From the moment you enter Little Winnick you can tell the care that has been put in place.

No litter, grass is cut on a very regular basis.

The toilet block has improved by 10 fold, with it being brand new.

Personally I did not like the chrome drainaway lids between the cubicles as reflection into the next cubicle could be embarrassing. Would certainly recommend a visit to Little Winnick especially as we have been back twice and our daughter loved it too

Had another wonderful week here, a very friendly and spotless site. Stayed last year, this year bought friends with us, we have both booked for next year. An all round Wonderful place to relax. Only downfall is the nearby beach isn't dog friendly. But paying for a weekly bus ticket, we could travel anywhere round Cornwall. Will recommend this campsite any time, and have already recommended it to two families.

Wow !. Absolutely amazing site in every way - can't recommend it highly enough. The location is great with loads of great walks/cycle routes and intersting/scenic places to visit. St Austell is 3 miles away by footpath or 5 mins in the car or alternatively by bus which stops right outside the campsite. Pentewan is 1 mile away by footpath (Recommend the Ship Inn which has a great beer garden). Lost Gardens of Heligan are only a 30 minute walk away (you get a 20% discount off the entry fee if you arrive on foot) and Mevagissy is approx an hours walk (picturesque harbour).

The site itself is immaculately maintained and has a brand new toilet/block for 2015. Best of all we were only £92 for 7 nights with EHU. Will definitely be back.

Lovely site in great area for discovering Cornwall. All the pitches are flat and a good size, with plenty of trees all around. The toilet block was adequate and clean but a bit tired however I believe this is going to be replaced over the winter. The surrounding towns have all the usual facilities, shops, supermarkets and restaurants, everything you would need. There is plenty to see in the area once you get used to the narrow roads.

This is a great site run by a very nice family. The Clemo's are very experienced site owners running as they do the successful River Valley site up the road.

Excellent value for money: we paid just £12. 00 per night which was in stark contrast to the over £20. 00 per night we had paid for a Caravan Club site in Devon before arriving in Cornwall.

The family acquired the site in January 2013 and decided to re-name it to distance themselves from any previously held bad impressions people may have had. They have already spent many thousands of pounds on improvements and will be building new toilet and shower facilities over the winter. There is a dis-used swimming pool in one corner of the site which is going to be filled in at some point and will not be re-opened.

The pitches are spacious; either hard standing or grass; with or without electric points.

The toilet blocks are cleaned to a high standard every day and there is always hand soap and toilet tissue available. We were delighted to see that there is a mop a bucket available for cleaning up because for some extraordinary reason, the Caravan Club do not provide these any more!

There is a laundry: £3. 00 wash and. 50p drier. Unusually there are also a couple of rather ancient whirly type washing lines which were very useful.

Yes, the road is a bit busy but we didn't notice road noise particularly but this would probably affect people in tents more. We fell asleep to the sound of the river running along behind us.

We cannot rate for child friendliness because we don't have any but there is what appears to be a newly equipped play area for small children and plenty of grass areas in which to play.

The site office, manned either by family members or staff sells basic groceries such as local bread (delicious!) and fresh eggs etc. The staff bend over backwards to be as helpful and informative as possible, e. G. , they have prepared a list of what must be almost every dog friendly beach in Cornwall which was ideal for us as has already been mentioned in other reviews, you cannot take dogs onto the nearest beach in Pentewan.

The surrounding villages, coves and countryside are a delight although we found some of the lanes tricky in our MH. Finding a petrol tanker or large tractor coming the other way is heart-stopping stuff but with a bit of luck and good management we got by!

We decided to finish our week with a meal at the nearby Kingswood Bar and Restaurant which, whilst a bit pricey was excellent in terms of quality of food and service.

We had a lovely relaxing week and met some really friendly people on site. We've all said we will be back next year!

Just back from a weeks stay at this lovely little site. Dog and child friendly we were on a grass hook up pitch which was nice and flat with no grass cuttings insight and I have to say one of the largest we have experienced with plenty of room for your set up and room for the car too. Toilets although dated were always clean and considering the site was full with mainly families I thought this was a good sign. The shop is open early and closes late and sells the usual essentials with sweets for the kids being a favourite of ours. Great dog walks and a lovely walk along the river into Pentewan with a stop off at The Ship Inn for a drink. All in all a good site well based to travel around Cornwall only downside for us was the noise from traffic it is on the main route into Mevagissey so gets very busy. Would be better if fenced around that edge of park to buffer some of the noise. Would I return to this site yes just not on a pitch facing the main road.
