 We loved it, everything was great! We had everything we needed.

Only constructive criticism Id say is could of done with a vending machine for midnight snacks

 Great site. Quiet. Spacious plots. Friendly staff.

Clean toilet/shower block (water nice and hot).

Regular food vans with a nice variety of hot food. Beach is approx 15/20 minute walk away through the dunes.

The only downside was the poor WiFi signal (which was free).

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so did our dogs.

Were hoping to return next year.

 Excellent site. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff, well set out site with plenty of space on the pitches and in the facilities block.

They really had thought about everything you could need and any kids or dogs had plenty of safe space to stretch out. WiFi across the site a bit dreckly but much appreciated.

A 2 minute walk to the beach or the pub with some of the best coastal walking and a fairly regular bus right outside the site.

Pleasantly surprised to find food vans and local trades on site most days. P. S. The paella van and breakfast box were both incredible!

Reviewer: Monker 1 review from this member

 On arrival we were allocated our pitch which was on a slight slope I have had my van suspension lowered so could not use my levellers,

The lady in reception kindly reallocated us to another pitch which was perfect every one who passed said it was the best pitch on the site which I would agree with,

The site is well organised and the toilets and showers were always clean,

Can not recommend this site highly enough and will definitely return.

I have marked down the facilities I think the shop could be bigger

Reviewer: Julies 1 review from this member

 We loved this site, it was a 15 minute walk through the dunes and down some steps to a long stretch of sandy beach.

Cafes by the coastal footpath.

The site was very clean and well tended, Dog friendly, grass cut every day

Would come back again.

 Visited during Covid restrictions so facilities closed so score is only an assumption.

Operators friendly & helpful and had everything extremely well organised in the circumstances. We found the site in good condition; quiet & attractive with easy access from the road.

Pizza and fish & chips etc. Vans visit on various evenings in the week & possible to order breakfast croissants etc. From camp site shop.

Pub/restaurant is opposite site entrance although we didn't use it on this visit due to Covid.

Site is just 5/10 minutes walk from a seemingly endless sandy beach with the added advantage of the wonderful Jam Pot cafe nestled in the dunes.

Surfing if you want it and an easy walk (an hour) along the coastal footpath to Godrevy island / lighthouse (passing yet another good cafe in the dunes!).

We used bikes and reached Penzance / St Michaels Mount fairly easily using quiet roads & cycle lanes in the main.

Service bus to Hayle/St Ives is recommended (we took the open top bus!). This runs reasonably frequently & stops at the site entrance, saves all the hassle of parking and drops you in the middle of town.

Would definitely visit again.

 Deservedly very popular campsite - walking distance to the fantastic beaches (dog friendly and unfriendly), cafe, restaurant, pub and coastal walks. Close to lovely pick you own and farmshop as well as supermarkets and park & train to St Ives. Easy drive to the lizard, lands ends, penzance, etc.

The site is on a bit of a slope but nicely landscaped and reasonably sheltered. There was a mix of pitch size- ours was a good size.

Really good fish & chips van and pizzas ( prebooking best).

The washrooms were adequate but showers a little too hot for the children and water came in from neighbouring showers. There was a need for some dry shelves and mirrors for hair and make-up away from sinks too.

Overall great holiday.

Reviewer: Tidburyboy 14 reviews from this member

 Was looking for a site close to a dog friendly beach so we chose this one. Efficient and friendly booking in, but we ended up on a pitch that was somewhat smaller than the others - ie no room to sit out or park the car alongside the awning. We were told it was that last available pitch when booking, so advise you ask before booking if this in an issue.

Other than that, this is a well maintained and really well located site. Although quite busy, I never had to wait for a shower and there was always plenty of hot water in the clean and well maintained facilities.

===TV reception was fine (we were about halfway up the site) but there was poor/patchy mobile reception (O2 and EE) There was however excellent WiFi (complimentary too!) There are good supermarkets (and other shops etc) in nearby Hayle.

The site is very easily accessible for towing - I would suggest via the B3301 from Hayle rather than the Gwithian Road from Connor Downs. It's a little bit further (if travelling from the North) but the road is wider into Gwithian.

The big question. Yes, we would certainly go again. Loved it. (Marked down on VFM due our pitch size)
