Stayed here for a weekend with friends who had visited before and suggested it. Have looked at sites on the Lizard but not this one. As it was a weekend in term time the camping field was quiet and we had a wide choice of pitches close together. Chose two overlooking the central green area reserved for ball games. Pitches are a generous size, fairly level with many having hook-up. the pitches we had were separated by little shrub/grass lines which was a nice touch. Usual facilities are available centrally, all very clean and well maintained. Shower block is bright and tidy with free hot showers. Apparently there are plans to update the block which will make the facilities even better. There isn't a shop on site but you are able to use the one on the neighbouring site. The central grass area mentioned earlier is well tended with trees and shrubs back-dropping garden benches to sit and chill in the evening with a coffee or, even better, a glass of wine.
Kennack Sands is only a 10-15 min walk down the valley which is ideal for families with good facilities available. This also gives you access to the South West Coast Path either east or west.
Overall, a great site run by an extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful couple. A fantastic weekend.
Although we didn't have children (they're grown up!) we noticed that it seemed a very safe environment for little ones away from noisy busy roads with play areas although some were age restricted.
