We had booked for 6 nights but left after 2 nights as facilities were shut - the shop only opened for a couple of hours in the morning but the shelves were bare with no fresh bread,milk or newspapers - takeaway and games room also closed as I believe was the bar - also the toilet block nearest us to use was being shut within 2 days of our arrival the only one being left open was in the top field along way to trek first thing in the morning.
I did enquire as to when the site closed for season and was informed end of October this was mid September? My gripe being lack of information about these issues on the website before booking - from reading other reviews the best time to stay appears to be August!!
However there are good points the toilet block was very clean [lack of people] hot water a plenty and good fishing lake - also prices reasonable. The walk to the village is a narrow country road which I would not recommend to do in the dark and a 10 min walk to beach ? along a busy main road and the buses are not reliable. Hence we moved and had to pay again to stay at another site. I don't feel the website is a true reflection of the actual site

Went to Mill Park in August and stayed in the bottom non-electric field. We took our dog and he loved it there, the special dog-walking field was great for ball throwing! My boyfriend fished the lake each day and thought it was brilliant and the park was clean and well-kept, and had a really nice feel to it. The shower block was spacious and modern, but the floor was permanently dirty and muddy even after just being cleaned, but this wasn't a major issue as everywhere else was so clean. Our friends bought croissants from the on-site shop two mornings and loved that, and there was a take-away which we'll definitely try next time. The little village is walking distance away and we went to the Ye Old Globe pub for two nights - it is lovely with very delicious food and a lovely atmosphere. We also drove to a pub in the opposite direction (think it was called The Sawmill) and this was also nice but more like a big chain pub. Visited the little village shop and tea rooms, both very nice. This was my first time camping and I loved it - can't wait to go back!!!

This is a great little campsite. Loos/showers are great and really make you feel like you're in the woods. Lovely pond with lots of people fishing too. From the website it looks like there are lots of the little cabins, but in fact there are two! They are very sweet looking though and right by the lake.
The site is well divided and had lots of signs with various rules on. Perfect if you like that kind of thing.
We'd definitely go there again with our kids

Really lovely quiet campsite, even over the bank holiday weekend it was peaceful. We stayed in the non electric bottom field and had a great time. Spacious pitches. Good facilities however maybe they could keep the toilet/ shower blocks a bit cleaner. Even straight after cleaning there was muddy water all over the floor so think this should have been mopped up really. We would definitely go back to this campsite.

The rural setting and friendly locals help to provide a great camping experience. The staff are very friendly and the local pub provides an enjoyable atmosphere. We stayed for 3 nights and loved the surrounding area and its rural location and its rugged coast line. The facilities are good and has a great retro arcade.

We have just had a brilliant 8 days at Mill Park in the camping pod. The pod itself is a little compact and bijioux, but great if youy cant be bothered with the tent!!!! We were told by the owner to bring our gazebo which was brilliant for cooking and sitting out.
The pod overlooked the fishing lake and was a beautiful view. The shower block we used by the non electric was the best I have ever used camping - large cubicles with powerful red hot showers day and night.
On site we used the bar which was beautifully done out with a nice relaxed feel. The take away also served well on nights we did not want to cook. I had a massage on site - what a find on a tranquil campsite, a beauty room and it was fabulous. Little on site shop with all the essentials morning papers and even fresh cooked croissants.
The Old Globe at Berrynarbor was only a ten minute walk - a truly quaint village with great staff and food.
All in all a great stay where nothing was too much trouble for the owners - a lovely safe site for the children, relaxed and a great time. Top marks for all there hard work and we will definately be back next year.

Room Tip: plots 1 - 4 near the on site shop are the largest tent plots they do. take a gazebo if your in the...

Me and my family have been going to Mill Park for around 5 years now and we are never disappointed. It is always clean and the staff are always friendly. The bar and family room is really nice and the onsite takeaway is very tasty.

There is a lake in the middle of the park which is really nice to walk around and the family of owls in the area are really nice to listen to in the evening.

We have just returned from 6 nights there and really enjoyed it. Cant wait to go back next year.

Room Tip: If you want a break away from all technology and day to day activities, stay in the bottom field.
