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.

Lovely site but we felt expensive for the facilities provided at the time of our 3 night visit, though the location is superb and the site layout itself and the laid back ambience is really good. Particularly liked being able to have a roaring fire basket at our pitch. We did not appreciate the lack of cleanliness at the shower / washroom facilities. These were a 'work in progress' during our visit, and I am sure will be very smart once complete, but could have been kept cleaner for those of us expected to have to use them during the refurb.

A few more lights to show the way home after a night down the pub would be welcome. (we had a torch, but the tracks are uneven)

For pub atmosphere avoid Top House, an absolute horror, and Housel Bay (no real ale) and go to Witch Ball, which is excellent. Lizard butcher has top quality stuff and Ann's Pasties are really very good.

Walk to Cadgwith (5m return) and to Kynance for stunning cliff top scenery.

Glad we stayed. The site would be brilliant with just a little more attention to detail.

We arrived to a warm welcome from Ron (his sister is Jo who co owns this site)and were shown to our pitch (Sugar loaf) and we were shown where the facilities were. It is a very bohemian site with lots of long stayers.

The views I imagine would have been spectacular however it was cloudy and foggy when we went.

The only gripe I have is the cost as were were charged per person rather than per unit (like eveywhere else) and this was £23. 50 which was £5 more than most of the other places we stayed.

Also with the cost being so steep I really expected free showers! its a shame there was not another site in Lizard as this makes them a monopoly for the immediate area.

As others have said, this is a lovely, quirky campsite. Fab location, lovely walks, coves and so on and Lizard village has just enough along with the shop on site. Toilets, showers are fine, although 20p or even 60p doesn't last long. Beautifully laid out with impromptu acoustic music session. It was quite busy and you are quite close to your neighbours, although with the layout it's not cramped. My one major let down regards dogs. While I appreciate the problems some dog owners may cause on sites, I would prefer site owners to have a no dog policy so I know where to camp. On this site there are notices warning dogs owners that if your dog poos on site, even if you clean it up properly, you will be asked to leave. This left me stressed and our dogs found themselves being dragged up the site and over an impossible stile onto the track. I do understand that there are thoughtless owners and I hate dog poo as much as the next person, but I found this spoiled my stay here, and I wouldn't return with dogs.
