Gwithian Farm Campsite
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We had an amazing week at Gwithian Farm and agreed it was the best campsite we have ever camped at. The facilities were great, lovely friendly staff, fantastic location and the best pitches ever - very private with planted shrubs used as screening, lots of space so didn't feel hemmed in by neighbouring tents. The on site visits by the fish and chip guy, pizza van and baked goods 3 mornings a week were most appreciated as it meant we didn't have to cook or go out a couple of times and could continue to chill out.
Lovely walk through the dunes to the beach and the onsite rentals of boogie boards and wetsuits meant we could all try our baby surfing skills for the first time.
The only thing I could suggest as an improvement would be the single, ineffective handryer in the ladies loos/shower block - could really do with a couple more that dry your hands properly.
Apart from that, pretty much faultless, would recommend highly to anyone looking for a site in Cornwall.

Just returned from this amazing campsite and cannot rate it highly enough. The staff and management were helpful and friendly and the main facilities all extensive, clean and well run. We had a pitch in the top field with a number of other families with chidren and it was perfect to be able to sit with a glass of wine and watch the kids playing football, riding bikes, generally doing what kids should be doing on a camping trip but all in a well laid out, safe environment.

The pitches themselves are large, level, well drained and seperated by colourful flower and shrub borders to give you a feeling of having your own space despite the size of the site.

The bathroom facilities are really excellent, always clean and hygenic and plentiful enough that I dodn't have to queue for the hot showers, loos or washing up facilities once and the site was clearly at a high occupancy level

Regular evening visits from different catering vans broke up the campsite barbecues when required with a choice of fish and chips, pizza, curry and in the mornings fresh croissants.

The beaches nearby are among the best in the country, if not Europe! We had a dog with us so had to jump in the car for 5 minutes to access the summer accessible dog friendly ones but this was no trouble at all.

All in all, a trip to treasure and we will be booking for next year straight away.

Lovely site, brilliant position, great facilities from guinea pigs to laundry. helpful staff who dealt with my inability to count and book the correct number of nights very well. Also tried gamely (although unsuccessfully) to jump start my defender. Thank you for a lovely stay. One happy teenager and mum! Only one minor issue and it may be a cornwall issue rather than campsite, but wifi is not great. If you needed to rely on it for work you would be in difficulty.

This campsite is set in a small village a few miles from Hayle & St. Ives. The campsite is well set out with wonderfully clean toilet block. There is a small shop which sells the basics, but as Lidl's and Marks & Spencers are a short car ride away it's not a problem. We try and stay at this campsite once a year in the summer holidays. Last year we enjoyed the local food vans that brought fresh fish one night, curry another and a wonderful fish & chip van. Lots of good old fashioned family fun. Had no problems with noisy neighbours after hours - BLISS.

The kids love the fact that the middle of the campsite is a big grassy area that they can all play in - making up their own games. The beach is not too far away - walkable if you don't mind a walk back up hill.

There's nothing fancy about the campsite but is beautiful, well kept and just the right amount of facilities for us and our family.

What an excellent weekend. Really friendly team - we were late to leave site this morning and the people using our pitch after us arrived before we were ready to pack down. The owners were very helpful, didn't rush us out and managed to get the people who we were holding up to go for a beach walk so we could have a bit longer to pack, turning what could have been a little stressful into no bother at all. Thanks guys. Great facilities, easy walk to the beach, feeling jealous of our friends who are still there for the rest of the week :(

This was our 2nd stay here. Our initial incentive was that the site takes dogs. It is 2 minutes from the a30 so is really accessible. We only came half an hour to get here but may well have been a million miles away. The site itself is well maintained and very clean and tidy. The shower block and toilets are great with plenty of cubicles, toilets , sinks and hairdryers. My only slight negative is that they could be a bit more central although they are close enough not to worry too much. Through the back gate is vast amounts of sand dunes to walk with extensive views from Godrevy lighthouse across to St Ives bay. There are a few cafes dotted along the front by the beach and a great pub opposite the entrance. On site shop, freezer area and a variety if catering throughout the week for those who don't want to cook. We squeezed in 3 nights at the end of June which the owners obliged for us. We will definitely return here. Brilliant.
