This great little campsite is a stones throw away from the Camel trail and only a 10 minute walk into Padstow. It is all very well looked after, the facilities are completely spotless. Great quality high pressure showers are a refreshing change to what is on offer at most other campsites! To top things off we were made to feel...

A relatively small site - we stayed for 1 night in our motor home. Really friendly staff, quiet but within a short walk of Padstow, really pretty grounds and excellent facilities (toilets, showers, laundry etc). Suggest calling to check if they have space before you get there.

The site is a real gem. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. the site is basic but always very clean and quiet. Perfect location for the camel trail. We have visited this site several times a year over the last few years and always have an amazing time.

Dennis Cove is an immaculately clean campsite, possibly the cleanest I've ever been to. We had a pitch with electric hook up for three nights for £78. Good value I think. The site is situated on the Camel trail just 10 mins walk out of Padstow village. A flat walk too. As I said everything is spotless, and the showers...

Great little site, literally 10 mins walk into padstow. The first thing that stuck me about the site was how friendly the guy running the place was, he couldn't do any more to help me and other at the site, real credit to the site. The facilities were clean and showers modern, the only let down is they are 50p...

We stayed here for three nights in a motorhome. A very clean, neat and spacious site with extremely friendly staff. The toilet block is basic and could do with updating, but very clean. Just 5 minutes from the Camel trail and then a pleasant 10 min walk to Padstow along the river bank. The approach lane is narrow and felt...

Large spaces allocated for the camper van with hedges that allow some private views. Very clean showers with large cubicles so you can change in the same space. Separate toilets and sinks that are clean. Fairly small site so everything is close by. 5 minutes walk from the Camel trail with excellent views of the estuary and offering access to...

We opted to stay in the field as the pitches lower down were really close together. The field would be great for sledging in the snow but it was challenging for camping and we left after 2 nights as sleeping was uncomfortable. Staff super friendly and the cleanest Loos and showers I've ever seen. 15 min stroll along cycle path...

Another great stay at this campsite in our motorhome. It has an old fashioned appeal and is close to Padstow so no need to move van. The toilet block is basic but is the cleanest of any sites we've visited. The atmosphere of this site is also due to the charming people who run it. What an asset they are.

“Best pitch in field is the hedge side at the back - still good views but much flatter”
  • View from hill above campsite
  • The pitch we chose - great views but too sloped for good sleep

“Be aware there are 2 sites here. One is Dennis Cove, which I guess looks over the estuary and the other is Dennis Farm. If you want a sea view probably best to specify.”
