St. Martins Campsite is a small, sheltered, family run site, the only campsite on the Isles of Scilly to be awarded four stars by Visit Britain. St Martins campsite is only yards from a beautiful white sandy beach, it has a safe, friendly atmosphere which must be why so many campers come back year after year. There is a well equipped laundry, spotlessly clean toilet block,lockable charging lockers, free WiFi and a small honesty shop and if pre-booked, hot croissants each morning.

Absolutely lovely week, thank you Ben and Caroline. 5mins to pub, a bit longer to the shop, but lots to get distracted by on the way. Campsite was perfect, the rules are there for a reason! (don't forget to put a donation in one of the charity boxes when you charge your phone).

Dear Rosie00, Thank you very much for your lovely review, hopefully you will not put your tent back into the attic, keep it ready for more adventures. I have just hoisted today's flag, Alaska, that will keep them all guessing.

We stayed for 4 nights as a family. The owners are very kind and helpful. It made everything very easy. We loved the slower pace of life on the Island which has its own rhythms around the boats and tides

Dear Campingc8, Sorry for the delay in answering, you are the first person to have contacted us via Tripadvisor! We start taking bookings for 2016 from 0900 on Saturday the 14th of November. If you are after the school summer holidays it is prudent to phone on that morning as we are very popular and so (usually) fill up very quickly. Please phone as apposed to email because it is such a crazy day we do not get to check emails until the evening when the best dates may well have gone. We can add your details to a list and then email you a reminder just before the 14th. If you are after any other times of year then just contact us any time after the 14th of November. Yours Ben & Caroline
