We stayed two nights at this site, booking at short notice. The facilities were spotless and the 'disabled' washroom was a great boon since I have limited mobility. The water was very hot and I would suggest that it was a little too hot for young children to use unsupervised.
We had no children with us, but the small children's play area was well used by a happy crowd of young people who quietened down nicely at dusk!
The owner was friendly, very hands-on and well in control of the site without being obtrusive or authoritarian.
The site is almost level and pitching is easy.
Nearby St Agnes has a good range of shops, restaurants and pubs and a welcoming parish church. The area's cliff walks are spectacular and Porthtowan and Chapel Porth beaches are only a short drive away.
The city of Truro is within easy reach, as is most of West Cornwall. The only criticism is that the entrance would have benefited from being a little wider for caravan users, and a better visibility splay at the entrance would have made exiting the site onto a fast road much safer.
Highly recommended. Overall our stay was a very good experience and we hope to return soon.
If you want peace and quite then this is the place. Site is set surrounded by fantastic countryside on 3 sides and a seaview in the distance on the other. I have never seen such fantastic grass, the site was spotless and welcome was lovely.
We took two young children and we didn't want a place with a pool or entertainment as we more used the site as a based to visit the beaches in teh area (that are the best in the country). Both kids loved the play ares and plenty of space for their game of football.
Showers and toilets were clean.
I never thought I would say this about a campsite but the hot water was too hot, in the showers you had just one button and it was too hot for me and my youngest which was a pain. My only other suggestion to the owners would be to let the hot taps run in the washing up sinks for longer. Very hot water but you have to keep pressing the button every 2 seconds.
We cant wait to stay there again next year this was perfect for what we wanted. (Helped that we had 2 weeks of fantastic weather!)
We stayed here for a planned 1 night stop in St Agnes.
The site is absolutely immaculate. Very well tended and that extended to the facilities too. My OH and I were in agreement that the shower/toilet area was the best we had encountered in the UK so far. There were lovely touches too such as fresh flowers. The washing up area was spotless too with very hot water.
However, for us personally we found the site rather clinical. Yes having an open site is lovely but it just felt too barren and cold for our tastes.
Also the road was noisy at night and as although the walk to St Agnes is not far at all the road is absolutely treacherous particularly at night. If you choose this site for location for perhaps an after dinner pint please be warned that the road is busy and dangerous - there is not a path all the way.
For this reason we decided to move on after the one night as we like to have a village location to walk to safely.
We have been coming to this site for 6 years now, and I cannot fault it, even when it pours down with rain.
Pam the owner is very friendly and helpful. The site consists of two fields the first has mainly caravans and mobile homes with some tents, and the second has mainly tents.
The toilet/ shower block is always spotlessly clean, The site has two great playgrounds for the kids, as well as a laundry room, a dog walking field, and a small shop where you can get milk and eggs.
Every morning a small van from the local newsagent comes onto the site where you can buy things from newspapers to toothpaste.
The site does have electric hook up and if you find that your cable does not reach Pam the owner is always happy to lend you a longer one.
It is a quiet and lovely site for you if you just want to relax, and you will probably come home having made new friends, As a lot of us who stay here come back every year and will always stop and say hello to new faces.
The village of St Agnes is but a short walk away and St Agnes has 2 brilliant beaches just a few minuets drive away, the main beach of Trevaunance does have lifeguards, as well as an old ruined harbour, and some brilliant rock pools where the kids will find some excellent wildlife, Although you can take dogs onto the beach they must be on a lead.
The walks along the coastal paths are breathtakingly beautiful, with views of the Atlantic and the stunning engine houses which are dotted all along the paths. A trip into Truro is well worth the twenty minuet drive with it's stunning Cathedral and cobbled roads.
This site is excellent for everyone from people on their own or those with families. This is one if not the best site in the country to stay.
We only ended up on Presingoll because our favourite site was full; having said that, it was the only site that was
I have used Presingoll before and it is well situated for touring near St Agnes. It is just outside the town so the use of a car is necessary
The pitches are of very generous size. The shower blocks are clean and the laundry facilities are first rate - the dryers actually 'dry'
The lady running the site went out of her way to lend us an extension cable for the hook-up as our 25m cable was insufficient to get onto the power point.
There is a playground area but how long these things will hold a chlid's attention I wouldn't know.
There is milk and few other bits and pieces available but most people will shop in St Agnes or the surrounding area. There is also a communal Microwave available and that could be a handy thing for reheating a take-away meal.
This site is simply fantastic and it ticks all the boxes on my list of how a campsite should be.
Firstly the owner Pam is great, friendly and makes you feel so welcome during our stay. It was Royal Wedding weekend, and although I'd rather have sawn my own arm off than have anything to do with the whole occasion, Pam had organised a tea party for all guests which I thought was nice.
Facilities were very clean, practical rather than outstanding, but there was everything you needed including a microwave and two freezers. There were also numerous books, board games and bats and balls etc for you to borrow, just some more ways you were made to feel you were more than just a paying customer.
Pitches were large, level and well spaced out and most appeared to have hook up. The site is pretty big and I could see that it would never feel too overcrowded even in the height of summer.
St Agnes itself is a fabulous little places, its still very Cornish but feels as if its avoided being too affected by tourism. There are just a few very nice pubs and restaurants and a greengrocers, butchers and fishmongers so please don't do as we did and stock up at the nearest big super market, wait until you get there.
Apart from the fact that the wind was a bit strong and quite chilly on occasions, so take a wind break, I really can't praise Presingol enough.
