I wanted to love this site and it's nearly excellent.

There are three fields, a large main one with pond and shower/wcs, a second field reserved with more ponds reserved for the on-site vans and a third with ehus at one end and another water point.

No fixed pitches but plenty of room in both fields when we stayed even though the site was quite busy.

Showers/loos are basic but clean. There are only two loos/two basins and one shower for each sex though so if it was properly busy or hot weather things might start to get a bit ripe or involve a fair bit of queueing. There are signs of work on a second sanitary block which would be very welcome.

I feel that the owners should give serious thought to adding a pot-wash area.

Moving on from the niggles, the site is lovely in lots of ways. We were able to watch swallows and bats as the evenings wore on. There are dragon-flies hunting over and around the ponds. We found a baby Common Lizard climbing up our tent one evening, we were impressed but escorted him or her gently from the premises before retiring.

The site is well placed for a visit to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and sells discounted tickets which save you a pound each and a lot of waiting in line. It's also handy for the Eden Project.

The pub in the village is a ten minute walk. We ate there one evening and it was rammed, so booking is advised. Food/beers were fine.

Highly recommended for a short break provided you're OK with a basic camping experience. As this is a topic which seems to come up a lot on the forums I'll add that there were lots of children but not an excessive amount of noise at any point and all was quiet by 9. 30pm.

This is the most beautiful site we have stayed at for a long time. It's very basic but that's the beauty. This is about spending time with like minded easy going people. Its about enjoying being in the open air, watching the wildlife pass you by, jumping in a row boat and floating on one of two lakes. The toilet facilities are basic 2 toilets, 2 basins and 1 shower each for male and female. There clean and the waters hot. The owners are so friendly they will do allmost anything for you, there waiting for new toilet blocks to be built and were let down for this season. The morning alarm call from the wildlife will stir you at around 06:30.

Theres only one thing you need to remember if you want an electric hook up. Bring a long cable if you want a good space between you and the neigbours. Its 20 metres from the furthest hook up to the other side of the field so allow around 30 to 40 metres to get away 😉.

My daughter and I spent two nights here on our tour around Devon and Cornwall, once we had found the entrance to the site - there was no sign when we were there.

Lovely quiet, well laid out site with lake/pond in the centre of the tent field, that we pitched by. Not too crowded, everyone had space around them even though the site was 'full'. There was a second field for caravans and EHU. Loved the availabilty of a small boat to row around the lake - all very safely done. The morning and evening procession of Ducks and ducklings, to and from the pond, was sweet

We were not impressed with the available facilities - two toilets and one shower for the ladies of two fields. They were clean, but too small and too few. Having a shower at 7. 30am was fine, just a wait for the one person in front - but those who left it any later were in a long queue. Mens looked similar. No washing up facilities at all - though you were allowed to take hot water back to your pitch for this.

The owners are uber friendly, the site is huge, and has a feel of total serenity. We stayed for a couple of nights and I spoke to the owner and asked if we could be away from other campers - no problem at all, the site is so big, with a few different fields so easy to hide away. There are a few ponds (mini lakes) with boats so you can row around in the sun. Shower and wash facilities are adequate, and clean.

It very very picturesque, and you feel completely relaxed with no noise except birds and the occasional cow. Lots of farms chickens, goats and pigs to make a fuss of, and beautifully maintained flowered 'hidden' gardens surround the area. Logs are available for purchase and if you need anything else, St. Austell is about 2 miles away. Mevagissy is about 5 miles away too, and is a lovely town. Please don't bank on any WiFi - there is none, and no Wifi in Mevagissy either (3G).

I would like to say thank you to the owners and we will be back very soon.

We spent a week in August (high season) here and yet there were only 3 units in our field using electricity (as limited electric points clumped together in a corner of 1 field) and approx. 9 tents in the camping field.

The site has much more space and potential. It was a very traditional, no frills farm site where the owners looked after numerous chickens and cockerels, 2 pigs and 2 goats as well as growing plants to sell.

The site was off the beaten track and needs a sign at the entrance to avoid towing vehicles overshooting and struggling to reverse down country lanes.

The toilet facilities were very basic - only 1 operational toilet and 1 shower each for gents and ladies in a shed-like building which was not very level making it difficult to open doors etc. During our stay the remaining gents toilet was taken out of service as the sewerage tank was full and men were asked to share with the ladies. This was emptied into a drain next to our tent!

There were no pot washing facilities.

On the plus side, the site was spacious and had a certain relaxed charm with a small lake and boat to use. There was a little summer house containing games and local information. It was only a 10 min walk to the nearest pub and shop in Sticker'

The owners lived in 1 of 2 static caravans at the entrance to 1 of the fields and were very pleasant and helpful - The gentleman let us use his land-line phone as no mobile signal.

All in all, despite feeling that the site was expensive for the very poor facilities, we had a good time and enjoyed our stay.

This site is perfect if your are looking for a more traditional campsite. No club house no shop just toilets and showers what more do you need, the local shop is 10 mins walk away, as is the pub. You can have a real camp fire and then invite your fellow campers to join you and make your own entertainment, kids can toast marshmallows on a open fire. Perfect.

The site has a series of new ponds, 2 with boats on so you can row round, wildlife is just starting to take hold, plenty of dragon flies when we went in July. Bats of a evening, and as no light pollution the stars show up really well (even saw a shooting star). My two kids made friends within minutes of arriving and went off exploring and seeing the chickens, goats and the pigs around the site, a simple rope swing tied to a branch was hours of fun (who needs a dsi or iphone for fun).

As we live only 25 miles away I can see us going back for lots of weekend stays.

This site is how I remember camping when I was a child no frills just the basics, this may not be for everyone but for those looking for the laid back style then give this site a try
