Lovely site. Made to feel very welcome on arrival and has a good relaxed atmosphere.Trudy made sure we were settled in and came around to say good bye when we left. Had no probs with site entrance at all.If you like walking get an OS map of the area and make up your own walks.Walked from site to Penzance 7.5 miles all on back roads. Stayed off footpaths as of the wet ground but only met a couple of cars.Then caught bus back.Walk to St Ives is easy to do. 3 places to get a drink and something to eat. Balnoon Inn ( I would give this one a miss unless you like being treated badly)The Countryman Hotel which is a little bit further down the hill.The best place for food is the Halsetown inn.Lovely pub with good food and even better beer.Trudy will show you the footpath to the pub.Takes between 10 to 15 mins to walk to but well worth it.We will be going back for another stay.

The owner Trudi was welcoming and friendly on our arrival, she pointed out the area and several aspects regarding the CL and various points of interest. Trudi also advised us about issues with her elderly dog that had a tendency to use the CL field as his toilet. She would clear any mess when necessary and would do a regular inspection. Though this is not entirely satisfactory, the dog was there before the CL was set up. Because we were made aware of this issue it did not cause us any problems and in our eyes it is little different to dog owning club members who let their animals run free on sites. Ideally no dogs should be allowed to run free on any CL or Club Site but at present this is not the case. We had no access problems to the CL however the access lane is narrow like many in Cornwall. There is a footpath at the back of the site that leads directly to the local pub some 300 to 400 yards away; nothing was blocking this route on our visit in August 2012. Though the pub is close it is not close enough to cause any problems on site ( I.e. No noise etc.). The site is in fact very quiet and peaceful. There is no hard standing but the field is surprisingly firm and we had no problems with our 3 ton motorhome. For walkers, turn right directly on leaving site and following the narrow lane, then take signed footpaths, plus other lanes to get to Carbis Bay, takes about 30 minutes. From Carbis Bay you can then walk to St Ives via the coastal path route. O/S Map is handy
