“A secret escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

We found Henry's by chance. Perhaps the sign for it is small for a reason! To keep it a secret? We booked 2 nights and wish we'd found it earlier. (and later - as there is a mini "Glastonbury" style festival on the 20th Sept looks like it could be amazing). The site is compact with sections walled off. Each spot has a name - ours was Little Scilly, next to us was Asparagus. It gave a feeling of quiet seclusion. We were in a campervan and there was plenty of space and hook up. We had to shoo away the chickens to park in our slot! The chickens and ducks wander around freely - good for getting rid of your scraps! The facilities are adequate and clean. We were there late in season so there wasnt a queue - but I can imagine high summer it may be different. A must is the jug of Old Rosie Cider you can buy from the shop. Hic. The surrounding are tranquil and pretty. You could be anywhere in the world. A definate chill out place tucked away. The only noise to disturb was the cockerals early morning call.

The local shops are minutes away for everything you need. We will definately camp there again. An absolute treat.

We had planned a few days away to relax after the school holidays. However we were pitched beside young families who had very young children who screamed most of our down time and woke us each morning at 6pm. Despite the early wakenings we managed to walk two wonderful days on the South west coast path. It was very lovely and made up for the lack of rest. Although I have empathy with young families trying to also have a holiday I do find that others are treated unfairly. This place should welcome dogs more than young children and they would certainly get me back as I believe my dogs were better behaved. It would be good if the campsite had a seperate area for couples and thier dogs as this would make all feel more welcome. We did overall enjoy the break and the fantastic seafood so would return once we bring our own neighbours,

Fourth year now at Henry's after discovering it by accident.

Stunning location, simple but perfectly adequate facilities. Jo, Ron and the team are always on hand to help out.

Well stocked little shop for anything you've forgotten and whilst not supermarket prices, by no means a rip off.

My advice - book as early as you can. I book upon leaving each year for the next. I forgot once, called in February and they were full.

A great little campsite (although they charge for absolutely everything, even putting your ice boxes in a freezer!!!) BUT as a dog owner, I wouldn't go again. There are laminated signs everywhere warning of the threat to ban dogs as if they are yet to make up their minds and it feels like finger pointing if you are there with your pooch, it makes you feel quite uncomfortable. I think its best to ban them and then we will would all be happy and go elsewhere where we are ALL made to feel welcome maybe??
