 Great little site. When I arrived I explained that we needed to leave a day earlier than booked and they insisted we didn't pay for that last night and it didn't matter what time we left the day before as our pitch wasn't needed.

Very flat site.

2 shower/toilet blocks - always immaculate.

5 minute walk to a great beach with lots of pop up food wagons. Bar, shelters at one end, then very quiet at the other end.

Short walk to Britannia Inn which had lovely food - best to book in advance. Par market. Nothing to write home about.

There are some nice gardens Pinetum Gardens, just up the road worth a visit and of cause ideal location for visiting the Eden Project

 What a gem of a site this is. Easy access off the A390 St. Austell road via the roundabout with The Britannia Inn next to it, the A3082, then past shops and industrial area then right onto Cypress Avenue and the site is on the right.

Carolyn Bay Camping Park really has something for everyone. It is in an excellent location with a lot to do in the area and on site and is extremely well run by the family that own it.

There are a variety of pitches to choose from which you do at the time of booking and they are all fairly spacious and well laid out although on most you will need levelling blocks.

The site was kept clean at all times and has 3 facilities blocks, 2 swimming pools (one heated), an on-site shop, a courtyard area, crazy golf course and a play area for the children which includes a large ship.

There is a Motorhome Waste Point for Motorhome owners who use them at the top of the site. There are also plenty of water/waste points and rubbish/recycling bins dotted around the site.

The aforementioned Britannia Inn has an excellent menu and we ate there twice. Also there is a very good coffee and lunch bar called AJís not far away. Both will take you about 10/15 mins walk.

Charlestown is just under a 2 mile walk away and is well worth a visit and there are bus stops nearby that can take you to Fowey, Mevagissy and St Austell. There is a beach about 10 mins walk away but it should be noted it has a steep access.

We highly recommend this site and will definitely be visiting again in the near future.

 Great site. Very clean grounds and facilities. Caters for everyone. Large supermarkets nearby.

Would definitely go back. Large field for walking dogs.

Lovely play areas for children, super outdoor pools and a crazy golf area.

I was really sorry that our holiday had to end, we really enjoyed our stay.

 Canít rate this site highly enough. We had a fully serviced pitch and it was huge. Plenty of room for our motorhome & awning with room for the kids to play and be away from neighbouring pitches.

The facilities are kept in superb condition including the swimming pool and surrounding area. 2 pools plus a splash pool for very young children make this site perfect for families with children of all ages. Thereís a laundry which we used to dry towels £1. 50 for 30 minutes dried 6 towels.

10 minute walk to a great beach with a bar, coffee shop and water sports. The Britannia pub is also a 10 minute walk with a great menu and garden for kids to play.

The campsite is run extremely well by a fantastic couple who are only too happy to help with any questions including where to go and things to do.

We took bikes however it was quite hilly to get to most nearby places with children (10 & 14)

The coastal paths are great, Charlestown is less than 2 miles and weíll worth the walk.

Thereís a bus stop right outside the campsite making it easy to visit Fowey, Mevagissy and even Newquay.

 This campsite is the perfect place for visiting places in cornwall

The staff are very helpful and friendly

The shop has most things you need including fresh meats ie bacon sausages plus fresh bread.

The pitches are a very good size.

Plenty for young children good open spaces and only 10 minute walk to beach

 This site sorted us down to the ground. The location is excellent with a bus stop at the entrance for Fowey and a small 15 minute walk for the other bus routes.

We received a nice welcome from the owners. The pitches are very large ours had a little bit of hard standing for our van.

The pool was a bonus and we spent sometime in there. The shop is very well stocked.

Al the facilities are very clean and kept to a high standard. Everyone was very friendly and we would recommend this site.

Reviewer: Ironned 57 reviews from this member

 Would imagine this site is very lively indeed in high season, but it was a pleasant and peaceful place to be in a rainy May week. Pitches closer to the loo blocks are more sheltered, we were in a more open area, and it is generally very spacious.

There are some beautiful grass pitches on the hill but they were not in use when we visited.

The location is great - literally 5 mins walk from the beach although it is up a hill; big Tesco 10 mins drive away and a food hall and market plus a kids attraction and even a branch of the Range within walking distance. Itís also only about 15 mins from the Eden Project.

One pool was in use but the driving rain put me off! Thereís a nice covered courtyard area next to the pool which is a good place to take your food and drink if you need shelter or shade; apparently there is entertainment in this area in high season too.

Thereís a small shop which we didnít use and ample loo and shower facilities which were spotlessly clean.

We got a friendly welcome and staff were round and about keeping the bins tidy despite three atrocious weather. We had hard standing on our pitch, which we used as our Ďporchí although interestingly the grass didnít get at all muddy and we were able to walk around the site in trainers throughout.

 Good size pitches, plenty of space for tent, gazebo, car etc.

Toilet/shower blocks small, but family room available.

Only negative was that some of the lights in the toilet area go out at 11pm, so had to take a light in order see after 11pm.
