Peaceful site

We have just had two nights at the very tranquil site. We booked this site as it offered ease of access to visit family locally. It was a superb CL offering all the relevant services, and the site was extremely peaceful, and we were sharing it with all the local wildlife, which was great. As advertised local amenities were close by and the Pandora Inn was only a 20/25 min walk and offered lovely food in a very scenic setting. We shall return .

A great CL

A lovely site with all we needed for a great holiday. The facilities quite adequate with no problems at all. Great walks direct from site to Mylor Bridge (great pasties from local shop), and Pandora Inn about 1 mile and well worth a visit. Surrounding scenery magnificent and Falmouth just a short drive away. Will most certainly be returning.

Disappointed

We specifically booked this site for the views but there were none. The surrounding hedges were well over 6 feet high, and had not been cut for a long time. When we arrived a man was cutting the grass, which was very long, and we spent our time trailing cut grass into the caravan. The site was lovely and peaceful, with a resident pair of pheasants, and lots of song birds. However, the worst part was the septic emptying point. You will need a machete to get in, and I could not even get to the tap in the corner because of an overgrown holly tree. It is such a pity as the location was perfect, and although it is on narrow lanes, the access was not too bad. Looking back at other reviews, it appears it was a nice site, that has recently been neglected.

Perfect!

We found the site very easily, absolutely beautiful, perfectly sheltered but still with lovely views. The site owners are probably the nicest people you could ever wish to meet, such a lovely family run Farm/Barton. The walks are stunning, we cycled the routes and loved it. With two great pubs close by it had everything we were looking for. The site had well spaced pitches, and was lovely and quiet, the field even though no hard standings is very well drained, we arrived after a few days of rain, and we had no problems at all. I would highly recommend this site, but would also like to keep it a secret!

Great Place

A bit of an issue finding the place in the dark but google maps came up trumps. 4G at this CL so plenty of web access! When you get to the CC Sign go right for 100 metres and site is on your right. There is a small arrow on the CC sign but we didn't see this in the dark. A bit sloping as described in the book but this gives views towards Falmouth. Water and electric on all pitches was a bonus. Basic waste disposal but that is all you need. Friendly owners. Great walks. Local beach to launch our dingy. Two pubs within easy walking distance. Will definitely go again!

Disappointed

Booked here for a week in October, our first long time stay in our new MoHo.  We were the only people there except for the last night.  Although the weather was not kind to us as it rained most of the time the site was not much better.  Their web site looks good but the site itself was rather run down with dripping taps and overly long grass.  Blocks are needed and if the grass is not cut when you arrive careful selection of your site is recommended - do a walk about as you may get in but getting out ????  Waste area was extremely basic ( see other reviews).  Pandora Inn great with some lovely sea food.  Walks around the site were super and our two dogs had a great time, especially chasing the pheasants on a empty site.  Overall disappointing!

Disappointing

From the photos, we expected more. We booked at short notice, so was pleased we could get in, but we got hopelessly lost trying to get there, then having got there had it not been for my insistence, my husband would have turned round and come out again. The grass has not been cut in ages and the overall appearance is scruffy. I rang the owner to let him know we had arrived and he told us to come down to the house to pay. The hedge where we were was really high so we had no view whatsoever. Our visit to the Pandora made it for us - food and setting both excellent. The owners are friendly enough but as one comment in the visitors book says -they don't care enough about the site - sadly I agreed.

Quiet Site

We stayed on this site for 3 nights at the beginning of August. There are plenty of walks around the peninsular and also over to Mylor Bridge & Mylor Harbour. We highly recommend a meal at the Pandora Inn, a 15 minute walk away. Closest shop is at Mylor Bridge, a 10 minute walk from site. Grass could do with a cut!

Potentially good site

First the positives:

Each pitch has it's own services, electric & drinking water, although water pressure is low so takes an age to manually fill an aquaroll. The site was very peaceful & quiet. Good walks nearby & near to Penryn & Falmouth.

Negatives:

The owners had no record of our booking (booked more than 1 month in advance) despite having cashed our deposit cheque & we had email communication with them. This meant they were overbooked and over the 5 van rule at the weekend. We had made a very long journey to the site, to arrive & be informed they had no booking was poor. The grass was left particularly long and generally left us feeling that the site wasn't well cared for or maintained. The toilet disposal empty point was dire. A dustbin lid covered the opening over direct access to an open cesspit with no water trap to prevent smells or flies. A very short hose had been supplied for swilling/rinsing your loo which was totally inadequate for an easy rinse. We have caravanned for some 30 years now, this rates as one of the worst emptying points we have experienced. Various people come & go on the site day & night (other than the owners). One chap came most days parking his van whilst he walked his dog. He parked every day very close to our caravan. Others parked across the only entrance blocking access on or off the site some evenings, we're not sure where they were visiting but not the CL. Overall, we would not return unless improvements were made on the chemical waste point and maybe gated access to prevent unwanted 'visitors'. A shame really as it could be a very nice site.

Warning before you book!

A word of warning before you book. Don't get Mathew the owner talking about the Northern Lights, you might get earache! Seriously though ,what a lovely tranquil oasis away from the hurly burly of some sites. We have just spent 5 nights here including through the last "Hurricane". We had the site to ourselves and the wild life we saw was amazing. We were treated to a flock of Pheasants every morning and evening so tame they practically ate out of our hands. We lost count of the species pf birds we saw. The owners have taken the trouble to put a Hut in the field which contains a selection of books, magazines and general local information. They have even supplied a water carrier in case you forget yours! Mathew and his Wife were extremely helpful; and despite the opening comment a delight to talk to. We will be back most definitely. We didn't have time to do all the local walks. Final word....Thank you Mathew for providing this excellent CL for the benefit of the members,look forward to meeting you again Drs John and Sue
