My boyfriend and I came here in April 2014 to camp for 3 nights, as we wanted to explore a bit of Cornwall. It was a little hard to find but once we did, we were warmly greeted by the owners' (Lesley and Tony- a very kind and considerate couple!) daughter who said we could set up and settle in and her mum would be round to the tent to see us later that day.
It was the week after the Easter Holidays, and there was only one other tent when we arrived (and only 2 other tents arrived by the Friday, our last night). We were blessed with the weather until the last night, when we had to abandon the trip to start our 330 mile journey home at midnight, but Lesley did say we were welcome to leave whenever we wanted on the Saturday morning if we needed our tent to dry out.
The campsite is absolutely beautiful, just a big field with a lovely pond/lake in the centre and lots of 'stone circles' for campfires dotted around the edge. There is also a variety of picnic benches and tables for your perusal and plenty of wood for the campfires.
The owners are extremely friendly and encouraged us to wander around their farm. We bought a bag of fire logs from them on the first night and we managed to use them over all three nights for the campfire, and some duck eggs at 20p each!
The toilet/shower block was lovely too- clean, well lit and with plenty of hot water.
On our wander we were also encouraged to have a look inside the beautiful caravans as they were all vacant, and they're just lovely! Very quaint, and all the soft furnishings have been made by Lesley so it's apparent a lot of love has gone into them! They each come with a campfire, a bench, some scones (with Cornish cream and jam!) and their own separate lake (shared between the two caravans). We're definitely staying in one on our next trip!
We would absolutely recommend this campsite as somewhere to relax and take some quiet time out!
