We have just returned from silversands today. Just to say what a really lovely campsite it is. Very well laid out. Fantastic toilet and shower facilities. Lovely flowers and trees and palms. The owners of the site are so lovely. Great for children and a super playground and sandpit and a short walk to the beach at kennack sands. A great place to stay and will be returning next year.

I cannot rate this campsite highly enough. My husband and I stayed with our dog for 5 nights and it was simply perfect. It is a small, quiet site; perfect for families and those looking for a break away from it all. For dog owners, it is really dog friendly, with a huge designated dog walking field. Most pitches are separated with hedges or trees and the facilities (toilets/ showers/ laundry/ washing up) are all great. There is a useful little information hut with lot of leaflets for things in the local area together with some things to borrow such as books, DVDs etc.

We spent our time exploring the local area - the (dog friendly) beach which is just a 15 mins walk and we decided to do a further 3 hour coastal path hike to nearby Coverack. The views were simply stunning - really breathtaking. Admittedly the hike nearly killed us but we were able to get a dog friendly taxi back to the site!

The site was quiet by about 9:30pm each night and overall it is very peaceful. The owners are really lovely and the site is an absolute credit to them. I will definitely return.

Stayed for 2 nights on this campsite in this lovely part of Cornwall. Booked at short notice but owners very accommodating.

There is quite a long single track road down to the site. Site very well kept, we had probably one of the nicest and most spacious pitches I have ever stayed on with electric hook up. Site has lots of pine trees and at night an owl was calling in the tree above our pitch. Generally very peaceful at night.

Showers, toilets and washing up facilities all very clean and plentiful. Great play areas and a sand pit for children.

There is a good, fairly level woodland walk down to a very nice beach which was dog friendly on one side and not too busy. The only downside was no pub or shop within walking distance but a small price to pay for such a great site.

We have just returned home after enjoying five days at this fantastic site. We give this site top marks for friendliness of the owner's, and their helpfulness. Cleanliness of the site, the facilities are excellent, even the dog could not wait for his morning walk around the lovely dog field. The pitches are of a great size with lovely hedges between pitches. We also enjoyed the perfect peace and tranquillity. We cannot recommend this site enough and would encourage friends and family to visit it. This site is excellently placed to visit all the places situated around the lizard and south west Cornwall. We shall definitely return.

We normally stay in our T25 VW campervan but as it was still in Winter storage (and the nights were still cold when we've got 2 children to consider!) we decided to spend our Easter break in one of Silver Sands newest 2015 3 bedroom static caravans (with bliss of all bliss central heating throughout!) The cost was very fair for the Mon-Fri break on one of our new favourite campsites!

Immaculately clean and modern (having only been used for a few weeks before) it was very well equipped with beautiful homely linen bed covers and big thick duvets(one of my pet hates is the bog standard 1990's bed linen normally provided in caravans)

Kell the owner offered fantastic customer service as I emailed at 11. 30pm asking for internal pics of the caravan (am a bit fussy about these things!) expecting a reply in the morning and she emailed me straight back! She was so friendly on our arrival and made us feel so welcome (without being over bearing) offering lots of helpful information on local eateries etc.

On entering the van we were welcomed by a lovely tea and coffee pack with the addition of two lovely chocolate eggs for the kids - how very thoughtful and a great start to our holiday!

The site is just perfect for kids wanting to get back to the art of just playing. No entertainment centre but two perfect parks - one for under 6's and one for under 14 year olds plus room for the odd frisby, ball game or hide and seek, oh and of course a great sized sand pit, all within visible distance of the majority of pitches, so can be rest assured they are playing safely with their new friends.

We enjoyed the 15-20min walk through the beautiful woodland to the perfectly quiet (but with two lovely cafes) Kennack Sands with stream running through it - great for dam building!

It is a short drive to The Lizard where we enjoyed the most fantastic fish and chips at The Smugglers Fish and Chip Shop (highly recommended)

We parked here on our walk to Kynance Cove - which is simply stunning (only a small donation requested for parking better than the 4. 00 at the National Trust car park even when it was an hour from closing!) Do be aware it is a hilly walk so not great for those with mobility issues but we managed it with a 7 and 2 year old (don't bother with the pram though!)

Back to the campsite I can't comment on the camping toilets but they had a separate family bathroom, laundry room and under cover dish wash area which all looked really clean.

Had a lovely drive via Porthleven (quay with some lovely little shops) to Penzance for a bit of shopping, then back via Marazion with it's fantastic long beach and St Michael's Mount should you wish to visit) also had a play in their beach play park for the kids)

Overall we just had the most perfect chilled out holiday not rushing from one place to another and allowing the kids plenty of time to play in the parks, we will definitely return with our campervan to this perfect little campsite.

Well done to Kell and Nick for getting right what so many campsite owners get so wrong!

One of the best sites we have visited in Cornwall because it is well kept and extremely peaceful. The final mile is along a narrow track but this only added to its charm - definitely not a site to go if you need lots of entertainment as it is away from it all and yet only a 15 minute walk to the beach. Great for dogs with its wonderful dog exercise area in the next field. The site is pretty and planted with lovely trees and shrubs making it a very pleasant spot indeed.

There are plenty of showers and toilets, all spotlessly clean although perhaps a bit dated. Never had to queue for the facilities. Excellent laundry room including ironing facilities and freezer in washing up area (no charge for ice blocks etc. ) Although we didn't have children with us, I noted that the playing space was way beyond anything we had encountered in Cornwall only a few years ago with our own children. There was plenty of space for games and an excellent playground with quality wooden play equipment plus seats around for adults to sit on while supervising their kids. There was also a play space for younger children in a separate area.

You do need a car to visit local villages: Cadgwith, Coverack, St Keverne, Lizard, Helston plus all places on the Helford river are within a half hours drive or less. We found the campsite a great central spot from which to visit favourite places - don't miss the beach and cliff walks of Kynance Cove.

All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would definitely use this site again to stay on the Lizard.
