Very enjoyable stay. We had lovely weather but as the toilet/showers are only cleaned once a day they were a bit sandy after people came off the beach also, the toiled blocks were a bit dated. We would stay again. We found that we could access the north, South and West coast with ease from the site.

Camp site is well positioned for the beaches of St Ives and a regular bus service into town picks up from just outside camp.

Campsite was really busy. We were camping in the higher field. Almost sea view, but quite windy. Unluckily as it was busy and we had a lot of rain (all of July's in 24 hours)! Meant the toilets and showers were not always terribly clean. I think they were only cleaned once day which given how busy and weather was probably not enough and my other half said the men's loos frequently missed loo paper.

Useful little shop and there is a bar and take away although we didn't use.

Campsite has a quiet after 11 policy but a very noisy caravan group just on the other hedge (there were 18) disregarded this so had to complain.

All in all to be honest a little disappointing site.

Spacious site layout. Grass well maintained nice design of park.

Although not spacious the showers were very clean as were all the facilities - a mop and bucket would have been handy for those rainy muddy days.

The Hayloft Bar has a cosy warm atmosphere with reasonable prices and friendly staff, we enjoyed a few drinks there.

Owners and staff very helpful and friendly.

Access to the site for a short distance is narrow however on our departure (first day of school holidays) staff offered to check that no vehicles were coming in as we were leaving.

Quite close to St Ives and Penzance there was so much to do we will look forward to a return visit to this site.

Not having visited the area before we were really unsure as to where to stay: we wanted a rural site with a 'dark sky' and views but didn't fancy being stranded in a wet field (even if we could have had a campfire!) We opted for Higher Penderleath and were really glad we did. Just too far to walk into St Ives but with a really handy bus service from the campsite into town - last bus back in high season is 11. 20pm! Also a pub: we know some camping purists are happy to hike a mile or so for a pint (or just to get in out of the rain) but these are definitely not pedestrian-friendly roads. Although the bar on Higher Penderleath is a 'campsite bar', it's small and cosy and a great place for a game of dominoes. It really does the job when you just haven't got the energy to go out - or fancy a nightcap after your bbq. Plus the food is good - funnily enough the best scampi I've ever tasted. Showers and toilets fine -

Possibly a little busy at peak times and with only one block the walk from the tents in the top field is a bit of a stretch. Having said that the little shop on site stocks buckets with lids! The site itself is really very attractive with a choice of generous pitches: top field pitches have the best views but the most wind. The ground is well drained short grass. No gripes at all really except possibly the electricity question: we didn't have hook-up but at 30 per night we felt that a plug or two in the communal areas would be nice. 50p in the ladies for the hair dryer too was a bit steep: on all 3 occasions I used it I didn't use anything like 50p worth.

They offer phone charging but that's 1 and you have to abandon your phone in the office for half a day or so. All in all however, we really enjoyed our stay and the site was obviously much loved and well cared for. We would definitely stay again and recommend it as an ideal spot for exploring the area and visiting St Ives.

Visited site in July, very friendly and welcoming. Chris, Mandy, Lou, Em and Tom all made me feel welcome. Good facilities, clean and tidy. Well kept fields. Toilet block and showers very clean. Bar and food excellent. Will visit again! 10/10 Fantastic service, great location which is good for touring st ives and area.

WOW. What can I say about this campsite!? Just blew our minds! Lovely owners Chris and Mandy, their son and their staff were just amazing. The facilities were great. It has a coffee shop, a games room, a pub with provides a takeaway service and restaurant food. The shop they have is well stocked of everything you need. They have a bus service that runs 7 times a day. ( you catch it from the bottom of the campsite) they have a launderette and station to wash your dirty dishes. Toilets and shower blocks are spotless! Will definitely be going again next year and the year after that and the year after that!
