The main feature of this site has to be the superb view, but it's also to be recommended for ease of access. Although close to the A39, it's far enough away for the main road not to be a problem. There's a big supermarket a few minutes drive away and all the facilities of a fair-sized town also nearby. The site's elevated position means that the 10 minute ride to the Camel Trail is steeply downhill, so unless you are super-fit, you'll probably have to walk your bike at least part-way back up to the site. We were there early season and had problems with the gas water heater in our van not staying alight because of the wind - next time we'll bring a small windbreak. Drinking water pressure quite low, which could be a problem when site full. Pitch size is more than adequate - pitches are 12 metres long with a 3 metres between pitches - all marked by ropes. Field was mown while we were there.
The view to Padstow is still there but the field is now fenced in half and with the lower half out of bounds. Each pitch is marked with small rope fences and only about 6ft apart so the pitching area is actually about 0.25 acres. The owner allocates your pitch. Luckily the site was not full when we were there because the pitching would be a little tight if all 5 were occupied with a caravan and awning. This is not what we expected on a CL without electric, which normally means few constraints on where you choose to pitch.
This is a very basic CL with a stunning view! It is a huge field for a CL, but motor vans may prefer to stay at the top of the field where it is flat, and the view is better. There is another club field next door, but no problem. Access from the main road is simple. The local pub is just a minute's stroll away. This is a great site for the camper who can do without mains power. The sunsets and views of the boats on the estuary are worth every penny of the low price!
