 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.

Weíre hoping to return next year.

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)

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 109 reviews from this member

 This is a very well maintained site. The pitches are pleasantly divided up with hedges giving some shelter and privacy. The grass is well kept too and the ground slopes gently across most of the site. Some pitches slope more than others, and some pitches are larger than others, but generally they're all pretty good. The wash block is quite open, and at first the showers may appear draughty, but the water is very hot and in the summer the airy feel is very welcome.

The owners are great, welcoming and helpful. The toilets/ washrooms are clean, the shop well stocked and its all very well organised.

There is a foot path from the top of the site leading down to the beach (about 10 minutes) and a pub at the entrance (although this was closed for refurbishment during our visit) The location is spot on for accessing the coast path North or trips to St Ives.

Gwithian Farm does therefore attract a certain type of camper. I have never seen so many mansion size tents and expensive new camper vans in one place. We even found one couple had placed potted plants either side of the steps into their caravan!

As a result, the atmosphere was somewhat lacking and most campers were quietly tucked up for the night by 10:00pm. So you'll not find yourself sat around a communal camp fire until the small hours, making new friends and generally pitching in with everyone else. Depends what you want, and most people holiday making here liked it just the way it is!

Reviewer: Lee1985 4 reviews from this member

 This was our first time in the area and we were impressed as we drove down the hill towards Gwithian. The view was beautiful. Upon arrival on the reception was unmissable as we drove in.

We were early but were allowed on our pitch as the previous campers had left already. The people at the site were very friendly. The gave us a map of the site with rules and guides.

There is also a small shop with all the necessities, which we found useful throughout the week. We easily found our pitch and set up. The electric hook up was close by and as you would expect. The bathroom block was impressive. Clearly a lot of effort has been put into this, and for me it decides how good a campsite is.

Plenty of showers, toilets, washing up sinks, washing machines, even a wet suit wash. They are kept very clean too. I cannot fault this site and would recommend it to anyone. In fact, I already have!

The local pub was closed for a week for a refurbishment but that will clearly benefit anyone reading this review who may be going in the near future. Go to Gwithian Farm, have a great time and a great holiday!
