My husband and I spent a few days at Higher Kestle Farm C S and was very impressed. The location is peaceful, immaculately kept with plenty of space between tents/caravans/campervans and well placed hook-ups - water taps. There is a toilet/shower block (looks very new) which are well looked after and cleaned daily. There is also a washing up area, a freezer and plenty of bins. Also worth mentioning is the site is very dog friendly and campers who had a dog were very respectful of other people around them. The owners visit every evening who are very friendly and suggested places to visit and local walks. Mevagissey is a lovely place but we fell in love with Gorran Haven which has a cove and a harbour. We hired a Kayak for a few hours and explored the coastline which was stunning. Plus, we were told of an amazing walk from Gorran Haven to Mevagissey, which we did and saw the most spectacular views (took us a few hours so go prepared). Truly well worth a visit and do try this lovely campsite.

Didnt manage to research a campsite in Cornwall rain had altered our plans so arrived here following recommendation from another campsite. It was perfect for our needs. Very quiet, a field with a brand new shower block, which was always immaculate. Very laid back owners who would drive round in the evening give information if needed but otherwise left you to it. A couple of pubs nearby with good food, and there always seemed to be something going on, quiz nights open mic local musicians etc. Mevagissey is just down the road and is a great base to explore the coastline. No complaints. Would be happy to spend another week here. As mentioned previously the farm shop at Lost Gardens of Heligan sells great meat for barbeque. The gardens were one on my highlights. 5 min drive from campsite.

Beautifully-kept certificated site up the hill from Mevagissey. When we stayed, there were only two units on site as well as one which was not being used.

The toilets and showers are kept clean and have mirrors, liquid soap and clean new shower curtains.

The washing up facilities are outside but under a canopy. Bins labelled clearly for all rubbish are nearby.

The owners are very friendly and pop round to collect the fees which are very reasonable.

Within cycling distance of the Lost Gardens of Heligan: a definite place to visit. The well-stocked farmshop next to the gardens is owned by the same family as the site.

I have given a lower rating for the site facilities as they are basic but clean and were enough for us.

We will return here.

We loved this site. Quiet, secluded and spacious. Lovely views over the surrounding fields.

The owners popped by on our second day to collect the payment and were really friendly and chatty.

The toilets/showers were on the basic side but very clean and as the site was so quiet (there was only us, 3 caravans and a campervan all with older couples in). I never even saw anyone else use them so no queues!

As the other reviews mentioned the owners have a farm shop at The Lost Gardens of Heligan site and the produce is excellent.

Mevagissey is really close and we were there for the Mevagissey Feast Week which was really excellent. Well worth a visit. Fab fresh Mackerel baps and lots of yummy food being cooked on the harbour side.

St Austell is also close with a big Asda and Tesco for supplies. A perfect base for exploring Cornwall in my opinion especially if you want somewhere quiet and secluded.

Nice open site on the hilltops. There was only one other unit when we were there. Outside washing up facilities. Old 'school room' type of building with modern showers and toilets.

The ladies shower was a little tricky when we were there, just needed mastering. Plenty of water and hookup points around this spacious site. Lots of nice walks and views.

The roads to the site are very narrow with high hedges to the sides.

Lots of walks, including a walk to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, although we did not venture to do this one.

Well spaced out pitches around the ege,on well kept grass. Excellent farmland views,of cattle grazing,(but no Farmland mud to contend with,) A no frills site, with height of season prices around 15 inc. EHU (A bargain.)

Clean toilets/showers and a brand new looking building with other laundry / nwashing facilities. Out side washing up facilities with night lighting.

The site owners' family ran three Lobb's Farm Shops between them.Their own shop based nearby at 'The Lost Gardens of Heligan.'

This has been among our top sites so far.
