Good and bad (not bad really)

It's a CL !!!! I think previous reviews have been harsh. Like a lot of CL's the entrances are tight, it's up to us club members to make use of things like Google Street view to check out the how things look. We have been here three times and it's not been over full at any time which is a real shame, we arrived on the 19th of July 2019 and met the owner and we were made welcome it was raining and I was invited in out of the rain whilst booking into the site. CL owners can not be expected to wait in all of the time for club members to arrive hence I feel that some of the past reviews are unfair. The site has large hard standings. Perfect for the Camel cycle trail and a good all round base for visiting Cornwall, come on members please look at the positives of CL sites and make the best of them. The pub nearby is good with garden all in easy walking distance.

Seen better days

It is easy to miss the entrance to this site. No one was around to welcome us or even take our money. The site is pleasant enough if you don’t mind the 30 foot high leylandii hedge which makes for a claustrophobic area and fails to cut out the noise of traffic. The one toilet was less than adequate. The site has obviously had investment in the past but sadly suffers from loss of interest by its owners. The redeeming feature is the ease of access to the wonderful Camel Trail. Overall, staying here was a disappointing experience. In our opinion it is overpriced for what it is at present and in comparison with other sites we have stayed on recently.

One night stay

The access to the site is difficult but the information in the caravan club sites book warned us. Upon arrival we couldn’t gain access to the site due to a secure gated entry requiring a code. I saw a man cutting the grass and he gave us the access code. We did not then see anybody else again from the site. The walks from here are excellent. We walked in the woods and along the Camel Trail. Another member advised us of these walks. The facilities need some TLC. The location is beautiful.

Campervan Visit May 2018

Impersonal site - we never saw the owners to speak to, our only communication was by phone and was necessitated by the tripping out of the electricity supply to the whole site (?caused by the Electric Gate to site) both on arrival and during the subsequent night. Pretty location but the adjacent road is very busy although we didn't find the noise too intrusive. There is a pavement opposite the site entrance which can be used to give safe access to a footpath leading to the Camel Trail (not far to wheel one's bike). Pitches flat and surrounding grass well maintained. Water supply to pitch but no instructions re grey water disposal. Black water emptying point not used!

Nice location but beware entrance!!

Have just returned after 5 nights. Totally agree with other comments- nice location but in need of some TLC. The road noise didn't bother us as we were on a pitch a little further away from the road. The Camel Trail is accessible for walking via a path through the woods from the rear of the CL which is very pleasant alongside the river. If using bikes you will have to go uphill on the road to the Bourough Arms. Worse bit...the access. If coming from Bodmin direction the entrance is a VERY sharp left hand turn after a bridge. We had to reverse back out onto the busy main road in order to make the turn. There is a nasty hump on the entrance and out twin axle nearly "bottomed out". They have clearly done some work to improve the entrance but still tricky for longer single axle, twin axles or motor homes. If coming from Wadebridge direction it would be much easier to access the site. A potentially fabulous site spoils by access.
