Tranquillity in Cornwall.

We stayed at Camelford for 10 nights at Easter and found that Robin & Ian were welcoming, friendly and helpful from the start. They keep the site immaculately clean and tidy and are always to be seen working in one area or another of the site. The site itself is easily accessible with wonderful views over the valley and is very peaceful and tranquil. The location is perfect for the Camel Trail with Wadebridge 9 miles away and the Bodmin end about 12. Tintagel is 10-15 minutes away by car as is Port Isaac whilst Bude & Padstow can be reached in about 30 minutes. There is a fantastic (but challenging!) coastal walk from Port Quin to Port Isaac which although only just over 3miles needs a good 3 or 4 hours set aside but is well worth the effort with fantastic scenery and cliff top views all along the route. Be warned that good footwear is essential though- no trainers or ballet shoes such as we witnessed!! We will definitely be returning to this site in the near future mainly for the peace and quiet afforded by the site itself. One slight quibble- it could do with a few more hardstandings as there are only 13. All in all a wonderful relaxing break.

Great Location and Excellent Hosts

We are new to caravanning and we were grateful for all the help and advise from Ian and Robin. The site is well organised and scrupulously clean. There is a small dog area, which is just adequate but not really big enough for a run. We made sure our dog was exhausted by the time we returned to the caravan, so he only needed a quick "business trip" before bed. Ian and Robin were exceptionally helpful and keep the site well maintained. Hard standing pitches are generous in size and arranged well to make manoeuvring easy; even for a tyro. I hope to stay here again next season.

Ian & Mel

When we arrived at the camp site we were met by Ian & Robin the wardens with a very friendly welcombe as were new to to the camping scene. They explained every thing we needed to know then came over to check we were all set up and ok and even lent us some cutlery as we forgot ours. The site was clean tidy and seemed to be well organised. We would recommend that if your visiting the area this is one camp site to stay at its a credit to Ian & Robin thank you for a great August bank holiday weekend.

Good week

We have just returned from this site and it is beautifully clean and well kept the wardens were very friendly and helpful the downside was the awful muck spreading that took place whilst we were there it put us off our evening meal so had to eat out it was that bad, also on a family site we were disappointed that there was no play park only a very little used tennis court,so although we. Were pleased with the location and cleanliness we were disappointed with children's facilities..

A great 2 week stay here!!!

We arrived after a very stressful journey to be welcomed by the very friendly wardens. We had a pick of a number of grass pitches and chose the one most suitable to us. We were very lucky with the weather and the staff were friendly and always working on the site. The facilities were well maintained and clean and it is an excellent base for North Cornwall including Boscastle, Tintagel, Padstow and Bude. Very reasonably priced and will definitely use again, hopefully next year!! Thoroughly recommended for a nice quiet break but if you have a family, there are no facilities for children so bare that in mind. Overall, looking forward to staying here again.

Lovely stay at Camelford

Robin and Ian were fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble, they were knowledgeable and patient - we are new to caravanning and had a few issues and they were really helpful. We were booked in for 4 nights and asked if we could stay an extra night, as we were enjoying the surrounding places, they even contacted the next site we were visiting to cancel and then arranged with the next site, after that, to accommodate us over 2 pitches as we had problems unhitching and hitching. They are a credit to the club. There was some traffic noise on the site, if you were sited at the far end of the field, nearest to the road, but don't let this pursuade your decision making. Would visit again, hopefully in the near future.

Great Site for Visiting Crrnwall

Can't praise the site staff, Ian & Robin, too much, their attention to all matters was exemplary and we were made most welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Most basic commodities are kept on site and a well stocked shop/garage is nearby The site is kept immaculate throughout and is a credit to them. Very peaceful and quiet, perhaps not ideal for parents with young children as play facilities are limited. If you are looking for a well placed site for visiting Cornish locations then look no further. Barry & Heather Townsend

Camelford pleasure

The wardens, Robin and Ian, were spot on with their attitude, helpfulness, and care of the site - thank you both. Access to the site in our 7.5m Motorhome was easy. We also took advantage of the club link with Enterprise to hire a car, with 10% discount and free drop off and pick up via Bodmin, which helped us maximise our enjoyment of Cornwall with visits to St Ives, Kynance Cove, Polzeath, Port Isaac and Lanhydrock House to name a few! One of our best holidays ever!
