Reviewer: MartinAndNessa 2 reviews from this member

 We booked this site on the strength of the previous reviews on here and were so pleased we did. On arrival we were shown around the site and given a choice of where to pitch. The owner was genuinely friendly and couldn't have made us feel more welcome, telling us 'nothing much happens around here' which was music to our ears, we wanted a break from the rat race. And that's exactly what we got.

The site itself is almost level, brilliantly maintained, plenty of space and we found ourselves a nice quiet corner. The 'facilities' were more than ample, three showers/toilets and two washing up sinks, all very well appointed and immaculately kept. In fact, something my Mum would have been delighted with, which is saying something. Oodles of hot water and I mean hot. The owners clearly maintain their site to an incredibly high standard.

We struck gold with our first six days - the weather was outstanding. Split our time between chilling on the site, topping up the tan, and visiting other places both locally and further afield. This is a great base to explore all that Cornwall has to offer and being on the A39 easy access too. That said, we had no noise from the road and on the site we felt well and truly in the countryside.

Camelford itself has a small supermarket and several shops, pubs, restaurants. Wadebridge and Bude have 'proper' supermarkets. However, the garage over the road provided most of our supplies. Including some really decent meat and lovely locally produced bakery products.

Then the weather changed, as it does around here. So cheerio sun and hello fairly hefty winds and plenty of rain. Our tent took quite a battering, that said it remained pitched and the site certainly didn't become waterlogged. We cut our stay short by a day, but only for the sake of taking home a dry tent.

For a small and friendly, wonderfully maintained site, offering a break from the hustle and bustle, this site ticks all the boxes. I can't think of one criticism, the location is absolutely perfect. And I've stayed at some other wonderful sites in Cornwall too. 10 out of 10 on all counts, absolutely perfect. Fantastic value too.

 Just returned from 10 nights of pretty poor weather at this great site. After several days of rain the camping field entrance was getting churned up so the owner had some large stone shingle laid and this worked a treat.

Amenities were always clean and although there were only showers I managed to bath the children in a small cheap paddling pool in the disabled shower room without any problems.

As has already been mentioned the entrance is quite hidden but it is opposite the garage so easy enough to find based on that, located on the A39 there are no scary roads to worry about.

Will definitely return.

 Just came back from having stayed here for a week

The weather started mixed but by the end of the week the sun came out, the site is laid out very

Well with plenty of pitch spaces so you never felt

On top of each other the only done side was the entrance did get very muddy but that soon dried out.

The toilets and washing up facilities were excellent.

This is a excellent site for visiting north Cornwall lots of lovely coves to explore would recommend this site to anybody looking for a quiet peaceful relaxing holiday

 A lovely site, facilities very good. All grass pitches with shrubbery between each pitch which are very generous in size. Location off main road but hardly any road noise. Really good sized pitches.

Owners were one of the most helpful, nicest people we have met. We only stayed for two nights as a stop over but would return again for much longer.

Walk into Camelford only 10 mins with buses to various places. Handy Londis store at petrol station directly across from site.

One down side is only 6amp electric available.

We do not have children but children on site and no silly restrictions.

 This is a lovely little site and great value and I would not hesitate in recommending it and would definitely return.

We were not sure about booking, as the weather had been torential for weeks, but the owners did not want a deposit, so we reserved a pitch. After phoning to double check the ground was not waterlogged, we were really suprised on arrival at how good the grass was. It was only the start of the summer holidays, so had not had much traffic on it, but other campers had been turned away from muddy waterlogged sites, so this was pretty well drained. One drove in over the grass, so it got slightly muddy during the week, but Chris kept rolling it and spreading gravel over this. In any normal summer the ground would be fine.

The pitches are large, mown and separated by small bushes. Trees all round the site sheltered us from most of the wind, but we were still exposed to some windy nights, as the site is not actually in a valley as one may expect but is on quite high ground. Although just off a main road, the camping field is behind the farm house and there was no noise problem

Facilities were in a new small block with one ladies, one mens and one unisex/ disabled loo/shower, and some washing up sinks, which were all smart and always very clean. We never had to wait, although the site was only half full. There was a fridge for shared use, however it's coolbox was the only place to frezze icepacks and it was not up to the job. This is probably my only critiscsm of the site (stopping it getting a 10)and could be easily rectified (and to be fair Chris did say he would put them in his freezer for us).

