This campsite is probably the best one i've ever visited. I've been here with my girlfriend to have a "base" in our exploration of Cornwall.

I dailed ahead to check availability, and the nice lady on the phone told me that i could make a reservation, but since there were more than enough pitches available, reserving wouldn't be necessary.

We arrived after a 6+ hour drive from Ashford, and were greeted at the reception and given a few pitches to choose from, since the wheather was, and had been, terrible, so we could choose one that was a bit sheltered from the wind.

The facilities on this park are immaculate... everything, from the toilets to the showers to the restaurant looks (and smells) as if they're brand new, and very well maintained. This place is really run as a proper business.

The only downside, which the park has no infuence on, was the weather... it rained most of the time, with high winds from the south all the time. Some campers told us that this was the first September in five years with bad weather... just our luck... so after three nights, the weather forced us to look for something else, but again, there's no blame to the park.

When your up here, visit St. Ives, it's a beautiful walk down to the promenade, and if you don't feel up to the climb back up, busses between the town and Polmanter run during the daytime.

Thankyou so much for your fantastic review!
Such a shame that you had such wet weather for your visit, September really can be stunning, and one of our favourite months to enjoy St Ives after the children go back to school.
I'm really glad to hear that you were impressed by the site - the team have really high standards that we are very proud of.
We hope that you visit us again when you return to Cornwall - and that you get better weather next time!

Excellent campsite (even better value with ACSI card). Great pitch, very good facilities on site (shop, pub, food) and a great pub within 5 mins walk. Very pleasant walk into St Ives down a country lane (very fe cars) and a great bus service back for £1.50 each (dog free) to the campsite. Would return.

we stayed here for 3 nights and have to say it wouldn't be our last stay. situated a 20 minute walk from the lovely town of St Ives it offers alot on site. firstly a lovely a lovely warm wecome on arrival a very well stocked shop, a lovely clean warm swimming pool, take away food and a pub on site and a laundrette. The pitches are very spacious to allow privacy and some are service pitches and some aren't. The shower block is very modern and spotless with nice hot showers. most people on site walk down to St Ives and get the bus back for a few pounds each. St Ives has alot to offer and it has a train station that trains run every half hour to other towns/cities. St Ives has alot of Eateries with some lovely seafood places. The whole 3 days wasn't long enough to take in this beautiful site. very well recommended.

Yet again stayed at polmanter and yet again brilliant .Nothing to complain about because Polmanter is 5 star . The staff so very helpful . When we arrived our pitch was really wet I asked for hard standing it was sorted straight away . The staff in the office so helpful I said if they didn't have any hard standing it didn't matter they said no problem .I can't praise enough . The young man who kept the grounds so neat and tidy was a great lad so good asked if we needed any help . Advised us on the good pitches for next year as we are having a super pitch we have never been on one of them. The staff at polmanter are a credit to the place just great site great pitches I need not tell you it's the best site in cornwall if I could give polmanter 10 stars I would . SIMPLY THE BEST .Just a fantastic holiday

Great location for exploring the very end of England! Great facilities, nice bar with good variety of beer and cider on tap and food. Takeaway, games room. Was full but you don't feel cramped or hear lots of noise. Great singer on for one night. Would definitely return.
