Good for families

Wonderful location

This is a great site, in a fabulous location with wonderful views across to Godrevy Head and St. Ives. It can be a bit exposed if the wind gets up, but that is the trade-off! Bring storm straps if you have an awning. The site is well placed for access to mid and West Cornwall. Porthtowan and Perranporth are very close and both excellent beaches. You can walk from the site to the coast path which will get you into St. Agnes and Chapel Porth. The site is probably not so good for families as it has no toilets or showers, but that means it is generally a quiet site. St. Agnes is a lovely village with more of a permanent population than places like Perranporth, so it has some character of its own. There is a small business that sells fresh fish on the road down to Chapel Porth which is highly recommended. The Everington pasties from the shop in the village near the Railway Arms are excellent and the bakery in Churchtown is very good. The access road is basically single track with some places where you can pass a car coming the other way and you are strongly advised not to arrive before 1.00 pm (you will not be admitted to the site anyway before then) because you are likely to encounter a caravan or motorhome leaving the club site or the commercial site next door. Meeting another caravan on that road is definitely not recommended - one of you will have to reverse! I don't know why the Club does not put this in the book. The pitches are all grass and, to be honest, some are in need of levelling and maintenance in the winter (and have been for some years - CAMC please take note!). You will definitely need levelling blocks - high ones one some pitches - and your awning base may not be very flat or level. Some pitches down by the hedge along the road are more sheltered, but have no views and get some road noise. The wardens, Viv and Ray, are great - very friendly and helpful, as are the reserve wardens, Billy and (I forget his wife's name). There is wifi (now free), but it is appallingly slow, and if you have a reasonable data allowance on your phone, you should get a good signal from the Four Lanes mast on the hill to the south-west that you can see from the site and I find that the mobile data from that is far better. I even managed a work Teams meeting using mobile data during my stay! The digital TV signal is very strong from that mast.
