Central location, peaceful site

This site is in a very good location, only about a mile from the A30 (which produces a slight hum if the wind is coming from the right direction) and a further mile to Redruth with a good selection of shops. We were there during harvest time, which may explain why we didn't see the owners much in person (mainly smiles from the distance), I was lucky enough to see them out when we were going out to give them our fees; but they have been very pleasant throughout. The elsan point is an outside toilet which is fine, I wouldn't use it for its primarily purpose given its secondary one! The site is away from the road so there is little traffic noise at all, however leaving the site is not great as it is on the outside of a large bend which reduces visibility; fortunately that road is not overly busy so usually there was nothing coming. There is a slight slope to the site, but didn't stop us going sideways to the fencing and putting our awning on the side. Grass was on the longer side, but given the time of year, they probably have better things to get on with. I did chuckle as all caravans were diligently separating out our recycling into the different boxes, only for a note to be added that they can only recycle glass, shame on you Cornwall Council. There are limited recycling facilities in the supermarkets, and a recycling site near Redruth Tesco for you to do your bit. Overall a lovely site that we would be happy to return to, only real downside was the British weather!

Lovely site

The site is lovely and peaceful and the owners, once you're settled in leave you to enjoy the peace and quiet.  Our dogs were able to run free in the owner's adjoining field, and there is a pathway, kept mown by the owner, to a permissive path leading into Tehidy Country Park, in which there are lovely walks, and if you feel energetic, you can make a lovely circular walk through the park and on to the  coastline and Portreath.  Being just a mile from the A30, access to the site is easy, even with a large caravan.

Well worth the price

Owners are friendly and leave you alone to enjoy your holiday.  Field is slightly sloping with well spaced electric points across the top, grass is quite rough and long but after a few days you tend to flatten it around your space anyway. Plenty of space for kids to play down near the trees. There is a toilet down near the house which doubles as the elsan point!  The real bonus of this site is the ability to walk from the site round the fields and into Tehidy Park - no going near the road so safe for kids on bikes or walking the dog with various walks around Tehidy.  Plenty to do in local area. There is some noise from the A30 depending on wind direction, but not too noisy, and the sheep tend to drown it out anyway!

Nice Peaceful Site

This is a lovely peaceful site, the owners are working farmers however they are friendly and helpful but do not bother you. There is a nice walk for the dogs around their field. Tehidy Park is great and the site is close to a little sandy beach inlet. Will be going again soon.
