 This was our first stay at this lovely site. My Husband & I (and our three Pugs) had a lovely pitch, with far reaching views of the sand dunes and sea.

Immaculately maintained site, with lovely regularly mowed lawns and pitches.

Although we ourselves used our own on board facilities, the shower/ toilet block looked scrupulously clean and tidy. The ground was fantastic and drained really well.

Pegs for awnings/ tents were easily installed and removed, easily the best ground that we have ever experienced in 11 years of caravanning.

We have 50 litre capacity ‘waterhog’ containers, which normally take ‘forever’ to fill. Not so here! The water tap close to our pitch was incredibly fast and filled our containers in no time at all!

This site is very dog friendly, which was perfect for our needs. Not once did we find any dog mess left anywhere, such a refreshing change!

Wonderful location, very close to the lovely Perranporth beach (which is dog friendly all year round). Little touches, such as the outside dog/surfer cold shower are brilliant.

This site is very well run, with wardens on site if required (who were very welcoming, polite and helpful). We stayed on ‘Willow’ section, but explored all other areas which catered for all needs and were equally as lovely as ‘Willow’.

All pitches are incredibly spacious. We cannot praise this site enough and are already looking to rebook for next year!

Well done ‘Tollgate Farm’ caravanning ‘as it should be’ - 10/10

 We have just returned from our 5th annual visit and like most regulars we booked our pitch for next year. (There are no price increases for next year)Its the most laid back site we have camped on, that's why we all keep going back.

The site is quiet it's for families and couples so no noisy groups. The toilets and showers are spotless all day, the owners and wardens are very friendly and helpful. The site and the area is a dogie paradise, the site site does not charge for dogs so a lot of people have dogs but are well behaved.

There is a dog wash on site, and next door there is 600 acres of moorland for the dogs to exercise on. Perranporth has a 3 mile sandy beach which is dog friendly all year.

It is also a good base to explore Cornwsall. Buses to Truro, Newquay, and St Ives stop outside. A 20 minute drive will take you to the opposite coast, Helegan and the Eden Project are within reach

 Very clean loos and showers, helpful wardens and owners, short walk to the sand dunes for doggies

Close to Perranporth town, beach and golf course

Will be going again as soon as we can

 Stayed here with my (grown-up) daughter right at the start of the season, so there weren't many of us on site. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities spotlessly clean and working well. A nice, level grass pitch (with EHU available) and trees to offer some shelter from the wind.

The campsite gives you an excellent leaflet about pedestrian routes into Perranporth, to the beach and in the surroundings. Location offers great walks (with or without your dog) on its doorstep and the walk to Perran beach (via a Haven monster holiday park) takes about 20 mins.

Don't be put off by slow response to the phone; all the information is clear on site and, as I said, the staff very helpful.

Reviewer: Jannerjon 5 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for a weekend, only our second trip in The motorhome.

Very easy to find, good roads all the down to site, the access though is a bit different, very tight to get into, had to turn in on the opposite side of the road turn around and cross the road, probably didn’t help as our unit is just under 8 metres.

Once on site nice and easy fairly flat pitches but would recommend using ramps.

Facilities on site pretty good and always clean when used.

Perranporth can be walked to either across the sand dunes or following a path that runs next to the main toad. The beach is fabulous, got everything, pools, surf, beautiful clean water.

Overall worth the pitch fee of £26 per night, and we stayed a bit later than kick off time of 10:30, just asked and told just make a donation in one of the charity boxes, stayed to about 15:00.

 Really lovely & tidy site with friendly staff to greet you. From memory it was £23 a night for two adults & two dogs.

Decent size pitches and clean toilet and shower facilities.

I guess my only gripe is that to say the beach is nearby is a little generous, its a 30 minutes walk up down a steep hill on a public footpath, no problem for us but its a long way for young kiddies.

 This is a very well run campsite. Reception welcoming and efficient in both booking and receiving you on your arrival.

Pitches well marked out with ample space for tent (an outsell Montana lake with front porch 8m x 4m. Toilet block always clean and tidy.

