 Just arrived back from this site and have nothing but praise. The owners were there when we arrived and allowed us to select our pitch which were more than ample in size. The shower block was always clean and tidy. When we arrived the site was very quiet so it was great for our 3 kids who could run free. If we needed anything the owners were there to help. It is in a great quiet setting, in a great location to visit loads of places. We will definitely be booking soon for next year hopefully for longer

 Just got back after spending 6 days here. Easily found and a good base for visiting different areas of Cornwall.

On arrival we were met by the owner Chris who couldn't be more helpful. He walked us on to the camping field and helped us choose a pitch. He told us to pay on our last morning as we were leaving and said to give him a knock if we needed anything.

The camping field is immaculate and there are only 15 or 16 pitches, but all are level, well maintained and with EHU.

The facilities block was spotlessly clean all week with access to a fridge & freezer. There are 2 showers/toilets for ladies and just 1 for the gents again spotless. My only concern was only having one gents toilet and shower, but I never experienced any problems while we were there. I think the addition of one more toilet/shower would make a great difference when the site was busy.

There is also a recycling area and chemical disposal point again very clean and well maintained.

The level of service we received throughout our stay was superb and I will be returning to this site and thoroughly recommend it.

 We were looking for a one night stay at a cheaper campsite with close proximity to the A39 and Cherry Cottage fitted the bill exactly. We initially emailed the site to check for room and replies were prompt.

We turned up on the Saturday afternoon - site is easy to find if you look for the garage just as you pass the 'Valley Truckle' street sign. As soon as we pulled into the drive we were met by the very friendly owner who took time to chat to us and show my husband around the facilities.

There was only one other unit on site, lovely and peaceful and we were given the option to pitch where we wanted.

Pitches are HUGE! Plenty of room for unit + awning plus bits and bobs, grass is lush and green and extremely well kept - as is the whole site. There is shrubbery separating pitches and we loved how they kept the hedgerows with wildflowers growing. We picked a pitch right at the back of the site with a hedge at the rear backing onto farmland.

If you're a bird lover, you will love it here - we heard so many birds, it really was a pleasure to sit out and listen to them.

Road noise was surprising - I was expecting the road noise to be more considering the proximity of the A road. This was minimal, don't be put off by the site being close to the road as apart from a noisy motorbike now and again it was peaceful and relaxing.

Facilities - absolutely immaculate. I have been to some posh sites over the years and this one is up there with the best, if not THE best for cleanliness. Spotless showers and toilets - even had the radio playing when I went in at 6am! The dishwashing sink has a TV next to it, everything is modern and well kept.

We left early the next morning as husband was surfing at Polzeath which is a 20 minute drive away - site is very handy for Camelford, Wadebridge, Port Isaac, Boscastle, Tintagel and all of North East Cornwall.

To sum up - fantastic little site with friendly owners and superb shower/loo facilities. From 13 a night you simply cannot go wrong. If you are after a quiet site with easy access to come back to after a day of exploring then this is the site for you.

 Just spent a lovely 3 nights camping over the Easter weekend at Cherry Cottage. This is a lovely little site and the owners couldn't be more helpful. The site was quiet, with only 3 other units there, so we could pick a pitch and were able to spread out (we take up a lot of room as we have a very large tent). It was lovely and quiet at night, there was some traffic noise but it wasn't intrusive in any way. Our 3 teenage girls loved the site, particularly the toilet/wash block which was beautifully appointed, warm and clean.

There is a garage and Londis shop opposite the entrance, we found this very handy for supplies.

The only very small criticism is that there are only 3 toilets/showers, mens, ladies and disabled. While this was fine as it was quiet, I imagine there would be some queueing in peak season.

There are plenty of attractions in the area, we enjoyed the witch museum in Boscastle and Jamaica inn. There are also some lovely beaches to explore.

I would definitely recommend the Hidden Valley discovery centre, we had a fab day out here, it is suitable for all ages; even the moody teenagers loved it and said they would go back again!

 This is a wonderful site. This is the second year in a row we have stayed here it is such good value for money and such a comfortable place to camp.

