We've stayed at Polmanter for the last 10 years every Summer, only missing last Summer because instead we were busy getting married at the lovely Tregenna Castle nearby!
I couldn't fault Polmanter, 10 years camping and 10 happy years. We're back again this Summer, on a serviced pitch for the first time (damn those iPhones and their lack of battery).
The toilet facilities cannot be faulted, clean and lovely. The on site bar and restaurant are good, the takeaway a little random in it's opening times, the pool is lovely.
The view, on a good day, from the park is amazing - you can see all the way down to St Ives, the bay and the sea.
The bus service which services the park is excellent, although we have seen the price increase considerably over the 10 years we've been going - I suppose that's the same as bus services everywhere.
Overall we've never considered anywhere else in St Ives, and unless something drastically changes I don't think we ever will.
Go (if you can get a booking - it's a very popular park) and you won't be disappointed.
