Just returned from a lovely few days at this site. This time of year was perfect for a short stay with our family. Close enough to walk to the beach, a shop and pub nearby and the main bonus for us is the chance to have a fire to roast marshmallows before bed. (we used the sites chiminea but you can build your own pit). Beautiful views, quiet this time of year and some friendly animals that children enjoyed petting each morning. A lot of things were not ready so would not be fair to rate them but had they been done we would have given 10 out of 10! We will definitely be coming back as another bonus is the price-certainly one of the lowest in Cornwall for a family. (We had a large tent, awning, electric and family of five and the price is only 15 per night in April) The site has a lot of potential and the owner was updating the cow shed bar located on site which looks like it could be a lot of fun when finished. This is still a back to basics site which is something we prefer when choosing a place to stay. (AND the trampoline kept all three of our children occupied for hours-a brilliant idea!)

This is about the 6th/7th time I have camped at Namparra and still love it. Relaxed but each time I come the owners have made little changes to improve things. The facilities are basic, but that's all you really need in my opinion - I'd rather be left to camp away happily without being regulated. Most other campers also show respect for each other, some music, and chatting noises etc, but just low key and what camping is all about (and we no doubt added our own bit to it as well).

The bacon rolls served at the CowShed in the morning were freshly cooked and very welcome and very tasty!

The site is very dog friendly and a nice stroll down to nearby Kennack Sands which is dog friendly on the left hand side.

Great place

Just spent one of two weeks at Namparra. We, (two adults and two kids) arrived at 8 am after travelling through the night. There was a mix up with the hook up, which was quickly resolved. Our first impressions were positive, a duckpond, a sea view, and a somewhat quirky feel. There's a ramshackle barn/ bar with a pool table, dart board, and games which serves good local beer at reasonable prices, the atmosphere is laid- back/horizontal. Namparra was cited as being one of the best campsites in Cornwall, by the Daily Telegraph, which is interesting (not that we take the Telegraph). We have previously stayed in a dreadful campsite in Dorset which The Guardian considered to be amongst the top 10 in the UK.

From reading previous feedback, others have mentioned the toilets as being an issue. They are are probably the most used toilet in the South West. There is a constant queue and not much evidence of them being cleaned. The washing machine does not spin and therefore you're charged a 'knock down' rate of 3. 70. (You're charged 2 for the washing machine on NT sites, and they work. Consequently, you're left with soaking soap-filled laundry. While we were there, the owner made some improvements; he put down hard core on a area prone to mud/ flooding. Also soap dispensers were placed in the toilets.

The kids played on a trampoline. There was a wide age range of the kids, and unfortunately, one 12 year old girl was beyond parental control and had a mouth like a sewer. By the end of our stay we were glad to depart.

A basic field where you can space out and light a fire at night if you want; great.

It's a short drive or 25 minute walk through woods to a decent beach, and you're well placed to drive to and explore other beaches on the lizard.

Mostly lovely and quiet and dark at night; no traffic noise but there was some noise from people in a different campsite the other side of some trees.

The toilet/shower sheds are basic and functional. Unfortunately they did become very dirty; we arrived on a Tuesday when they were in a reasonable state but then they were not cleaned until Friday. It's not just a case to use the (totally inadequate) mops provided; the toilets themselves became pretty filthy with dried on urine and the like, there was mould and algae present. The sinks were really dirty. Take your own supply of loo roll as they run out, and this was not even at a busy time.

The best place to camp is around the edge of the field, but beware the smelly ditch which also runs around the edge!. Especially down from the toilets.

I would go here again as it has the plain field environment and the ability to have campfires that we really like. The price is very good too. But it would really really help if the toilet sheds were cleaned every day.

Just had a long weekend at Namparra and really enjoyed it.

If you want manicured lawn then this is not the place for you, if you want a pitch where you're not hassled, can light a fire or have some craic in the bar over a local ale then book now. We had a pitch with a hook up but there are plenty without. There are goats, pigs, hens, turkeys etc. For kiddie interest. We spent a great evening playing 3 dimensional connect four whilst having a drink in the Cowshed Bar, the local Serpentine ale was delicious! The owners try to make sure you to have a good time without being intrusive - it was great.

To all those below who moan about clean toilets it's easy: there are mops and buckets provided, leave it as you would hope to find it.

Quite a basic campsite but just what we were looking for. There aren't any specific pitches, you just turn up and pitch your tent where there is a space. The only exception being the electric hook up points which are along one site of the field. Part of the field is on quite a steep slope.

Toilets and showers are basic but do the job -located in wooden sheds at one end of the field.

There is a bar (former cow shed) on the farmstead at the entrance to the site. There is a pool table, dart board etc. Occasionally bands also perform.

Good location if you want to be close to the beach - just a short walk down the hill.

Poor phone reception (good for the adults but not for our teenage daughter!)

Would go again.
