Campsite Update – 4th May 2021

 Due to huge demand this year and transferring bookings from 2020 we are now full:

  • Half term week 29th May – 5th June.

  • 19th June – 31st August.

There is limited availability at other times. It is a very different year this year and we are trying our best to accommodate everyone’s requirements, whilst working hard to keep everyone safe. With regret we are unable to add additional people to existing bookings this year as we are concerned this would overload our facilities. All units must keep within the 10m x 10m pitch including your vehicle and there needs to be a gap between you and your neighbouring camper. Parking is a major issue locally, there is no additional parking on or off site so regrettably it is strictly 1 car per pitch at all times. We are all really looking forward to seeing you all and having a great summer.



CAMPSITE UPDATE – 30th March 2021

Great News!

We have now been told we can open ALL our washing facilities including the toilet and shower block with social distancing in place, from the 12th April.

We are currently looking at the details and will post further information when we know more.

Sorry for all of you who cancelled or transferred your bookings, we received a letter yesterday afternoon from Cornwall Council.

CAMPSITE UPDATE – 11th March 2021

We have now received clarification from Cornwall Council and unfortunately our shared facilities (toilets, showers, washing up facilities) are not allowed to open before 17th May at the earliest.

We can therefore open on the 12th April for those who are self-sufficient with their own toilet, shower and washing facilities. This can include tents and trailer tents.

The water and chemical waste points will be open for those who are self-sufficient, and we are waiting for clarification as to whether we can open the laundry with a booking system and will let you know ASAP.

For those who are not self-sufficient and were due to stay before the 17th May we will offer a full refund or transfer of booking to either this year or 2022.

However due to high demand we are now full for May half term, most of July and all of August, until approximately the 29th August. There is limited availability left for June and September is also booking up very quickly. We have full availability from the 12th April until the 29th May.

We have not yet opened our bookings for 2022 and when we do, priority will be given to those who have been cancelled due to covid restrictions in 2021. Your patience and understanding are much appreciated in this matter.

For those of you who have booked before the 17th May and are not self-contained, please contact us by email if you would like a full refund or to transfer your booking.

If you are self-contained and wish to stay, you do not need to contact us.

The shop will be open this season and we will make further announcements at a later stage on social distancing measures that will be in place.

We wish you all well and look forward to opening on the 12th April.

Take Care
