Date of Visit: May 2024 Unit:  Tent
Nights stayed: 6 Travelling as:  Family with young children
Reviewer: Ijw333 1 review from this member

 Friendly welcome and well cut grass.

As others have said, lots of signs and lots of rules - sadly important ones about dogs off leads and quiet between 10. 30pm - 8am poorly enforced.

Child play area is just two swings and no wifi as advertised.

Limited washing and toilet facilities, sloping pitches.

Sadly seagulls attacked ours and other tents so our trip to Polruan and surrounding area cut to just 3 out of 6 nights. No refund or goodwill gesture offered for nights we couldn’t use.

Definitely seek out alternative sites with flatter pitches, facilities as advertised and less rules.

 We loved the location and the view. We liked and appreciated the help of the owners.

We weren't so keen on the facilities as they were cold and for the price per night charged we felt the heating should have gone on.

Our biggest gripe was the signage which is everywhere. It is not possible to truly relax whilst worrying about breaking the rule on one of the many "Don't do that" signs. It felt like we were being micro managed all the time.

At thirty something pound per night, out of season, we expected more and were left disappointed.

 We had a very warm welcome from Liz & Ray who were on hand to help and give local advice of places to visit.

Lovely location and spotlessly clean facilities.

10 minute walk to a pub & a water taxi to take you to Fowey. Lots of interesting things to do in the area.

The campsite is very peaceful and has the best views.

 If you are trekking the SWCP then don’t miss the opportunity to stay at this campsite.

The owner Ray is incredibly helpful for trekkers,

The facilities are spotlessly clean,

There is a microwave and laundry room with a comfy chair and table and the site is quiet so you get a good nights sleep.

Reviewer: Deb7170 11 reviews from this member

 Good location, amazing views and well maintained. However, almost all pitches were very sloped - had to double up on ramps to get close to level.

Showers were immaculately clean but water was cold quite often (we mentioned it to the owner and he tried to fix it but was still on and off).

Shops had very little stock - no bread for the 3 days we were there - so it’s a bit of a hike into Polruan to the one shop there.

Most frustrating was the total inflexibility about being able to put up any sort of shelter with the campervan unless it was closely attached - and so many people were trying to do it and being told to take them down, .

There is plenty of space so it was hard to really understand the logic of why it wasn’t allowed - maybe it was a regulation/ licensing issue but the total lack of flexibility seemed extreme compared with pretty much any other site we have been to, both in Cornwall and elsewhere.

And all the signs around the site with the many rules (no ball games, absolute silence etc) all added to the feeling of it being quite starchy.

There is a small area for kids to play but wouldn’t describes this as a particularly child friendly site. Also, expensive site given mediocre facilities and lack of level pitches.

Despite the location, views and great walks right on the doorstep, we wouldn’t state at this site again.

(re location - lots of narrow roads to get there - not too easy for bigger vans)

 Beautiful views from the camping field.

Spotless facilities. Very friendly helpful owners.

Nice walks from the site with a bus stop right outside.

A nice downhill walk into Polruan with a pub, bakers and general store. The foot passenger ferry takes you over to Fowey.

A bit of a climb back up to the site.

Will definitely return.

 Once again a lovely site with great views, all the facilities were clean and modern as usual and the shop well stocked.

There are new owners running the site and they should be congratulated. Ray did his upmost to make us feel welcome and make our visit comfortable and he did everything possible to make our stay a pleasant one.

 Possibly one of the best sites we have stayed on, very clean and tidy. Owners very welcoming.

Bus stop right outside runs from the quay through to Polperro and Looe.

Ferry to Fowey at the quay and access to the South West coastal path.

Highly recommended

 Loved this site. If you like a peaceful site with beautiful sea views this is the best place in Cornwall to be.

The South West coastal path is on your doorstep as well as may other walks nearby.

A perfect place to unwind as a couple. My dog loved it too.
