Stayed at rose cliston in august during the boardmasters festival. The site was perfect for us as its only two miles to newquay centre. We had the choice of this and smugglers which I have heard numerous bad things about. Had a bit of trouble booking the place as we booked for myself and partner i a camper van and another 8 people in tents. We were told that electric was fine for us and we would all be pitched together. However when my partner rang again just to confirm things they said it would be a problem and just made everything feel a big hassle to them. On arrival some members of staff seemed quite pushy and were very particular about how and where we pitched (we were all together and had electric in the end). It all seemed a bit serious but now I see that they need to be to keep a campsite aimed at groups undercontrol which it was!
The site has a convenient small shop witch sells quick take away food. The shop sells cheap supermarket food at massive prices though so beware.
The bar was good to have but it was empty....
Now the worst part.
The toilet block was absolutely awful at all times. For 2 whole days the sink in the men's was filled with sick! They stank and were never cleaned and there was rarely toilet paper.
The shower block was also very dirty. Mud and grass everywhere and in the cubicles there were empty beer cans haha. There is really no point going to this site unless you are group camping in my opinion as there are plenty of sites near by that far exceed this.
However for a good time with mates and if you don't mind roughing it a little bit in the toilets and showers then the site is overall a relaxed, convinient and good value for money campsite.
I will be back for boardmasters next year
