Unit: Touring Caravan. Very quiet and nearly empty site (stayed 6 nights in mid July) so had a choice of pitches even though one had been allocated when booking in on the phone. The site is very flat, with very generous pitches mostly on grass with a few fully serviced pitches on gravel, and there is a lot of screening with hedges and trees between different areas of the site. The flower and shrub planting was beautiful and is a credit to the owners. Very friendly and helpful reception from the wardens when we arrived who walked the site with us when we were choosing a pitch and made suggestions about sun and shade possibilities.
Toilets and showers were in first class condition - nothing missing or broken, and were always spotlessly clean. Showers are push button but not a problem to use. Childrens play area looked good but there were next to no children on site during our stay. Great idea in the recycling area where you could leave your unwanted kit, and/or pick up something that might be useful for your tent or van. Didn\'t try the Unicorn pub in Porthtowan because it seemed a bit scruffy with some work in progress, but on a recommendation from the owner we tried the Victory at the top of the hill on the way to St Agnes and found it to be a lovely little traditional pub with nice food and a small beer garden. Can definitely recommend this site and would go again. CCA-price was lovely.

Um von diesem Platz aus Cornwall zu erkunden ein idealer Ausgangspunkt. Sanitärräume klein aber sehr sauber. 10 Minuten Fußweg zur Steilküste an der auch der Cornwallküstenwanderweg entlangführt. Einkauf und sonstiges geht wohl besser mit dem Auto. Wir blieben 3 Nächte die sich gelohnt haben.

Nette,zonnige, camping (als het niet regent).Doet denken aan een \'boeren camping\'. Alles kraakhelder, eenvoudig, functioneel verzorgd.Plaatsen over meerdere velden verdeeld.

Great campsite, very well run, clean and welcoming. Had a very enjoyable weeks stay. The pitches are spacious and well maintained. Plenty of room for the children to play with a large grassy area for ball games which was safe and visible from our pitch. Staff are very hardworking and polite. Would definitely return.

Mooie, rustige en propere camping.
Wie van strand houdt moet wel rekening houden met een fikse (niet ongevaarlijke) wandeling. Wifi is er inderdaad, maar wel betalend.
Uitstekende uitvalbasis voor het westen van Cornwall.
