 Lovely site. Nice toilet/shower block old one is still there too. Nice view of sea. Typical cornish roads to get to it.

Polperro is a stroll down hill. Very pretty.

We had a caravan no hook up just using solar. They do have hook ups.

We will return

Thank you Sadie & Dan

 This is one of my favourite campsites.

Facilities upgraded since our last visit but wow. Four great wet rooms with showers to die for.

Family run and very friendly.

Relaxed setup and views of the sea from main field.

We are quite fit but the walk back from Polperro is quite steep and some would struggle.

Polperro is lovely with challenges walks if you want and plenty of cafes and pubs.

 Dont think I would return

Toilet block is too small for amount of people using it no separate toilets I also had no hot water on 4 occasions out of 6.

The walk down to polperro is also hazardous very steep in places and difficult to navigate when vehicles passing.

On a final note we never saw the owners once and as for advertising eggs we never saw any all week.

Final verdict a big no!

 Booked a non-electric pitch here for one night to explore Polperro. Liked the site & location so much we stayed for another night!

The new toilet/shower block has some of the best showers weve seen on any campsite!

Its a steep walk down to Polperro, we wimped out at the walk back & paid 5 for a taxi back from the pub - money well spent!

 Lovely small site within walking distance of Polperro, the walk back up the hill is challenging but well worth it.

The site overlooks the sea and is a very quiet site. No light pollution so if you like stargazing it's a gem of a site.

Good dog walking area.

The only downside we would say is there is only one men's loo, but if you are ok waiting then that's no problem.

We would definitely return and highly recommend to others.

 Stopped off for a night on way to Coverack. The fields are well kept. The view of the sea is idyllic. The walk down to Polperro was simple, although the walk back was more difficult due to the very steep hill! The toilets and shower are the worst we've ever seen.

We didn't risk a shower as the tray was full of black hair. The sink was so small with nowhere to put wash things, we had told hold each others bags. While we were washing the husband of another camper had to use the ladies shower as there was no hot water in the gents.

Last but not least the chemical waste area was next to the ladies and the stench was disgusting. Such a shame as the site itself is perfect.

 What a lovely little campsite with amazing views of the sea. The campsite is basic, shower, toilets and one sink for washing up but there are only two fields for camping on so it's fine. The owners were lovely and very helpful and the facilities and site were very clean.

The walk into Polperro is down a steep lane and the walk back up the hill is a good workout, but it's cheaper to camp for the night, than to pay for parking in the village.

I wish I could have stayed longer!

 Having read lots of the reviews before picking this site, I would suggest you do the same. Very accurate in what they say. Lovely views on a very basic site. One shower for men and one for women, only a dozen other campers on site at our visit and never a queue for them.

The owners are so nice.

Access with a motor home (6mtr) is very tight so stock up well before arrival.

John met us at Pelynt Church and guided us down a single track lane for 2 miles, thanks for that.

Its a steep down hill walk to Polperro (1 mile) we did walk back on each occasion (I am 64 and of ok health) just took our time.

Also walked to Looe and got the bus back.

Its an absolute Must for Cornwall.

 Found this site by accident when we left a site for being far too noisy. What a great find! Facilities were basic but very clean. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. There were great views and a lovely dog walk around the adjoining field. The only thing that spoilt it was the amount of seasonal caravans around the edge blocking the best views but apart from that I would definitely return. Great value for money and close to Polperro town.

 We chose this site on spec at the start of our tour of Cornwall. They were very helpful on the phone and as we were not due to arrive until later in the evening, they told us to head to our pitch and they would be over in the morning for the fees, and they were at 08:00 on a Sunday.

The site served its purpose for us perfectly and we decided to stay two nights in the end. It is fairly basic but has everything needed for a holiday.

The facilities consist of two toilets and one shower for the ladies and one toilet, urinals and one shower for the mens. There were also three portaloos in case the site got busier. There is also a wash up room with one sink.

We never had a problem with hot water and this was plentiful for both showering and washing up.

The facilities are not all singing and all dancing, but they were very clean, functional and every time I used them they served their purpose perfectly. The shower may not have been the most powerful, but it got me wet, it got me clean and the same for the mens. There was always handwash by the sinks, as in the mens too and there was washing up liquid supplied.

Plenty of fresh water taps dotted around the site and they operate recycling of glass, paper, tins, etc.

The first field is for camping and is more sheltered and offers plenty of space for the kids to play, run around, etc.

The second field has statics and seasonals all around the edges with the occasional space for tourers, motorhomes to use them. These have electric hookup and offer the better views of polperro.

No play park or anything for the kids, but who needs that when you have huge fields.

The dog walk field is huge, I ran the perimeter twice and the distance was 1. 3 miles. Perfect for any pooch.

The site is really well located for Polperro and is just a 15/20 minute walk down the rather steep hill. Polperro is wonderful with so many gallery type shops, gift shops, pubs and restaurants. We had a pint in the Blue Peter and they offer great real ales as well as the usual wines and lagers, etc.

We did not eat in any pubs or restaurants but the choices on offer looking at the menus was enough for all tastes and budgets.

The harbour is lovely and the walks along the coastal path can take you for miles.

The walk back to the site is very steep but not too bad, although I did see a couple of others getting cabs back if required.

Looe is fairly close which is gorgeous seaside town, plus all of the local Cornish attractions.

Overall, very helpful owners, very reasonably priced at 15 for two adults, one 15 year old, a dog, campervan and electric hookup.

Yes we would come back if in the area.