Showers ok pressure an issue at times of high demand but easy to overcome by adjusting when to shower

Warden was helpful and often on rounds. We would come here again as a enjoyable walk leads to the beach.

 Stayed here loads. Perfect for Perranporth Beach (good place for sand loving families and top surfing) and the Watering Hole pub.

Run by some great lads, good office/shop with local ales, spotless clean showers, quiet, lovely views and overall pure heaven for Cornwall fans.

It is getting a bit pricey in peak season for my liking but we can afford the hit so will keep going back for now as it is that good but if it keeps going up we might have to look elsewhere.

Nearly forgot there is a kids animal farm and good play area too. Give it a go, you won't regret it.

Reviewer: CarpenterClan 15 reviews from this member

 Just enjoyed two weeks at this site, our first visit, the site is split either side of a lane, we were in Perran field which we picked as we don't have young children and this side has no play park and less suited to young children.

Access was a little tricky with a caravan, you have to go into a car park area in the opposite field and turn round so that you can then go straight across the lane into Perran and the same coming out. I can imagine this putting some folk off returning as you need to do a bit of manoeuvring and if there are cars parked in this area this is made more difficult.

This wouldn't put us off returning though as we are used to manoeuvring our caravan in tricky situations.

We were there outside of the school holidays so it wasn't too busy, I can imagine the facilities might struggle when the place is full. Our shower/toilet block had two good size showers and several tight toilet cubicles and three sinks. There was also a pay to use hairdryer and straightening irons which I didn't use.

The block was always clean and stocked with soap and toilet roll. The showers are free and spacious but they are the push on and off style and the one shower was better than the other for length of time it stayed on, the worst only staying on for 8-10 seconds which I found irritating, also all the showers are a set heat, you cannot alter them, and it tends to be on the hot side, after a day sunbathing on the beach they were a bit uncomfortable being so hot, I would not like to have a young child in there with me, too hot for them.

The flow did alter somewhat if someone was using a tap elsewhere but I liked the fact that you can take the shower head off the unit. There was a spray bottle of something in the showers too, wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with that, and a rubber mop thing to dry the floor up which was useful. Also a baby changing table in the one.

There is a washing up room with two sinks. The site is only slightly sloping and the pitches are generous and you can park your unit anyway you like which is nice.

The position of the site was a good point for us, right next to acres and acres of sand dunes with paths leading all over, bit of a dog walking attraction, bit too much dog poo left mind you.

You can walk into Perran Sands Holiday site and use their bar, shops and cafes which was very useful, walk all around the static caravans, even walk down to the beach, though that is a long way down a steep path which is pushchair friendly but not for the infirm.

You can walk into Perranporth, a mile away down a path near to the road, though it is a good hill again. The addition of the animals to the site is a nice touch for kiddies, there are goats, chickens, rabbits and birds.

There is a small shop on site and an information point, a coffee machine and vending machine, useful for campers and a bus stop right outside on the main road. There is WiFi available at a cost. Virtually no reception on our mobile phones.

The warden and other staff are all very friendly and welcoming and I would return and I recommend this site.

 Once again we had a great break at Tollgate Farm. We're repeat customers and fussy ones at that, so it must be good!

It's a quiet site, no big groups or late parties which is great for us. The pitches are large and well maintained. I've been to campsites where tents are butted up against each other - awful! If I wanted a town, I wouldn't leave London! Here, you get a feeling of space to breathe which I love.

This year we used their pods - everything you could possibly need is provided even down to a brolly (which unfortunately came in handy!). There are just five of them tucked into a field of their own. Cute and very comfortable.

The toilet blocks are immaculate. We've been here too many times to count and I've never seen them without loo roll or dirty. There's laundry facilities and two separate family showers which are large and well equipped. The wetsuit and dog wash also come in handy for desalting your beach stuff and pooches.

As for the location, well you're in walking distance of the glorious Perranporth beach via the road or the more scenic route over Perran Sands, maps available at reception. Crantock is just a short drive or Newquay itself is easily accessible.

All in all, fabulous! My only complaint is our breaks there are never long enough!
