 An excellent site in every way. Lots of space and pitch where you like.

Plenty of toilets and showers, hot water for washing up and a washing machine and tumble dryer. What more could you ask for?

Although a little remote if on foot, as we were, it is easy enough to find. A big bonus is the community shop in Blisland only about a mile away which is open morning sand afternoons and serves coffee (very generous).

Reception was closed while we were there so we can't rate customer service but that didn't matter.

 We love this campsite. The location is amazing - on the roof of Cornwall.

Facilities are well designed, and regularly cleaned and maintained. Fridge/freezer/washing machine combo makes for a a high degree of forward planning.

The weather can be really rough, but as the owner farmers cheerily say, "well, you are on the moor". Sometimes you'll make your way off the moor to discover everyone basking in sunshine.

Campers are left to their own devices, although you can buy firewood/kindling, sausages & lamb, several other home cooked ready-meal options, plus a food shack serving at weekends and a couple of nights in the week when we were there.

We have camped here on and off for the last ten years, can't recommend highly enough.

 Lovely secluded spot. Right on the Moor.

Quiet. Top notch facilities. Two pubs within three miles, one with cracking real ales, the other does great food.

In each village there is a community shop for all your essentials should you need anything.

Next time in Cornwall I'll definitely stay there again.

 Love Love Love this place!

Safe, peaceful, great for kids and families. Facilities are spot on, toilets clean, showers were great (lots of space which is useful if trying to wash small children!)

Onsite food was very good too. Will be returning.

Only draw back was that kids struggled to turn the taps on in the toilets - they were quite stiff press taps - but this is minor compared to the rest!

 Campsite was clean and quiet at night. Plenty of space and good facilities.

Paths got a little muddy in the heavy rain. Having the goal posts was brilliant idea, used every day!

Having the option to buy a breakfast bap was great.

 A peaceful relaxing basic tent only site, but the essentials like hot clean showers and clean toilets (with music)and good tasting fresh water are there. There are 3 yurts for hire Sited on the edge of Bodmin moor its ideally situated for walks on this interesting upland area.

There are no rules other than respect for the countryside, arrive pitch up where you like on this spacious site, pay in evening at farmhouse. Set a fire and enjoy the evening. If it's clear the night sky is amazing because of low light pollution.

There is a bridge over the De Lank river about a mile away which is a nice place to picnic and safe for kids (and adults)to have a splash about.

There's a play area for kids with swings and a barn too. There's a nice farm walk around the area. They are good on recycling so make the effort to recycle everything. There are lockers to charge a phone but reception is intermittent as its quite rural here.

There's a washing machine, dryer and freezer. You can buy some organic meat from the farmhouse for your BBQ.

There is The Old Inn at St Breward 2. 5 miles, I had a drink there but didn't eat. Meals 10 - 18. There is the well stocked St Breward Stores here too.

The only negative is that there is a dog kennel half a mile away not part of the farm, so from time to time you can hear dogs barking if the wind is in the right direction, not really a problem but worth mentioning.

If you like a clubhouse, entertainment, lots of noise, waits for the shower, guy rope to guy rope camping, lots of rules and regulations camping this is not the place for you.

I give this 10 stars as it is one of my favourite sites and will visit again in September. It cost 20 a night for 2 people.

 Lovely camp, lots of room, free showers. Only negative is that the water points was very overgrown.

I didn't have my children with me this time, but facilities looked good for them.

We will be back! Thoroughly recommended

 Stayed in a Yurt for the weekend - our first time that we have upgraded to glamping! Fantastic, quirky, roomy, private well equipped accommodation with log burner to top it off.

Site had a play area for children, excellent clean shower and toilet facilities. We interacted with farm dogs, cats, geese and sheep - kids loved it.

There is also a 3 mile circular walk you can do from the site out on to the moor with great scenery. The one criticism I do have is that there is a play barn with badminton and table tennis but the corner of it seems to be used a dog toilet?

If we had not come across this would probably have given more out of 10.

 A great campsite set on the gorgeous Bodmin Moor.

Wonderful entertainment of free roaming chickens and turkeys.

Lovely clean toilets and showers.

We loved being able to have real fires and just be left to our own devices!

The children had a great time exploring the farm and it felt a safe environment to give them some freedom.

There was plenty to do in the surrounding area including body boarding on the De-Lank river at Delphi Bridge.

 We recently spent a lovely week in the Bunkhouse at Penquite Farm whilst other family members were camping in Penquite camp site.

The Bunkhouse was very comfortable, clean, spacious with all the home comforts. It was warm with plenty of heaters and a log burner, hot water, shower and a fully equipped kitchen. The owners were very friendly and helpful if we needed anything.

The campsite was relaxing, peaceful and not overcrowded. Our grandchildren enjoyed camping there. It is the third year they have been. They love the animals - chickens, ducks and turkeys roaming free. There was plenty of space for the grandchildren to play and a play barn with table tennis, badminton and footballs.

Our family often popped in to see us in the bunkhouse for a cup of tea and enjoyed the pool table and television.

Overall a very relaxing, enjoyable holiday.
