AMAH42, Haslemere, United Kingdom “Peace and tranquillity” [5 of 5 stars] November 2015
I stumbled across this site whilst doing a Camper tour of the southwest. How pleased was I. It was quiet, facilities spotless and staff very helpful. The site is on a slope with views down the valley and the sea in the distance. Great way to wake up!! Will certainly be going back.
NoseyMole, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom “Great Stay - We will be back.” [5 of 5 stars] November 2015
The site is well kept and perfectly functional - there aren't all the bells and whistles of other sites - there is no pool, no bar and no games room etc - and as such its VERY peaceful! The views are lovely and the kids are free to play at the park and can be easily watched from your pitch if you pick the right one - Everyone was friendly and the kids made friends at the park area and were playing until late most nights! If you do head to Pentewan for the pool and beach - there is a charge for parking - but you can then reclaim that against the cost of using the pool - or a coffee at the beach bar.
We are now looking to book our main holiday for 2016 - and Heligan Woods is in the final contenders.
Simon W “Half term break ” [4 of 5 stars] November 2015
Really nice quiet & secluded, well maintained little site. Certainly a nice alternative to the mainstream more "commercial" sites that you tend to get down that way. Nice & handy for the harbour town of Mevagissey, just over a mile down the road.- nice little cornish sea side town; good for kids good crabbing!
Anne B “Good location and facilities” [4 of 5 stars] October 2015
We recently stayed in our camper van at Heligan Woods campsite for 6 nights at a cost of £10 per night ( including electricity) which we thought was very reasonable. We booked on line and this was a very easy process enabling you to select your site from those available for your chosen dates. The grounds are well cared for and tidy and pitch size is good with many hard standing pitches available for big vehicles.
The site is in a good location being next door to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and only 1 and a half miles from Mevagissey along a footpath. It was also easy to get to other local places of interest. The washrooms/toilets on the site were warm and kept clean during our stay. There are three showers and 5 five toilets each for men and women and whilst we were there this was perfectly adequate though I suspect that when all 80+ sites are occupied queues may well develop to use these facilities. There is also a laundry room on site and full recycling facilities. In conclusion I would say this is a good site in a good location for exploring this area of south Cornwall.
Empryce, “Family camping holiday” [4 of 5 stars] 15 September 2015
We found this campsite to be fully equipped with really clean facilities. Plenty of hot showers in both ladies and gents toilets as well as a communal block. Very family friendly with a big childrens park on site. The couple in reception were very helpful and provide a free service for any campers which need their ice blocks freezing overnight. A great base to explore The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project.
WilsonBailey, Peterborough, England “Fantastic site” [5 of 5 stars] 13 September 2015
Just returned from a weeks camping here and wish we were still there!! Very quiet site which was just what we were looking for, toilets and showers were always clean and the on site shop stocked the essentials. Staff on site were helpful and friendly. Lovely but steep walk down to Mevagissey which once there was perfect!! Cant wait to return.
Nicola B, Exeter, United Kingdom “Lovely relaxing break...again!!” [5 of 5 stars] 10 September 2015
This is my second visit to Heligan Woods. Myself and my family stayed during August in one of the holiday caravans which was 'dog friendly'. I must say it was extremely clean with all the facilities you would need. A gate leads to 'The Lost Gardens' (a real must see!) and a cycle path/footpath leads to Mevagissey where there are some lovely shops and eateries. Very good beaches - some dog friendly - are within a short drive. Look forward to returning again!!
Garry B, Lincoln, United Kingdom “Perfect caravan site for Mevagissey.” [4 of 5 stars] 30 August 2015
Stayed for 4 nights on a hard standing pitch. There have been some issues due to bad weather but the staff were very helpful with campers and did there best to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable. We had no issues with our pitch. The farm shop next door is excellent and the walk to Mevagissey and pentewan is lovely although a little muddy. Toilets and showers were ok maybe need a little modernising but more than adequate.
rhiannoncapewell “Amazing!!” [5 of 5 stars] 21 August 2015
Best holiday park we have been to in years. The facilities were brilliant, very clean and the staff were helpful. It is a very friendly and Salk site ideal for families and couples. We would definitely go back and are looking to book next year.
Faye K, Sheffield, United Kingdom, “Great campsite” [5 of 5 stars] Reviewed 12 August 2015
Easy to find, clean facilities, great views. Not much else, which is fine by me! It literally has one gateway at the back for direct access to the Heligan Gardens (a must-see) and another gateway at the front that leads onto a very safe foot/cycle path about 1.5 miles to Mevagissey where we found lovely pubs & pasty shops. A beautiful, mid-level round walk of approx 6 miles published on the Cornwall tourist website can be begun directly from the campsite (Google Mevagissey Pentewan walk). Highly recommended campsite & I suspect we'll be back if Kneehigh Theatre pitch up again. We camped on a huge pitch and it was super cheap, even in high season.
kirstyjenkins, Bournemouth, United Kingdom, “Excellent campsite” [5 of 5 stars] Reviewed 6 August 2015
Have just stayed here for 3 nights. Its an excellent campsite. The pitches are really big & you don't get over-looked. Its the height of August & it doesn't feel crowded & there is never a Q for showers or loos. Both of which are spotless by the way. This place feels like it should be kept a secret, its awesome. Friendly staff. great shop selling basics. There is a series of footpaths from the side - The Coast & Clay Trail - Ive not used my car once. Fabulous walking. The only downside is no where to walk to for a cold beer in the evening.
Anita M, Beaworthy, United Kingdom “Nice site” [4 of 5 stars] Reviewed 5 August 2015
Pretty site, quite small which we like, no clubhouse or pool or anything noisy. There is a small shop and a nice upmarket burger van in the evenings. Nice countryside views. Not all pitches are flat, and the showers are too hot for my son and me. We had a very large pitch for our tourer which was great. Lawn mower man is very diligent so the site looks very tidy. Access can be a little tight for large rigs as site roads are narrow. Shower blocks are showing their age a bit. Access is easy to the site if you follow the Lost Gardens of Heligan signs rather than your sat nav. Could do with more information on their website, especially some clear driving directions pointing this out. Wifi is paid and useable but not reliable.

