In fact, the high praise it received in the Top 100 Sites Guide 2014, means it is surely one of the best campsites in Cornwall – and while tents, motorhomes and caravans are welcome, in that guide it makes the top 10 list of top sites for camping in the UK.
Campsites in Cornwall are popular holiday destinations and located on the north coast of Cornwall between Newquay and Padstow, this award-winning campsite offers lots of facilities for all the family, both those on two and four legs. Stunning scenery and an informal atmosphere seal the deal.
This site has been run by the Hill family for nearly 50 years and the grounds cover 36 acres – meaning there is plenty of space to let children and pets run around. Beyond the site there’s the historic market town of St Columb Major, picturesque beaches and the Eden Project within a few miles of the site. There are also pubs, takeaway food shops, leisure activities and surfing locations within a few miles of this campsite. So if you want to go camping in Cornwall but also enjoy the surf this region is so famous for, Trewan Hall could be the perfect place to stay.
On site, there is a lot for you and the family to get stuck into. The site has a 25-metre, heated swimming pool which can be open-air or covered depending on the season. A vast wooded area for scenic walks also serves as a place where dog owners can take their pet off the lead for exercise. In the evenings, this campsite offers free entertainment in the high season – acts appearing in the converted barn include local musicians, magicians and theatre performers.
Also at this Cornish campsite you can play table tennis, table football, billiards and snooker (the latter adults only). Large areas of field are available to play ball games on and a woodland playground is provided to keep little ones entertained. There are also the gardens of the manor house which are ideal for a pretty and tranquil stroll. In addition, there is a quiet room on site for those seeking some peace and quiet to enjoy a book or take advantage of the free Wi-Fi.
Trewan Hall also gives its guests extensive toilet and washing facilities. Showers and baths are available, alongside shaving points and hair dryers, as well as clothes washing and ironing facilities. One of the site’s blocks was recently rebuilt for 2013 providing even higher quality places to perform your ablutions.
The campsite is well drained and across the site there are 110 electric hook-up points each with a 10 amp supply.
The campsite has a shop which has hot food available all day and a local bakery also supplies fresh bread and cakes to the site. There are provisions for charging leisure batteries and other electronic devices. In addition, freezer packs may be refrozen, camping and Calor gas bottles can be exchanged, and there is also the option to rent bodyboards to enjoy the surf – well, you are taking a holiday in Cornwall, it would surely be rude not to!
The season opens in May and closes in September. Additional charges are placed on dogs but the site does not charge for extra cars, though you may not be able to park next to your pitch to allow access for other visitors.
Camping holidays in Cornwall have long been popular, so why not give the award winning Trewan Hall a try on your next Cornish adventure.
