We stayed at Little Winnick near Mevagissey, in the middle of a not very pleasant Indian 'Summer'. It rained, blew and the sun shone as well during the week we were there. That's enough of a review on the weather, now for the site. It's lovely, we got a fantastic deal on price and the pitch was a very nice one, with ample space for our Lunar Lexon 540, awning and car. The facilities, toilets, showers etc are first rate, (New), there's even a bath available. There's a beautiful path about a mile and a half long, to Pentewan, a tiny village with a nice pub. This walk is by a small shallow river, where our Tibetan Terrier, Archie had a ball, paddling. Mobile coverage was poor but wifi is available, 15 for the week. Nice site, good staff, great facilities. Please leave room for us though.

Just spent four nights at this site on our first visit to it.

Great staff, New toilet block which was kept in immaculate condition.

Bus stop outside the site with regular service to St Austell and Mevagissey. From St Austell good public transport to virtually anywhere. Also good for cycling and coastal footpaths and a short walk to the beach via the old railway line to Pentewan village.

Very Flat site and the most reasonable site(in terms of cost)I have come across at this time of year. 12 a night with hook up last week.

Plenty of hard standing and grass pitches with hook ups and some grass pitches without hook up.

Local village of Pentewan has a nice Pub (The Ship)which does good food at very fair prices and the last bus back from the village is at 11pm.

There is a walk back alongside the river which is really good in daylight but the main road is quite busy and I would not recommend walking back to the site on this road at any time.

TV reception is a bit 'iffy'so if you want to watch the box get a pitch with a booster plug which is only available on a certain number of pitches.

Surprised to hear that the site was closing for the winter at the beginning of October as there were at least 25 units on the site when we were there.

Well worth a visit. Some kids facilities but an excellent site for Adults who want a good location. Some road noise but not a problem.

A really good site which we are looking forward to returning to in 2016

Nice friendly site and not too big. Walking distance to Pentewan a nice little village and the Ship Inn is most definitely recommended. Near to the Lost Gardens go Heligan and the Eden Project. The walk is beside the river and then through the woods and great for walking the dogs

Mobile phone reception is non-existent for 3 users and TV reception very hard to tune and only limited tv points on some pitches so check beforehand if you need your TV fix.

Good rates as well.

Had a 10 day stay at this touring site. The site itself was well laid out with a choice of grass or hard stand pitches of a decent size, not the biggest but enough. There are very clean and modern shower blocks and toilets, however the showers had a very poor water flow particularly at peak times. Laundry facilities were adequate although 2 machines were waiting repair. For anyone desperate to do a wash there is an excellent launderette in St Austell who will do a service wash and dry at a reasonable price. There is a small play area for children and the things to do and weather report posted on the blackboard was a great idea for anyone on a first visit to Cornwall.

The area is pretty with good cycle paths and walks for the energetic and very central for visiting most of the 'must see places' around Cornwall, St Ives and St Mawes 2 of our favorites. St Austell is a 5 min drive away with all the essential shops.

All in all a great area and a good campsite as a base.

2nd visit here and again it didn't disappoint. Brilliant location and excellent pitch sizes. The shower and toilet block was always kept clean and tidy and had ample showers so hardly ever had to wait. The site itself is immaculate and well looked after. It's location is great for walks along the river to the pub at Pentewan and Mevagissey.

Although the new shower and toilet block are great the only downside is that there is no plug sockets in the ladies block unlike in the old shower block last year!

Overall a brilliant well kept site with great friendly staff.

My wife and I have just returned from an eight night stay here and this is the first time I have ever felt it necessary to write a review.

The site was perfect for what we needed, but I am sure it would be great for any type of visitor. We walked the short distance to the beach and pub at Pentewan several times, but we also found Mevagissey and St Austell to be within walking distance. It is also only a short drive to lots of fantastic places like the Eden Project and St Maws.

The facilities are new, frequently cleaned, and there are plenty of showers and loos for the size of the site. The staff and owners could not be more helpful and the whole place had a really friendly feeling.

Highly recommended !
