Nette,zonnige, camping (als het niet regent).Doet denken aan een \'boeren camping\'. Alles kraakhelder, eenvoudig, functioneel verzorgd.Plaatsen over meerdere velden verdeeld.

Great campsite, very well run, clean and welcoming. Had a very enjoyable weeks stay. The pitches are spacious and well maintained. Plenty of room for the children to play with a large grassy area for ball games which was safe and visible from our pitch. Staff are very hardworking and polite. Would definitely return.

A lovely lovely site. Staff very helpful and friendly, pitches perfect, facilities spotlessly clean and modern. A real find and will definitely revisit.

Mooie, rustige en propere camping.
Wie van strand houdt moet wel rekening houden met een fikse (niet ongevaarlijke) wandeling. Wifi is er inderdaad, maar wel betalend.
Uitstekende uitvalbasis voor het westen van Cornwall.

Wer Ruhe sucht, findet sie hier in gepflegter, sauberer Umgebung. Verständigung in Deutsch war schwer. Leute sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Enge Straßen. Haben von hier aus Ausflüge an einem Tag nach St. Michaels Mount, Mousehole, Mamorna, Lands End, Cape Cornwall Zennot und St. Ives gemacht. Das waren 106 km in 3h20min Fahrzeit. Auch Newpwuay ist leicht erreichbar. Wichtig: Ausflüge wegen der engen Küstenstraßen nur mit PKW ausführen. Anfahrt zum Platz mit Wohnwagen über gut ausgebaute Straßen möglich. Geldautomaten-Cashmachin- sind auf Campinglpätzen u. Tankstellen zu finden. Kreisverkehr sind in England sehr verbreitet. Mit Navi kein Problem.
