Polmanter is a bigger site than we would normally choose, but we selected it mainly because of its location near to St Ives – and were glad we did. Although large, the layout of the site and the screening hedges between pitches provide a lot of privacy. It might be different in the high season, but when we were there the site was surprisingly quiet. The leisure facilities are excellent, especially the immaculate heated outdoor pool and the adjoining bar and restaurant – we only had a drink here, but it's very pleasant, and the takeaway food service is a great idea. There are also tennis courts and a small pitch and putt golf course, and the shop is well stocked. The toilet and shower block that we used was modern and spotlessly clean. You can walk into St Ives from the site, or there's a good and regular bus service that goes from the site entrance to the town centre. St Ives itself is lovely, with great beaches, interesting shops and galleries and plenty of good places to eat (we especially enjoyed the Porthmeor Beach Café). We also took the train from here to Penzance, which was very good value. A very good site that would be particularly attractive to families with young children, near to a lovely seaside town.

We normally stay at Ayr caravan site when visiting St Ives but this time it was full. However Polmanter was a good substitute. Toilets and showers were always clean and well maintained, staff very polite and helpful. There is a pool on site and a bar serving food each night. Dogs are allowed into the conservatory part of the pub and there is an excellent field for dog walking. You can walk down to town but there is a regular bus service to and from the site to centre of town - dogs accepted. Cost is £1. 50 per person each way.

If I have a gripe it was the cost. The season is now over but we paid £88 for 3 nights - there was a £10 charge in this for the dog. As I feed the dog I am assuming this is the pro rata rate for staff to empty the dog poo bin in the dog walking park. It's a bit steep to charge £3. 33 per night for my dog to sleep in my 'van and eat food which I supplied. It's my only complaint.

This was a pleasant 3 night stopover in the St Ives area - I would recommend this site for a out of season visit to St Ives.

Just back from this site can only say that it is a very good site from being able to arrive the night before (12 midnight) to the bus back from st Ives, toilets spotless, reception staff very good, gardeners very good, bar staff very good. We arrived about 1. 00am 7th Aug head down till about 7. 00 am walked down to site 100 mtrs used toilets later got bacon cob/tea from take away checked in about 8. 00 am staff said some one will come up to early arrival field and let you know when your pitch is ready (web says pitch available from 12. 00 midday) at 10. 15 tap on van door nice guy says your pitch is ready on pitch and set up by 12. 00 our second week was on a different pitch spoke to gardener on morning of move and he went straight to new pitch mowed it and then came and told us it was ready cant fault staff or site. Bar good food good beer good entertainment ok can only say if you want a good facility site with good staff and good views across the bay this is it but one word of warning book early we booked in March and could only get 7 nights managed to get another 7 later on a different pitch, people book before they go home, our neighbour has been going for 17 years can only say try it.

This site is excellent. Toilet and showers very clean and showers always hot. There is a friendly pub on site with lovely meals at good prices. Our pitch was spotless and very spacious for our big tent. The staffs are extremely polite and chatty and are happy to help in anyway. The shop on site is well stocked with everyday items and food. Children enjoyed the play areas. Lovely walk down to St Ives and, excellent bus service if you don't want to walk back up the hill. Bus service ran until 10pm which is an excellent service. We loved the site and will be returning back with 12 of our friends this summer.

This is our 3rd visit to Polmanter, but first visit with a caravan, we've had a tent on previous visits.

This is a great family site, loads to do locally, St Ives is a short walk down the hill, but I'd make sure you get the bus back as walking back up that hill isn't much fun. The bus only costs £1. 50 so it's well worth it.

The site has a pool which is warm and clean, we enjoyed that. The clubhouse/bar is great, reasonably priced, good food, good service. As is the take away also on offer. There is shop, but apart from an occasional newspaper we didn't use it. (I arranged for Tesco online to deliver, met them at the gate!)

There is a pub/restaurant within 5 mins walk (although we drove as it was raining) called The Halsetown Inn, we were made very welcome there, even our dog, food was excellent. Highly recommended.

There are very few negative points about this site. As with lots of busy sites, the pitches are well used in August, so ours didn't have much grass on it when we arrived which was a shame, it was quite muddy when it rained. I mentioned this when we checked out and was told that our pitch had been used day in, day out from the last 2 1/2 months so it was to be expected. I was paying over £50 a night so was actually hoping for a bit of grass! I bought a £15 7 day token for the campsite wifi, once you were connected it was great, but it was really hassle to log on each time you went to use it as after a moments inactivity it kicked you out and you had to log back in again. It only worked on one devise as well, so each member of the family had to have their own token, on other campsites, if I logged out on my phone, my son could log in on his.

However, we will certainly be booking another week here. Keep up the good work!

This is an excellent caravan site with friendly staff, great setting and excellent amenities. There is a restaurant on site serving really good food, not just average burgers or pizzas but dishes that are different, excellent quality and delicious. The toilet facilities are modern, clean and comfortable. It is one of the best sites we have stayed on and why we return. Wifi is not free but then that is a small thing.

Have visited this site many times first in a trailer tent then caravan and now camping, the site is fantastic, great toilet/shower facilities always very clean, pitches a good size, food and drink available on site also has take away facilities and shop, good playground and swimming pool, a bus run from the site to and from StIves takes 5 minutes, you can also walk to StIves in about 30 minutes, couldn't ask for a better site and we have tried many.

Brilliant site.

Fabulous amenities with plenty of shower/toilet blocks.

Easy access and plenty of parking space between units.

Shop on site sells most things wanted on a day to day basis.

Swimming pool a good attraction even though did not use.

Easy booking in process and staff very friendly and obliging.

The bar and restaurant on site very good with excellent food and drink.

Only 20 mins walk into St. Ives and the parks own bus service which ran on a very frequent timetable.

This site is set in beautiful countryside with views to the sea and across the fields. The facilities are first class toilet blocks plenty of space in the showers always immaculate clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The site is within walking distance of StIves or there's a bus all be it up hill coming back but a beautiful walk of about 25 minuets but plenty to look at so doesn't seem that far. There is a swimming pool and lovely children's play area. Plus a restaurant and take away all in all very special site we definitely will return again next year

Nicely appointed site with an easy downhill walk into St Ives and if you don't fancy the walk back, a regular bus from the centre of town takes you back to the site entrance.

Lovely clean facilities, easy check-in and good value when using an ACSI card out of season.

The only negative for me was the bl**** seagull that pinched one of the pork chops cooking on the BBQ - Very clever though as I only turned my back for an instant to pick up some seasoning!
