1st time tenting - requested a flat level pitch. And it was perfect. Huge pitch with electric. Site split into several areas, some suitable for families, some quiet and secluded - so something for everyone. Such a peaceful site - no noise at all after about 10pm. Very well kept grounds. Immaculate toilet facilities within easy reach of all pitches. Fabulous outdoor pool area - toddler pool and 2 swimming pools - one heated set in a patio area surrounded by white painted walls, open from 10am to 8pm. On one occasion we had pool to ourselves, felt like we were at a private villa in South of France. On site shop - small but sold everything - even fresh croissants! One negative was that on arrival we went to buy bread which had the following day's date on it. We asked the owner if he had any more fresh coming in. The reply was 'no'. Returned to shop in afternoon for other provisions and the shelves were then stacked with 4 day fresh bread! - felt a little exploited. Reception staff so helpful and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. Lovely courtyard area to sit with a cool drink in the evening and make friends. Small snack bar open from 5. 30 - 8pm. Frozen food but kids enjoyed it. Table tennis, Pool (£1 charge) table football (50p charge) and FREE crazy gold - clubs and balls left outside reception. Brilliant main play park and smaller play areas on each field. Site protected from high winds by huge trees. We had friends who lived locally visit for the day - they were so impressed they asked for brochure to book a quick break away for themselves! 15 mins walk to nearest beach (Carlyon) which had pop up bars and frisby golf for £1. 00. Kids loved it. Clear waters but quite shelving edge to sea so take care with little ones. Cornish market within walking distance but didn't impress me. Kids (ages 12) loved Kidzworld - especially roller skating and high wire - very good value for money. Visited Charlestown, St Austell, Mevagissey & Falmouth but loads more areas easy to reach. Tesco & Asda 5 mins drive away for provisions. Would highly recommend the Holmfirth Inn for family meal - we all licked our plates clean! Would visit again due to peaceful nature and proximity to other areas of Cornwall.

Loved this site. We were welcomed by a very friendly lady - who gave us plenty of information about local area. Our pitch (we paid for a larger, premium pitch) was very spacious, with lovely mowed grass.

What we loved the most about this site, was its location… Excellent walk to the beach, and easy walk to Charlestown (25 minutes)

I cycled to Eden Project, (about 2 miles mostly on a cycle path)

We also took the local bus to Mevagissey. This was easy. A delightful Cornish fishing village !

Even though we were staying at a busy time… It didn't feel busy, or crowded. We found the little shop very useful. My husband and son loved the crazy golf… Which is free !

We would definitely return to this site.

We have visited this site nearly every year since 2004. Despite trying other sites we always return here with our 3 children -who also love this site. It is perfection and even though we have been on 5* holiday abroad nothing can beat this site. Excellent in every way and already booked on for 2016.

Just returned from an 8 night stay. A very well organised campsite with a relaxed feel. Friendly welcome by Jeff and francis, nothing is to much trouble. Huge pitches and the best facilities I have ever seen. Lots to do for children, even if it rains. The pools are great. FREE showers that we only had to queue for once and always very clean. ( no expense sparred on the fitting out). The nearby beach is beautiful and very big. There are works going on where the old building was but still loads of space left. ( don't let this put you off). There is a beach cafe behind the info centre. A MUST VISIT. Also on some evenings there are temp cafes etc on the beach. , It has a real med feel to it.

Overall it is a great place to stay and very central for days out as near to A390. The only downside of this is if you are in Duporth field you will hear slight road noise when the campsite goes quiet at 10. 30pm if you are in a tent. Will definitely return.

We stayed there for 5 weeks and will return definitely. A must visit campsite.

The owners are very nice and helpful people.

Pitches are enormous which is good as we have a big unit.

The facilities are very clean, plenty of hot water.

Tesco and Asda are very close, Tesco is within walking distance and there is an indoor Cornish market 500 yards away, very handy.

We only returned from this site on Sunday, and we wish we were still back there!

Can't recommend it enough! Even on the arrival the view is great. Reception was welcome and you can ask anything. Area is well laid out with plenty of room for every pitch. Shower facilities were good. Our 1 years old son especially loved baby bath that was in the shower/toilet unit, it made our life so much easier with him. Washing area is good, you have a store with all essentials and I found that prices were very reasonable compared to other campsites we have been to.

Our 2 nieces loved the swimming pools. It felt like we are abroad and not in UK :) We had great weather the whole week, so girls were basically in the pool every spare time they had. Plenty of activities to do on the site, mini golf, kids playing area, table tennis. They even have TV room, but we just didn't have time to use it.

Tesco or Asda supermarkets are only 2 miles away.

The beach is only 5-10 minutes walk from the site. There are so many flowers on the site, it just so pretty. Well looked after site! One of our best we have visited! We would definitely come back there again and no wonder they are fully booked!
