A beautiful site which is spotless everywhere. There are modern toilets and showers which, surprisingly these days, are free. The site has very spacious pitches and the owners couldn't do more to make us welcome and were on hand when we needed them.

There are some fantastic walks very nearby and Polruan, with it's Pubs, a shop, a cafe and a pedestrian ferry to Fowey, is only a 10 min. Walk down the hill. The walk back up the hill is quite demanding but we did it in less than the 20 mins. Quoted by the owner !

All in all we could not fault the site however I would make a small observation in that the tap for the hose on the chemical loo emptying station could do with raising a little so that the cassette could be washed out properly without kinking the hose.

I think that a site which comes out of a review with such a minor quibble has to be the tops. Try it for yourself and enjoy rural Cornwall at its best.

We stayed at this campsite for 6 nights in August 2011. Overall we had a fantastic experience.

The campsite was clean, toilet block well equipt and we never had to wait for showers, lots of hot water. The reception area was really helpful with a whole room full of brochures and leaflets. The shop was excellent and had a good range of food and cleaning items. There was also a washing machine and dryer which was very useful, and enough sinks for washing up.

The view from the tent was fab, pitch size big enough for a good size tent and a car. We unknowingly stayed at the campsite Fowey regatta week. As luck would have it the regatta was excellent we really enjoyed the atmosphere in the towns.

For the view alone we would recommend getting water taxis from Polruan to Fowey for 1. 50 each this was the easiest way to get around the bay. Botallack had a car ferry further up the river.

Be aware there is a really steep hill from Polruan port up to the campsite, which at the end of the evening was tough (and we like to think we are quite fit!). However, there is a pub at the bottom of the hill which we found useful before we started the walk!

The Eden project was definitely worth a visit, Fowey kayaks were also a great way to see the bay and from the campsite a walk to Great Lantic beach is highly recommended. Sam's restaurant in Fowey was awesome, just get there early! Red admiral mackrel fishing was also a highlight.

Overall the campsite just complemented a lovely part of Cornwall which we thoroughly enjoyed, we would definitely go back again.

An adult focused campsite, which for us was great, just make sure you buy all your food and drink in St Austell before you arrive as the drive from there to the campsite is quite long.

What a beautiful camp site everything about it is first class from the stunning location to the spotless facilities.

The owners are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them they work really hard to keep the site so nice with lovely flowers everywhere.

The on site shop is really well stocked and not expensive. Kev puts a weather forecast up on the notice board every day and there is one of the most comprehensive ranges of local information I have ever seen almost a mini library.

All these extra touches add up to one of the best sites I have ever visited.

The location is so peaceful with some lovely walks nearby. As previously stated the hill back up from Polruan is really really steep but you do get used to it especially after a few drinks or a trip on the very handy ferry across to Fowey.

All in all if you want somewhere quiet to relax but not isolated this is the place to go brilliant!

We have just returned from a glorious five night stay at Polruan and yes the weather was fantastic which helped, but the site itself is lovely. We had a really restful and relaxed week.

There was a mix of couples and families there during our stay and with the few rules which are in place everyone respected each others space.

The owners are really friendly and helpful which seemed to rub off on nearly all their guests. The site is well run and always clean and tidy.

As the children on site are normally off with their parents exploring during the day the play area provided was more than adequate.

Would definitely recommend this site and hope to return in the near future.

Neither of us had been to Cornwall before and found this campsite purely by chance. Our initial plans were to stay on the south coast for 4 nights then move to the north coast for another 4. But having found this wonderful site we decided to base the entire holiday here.

If you're looking for peace, tranquillity and beautiful views look no further than Polruan Holiday camping and caravan site.

Both the site owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, the site was immaculate, very generous pitches, all the facilities you need. A big bonus being the use of a fridge.

Nothing was too much trouble, we met some lovely people who were also holidaying on the site and the weather was great too.

The site rules clearly state no noise after 10:30pm and this was always adhered to. A good nights sleep guaranteed.

Not able to comment on child friendliness as we were a couple staying on our own.

When we do return to Cornwall this will be our only site of choice. What more can you say.

As regular campers this is by far the loveliest site we have had the pleasure of staying on.

This our second camping adventure; the first being a local test run over a weekend earlier in the month. We thought we had just dropped lucky first time out, finding the facilities very high quality.

However, I am extremely please to report that Polruan Holidays site was equally as good. The showers, WC's, Chemical disposal point etc were all very well maintained and clean.

We pitched in the bottom field with an unforgettable view of the sea, which made made up for it being exposed to the elements during a very windy week.

The site has an excellent information centre, with just about everything you would ever need, including reasonably priced internet access (via fixed PC).

We could not recommend this site highly enough. It is extremely well by Kevin and his wife, who we found to be very helpful.

We have not scored on 'child friendliness' as we were on our own, however, the children on the site appeared very happy with the site, especially the play field.

We would certainly go back to this site again should we think of re-visiting this beautiful part of Cornwall.