The location is great for exploring this part of Cornwall. The Londis opposite was perfect for small purchases (including camping gas) and there is a Co Op nearby and for stocking up a large Tescos on the outskirts of Wadebridge.

Trebarwith Strand is the nearby beach and was lovely, but only accesable for about 5 hours, disappearing at high tide, so you need to check the tide times. It is quite a shallow beach, so good for our 4 year old daughter who just wanted to jump waves, try her body board out and investigate the pools. It is cheaper to park if you get there before the tide has gone out. The Port William pub overlooks the bay and has a good selection of food. The staff were great with our daughter, even redoing her dinner, which they had put 'green stuff' on (parsley), so we returned a couple of times.

We also went to Rock which has a much sandyer beech and a quick ferry ride takes you across the estuary to Padstow and its shops. Polzeath offers waves for those who want a bit more surf.

A ride down the camel trail is a must and you can get all sort of bikes and trailers in Wadebridge for any type of rider (even trycyles for those who cant ride).

So many more places we did not get to see this time, so wll go back

 My wife and I had a whole week here with EHU. The site was less than half full probably due to poor weather.

Following persistant rain in previous weeks (and on several days we were there) the ground was quite sodden but the drainage on the camping field was good enough to prevent puddles and mud. (Other than on the entrance which the owners did work on by putting down chippings. )

Trees and bushes around the edge of the field give some protection from wind and gives the site an isolated, rural feel. The toilet and shower facilities were excellent but would be very limited if the site was full. Despite being just off a main A road, the site was quiet with no obvious traffic noise. The site is well laid out with plenty of space in each pitch and space in the middle for children to run around. There is no children's play equipment on site but there is a well maintained play park in Camelford itself.

Overall this site is recommended but be prepared to wait for toilet/showers at busy times.

 We stayed at this lovely site mid July. It was everything that we wanted, small, quiet and very well kept. The facilities were spotless and there was always plenty of hot water. The camping field is well laid out, the pitches are more than generous and the whole field seems nicely drained. The owner is a very pleasant chap for which nothing is too much trouble either.

Well located for many interesting places, we would definitely stay here again. Oh and very reasonably priced too!

 Had to book last minute as site we had booked was flooded. Normally go to adult only sites but very glad we went to this site, small 15 units but spacious and very clean.

Toilet and shower facilities excellent. As my husband is 6ft 8' tall finds it hard to use most shower blocks, he used the disabled one on site and was very happy.

The children on the campsite were very well behaved and the site was still quiet. The walk into Camelford, takes about 20mins from campsite. The local pub the Masons Arms is a very tradition pub with lovely grub but mind the beams !

The Londis shop across the road does lovely pastys and the fish shop a short walk away is outstanding does not open sundays or mondays.

If you love a bargain and are a bit of a shop a holic then you must go to Trago Mills large shopping outlet about half a hour away by car.

From camelford you are well situated to visit falmouth, padstow, bodmin, etc. St michaels mount and lanhydrock house well worth a visit.

Will be going back to this campsite again next year.

 We have just spent a cracking couple of days at Cherry Cottage campsite, despite the weather doing it's up most to spoil it!

It's fair to say this is the most relaxed, and friendly campsite we have both stayed at so far on our camping travels.

Nothing was to much trouble, the facilities were clean, modern and available 24/7

A lovely touch is the arrival and departure times, basically there aren't any! we could come and go at our pleasure, a refreshing change.

The location is perfect for exploring north Cornwall and beyond, with lots of useful info in the shower blocks.

Top tip is the local fish and chip shop in Camelford 'Peck Fish' well worth a visit, we feasted on Haddock and chips, lovely.

So to sum it up this is a great little campsite, with a lovely feel to it at a superb price, 10 a night is a bargain we felt.

For sure we will return in the future.

 Our second stay at this lovely site. We stayed for the jubilee weekend and our only disappointment was the weather! The toilets/shower block has now been extended and now has 3 showers and one separate toilet. Only had to queue once for the loo! Everything is immaculate, with a tv to watch whilst doing the washing up. The tv was very popular with the tent campers who watched the jubilee celebrations on it! Walked into camelford this time and had a lovely meal at a pub - I think it was called the masons arms. It takes about ten mins to walk from the campsite. There is a londis at the garage opposite but there is also a coop 5 minutes walk away. There were quite a few families on the site but the pitches are so large it was still very peaceful. However we will not be cycling the camel trail or visiting padstow on a bank holiday weekend again-too crowded ! A gem of a site, we will be back
