"Lovely, peaceful campsite…"
This is our favourite campsite we've visited so far. The site isn't too hard to find, and is in a beautiful spot on Bodmin Moor. Getting on to the site is a bit hairy because of the ford/bridge but wasn't a problem once we got used to it - we saw a variety of cars crossing the ford without a problem. There aren't marked pitches so it might be a bit of a pain if it was busy, as it was we were able to find a nice sheltered spot. There were quite high winds when we were there and a few tents really struggled in some of the more exposed spots (including one that totally buckled, so something to be wary of). That said, the site was gloriously peaceful, with a lovely atmosphere. The owners were friendly and helpful. Our small children loved seeing the ducks (with ducklings), chickens with tiny chicks and cockerels all wandering around. A couple of friendly cats were quite interested in our tent as well. The facilities were fantastic, very very clean and spacious. I had a lovely hot shower with a great supply of water. Toilets were immaculate and the piped in Pirate FM was a great touch. I can imagine that if the site was full, there might be queues for the facilities but there wasn't a problem when we were there.
There was a room with freezers, fridges, washing machines and charging stations (with lockable cupboards) for phones etc. There's also a little playroom with the sofa which was handy in bad weather.
We did the 'South Penquite walk', a 2/3 mile walk around the farm, which was gorgeous and a lovely way to tire out the kids before bedtime. Well signposted with a great guide leaflet.
Overall we were very impressed and looking forward to going back. I think I'd probably try to avoid peak season though.Read moreLess
