 We have a Pennine folding camper. Approach is good, sleeping policemen to control speed, pass the mobile homes to the reception. To get to the camping pitches you drive through a caravan storage area, slightly untidy. We were pitched in field C. We delayed our holiday by a day because of storm Francis and I did ask reception if there was any protection from the wind and was told there was, with high hedges around the perimeter.

On arrival we found we had been pitched on a slope which wasn't ideal and were told that the previous day two tents had blown away. In fact the field was very exposed to wind and we sustained some damage to our awning poles despite using storm straps and had sleepless nights.

There were three toilets and two showers plus two hand sinks for B, C and Meadow fields, queuing was common and the fields were nowhere near full capacity. When people were cleaning teeth etc there was nowhere to wash your hands after using the toilet so an extra sink for this purpose is really needed.

The hand dryers did not work in the men's or ladies at any time. However the showers were a good, warm and steady temperature which didn't change no matter the time of day. There was also two washing up sinks in this block with ample hot water. There is a wet suit wash area and chemical disposal area and plenty of fresh water points.

There is another toilet block near the Fully Serviced areas, this had 3 showers and 4 toilets I believe, the hand dryers worked and it looked to have heating.

When we had heavy rain the field became very muddy, the gravel road stopped at the entrance to C field. A tent oposite us was forced to move pitch due to flooding around it.

There are lovely walks from the site especially around Peevor mine. It is close to the A30, convenient but it is possible to hear background road noise. An Aldi supermarket is close by (not walking distance) and a good pub with lovely food is also nearby. There is also an on site club but we didn't eat there so can't comment.

There is a children's play area by the mobile homes but nothing nearer the camping fields, however there is plenty of room for children to play.

The site is ok. The weather didn't help but we felt there were too many niggles for us to return here.

Reviewer: Fingleflanger 2 reviews from this member

 A well organised, quiet, clean, tidy and friendly site. This is a large campsite with most of what you might expect.

Very clean toilets and showers.

Our children enjoyed the park. We had a meal in the restaurant - unfortunately it took 50mins for our food to arrive and mine was like a child's portion so that wasn't the best.

Sadly we ended up having to leave early due to storm elena but know we would have enjoyed our full time here.

 Well kept clean campsite, very friendly staff, shop very basic better if sold news papers as well.

Resturant very reasonable with takeaway food.

Wifi room for kids would be good if this could extend across the whole campsite.

Reviewer: Hamdie 1 review from this member

 We are absolute beginners to camping and if honest I thought we were more a Hotel kind of couple, however we wanted to explore Cornwall and as this was our first ever stay camping seemed a good option to add to our adventure. We discovered Globe Vale online and was drawn to the location and ratings, called and spoke to a very helpful lady and the next thing we are all booked.

Globe Vale was perfect, a complete get away from it all, beautiful, immaculate, well kept site, it had everything we needed and more. The facilities was spotless and I'm fussy and like my home comforts. It was tranquil and relaxing, a great set up. The bar/restaurant looked nice however we didn't visit, plenty of tourist information and a small shop on site.

They have thought of everything. As for the location, perfect we were remote enough to enjoy the beautiful views, sunrises, sunsets and feel totally away from it all but Aldi and Tesco was within 5 minutes drive to stock up and a farm butchers 2 minutes away.

Beautiful beaches of Portreath and the Cornish oven for a proper Cornish pasty within 10 minutes drive. Newquay, Falmouth, St Ives and Lands end all with in good reach to explore.

Overall 10 out of 10 we will definitely return to the beautiful Globe Vale, highly recommended.

Reviewer: Gransby 1 review from this member

 Exceptionally good site all the facilities are kept warm and spotlessly clean. The staff are helpful and friendly, there is a large and well fenced dog run which our playful lurcher really enjoyed. When we visited it was misty and very windy but in good weather the views will be gorgeous. We will certainly visit again.

Reviewer: Camperjones 1 review from this member

 Had a lovely week at this campsite. The weather was great. The campsite was very well laid out with lines on grass to outline your pitch. Facilities were clean and modern. Showers were free, no putting coins or tokens into a meter. !

The staff were very friendly and relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble. Looking forward to visiting this site again. Well done Globe Vale.

Thanks for a great week.

Reviewer: HeyshamWolf 2 reviews from this member

 This is a fantastic site. Everything was spotlessly clean and all modern facilities. Short drive to Porthtowan beach which we visited often and learnt to surf and body board. The pub is a great bonus as it was reasonably priced for food if you don't want to cook. Wetsuit washing area is always a bonus. We had two 14 year old boys with us and they were happy playing pool in the pub or on the games field. Great site and would definitely return.

 Just had 2 weeks on a hardstand (huge) pitch. The pitch itself was brilliant, the site is spotless and the staff are very friendly, The site location is great, we will definitely be returning next year.

Reviewer: Ken-redditch 1 review from this member

 Second time I have stayed here.

Toilets an showers were well maintained, heated and very clean.

Had a meal in the on site pub. Food was very nice and fair value or money.

This site is well positioned for sight seeing both north and south coast. Very close to the A30

This is not a stay on site sort of camp site. Small play park for the kids but that's all.

The owners and camp site staff very friendly.

Reviewer: Jerry B 1 review from this member

 As always a lovely quiet location run by exceedingly nice people! Have stayed here 3 or 4 times now at different times of the year and have never been disappointed. The facilities are excellent and the variety of pitch types should meet even the most discerning of tourists needs. Easy to reach from A30 and has good links to Falmouth, Newquay and Truro. All in all a good place to use as a base for exploring or just to relax and recharge the batteries!
