 Very friendly and helpful staff, lovely neat site with excellent facilities (though we didnít try the showers/washrooms as we were self contained).

Great location with an lovely footpath to St Ives (with a few stone stiles to negotiate).

Easy access to a stunning section of the coast path.

 Arrived at this campsite on 4 July, the first day campsites were allowed to open after lockdown and what a breath of fresh air!

The campsite team had gone to so much trouble to put measures in place to make sure people were safe - the wardens were constantly cleaning toilets and showers.

The bus into St Ives is really easy and good value at £3. 50 for two adults - donít forget your face mask though!

Lovely friendly campsite with spotless facilities in a beautiful area 👏

 Thoroughly enjoyed our week here, the only downside was the weather, not the site fault but it is high up and windy. Our pitch that was fully serviced was large with small hedges on 3 sides and importantly flat.

The facilities are second to none, clean, bright and plentiful, my only bugbear was the shower water button needed to be pushed in so often it was ridiculous. The bathrooms which again were spotless had showers you turned on and off! The laundry was splendid and so was the games room.

There was a good play park and a large area for football etc. My only gripe was no area for our dog to exercise on the site, surely when you charge £2 a night for pooches they should have some facilities other than poo bins. We were there when schools were open and I reckon nearly everyone had a dog, why no walking/playing area?

The bus to St Ives was brilliant worth every penny of £3 return, itís a private service so no bus passes allowed! Dropped you in the middle of town and conveniently a co op was right by the bus stop, good for essentials.

There was a small shop on site where you could order croissants and bread. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and the whole site was immaculate, we will return I am sure.

 Lovely site, we stayed for 2 weeks as it is a central base to visit Lands End, Lizard, Penzance and of course St Ives.

Used the bus to take us down to St Ives, it is £1. 50 each way and well worth it, would cost more to park and then walk down.Walked to St Ives also along the coast path approx 2 miles, a lovely walk with amazing views.

We were on a serviced pitch, plenty of space and hedge either side. Noticed the non serviced pitches and non electric pitches were a bit more cramped and back to back with a hedge in between. Some units were very close as they could pitch either way on.

The toilets and showers were spotless, only complaint was the button to keep pressing every 7 seconds and could not control the temperature of the water which was very hot.

The lane to the site was very narrow, it had passing places but not big enough for caravan and car. Had to time leaving when we knew the bus was not due.

 Excellent site. Very pleasant grounds, good size pitches and the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen.

Owners and staff very helpful and friendly. Lovely setting in countryside with quick access to St Ives by bus from site.

Plenty of positive reviews which are all well deserved. We will be back.

Reviewer: Sundancekid2009 22 reviews from this member

 Before travelling to the site try to find out the times of the buses so you don't meet up with one in the lane, (not many passing place). Very nice site.

The buses take you to St Ives where you can travel on to other places after, otherwise you need a car (we tow a small fiat). The site is pleasant & clean. Plenty of toilets/showers with really hot water.

There's a 'pub' on site. My only complaint is the bar was the 'site locals' who made it almost impossible to get served. We camped in the 'upper field' the wind blew all the time we were there, almost impossible to sit outside / have a barbie.

I didn't realise / remember St Ives being such a crap place, although we were lucky enough to see a couple of good bands in some of the pubs.

We drove to Penzance a few times & up to Mount St Michael ( the parking was almost impossible ), at the end of the holiday it reminded me how much I hated being in Cornwall, from start to finish, from the pathetic M5 motorway then down through the never ending roadworks by Bodmin, then the same or worse traffic problems all the way back.

I wouldn't go that way again even if they paid me. I hate Cornwall!

 After our third visit to Trevalgan, I feel I am now in a position to leave a review which I feel is worthy.

Over recent years, Trevalgan have spent thousands on their site and it really shows. They work tirelessly to ensure the site is in tip top condition. The toilets and showers are pristine in every way. The addition of family toilets are a nice touch, giving you plenty of room when showering children. Now I admit, you may have to wait at times for the showers, but I get the timing right, as I did, you will walk straight in to one. Common sense really, don't go at peak periods, like any campsite!

There are plenty of fully serviced pitches, which we use. However, the water points are never far away should you need them. There are plenty of bins scattered around, which are emptied daily. The grass is always being cut, so looks beautiful. Each pitch is separated by laurels, so you have some privacy. We have been on the same pitch every time, due its privacy and size. We choose not to be so close to the park, as it can be noises with kids, as you would expect.

The games room has a pool table, table top football, table tennis (free if you have your own bats Although you can purchase them in the shop for £3. 50) and a air hockey table. It's only 50p per game, so very reasonable. Their shop has all you need and freshly baked can be ordered which arrives the following morning.

There is a bus which runs regularly into St Ives, which is £4 for a family ticket. The walks nearby are to die for, with the coastal path only 25 min walk away. You can walk into St Ives along the path, however I believe it would take well over an hour. You can access Clodgy Point, a good spot for fishing. Plenty of Mackerel to be had and the odd Bass.

Overall, this site is beautiful. Expensive, yes. How ever, you get what you pay for, as they say. The little touches on the site, such as quality toilet roll (my pet hate is cheap stuff!), an external shower to wash off wetsuits, cloths placed at the side of each sink for you to wipe over and the service is exceptional. Sometimes it's the little things. Trevalgan gives you the feel of it being in the middle of nowhere, when in fact you're 2 miles from St Ives. Our favourite site EVER!

We have booked for next year already, roll on.

Thank you once again, Trevalgan!

 What a great site, the staff who welcomed us were very polite and extremely willing to help and advise on a wide matter of things, this is an exceptionally clean and tidy place, the facilities are second to none and the personal shower rooms are the best we have encountered as well as the communal showers ( spotless). You are placed central to most of the towns around st Ives and the attractions all come within 20 to 30 miles. There is a bus service right outside the site for those who don't have transport, and it cost just £1. 50 to St Ives. The site has security that patrol after 11pm just to make sure that visitors are getting the peace that they deserve from this campsite. We spent a week here and were sad to leave as we couldn't fault anything about the place, this is for want of a better word( perfect )for all. The only bad thing was the weather wasn, t great, i, m pretty sure if trevalgan could have changed that then they would have, Thanks to you all at Trevalgan.

 Thought this site was excellent. The facilities some of the best we have used. Staff friendly. Nice level pitches. Plenty of room. Well kept, always working.

Great bus service into St. IVES. Was a bit worried about the lane to it but if everyone comes in and out as asked there is no problem. Was surprised the bus came to the site on an hourly basis, and if you should be unlucky to meet it, it will reverse. All worked fine for us.

Would definitely use this site again.

 This site is great if you have lots of money. Very clean and good facilities but you pay for them. No privacy and too many rules and regulations. Good site if you have children. If like us you like peace and quiet this is not for you.
