Excellent site

As expected there is some road noise. Being located so close to the a30 this is a given, but it is in no way obtrusive. The views and excellent facilities more than make up for it. Perfect location for exploring the local area as well. The pitches are slightly sloping, but firm hard standing all the way from the road so no worries whatever the weather. Dave was very welcoming and took the time to tell us what was around us and where was best to visit. Overall a site I would visit again without hesitation. Spot on.

Bring Wellies and Earplugs

Starting with the positives the location is good for the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and indeed for touring the rest of the county. The owner met us on arrival and was friendly enough but no maps or information on local amenities. Unfortunately you couldn’t walk anywhere from the site because there were no kerbs and the surrounding roads were dangerous. The major draw for us was the 4 acre dog area but unfortunately the grass was knee high and soaking wet in September so even the dog didn’t fancy it. The 200yd walk to the toilet/shower block was also wet and muddy and a bit of paving wouldn’t go amiss there. The 2 toilets and 1 shower were basic but adequate for 5 pitches. The hot tub was out of action fortunately 🙂 some traffic noise is an understatement being next to two busy roads and the noise was 24/7. Personally it was not our cup of tea and really disappointing that the dog couldn’t enjoy it, but I would just say it’s cheap and cheerful, very laid back, bring wellies and ear plugs.

Really good, will come again

Easy to access and a great welcome from Dave: unusally, the directions are spot-on. 'Facilities' are excellent: just that the weather (mid-October 2019) made the walk there pretty muddy so a hard path would have helped. The pub in Roche is excellent and a meal is recommended.

Good location, no hidden extras

Excellent location for travelling around Cornwall - only a short drive from the Eden Project and Wheal Martyn. Big field to exercise the dogs, and we didn't have to pay for the shower or the use of WiFi (this was the owners not Caravan Club, so you could access everything for free!). There is some constant road noise, but the owners helpfulness and extra facilities more than make up for it. A very open site with plenty of room.

the perfect host

we used this site for two nights to visit the Eden Project. The location was perfect for this, just 7 mins drive away. David the host was fantastic, so helpful and friendly. He provided us with cable protectors so that we could pitch where we wanted and still protect our power cable. We also heard he had helped another camper the night before when storms were trying to blow away their awning. The toilets and showers are basic but are kept clean and the shower hot and good. The traffic can be heard as close to the main road, but the location and accessibility make up for it.
