Carnon Downs Club Site
Log in to write a review
Had a 12 night stay in May. Site well maintained and flat. Split into several distinct areas, each area like a small site in its own right which added to the peacefully atmosphere. Very good location for exploring in all directions - the North West coast, the South East coast, or the Lizard. Various food vans on site most nights, so good choice if you want to avoid too much cooking. The only downside was that rubbish bins and CDPs were less numerous than is normally the case on club sites, it was a bit of a trek.
This is a wonderful site. Well spaced pitches, most with own picnic bench!! Toilet, shower and all other facilities spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and accommodating. As an affiliated site it is very individual with nothing in the Caravan and Motorhome Club to match. Now it is no longer affiliated we hope it does not change as its petfect as it is
Having toured England Scotland and Wales extensively over the past 12 years staying only on Caravan Club and affiliated sites we are convinced that for us Carnon Downs is the best site on the circuit. We stay on the same pitch each year something not possible with the club but then every pitch is more than adequately spaced out and immaculately maintained. The four shower blocks and facilities especially at this difficult time are also immaculate and cleaned constantly for which we say a great thank you to Simon and the ladies in his team. Just coming out of isolation and feeling completely safe was very important to us and they certainly achieved that. The location of the site is also great only 40 minutes from the Lizard point and St Michael's mount. 25 minutes from St.Ives and with the Roseland Peninsular only 10 minutes via the King Harry Car Ferry Trelissick Gardens (Nat. Trust) are 5 minutes drive and walking the coast path or the beautiful Fal River Estuary means that walkers are really spoiled for choice. Truro with its cathedral are also worth a visit for shoppers and town lovers so all in all a great site in a great location with brilliant ,helpful staff .
This is one of our favourite caravan club sites. It is a very nice and very well run site having great facilities including a nice cafe and well stocked shop. There is a bus to Truro outside the site, just over the roundabout, across the road. It is about 3 miles into the city centre of Truro, which is a lovely place to visit and Falmouth is close by which is also a nice seaside town. We have stayed here twice now and will definitely be staying here again very soon.
what a wonderful site, we originally booked for 3 nights mid August on a touring trip, but the start of our trip had to be cancelled due to an illness. Instead we booked a full 7 nights at short notice for rest and recuperation. The staff accommodated our change of plans without quibble, unfortunately when we arrived, our newly allocated standard pitch was occupied. Again without fuss the owners upgraded us to a fully serviced pitch without charge or fuss. The pitches are pretty level although some may need the odd levelling block, depends on how fussy you are I suppose! There is plenty of space around the pitches and excellent dog walking area's including a perimeter walk through wooded area as well as the 7 acre field, although it would be nice to have some dog waste bins around the site rather than have to place it in your own rubbish bins. On site facilities are superb and well kept, laundry facility at reasonable cost, good hot showers/ family bathrooms etc. the Motorhome service point is convenient and easy to line up for filling/ emptying and also has a sheltered and clean elsan/chemical waste disposal point. There is a nice children's play area with climbing frames and other things to keep the kids entertained as well as a football/sports pitch for the more energetic. In reception area is a café/bar which does Cornish pasties to order at any time of the day (when open)and they are delicious ie we arrived at 2pm ordered the pasties for 5pm they were there ready and hot exactly to the minute. needless to say we booked pasties a few times! there are also visiting food wagons such as fish and chips, rice and Asian style etc. The nearest shop is a small well stocked Spar in the village of Carnon Downs which is a pleasant 1/2 mile walk. There is a bus stop directly outside the site which goes to Falmouth (U1 Bus) £9 adult return, to get to Truro you have to cross the main road and walk into the top end of Carnon Downs village and get the U1 bus at the Forge (drop off point when returning from Falmouth) which is £5.40 return. Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed or stay and would recommend this site. We will return for further visits which should be recommend enough!
Super schöner Campingplatz. Grosse Parzellen mit Frisch-/ Abwasser und Stromversorgung. Park ähnlich angelegt. Sehr ruhig und doch zentral gelegen. Ideal um Cornwall zu erkunden. Pizza / Sushi / Fish & Chips abwechslungsweise auf dem Platz. Zudem kann man Brötchen bestellen und regionale Produkte kaufen. Sehr freundliches Personal.Gerne wieder.
As many others have said, this is definitely the best site ever. We stayed late May, early June... just a few days after they opened the café/wine bar. Everything about this site is first class.
Although a long way to travel from East Yorkshire - it was well worth it! This site sets the standard towards which all others ought to strive. We stayed, for two weeks in The Paddock, which was a delightful spot, well away from any traffic noise. We received a warm and friendly greeting on arrival - mirrored by all the staff with whom we came into contact during our stay. The pitches are huge and well laid out and the immaculate state of the grounds is a credit to the unobtrusive staff who keep the place looking delightful. The toilet blocks - with individual shower rooms with toilet and basin really demonstrate what can be achieved with a little bit of thought for what visitors want and again, their cleanliness was a credit to the staff who keep them that way. One interesting point - and a bone of contention with many CAMC site users - despite there being no speed limit signs and only a few speed bumps around the Reception area - everyone seemed to stick to a 5mph limit when driving around the site. Probably something to do with everyone respecting their surroundings! Throughly recommended site and one which we would definitely use again.
This site is a really nice place to stay, the pitches are large, the facilities are very well maintained, the individual shower room/toilet/basin are a great idea, the dog run has got to be one of the largest I have seen one very big open field. The site is ideal for exploring Cornwall, being the owner of a large motorhome we hired a car to do our exploring, great local pubs to eat at, a big thank you to the boys at Enterprise Car hire in Truro, they came and picked me up from site and dropped me off when we were done, so easy!
