Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Friendly and comfortable environment. Easy access to beach with has great waves for surfing and picturesque scenery. Private cubical showers which most the time were clean unless high usage (But only with muddy flip flop prints- hard to avoid). Regular evening food options all take away. Highly recommended for family and couples. Only annoyance is early wakers.

My husband and I stayed from 10th August, right in the middle of the school holidays (although ours are all grown up,) so as we didnt have any with us we were given a lovely secluded and quiet pitch with easy access to a fresh water tap and the toilet and shower facilities. The showers were piping hot all week and very clean despite it being the height of the season. Only had to queue briefly once in the10 days that we were there. We had nothing but helpful and couteous service from all the staff there and the owner Claire, in particular went "that elusive extra mile" to help us when we needed help with a car problem. Th whole site was clean and well managed with well set up pitches and planting in between many. It was very quiet after 10.00 at night and again in the morning. a 10 minute walk across the adjoining fields, over a quiet lane to the lovely dunes and onto the cliffs above St Ives Bay. There were at least three different points of acess, a dog freindly beach and lots of rocks and rock pools at low tide to explore. Good lifeguard cover and the waves and surf were perfect. The Red River Inn over the road served the most delicious fresh food, complelely unexpected from a pub in a little lane in Cornwall, it was great but you do need to to book as its busy with tourists and locals. Cant wait to visit again.

This was our first family camping holiday but we enjoyed it immensely. We had a warm welcome at reception and were soon set up on our pitch. The one criticism there was that the pitches were a bit sloping.
The toilet block on the whole was well maintained although it was a pity that only one of the two hair dryers in the ladies was working for most of our stay.

Having facilities for freezing ice blocks is a nice idea but the freezers were overloaded and it took 2-3 days for one lot of our blocks to freeze. I heard others discussing the same.

The site is well visited by different food vans. The curry was very nice, I'd rate the chip can as average. The pub across the road was a big surprise, recommended to book as it's tiny!

In terms of location, you couldn't fault it. Very easy off road walk to the beach, which has a summer lifeguard service. Lots of opportunities for surfers swimmers or just family fun.

Overall, recommended.

Brilliant campsite with clean modern facilities, lovely pitches marked out with grasses and plants. 5 minute walk to the beach, with it consistent surf, and a lovely dog friendly pub next to the entrance. A perfect campsite as far as I'm concerned!

Fantastic site, showers are superb, toilets clean, location is great with short walk to great beaches. Family friendly, limited play area which could be improved. Location makes up for this, fish and chip can is good, pastries lovely. Curry not so good but will be back next year for sure. Great site.

Just returned from Gwithian Farm DOG FRIENDLY after having a fantastic 7 nights. Excellent pitch sizes, toilets/showers very clean. The staff are really friendly and helpful. This site has lots of special treats for everyone...a fish n chip van arrives at the site twice a week, croissants and Danish pastries are available 3 times a week from reception area (yum yum).Thursday nights is curry night also available from reception area. The Red River Inn across the road from site is fantastic too, really tasty food (delicious) also DOG FRIENDLY. The beach is a short walk from the site (10 minutes). This site is fantastic I will return again next year and the year after that. Would recommend to everyone, its just PERFECT in every way. Well done to all the staff and owners who help run this lovely PERFECT site. : ) : ) : )
