 We took our new caravan here to check all was working ok as this site is only a ten minute drive from the storage place where we keep it and a forty minute drive from where we live.

We were very impressed with the site. It’s fairly small and very well set out in three terraces. The spacious pitches have a hard standing and a small area of grass. We were able to fit our caravan and awning on the hard standing and use the grass for sitting out to enjoy the warm sunshine and amazing views that we are very familiar with, but not from that height!

We particularly liked the washrooms in a unisex wooden hut and the attractive approach to it - a small garden type area with a drying line running along the length of each side.

We didn’t use the restaurant, but it was obviously very popular as the car park was usually busy. Check in for the site is in the restaurant. This was completed very swiftly by a friendly member of staff. We were not disturbed at all by any noise from the restaurant or car park and only noticed some road noise around 5pm on Friday.

We were able to walk from the site to the area around Kit Hill which has lots of paths and the most incredible views across Cornwall and Devon.

It’s at least a forty minute drive to the beaches recommended on the park’s website and considerably longer at weekends in the summer and in school holidays.

We definitely recommend this site, particularly as a stopover and we will be returning again later in the year.

 We are currently coming to the end of a pleasant week at Compton and I feel it needs a up to date review, the reviews on here are 5 years out of date and obviously a lot has changed.

The site has a restaurant/bar so first off when you travel along Florence road look for the Engine House as that is sign posted where Compton Park isn't.

The site has 3 tiers with gravel hard standings separated by grass and is quite high up so some nice views. There is some grass area for none electric tents but was mostly caravan/motor homes (one tent).

The toilet block is a 3 year old modern wooden structure with 4 x shower/ toilet/ sink cubicles and a separate toilet cubicle and pot washing station.

There is a waste shed with recycling bins and nearby a single water tap, for some reason the chemical waste is situated in the alley next to the restaurant rather than the toilet block.

The restaurant opens every day for breakfast/ lunch but apart from fri/sat( 8. 30pm) closes about teatime, we had a meal and it was nice, this is where you book in on arrival. There is a house on site where I assume the owners live.

Rate wise it was a very reasonable £17 per night BUT ehu was £4. 50 a night even so overall still a good rate these days.

Callington itself is a about 1. 5 miles away and has a large tesco/B&M and some shops. Possibly because it was out of school holidays there were no children on site and apart from a small playground next to the Engine House there isn't a lot for them.

It is a quiet country site although there are cars (and occasional visiting motorbikes) to the restaurant but its a hundred yards away so you don't really hear them. There are no lights on site so take a torch for loo visits.

Overall we enjoyed our week here and would recommend it-there are a lot of reviews on other sites which is good because I wouldn't have booked on the outdated ones on here

 There are lovely views from the campsite across Callington and beyond. The wardens are friendly and helpful and the on-site café seems very popular as it attracted a lot of customers, despite the poor (very wet) weather conditions during our stay.

That said however, if the campsite is to remain open all year, it is badly in need of a drainage system. The pitches were waterlogged during our stay and we had difficulty in pitching so that we could get out of the caravan without stepping into huge puddles. The drive onto the site is very rough and misleading for reception (which is in the café but not indicated), there needs to be a sign directing caravans to the pitching area and/or a layby area where caravans pull in, otherwise it is assumed (as we did) that you go up to the reception/café and then have the problem of manoeuvring round the café car park back to the pitching area.

There is a complete lack of privacy in the showers, you have to dress and undress in the area where there is one sink that is also for use of café customers using the toilets. The showers are push button every 10 - 15 seconds and at times completely stop and dribble out. The windows are obscure but not frosted and therefore anyone on the toilet or in the sink area is visible from the outside washing up area and food storage area behind the farm shop. Site badly in need of upgrading, facilities might have been acceptable 20 years ago but not in 2013. Will not use the site again unless upgraded, which is a shame as it is in a lovely area.

 My wife and I have just returned from a week's stay at Compton Park, and we've had a great time!

The site is fairly basic, but has all the facilities you need for a short break. It was surprisingly quiet for August, with only 5 or 6 other campers there which meant we had LOADS of space! The site warden seemed very friendly.

There is a large children's play area on site, and away from the camping field, so noisy children aren't a problem. There is a tea rooms and farm shop on site which sell all sorts of food, drinks and snacks to campers and non-campers.

The toilets/showers are shared with the on site tea rooms which I found a little strange. In the mens, there are 2 showers, 2 wc's and only 1 sink (all of which are spotlessly clean). There are no doors to the shower cubicles, just shower curtains.

There were a couple of instances during our stay where I was using the only sink to shave in or brush my teeth, and a tea room customer came in wanting to wash his hands before his meal to find me in my shorts and flip-flops with no shirt on using the only sink! It made me feel quite uncomfortable and I tried to be in and out as fast as possible!

There is a large Tesco less than a five minute drive from the site and a couple of pubs around the same distance, non that we found within walking distance though.

My main gripe is that there are 2 resident dogs that roam freely around the site.

Other than the dogs, the site is clean and has good facilities and a superb view over Callington. We also found the price very reasonable.

 Compton Park is a small, quite site. The facilities are shared with the cafe on site, campers are given a key code to access them out of hours. There are two showers and toilets for each sex, but only one sink. These were very clean and cleaned daily.

The site consist of a number of flat terraces, about 50% have electric hookup. There is a small children's play area in front of the cafe.

At the time of our visit the site was not very busy, only about six units stayed on the same four nights. It may get busier at weekends.

Our stay was very enjoyable, with great views to the south and west, but this would also make it very exposed if wind & rain were coming from that direction. Note that the ground is very hard and rock pegs are essential.

Although the site is in a quite location, there is a Tesco superstore less than a mile away in Callington.

A good location for visiting Plymouth & the Tamar valley.
