Peaceful and Relaxing

This site is just off a main road so very easy to access. Even though I was there during the summer holidays it was never fully booked. Everyone was nicely spread out and whilst there were a couple of families near me they weren't noticeable. The site is 6 miles from the coast and at least 2 miles from any of the main attractions in the area and without means of transport would be difficult to get to. The bus service is irregular at best. There are foot trails nearby. The staff were very friendly and effective and the facilities - if a little dated - were kept clean.

Excellent site

This is our third visit to this site and as always is very well kept. The toilets. Showers are also clean and tidy. Not much else you can say about it, and always look forward to coming. The site wardens are excellent and nothing is to much trouble I would give them and the site ten out of ten

Very warm welcome

Spent 8 nights here recently, extending our original booking by 2 nights. A lovely peaceful, central site. Yes the toilet block does need updating but it is kept immaculate by Ian and Robin, the disabled toilet/shower is in a portacabin not ideal but very large and more than adequate. The flower beds and grass were being mowed and weeded whilst we were there and the wardens seemed always busy doing something but never too busy for a chat. The location just off the main road means easy access with no narrow lanes and there are a few local shops, a co-op and a lovely fish and chip shop very close. All in all a great site and we will make another visit soon.

Nice clean site

We stayed here in June for 14nights, it's a ideal site for North Cornwall, but it takes just under 2hours to reach Lands End which is very rugged and beautiful at the same time is expensive to park £6!! Boscastle is lovely with a great Nat Trust coffee shop, all around the coast is fabulous there's so much to see. The site is looked after by Ian and Robin, who do a great job keeping it cleans, but the club does need to update the toilet block, we had a fabulous sunset every night which was fab. There is no children's area and only a small dog area.

What a great find

Not sure why this site isn't fully booked more of the time. It's quite, very well kept with all the facilities you'll need. The couple of minus points are: If your at the bottom of the site its a fair trek to the only chemical disposal point. Some of the pitches require more then your normal levelling blocks, but the wardens keep planks of wood for just such occasions. In short I would fully recommend, just bare in mind that there is no play area for children. Enjoy :)

Great position for easy access to many parts of Cornwall

We specifically chose this site for easy access to many different and beautiful parts of Cornwall and were not disappointed. The site made our trips out to many different locations really easy and felt it was a great choice. Both Ian & Robin who run the site were very helpful and welcoming and the facilities very clean and well maintained and the site is both quiet and well placed to catch the sun. As we felt our motor home wasn’t suitable for exploring the lanes and villages in the area we arranged a hire a car from Enterprise Rentals, who were very helpful and collected us from the camp site to take us to nearby Bodmin to collect the car. We subsequently moved onto a different site in Cornwall and returned the car to Bodmin at the end of our holiday which worked really well. The staff at Enterprise couldn’t have been more helpful and we wouldn’t hestitate to make the most of our holiday by the use of a hire car in the future.

The ideal site

We have just returned from a two week break in Camelford. We rarely revisit a site as we like to travel to different areas of the country, but this site is just so peaceful and quiet that you are relaxed as soon as you arrive and feel you must come back again to recharge your batteries. Robin and Ian keep this site immaculate and are so helpful. Long may this site remain as it is now - the ideal site!

Lovely site, shame about the neighbours

Thanks to Robin & Ian for a well kept and well tended site. You can't ask for more really. Just outside the site, the hedgerows were packed with colour, further afield the Cornish lanes and coast provide magnificent views with their spectacular vistas. The NT and EP sites were beautiful, particularly Lanhydrock. Anyone visiting should take time to visit Davidstow Moor, the highest operational RAF base in it's time, and the museum. Roughtor, with access to Brown Willy is a wonderful place to explore the top edge of Bodmin Moor, only a few miles from the site. Thanks for a wonderful few days visiting Cornwall. We particularly enjoyed Trebarwith Strand, rugged when the tide was in, tranquil when it was out.

Ideal Cornish base

I agree wholeheartedly with the previous review. But would like to add that the shower block is very tired, the warden's do their best , and it is kept immaculate, but I think the club should put it on its to do up list. The hard standings are all in the middle, when we arrived there was plenty to choose from, which was a blessing as we were at the end of the Easter deluge. There is plenty of grass pitches all around which were mostly empty, giving us a good sense of space, all in all a nice friendly quiet site. Camelford 'town' is a bit run down, we went exploring and found it quite shabby. So use this as a good base for exploring Cornwall's gems, for which there are many.

well located site

We picked Camelford for an Easter break based on its central location and the previous good reviews. We were not disappointed, the site is beautifully kept by Ian and Robin, despite the damp start to the season that they have had to cope with.They are extremely welcoming and have a good knowledge of the local area. It is a fairly quiet site but plenty of North Cornwall's treasures are within an easy drive, particularly some lovely coast path walks. There are some good restaurants/tea rooms close by. I marked it down for families simply because there is no play area.
