Well located

Stayed here in September (caravaner). Neat and tidy, well kept site by the very friendly wardens. Reminded me of the French Vendee coastal sites because some of the pitches are under pine trees. Very well located for visits to the various towns and attractions of West Cornwall. Only 3 miles miles to the railway station at Erth where you can park and ride for St Ives. Great beaches nearby for body boarding. I recommend nearby Praa Sands, has very easy access to beach from the car park for only £3 a day. If you pitch near the approach road expect some noise at certain times of the year early morning onwards from fast moving tractors.

An absolute gem

So glad we booked this site for our holiday. Gary and Debbie are fantastic wardens and so friendly. We arrived and immediately felt at home, so much so that we extended for a few days and Debbie organised it all, including changing the booking for the next site we were going to. The site is located just inland from Marazion and is beautiful, peaceful and sunny. We followed the instructions on the website to get there and arrived no problem. There are a couple of pubs at the nearby village of Goldsithney which seemed to be very busy so probably quite good, although we ate in the van each night. There is a fish and chip van which comes twice a week and had delicious, locally caught fish. The on-site shop is small but very well stocked and we bought local eggs there, as well as fruit scones. We cycled everywhere while we were there (and believe me, I am no cyclist). It is very easy to get to Marazion on a quiet country lane from the site, and then you can pick up the cycle route to Penzance and beyond. The beach at Marazion was very nice and we had a lovely light lunch at The Terrace in Penzance one day, and a delicious cream tea and visit to the Tremeneere Sculpture Gardens another. Massive thanks to Gary and Debbie, we loved it.

A Little Gem

What an amazing well kept and maintained site this is. Access to the site could be described as interesting during busy periods but even with our large car/caravan outfit we had no issues, even when we met the tractor and trailer. The welcome by Debbie and Gary was informative and genuine giving reminders about the site not having a toilet block or other facilities. Signage about Covid-19 and the amended rules were clearly visible and again explained during our check-in. All pitches will require levelling and blocks will be required on most especially in the Paddock, however, as seasoned ralliers this posed no real issue. Not that we have any children in our party but I have noticed someone moaning about children playing. To be honest, yes there was a number of young people riding bikes and playing, but isn't that what young people do, especially during school holidays?? We didn't see any falling out and everyone appeared to be happy and having a good time, which to be fair during these current challenging times is really important. Located over the road is a small wood and track with lots of paths and walkways leading off, ideal for dog walking or just helping to overcome any little over indulgence one may have. Mobile and internet signal is not great on the site which for us is important as needing signal for work which is why sadly we would not return. If you want a great site with access to the south west or the south west then this little beauty is well worth a visit and is our circumstances change we would return.

Great location with lovely woodland dog walks close to site

Our first visit to this club site. The site was clean and well maintained. Set close to woodland which was great to walk our dogs. Site location was good for visiting St Michael's Mount, Long Rock Beach and Porth Kidney Beach in Lelant. The big disappointment for us was the total lack of peace and quiet, the site was overrun with noisy children constantly cycling round the site shrieking and shouting, up to ten children at one point and late into the evening - every evening. Everybody wants an enjoyable holiday and most people work hard for their time away, but clearly parental supervision or control was zero on this site, very selfish indeed. If we ever revisit this site, it will be when the children are back at school, peace and quiet will be guaranteed then.

Absolutely Fantastic Place

We stayed here 4 days. Received a warm welcome. Site has very good access. Site Management Garry and Debbie are very friendly and welcoming. Area has plenty of places to see and is interesting. There is a rear lane walk into local village and pub. Great place to stay . Would return no issues. Fish and Chip van Thursday and Saturday which is a nice treat. Great base for Marazion Penzance St Ives The lizard and Lands End. Lovely site for couples dogs and families.

Fabulous peaceful site with fantastic wardens

We ventured down to Cornwall in early July as we decided to keep a 21 night booking at Marazion that we booked in February. The site is small and quiet and does not have a toilet block, It has several pitching areas ranging from the paddock to pitches where it feels like you are the only ones on site. Reassuringly, all measures are in place for a safe stay. If you want peace and quiet and a great location in West Cornwall, then this site is for you. If you want a Bar, Restaurant, Swimming pool, or entertainment, these are not available on site, though they are all available nearby in Goldsithney, Marazion or Penzance where all the major supermarkets are also located. There is an excellent Fish and Chip van that called on site on Thursday and Saturday during our stay. What really sets this site apart are the fantastic wardens. Gary and Deborah (with help from Freddie the dog) who are always there to make sure that everyone has the best holiday. Whether it be stocking essentials like milk and ice cream(!) to still being there to help out very late in the evening when new arrivals have had trouble on the M5 and are delayed. We will certainly be back.

Excellent site

We stayed here for 3 nights in our motorhome. It’s a beautiful site in a glorious peaceful woodland setting. The woods over the road were great for walking the dog and the whole site was very tranquil. Mounts Bay is my favourite part of Cornwall and we hired a car for a couple of days so we could explore. Porthleven, Mousehole and Marazion itself are all within easy reach and well worth a visit. Lands End is not far away but too commercialised for us but Cape Cornwall is glorious and highly recommended. The wardens on the site are fantastic, very friendly and extremely helpful. All the right precautions are being taken regarding Covid-19 but not to the extreme that we weren’t made to feel welcome. We will definitely go back.

Marazion Caravan Club Site

We were given an arrival time of 9.00am, 4th July 2020, unfortunately we arrived at 8.30am, and gates were locked, we were refused access to site despite on the Access Statement its states there are was two spaces for new or late arrivals, but these spaces are within the site, beyond the locked gate, the wardens said they could not unlock gate before 9am, we were told to park down narrow lane in lay-by and wait, which we did, but to get out layby we had to reverse back up narrow lane, ok if you have camper van - but reversing caravan not such great fun. Anyway we eventually got onto our pitch which was ok, cant comment on facilities as there is none, and did not use site shop. Paid £11.00 to get onto Wifi which was very poor, so that was waste of money. Drive through Goldsithney very interesting as locals park both sides of road, and with traffic calming one had to be very patient, and give way more than usual, especially as some of the locals obviously don't like caravans being dragged through their village, shame they was not better access route.

Lovely quiet site.

This is a really lovely quiet site near Marazion so perfect for St.Michaels Mount. Being between the Lands End and Lizard peninsulars there is a good choice of days out. We did lots of cliff top walking, with fabulous aquamarine seas and rocky coves. We also went to see a play at the Minack Theatre, which is a magical setting. Only gave 4 stars for facilities because there aren’t any. I like it that way and modern caravans have full facilities. Gave 4 stars for children as I wouldn’t want a van full of children if no washblock personally. We pitched in a big long field, again our preference to being in what can often be a big car park. All in all lovely site, beautiful area, friendly wardens. We will return.

peaceful and well kept - lovely staff

we stayed 3 nights here in order to visit Lands End and St Micheals Mount. The staff were so lovely, very welcoming and easy going. The site was really well kept. we were able to select our own pitch. the site is next to Friendly Forest which has loads of pathways to explore, great for kids and adults alike. We managed to walk to St Michaels Mount from the site with our young family, the lanes are really quiet so was pretty safe, and at just 2 miles away our 6 year old managed it (while picking blackberries the whole way). We had forgotten our deck of cards and one of the staff gave us an old deck they had, how amazingly kind (there was one missing but we just made it from the box - haha).
