Our first full camping trip as a family of four, two teen age boys aged 15 and 17. First thing this site does get booked up early so you need to plan in advance, we got lucky as there had been a cancellation and we managed to get 10 days here. As mentioned only being a novice camper I was worried about toilet facilities and noise from neighbours at night, well toilets were fantastic. Clean and plenty of showers all with benches for your clothes, there is also a few cubicles where you could shave and clean your teeth in private. There is the local radio on in the day time and at night I found the toilets were pleasantly warm. The pitches are all flat and I did not feel too closed in even though the site was virtually full. Now noise which was my second worry was ok, yes people are socialising whilst cooking and having the odd glass of wine, we did and in fact could not believe how much we cooked on site, drank and played cards or backgammon etc but after 22.00 hrs most people respected each other and kept the noise down. The other thing is we were outnumbered by tourers so that helps with noise. in fact if you do play up you will be off before you know it, one thing if you do like it quiet steer clear of the toilets as it can be noisy in the early evening as the children do seem to congregate there. There again I'm sure certain people will thrive specially if you have a young family but give this some thought. My only gripe is the 10.00 am departure as it did not give us time for the tent to be fully dry before packing but to be fair we did not vacate until 11.00 am as it took us a bit longer to figure out how to repackage the tent and no one hurried us. Thought the shop outside could do a lot more for campers as not a lot in stock so we used to shop in Asda or Sainsburys in Newquay and was not keen on the Mermaid pub across the road as too busy so we walked along the cliffs into Newquay if we ate out. There is a bus stop outside for Newquay if the weather was not good and we loved watergate bay for surfing which was a 10 minute drive away. For our first experience in camping we were over the moon and will add to our equipment so our next time here will be even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend this site.
