Laut Campingführer müsste das ein idyllischer Platz sein. Darum sind wir hingefahren. ABER: Man kann nur mit dem Auto den Platz verlassen, zu Fuß ist das lebensgefährlich. Die weitere Umgebung ist traumhaft schön, aber nicht von diesem CP aus! Es gibt keinerlei Einkaufsmöglichkeiten oder Pubs in zumutbarer Nähe (Von wegen \"in unmittelbarer Umgebung\"!). Die Sanitäranlagen sind eine Zumutung und Großbritanniens nicht würdig.
Fazit: Nie wieder!

Kleiner Campingplatz, der meiner Meinung nach geschlossen werden müsste. Die Sanitäranlagen sind unzumutbar, der Putz bröckelt von den Wänden, es riecht unangenehm und wirkt unhygienisch.
Die Lage direkt an der Straße ist auch nicht besonders.

Good site near Helston from which to explore the Lizard and further afield to Truro, Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan etc. Site very quiet and peaceful but there is some road noise from the main road to the Lizard right outside. Plenty of bird live nevertheless.
The site is not near any footpaths and you can\'t walk to Mullion Cove as it says in the guide book which is a shame.
