Just returned from a fantastic visit to this immaculate site, the sea views from the camping fields are brilliant. The site is family run by Trudie, Kevin and there son Barry they are so welcoming and helpful.

We stayed on one of the 6 perfectly level hard standing pitches, don't worry if you haven't got a motor mover as Barry and Kevin are always on hand to help push your van into position.

This was our second visit to the site and we were not disappointed, the site shop is well stocked with not only lots of lovely goodies but also all the essentials you need. I had to make a purchase of mozi repellent and after bite and it was a fraction of the cost I would of paid had I purchased them from a chemist. There is a van that comes round every other day selling fresh bread, cakes, scones and fruit & veg.

We stayed here for 10 days and only used our car once, we used the local ferry to visit Fowey & Mevagissey we even hired a boat for a couple of days to visit some of the coves that can only be reached from the sea. We were spoilt for walks and views the local pubs served amazing locally caught & grown food.

How this place has not won loo of the year I really don't know. The only disappointment is that it's not open all year round, we would love to visit in the winter.

A beautiful, quiet and peaceful site in a great location at the top of Polruan, with some sea views and just steps from the SW coastal path. When we were there at the start of June were one of only half a dozen units and a couple of tents, but the generous spacing of the pitches is such that even when busy I imagine there's a feeling of space and privacy. The site is immaculately kept and cared for, but retains a natural feel with plenty of trees, wild flowers, bird nesting boxes etc. The showers, toilets and dishwashing facilities are absolutely spotless, probably the cleanest we've encountered on a campsite, and the reception, washing machines, shop and information point are all comprehensively equipped and thoughtfully presented. The quayside at Polruan is a 15 minute walk from the campsite (though a very steep hill to climb back up!) and from here you can catch the little ferry across to Fowey, which runs in the summer until 9. 30pm I think (do check), so you can have dinner in Fowey and get the boat back as the sun goes down. There are a couple of pubs and a tea shop in Polruan itself we only tried the Lugger Inn, which was fine. This campsite is a credit to the family that own and run it a gem of a site. Hope we can return.

4 nights here, touring Devon/Cornwall

Smashing site, beautiful location.

Not the most level grass pitches, but ok (sea views)

6? Gravel/hard standings at top of site (no sea views) but still pretty.

Very clean and tidy everywhere, lots of bird boxes/ feeders about, lovely.

Reception with well stocked shop, and one of the best information rooms I have seen, including books to borrow/ exchange.

Wardens/owners friendly/ helpful.

Ten mins walk into Polruan, longer on the way back (steep hill!)

Excellent pub The Lugger in Polruan, for beers food. Worth booking as always busy.

Great walking from the site. We walked (coast) into Polperro, ate in the three Pilchards (fish pie) very good. Local little bus back 1. 80, amazing value.

Fowey Hall walk, fantastic views, also walked from Fowey to Polmear, Polkerris for lunch (Rashligh Inn) excellent food. Bus back from here too, to Fowey, then the ferry back to Polruan

Really enjoyed our stay here, will definitely return, when next in the area.

Free wifi a bonus.

We have just returned from eight days on this brilliant site. It is the second time we have stayed there and it was still as perfect as I remembered. The roads leading to it can be 'interesting' to say the least! but to be honest the site itself fully compensates any fears of the driving kind! Kevin, Trudy and their Son keep the whole place immaculate and are always friendly and helpful (yes there are rules but if you want a quiet and relaxing holiday then rules are what you need)and they are careful not to over crowd the place, the views out to sea are stunning. My only problem with the place is having to leave it.

Thank you for providing such a lovely holiday destination.

My daughter and I stayed at Polruan Holidays Camping & Caravanning Site for 7 nights and enjoyed our stay so much.

It is a family run site by people who care about you having a great stay. They are constantly keeping the site and facilities clean and tidy, but not so much that you feel they are always around you.

They also don't try and squeeze in as many people as possible like some other sites.

They are able to have 41 pitches but choose to accommodate 26 so that you have space and some privacy during your stay.

The views are great from the campsite and you are only 5 minutes walk to Polruan (10 minutes back, its a steep hill). Polruan is a very good location to get to Fowey and beyond, they have a ferry every 15 minutes.

The camp shop has all that you could possibly need and more.

Its not often that we say this, but we are definitely going back next year.

If you want peace and tranquillity on a quiet, friendly, spotless site ~ this is the one!

Fantastic in every respect, has just knocked our previous favourite site off it's top spot - say no more.

Yes the lanes are rather narrow, but do-able when towing; yes the walk to the village is steep, hard work back up, but do-able and all well worth the effort for this stunning location. The ferry services are excellent (we used both) and run every 15 minutes until 11pm. Fowey is lovely - if you walk to the left when you get off the ferry you will find the most beautiful small beach ever! Dawn French lives around here and I can see why.

We will definitely be returning to this little gem, a credit to its owners and management team, other sites should take note, the only 5* site we have been to that is well worthy - in my eyes!
