The site is clean and tidy wardens keep grass and hedges in perfect condition, dog walks above average, toilet and shower blocks best layout of all the sites we have used, caravan club officials should take a visit and implement across the club sites, our only grip was the new part of the park we stayed in, the roads are all covered with sharp stones, no tarmac so when you need to empty and refill water for the caravan it makes it very noisy and bumpy rolling over the stones, I ended up walking on the grass every time to keep the noise down as trying to not disturb anyone, and pegging on the hardstanding areas, take long pegs because when you get them threw the stones the sub base underneath is very soft almost sandy, not great for holding down your awning. Location is perfect for exploring Cornwall, and found a gem of a beach called Loe beach, get there early on sunny days as parking is limited, dogs are allowed, great cafe next to beach and the lads who hire the boats and kayaks are really helpful, prices very reasonable,we ended up spending two days at the beach great laid back atmosphere very friendly place, everywhere is in easy reach of this site, I would recommend this site dispite our little grips.
I would say that thiere is not a better site and location than this one. And the staff and owners are also top notch.
The site is exceptionally clean and tidy. Facilities 2nd to none.
The location means that all of Cornwall within easy reach. So many fantastic walks from the site itself, too. Great for us and the dog and always a nice pub lunch along the way. The onsite dog walk also the best I have known. My early morning walk being a good half hour before the day even started.
This year, our 3rd time, was sad that my mother-in-law passed away whilst we were there and we had to leave early. I only mention this as the response from the owners and staff was exceptional and quite emotional. We will be eternally grateful for this.
If there is a downside to the site, it is that it is hard to get a pitch. You have to book well in advance (a year etc). And they are genuinely booked (with a deposit) not just grabbed by people who might want it. The price the owners have to pay for being so great.
