 Very good site, friendly staff and very clean,

While not the cheapest site around you do get darn good facilities, showers are some of the best we have had in UK sites,

Well worth a visit and we will be coming back

 Lovely, great views, spacious, waste drains that are actually lower than the Motorhome,

Close proximity to StIves,

What is there to dislike!

Back again next year!

 Great site, lovely people, we will return!

Great views of the sea, good large pitches! Go for a serviced pitch as plenty of space!

Didnít visit the bar.

 Very nice, people friendly, it is a very simple site with everything you need.

The location is very strategical, to reach any interesting city and town in about 20 minutes.

 Closest campsite to town within a 5 minute walk.

Close to beaches, cafes, shops and excellent views!

Caravan was modern, clean and had plenty of facilities.

Handy laundry on site and friendly staff.

 Love the location so easy to get to each and coast path. The walk into town is steep but not long and the campsite has some great facilities. Nice reception plenty of information available

Most pitches have hard standing and electric although some not level.

Was a bit noisy near children's play area as some parents happy to send kids there 9am or 9pm.

Busy site in peak season, and pricey.

 Highly recommend this place really helpful staff.

Location is alright,

It has a time limit to leave and enter the site which is 07:00 to 23:00.

Facilities are really clean.

 Great location no question, our pitch was 9 or 19, middle row at the end near the facilities. We had a fully serviced pitch, and free fast WiFi so happy with that.

I thought the pitches at the front only for small vans was very thoughtful, our view was a good one.


Two Dogs for Three nights £22 ouch

Most shower heads were dirty and blocked

Shower cubicles were tiny

For safety, stepping out of a shower cubicle onto the normal floor with wet feet was lethal, pls take extreme care, I notified the site.

Overall a great site in a great place, we enjoyed it.

 Expensive but weíd definitely return!

We stayed on pitch 14 which is a hard standing in the 2nd row back from the front with great sea views. Not the biggest pitch there but we were able to set up our caravan and awning. We have a smaller caravan, an awning and 2 bedroom annexes for the children. On this occasion we could only put up one of them. There were other pitches with more space that were more level, but it wasnít a problem on this occasion using just the one pod so we were perfectly happy. We needed the site provided blocks on the pitch and used our own as well to get level.

We paid for the kids to use the pool one rainy afternoon (£3 per swimmer) while we sat in the attached bar area at the Garrack Hotel. The pool is not huge but the area is well laid out we were able to sit right next to the water while the children swam.

We walked into St Ives every day and although the hill is very steep, it is manageable. We walked it in torrential rain and blazing sunshine. We considered taking bikes but Iím glad that we didnít bother!

The site facilities were well looked after and generally we found the site very peaceful. The kids made friends at the play area and spent lots of time there. We walked from the site along the coastal path to west beach one evening. This didnít take long and was a more gentle stroll back to site than the road walk.

We found that the approach to the site was absolutely fine following the site directions - just donít make a wrong turn and find yourself in the town centre if youíre towing - youíll be stuck!

St Ives was very busy in the evenings and I would recommend booking a table if you want to eat between 6 and 8 in school holidays. On our first evening we couldnít find anywhere before about 8. 45. There is a shop not far from the site that sells essentials. We also used the co op in St Ives and carried essentials back up to the site. We drove to a co op and also Tesco once while we were away. We never found a particularly close to site large shop but we didnít really look too hard!

We were lucky with only 2 rainy days in our week away. We loved the site and St Ives and hope to return in a few years time.

 Location is everything! You're basically in St. Ives with wonderful views from the campsite and a short walk to the beaches and centre (very steep walk back!).

Had a grass pitch with electric, shared tap and a decent view. £41 per night for two adults. Obviously very expensive and much more than any other site we stayed at over two weeks in the south west.

Prices go up further in the summer holidays. If you want a space on the terraces with the best views and handy for the facilities you will need to book a long way in advance, probably the previous year if you're booking ahead for a busy period.

There is a mix of outfits and people staying at Ayr. One night was disturbed for a few hours late on by a drunken group of campers falling out with each other, shouting, screaming and swearing. Nice.

We last stayed here twelve years ago and since then the site has expanded. Twelve years ago, we thought the facilities were superb, but now just one block is really not adequate; there aren't enough showers, loos or sinks. You have quite trek to the loo from many pitches. We've stayed in many sites with much better facilities for less money.

One of these new loo cassette cleaning machines has been installed at £3 a go. Didn't use it myself but was interested to note that a very smart site near Glastonbury only charged £2 for the same machine.

Ayr Holiday Park has a captive audience who simply want to be as close to St. Ives as possible and accordingly they can charge higher fees and more for services knowing that punters will return. A bit cynical and didn't really leave me with a good feeling about the place.
