“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights in mid August 13. We didn't book and tried it on our arrival to st Ives.

We were given a space on the overspill camping area which was fine and still the same price at £35 per night.

Staff at the reception were friendly and helpful.

Toilet block and showers perfectly clean a great play area for kids and has amazing views of st Ives and the lovely blue sea.

Would always stay here when going to st Ives.

Me and my partner stayed here in our tent just for the 1 night, never stayed here before or been to st ives- even though it's an hour's drive there. On arrival nice pleasant hello from reception to get booked in, shown on a big map guide us to the over flow Feild, got there 10.30 set up. Shower block is brilliant hot showers plugs for use ofy hair straighteners were a bonus as didnt think I could use them. Always kept clean amd was never a wait to get a shower. To the left showers right was the loos. Location was brilliant didnt need to take car around its about 5 min walk easy down bit a bit of hill on way back- there is a bus that runs every 15 Mins to the beach £1 adults 50p child. So thanks am amazing night there. For sure we will be back in 3 weeks :) smiles all round

what can i say about this place but FANTASTIC WONDERFUL , We as a family have enjoyed all the types of accomadation here, Camping, touring caravan, static caravan, And Ayr Terrace and they have never let us down, even after 13 years of coming here we never got bored with the staff and the place, Chris and Debbie need a special mention always smiling and always happy to help us, Ayr holiday park is a must for all families trying st ives for the first time or returning again, all the accomadation has parking which is a money saver.
The grounds are maintained to a very high standard more so when the flowers are in full bloom

The place is always being improved year in year out. Has a mobile shop that saves the walk in the morning to the shop and breakfast bar in the packbackers field.

We love the place and all the staff even after 13 years we get such a wonderful reception each and every time. the games room is great for all the eager children who cant wait for parents to get ready.and the view from the site is just breathtaking.

If you require any information the reception staff go beyond the call of duty....

Well done to all our special place to stay St Ives Number 1

Room Tip: any always clean and maintained to a very high standard

This park is on the edge of St Ives, accessed through the local streets. It has a magnificent view of the westerly beach and the Tate St Ives. It has a new rather splendid shower block but the park is very expensive. It cost £33 a night without a hook up (including 2 dogs) which is very pricey
For the un-fit, walking back from the town is hard work, nearly vertical in places. Its better to come back via the coastal path rather than the treck through the streets, the coastal path is a much more gentle climb and much more interesting.

We stayed one night in the overflow camping with a 4 person tent, no electric, one car and two adults and we were charged 28 pounds. The night before we stayed at a place in Hayle and it was 13 pounds. With the charges and exchange rate it came to $44.12. I could get a hotel room in a small town in the US for that. Location was good because we could walk into St. Ives from there which is why it probably cost so much. Nice showers too but still overpriced in my opinion. Oh and the wifi cost extra. The other place was free.

We spent just over a week at the site on a serviced hard standing pitch in June, although the pitch was sloping and we needed several blocks it was worth it for the views over St Ives Bay. The toilet block is spotless and very rarely busy as the site is not huge. Nice walk down the hill to Porthmeor Beach, bit of a haul back up bit you can get a but into the park for £1 each. We discovered the scenic cliff top walk down to the bay late on in our holiday wiich is easier on the legs coming back to the site. St Ives is a fantastic place with several bays to choose from. Have booked again next year as most do who go to this site.

A campsite that has it all, outstanding views, cleanliness, friendly staff, value for money, spacious pitch (love the little picnic benches), on site breakfast van perfect for our one night stay as we didn't bring any cooking gear, great facilities, family friendly, in town but also away from the hecticness.

I stayed with a friend last night and can't wait to return for longer stay. Also, thankyou for letting us leave our car in the far field after our checkout whilst we headed in to town. We noticed the extra touch and really did appreciate it!
