Stayed at Heligan Woods as part of a holiday in a rented Motorhome. What a lovely site. Beautifully maintained with lots of clean facilities.

I loved the ease at which we could book a pitch and choose interactively on the internet exactly which pitch we’d like. We had a large grass pitch (number 39) and it was huge with a lovely view down the valley to the sea. The site was well laid out and didn’t seem crowded even though it was pretty much full for the time we were there. Plenty of showers available and a nice covered washing up facility.

The site is right next door to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and you can walk through a gate at the back of the site to get to it.

The site was perfect for us as once parked up we could walk everywhere. The walk down in to Mevagissy is great as it’s an enclosed path meaning we could walk down with our dog off the lead without the worry of her darting in to the fields of livestock. The walk to Mevagissy takes approximately 45 minutes though uphill on the way back so possibly slightly longer! Mevagissy is lovely with lots of shops, pubs and restaurants being dog friendly.

We also did a walk from the site to Pentewan then along the coastal path to Mevagissy and back. The walk from the site to Pentewan took about an hour and was a lovely walk down through the woods and then along the river in to Pentewan itself. After a cream tea at The Cove Café and a drink at The Ship we walked along the Coastal Path to Mevagissy. You cannot go on to the Beach with Dogs at Pentewan however it’s easy to access the Coastal Path…just walk up the road out of Pentewan as if you were heading towards Mevagissy and the Coastal path is accessible right at the entrance of Pentewan Sands Holiday Park. We did this walk on a beautiful dry and sunny day – it’s probably not one I’d do after or during rain as the path is very steep and uneven in places. It took us about an hour to walk from Pentewan to Mevagissy although we did have numerous stops to take pictures as the views were stunning.

We will definitely return to this site as it ticked every box for us.

Lovely relaxing site, with the Lost Gardens literally on the doorstep. As others have said, you can use the tea shop and farm shop there without having to pay entry to the gardens.

Wardens couldn't be more helpful - we were originally booked onto a grassy pitch which, when we actually turned up, was a bit too sloping for our motorhome to drive in and off easily. The Wardens kindly moved us to a more suitable, more level, pitch with the added bonus of a distant sea view. Bear in mind when booking that there are a few very sloping pitches. Facilities were as you would expect, with plenty of hot water for showers and dish washing. I never had to wait for a shower but on the morning of our departure my husband did - to be fair it was the start of the main holiday season and he didn't wait for long.

Mevagissey is a pleasant 40 minute stroll along a good pathway (might be a bit muddy in places in bad weather) but a steep walk back. We used Dave's taxi, £6. 40 for the ride back. Plenty of friendly pubs to choose from - we ate in the Fountain, small pub with a small menu but huge portion sizes. And very tasty too!

Stayed on a non-electric pitch, all had great uninterrupted view. Plenty of space for large tents albeit on a slight slope but you get used to it, nothing to worry about. Rooks are great to watch and you soon get used to them squawking at silly hours of the morning. Very peaceful campsite (without kids that is) and great staff. Very clean, more than adequate for camping. The few kids that were there seemed very happy playing and cycling around exploring.

Just watch out for the speed cameras around St. Austell.

Eden half hour away. Good location for visiting Cornwall.

Camp wifi kept dropping in and out but I had good O2 3G signal. Virgin Media not so good.

More than happy to stay there again.

Really nice campsite very close to the lost gardens. Facilities were excellent. Only stayed here to visit the gardens so did not see much of the local area. Wardens were very friendly but on our day of departure we were a little behind time and late leaving by half an hour (our mistake) but they allowed the next occupants to pull up into the next pitch an hour before arrival time, and pressure us into leaving quickly despite the fact that they could see we were preparing to go and lots of vacant pitches seemed to be available. It was the last day of our holiday and we could have done without the hassle of some woman parading around and watching us pack up. The rules for departure seem to be less flexible than the rules for arriving.

Stayed at Heligan Woods for two nights in July 2015. This really is a great camp site. Plenty of space, great scenery

And very helpful staff. The showers and toilets are spotless.

Mevagissey is only a short drive away or 40 min walk on a Public Footpath. Heligan Gardens are right next door. There is an excellent restaurant at the gardens that you can use without having to pay entry to get into the main gardens.

We use this site every June because it's ideally located for visiting anywhere in Cornwall for days out. The location is quiet with scenic views of the local countryside, and the facilities include a clean and well maintained toilet & shower block centrally located in the park. The reception by staff is warm and friendly and the reception also incorporates a handy shop facility for those moments when you've forgotten something!

The site is situated a short ten minute drive from St Austell, and has a sister site a few minutes away on the seafront which boasts a restaurant, pool, water sports and full family entertainment facilities.

The Heligan Woods site is highly recommended for peace and quiet, without the bustle of a fully blown family site, yet amenities are available a short distance away for those who wish to use them.

The picturesque fishing port of Mevagissey is located just a few minutes drive away with excellent pub restaurants and quaint little streets and shops to browse, or just sit by the harbour and enjoy a traditional freshly baked Cornish pasty.

Would we visit again? Most definitely!
