Very picturesque site, great views of the countryside and rolling hills.

Site has one large open camping field on one side, and the other side is dotted with fruit trees and hydrangea bushes. The site is sloping in places, but not too bad and some pitches are more level than others, just need to have a look around. Owners will have selected a pitch for you on booking, but they generally will let you choose somewhere else if its available.

Owners very friendly. Keen to keep it a quiet site with limited units, which helps keep it special. Actually, numbers are limited as only 3 loos and two showers. There is a bathroom but not open 24 hours and you have to pay extra to use £2, because of cost of filling the bath.

Definitely recommend

This is such a wonderful and peaceful site. The views of the hills and farm animals are amazing, and at night you get bats and a stargazers sky.

As a previous reviewer said this is not for those who want a site with bells on.

The location is perfect for exploring the surrounding area, eg The Eden Project.

The showers and toilets were spotless.

The only negative comment is that the grass had just been cut and it was not raked up so we kept getting grass cuttings in the tent. As we say this is only a small problem to such a great site.

A lovely quiet site which is as described on the website and just what we wanted for a relaxing few days. Spotlessly clean everywhere and very thoughtfully laid out.

The owner did his very best to fit us in and even found another pitch for us when we found that our vehicle was too high to get into the designated pitch.

We found none of the problems which other visitors have found with the site not being level.

All in all a very quiet site which we will definitely visit again. Yes, if one wanted to be super critical, there could be more loos but it really didn't spoil our break.

If you like playgrounds, a shop and the facilities that go with big sites this isn't a site for you. We chose Polglaze because we tend to prefer the smaller, quieter type of site and boy did this meet the bill.

The site is set in a beautiful field with hydrangeas scattered about and the farmhouse at the bottom of the driveway. Attached to this farmhouse are two shower washrooms and a family bathroom. These are the only wash facilities on site.

This does mean an occasional wait for one to become free when the site is busy, but the wait is well worth it. You get plenty of hot water for the shower, a wash basin and a toilet in a clean tiled room with under floor heating! How many camp sites can you say that about?

The site is very close to the lovely village of Fowey, you can walk it, although there are very few footpaths next to the roads and it can be quite steep depending on which route you take. It is well located for the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan plus many other attractions. There is a small shop at a nearby garage, but there is a Tesco and Asda in St Austell not too far away.

This site is great for couples and young families, beautifully kept. Just don't tell lots of people!

Had a great week here this August, first trip to this part of Cornwall. This is a great campsite if you want a bit of peace and quiet. Alan, the owner, does not encourage lively parties of people and asks that noise if kept to a respectful minimum. And it works a treat. No boozy all nighters keeing you awake (this makes me sound ancient.This was me once, honest!). The facilities are fine, well appointed showers (hot water) and even a bath you can rent out in the evenings. The only issues are that there is only two of them, so queueing in the mornings is common especially on hotter days. The site itself is on a bit of a slope, depending on the pitch you get, it can lead to sliding about a bit. But for us the calm atmosphere made up for it.

Fowey is lovely. If you want to eat out and have a beer, try the Safe Harbour pub on the way into the town. Great food (excellent mussles, lovely peoepl and cheaper than the town centre. You can walk in about 20 mins, but take a torch. There's loads of great walks, and if the sun shines it's worth clambering down to the Lantic Beaches (via the Hall Walk). Really don't bother visiting St. Austall though. It's has nothing to recommend it and should be bulldozed immediately. Head east and north instead.

Our family of 4 have just spent a week at Polglaze campsite and we were very pleased with our choice. It is a quiet friendly campsite, no clubs, or play areas, which is just what we were looking for. The owner was very helpful and informative about the local attractions etc.

The toilets and showers are of a high standard and were always kept clean, which is a credit to the site. My only comment would be that as the toilets and showers are together in their own individual rooms, (apart from one) first thing in a morning, toilets were quite busy as people were showering whilst others were queuing for that early morning visit to the loo!

However, this would not deter me from visiting the site again or recommending it to family and friends. It is very conveniently placed to visit many places, beaches and attractions in the area and with local shops, takeaways and launderette facilities in the town just down the road was just perfect for us.

Thank you very much.
