We have just got back from 10 days at the Beacon Cottage Farm campsite (27th July to 6th August) - we returned after last year. We specifically requested the pitch and got what we asked for
It would appear that from some of the recent reviews some people should leave their tents, and get a hotel on the sea front.
The campsite is well maintained, the showers and toilets are spotless and regularly cleaned, and Jane is more than helpful and friendly.
We had the centre pitch at the bottom of goose field - I am 5'9" tall and could clearly see the sea. People complaining about the '6ft' wall really want a reality check. This is a windy site - there are good views out to sea because of the lack of tall trees / restrictive walls. without the walls around the fields, the wind would blow in without anything to stop it.
We had one breezy night this year, but as long as you are prepared (long main pegs and pitch your tent / awning properly) then you should have no problems. There appeared to be damage to a number of windbreaks and 1 gazebo and that was it.
Chapel Porth beach (less than a mile away) is idyllic and is lifeguarded. St Agnes village is very friendly and unspoiled, with some very nice watering holes, and good shops.
All in all, one of the best campsites that I have visited (in over 40 years of camping)
