We spent 6 nights at this CL at the start of September 2104 and despite it's location we were the only ones onsite for that time. Initially I'd been a little put off by the directions “care required in places”. However the site is just 0.5 mile off the main A30 and although the lane is quite twisty in places there are a number of wider areas and passing places.  We've been to a number of CL's with much more challenging access than this one where no mention has been made in the book. This is a basic CL with a small field surrounded by mature trees.  The field is split into two paddocks with the CL in one half and a few sheep in the other half.  It looks as though the paddocks may be rotated from time to time with the sheep serving as grass cutters.  The grass was not cut short but was not particularly long either and the ground was firm and caused no issues for our 8m, 4.25T motorhome.  There is a centrally locacted water tap (in each paddock) and a basic brick built shed containing a toilet for CDP use.  There are no electric hookups but if, like us, you are electrically independent then that is no problem.  The owners farm is a short distance away but he is very laid back about payment and we didn't actually see him until our third morning. The site is about 5 miles from Penzance which means you can reach Lands End within about 30 minutes and about the same time to reach Truro in the other direction.  If is far enough from the A30 that there is little or no road noise and the lane outside the CL only sees the occasional car or tractor passing.  The railway line is about 400 yards away but the trains are quite infrequent and caused no problems to us. In summary, this is a quiet peaceful site which to my mind is clearly underrated. It is well located for visiting much of the south west of Cornwall.  If the lack of EHU's doesn't bother you then it is a bargain site at just £5/night.
