A great site. Well managed and friendly owners who take a pride in the site and the customer service that goes along with a very pleasant stay. The site has a well run bar and restaurant serving well kept beers and a limited well cooked menu. The site has a bus stop outside the gate serving Looe and Polpero.

The facilities are well maintained and meticulously kept. Site general level.

Reviewer: Chrisworks 1 review from this member

Having visited many camp sites in recent years, Camping Caradon rates as one of the finest. The owners run a pleasant and well maintained facility and their professional approach is echoed by their staff. For a medium sized site it has a restaurant/bar facility that would equal that of larger venues and indeed surpass many with the quality of food and drink. From experience the quality of the Tribute (cornish bitter) was second to none. As caravaners we normally do our own thing when it comes to evening meals. The quality and range of food available tempted us out on no less than four occasions during our seven night stay. We had different meals each night and all were excellent.

Importantly, the standard of other facilities was on the same high level. Clean and well maintained toilet and shower block, good sized pitches and adequate water and waste points.

Morning papers can be pre ordered and the on site shop keeps a range of essentials

The local bus calls at the site and is a great way to visit local places, such as Looe and Polperro. No more hunting for a parking space or feeding the parking meter. The owners are happy to suggest other places to visit and can advise on walks and local attractions.

Speaking to other campers, it turned out that many of them had visited this site on many occasions and it was plain to see why.

If you fancy a stress free holiday, try Camping Caradon. You won't be disappointed.

I have just returned from Caradon camping after spending a week there. It was our first visit to the site and we will be returning without doubt. The owners were very helpful and friendly, pitches were spacious and had electric hook up if desired. We had some very heavy rain during the night and the site drainage was excellent. The toilet block was one of the cleanest we have ever used and definitely the hottest water of any site we have been on. The family room was one of the best especially if taking a young baby as it even had a baby bath and stand. Every sink at the pot washing facilities had its own bowl and drainer. It had an excellent take away at reasonable prices, bar was well stocked and clean family room had plenty to keep kids occupied ie pool table, darts, table tennis and a play station there was also free wi fi that covered the whole site we thought long and hard to find a negative about this site but we couldn't. In the 43 years we have camped this is the only site that ticked all boxes for our needs we look forward to returning.

Where to start. Arrived on Saturday 8th August to be greeted by the owner on reception with a very warm welcome. Were advised pitch was not quite ready as grounds man was currently cutting grass in the location we had been allocated but we were more than welcome to go and have a look around. We had a wander round to find our pitch and were asked by the grounds man if we were checking in. He immediately stopped what he was doing and came over and mowed our pitch so we could set up. Fantastic service. Once we had pitched up we went to check the amenities and to say we were very impressed is an understatement. The toilet and shower facilities were excellent and to find a washing up area that provides both washing up bowls and drainers was brilliant!. The bar though small is very nice as it is an adult only area with a separate area for families with pool table and table tennis. The barman was very friendly and once again the owner was present. The food from the takeaway on site was lovely I would definitely recommend the Singapore rice. Throughout our weeks stay we always found the site was kept immaculately by not only the owners but other campers on site. We found all the staff very warm friendly and helpful. This is a site the owners should be very proud of. A point of note, we were away during a period when we had 24 hours of rain and the drainage on site was fantastic(no slipping around in mud. We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a campsite that is small friendly relaxing and peaceful. Will definitely be going back in 2016 and taking family with us. Thanks for a great time Caradon keep up the good work you are a great team !

A good campsite, well maintained and a good location for exploring the local area. Hosts very welcoming, flat pitches.

Showers were good- plenty of hot water but only 3 in ladies which led to queues at peak times.

Wifi is available however it was unreliable and very slow at the far end of the site.

Excellent food from takeaway quality and good value for money.

Good spar in Pelynt (1. 5 miles) which covered most grocery needs. Talland Bay is worth a visit if you like beach/rockpools.

This is a lovely family site, many thanks to the owners for making our holiday so enjoyable.

The facilities are good and are kept very clean, although perhaps the washing up sinks are a little low and need to be updated.

We like the clubhouse and the take-away food.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Kwright 1 review from this member

The site was immaculate, the owners clearly took pride in keeping it well maintained. The shower block was clean, although there were only three showers in the ladies I never queued once and water was always hot. The shower itself was big enough to take my daughter in with me, with one half sectioned off with the shower curtain so that our clothes didn't get wet. We generally don't go to sites with bars/clubhouses but we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet and relaxed this one was. Also perfectly positioned along side the children's playground. The local area is lovely, so much to see and do. Overall we loved it here and will return.

Reviewer: Rlavington 2 reviews from this member

All facilities were clean and tidy. Friendly and helpful staff. We felt that the pitches were quite close together and resulted in the neighbours wind breaks and vehicles being very close to us.

Our only criticisms are as follows :-

A charge of 2. 50 per night for our little dog, but there was no dog walking area on site and was told to go into the lanes outside the camp but there was no grass verges there. So what is the 2. 50 for?

We were keen to have WI-FI while we are on site but the wi-fi signal was either not connected or when it was on it was very weak so as not able to receive the Internet.

I reported this to the staff but no improvement resulted.

Reviewer: Colin21 10 reviews from this member

An ideal site from which to see this beautiful part of the country. Very well maintained by the very friendly owners, and just a nice size. It is well sheltered, and because of this the high winds we had during our stay caused us no problems at all. All the facilities are spotlessly clean and in very good order. The pitches are nice and level, and the grass is cut frequently. The reception/shop is well stocked with leaflets showing local attractions, and has a good selection of essentials such as milk etc. Bread and newspapers can be ordered for daily delivery. There are two small supermarkets within 1. 5 miles, and all essentials not available on site can be bought there. An excellent local bus runs from just by reception, and I would recommend this for visiting Looe and Polperro, as parking can be difficult. I would give 10/10 for everything, but the only very minor niggle was the lack of an on-site dog walk. Our little dog doesn't always want too walk far, and the road outside the site is very narrow and high-sided with no verges. I realise however that this is probably outside the site-owners' control. Camping Caradon will certainly go on our list of very favourite sites, and I would recommend it to anyone.
