Just back from a week on this site. Excellent facilities, very clean and tidy. Had a lovely pitch on the top overlooking the sea. The walk through the lane down to St Ives is very pretty. Visited Godrevy and walked the headland where there are seals living and breeding. Stunning views, well worth a visit. (National Trust).

Only downside of campsite was that the restaurant and shop were both closed from third week in September. As no village shop it would have been helpful to have shop open. Not had this before on any site.

Our fourth visit and love it. Very well managed in all areas. Clean modern toilet and shower facilities more than enough for the busiest times of the year. Great pitches with good views. A lovely country lane walk into St Ives around 1. 5miles down hill and there is a bus available at £1. 50 to come back but the hill is not too steep if you take it slow.

Must comment on the Stable Bar and restaurant. Top quality for ambience staff and the food. The portions are huge and the prices are not too expensive. All 4 of us enjoyed our different meal choices.

Spent two weeks at this site on a hard standing full service pitch. Excellent sea view from pitch. Site was very well maintained. Used 2 of the shower/toilet blocks and very clean, showers hot. They had family rooms too. High standard and no issues. Useful on site shop selling the usual foodstuffs, plus few things for kids and camping essentials. Good

Laundry room. Swimming pool was clean and warm and a good size. Tennis courts were great, but it would have been nice if they were bookable without the £3 fee. Lovely bar and restaurant on site. There was some entertainment, bingo, live music, karaoke and pitched to suit the site (not rowdy etc). Food was excellent. Games room for kids, but ours didn't really use it. There was a large playing field with goals for kids to play which our kids used a lot. Excellent large enclosed dog exercise field. Also an early arrivals field that had plenty of waiting visitors on weekend mornings. The site pitch fee is expensive, but it is very popular and overall with the standard of the site, its facilities and its proximity to st Ives we thought it was worth it for our main holiday and we plan to return. Departure time of 10am is quite early - not great if you have a large tent. All staff were friendly and helpful, in particular I found the staff in reception very helpful. The approach lane, though short is not a wide road. Arriving on the afternoon of the village fete was a nightmare, with lots of traffic and parked cars - had only inches to spare either side if van (it would have been better if we had known about this or the road had no parking cones so access was not so restricted). Wonderful walk down into St Ives (which is a lovely town) - we did it lots of times and caught the bus back. Only downside was that There are limited dog friendly beaches in the area, unlike Newquay. The best beaches in st Ives do not allow dogs. The ones that do are small and are completely covered at high tide. They have no facilities on them - it's a shame that the council can't allow one the best beaches to have dogs on, even if restricted to being on leads. You can go to Mexican towans which has better surf but it's a trek down a narrow cliff top path from the car park to it - it did feel like a very anti-dog local authority!

Enjoyed a 7 day break at this very well laid out site ( last week in June). It is clean and tidy at all times and has first class facilities

An ideal base for the surrounding country side from newquay to lands end, and a 30 min walk to St Ives with a regular bus service throughout the day if you so choose

Will definitely return

Have just returned from this excellent campsite. We were on pitch 259 which was a corner plot. Great sized pitches and very close to the toilet and shower blocks. Lovely view from the pitch towards St Ives and the sea. Very helpful staff. We shall be returning next year hopefully on to the same pitch.

We have just returned from 4 days and thought the site was brilliant. We were camping in Morvah with a sea view and privacy hedges either side. The pitch was a very good size. Walking around the site all the pitches are spaced out very well so you don't get that cramped in feeling.

The facilities were clean with plenty of hot water and enough spacious shower cubicles and toilets and family shower rooms. The dishwashing area was clean and tidy with a decent supply of hot water and plugs provided.

The Stable bar was just lovely, with dogs being allowed in the conservatory, where there were some very comfy sofa's! For those with children (and those without. We all go into our inner child at some point :)!) the play area had a good variety of swings, slides and climbing frames for all ages!(The pool wasn't in use as it was only April!)

The dog walking area was a good size, but on the down side of St Ives, there doesn't seem to be that many dog friendly beaches.

Having said that we weren't there is in the height of season and there were only a handful of people on the site.

The only down side to the site (that we could see) was that you had to be off your pitch by 10am, which doesn't give you a lot of time to pack up a large tent and all the gubbings, also the tent would still be damp with the dew this time of year (and the rain during the night).

All in all a very pleasant stay and we would recommend this site to others and hopefully return.
