We had booked for almost a week but decided to come home after two nights as we didn’t feel comfortable at the site with a toddler. This was not really something the owners could control as the atmosphere was mostly created by the other campers. As the only young family with a

Hi Sonya and Gerry! Thank you for leaving such a great review of Polmanter! Ria and Gareth are indeed stars, and Gareth and Rhea are still hard at work, so I’ll pass on your kind words. We’re looking into the WiFi as one of our winter projects, so thanks for the feedback. If you’d like to pick a particular pitch for your next stay, have a look at the interactive map on our website. This lets you check the availability of specific pitches, or you could phone us to find out which ones have the best sea views. See you again next time! Becki and the Polmanter team

Hi could you tell me which pitches have a sea view please
The top pitches which are gravel hardstanding all have sea views these are the highest priced pitches and are booked quickly, alot of others also have sea views and it wouldn't bother us if we didn't have a view as the site is stunning, best thing to do is ring them and im sure they will help you. Whatever pitch your on you will love this site its one of the best weve stayed on and weve been touring alot of years.

Hi yes dry dogs are allowed in the conservatory and with windows in full view of the pool you can see what your children are doing. Hope this helps.
