For those who like a bit of extra buzz, the larger seaside resorts of Padstow and Bude are not far away.

Great stay for our first trip since lockdown

Pat gave us warmest welcome we have had when we got to the site and made us feel at home right away. She and husband Mick are so friendly, helpful and hard working. We were lucky enough to get a hard standing for our motorhome, so no issues with wet grass etc. The facilities are perfectly acceptable and despite there only being 2 showers and 2 toilets available, there was never a queue when I used them. There is a good local bus service to Padstow, Bodmin and Bude - for Tintagel and Boscastle. However, the routes are through the local villages and therefore not speedy on the longer routes. A taxi to Tintagel and bus back works well. The Camel Trail between Padstow and Wadebridge is a lovely walk and fits in with the buses from the site. St Julitta's Church just down the road from the site is worth walking to, lovely location and fascinating gravestones. Thanks Pat and Mick for a great stay.

Big Bang in Camelford

we stayed here four nights as part of our current tour. the site was busy which meant the choice of pitches was limited. The pitch we chose was in a corner which looked wet and dark, turned out not to be the case but I did have to be careful not to plough the park when we left. As others have said the facilities block is in need of a complete upgrade, The wardens here are doing a fantastic job, they keep the site very clean, very inviting and have the balance between safety and freedom just right. It was disappointing that the WiFi was not working and there seemed to be no definite date for its repair. We found the buses easy to locate and use. People with a phobia about electricity pylons should not stay here. Early one morning, the people in the next caravan turned their gas on without opening the flue vent and blew the bl...y door off as Michael Caine might say, that was exciting!

Our first stay at Camelford

This was our first stay at Camelford and we had a nice stay but facilities could have been better. The shower block is old but kept clean. We did not use the shower block because of Covid 19, we used our own facilities. What we found annoying was that there was only one chemical waste facility based at the end of the shower block, none at any of the service points. Also no bins at the service points, you had to walk up to the shower to a bin compound for recycling and general waste. When we arrived there had been a lot of rain so all the grass pitches were churned up, so people were trying to get hard standing pitches. There are only thirteen hard standing pitches and we were lucky to get one. Pitch moving seemed to happen every day as motor homes were struggle o the grass pitches. We had lovely views of sunset whilst there and lovely weather but I don’t think we would stay there again. The assistant warden worked really hard helping motor homes get off wet pitches and cleaning up mole hills.

Good place to stay as a base camp, quiet and staff friendly

Third time we have stayed here in 8 weeks, just bought our vw campervan. Great place to stay as a base camp, with easy access onto the A39 and beyond. We pitched on grass using our levellers with no problems. Staff friendly and informative. Facilities clean and good Covid systems in place. We only stayed for one night at a time as handy for us whilst travelling down or back from the lower parts of Cornwall. Would stay longer if could. Great for visiting Roughtor, Brown Willy Tor if you like walking. The old Davidstow airfield was a great find for exploring. WiFi is an issue on-site, only available in a small radius around the upper part of the site. We have just bought a mobile router £70 and data SIM card PAY go and tried it there and had no problems with WiFi or internet connection. Overall, a nice place to stay, well run and clean. Will definitely be back. Well done to the two sets of wardens.😀
