    I stayed in Daisy Bell tent 17th -19th July 2017 for my daughters graduation. We had an amazing time, the views from the tent are breathtaking. The tent is equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable, this including a gas BBQ, fire pit, bench, picnic table, camping stove, kettle, kitchen utensils, tea, coffee, sugar and a cool box is supplied to keep the wine chilled. The shower facilities are excellent and are kept immaculate. The owners Debbie and Joe are amazing and nothing is too much trouble.We are booked again for September and really looking forward to it.

    We returned this year in May and saw that Debbie and Joe have been working hard putting in a drive and adding more facilities. We stayed in Holly Caravan this time which was very sweet. We are booked back in for June and September. We love the site, the views, spacious pitches, cleanliness of toilets and shower and the little touches that make this such a lovely place to stay. If you want peace, tranquility, stunning views, starry skies warming yourself round your fire pit, this is the place for you. Debbie and Joe are so welcoming and helpful, we won’t stay anywhere else when camping in West Cornwall.

    Debbie and Joe were wonderful hosts. They welcomed us and made sure we felt comfortable in their lovely campsite. All facilities were spotlessly clean and the pitches were a fantastic size with the added bonus of a fire pit. The views were incredible and the location was perfect being so close to every increible attraction the west of Cornwall has to offer. We will most certainly be heading back there as soon as possible. Thankyou both so much and I’m sure we will see you soon. 11/10 ⭐️⭐️

  7. Dropped anchor 😊 What an amazing unforgettable experience, this sea view camping in West Cornwall is beautifully located just a whisker away from picturesque Porthleven (shops, good pubs and restaurants, harbour and pier and famous clock tower), with stunning panoramic views and fantastic extensive nature, the camping is ideal as a base for a walking holiday as it is situated close to the Coastal Path, we stayed here for 12 days in July and wished we could stay longer, but what makes Dropped Anchor a great(est) place are Debbie and Joey, they’re the most warm and hospitable people nothing is too much trouble you can ask them anything, Debbie and Joey have crafted a campsite which allowed both kids and adults to have an amazing time, they are so generous with their time to make sure you are having a wonderful holiday, really can’t rate Dropped Anchor highly enough, I’m sure we’ll be back again some day, thank you, miss you !

    We were planning on moving about during our 2 weeks away, but we ended up staying at The Dropped Anchor for the whole holiday. The campsite is lovely, the pitches are very generous, the site is extremely well maintained and the services are spotlessly clean and tidy. Debbie and Joe have put a lot of care and effort into their site and it makes all the difference. There are great views from the site, as implied by the name of course. The view of the sea and the bay, overlooking Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole in the distance is lovely and makes a wonderful backdrop to a pleasant evening sitting out with a G&T waiting for the sun to set. The other great view is the night sky, we had a few clear evenings during our stay and the sky really is dark, The milky Way looks stunning blazing across the ink black sky. Appreciation of the night sky is helped by the fact that Debbie and Joe keep the ambient lighting on the site to a minimum allowing your eyes to fully adjust for wonderful views. I would certainly recommend this site to any fellow astronomer. The cherry on the cake is how hospitable Debbie and Joe are, we and our dog Dudley were made to feel genuinely welcome. The next time we make it all the way down to the area we'll definitely be back. Thanks for a great holiday guys!

    And relax ... Debbie and Joe are brilliant hosts and their campsite allows you to recharge your batteries whilst looking out to sea. Such a peaceful haven. Campfires on each pitch are a popular evening activity. Space for children to play and there are 2 glamping tents and 1 small caravan to rent if friends do not have their own unit.

    We have loved our stay at the Dropped Anchor. It has gone by way too fast though. Brilliant campsite that is in a great location for exploring the fantastic coastline. After being out for the day it was so nice to be able chill out around the campfire. Thanks Debbie and Joe for being such great hosts, we hope to be back sometime.

    We stayed at Debbie’s lovely site on a very rainy night but although very wet it was made up for in how tranquil it was. Debbie was super friendly and the campsite was exactly what we love. Lovely and quiet, friendly, clean and beautiful. I loved the little kind notes that asked you in the most lovely, clear way how keep everyone safe in the current covid pandemic. Thank you again for a lovely stay. We will definitely be back, Laura and Darren xx