The owners are so friendly and work incredibly hard to maintain the site. As a result, the excellent facilities are always spotless and the site beautifully maintained.

The facilities too are better than any campsite we have been to. Shower, toilet and basin each in individual bathrooms. And these bathrooms are nicer than our own bathroom at home. Showers too are piping hot, free and really powerful.

Being on the A39 is also very handy to get around. We especially loved popping to the St Kew farm shop down the road to get the fresh baked bread from the artisan bakery there. The garage shop over the road is also really handy and has everything the camper needs.

Go there - it's great!

 Can not recommend this site enough. Very friendly owners come and greet you on arrival, show you your pitch and give you any information required.

Area is lovely, pitches are well kept and grass is nicely mown, no clipping left to be trod into the caravan.

I echo the other reviews on the shower blocks etc, and will say, we were staying when the site was fully booked, all you need to do is time your showers well, a bit like been at home, with the kids.

Do take notice of the advice on the electric, we found our caravan fridge coming on and off later in the afternoon, when other people were using electric power. Not too much of a problem as we switched to gas until late in the night, but worth considering if you use a lot of electrical appliances.

I would definitely return to this site again.

Many thanks to the owner & wife for a wonderful time.

 We love this site so much. Its a great site, we have stayed twice now, once in 2011 and again in 2013. Wouldn't hesitate to book again. The owner is lovely bloke, always warm welcome. Site is spotless! lovely field, clean great facilities for showering, toilets, washing up etc, THE best we have EVER used on a campsite.

Camelford is nice village, stopped in a few times to stock up on bits at co op and have a pint at the pub and the fish and chip shop 'peckish' is just that! its great food! Of course the site is brilliantly situated for Boscastle, Tintagel, Bude etc and not far even for a trip to Port Issac on our first night after we set up the tent :)

Great site, will book again!

Reviewer: Fionaloisebarnes 1 review from this member

 Very clean and well maintained site. Brand new shower and toilet block, with disabled facility. Washing up area and fridge/freezer to put a few essentials. The pitches are perfect for your tent and your car. It is a secure site and gates are closed between 10-11pm and opened 7am. You can let yourself in/out at any time. There is a garage just across the road which has a shop/gas and petrol. Camelford is just down the road and the fish and chip shop is to die for. It's about 3 miles to trebawarth strand where there's a beach, but you have to wait for the tide to go out before you can access it. Perfect for surfing, body boarding or just relaxing.

Owners are very accommodating and endeavor to keep a very high standard. Free range eggs are available each day 6 for 1 bargain.

This is a very quiet site but perfect for relaxing and watching the stars at night. Travel to some attractions within 1 hour - eden project, newquay zoo/beaches, tintagel, boscastle and port isaac.

 We were met by a very friendly and helpful owner who assisted our arrival with all the info we needed. This is a beautifully kept site with neat clipped and nice sized pitches with small shrubs in between.

Toilets and showers were very clean and modern and comprised one ladies shower and one Men's shower which was adequate when we stayed because their were few other campers, this may not be adequate when the site is busy or full. Also one men's loo and one ladies, again possibly inadequate at busy times - you can however watch the TV in the loo block if you need to wait or queue!

Also in the main loo block is a couple of washing up / veg prep sinks - all in all very clean and modern.

The entrance to the site is quite small but is easily navigated and is marked by the BP Garage opposite which also has a very handy Londis supermarket for any bits you need to buy.

Just over half a mile away is Camelford, a pleasant enough place with a couple of pubs - we used the Masons Arms under recommendation from the site owner and had a great meal! This is a very pleasant site and very quiet considering the main road is just a few yards away. This is also a pay only by cash site, however there is a cash machine in the garage opposite. This is a lovely site which we would use again - our neighbour on site had been there 3 weeks so he obviously liked it!

 This is a beautiful level site, and immaculately kept. The owners are lovely, friendly, welcoming people. It has the advantage of being near to a main road, but set back so you are not aware of it, thus providing a feeling of being in a secluded area, with the convenience of being able to get out and about easily.

There is a lovely riverside walk to the town nearby.

The area is outstandingly beautiful, and the coast is only a short drive away.