If you are camping or caravanning in Cornwall the campsite that is joined on to the gardens is well worth staying at, great views towards the coast which is about 2 miles away which there is a path down to but all uphill on the way back, its well looked after and nice and quite there sister park is about 5 mins in the car down at the coast where there is shop chippy and a bar and the beech, but this is a very busy park because of the beech

Siobhan H, Chelmsford, United Kingdom, “Quiet, big pitches, great view” [5 of 5 stars] Reviewed 18 July 2015
First time campers, we are a couple and found this site had very big grass pitches (pitch 5 in particular which we were on is on a corner and spacious.) Quiet site with clean facilities (we stayed 13-17th July and there were always plenty of showers and toilets free, never a queue when we wanted to use them.) 1 minute's walk from the Lost Gardens of Heligan- highly recommended. And Lobbs Farm shop right next door for fresh meat and all sorts of food provisions, as well as on-site shop.
Approx 40 minute walk along nice walking/ cycling trail to Mevagissey which is a quaint Cornish fishing village with lots of pubs and places to eat/ things to do. The walk is up and downhill so check you're up to it first. Worth it for a drink in Mevagissey if you are! A boat trip accross to Fowey from Mevagissey was fun, half price if you take the last boat of the day and go straight there and back without getting off at Fowey.
The new mobile fish and chip (& more - burgers, scallops etc) van on Mevagissey harbour serves delicious food - the seafood is caught from their own fishing boat. Pay them a visit.
Overall I would highly recommend. A great base to explore Cornwall.
13Amanda13, Taunton, United Kingdom “Lovely site” [4 of 5 stars] Reviewed 15 July 2015
I spent two nights here on my own and felt very safe. I had a good spot overlooking the valley and the sea beyond. There were two friendly pheasants wandering around. A small rustic type play area for children. Small shop with basic items for sale. Best of all lovely walks from the site, one I took was to Mevagissey. Never met a single person in two miles!
I think it's a shame that the site and The Lost Gardens of Heligan which are next to each other, can't have some sort of reciprocal arrangement for visiting it at a reduced rate.

A beautiful campsite well worthy of its 5 star status. Very clean and quiet and they don't charge extra for using the showers which are modern and clean.
This is the perfect site if you want to visit The lost gardens of Helligan as it right next door. The shop in reception is small but has all the bits you need to get by and the staff are very polite and helpful.
The pitches are plenty big enough for pretty much any size tent and even have room for your car.
We'll be back without a doubt.

Great location for exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall. The plots are large and most have a seaview. The children enjoyed playing in the playarea. The facilities were clean and there was plenty of toilets. There is a well stocked farm shop in walking distance, as well as the beautiful heligan gardens on the doorstep. There is also a great scenic path (walking/cycle path) to Mevagissey, which took around 35 minutes, walking at a good pace.

Just returned from our second visit. Both times stayed in 2 bed static and both times spotless. Easy access to Lost Gardens and walk to Mevagissey. Perhaps a bit of local information in static would be helpful. Overall enjoyable stay.
