There really is something simply magical about St Martin's campsite. Admittedly, it has the odds stacked in its favour located on a stunning Scilly island next to an idyllic beach. But it's not only about great location, campsite facilities and space. It's also about those who run it - Ben & Caroline and those who choose to come year in...

Everything about our stay at this great site was wonderful, from the Landrover pick up of luggage at the quayside when you arrive to the baked potatoes from the owner's Aga (which we ate with the most fantastic steak bought from the farm up the road). The owners have really thought about all you need for a stress-free stay, from...

We arrived back a few days ago from this campsite. We have had a great 2 wks here. The location is perfect, very close to the beach and local pub. The local shop is about a 25 min walk away in Higher town however the campsite have a barn where you can charge mobiles etc, freezer packs, purchase eggs,milk, croissant's...

We've just returned home after a few days at St Martins campsite as we needed to stay for four nights as I was competing in the Tresco triathlon. The campsite is lovely, everything is clean and imaculate. Everyone that we met were lovely and friendly. Ben and Caroline are super organised and obviously work very hard to make your stay...

Our first impression of St Martin's Campsite was a memorable one. Ben found us at the top of the island struggling with our heavy bags and insisted we climb into his vintage Land Rover for a ride down to the site. A friendlier, more welcoming campsite host I have yet to meet. He showed us to our pitch and left...

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at St. Martins campsite. (6th - 9th June) After a smooth ride on Scillonian III from Penzance to St. Mary's we caught a small ferry to the beautiful vibrant St. Martins. On arrival at the harbour we were welcomed by Ben & Caroline who's presence is welcoming every day of the stay. Their...

We have just returned from another wonderful week, with great weather. The campsite is incomparable with spotless shower block, lots of space, ever friendly and helpful Ben and Caroline and the glorious beach. The milky way at night, endless bird life, lush sub-tropical plants..the list goes on. The campsite and island are really thriving with the pub doing excellent food...

Just back from four nights at St Martin's campsite and, although we're not regular campers, we're really missing the place. I rarely bother to write reviews but I can't praise this campsite or this location enough. It was our first time on the Scilly isles and, as others have said, the tameness of the birds and the beauty of the...

“Book the campsite early. Reserve tables at island eateries before you arrive as they have limited capacity.”

“The camping fields are extremely spacious and in all the years we have visited we have never experienced any noise either during the day or in the evening. The pitches offer no electricity however the opportunity to re charge modern day technology is available nearby.”
