Just back from a great week at Little Winnick. The site is in a good location - it took us about 30 minutes to walk to Pentewan along the cycle trail, and it's only a short drive to St Austell for supermarkets and shops. There is also a small shop at the filling station in Pentewan. The site shop also sells essentials - and cakes, sweets and ice cream - and also has plenty of leaflets for local attractions and information maps for most of Cornwall. Although there is a fair amount of traffic along the road, it didn't bother us, even though we live on a quiet street.

Toilets and showers always clean and although the shower is push button and the button has to be pressed quite frequently, the water pressure was good and there was plenty of hot water. Showers are free and there are two free hairdryers in the ladies. The ladies toilet cubicles also have sinks. There is a family bathroom with a bath.

The site staff (owner Richard and wardens Mike and Carol) are friendly and very helpful. We phoned on the Friday to ask if we could arrive a night early - Carol and Mike explained how wet the site was but Mike went to look at the grass pitches and they rang us back to say there were a couple of areas we could use so we were good to go. Throughout our stay all 3 (Heidi was away visiting family) were helpful and always willing to give ideas and information.

The Ship Inn in Pentewan is excellent, with bingo nights, quiz nights etc, even out of season, and friendly welcoming staff. The Piskey Cove cafe in Pentewan is also good. We walked to Mevagissey along the Coast Path - took about 1. 5 hours, and also in the other direction to Charlestown (about 4 hours). Truro is about 30 minutes drive and Lands End about 1. 5 hours drive.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again. Good price too - we paid 108 for six nights for 2 adults and an 11 year old, on a grass electric pitch.

This was our second visit here and it was just as good as the first. The site is flat and beautifully kept with laid out numbered pitches and ample water points and bins around the site. The facilities are almost new and of very high specifications and large enough even if the camp is full, I never had to queue and there was usually a choice of showers. Situated next to a road means there is some traffic noise but for a townie like me it was not intrusive and like the rest of Cornwall it seemed to close down after 11pm. St Austell is only 5 minutes drive and has everything you need and the Eden project is close too. The price was ridiculous 10 per night for 2 people and tent and 7 nights for the price of 5, that's 50 for the week. The wifi was brilliant just as fast as at home and cost 15 for the week. We shall return anytime we go to Cornwall, I just hope it doesn't get too crowded as people find out about it.

We have visited this site twice now with our trailer tent. It is a lovely site, level, beautifully kept, very clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return and can definitely recommend it as worth a visit! The situation is also lovely, right by the Pentewan cycle trail and a lovely walk to Pentewan village. Bus to Mevagissey or St Austell is just near the entrance and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are not far away. Only downside is the poor phone signal but then that is not uncommon in a Cornish valley and a feature of many parts of Cornwall.

Stopped here for 2 weeks on the rally field with Bedfordshire Centre Caravan Club.

Really nice and well maintained site with. Shower block always clean and tidy and not too old. On site shop is was good for forgotten essentials but would have been useful if it stocked toilet chemicals.

Site is right on cycle path so you can walk or bike into local village with beech and great pub, only about a mile or half or for something more energetic path goes to Mevagissey but very hilly. Local pub the Ship Inn has something going on most days, our favourite being live bands on Sunday Afternoons in there large beer garden by the old harbour.

Can also recommend the Kingswood which is less than a miles walk from site, not the cheapest restaurant but the food is great.

While in the area the St Austell brewery is worth a visit, the tour price gives tokens to spend in the shop or you can use them for beer tasting, the food in their bar is great.

Although we did not use them the site appeared to have very good laundry facilities too.

Very nice site, very well kept by the owners. Spotless showers and toilets, generous size pitches, good play area for children and large meadow field for dogs. The only downside was the traffic noise, it was constant and very loud. For this reason, we would not visit the site again which is a shame because it is lovely and people do seem to return there so the traffic noise does not bother others. We live in a semi rural area which is very tranquil and quiet so perhaps the traffic noise bothered us more as we are just not used to it.

A lovely site which is level with big pitches. Very well kept. The toilet facilities were excellent. Staff were lovely and very helpful.

We were very lucky with the weather and had sunshine every day. The road was noisy as it is the main road down to Pentewan, but once out of the main parts of the day it was OK.

There is a trail that leads down to Pentewan which takes 45 minutes. Supermarkets are available 10mins by car in St Austell. The site shop had the basics and little bags of sweets which were just right for young shopping forays. The fresh bread was lovely.

Lost gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project were our main draw at this time of the year, but the good weather and finding the small secluded cove at the east of the beach made a fantastic holiday.
