We have just returned from a great 10 day break at Tinney Farm. We booked late and were surprised they still had spaces left. I have 2 children that could not wait to get out of the car after our long journey when they saw the play park, which was well maintained. Having the heated pool on site is brilliant and we used it every day. The shower and toilet blocks are really nice, they are clean and the water is lovely and hot. The dish washing area is also clean and well maintained as well as the laundry room. The pub is a definite bonus, the prices are reasonable and the food is cooked to order and at £2. 50 a pint you can't go wrong. The staff are friendly and the waitress was lovely with the children.

The spacing between pitches is really good and the children had lots of room to play around the van. We will definitely be back. The site is central to Bude, Widemouth Bay, Boscastle and Titagel and not too far from Padstow as well.

We visited this lovely small park with two small children just before Easter in glorious sunshine. They have two camping fields, one is only open during the high season.

Having previously read some reviews about the state of the shower block we were a little nervous. However, the shower and toilet block have been completely refurbished over winter and were absolutely spotlessly clean with central heating which was most welcome in the cooler evenings.

We understand the on site bar has also been renovated over winter and was very good with simple games room and great food at good value.

A great site with friendly helpful staff, we hope to return later in the year.

Unfortunately this site has gone downhill from when we used it a year ago. We have been coming here for 4 years but have noticed the facilities have been looking a little more neglected each year.

The shower block, which has always been basic is now also not very clean. The shower tray, tiles and shower curtain were black with mould, you can even smell the mould when you go in.

The locks on half the showers and loos do not work. If you decide to brave the showers you will find that the temperature fluctuates between almost unbearably hot to stone cold, so really not suitable for children.

The owners who also run the farm, seem to have lost interest in the campsite, and you hardly ever see them about.

On the plus site it has fishing on site that my husband likes, and a wooden play structure (now also in need of repair) and a small outdoor swimming pool that my daughter likes.

Though the playground does tend to attract the older children in the evening who can be noisy, and also ball games are allowed on the camping field

We noticed also that even though it says your pitch will be available from 12 noon and you are to vacate by 10am, new campers were being allowed to drive to pitches as early as 9am, while people were still packing up

at £32 per night for a family on 4, with hook up in high season, you are paying top price for a site that is becoming rundown. We shall be looking elsewhere from now on.

After camping for over 10 years we have seen a few campsites and this ones rates in our favourites. We have just returned from a wonderful weekend camping at St Tinney's with our two children 5 & 2.

The campsite is an absolute gem. Lovely converted farm buildings make up reception and the St Tinney's arms. Food was reasonably priced £6.50 - £11.00 for a main meal which was good home cooked food along with a good children's menu. We decided to eat out both nights as it was so reasonably priced. The drink prices have not been bumped up just because your on a campsite. The outdoor pool was gorgeous we had it all to ourselves and the temperature was equivalent to a bath, perfect for our little ones who would normally get cold quickly.

You soon get to know the family owners who are all really friendly and take the time to check your enjoying yourself. Just be careful of Rattlers!

The showers/toilets are basic, however they looked as though they had just been re-painted so they looked and worked fine and were always clean when we used them.

There's lots of opportunity to fish - we don't but you can still take advantage of the land and walk the nature trail through the woods.

The pitches were perfect not too close and only around the outside of the field so children can play in the middle, just be careful of the playground with little ones, but if you are going to leave your younger children on there on their own you should expect an accident.

In conclusion if you are looking for a big site with modern shops, fast food outlets and terrible evening entertainment where you have to spend, spend, spend don't come here, if you are looking for a quiet tranquil place with the convenience of good home cooked food in the pub with wonderful walks and freedom for children to play this is the place to go. Lovely atmosphere and fantastic owners and staff.

Definitely going again, only next time for longer!

As stated by all other reviews. Good value and ideal for children. Play park on top field, swimming pool, good walks, shop, toilets clean, wash up area. Pub good but small so if its raining, then it will be packed.

Only downside is approach lanes which are narrow, could be a problem if you meet another caravan, but not if a car as they could back up!

Will go again.

Pity that caravan pitches are not open in winter.

We stayed at this site in September with good weather after the so called summer! Our pitch was large and flat with plenty of space for our 6 and 8 year old's to run around. The swimming pool is great, being very warm and clean which our kid's loved, as well as the pony rides and play area.
We found the on-site pub to be very welcoming and comfortable, very reasonable price with beer at £1.80 a pint, the food is excellent quality, value, so much so that we were able to eat there more time's than we had planned to.

The shower/ toilet block was quite adequate, spotless and the showers were nice and warm. All in all a good site with the owners / staff were friendly and approachable unlike some of the larger 'pack-em and rack-em' sites we have been to before. This site has load's of space, lots to do on-site and in the area and good value for money would recommend to anyone.
