To get straight to the point there is nothing wrong with this site and we were very happy with our stay and particularly for the price we paid. As with most sites its a matter of taste and preference as to whether they are for you.

Access- site was easy to find but is a short way down a single track road with passing places.

Location - about a mile and a half from Looe - walk able apparantly! - but nothing next to the site.

Check in - very efficient and speedy but we were the only arrival. Reception area and staff very smart and welcoming.

Pitching - no assistance offered. Were given an informative brochure with a map and verbal directions to pre-allocated pitch.

The pitches - Mainly grass but a few hard standing. There is a very slight slope to the site but pretty level. Drainage not an issue and we had some good rain. Pitches are wide but not deep and I felt a bit hemmed in. Electric hook up on a tower with 4 marked plugs.

Showers / Toilets - 2 new blocks sited close to all pitches. More than enough toilets and showers and no queueing even on bank holiday week. Underfloor heating kept floors nice and dry. All cubicles very spacious. 3 family rooms and a disabled facility in each block. Push button showers a bit dribbly. No private basins and I agree with previous reviewer that need hooks or a shelf by the basins for your towel.

Pool- small but pleasant and lifeguard present. Says balls not allowed but people had balls and body boards.

Shop - long opening hours, managed to get what I needed and prices ok.

Laundry - didn't use machines but charge is £3 change is avaiable at reception.

Castaways bar/takeaway. Bit dark and dingy inside during the day. Didn't experience the entertainment but had a cooked breakfast one day which was a good plateful and very reasonably priced. Free wifi in here too.

So in general no horrors. Shame about the dribbly showers and the push button drinking water taps. The laundry floor needed a good sweep - went in there to use the tap as fed up with push button ones - and looked like an explosion in a loom band factory. Didn't like the mix of tents and caravans on the touring pitches. There is not enough room between pitches and I felt my space was being invaded and I was invading space when walking to showers. I didn't feel comfy sitting outside as people were so close. The showers and toilets were acceptably clean but you are always up against people who never clean up after themselves, don't flush and allow their kids to run wild. No rowdiness really and bar turns out fairly early.

We stayed on site for 1 week, sadly we arrived and left on the back of a recovery vehicle and had no car for the full week.

The site is perfectly located for Polperro and Looe if you don't mind a good walk across the cliffs which was brilliant. Facilities were all good and reasonably priced including the shop and bar and all staff were helpful and pleasant.

The local buses and taxi's were very reasonable should you not want the walk.

Would we stay again? YES most definitely.

We have just returned from a fantastic time at Trencreek and can't wait it book for next year

The site is located in a perfect spot for Newquay town, it is beautifully presented and the staff (Paul) are very friendly. Facilities are sufficient - laundrette, showers/toilets ( all clean), shop ( well stocked and reasonably priced) bar, pool and play area.

Excellent price for a perfect holiday.

Reviewer: Kenmof 9 reviews from this member

Spent 4 nights here with kids, good location and service upon arrival was welcoming, lots of narrow roads around so take care if towing, access to park was okay, the access road is only a caravan width for about 5-600yds with all of it having overgrown bushes - hedges - weeds etc along the length of it, very difficult when people walking on road and you are driving towards them as no where really to go, lots of seasonal tourers parked up with overgrown grass surrounding a lot of them, had hardstanding pitch with services which was good.

Shop was small, but well priced and had all basic requirements and essentials.

Toilet block was modern and cleaned regular, could do with clothes hooks beside sinks for when getting washed though!

Entertainment was poor quality but they were doing there best to get people involved, food in bar was good and prices reasonable, site has free wifi but only within entertainment complex which worked well.

Swimming pool was okay but beware, they are showing pictures on website and advertising's of people in pool appearing to have a good time etc with beach ball, in reality though you are not allowed balls in pool and are not allowed splashing?? not sure what their views of a pool and a good time are, kids were disappointed obviously especially as pool wasn't even busy.

Iím really not a fan of holiday parks, they tend to be far too big, regimented lines of caravans and holiday homes and of course there is all the entertainment in the bar etc, etc, and while Iíd not normally choose to stay here, it was more necessity as we were walking the coast path, it wasnít too bad.

We camped in the touring pitched at the bottom of the site that were fortunately a long way from the statics and bar etc, a little bit of a walk to the toilet block, but it was out of the main season so was quiet and there was a fantastic view out to sea, so it really didnít feel too much like a large holiday park.

The toilet facilities were perfectly adequate, plenty of them and kept largely clean, there were just a few points when they were a bit dirty. Well stocked shop with friendly staff, unfortunately the staff in reception were nowhere near as friendly.

I did poke my head in the bar as it was the start of the world cup, but choice of beers were more Wetherspoons than country pub and the swimming pool was a fine size for the amount of people in it when I used it, but god knows what itíd be like in the middle of August with a packed site.

The site is within walking distance of Looe if you are used to walking, if not then it would need to be a taxi, but care needs to be taken on which firm you choose as the prices varied widely. By the time we reached Looe we had nearly walked all the way around Cornwall, and Looe is OK, has some nice aspects to it but failed to really love it like many other parts of Cornwall. As far as the coast path is concerned, the section between Polruan and Looe is probably the best section since North Cornwall, tough, but rugged and attractive.

Large site, clean toilet and shower blocks and easily accessible. Could maybe do with a few more lights near the bottom field. Lovely pool and bar. Kids loved the activities in the evening, perhaps a few more younger kids games would be good in the games room, otherwise great site and good value for money.
