A breath of fresh air. Lovely to come across a campsite with a difference and such a relaxed feel.
Hadn't booked and was found an appropriate place to pitch up and shown around the site on arrival. I pitched in a small walled compound that was beautifully private and sheltered.
The facilities are not ultra modern but very clean (staff seemed to be constantly cleaning the place up). Showers - plenty of hot water (10p per minute). Recycling is comprehensive. Love how facilities are almost hidden into the landscape.
There are a few communal benches and there seems to be a natural encouragement to use them, which was good given the private pitch.
The animals were an added extra interest.
The rules are inconspicuous eg: 'don't chase the chickens as their legs are shorter than yours' which is refreshing.
The location is good being just 5 minutes stroll to the village and its pubs and cafes etc. Might want to avoid the Top House as the landlord is a bit miserable.
If you like sterilised campsites with a set sized pitch and rules galore this isn't for you - you'll moan about the grass and the toilets will be too old. But if you want to chill out in great surroundings then roll up!
Amazing, love this site. The pitches are more than adequate, ours was overlooking the sea about half way down and was surrounded by 3 living walls with amazing flowers and shrubs. Perfectly adequate loos and showers and washing up area.
Loved the whole quirkiness of the surrounds, with the amazing paintings, murals, sculptures and carvings.
The shop was well stocked. You can hire braziers, (some made from recycled washing machine drums), and logs, I needed some for my log burning cooker.
Chickens, chicks and ducks roam freely, a chicken we called Noodle came every night, he liked noodles!
All the staff were very helpful.
Ron never throws anything away, ever!
There are Alpacas, horses and pigs in the adjacent fields.
Although the site is in the middle of the Lizard, it has a farm feeling, and because of its position we were minutes from everything.
The Witches Ball pub is very good, we had a lovely carvery there Sunday.
Easy access to walks along the cliffs.
We have been camping for 9 years, and usually camp 3 or 4 times a year, so far, (and we're not looking much further!)this is the best site we have been to. Will return!
Wow, what a lovely quirky site, right in the heart of Lizard village with its pubs, shops and cafes; and only a 15 minute walk out to the coast and Lizard Point. Pitches are all individual and level and some quite private. There are plenty of water points and some electric hook ups. Toilets and showers (20p) are unisex, there is a laundry, loads of sculpture and art, exotic plants and a field with pigs, alpacas, goats, chickens and ducks. The chickens and ducks wander all over the site as well and there's also some guinea pigs in cages. Fresh coffee and cider are available on site and in season there is a café / take-away. Tucked away in a corner is a covered fire pit with terraced seating, apparently a great place for a bit of musical instrument playing and singing. Portable fire pits are also available to hire.
If you go down to Lizard point there is a lovely café that serves a mean cream tea and meringues the size of dinner plates.
The nearest dog friendly beach (20 mins walk) is no longer accessible due to coastal erosion.
Though we were there in low season (very quiet) we would love to return in the summer as we imagine that the site has quite a festival feel to it. Will definitely go back, such a chilled relaxing site.
We had a really lovely week at this site and would certainly go back there again. Our pitch was a lovely private walled enclosure with many plants and flowers. We were there during the second week of July and it was extremely hot so we were grateful for the shade provided by the trees around our pitch. The site may be unusual but it is very well run. We thought that the shop, The galleon (café) and the showers were great, no problems at all.
I like a site such as this where the owner is hands on and friendly. We found that everyone who worked there was helpful and they really work hard all day. We also liked the fact that it went quiet after 11pm when we were there. There are some lovely animals in a field next to the site and chicks and ducks on the site itself. The location is fantastic! you can walk into the village for food or a drink in a couple of minutes or wander down to the Lizard point in 10 minutes. There are many beautiful walks nearby around the cliffs and coves and we even saw a Cornish chough.
One of the good innovations at the campsite, at least on our pitch was the piece of artificial grass laid where our tent was pitched. It made such a difference when we packed up, no dampness, slugs or mud. It was a really good idea.
On our last night there was a singer performing in the main field. He was great and lots of campers brought out their chairs and cider to form an appreciative audience. A perfect end to a wonderful week.
This site is a little different. Not the bog standard sterile (imho) open field with a toilet block in the middle. Most pitches are surrounded by plants and bushes- and even the odd palm tree. There is a small building with 2 toilets and 2 showers in it, along with another couple in 2 smaller 'outhouses'. There is an on site shop and a galley that sells breakfast and a small selection of evening meals. Great walks (not too taxing) to various coves, and the village is 5 minutes walk. A little expensive? Maybe, but worth it. If I could wish for anything more- it would be for better showers!
This is a really special campsite. Stunning views and easy access to local beaches. We found the facilities to be good and the shop to be excellent. Really liked that you could buy all sorts of things in terms of both food and little treats.
There is also a wonderful central tent in which a fire burns each night and during our time there there was an either lovely music and/or storytelling which gave each day a special ending.
The fellow campers were lovely, relaxed and very friendly. The only recommendation would be to have more on-site space for children to play / run / climb yet I can see that would be tricky.
We also loved the fact that for most part we were unable to get a mobile / 3G signal which meant we were quite literally out of this world! We came home amazingly refreshed and replenished.
