Booked here for 10 nights. Found owner very polite until money handed over and then she was rude and agressive, facilities very basic. Dog friendly? I think not! Site large and quiet but also woken by RAF flights on a regular basis. Friends of ours travelled hundreds of miles to see us hoping to pitch for a few days...she threw them off site before they could hand over any money!. We'd already left early and won't be back!

We have camped here 5 times since 2003. Lovely peaceful site. We've never been disturbed by helicopters. Facilities are basic but plenty of hot water and always clean. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is plenty of space for children to play without disturbing campers. We went to France last year but our oldest two, now teenagers want to go back to Teneriffe farm this year.

A very clean quiet site, away from everything, great views out to sea, good walks, no light polution so lovely to sit out at night, relax with a drink and watch the shooting stars, we found the owner and her dogs very friendly. We will be going back soon for another relaxing visit.

I have stayed here many many times in a tent and caravan. I find the facilities clean and adequate, in line with what you'd expect with a small quite campsite. It is perfect for families with young children with safe wide open areas for them to play. There is no noisy club house or over prices shop but all the essentails for campers needs. The owners are pleasant and helpful dispite being very busy during peak times.

I have occionally experianced low flying aircraft during the day as it is close to an airfield, but as we spend most days off the campsite this didn't pose a problem, infact I enjoy the experience. It is in a wonderful location with seaviews and the beautiful Mullion Harbour only a short walk away.

All in all, my stay here is always a pleasant and I look forward to my next stay.

Not recommended to anyone who likes peace and quiet!

The site has superb sea views, but unfortunately is right next to an airfield used to train RAF helicopters. During our stay we were constantly bombarded with helicopter noise. Often they would barely clear the camping field!!!

During the week, they were flying constantly on three occasions up until midnight, once as late as 1:30am!!! Thank god we didn't have young children with us. On those nights, sleep was rather difficult!

Site facilities are very limited. There is not even an on-site shop. Nearest shop is in the village, two miles away. OK if you like walking, I suppose. The toilet block could have been a lot cleaner.

Watch out for the site owner. He likes creeping up on your tent in his golf buggy when you least expect it.

Can't recommend this site unfortunately. Found the owners very unfriendly and the toilets disgusting. When I tried to complain, the owner went off on one like some kind of psyco.

On my first go at camping, my friend wanted to take me somewhere spectacular. We had originally tried to get into a campsite in Treen but because they do not allow campers to pre book, and we didn't relish the idea of being number 6 on the waiting list, we were faced with finding an alternative at short notice. After phoning around other campsites in the area with no success, it was by chance we found the number for Teneriffe campsite near Mullion Cove. Kim was so friendly on the phone and warned us that the weather was not ideal for pitching tents, but she would be able to help us out of the mud if needs be. I was a little dubious.
By the time we got there, the sun was shining and the site was half empty with plenty of free pitches.
This site, although it is miles from anywhere, is perfect for nights under canvas.
There are distant views of the sea and a fantastic stretch of the SW Coastal footpath is a ten minute walk away.
On site, the facilities are spotlessly clean; there is no litter; no noise and the ever present smile of Kim the manager.
The morning of our departure, we couldn't find Kim( she was walking her dogs) and left what we thought was an appropriate fee for our stay, only to be surprised by a phone call from Kim on our way home telling us that we had over paid and she was going to send us a cheque for the difference!!
I would highly recommend anyone thinking of camping in the area to stay there!!
