We had a lovely stay on site in Andy & Tanya’s safari tent. They are very friendly and welcoming and made sure we were comfortable. The tent is amazing! Fully stocked with a wood burner, fairy lights and a warm shower (much appreciated over a chilly Easter).

There are lovely beaches close by and the site is in a great location for families as it is so secluded and quiet. There is a little shop that can provide pastries from the bakery for breakfast. Ducks and chickens are kept in a fenced off area.

What a delightful little campsite. Got to the campsite early,1:30 p.m. and met Andy (captain America) in the car park. He advised us that the Airstream wouldn't be ready until 3.0 p.m. OK we understood, so he gave us a quick tour of the site and the facilities, what a site it was!! Superbly clean toilets and surrounding area, fantastic layout of the tents/caravans and tourers, a communal kitchen and a generally nice site. Before Andy had finished his tour, we were advised that the Airstream was ready and we could unload our stuff. This was before the 3.0 p.m. deadline and we really appreciated that Tanya had made a special effort to get it ready as soon as she knew we had arrived. Andy couldn't have been more helpful, showed us exactly what the Airstream was all about and when he found out I had walking difficulties, gave up his maintenance parking slot so that I could park my own car there and didn't have too far to walk for transport. Once settled in went to the main office (the shop) and met Tanya, who's enthusiasm is great. As we were staying in the Airstream, she presented us with a welcome hamper which was greatly appreciated by us. I found both Andy and Tanya extremely helpful with regards to the surrounding area, where to go, the best beaches and how to get there. All in all my wife and I enjoyed our stay in the experience of the Airstream, it was very comfortable and has a very interesting history.

I would agree with the previous reviews stating this is a great campsite for families.
Centrally located and a great base to explore the whole of Cornwall.
Not a large site but just right. We were then last week and I think at some point all the pitches were taken or near enough. Still had room to breathe and some privacy.
Andy and Tanya were great friendly hosts and full of information. The pitches appeared to all be flat and not sloping.
We didn't find the site noisy at all and most people seemed to respect a decent time to quieten it down.
Nice little camp shop. Toilet are shower blocks were very clean and just the right amount of facilities in each.
My only gripe of the whole week was that there could have been extra washing up sinks. The communal kitchen did get rather busy. There was not much room to swing a cat round if there were people cooking, waiting for toast and others trying to wash up after breakfast. Some campers do need to learn to wash up, dry their stuff and clean their mess up after using the facilities, gripe over.
Overall the site was well looked after, well maintained and well managed, a credit to the owners.
The site is visited a few nights a week by a caterers, unfortunately we only got to try the pizza one, as the street food one had to be cancelled for personal reasons. The pizzas were delicious.
You can hire fire pits, BBQs and chimnea's and bags of wood on site, lovely to sit outside in the evening.
Only a twenty minute walk away from Watergate Bay.
Overall a very enjoyable stay and would recommend

We have just returned from a fantastic week at Coastal Valley camping and will very definitely be returning.

The site is quite small, which we like (approx 30 touring pitches I think) but the pitches are a very generous size. There are a number of picnic tables/benches which you can move around if you need them. There are plenty of water and hook up points, the water is fresh and suitable for drinking.

The communal kitchen facilities are really good. There's a toaster, microwave, gas stoves, and plenty of spare pots and pans, mugs, utensils etc in case you have forgotten anything or just if you want to cook in the dry (not that we had to worry about the weather - it was glorious!). Also two fridges and a freezer, for ice packs and storing food, just write your name on it. You can also leave any unused food for communal use if you pop a blue sticker on it. This can be handy for stuff like sauce or cordial (we ran out on our last day). Only tiny criticism of the kitchen would be an extra sink or two, maybe outside, as there was a wait for the sinks sometimes.

You can also plug your phone or tablet in to charge in the kitchen. Now on some sites, you wouldn't dream of leaving your phone charging in a communal area but this site is different. There's a great sense of community and trust, without being "hippy" if you know what I mean. This atmosphere was apparent throughout the site and it was one of the best things about our stay.

The showers and toilets were VERY clean, hot and free, and not the usual sand/mud/water combo you tend to find at coastal camp sites. There were only 3 showers in the ladies but I never had to queue. There's a hair dryer there too, with an honesty box if you use it during your stay. Plenty of hand wash, even a hand towel if you have left yours in the tent.

The site operates off grid (certainly for water) and the owners do stress this, as it causes problems if the wrong things are flushed down the loo or tipped down the sink. This did lead to a bit of an "issue" during our stay, some people were not keen on the polite notices put up in the loos to ask for help in keeping the system in balance. There was a slight "pong" given off by the water treatment process but we got used to that after a couple of days and it was only noticeable near the toilet block. I think when you put it in context of the ethos of the site, it's not a problem.

I took part in a craft activity with my daughter (willow weaving), which we really enjoyed. The pizza foodie night was amazing, such good food and very reasonably priced. We were disappointed that the other two foodie nights that should have taken place during our stay got cancelled due to unforseen circumstances, this was probably just bad luck and the owners did communicate well to let you know of any changes to the planned nights, so you could get food sorted.

Kids had so much fun making friends on the site, playing down by the stream and making dens, toasting marshmallows... everything you would want a camping holiday to be. We walked to Watergate Bay, just 25 minutes on foot across the fields. We also went to Padstow to cycle along the Camel Trail, visited Porth and Trevone beaches, and went to The Eden Project. Definitely no shortage of things to do.

Great site, will return. Thanks to Tanya and Andy for working so hard to make our stay the perfect holiday.

We stayed during Boardmasters with our young daughter, to be close to our teenage son who was attending the festival. Although for us this time it was a short break, it was a perfect setting and Tanya and Andy were extremely friendly, accommodating hosts. We will definitely be back.
