We are situate on a B road in the Pentewan Valley, which is the road to Mevagissey out of St Austell.  This makes us a great base for getting out and about, meaning you do not have to navigate yourself down narrow lanes getting in and out of the campsite.  However, there is road noise on site which affects some guests more than others.

The stream side of the campsite is furthest away from the road, and you can request a pitch this side.  With everything there is always a trade off, as the stream side loses the sun earlier in the day.  The shower block side is closest to the road, and gets the afternoon and evening sun.  We have hedging, and then the Pentewan Valley Trail is between our site and the road and a further hedge, but please do bear this in mind when booking your stay.

You do also hear a lot of bird song on the campsite, and the owls hooting at night.
