We've just returned home after a few days at St Martins campsite as we needed to stay for four nights as I was competing in the Tresco triathlon. The campsite is lovely, everything is clean and imaculate. Everyone that we met were lovely and friendly. Ben and Caroline are super organised and obviously work very hard to make your stay... More

Our first impression of St Martin's Campsite was a memorable one. Ben found us at the top of the island struggling with our heavy bags and insisted we climb into his vintage Land Rover for a ride down to the site. A friendlier, more welcoming campsite host I have yet to meet. He showed us to our pitch and left... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at St. Martins campsite. (6th - 9th June) After a smooth ride on Scillonian III from Penzance to St. Mary's we caught a small ferry to the beautiful vibrant St. Martins. On arrival at the harbour we were welcomed by Ben & Caroline who's presence is welcoming every day of the stay. Their... More

Just back from four nights at St Martin's campsite and, although we're not regular campers, we're really missing the place. I rarely bother to write reviews but I can't praise this campsite or this location enough.

We enjoy exploring the world, but an annual stay on St Martin's is essential for all members of our family. Ben & Caroline run a campsite, without equal. They keep the facilities spotlessly clean and go that extra mile to make everyone welcome. Flowers in the ladies loo. Caroline provides deliciousl extras like marmalade, croissants & baked potatoes.
