I stayed on the site with my wife, two girls and out mutt. In September 2013. The site is really well kept. There are no bells or whustles here but the site has everything you could need. The site itself is quiet and fairly isolated. The kids had a great time with this being the first camping trip. There are several walks from the site and mullion cove is about a 10min drive. I would recommend stocking up on supplies on the way to site as the nearest supermarket is helston 30mins drive. The kids play area is fine. The only minus point I could think of was there were a few quite young free roaming kids who had been there for the entire holidays. They were well enough behaved but were a bit of a pain our eldest daughter got used a free baby sitter. Im a firm beleiver that you should take care of your own kids and not leave it to a 12 yr old stranger

This was the perfect place to rekindle our love of camping in the UK after 20 years of living in SE Asia. Situated down quiet country lanes but only 5 minutes car drive (20 minutes walk) from the friendly town of Mullion, the 2 big fields meant there was plenty of space between pitches. The facilities were clean and the communal area for washing dishes made a good meeting place to talk with other campers and swap ideas about where to go. No noisy helicopters, only gliders drifting silently across the sky. As we wanted to walk as much as we could of the South West Coastal Path it was perfect, as the campsite is a 10 minute walk from the SWCP with stunning cliff/ sea views. Steve the manager was friendly, helpful and informative. And the stars on a clear night are AWESOME (and that's a word we rarely use!).

This camp site is now owned by THE NATIONAL TRUST since 2012.
Just returned from a severn night stay and I can't wait for next year. The pitches are well spread out, with a nice childrens playground. Showers and toilets are kept nice and clean. Steve the manager is extremely friendly. Keep up the good work

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...
