★★★☆☆

Relaxing rural idyll in need of a decent shower block

I really want to love this place but there are certain criteria a campsite must fulfill. It has an idyllic setting and is a super base for exploring the South Cornwall coast, beaches, gardens (Trebah, Eden Project, Helligon etc), for cycling, Charlestown, sea fishing from Mevagissey and so much more. The lake and the wee boat provide a great focus and hours of entertainment for the kids and adults alike, the surroundings are very relaxing and peaceful and it is great to be able to have a camp fire. I am used to rustic camping and don't mind simple, basic facilities but they need to be clean, easily accessible, provide plenty of hot water and the price needs to reflect the facilities on offer, I felt this was a little expensive for the facilities on offer and we were rather paying for the idylllic setting and location. The filthy flooring in the ladies' shower area was precarious and unsettling due to several loose floorboards, which gave way under foot. During our 3-night stay the facilities did not seem to be cleaned properly, the tiny bin was regularly overflowing, there was often no toilet paper and the shower's water flow stopped unexpectedly - I don't think the boiler could cope. Each shower block, ie gents' and ladies' contains 1 shower, 2 toilets and 2 sinks, respectively. I think there are approx. 35 pitches, so a 2nd shower for each gender would help. Washing-up facilities would also help greatly. The owners are building another toilet block at the entrance to the second field which might be ready for next year, but they also need to refurbish the existing one at the entrance to the first field, it is so awful. Would I go again? Possibly but I hope they sort out the facilities.
