There may be only a positive side to it: the fields size (2) which are big enough to allow a quieter camping experience; however, all negatives override this by far; as National Trust members, we booked for three nights expecting to find a campsite offering more than any other we've been to; it was terrible: to begin with,, showers that are communal, for both men and women, are 'pay for' : while £0,20p is not much money to ask for, on the other hand you have 4 minutes to shower unless you want to top up to literally have drops of water on you: basically the water is scarce ; the facilities are disgusting, made of old concrete and allocated all in one block ( toilets, showers, and a utility room) without a minimum of shelves to pose your stuff( you wouldn't want to leave towels, tooth brush or anything else on that floor !); the rubbish bins are by the entrance to the farm which sits just between the two fields; we were given a pitch in the rear field and the amount of wasps on that side was not occasional.

The camp site itself has nothing to offer in its total isolation from the rest of the world; no convenient shop or coffee bar for the basic needs.The nearest town is 10 minutes drive away.

In overall, we paid more than we did in other campsites, where the level of facilities was what you would expect from a basic campsite.

Morale: we left one day earlier as the weather was also forecast to change for the worse: we could not make another night stay; we paid £48; to make it worse, we also booked a pitch with electric hook which we could not use; It turned out we would need an adaptor; luckily enough, our neighbours have been kind enough to hold our perishable food for a night.
We ended up buying an adaptor and spending in overall more than £100 for two nights.

Really, an experience to forget.

Just returned from 3 nights, great time. Site is about 15 mins from Heston, where there's a tesco and sainsburys for your supplies, although there are several small shops in Mullion. the site is Down a quiet country road. 2 large camping fields. Facilities are basic, but perfectly clean and functional. Loads of washing up space, a few showers (take your 20p pieces for hot showers) - as I said these are clean, but nothing fancy. We don't mind this but I know it's not for everyone. The Gentleman running the site is very friendly and helpful.
The coastal path is approx 10 min walk away ~ abosolutely spectacular. Gentle 90 min walk north to Pollurian cove or longer south to Kynance cove (definite must).

Had a great time at this site during the summer, Steve the manager was really helpful. Huge pitches and lots of room for everyone, sea views and although facilities are basic they were always clean with lots of hot water. Would recommend to anyone wanting something off the beaten track in a quiet location although it's not too far from the shops and pubs of nearby Mullion.

Room Tip: Best weather seems to be during the shoulder months, always lots of pitches available apparently in...

Arrived to find electrical problems with van, owner of site had an electrician with us in less than an hour and very reasonable price to boot.
found site very clean if a little basic ( facilities soon to be updated now National trust run
site ( from 15th July)
Only gripe would be helicopters from Predannack airfield but we were aware of them before we booked.
Lynn old owner was very pleasant and helpful and I think Steve the National Trust
site manager came round every day to see if all was OK
We found site ver pet friendly and when our dog escaped Lynn caught him and bought
him back laughing to say he had checked the whole site, we even took our cat which had the freedom to roam the field.

Booked here for 10 nights. Found owner very polite until money handed over and then she was rude and agressive, facilities very basic. Dog friendly? I think not! Site large and quiet but also woken by RAF flights on a regular basis. Friends of ours travelled hundreds of miles to see us hoping to pitch for a few days...she threw them off site before they could hand over any money!. We'd already left early and won't be back!

We have camped here 5 times since 2003. Lovely peaceful site. We've never been disturbed by helicopters. Facilities are basic but plenty of hot water and always clean. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is plenty of space for children to play without disturbing campers. We went to France last year but our oldest two, now teenagers want to go back to Teneriffe farm this year.
