I camped here for a week, and was given an exceptionally warm welcome. I was given help and advice whenever I needed it.

As mentioned by others, the washing and cleaning facilities are superbly clean, and the water for washing & showers was just the right temperature (there was chilly sea-fog when I was there so warmth was needed). There's a washing machine and spin-dryer of you need it. The design of the washing/cleaning block is very well thought out, with a good large family room as well. The decor delighted me, being made of good quality wood and stone, designed to have clean lines and yet modern, making a virtue out of the basic essentials.

The site is flat or nearly flat - lovely for camping. The camper-vans didn't need to level the vehicles. The owners have added more flat hard-standing standing pitches this year.

This is a small site, and being kept that way by the owners to retain a friendly atmosphere. I highly recommend it.

Hellesveor is a really pretty small campsite nestled at the back of a farm with access to the coastal path but cleverly protected from the wind. The toilet and washing up facilities are on as par with the best we've experienced and spotlessly clean. We visited on a weekend in July and whilst expected it to be busy were disappointed that the site was so busy with tents and motorhomes packed in very tightly. There are only 3 toilets and showers so this meant early morning queues. The owners are clearly creating something very special with this site, but a second toilet block is urgently needed and perhaps a limit on the number of bookings they take. We would use this site again as its perfect for visiting st ives, but would avoid weekends and high season.

We visited St Ives last year and stayed at the nearby Ayr Campsite. Whilst out walking the coastal path we saw Hellesveor and it looked fabulous. So when visiting this year we booked 5 nights and were so pleased.

The site is family run and everyone is made welcome - on our last night the owners young son even sold us some mackerel he had caught that day for 1! It was delicious on the barbecue.

The toilet and shower block are newly built and kept clean amd tidy even when the site is full. Apparently additional facilities are going to be built which will alleviate the occasional queue in the morning rush hour.

You can go straight onto the country path onto the SW Coastal walk and it is 20 minutes to St Ives. Or go the opposite way to Zennor and you are rewarded with a 2 hour walk of stunning views and the Tinners Arms at the end!

St Ives is beautiful and has a couple of dog friendly beaches around the town and 4 other glorious sandy beaches for family days or surfing ( cheaper equipment hire is available in town rather than on the beach).

The Schooner Inn on the harbourside has a great outdoor frontage and good food if you want to people watch for an hour or three.

Will definitely return

NOTE: in October 2014 UK Campsite's Administrator wrote: 'Hellesveor Caravan And Camping Site is under new management and they are undergoing several improvements to the site. '

Two years later I have just returned from a short stay. The new owners have transformed Hellesveor into an excellent campsite.

In fact, as an experienced camper I can honestly say it is one of the best small sites I have ever used. I rate it as 10/10 - full marks.

Andrew and Mel, the owners, live on site with their young children. I found them a really charming couple and they could not have been more friendly and helpful.

The site is well-maintained and cared for. The newly-built facilities block is well designed and very stylish. During my stay, the water was piping hot and supplies were regularly replenished. There are covered washing up sinks, a free freezer, and token-operated washing machine and clothes drier. There's a family bathroom as well as individual shower cubicles.

The site caters to family groups and couples - it is not for rowdy single-sex groups - so there is a noise curfew. On the nights I stayed it was very quiet after 10pm and I didn't hear traffic noise from the nearby road.

The location is very good indeed. Hellesvore Farm is within walking distance of St Ives and on bus routes from the town centre. It is effectively on the outskirts of St Ives but also conveniently near the junction of the B3306 and BB3311 roads - this means you can drive to the site without getting caught up in St Ives itself.

The access lane is signed from the B3306 road and is fine for small caravans.

For active campers, this campsite is a good base for walking - a footpath leads from the campsite directly to the South West Coast Path.

The site is on a very gentle slope but the pitches are level. The grass is well-kept and short but the soil is a bit stony in places so take rock pegs. There are EHU points around the edge of the field. During my stay there was an even mix of tents, camper vans and small caravans. Cars can be parked beside tents.

It was very windy on the last day of my stay and there was overnight rain. Being on high ground near the coast the site catches the wind but hedges, trees and buildings offer a bit of shelter. Despite the rain the site drained well and the grass didn't become muddy.

Dogs are welcome - there were several there during my stay - and the adjacent footpath is ideal for dog walking.

To sum up, this is a lovely little family campsite which is maintained to a high standard by its resident owners. I will definitely be visiting Hellesveor again and I highly recommended it. Truly outstanding.

Just discovered this site in the town of St. Ives at the top of the hill, could not believe how lucky I was. The owners Mel and Andrew are so friendly they create a lovely vibe to this smallish gem of a site.

Facilities are awesome, never seen any so tastefully beautiful, however, there are only two unisex loos with their own sinks and four sinks in communal space and couple of showers, a family room, a kitchen with freezer space for blocks but also food, washing machine etc. I know there is work going on on the periphery so I'm sure the facilities will be added to. At the moment they are small in number but perfectly formed.

There is a small overflow area where I camped and the main site over a stone stile or through a gate. The owners live in the cottage just behind the facilities so are right at the heart of the site. It has the wonderful feeling that you are just camping in their garden and it is dog friendly and camp fires allowed.

Behind the wall is a farm track which leads to the coast path.

There is a co-op at the top of the hill near the camp site and a bus stop and Tesco at the top of the town too.

It is quite a difficult location to find a site which is non regimented and overly expensive. This is neither.

Wonderful site run by a lovely family.

This is a lovely, well maintained, compact site on the edge of St Ives. Easy access to the town, either by walking or using the frequent and friendly bus service. Mel & Andrew, the hosts, are approachable, helpful and eager to please. The site is still undergoing modification and improvements which is an indication of the owner's commitment to it's future. The new toilet/shower block is superb - water the right temperature and always plenty of it, spacious washing up facilities, a communal freezer, and a washing machine and drier to use with tokens. Fairly level site with not much shade and hook up available for all 12 pitches. There are static caravans at the bottom of the area and wi-fi is available at a small extra cost. The coastal path adjoins the campsite and is surprisingly busy with walkers. This is a quiet site which suited us perfectly. We stayed for 18 nights and loved it. We'll be back.
