Camelford's Aroma is not Aromatic

We arrived in good time but did not see any signs for The Club Site, although there were plenty for golf course etc, the sign did not come into view until we were around the corner. Hey-ho we went round the block. As the site was quiet we had our pick of the pitches and chose hardstanding which was pretty level. The site staff were helpful and friendly. The facilities were clean, however the toilet and shower block needs revamped. There is a fish &chip van which comes onto the site and we decided to give it a whirl, wished we hadn't wasted our money, there was more batter than fish.... If you go into Camelford steer clear of The Masons Arms and don't believe the reviews like we did, it was awful. We did have good food at the Bettle & Chisel Inn, Delabore, this is 10/15 mins from the site. On arrival the host gave us a warm welcome and overall the service was very good, plenty of atmosphere as the restaurant was full. Fantastic location for visiting stunning, coastal areas. Enjoyed many days out especially the ferry trip from Rock to Padstow with a tasty brunch in THE CHERRY TREE. A lovely, relaxing holiday shame about the whiff from the slurry .....

Return Visit Didn't Disappoint!!

The wardens here are a breath of fresh air and made us feel really welcome. We arrived a little before 1200 hrs and were happy to wait but it wasn't a problem (no tutting and pointed looking at watches from Robin and Ian). Friendly and helpful, both working hard to keep the site looking nice, clean and tidy. This is a small site a little inland but still handy for visiting places up and down the coast. Camelford itself is a little disappointing with the main A39 running straight through it but there is a Co-op and post office for day to day items. If you do visit, take a walk over to the Bodmin side of the A39 - lots of footpaths and a riverside walk alongside the River Camel. Alternatively, follow the lanes up onto the moors for a change. There is no denying that the dog walk is on the small side but as others have pointed out, there are alternatives. Mixture of grass and hard standing pitches with some seasonal vans. We pitched at the top end of the site and were quite level but you might struggle with a large outfit if you end up by the storage area where it is quite sloping. All in all, for £20.10 a night, we like it. Thanks for a great stay.

Nice site

Not stayed here before and I found it to be a very nice site. It is small but well laid out, quite sloping on the grass pitches but, luckily, I got one of the hardstandings which have been levelled. It is a very peaceful site with lovely views over surrounding countryside. The dog walk is very small but I think this is a necessity due to the constraints of the size of the site - but I found a footpath and field opposite to take the dogs to (via public footpath). Friendly wardens too. A great location from which to explore the North Cornwall coast etc.

Excellent site

Our 5 night stay at Camelford was fantastic. The weather during our stay was not brilliant but it was more than compensated by the hospitality of the camp site management. Robin & Ian were brilliant hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The site is extremely clean and well serviced. The shop offered more than enough essentials. Our dog also enjoyed his holiday there! We were very impressed and look forward to returning. Definitely a 5 star visit.

Second Choice

We stayed here in July whilst walking the South West Coast Path, we really wanted to stay on Trewethet Farm but it was booked so settled on Camelford. The site is really well maintained and the Wardens were very friendly and helpful. The toilet/shower facilities are very old and in desperate need of an upgrade. Views from the site are great. Although on a country lane we found it quite noisy with traffic. Note the Handbook states "High tension power cables cross the site, but not over the pitching area", WRONG, the cables are right over the pitching area and I'm afraid that had we not been able to get a pitch away from these we would not have stayed. The site served its purpose for us but I doubt that we would use it again. Camelford itself was a huge disappointment.
