Why stay here ...
The site is in the old orchard on this family run dairy farm, partly surrounded by trees it is quiet and peaceful and you may be lucky enough to see Owls at dusk and hear them calling.
Locally at Rosudgeon there is a grocery store which also has a petrol station, post office, off licence and newspapers. The Falmouth Packet Inn, serves food and there is a Fish and Chip shop
There is direct access from the camp site to the inland footpath network which connects to the South West Coastal Footpath. Walk east to Prussia Cove and enjoy the views of Mounts Bay towards Porthleven and Praa Sands, (you may catch a glimpse of a Cornish Chough or a seal on the rocks) or go west and marvel at the views of Perranuthnoe and St Michael's Mount with the villages of Mousehole and Newlyn in the distance across Mount's Bay.
Perranuthnoe has a sandy beach, two cafés and the award winning Victoria Inn. On thursday afternoons during the summer there are cream teas with homemade cakes in the church rooms, proceeds go to the beautiful old Church.
Marazion with its sandy beach and children's play area is just a short drive away. There are several cafes and public houses serving food in Marazion and there is a doctor's surgery, a chemist, bakers and gift shops. There are ferryboats to St Michael's Mount, but it is possible to walk the causeway at low tide. Longrock beach west of Marazion is dog friendly.
Penzance about five miles away has larger shops, banks and quaint old Chaple Street which leads down to the harbour where it is possible to catch a trip boat to view the Bay from the water. The seafront Promenade links Penzance to Wherry Town and Newlyn. There is an open air swimming pool near to the Promenade.
The Scillonian Ferry sails from Penzance to the Isles of Scilly daily in summer and day trips are popular.

Booked this site in January for an October visit and requested EHU and hardstanding. Rang to confirm a couple of days before arriving and was told she didn't reserve hardstandings and we had to get there early if we wanted one. Unhelpful and not mentioned when we originally booked. The approach starts with the long, very bumpy and muddy track to the farm and gets worse when you hit the deep cow muck at the farmyard. Beware the stinking pond on your left as you get nearer to the CL. The site itself is tired, run down, uncared-for and clearly hadn't been mown in recent times. There are 3 grass pitches and 2 small hardstandings but you have to cross the long wet grass to reach them! None of them are level. The site was beset by flies of all varieties. On the plus side the village of Rosudgeon has a small Co-op with Post Office and there is a fish & chip shop. Penzance with several major supermarkets is nearby and there is a distant view of St. Michael's mount from the public footpath/dog walk although it's marred by power cables. The western Cornish peninsula is within easy reach for day-trips. Cannot recommend this site and we will not be coming back.
Comment from the Club:
Many thanks for your review and we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. The CL Site is a working cattle farm where the cows go back and forth throughout the day, so with the mud and wet weather the yard does get muddy. As a result the CL Owners have now decided to close over the winter months to prevent any further concerns about this. They will remain open during the rest of the year for members to enjoy their lovely site.
