Lovely CL

Kivells
We chose Kivells on the basis of the great reviews, and it is one of the prettiest we’ve stayed on. We really loved the huge pitches, beautiful trees and immaculately mown grass which make it feel open, sunny and welcoming. The access down a typical Cornish lane is a little challenging but only about a mile long so not a huge issue. We were a little disappointed to find on arrival that the games room is no longer available and that the WiFi only works right by the facilities area. The provision of a toilet and shower is very useful but it would be helpful if a mop could be provided so that users can leave it clean rather than muddy, particularly when the owners are not always around to clean it. We were happy to pay 20p per shower but it would have been really helpful to know this beforehand as we spent a lot of time trying to source 20p coins! We found the location perfect for getting around this part of Cornwall as it’s close to the main road, but far enough down the lane to be super quiet and peaceful. Definitely one of the best CLs we’ve stayed on.

Great CL but difficult access

Kivells
This CL is up there with the best - well laid out, loads of room and the site is well cared for and scrupulously clean. Peter and Melanie are very friendly and accommodating. The 1.5 mile access to the CL, down a very narrow country lane with overgrown vegetation, is very demanding for a car and caravan or a motorhome, with limited passing places large enough to use (4 including 2 in private driveways!) and 12 blind bends (3 halfway and a further 9 to the CL). There are a few single car passing places which the other numerous vehicles you encounter will have to reverse a long way back into to allow you to pass. We decided to leave the CL late at night and a day early to reduce the chances of encountering other vehicles. When arriving at the CL and following the signs to the pitches, take care to keep as wide to the right as you can on the final rather tight uphill bend to avoid stalling and or grounding your unit.

Idyllic setting, wonderful CL

Kivells
Sue and I have stayed at many CLs during our caravanning/motorhoming life but few, if any, have come close to this one. Surrounded by wooded hills and farm fields, the CL is a beautifully mown space with specimen trees and bags of space for even the largest outfit (we spotting one caravan with an awning each side, a spreading sitting-out area and still space for the tow-car - and no impingement on neighbouring pitches). There's a field for dog walking with direct access, a games room with table tennis table and a shower and toilet room which is scrupulously clean and would be a credit to any home. Add friendly owners, and what more could you wish for? The access road is typically Cornish (ie narrow) but we coped just fine our 7,25m motorhome, which we used every day on our journeys out and about, only having to do a bit of neat reversing once! We loved this place.

Thank you

Kivells
After reading the positive reviews we did have high expectations but we needn’t have worried as they where spot on. The location was excellent and Pete and Melanie couldn’t have been more helpful. It was a brand new caravan and I’d been away from caravanning for a few years so I was a little worried about the roads near the site, but Pete couldn’t have been more helpful and was even waiting for me at my time of departure to help and give advice. We will be back for sure and thank you again for making us so welcome and for all the help. We could see how hard you’ve both worked to make your site so special, it was immaculate, so thank you again and we look forward to seeing you next year!
