Excellent camping

Review of Pleasant Streams Farm Camping

Jan 4, 2015, by John W

We stayed at Pleasant Streams for two weeks in July/August of 2014 and it was the finest camping experience we have ever had.  We were worried about camping with two toddlers but the owners were fantastic and helped us find a great spot in a quiet field which stopped us worrying about the noise they create first thing. They also helped us find some of my son's toy trains he had lost and were always on hand for help and advice on the local area.  The site was refreshingly free of rules and regulations and being able to have a camp fire every night in a location free of traffic noise made for a magical atmosphere.  The kids loved seeing the pigs, ducks and geese and running around the site which has so many interesting bits to explore.  We'd never been to this part of Cornwall before but were amazed by the quality of the beaches and the sheer variety of potential day trip locations.  You're never stuck for days out but on a campsite like this it's also great to just take it easy in the surroundings and get back to the simple things.  We were glad we couldn't get phone reception as we switched them off for two weeks, disengaged from work fully for the first time in years and had a holiday we'll never forget.  While I've seen the facilities described as basic, we found them perfectly adequate even with two toddlers and never had to queue too long for the showers.  Can't wait for a return visit next summer!
