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.

The location of this site is exceptional in respect of the wonderful views over Looe Bay.

We were able to choose where we wanted to pitch the caravan which is a real bonus and not restricted to parking up in bays. No problem as the site was quiet but I would imagine could cause problems in high season.

I would not return to this site for a number of reasons:

The toilets and shower block were not kept clean at all. The blocks themselves are an old barn and there were cob webs and spiders, bird droppings etc.

I didn't see them being cleaned in the whole week we were there.

The access to the site is hazardous if towing a caravan. The lane is narrow and several passing places but would be impossible of you met another caravan. Why doesn't the owner insist that arrivals only after 12 md and departures before this time. We to up very early to leave to try to avoid meeting another caravan.

There are no facilities for children which is not an issue for us but could be an issue for families.

Walking is restricted unless you are very fit. The walk down to the nearest beach is very steep and it takes a good hour into Looe. The lanes to and from the site made walking elsewhere unsafe.

There are no shops or pubs in walking distance and no buses. If we had brought our motor home we would have been stranded or forced to use for getting about.

This site is in a pretty location and the view is amazing which has been said plenty of times before. We have visited twice. The first time we had booked, but the second time we had booked elsewhere, but drove straight out when we realised the site was in the middle of an industrial estate and not at all as picturesque has the website made out. Anyway back to bay view, for a tent, the site is quite hilly, we had a pitch right at the front with uninterrupted glorious views, but the downside of this if the weather turns in (which it did) you really do know about it! You are on the end of a cliff! lol.

The main issue with the site, well I have two, the first one being the owner as nice as he is, does allow the site to get ridiculously overcrowded. What was an idyllic spot was soon overrun with tents and caravans in all direction, close enough to hear the quietest chat.

My other issue is the showering area, and toilets. The smell of stick on toilet cleaner was so overpowering in the loos it made me gagg everytime I went into them. And the ceiling is open to the barn and the amount of huge cobwebs was quite alarming. Not pleasant to be having a shower and look up to see loads of hanging cobwebs. Eeek! Wish they would have panelled the ceiling and make the showers more enclosed.

We did enjoy our stay but wouldn't return as we have found other places since.

This site has great views of the bay. Mike was very pleasant, the toilet blocks could do with a few more checks during the day. Would be good if they where able to supply basic needs, Bread, milk, eggs etc. We have since returned to this site, and where still greeted as if it was our first time. The shortish walk to the town or close by village is not suitable for people with walking problems. Overall the site was clean and tidy, we will certainly be returning.

We visited Bay View and can echo all the positive comments on here. We must praise the staff particularly - all pleasant and helpful and they keep the facilities immaculately clean and tidy.

The bar/restaurant has an attentive waiter and we had an enjoyable meal there. We shall certainly return especially as it's only takes 1. 5 hours drive up the motorway from Stockport area. Good base for visits to Lancaster, Morecambe, Arnside, Silverdale and Carnforth.
