We have stayed here a number of times and previously awarded a 5 star review. The staff were friendly. The dog pit stop is a great improvement on having to walk up the lane to allow pooches to do their thing. In addition there is now a gate which means dogs can have a little mooch off lead. The gate seemed secure, a simple latch. The shower block is spotless. There is less disturbance from rooks these days as most of the trees have gone. Although personally they didn't trouble me. The pitches are flat and seem to drain reasonably well. There are lovely walks from site around Carn Lidi and the little cove of Porth Melgan is a delight. The ice cream kiosk at Whitesands Beach sells lovely ice cream. So why you may you ask only 4 stars. Well, there is no shop at all. No gas, no chemicals, no milk, no bread - absolutely nothing. (Although you can go next door to the neighbouring site!) I understand that this a permanent state of affairs - not just covid related. I have enquired of caravan club what the situation is and I await their reply. The site is often very windy. Peg your awning down well!
