We have just come back from 2 weeks staying at Chy Carne and it was the best camping experience either of us has had. We had booked somewhere else but it turned out to be unacceptable quality, luckily we found Chy Carne and it was everything we hoped for celebrating our first wedding anniversary.
The views are stunning, the site is exceptionally well maintained, the facilities are good quality, clean and plentiful. The pitches are generous sizes with individual electric hookup and water point close by.
The location is fantastic for the whole of the south west of Cornwall with so many local villages, coves and beaches to explore.
We would have had a wonderful time with all those elements, but the thing that made it really special was the warm welcome that we received from Sue and Brian. It was Brian’s 50th birthday party and everyone on the site was invited to join the party at the Marquee Arms. It was the best party we have been too, the kind of family party you wish your own family had. The food was beautiful, the bar was free (!!), there was dancing and singing and a wonderful time was had by all.
We definitely plan on returning to Cornwall and especially to stay at the wonderful Chy Carne.
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday! We decided to book a static caravan instead of camping, and we were not disappointed. The caravan was immaculate and very well equipped with everything I needed! We had ample room for our family and the beds were so comfortable! Sue and her wonderful staff again didn’t disappoint, nothing was too much trouble for them! This was our 4th year at this little piece of Cornish heaven. The site is still as lovely and clean as always and the cleaning staff and management work tirelessly throughout the day cleaning the shower and toilet blocks. There is a 50p charge for the showers which is an improvement, as in previous years there was no charge and guests tended to spend ages in the shower causing the most awful queues! 50p gives you ample time to have your shower. We can recommend the onsite eating facilities, the pizza shop serving freshly cooked delicious pizzas to your door was a favourite with the children and Shaka Carne serving the local catch of the day was a favourite with the adults! I shall definitely return next year, in fact I have already given the staff my dates for next year! We love this site and the only bad thing you will experience is the sadness of leaving it! Thank you to Sue, Brian and all the fab staff for a wonderful holiday! Missing you already! Joanna Stephenson
We have just got back from yet another fantastic holiday. We have been camping here for 3 years on the trot and have loved every visit made. The staff on site are friendly and will help with what ever your needs are. The showers and toilets are always kept clean. The shop is always well stocked with most essentials needed. The snack shack and pizza shop serve great food. And the Marquee Arms is a lovely place to sit, have a nice drink and get involved in either the quiz night, Bingo, pool comp etc, whilst getting to know other people. Aimee, you are the star of the show when it comes to the entertainment, you make yourself known to everyone and always have time for a chat and to make sure everyone is ok. This is in a prime location with so much to do around the area. Thank you so much Sue for telling us about Coverack, what a stunning place to visit with a lovely beach, great day out. We were all very sad to leave and the kids keep asking how long till we come back. We will definitely see you next year for no doubt another cracking holiday. xxx
We had a lovely time with our kids, the staff were really friendly and very helpful, campsite really nice. The caravan was nice and clean, lots of space. We’re definitely going back down next year.Wayne & Claire Tinsley
Thank you for a great time at Chy Carne!
To anybody who has never stayed at Chy Carne and is reading this, you simply must go (as long as you enjoy great views and having fun; hopefully that’s everyone).
We have also added some reviews on these websites and you can view other reviews as well.
Again, thank you to all the people who keep Chy Carne going.

Just returned from a great week in Cornwall and a pleasant stay at Chy Carne. Very welcoming staff, pleasant and helpful and the facilities were just dandy. I haven’t been camping since I was a Scout many years ago when going to the loo meant digging a hole in the ground so I have no complaints. Beer tent was great, quiz, bingo what else do you need? If I was to have one tiny, tiny gripe it would be that the WiFi was weak down the field but it wasn’t a big deal. It would have helped so we could look up places to go etc as mobile internet was poor in that area too but hey we were camping and sometimes you just have to let go of technology eh and get back to basics. In conclusion I recommend this camp site and we would love to come back next year so thank you.Andy Hough
Have just returned from a week camping at Chy Carne. Best site I have stopped on! Owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and facilities on site were great – especially the marquee bar and the evening entertainment there. Only downside was the smaller toilet and shower blocks didn’t seem to be checked regularly – toilets ran out of paper and soap twice on our visit, but this was rectified as soon as we told the owners. Owners have made great effort to stop the showers getting full of grass/mud etc but other campers still seem incapable of wiping their feet on a mat! Can I suggest a broom is left in the showers so that people can sweep them before use? Thanks for our stay, will definitely be back!!!!Charlotte Thomas
We’ve just got back after our very first camping trip – choosing Chy Carne, and staying in Pitch 102!
