  1. AVOID. TOTALLY UNRELIABLE. We have had a booking for a static caravan starting in 4 days time for many months. Today we get a phone call cancelling our booking using a gas leak as an excuse. Yes we got a full refund even an offer of 25% off another booking that we will most certainly never do as this has cost us dearly as we had other accommodation booked each end of this booking that will be impossible to keep and non refundable. We must have booked long before most others?? We live 200 miles away so can’t keep trotting back and forth to the west country. We had so many plans including visiting a recently bereaved friend and another with cancer.
    It has always been difficult getting a response from this place either by phone or email ever since we booked except of course for the request for payment! the one and only phone conversation being today to cancel us! We believe we have been gazumped price wise as there is zero accommodation available in the West Country in our budget. 4 days to get a gas fitter? I don’t think so!! We even offered to use the van without gas just electric as we would be eating out anyway but no not possible. We had heard that this sort of thing was going on in the West Country so will be adding our experience to the many reports about similar in National Media. We are FURIOUS!!!

  2. We visited in 2017 and hope to go back again soon. The facilities are adequate and what you expected at a naturist venue in England these
    include a bar and a swimming pool too. The site has static mobile homes for hire as well as caravan and camping pitches.
    The only other thing you need to bring with you is the sunshine

  3. My wife & I visited Carbeil for the week end July 2006. An excellent and very friendly site. Fairly small and pretty full the week end we were there but we were assured there is usually room available. Provided everything they advertise and we would recommend it.

    Mostly gently sloping and access through the village is a bit tricky during peak periods. Wide enough but numerous parked cars make it one way traffic.

  4. We have just returned from a very relaxing and enjoyable two week holiday at Carbeil, (Aug 06) with our touring caravan. From the warm welcome on our arrival, to the best wishes and a have a safe journey home, our hosts Lawrence & Julie and their loyal helpers Lindsey & John made sure we had a great holiday.

    This is a little gem of a site, an oasis ! set in its own valley. Its the ideal naturist site for everyone. The facilities are always clean & tidy, flower gardens a picture, theirs a pool with sun deck, next to a cosy bar and servery. The beach and village are just ten minuets walk, and many interesting places a short drive. Making this the perfect base for your Cornish naturist holiday.

    Whether you take your own tent, touring caravan, hire one, or stay B&B, your sure of a warm welcome at Carbeil.

    I note that Steve below says the roads through Downderry are narrow, They are no different from any other Cornish village,just take care, we towed our 6.8 metre caravan through with no problems

  5. The entrance to the site is quite difficult to get through. If your caravan is over 23 feet be very careful. Nice rustic place but we aged ten years getting there. Follow the owners’ instructions to the letter when getting directions. DO NOT use a SatNav

  6. A lovely little site if you want a quiet holiday. Access is OK so long as you don’t follow GPS. Come in from the Seaton end if you you have a Caravan/Campervan. A nice little bar next to a outdoor pool makes it ideal to relax by
