General

  • Friendly family-run touring park in spectacular Cornish countryside
  • Secluded yet well placed for local beaches (2.5 miles) and attractions
  • A few minutes' walk from restaurants and a traditional Cornish pub

There are reasons aplenty why Cornwall's Higher Trevaskis Caravan Park is a highly popular place for gratified guests. Its Hayle setting, for starters, in a nifty locale for getting around the top Cornish highlights and tackling the county's active options: it's only a few miles from sandy beaches at Godrevy, Gwithian and Porthkidney Sands for surfing, sunbathing and rockpooling, and within eight of St Michael's Mount for trips to one of Cornwall's most famed spots. The Eden Project, The Flambards Experience and Paradise Park all are within easy reach.

Then there's all the little touches laid on by the thoughtful and friendly team, such as free mobile phone charging, spotless amenities, and a new family shower room with constant free hot water. Being thoughtful souls, there's no charge to use the wifi hotspot but they'll happily take any donations you'd like to make for their charity of choice. Views? But of course: Higher Trevaskis is in a scenic (and secluded) setting, and has plenty of pitch space among greenery galore and loads of room for play.

Kids can ride their bikes around the park, tackle the swings, slides and table tennis of the play area or challenge the grownups to a game of some sort in the sports field. After all that, get the barbecue sorted for peaceful evenings in this serene space: a small shop is on site for supplies, and a much-recommended farm shop is within a few minutes walk (along with a trad Cornish pub and two restaurants if you'd rather eat out).

    Loved the site itself which is divided into sections round trees and hedges which offer privacy and sense of enclosure. Also the cleanliness of the facilities, help from staff and the location. Highly recommended.

Great site to stay at, will come again. Very clean and quiet. 04/09/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jon M. Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent cleanliness and attention to detail. A smaller site but with plenty of space and facilities just right. Liked the washing up facilities, unisex showers, wet suit wash and dog showers. Good football pitch and nicely spaced pitches. Liked the surrounding area (farm fields), so generally quiet. Visit by the fish n chip van was very good. Pirate FM in the shower/toilet block was a different, but nice touch! Really well positioned with < 10min drive along minor roads to a fab beach (half of which is dog friendly).

    Disliked: 

    The nearby rail crossing was a little distracting as the trains sound their horns when going through, but we got used to it. Wi-Fi was suggested but my phone could not find any signals.

  • Liked: 

    Spacious pitches, well laid out, toilet block very clean and well thought out. Lots of water points dotted around and a useful on site shop. Great location for exploring South Cornwall

    Disliked: 

    Playground equipment was a bit dated, our young granddaughter visited and insisted on trying out the swings and seesaw but we were rather nervous about it. Could do with updating.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. I agree that our swings and seesaw are dated BUT they are safe and checked regularly. Just because they look old doesn't mean they are unsafe! However, our site is a working progress having recently taken over, we have lots of plans in the pipe to upgrade facilities.

    This is a lovely and well kept campsite, we had a great time here, the only thing is the toilets which are beautifully clean are quite a long way from the other end of the campsite where we were staying.

Local attractions

There's loads of choice for attractions and activities with a stay at this fine and peaceful place, including Trevaskis Farm half a mile away, where you can meet the animals, have a meal at the restaurant or pick up produce at the farm shop.

Nearby Paradise Park is a popular family stop around this part of Cornwall: have a morning around the wildlife sanctuary before letting the kids loose in the Jungle Barn play centre. Kids will also likely clamour for a day at The Flambards Experience near Helston, and for a delve into the many activities of the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, to meet the Vikings, learn how to sail and climb a 100ft tower.

Beaches are a must in these parts too: the closest is Gwithian, two and a half miles away, with three miles of golden sand to laze around on, rockpools to thoroughly investigate, and waters popular for surfing.

Other options are fab St Michael's Mount with medieval castle and church; the arty vibe of Tate St Ives, and the giant biomes of the Eden Project, near St Austell.

Must see

  • Cornwall Industrial Discovery Centre (4.4 miles)
  • Tate St Ives (6.1 miles)
  • St Michael's Mount (7.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Godrevy (3.1 miles)
