 Can only say a very good quality site

Facilities great

Site level

Pitches large

Staff very good

Only bad thing whilst we holidayed there was the weather, lots of rain but also lots of sun. So still had a great holiday

Used the local bus service with seniors bus pass which was another bonus

Nice walk through the woods to the local village, bit muddy as used by lots of cyclists so wear good shoes and not flipflops as I did, had to scrub feet before getting back into van

All in all would return as real value for money.

 We just love Cornwall and absolutely loved the site

it had outstanding views, lovely club site, very friendly staff, great food and when we come again ( because we will) we will bring our daughters, boyfriends and my dog Pippa.

We recently converted a transit van in to a camper and it was our first outing.

 Returned from a holiday in our folding camper.

Stayed on pitch 8, I would recommend this pitch and those clisely around, away from the road and sheltered by the high riverbank.

Everything you need on site, youngest (8) loved the park and the site itself feels very safe and secure.

Great looks and showers cleaned several times a day.

Lively food vans on site in the evening and coffee bar in the morning.

Easy flat 1 mile walk to beach by the river and through the woods to Pentewan.

Site owners and wardens very friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended

 Nice level site with well-marked pitches. Delightful, friendly staff. All the facilities were spotlessly clean and it is obvious that the ablutions block was cleaned several times a day.

There was a complete absence of litter. Everything was neat and tidy and carefully thought out for the convenience of guests.

The site is close to a busy road so there is some traffic noise during the day but we had no difficulty in sleeping at night.

There were lots of children during our stay and they all played together very happily.

Unfortunately, too many parents allowed their children to ride their bikes on the roads on the site which made life difficult for even the most careful of drivers. I fear that one day there may be a serious accident.

 We visited in our new van for it's first run with Carole's sister in the awning. We booked on the back of reviews on here. I am glad that we did and agree with all the great reviews on here.

Lovely, well run and laid out site, immaculate showers and toilets. Site shop adequate for daily essentials but supermarkets in St Austell nearby. Excellent value for money. Really enjoyed my stay at this peaceful, restful site.

 We had a fabulous 2 weeks at Little Winnick. The pitches are level and the grass was cut frequently. The showers, toilets and washing up facilities were always clean and tidy. The bath in the family bathroom was a real bonus for our 18 month old daughter. The staff were all friendly and helpful too.

Being right on the cycle trail was really handy and meant we didn't have to use the car except when we wanted to go further afield. We cycled to Mevagissy, Charlestown and the lost gardens of Heligan and also to the supermarket in St Austell. You can walk to the beach and pub and cafes in Pentewan and into the woodland (Kings wood?). Also lovely walks along the coast from Pentewan.

 Excellent friendly site. Spacious level, hardstanding pitch. Showers and toilets spotless. Excellent dog walking area. All staff were friendly and helpful. Value for money is exceptional. Looking forward to visiting again.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

 Just back from a great week at Little Winnick. The site is in a good location - it took us about 30 minutes to walk to Pentewan along the cycle trail, and it's only a short drive to St Austell for supermarkets and shops. There is also a small shop at the filling station in Pentewan. The site shop also sells essentials - and cakes, sweets and ice cream - and also has plenty of leaflets for local attractions and information maps for most of Cornwall. Although there is a fair amount of traffic along the road, it didn't bother us, even though we live on a quiet street.

Toilets and showers always clean and although the shower is push button and the button has to be pressed quite frequently, the water pressure was good and there was plenty of hot water. Showers are free and there are two free hairdryers in the ladies. The ladies toilet cubicles also have sinks. There is a family bathroom with a bath.

The site staff (owner Richard and wardens Mike and Carol) are friendly and very helpful. We phoned on the Friday to ask if we could arrive a night early - Carol and Mike explained how wet the site was but Mike went to look at the grass pitches and they rang us back to say there were a couple of areas we could use so we were good to go. Throughout our stay all 3 (Heidi was away visiting family) were helpful and always willing to give ideas and information.

The Ship Inn in Pentewan is excellent, with bingo nights, quiz nights etc, even out of season, and friendly welcoming staff. The Piskey Cove cafe in Pentewan is also good. We walked to Mevagissey along the Coast Path - took about 1. 5 hours, and also in the other direction to Charlestown (about 4 hours). Truro is about 30 minutes drive and Lands End about 1. 5 hours drive.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again. Good price too - we paid 108 for six nights for 2 adults and an 11 year old, on a grass electric pitch.

 This was our second visit here and it was just as good as the first. The site is flat and beautifully kept with laid out numbered pitches and ample water points and bins around the site. The facilities are almost new and of very high specifications and large enough even if the camp is full, I never had to queue and there was usually a choice of showers. Situated next to a road means there is some traffic noise but for a townie like me it was not intrusive and like the rest of Cornwall it seemed to close down after 11pm. St Austell is only 5 minutes drive and has everything you need and the Eden project is close too. The price was ridiculous 10 per night for 2 people and tent and 7 nights for the price of 5, that's 50 for the week. The wifi was brilliant just as fast as at home and cost 15 for the week. We shall return anytime we go to Cornwall, I just hope it doesn't get too crowded as people find out about it.
