms, the on site pub, on a number of occasions and found staff friendly and drink prices competitive.

On the Thursday night we went along to the pub quiz and had a really good evening; a great atmosphere. There were no problems during our weeks stay and we always found the staff approachable and helpful.

Our dog was welcomed on site and the whole place had a lovely, relaxed atmosphere, which considering we were there in August, is pretty amazing. Lovely area with lots to do and see.

Wouldn't hesitate in visiting Che Carne again and would definitely recommend it to friends.

Our family stayed at Chy Carne in the first two weeks in August and it has to be said, the site was fantastic! Not only does the site have great views, but is very well maintained, with spotlessly clean toilets and showers, (yes, even in August!)and the owners and staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for their guests. We were in a touring caravan, our son and his family were in a Static van and our daughter and her family were in a tent, so a good all round site for every outfit, we were all very happy with our pitches. The marquee bar is a great idea and promotes a friendly atmosphere. The snack shack was well used for fabulous fish and chips and the pizzas were delicious! Clearly the best site we have been to for a long time for cleanliness and friendliness. We will definitely return next year. The Lizard area is a beautiful place with something for everyone.
