 Had a great week at this site, it is small and friendly. The staff are more than helpful, helped us onto the pitch and offered to assist in erecting the awning. My wife is disabled but no disabled toilet on site, this was not a problem to the wardens who made a step for her to get in the shower room, nothing too much trouble for them.

The shower block is good with all facilities needed, and wi-fi easy to pick up from our pitch.

We will return and recommend without hesitation.

Reviewer: Kernowman 5 reviews from this member

 We have just returned from a two day break at this lovely campsite. It is situated just off the A39 and is very easy to find and access.

The wardens gave us a very friendly welcome on arrival and showed us to our pitch. There is a blackboard at the reception with your name and allocated pitch number which is a useful touch. The pitches are well maintained with hedges between them to assist with privacy.

The standard pitches are a reasonable size if, like us, you do not have a full awning. However it did look a bit cramped for the people who did. In these circumstances it may be advisable to book one of the larger pitches. All the 'Gold' pitches have electric hook-up and none are very far from the drinking water supply or waste water disposal.

The facilities block is clean and functional and there are shower facilities available at no extra cost. There is also a laundry room which doubles up as a 'tourist information' room with lots of brochures for local attractions. Outside the facilities block are some concrete slabs to borrow to sit your disposable barbecue on.

There is also a well equipped play area for the children, which has swings, a climbing frame, trampoline, ball games area and a boat to play in. Our son particularly liked the trampoline.

The site is well situated for visiting North Cornwall and is close to both Wadebridge and Padstow. There is a Tesco supermarket about two miles away on the outskirts of Wadebridge and also a Co-Operative and Lidl supermarket in the centre of the town.

For those wanting to ride the Camel Trail, a bicycle route along the old railway line from Bodmin to Padstow, with a branch to Wenfordbridge, there are several bike hire outlets in Wadebridge, some offering free parking for customers. If you ride towards Bodmin look out for the Trail side café about half way which offers vey good tea and cakes, or cream teas and lunches in a pretty garden.

All in all, this is a very friendly and welcoming site. We would certainly return again for a longer stay.

 We [2 adults and 2 children] stayed at The Laurels for 4 nights in early August. On arrival there is a blackboard with your pitch letter on it and we were greeted by a lovely warden who put our tent up for us!

The site itself is wonderfully kept. The children loved the play area. The facilities block was spotless with hot water aplenty. The washing up area was in a small room which had tourist information for the area as well as books and magazines to borrow. There were fridges and freezers for guest's use as well as a coin operated washer and dryer. Outside there were airers for towels and washing as well as a wetsuit tank and further sinks.

I loved staying here, it was conveniently located for exploring and we would return without hesitation. It was very good value for money. The only negative was some road noise but this was soon sorted with a pair of earplugs.

 Have just returned from a 4 night stay. Picked this site from good reviews and near bus stop. Excellent. Beautiful pitches, very well maintained. Staff/owners very very helpful, nothing to much trouble. Toilet showers immaculate. Hourly bus service to Wadebridge and Padstow from stop outside gate. Also bus stop round corner to Newquay and Bude. Have recommended it to my sons family with caravan. Best site so far this year. Have already stayed on 6 others.

 I'll add a rider to my below review.

We left the van on the site for two weeks and then returned.

Unfortunately it was raining, immediately the site managers were around asking if we would like any help with the awning and offering any help they could including duck boards which they would supply. This site is very special because it is central enough to visit the whole of Cornwall. So impressed were we that we have left the van there in storage which costs approx £1. 00 a night. All with great security. Not only that, but the Wardens will get their tractor and store it for you AND put it back on your chosen pitch ready for your arrival.

Now that is what I call service!

All of this done with such charm and bonhomie.

Really can't fault this site.

Not having children I can' t really comment on the playground but I have given a rating of 10 because the play area looked so inviting I wanted to have a go on some of the playthings myself. Especially the boat.

There is WiFi and it's free, however you will need to be outside the reception office. There are plans afoot to activate the whole site, but not yet.

Another nice point, especially if you are in a tent, there are fridges and freezers in the laundry room and buying local produce to take home is a doddle

 We stayed at this site to visit the Padstow Mayday celebrations.

It wasn't that busy as I would have expected considering that 35 thousand people were expected visit Padstow.

The site has such easy access but could be easily missed.

Just past the show ground expect to turn right and having turned right it's an immediate turn right again. And you have arrived. A really nice touch is a blackboard at the entrance which will have your name on it and telling you where you are allocated. However a warden will almost always come out and greet you.

First to note, there is no shop, and neither should there be as there is a Tesco store at the roundabout you probably passed on your way in, and sells everything including camping/ caravanning stuff that you might have forgotten.

Now for the facilities. The pitches are flat, well maybe a little slope but nothing a caravaner couldn't cope with, I mean inches on the spirit level, nothing.

The toilet block is spotless although by modern standards a little dated, but copious amounts of hot water and the same applies to the washing areas as well. There are several freezers which you can use as long as your name is displayed

On the contents also lots of brochures for Cornish info.

Now for the good stuff.

The managers and Wardens are magnificent, them being campers and caravanners themselves, nothing is too much trouble for them they understand your needs. On one particular evening the manager came up and said ' we're having a barbecue tonight' I heard one tent say ' what should we bring?' Reply? Nothing just yourselves!

All in all a superb place to stay. On the down side? There's no pub close by

Ten out of ten in my book

Reviewer: MAURFROG 1 review from this member

 Excellent site first time campers in a tent and couldn't of picked a better place to go. Staff went out of their way to help. Clean tidy, wonderful hot showers, park for the children. Nothing too much trouble for the staff, gave us boards to put outside our tent because the rain was bad and the mud was getting quite deep. They even gave us towels because the tent leaked in. Above and beyond.

Fridge and freezer available in the wash room with a coin operated washing machine and dryer this was an excellent facility due to having two youngsters with us.

Will definitely return next year helped to make my first time in a tent an enjoyable one.

Reviewer: John + maggie 4 reviews from this member

 Weather was typically UK Summer ! Torrential rain( in between sunny skies, ) but pitches drained quickly so no hardship really. Site very quiet although next to the main road so some road traffic noise, ( didn't bother us ).

Showers and toilets clean and well maintained, Wardens very helpful without being intrusive. It was nice to see wardens walking about just in case you wanted to ask some thing.

We would definitely recommend for a quiet time, but knowing that you could just get in your car and drive to any busy area that you wanted to visit. It was a peaceful area to come back to.

 We Stayed one night on our bike ride from lands end to John o’Groats at The Laurel holiday park and it has to be one of the best kept campsites in the uk.

The showers were excellent and very welcome after a long day in the saddle. The facilities were fantastic enabling us to dry all our kit.

Thoroughly recommend for an overnight or for a longer stay great location.

Reviewer: Spraws78 1 review from this member

 We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the laurels with our 2 children aged 10 and 8.

The site is fantastic, the management extremely helpful and welcoming. The play area is perfect and kept the kids amused for hours!

The toilets and showers are always clean and free hot water was an added bonus.

Laundry facilities at reasonable cost and ironing board and iron available.

We had requested a large pitch for our new tent, on arrival the pitch was not big enough, the management quickly found us a more appropriate spot and even lent us a hook up extension as ours wasn't quite long enough to stretch to the available socket.

We had some poor weather and they were always around to check everything was ok and even helped fix another tent that was damaged before the owners returned!

There is some traffic noise, but a small price to pay - we would have happily stayed for the whole season!
