Reviewer: Rich Ta 5 reviews from this member

 We booked two night on a very wet weekend. The owners warned us that most pitches were waterlogged and the hardstanding was a bit like a car park. It was and that was OK, we had been warned. The next day we went out, returned at dusk to find no space on the hardstanding. I went to the house and found they owners had left their teenage daughter in charge. She advised us to see if any other pitch was dry enough to get on, , or we could have our money back which is not what you want at dusk. There were no pitches we could have got the van on. I returned to the house for a refund, but no-one would answer. I have repeatedly asked for and been promised a refund, which has not been sent. It is 6 weeks later, I give up.

 Stayed at this caravan park during Aug. We stayed a family of 4 in the second Chalet in. The chalet had everything you need for a 2 week stay, but definitely needs some TLC. The sofas are literally falling apart although they place throws over them they are still very uncomfortable to sit on. The same for the beds unfortunately we were all up from around 6. 30am due to having bad backs. If the owners spent a bit of money Replacing these items the chalet would be excellent. It is in a good location only around a 5 min drive to the beach and centre of Falmouth. The owners put on some entertainment during the school holidays just little things like a kids disco, bingo and quizzes. It was a nice little end to the evening and gave the children the opportunity to mingle. The children also enjoyed the tractor rides in the morning. The camp site is pretty quite and although the owners were friendly I did find the gentleman quite abrupt at times. I didn't appreciate being told to make sure the chalet was clean when leaving. Now I'm sure they encounter guests that would leave the chalet in a dirty state I for one am not one of the, I actually cleaned the chalet before leaving anyway. I was expecting more of a 'hope you had a nice stay', we may see you again response on leaving. For them reasons I would not stay again. But I imagine if you are camping or touring it would be a lovely little site.

 We visited this again this summer for 2 weeks in August and will return in 2016. It continues to be a great family run site. The owner continues to invest which is a healthy sign for any business. The free showers have been improved by adding increased hot water storage to the main shower block and both small and large shower blocks were open.

Reviewer: Cloudend 1 review from this member

 A lovely place to stay. Genuinely welcoming, and even though the site was quite full we never ha d to queue for a toilet/shower, and there was always hot water. The facilities were always clean. The owners work hard: family entertainments most evenings and well kept grounds. Although there is no campsite shop, there is a co-op convenience store within a mile, and we found it quite easy to make a small detour when leaving/travelling to the site for milk, newspapers, etc.

The private path to Maenporth beach is a real plus point: when our children were small they would not have wanted to venture further for a good sea-side experience. Though hilly, we used our bikes extensively to tour the area with plenty of good places within easy reach.

 We had such a great time, thank you so much. You have a perfect campsite and we loved all the extras (morning kids tractor rides, Farmers Olympics etc).

Beautiful special path to Maenporth beach, hot water at all times, no queues and very clean.

Children were able to ride their bikes around the site giving them a sense of freedom they don't get at home. Beautiful plants. Tranquil setting.

Owners and staff very friendly and provided evening entertainment either in the play area or their barn each evening.

 I stayed here and had a most comfortable and calm week in a very beautiful spot. The owners are the most kind and helpful people, who also obviously work very hard in keeping the place spotless, with everything in top notch order. The toilet/showers were always clean and every facility was available. The site was quiet and friendly surrounded by beautiful trees and lots of room. There are lots of places nearby to eat, visit and walk to. I had my dog and 2 cats with me who also really enjoyed staying there as it is safe and pet friendly. I will be going back!

Reviewer: Mossyjm 2 reviews from this member

 Mixed feelings about this site. Owners friendly and helpful but facilities limited in number and really too basic for the 21st century and as compared to many other sites and price charged. Facilities not really sufficient for people there, over busy periods it seemed as many people as possible are crammed in. The brochure is rather better than the reality, the scenic views are only there from some areas. The hard standing area is very tatty with lots of residents who seem to work locally and have the additional stuff around to make their lives better but which impacts badly on the look of the site. Good access to beach and 4 buses daily to Falmouth, no shops or pubs in easy walking distance but café on beach, quiet at night. Not somewhere we'd go back to.

Reviewer: Pete H 2 reviews from this member

 Would agree with some of the previous reviews - so clearly site has not been improved in the last two years though toilets and showers were reasonable. Parked on a hardstanding next to a 'permanent' 5th wheeler with various other caravans there for the long stay and/or in storage - this area was very unattractive and generally untidy. Could have moved to a grassy area but afraid of getting the van bogged in and really not prepared to pay £23. 00 per night (cash!) especially as we do not need to be hooked up so glad we were not booked and just stayed the one night and moved to the perfection of Merrose Farm Caravan Club site north of Falmouth at £17. 50 per night.

Reviewer: LadyCarol 1 review from this member

 We stayed at Pennance Mill farm for the third time, there's a pitch for everyone, vws, tents, caravans, on a well looked after site. The owners go out of there way to make sure you are in your right spot.

Loos and showers are regularly cleaned and are sufficient for the site. Family orientated, lots of good fun for the kids, eg, tractor rides, no bingo hall. But in the summer there's entertainment, dancing and film nights, just join in.

Walk through the wild wild wood to maenporth beach, peaceful with good icecreams and a bar on the other side.

Falmouth is busy with cafes, bars, galleries and museums, an interesting town.

 We had difficulty finding this site and couldn’t see any of the brown tourist signs showing the location of the site which were indicated on their website.

The toilet/shower block is modern and bright, with good dishwashing facilities. The showers are push button and are nice a hot with good pressure. My husband however, felt that the toilets were very stretched first thing in the morning (this wasn’t an issue with the ladies loos). There were some people living at the site and going to work early, and also a group of students were staying so this probably contributed to this situation with the men’s loos whilst we were there – as overall the site wasn’t busy at all. There were extra toilets but they were shut in the early season.

There are no shops nearby or an on site shop so you need to stock up before arrival. Also, they don’t take card payments, which is surprising considering the size of the site.

There is a private path (owned by the site) leading the beach at Maenporth – with security coded gates en-route. This is a much safer route to the coast than the road which is surprisingly busy.

There is also a bus stop near the site entrance – make sure you read the timetable thoroughly as we misread it and there wasn’t a bus back!

We did think this site was quite expensive for the time of year - £23 per night including electric, this was the most expensive site we stayed at on our holiday – we stayed here 3 nights.
