Just got back after 1 week at campsite, although we were only going to stay for 3 nights but it was so nice we stayed for week and travelled all around Cornwall from here.

Stephen and lene (owners) made us very welcome and helped with any information we needed. Toilets/showers/laundry and washing up areas were immaculate and the site was very clean overall. There was a curfue of 11pm which was ok with us, as we were up and out early.

There is a restaurant on site which you have to let owners know by 5.30 if you eating, we didn't always know when we went out if we were going to eat at site but a quick phone call to camp later in day was no problem. As for the food we ate there 3 times and what fantastic food we had which was not expensive. Small bar which was very friendly and either gordan or stephen always remembered what you were drinking.

Nearby Eden Project is a must, Looe and Polperro quaint little fishing villages, but St Ives and Boscastle also only about 1 hour away.

Well would we go back ? YES without a doubt.

My wife and I, with our dog, visited this site in early July 2009. As with all the sites we have visited over many years, there are good points and maybe slightly negative points with them all.

With Camping Caradon, I was very pleased with the welcome and the special helpfulness of the owners. They were cheerful and helpful with all the usual questions about buses and taxis and shops and dog walks and so on. We know they have had to answer the questions so many times, but they were more than happy to answer them once again to us. The site was well kept and very clean. We could tell they took effort and pride in it's upkeep. Although we didn't get a chance to use the bar and restaurant, several other fellow campers were happy to recommend the food.

My only concerns were that firstly, the pitches in the centre of the site felt somewhat close together, giving a feeling that when the site gets really busy it would feel very crowded, and secondly, with only 3 showers in the men's and 3 in the women's block, there could be some delays in the mornings. I would also suggest that the showers need to be more powerful, as this would mean less time in them and speed things up.

Although there are lots of areas off the site for dog walking, there is no dedicated dog walk on site. Maybe this could be a minus point for dog owners.

Altogether though, an enjoyable campsite, with very friendly owners and good facilities.

Pretty easy to find. Nice level site but a lot smaller than expected with no views to speak of. Its basically one field. Not many trees within the site so if its hot and you are tent camping, there is no shade.

Lovely and quiet at night with everyone respecting the quiet period which meant a good nights sleep!

Bar facility is a good idea especially for families who can view the kids playing on play area from the windows, and have a reasonably priced meal. Maybe not such a great place for couples!

Showers were always hot, clean and tidy. Nice touch being solar powered, site is doing its bit for the environment but small block with toilets directly opposite them. Not keen that this site allows dogs as there is nowhere to exercise them and therefore dog fouling is actually on pitch sites, even if people are clearing it up, its not pleasant pitching up where a dog has 'been'.

Charge for hairdryers and ice pack freezing - however its only 1 and you can freeze as many times as you like so not so bad.

Great idea to use the bus service in the high season as parking is often at a premium in the small villages around.

We stayed here for a week, our first holiday in our caravan (having finally admitted our age and progressed from a tent!). What a wonderful site. It was so peaceful and quiet, although it has to be said that this wasn't during the school holidays. The owners Steve and Lene were so helpful, they really couldn't do enough. We happened to mention that we were having difficulty in getting a TV reception and they lent us an aerial for the week. The pitches are level and spacious, the toilets and showers absolutely spotless. The surrounding area of Looe and Polperro was delightful and we were given lots of brochures and good advice on where we could go for lovely long walks with our dog. Would recommend to anyone.

Couldn't fault this site. Owners very friendly. Every aspect of the site was well maintained. Level pitches, good security and very quiet. The bar served up good food, at reasonable prices.

Great base for visiting Looe and Polperro. Regular buses into both from the site stop. Can recommend the lost gardens of Helegan if you're into that kind of thing. Mevagissy and Eden project are both a bearable drive away.

We will be back for sure.

Stayed here at the end of May, and what a find.

Firstly its a level piece of Cornwall, so not too much levelling!

Steve & the team are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble

The site has clean quality toilet blocks and A nice play area for the kids.

Nice bar/restaurant. Food is reasonably priced, and of good quality(try the fish or home made burgers) and local real ale goes down a treat!

Regular bus service from the entrance to Looe & Polperro, so no need to unhook.

This would be an oasis paradise if it had a pool (especially covered), but if it did it may loose its charm. We'll be back
