We went here simply because we wanted to be close to St Ives town in order to be within a close walk of the restaurants. We normally stay on small sites and avoid large holiday parks like this because they often cater solely for the mobile homes which are sited there and the camping areas are in the worst parts of the site with poor facilities. However, this was a real surprise because after passing the rather unwelcoming looking approach and entrance and driving through the rows of mobile homes you arrive at the motorhome and caravan area which is superb. Set on terraces with magnificent views over the town, the beach and the sea, the pitches have hard standing with individual water, electricity and waste-water disposal points. The showers and toilets were immaculate and very modern with lots of hot water. It's just a few minutes' walk to the coast path and 10 minutes to the centre of the town. It is relatively expensive but worth the extra for the views, the closeness to the town and the quality of the facilities.

We stayed mid week when it was relatively quiet but still a nice buzz.

This location is second to none, we walked into town and back every day and loved every minute. It takes 10 minutes to walk to an amazing beach and St Ives town.

Toilet/shower block was fantastic, hot water with good pressure with the radio playing too.

The playground looked fantastic although we didn't have time to use it.

The views were breathtaking, which we took in from the picnic table every mealtime.

Everything was spotless

If I was going to find things to be negative about they would be: a female member of staff was not best on the customer service front and we couldn't get rid of our grey waste there. Would really benefit from a shop.

We will ABSOLUTELY return.

What a truly wonderful site. The views over the bay are gorgeous and the site is immaculate. The toilet and shower block are beautiful with under floor heating. The beach and town are just a short stroll away but it is a steep hill, so taxi back.

The pitch is hardstanding with hookup, water and drain and the even provided levelling chocks.

For such a wonderful site it seems odd that they have a laundrette yet no on site shop and that there is no hand dryer or hair dryer in the disabled toilet/shower.

All in it is definitely a 10 out of 10 and we are fussy.

Stayed 2 weeks jan to feb 2014. Nice view over st ives from camp site. We did think site would be better suited to motorhomes than caravans, to face the view you have to let the van down the slope on to the hard standing pitch using the handbrake so you do need a motormover to get on and off the pitch with ease. The toilet block was modern but did have an odour which did not go away. Customer service skills came across not well

Wow, the views from this site are stunning and we had amazing sunny cold weather, which was a bonus.

We had a hard standing pitch with its own waste & fresh water and picnic table, right near the facility block.

The facility block was nice and warm with underfloor heating and very modern, one of the best we have seen.

Only a couple of little points of pickiness! Nowhere to put shampoo etc in the showers and my husband said the pressure was very low when he had a shower, although fine in the ladies?

Lovely walks from site onto the coastal footpath and into St Ives.

Had a Chinese delivered direct to the motorhome on the Saturday night, very nice it was too!

Worth the slightly higher than average price for the showers and the spectacular views! The site was busy but quiet as it was out of term time.

The allocated pitch was hard standing with water, drainage etc available. I was pleasantly surprised to find both a picnic table and wooden ramps available on the pitch. As the pitch was on a slope having the ramps was a necessity and these are great if you have forgotten your own.

The shower block is state of the art and outside the main areas there are small private shower/toilet rooms and even a wet suit shower area at the rear of the block. I could have happily spent a couple of hours under the power shower and they have even avoided the 'pre set' temperature that many sites use.

The whole site was beautifully clean and well laid out with views over St Ives from most pitches. Even this late in the season the Rugby Club still run their bus to/from town for 1 per person per trip. This stops outside the site and outside the Tate Gallery so is perfect unless you fancy an extremely steep climb back up the local roads to the site.
