“Great site!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Great campsite for all, with or without kids. We have just returned from a weeks long trip and although we had great weather the site was great, even with bingo twice a week!! Very clean , and all the staff were very friendly, we will be returning next summer!!!!

We have been touring for over 20 years and this has to be one of best if not the best commercial site we have stayed on. I dont see a lot point in repeating the comments made in the previous reviews, so a few new ones. There are no statics on site so everything is geared to tourers and tents. The site is high above St Ives on a gentle slope. The full service pitches on the terraces at the top of the site have little shelter from the prevailing sw wind so be prepared!
That having been said great facilities, great holiday and we have booked for next year!

we stayed here for 6 days from the 14th july 2012, the site prides itself with being so clean and they succeed, the showers and toilet facillities were immaculate, bins emptied regually and the grass kept short. All the staff we met were friendly, but extra credit shoud go to the 2 young lads that work hard behind the bar ( Jimmy and the one that looks like a singer out of one direction) They are both friendly and proffessional, very passionate about the Doombar real ale. If we were in the area again, we would not hesitate in booking here again. A perfect week regardless of the winds and rain ( did have a couple of nice days). Well done polmanter.

Room Tip: Book early to get the pitch you want

Polmanter is a great site to enjoy a relaxing break away glamping. The service was great. I asked for a pitch near to the toilets and I was put a stones throw away from them. Our daughter loved the park and ESP the swimming pool aswell as the kids entertainment on one of the nights in the conservatory. Me and my partner had a Great night playing bingo and getting to no the other campers in the lounge.
The site was so clean as well. I am a clean freak and I actually fear campsites WCs however I was put at ease with seeing how clean this sites lavs were. guess what girls they have plug sockets in the ladies wash room so you can straighten your hair
As well ad there own Hair dryers. The laundrette is fab aswell with washers dryers and irons. The location was Great. You are a twenty min walk away from st Ives and there's a lovely walk you can go down to get to the centre. A bus comes very often to take you back to the site if you don't fancy a walk back uphill . We enjoyed crabbing too. The crabs do get put back after tou have caught them, its just the fun of it and seeing other people crab aswell. But be careful people the seagulls will take any food they can. They took mackerel we used for crabbing. A slice of pizza out my hand and a pasty out of my partners seconds later. It was pretty funny u just got to cover food up when eating on the front. They are very clever birds and watch for the vunrable people.
From the site You can also take a walk to the steeple and see a fab view of
beach and sea.
There was a field we took and flew our kite on aswell as played foot ball in our bare feet.
We loved our stay That much we stayed an extra two nights.
I rate this site 5 star Defo.

Spotlessly clean site and very well maintained.One of the best sites we have stayed in. Not the cheapest but worth the money. Pitches are divided by hedging providing a privacy and shelter. There is a nice pub/restaurant on site as well as a heated outdoor swimming pool. There is also a nice pub/restaurant off site within a 5 minute walk. Its quite a large site but because of the layout it never seemed crowded despite being quite busy during our stay. There is a bus connection to St Ives from the entrance gate. It's also possible to walk into the town along a public path/narrow country lane a journey taking approximately 25 minutes. Good views of the Cornish coastline - weather permitting! Staff are friendly and helpful and provide a lot of useful information on the locality at check in.

Great location, Great pool, Well priced quality food in the bar - enjoyed evenings entertainment (bingo/quiz), staff were very good, very clean toilets/showers, no problem with noise around site, only downside would be the price but overall a very good campsite.
