We’re not blessed with the best access in the world. It’s plenty wide enough for farm vehicles but it is single track. This is the main reason for sticking to arrival and departure times please. There’s a link to a video of the lane here from behind the wheel of a 1933 Austin 7.
Reception is open everyday. During peak season someone is on reception 8.30am-7.30pm.
Arrival is between 1.00 pm and 9.30pm, departure must be before 11.00am please. Remember we need to manage the traffic flow on our access lane as best we can.
There’s enough room for one car on your pitch (possibly two depending on the pitch, size of tent/campervan etc.) There’s no other parking on site. If you’ve got friends/family coming to see you, there’s plenty of parking available nearby in Padstow. It’s best that they park there and make their way to us on foot.
Being so close to town, we don’t keep a shop on site. With all the lovely bakeries and delicatessens, plus the Spar Supermarket and Padstow Farm Shop, you’ve got everything you need on your doorstep. Padstow Tesco is just up the road too. It’ll take you 10-15 mins to walk there or a couple of minutes in the car. We do have Wood Fired Pizza on a Thursday Evening and Coffee/Pastries 3 mornings a week during the Peak Season.
There’s charging points in the Old Pig Sheds. Otherwise, you can always leave it with us in Reception and we’ll pop it on charge for you. It won’t cost you anything but if you’d like to put some money in the charity pot, that would be ace!
There’s a couple of freezers in reception for ice blocks. Chances are that from 2021 onwards (keeping Covid in mind!) we’ll stock it with our own ice blocks that will be disinfected and already frozen for you to borrow. We’ll ask you for a little deposit and a bit of money for the charity pot.
The nearest sandy beaches are the Estuary Beaches. They’re about a 20 minute walk from the campsite through town. Otherwise, It’ll take you 5 minutes to drive to Trevone Bay, 10 minutes to Harlyn Bay or 15 minutes to Constantine Bay.
Well, we haven’t got one. Indeed, we haven’t got guest WiFi on site yet. The 4G signal is pretty good and plenty of places offer free WiFi in town. We’ve got a connection to the office so if there’s anything you want to check or need printed etc. just let us know.
As much as we love a good campfire, regrettably we do not permit campfires on site – it’s just too much of a risk. We’re working on an idea of putting in a communal fire pit so watch this space. BBQs are fine but for the time being it’s a no to fires.
