A 5 star caravan & camping park set in beautiful woodlands, overlooking Mevagissey Bay, next door to the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall. Light on crowds but abundant in nature and a place to enjoy a relaxing, quiet and intimate holiday with family and friends.

We booked this trip knowing everywhere was still under covid restrictions and the site would have no facilities apart from access to fresh drinking water and to be able to dispose of our toilet and waste water. Check in was easy and a small map of the site showed us where our booked pitch was situated. The camp is immaculate. The pitches were well kept, the site litter free, and we felt safe at all times. The lady in reception told us if we wanted to walk into Mevagissey a lane out of the site would take us straight into town. We would then be able to get a bus or taxi back. As it was nearly 5pm after we got checked in and settled we decided to walk down the lane to Mevagissey, get a bag of chips and perhaps a pintand then a bus home. At the top of the lane a sign said 1 1/4 miles to the town so off we set. On reaching town a bus was parked up with the driver having a cigarette. We enquired about the bus to Heligan and were told the bus there stops at 6pm when the gardens close. Ok it was a taxi then. We had a stroll round the town and were dismayed to find all public toilets were closed and locked. We were also dismayed to find all the pubs were shut, probably because they did not have gardens for customers to sit in. This was not good as the wife needed the toilet. The fish and chips were very good and after eating them on a bench overlooking the harbour we went in search of a taxi. A big sign said " Mevagissey Cars, your local taxi service". We phoned the mobile number which went straight to voicemail. We said where we were waiting and where we wanted to go, and asked to be rung back. A week and a half later we are still waiting. So we had to walk back up the lane, mostly uphill, the 1 1/4 miles back to the site. Next day we decided to visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Normal entry price is £17.50 per adult but on arrival at the site we were given a code which allowed us 20% off so we got in for £28. The gardens were literally a 5 minute walk from the site. We spent a lovely 4 hours walking the gardens and could have stayed longer but our feet hurt from the walk last night. Overall we had a lovely couple of days on the site. I only have a couple of points to mention. 1st. The chemical toilet and waste water drain in enclosed with a wooden fence. We were able to empty the toilet but could get the van nowhere near the waste water drain because of the fence. And 2nd. On leaving the site the boards telling arrivals they have reached the site actually block any vision of the road so we had to stick the nose of the van out into the road before we could see if anything was coming, which could be dangerous.

Our favourite site. Such a gem. Lovely staff. Pitches all good. Some have views down the valley to the sea. Immaculate grounds. New shower and toilet block will enhance the camping experience. Easy access to surrounding beaches. We use our electric bikes most of the time. Off road cycling and walking. Heligan Gardens adjacent to site with cafe, restaurant, Lobbs farm shop. Site has small shop too. Can't wait to return.

This is an immaculate and well organised site. Very helpful and friendly staff. Basic shop at reception, toothpaste etc, probably not enough for a meal. No toilets or shower when we visited but new block under construction looks impressive. 2 portaloos meantime. Path all the way into town, 15 minutes on a bike

You can choose either to have views over the countryside and sea, or you can be in the sunshine. Most pitches are on a slope, but there are some levelled pitches available. During our stay, the toilet and shower block was still being built, so we had to be self contained. Very clean and Covid aware. Nothing too much trouble for the staff, who were very friendly. Across the road you will find the entrance for Lost Gardens and a wonderful Farm shop (Lobbs). Very good paths / cycle tracks to Mevagissey and Pentewan. Mevagissey is worth a visit, but we would not recommend Pentewan.
