This was perhaps the prettiest & most perfect of campsites. 4 of us stayed over Easter with 2 tents. It cost in total about 35 for 3 nights for all of us - brilliant.
It is located near Bodmin and therefore a perfect distance from most attractions, like Eden & Tintagel.
The facilities were immaculate, the location perfect and the owners couldn't have been nicer. They advised us on places to visit & where to eat locally.
Their aim to keep it free from too many caravans is admirable. It keeps the "natural" feel to camping, with lots of peace & quiet. Don't all start going there though, I want to keep it a little haven of peace & undiscovered beauty!

This is indeed a quiet, pretty site and has plenty of wildlife to watch. There aren't any pubs within walking distance (closet are about 10mins drive) so it's best to be prepared.
The showers/loos are very clean and bright (fab shower, hot, plenty of places to put your stuff, shower curtain so you keep the rest of your stuff dry etc) - although I would imagine if the site is full they are a bit limited. Best spot is the little woodland area off the main field. Pitches are an OK size, but pitch 16 would be too small for anything other than a 2 man tent. The shop is well stocked and you can order your Sunday morning papers.
The owners are friendly and very helpful. Had a great time, would go again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We went in our motorhome and we were pitched in our own private bay almost. The pitch was quite dark with overhanging trees but that was ok for us - you could definitely hear animals in the wood and the owls hooting at night. The tents are edged around the field which is nice as it provides plenty of space to play.

There is only one shower each for ladies and gents but they are really good as they have a proper shower tray and plenty of room, shelves and hooks etc - worth the wait.

The play area is lovely reached by a couple of bridges. This site was reasonable - 15 a night which is cheap for Cornwall and it had some of the cleanest facilities we came across during our tour of the County. The washing machine was the cheapest out of all those I tried! That sounds like all I did was wash but you know what I mean! The kids were allowed to ride their bikes anywhere and you didn't have to leave until 12pm which is a positive bonus!

A small and friendly campsite in very beautiful surroundings (we could hear the owls hooting at night)

We were allocated a bit of an overgrown corner of the field for our tent, which was overhung by trees making it quite dark, and the grass was a bit too long. The children's play area was great fun for our two girls.

There is room for improvement with the toilets and showers. There was often a queue in the morning as only one shower for ladies and one for gents, and two toilets each, which really was not enough.

The Camel Trail is great for all the family and is worth driving to Bodmin with the bikes on the car. The Bodmin to Wadebidge section is beautiful.

What a lovely campsite, small, quiet and extremely pretty. The owners were very welcoming. We saw a squirrel, an owl and grasshoppers loved our tent! The only downfall was the traffic on the M5 trying to get down there, grrrrr!

Very pretty campsite. Owners freindly and helpfull. We'll certainly go again. And who knows -- we may be blessed once again with about two inches of rain in 48 hours. Who do I complain to about the weather?

A small quiet friendly site, tucked away in a deep valley on the edge of Bodmin moor. Access might be difficult if you have an extra long van or camper. Most pitches are gently sloping and there are some under trees. There are also about 10 chalets for rent. Only 1 male & 1 female shower, and 2 washbasins each, but given the size of this site that's probably a similar ratio to most other sites. The showers particularly are very good. All hot water is included in your price, and there are washing up & laundry facilities under cover. The reception/shop seems well stocked, with even chilled beer & wine available! The owners are friendly & helpful. If you crave peace & quiet in a woodland setting then this site comes highly recommended.

We have been visiting this site for the last thirteen years and hopefully will be going again this year. The site is beautiful, ideal for young families and couples, it`s quiet, peaceful, and there are squirrels! A lovely place to stay!!!
