Well. What can I say? Well done Mike for starters. What a beautiful place. Yes it's an hours walk into Looe, but if you're into walking you'll love it. It's only a five minute walk to beach rock cafe. Yes, the toilets are part of the stables and you can hear the horses while you're in there. That's part of its charm. That's camping. Best campsite for views definitely. My only complaint is a man who obviously camps there for work, parks his old Mercedes with the engine running while he uses the toilet at 5. 30 every the morning. No consideration for us holiday makers. Will I go again? Most definitely.

The site owner Mike is very friendly and welcoming. Site and facilities all clean and well kept despite Friday and Saturday being extremely busy. Very pet friendly. Beautiful view and we will definitely plan to return.

This campsite has the most fantastic views of Looe. Now that's the positives done. I been caravaning and camping for over 20 yrs and visited some brilliant sites, sadly this isn't one of them. Campsite is miles from anywhere you will need a car wherever you go. Toilet and washing facilities are a plastic coated horse shed, literally. Uneven site some pitches are really sloping. No shop.

We booked what we thought was a pitch on this site in January of this year and paid as requested, a deposit. We arrived at 2pm and told to just go and find 'somewhere to put it then move it tomorrow if you want' Alarm bells immediately rang. I informed the employee of our booking and stupidly asked ' are we too late? Have we lost our pitch? ' to which we were informed. ' the campers just arrive. I can't stop them '. My van is 26 foot long. I couldn't get the back legs down because of the slope on the field he directed me to. He advised me to find some blocks to put the front legs on. ' there are some scattered about. '

The next morning, there were still not anything like level pieces of ground available, and had to wait until two tents were moved to let me out before I left the site.

I cannot comment on the toilet/ shower facilities, because I didn't use them.

The only constructive criticism I can offer is they should begin to use some organisational skills, introduce a basic level of customer service and determine what a caravan site is.

This is one of the worst caravan sites (?) I have had the pleasure of, considering what they charge, only to leave and go to one of the best I've been on for 1 a night more. Sorry.

Stayed at Bay View Farm for 6 nights with my wife and our 3 year old son in our Outwell Montana 6P. We arrived on Sunday 7th September in the afternoon, found a flat pitch in the 2nd field with plenty of space to setup.

There were only about 5 of so tents in the field when we arrived so did not feel crowded which was nice. The main field near the facilities was mostly used by caravans and camper vans. Had a perfect view of the sea and of Looe in the distance.

The facilities on site were clean and well maintained and we never had to queue for the showers or washing up facilities (although this might be different in peak times when I can see the site been more busy).

The site is in the middle of nowhere and you do have to go down country lanes to get to the site. I did not see any pubs or shops within walking distance but Looe is only 4 miles away and has a few Co-Ops. We did our main shopping however in Liskerd which is about 10 miles away.

Just outside the campsite there is a path which takes you down to Millendreath which has a beech and a cafe, its only 10 minutes walk but the path is very steep but well worth the walk.

There were horses kept on site which our son liked to see and feed. I think some children might get bored as there is no play ground or anything and our son is of the age he likes to climb everything. This was not such a problem as we were out most days.

We departed a day early on Saturday 13th of September, due to potential rain (which did not happen!) By this time the site had got busier but again did not feel too crowded.

This is a lovely site and was reasonably priced. Probably best for people wanting views, peace and quiet near the sea. Due to the lack of a play ground I would not go back with my son until he was older or developed an interest going into the sea (which he currently does not). If however you do have children and you are going out most of the time, this won't be a problem.

I visited the site this year with my wife and 2 1/2 year old daughter. We stayed for 4 nights and didn't want to leave.

We picked a nice spot over looking the bay and the sunrise and sunset was totally worth the 4hr drive from London.

The toilets, showers was clean. Water was hot and free wifi was a great addition.

We took a stroll down to the beach which was about 15mins from the site.

Local fresh eggs was a treat, the scrambled eggs was delicious. Keep your eyes peeled when driving around.

I am planning on my trip next year already.