From the minute you drive into the park, you are greeted with such warm and friendly staff and a noticeable clean environment. As the week went on, all the staff went that extra mile to please everyone (although that’s impossible for some) and I would really recommend this site. It’s fab!
The Big Daddy’s Pizza shop sold amazing pizzas, as well as the Shacka Carne which sold delicious, varied and reasonably priced food from burgers to fresh prawns. The reception/shop was so useful (especially if you forget anything like us) and the showers and toilets were always cleaned, bright and early! Rubbish on site was always emptied, so it really goes without saying; I can’t fault Chy Carne and will be going back again.
In fact, I was so impressed I will be doing a little feature about them on my radio show. A special big thanks to Peter (what a great guy), Bob, Brian, Sue and ALL the staff – You are quite simply amazing!!
To sum up Chy Carne in one word, it would be “Awesome”.Darren Yates
Hello Sue and Brian, Just to say had a lovely week at Chycarne. Weather was amazing. You have all been really busy and made so many great improvements to the site for this year, gets better every year. The new caravans are so spacious, clean and tidy (a great team, keeping it all clean and welcoming). Lots of room between the caravans so you don’t feel on top of one another. Have recommended it to so many people so hopefully you will be busy !!!!. Visited the bar and had a lovely evening sat there with the sea views. Take away is very handy with lots of choice if you don’t fancy cooking or a pizza delivered to your door. Never want to come home, will be back soon. Thanks Anne, Mike and KatieAnne Kelland
Recently myself and 18 of my girlfriends stayed at Chy Carne for a hen do. We all had an amazing time. I love Chy Carne because it caters for everyone’s needs. Sue and her family were so relaxed, inviting and accommodating. Thank you Sue I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to say it face to face. See you again one day. Norma
Just wanted to say thanks to all at Chy Carne after another fantastic holiday with you last week. Sue & Brian you should be really proud of your site and staff. The changes from last year are superb. You and your staff made our stay one to treasure again and we can’t wait to return, hopefully later this year but if not, then certainly next. We’ve recommended the site to many family members and friends since our visit last year. Two came with us this year and they both loved it as much we did. Others have told us they also want to pay a visit. Couldn’t believe how late the shop and pizza place were open till. Thanks again for a wonderful time, not just from us but the dogs as well.

Hi Sue, we have just got back from your lovely site. We came last week and stayed in one of your lovely caravans No10. The site was fantastic, all the facilities where very useful and very clean, especially the toilet and shower area. The staff were very accommodating, trying to get us what we wanted at no inconvenience. The views where amazing and our daughter loved the adventure playground. All in all you hospitality and site where lovely and we are already talking about booking for next year, as we cannot wait! Thank you again look forward to booking and seeing you next year. Emma, Richard, Hope, Marion and the dog Poppy.Emma Smith
Fantastic week, really good sized pitch, friendly owners made us feel very welcome, good facilities good food on site and nice clean well kept surroundings, will definitely be back in the future.Adrian Griffin
Having just spend 5 days at your campsite, I would like to say that we had a great time, the site was more than we expected, the pitches were of a great size and well maintained, the shower/toilets blocks were very clean and I loved the radio being played whilst going about our business. The whole area of the site was clean and tidy and great views of the sea but more than anything the owners Brian and Sue were a massive help to us and others on our first night. When we arrived the weather was so bad we had to abandon the tent and they put us in a caravan for the night. Also their son Stan was a taxi for us one evening to the local village as the private hire wanted £24 return it was only a 3 mile round trip. So Beki and I would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU for all your help and we look forward to returning later in the year.Chris Hill
