We have just returned from a month long tour of Dorset Devon and Cornwall. I have to leave a review of this site as it was definitely the stand out one of our journey. The welcome and care and general friendliness of the owners Kate and Phil added hugely to our enjoyment of the holiday. We were luckily booked on to a hard standing which was a very large area. The facilities were spotlessly clean and in an enclosed block so nice and warm. We found Truro well worth a visit and if you like really good food give Hooked a try - fabulous! Can't recommend this site highly enough.

We like sites that are not too big and offer peace, quiet and tranquillity. Summer Valley fitted the bill perfectly. The shop stocks all the essentials you may need and at reasonable prices, unlike some site shops. Facilities are kept spotlessly clean and the site is kept neat and tidy, although owners Phil and Kate clearly consider it a work in progress as they are always looking to make improvements. For anyone wanting a picturesque hideaway to chill out this site is highly recommended. We will be back.

We were looking for a break which included a city visit as we had theatre tickets for Truro and also access to the beaches. We were not disappointed! This site is immaculately clean and the grounds are extremely well kept. The POD was perfect, a stunning view - we didn't pull the long door blind so we could wake up to the amazing view! It was toasty warm; even though we were offered a heater we didn't need it. Kate and Phil were great, we took the bus into Truro and used the car to visit Perranporth, St Ives and Newquay. The lounge 'hub' room had all the information we needed, the wifi didn't reach the POD which was perfect - we needed to have some 'downtime', however, it was super fast in the hub room and we enjoyed chatting to other campers and even had a game of cards. I thoroughly recommend this site; the local pub was great too!

We were delighted to find this site, if you are looking for a relaxing break this is the place to be! What a gem! It is hidden in a valley close to Truro but in a very quiet and tranquil spot. The amenities are extremely clean and the current owners, Kate and Phil made us feel very welcome. They have undertaken recent improvements at the park which have enhanced the site, the shop was a particular bonus. We also enjoyed the 'hub room' with leather sofas and books to read. The tourist information that Kate gave us was great; she knew local bus routes and places to eat/visit with our dog. We took the opportunity to explore the local area both on foot, by bus and car. The bus into Truro was easy - we caught it at a request stop at the end of the Summer Valley Lane. The city is lovely, compact to explore with lots of large department stores and small independent shops. We visited Perranporth, the closest beach which took us about 10 minutes to drive to. The weather was fantastic and we walked the coastal path before having pasties for lunch! We also visited St Ives, The Minnack Theatre, Landsend, Newquay, Padstow, Hayle and Carbis Bay - all easy driving distance, the furthest was only 50 minutes away. Summer Valley offers a perfect location for exploring whilst in a quiet spot. Waking to the sound of bird song and watching the wildlife was an added bonus. We booked for one night and stayed 4! We will be returning here again soon!

Superb little site!

Just been to this hidden little gem in the heart of Cornwall.

You wouldn't want to take a huge rig here! But this site owned by Phil and Kate is a great find. Set in rural Cornwall its scenic with picture postcard views of fields set with drystone walls, it's close to the A38 but you wouldn't know! It was so quiet. Truro is a stones throw away good little pub close by and the rest of Cornwall is a drive away - Padstow was a 15 minute drive along some of the most scenic drives I've been this side of Scotland!

Site is surrounded by trees, a little babbling brook at the bottom of the site and woods to walk in definite sun trap being in the valley hardly felt a breath of wind.

The toilets, cleaning facilities, and laundry area was immaculate and it looks like things are being upgraded as they go.

Plenty of electric hook ups (10 and 16 amp) for us caravanners. I'd say about 50 pitches - but didn't go counting.

I'd highly recommend this site, it's a little hidden gem! We went as a family unit with a 7 year old looking for Cornish activities!

Oh, they have a great little shop serving coffees teas and hot chocolate and plenty of essentials like the washing up liquid we forgot to pack - and not at the usual ridiculous prices you can get! Free wifi in the little chill out room!

Wow, what a gem this campsite is! So reasonable too.

Andrew gave us a warm welcome and the choice of various pitches but had remembered we didn't want to be to close to the road which we appreciated.

The grass was cut short and the cuttings picked up so none trampled into your unit.

The toilet and shower block were warm and immaculate the whole of our 15 night stay. This block also included sinks for washing pots and some for clothes. The laundry facilities were clean and modern. There is an information room with a few comfy chairs where you could sit and read the leaflets.

To the rear of the campsite was a field that was ideal for dog walking.

It was so quiet and peaceful 'home from home'.

We have already booked for next year!
