Lovely site, well kept with a fabulous heated outdoor pool. On booking I was aware this was a site much larger than I would normally choose. So why did I choose it? The pool and it's close proximity to St Ives were the main factor. I cannot fault the cleanliness and facilities, but a large site brought the inevitable hustle and bustle which is to be expected, so for me I did not find it relaxing, there was always some sort of noise going on, whether it be people moving or driving back and to, coming and going, lawns being mowed etc etc which is all to be expected but I felt it was just far too noisy for me. I was also expecting to be able to walk quite easily into St Ives but it was a 20 minutes walk across fields and stiles and very steep coming back up, not suitable for anyone who is not fit and certainly out of the question if you have any walking disability whatsoever, I only did this walk once and then resorted to the bus which is outside the main entrance to the park (£1.50 per person each way). The pool is absolutely gorgeous but again, as it is a big site it was always full with children playing ball so if you want to cool off or do a few lengths you won't be able to do it for the majority of the day, There is an adults only session but only for one hour in the morning (9-10) It's good that children can enjoy their holiday, but it would also have been nice to have been able to go in the pool more often than I did. I would not stay here again only because it was unsuitable for my taste. It's great for families but not for anyone looking for a quiet relaxing holiday.
