Customer Reviews


“This is an excellent site, the owner, Simon Filmer is welcoming, friendly and incredibly helpful. He helped us to pitch our (new) awning and are regularly chatting to visitors; making sure that everything is OK and taking a genuine interest in what we have been doing and whether the site has everything that we need. The facilities are basic, but clean and fresh. The pitches are spacious; not too close together, and enjoy fabulous views of the Helford Estuary and open countryside. We will definitely visit again soon. “  Nigel and Catherine - May 2015
