Reviewer: Pickledegg69 2 reviews from this member

This is a fabulous site, small disadvantage is that the units are quite close together, and there is no view as the field is surrounded by bushes, but the advantages are numerous.
Owners helpful and friendly. Grass kept very short, field is flat, with good drainage. Very reasonable priced.
Shower block, ladies have 3 showers, 6 loos, 6 sinks. The shower block is closed between 12 and 2.30 for a thorough clean, though the loos in the bar area are open during that time. There are hooks on the doors of the loos and showers to hang stuff, as well as a seat in the shower.
Showers are free, hair dryer is 20p of 2 mins.
Small laundry room, 2 washing machines (£3 in 50p), 1 dryer (50p) and an iron and ironing board (20p).
There is a small playground for children, as well as a games room with snooker, PS1 and some games open during the day. The is a small bar, with another games room open in the evening, that one has snooker, table tennis, darts, a TV, board games and some toys for younger children.
There is a book area, where books, and sometimes other items appear in return for donations to the RNLI.
There is a small onsite shop selling the basics, bread, milk, papers, bacon, eggs, etc., a few toys, tinned stuff, and some camping essentials, including gas.
The owners are quite strict and as soon as the bar shuts, he goes around and enforces quiet time at around 11pm. I know some people didn't like this, but for us it was a boon, we go away for peace and quiet and a good nights sleep.
In the local area I would recommend a visit to Looe, some good boat trips from there, Polperro, The Monkey Sanctuary, Eden Project, Portwrinkle for a fabulous beach, Charlestown, and all the surrounding villages for some excellent views, picnic areas and village pubs, all cater for families.
All in all, a good base to look around the area, and an excellent site to stay on.

Just spent a week here. The facilities are excellent, toilets/showers immaculate. Shop on site sells essentials but there are shops in the local village of Pelynt. Within 10 minutes drive to the beaches. Our only complaint would be the noise from the play area at night (until 10.30ish) kids running around screaming and cycling around play area.

Would definitely go back in the Autumn.

Great site but the only thing that got up my nose was the smell of the lawn mower, he kept driving up and down all day checking up on your pitch.

Apart from that it was great. The shower blocks great the club was great. Level pitches

I just felt looked over all the time with the owner ramming health and safety down your throat

Reviewer: Morag MacDoodle 20 reviews from this member

Stayed here over the easter weekend, one adult and two kids in a tent with EHU. £11.50 a night and it was a bargain! The pitch was level and the grass was immaculate. The pitches are open, not fenced off like some places. We prefer that.

The toilet block and washing up area were immaculate and there were three showers in the mens as opposed to two, stated in an earlier review.
The club house was great. Somewhere for the adults and another room for the kids. I believe they have also added a climbing frame / swing arrangement just outside the pub for this season. The kids loved it.

Plenty to see around the local area. We would definitely return.

Reviewer: Debsy 110 reviews from this member

I was disappointed with this site as I had read the other reviews but wasn't as impressed. The pitches are one behind the other so people do walk through your pitch unless you windbreak it off. The owners were fine - kept going on about health and safety and how to park.

Not much room for kids to play - if you like being in a field with owls etc then this isn't for you. I wouldn't come back here particularly - I also thought it was noisy ( we have got two kids ourselves).

Having said that the little room for the kids was good - PS1 and a pool table (50p). So all in all it was ok but nothing special.

Very pleased with this super little site. Family who run it (and also live on site) are so helpful and friendly and keep everything SPOTLESSLY clean and tidy with well kept flower borders and tubs about the place. I'd say it's one of the nicest small sites we've ever stayed on. Level and good sized pitches with close mown grass. Liked the fact that if no-one was in the small shop or reception area, a board was put up saying where they could be found and as the site is quite small they were never very far away. 
The site is also quite 'Eco' friendly too with solar powered showers and recycling bins next to ordinary rubbish ones. Stayed there over Easter and got an amazing deal of staying for 7 nights for the price of 5 AND we only paid normal low season prices too!
The Bar area was cosy, a bit like a country pub where you can just sit and relax and actually have a chat without shouting over loud music pumping out of a disco. It's true that the site could benefit from a designated play area and according to the owner that's something they have in mind for the future as they too have young children.
It's worth noting also that they have a couple of touring vans on site for hire at quite reasonable rates, great idea if you'd like to go on holiday with extended family or friends but don't want to all bunk up in the same caravan. We will def be going back to this site!

Very good family run site, owners very helpful. Toilets & showers very clean and tidy . Only two showers on the mens side which might prove difficult in high season. There is an small on site club which does excellent bar meals and the drinks prices are very reasonable! It is not a loud disco type club and is non smoking. Buses stop outside the entrance to Looe and Polperro. Site is level with good access.

Reviewer: Pepsi118 4 reviews from this member

Excellent small family run site. Quiet with small bar & indoor games room. Bar food available. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who very helpful & friendly. We had booked for 2 nights with the choice to stay for 3 if we liked the site which we did. My children made lots of new friends and the regulars were keen to recommend as they had returned year on year.

Reviewer: XxAbixx 5 reviews from this member

We went in the middle of August and this site was great. A nice flat site with good size pitches and not crammed in. Electric points around the outside and tents in the middle. Pitches were well kept, grass short but not bare!

The family who run it are very pleasant, nothing is too much trouble and they really seem to enjoy running their site.

Little bar on-site for the adults and a gamesroom next to the bar for kids, best of both worlds adults can have adult time but easily keep an eye on the kids! Lots of board games and books etc for kids & adults alike!

Showers were clean and solar powered (interesting poster on shower block telling you all about it) rest assured even when the sun doesn't shine theres hot water!

Small shop that stocked the essentials, bread, milk & ice-creams! ok and a few other bits & pieces! Also daily papers!

Looe & Polperro are 2 1/2 miles away with plenty of pubs & eating out places, both have beaches and are on the southwest coast path. Stunning views all around!

You will need to use your car from this site but it is central to many tourist attractions and only 10 mins from the main A38 that will take you further down into cornwall. The site is on a bus route that regularly goes to Looe & Polperro. Eden project is about 1/2hr away as is Plymouth.

We would recommend this site for a quiet break with the added option of having a bar on-site!

Super little family run campsite. Good points - Level well kept pitches, centre of field left open for kids games, good value for money (may bank holiday - £11pn for our big tent, 2adults+2kids, trailer and dog), free and clean showers (2 for the boys, 3 for the girls), small laundry, handy basic shop, nice small bar serving evening meals and adjoining games room with pool(50p) table tennis(25p to buy and keep your ping-pong ball) playstation(£1 per hour) table footy(50p) + free darts, doms, connect4 jenga, cribbage and other board games and a small selection of books to choose from for a 50p donation to the RNLI. Neg points - no kids playpark (owner claimed liability insurance was doubled last year), no dog exercise area, nearest place for off-lead run was the woods a half mile down lane. Would definitely use again.
