Enquire Now You enquired

Trewethett Farm Caravan Club Site is a beautiful location for family camping and caravan holidays, found close to the coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The park is open from late March until early November every year, and welcomes non-members as well as members of The Caravan Club.

The park has 146 pitches in total, including six economy pitches, 58 hardstanding pitches and 18 tent pitches, welcoming touring caravans and motorhomes as well as tents.

Trewethett Farm Caravan Club Site offers a range of facilities to ensure guests are comfortable during their stay, including a laundrette, family washrooms, toilet blocks, chemical waste disposal and Wi-Fi.

This is a dog friendly campsite and there's a dedicated, on-site dog walking area, but please remember to keep your canine companion under control and clean up after him/her. And, of course, the fabulous surrounding countryside will provide a great many walking opportunities – with or without a dog.

This campsite in Cornwall sits on top of a cliff, overlooking the beautiful beach at Bossiney Cove. There's a challenging walk down to the beach that's not recommended for under 5s, but there are plenty of walks along the clifftop to be enjoyed. The beach is small and sandy, and cannot be accessed at high tide.

The larger and more family orientated beaches of Polzeath and Newquay are all within easy reach of the site, so guests always have an area of golden sands to head to and enjoy, with a wide range of activities available for miles along the coast. Pitch here and you're just a 30-minute drive from Polzeath and around an hour from the surfing paradise that is Newquay. In addition, Padstow, famous due to its connections to TV chef RIck Stein, is about a 50-minute drive away.

Rather closer to this campsite is the village of Tintagel – it's about a five-minute drive or a 40-minute walk from Trewethett Farm Caravan Club Site. This village, and Tintagel Castle that's just outside the village and right on the coast, are famous due to their associations with King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table and are some of the most visited places in the UK. There is also the so-called King Arthur's Footprint on Tintagel Island.

About a 40-minute walk or five- or 10-minute drive in the other direction from this campsite you'll find Boscastle, a fishing port and village, where the Museum of Witchcraft is one of the primary attractions. Much of the land is National Trust owned and there's a shop by the harbour.

The Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and also wild Bodmin Moor are close at hand if you're staying at Trewethett Farm Caravan Club Site on your motorhome tours, or your camping and caravan holidays in Cornwall. These stunning areas of countryside will give you memories to last a lifetime, whether you explore them on foot, by bike or on horseback. Or, if you're brave enough, pay a visit to Bodmin Jail.

And despite Trewethett Farm Caravan Club Site being near the north coast of Cornwall, stay here and you're still only around an hour by car from the Eden Project near St Austell, on the county's south coast.

We were meant to be going to Gwynedd, North Wales but we decided with Covid to keep our money local as we’ve seen how Covid has affected local businesses. My friend doesn’t have internet and books everything by phone. She phoned up to book 2nights here, on the phone she was asked what van she had, she explained at the moment it was just a van with plans to convert it but due to Covid was unable to obtain supplies.

We arrived and were greeted with the grumpiest woman ever, barking orders at us. We were given a piece of drain pipe and told to run around the campsite and choose a pitch placing the drain over the top. We turned right first and walked some distance not being able to find a space. It would be far better to show us the pitches on a map that were available and we could’ve gone and viewed them. When we came back to the office to tell them what pitch we chose, they then interrogated us about the van asking us if it was a registered campervan which it is not the response “I didn’t think it looked like one”! We explained that this was all explained on the phone when booking that it was in the process of being converted. We were told that it was in their terms and conditions that a van had to have a kitchen installed, again we didn’t see any terms and conditions because the booking was made over the phone (On speaking to the area manager a fitted kitchen is actually old advice anyway). We said we wouldn’t cook then and would get a takeaway but just let us stay. They reluctantly let us stay night but cancelled our second night. We didn’t know what was different about our money compared to anyone else’s. Everybody has had to start somewhere with their vans why should our van not be worthy! Very disappointing both of us have worked throughout the covid pandemic as frontline NHS staff and was taking our last holiday before the anticipated second wave so we were very disheartened by this. I was in tears and it put a downer on our holiday, we even contacted their area manager who was actually very nice and was very concerned. (Although she never returned our phonecall about our 2nd night stay)

The next day not knowing where we were gonna sleep that night and having booked a visit to Tintagel castle so not wanting to drive home, we spent the morning ringing other campsites. Checkout was at 12pm. As we didn’t know where we were going to stay we decided to use the facilities however they are closed between 10am and 12pm for cleaning. So we had to wait until 12pm as we were walking across to use the toilets a woman shouted across that we were late checking out and had to leave. Maybe you should change your checkout times to better accommodate your toilet clean, most people have a toilet break before commencing a journey.

Basically the staff are so rude, if they don’t like the look of you or your van you’re not allowed on, and they ruined my only holiday.

The views are fabulous if you’re lucky enough to get a good pitch.
The facilities are dated (along with the staff)

We tried to work with the company to come to an agreement but they’re now ignoring emails.

great position on top of the cliffs positioned between tintagel and Boscastle. Well maintained site with best facilities ever come across. Although the kids playground is very disappointing. Provides great views over the sea and of sunset also great cliff walks/ would say this is a must visit site
