General

  • Craft and countryside site three miles from Newquay
  • Classes, workshops and farm shop with fresh baked goodies daily
  • Communal feast nights serving stonebaked pizza, curry and hog roast

Cor. It only opened in summer 2014, but Newquay campsite Coastal Valley Camping and Crafts has added all sorts of clever little touches already: for example, might you fancy sampling the baked goodies that are available to order from the farm shop on a daily basis?

The crafty plans for Coastal Valley since its first season include expanding the current weaving and painting classes into a full curriculum for avid artistes, covering bushcraft skills, silk painting and woodworking among others – all available for a reasonable extra charge.

Although it’s only three miles from busy Newquay, Coastal Valley is in such a cannily rural location that you won’t see a single road or house from the site, just the site stream, cracking Cornish countryside all around and a blaze of colour in spring and summer from the silver aspen trees, gorse, daffodils, agapanthus and buddleia. (If you visit in autumn, there are berry many opportunities for foraging blackberries, rosehips and sloes, to which you might say ‘bramble brandy and sloe gin’.)

Three beaches, including the two and a half mile stretch of spectacular Watergate Bay, are within walking distance via more cracking countryside.

Other crafty additions on site include communal feast nights starring stonebaked pizza, curry and hog roast, a nature trail for wily wildlife watchers to spot rabbits, occasional deer and the resident stoat, and picnic tables and benches peppered all around for alfresco eats.

Pitches and facilities are set up equally shrewdly: guests in the well-maintained grass ‘touring ring’ have access to award-winning bathroom facilities with free hot showers; and another adroit little touch is the well-equipped self-catering kitchen with gas hob cookers, grills, microwave, two fridges and a freezer, double sink and drainer. All in all, really rather resourceful…

Please note

    Tanya and Andy who run the site were very friendly and helpful. Despite craft classes finishing at end of August Tanya organised a willow weaving class for us and 8 others which was brilliant. Organised a pizza van to come during the week and a ‘real coffee van every Sunday morning. The toilets were kept very clean and the general feeling on the small site was very relaxed and friendly and many people returning year after year and some people many trips each year

A Little Gem of a Site with the Friendliest Staff and a Green Ethos 30/08/2018

    We recently spent 7 nights at Coastal Valley, taking a single pitch for our 4m Bell Tent and 12 x 12'' Event Shelter. From the moment we arrived and met Andy and Tanya, we were made to feel so welcome. Their passion and committment for what they do at Coastal Valley - providing a great camping experience with a solid, green ethos at the heart of it was clear from the start. Andy takes great pleasure in not only outlining the fantastic facilities available to you on site but also goes to great length to make sure you know what's available in the local area. The shop is well stocked and there is the added luxury of being able to place daily orders for pastries, fresh breads, scones etc from the Chough Bakery. Additionally, we had The Sisters on site for 2 mornings, providing fresh coffee and vegan cakes and pastries; a mobile pizza van, baking fresh stone-baked pizzas one night and a mobile Mexican food stall the next. Properly spoilt were we!

    The facilities are excellent, with an immaculate shower/toilet block and a shared kitchen, with microwave, gas hobs, 2 washing up basins and a communal fridge freezer to share (great fun playing ice-block Tetris everyday!). The conversations had here and the acquaintances made were excellent. There's a nice big green space in front of the glamping field for French Cricket, rounders etc.

    The vibe here was lovely too. Not too many pitches in the camping area and plently of space for the kids to run round, swing on the rope swing over the brook and just generally burn energy! Very quiet at night too; everyone repsectful of each other. Boardmasters 2018 was concluding the weekend we arrived and there were party-goers and surfers on site but they were all lovely and added to the overall great vibe at the site.

    Above all was Andy and Tanya's willingness to help at all times and their omnipresence. Andy rides for the Cornish Blood Bank, so honesty donations to this worthy cause were taken in-lieu of complimentary gas in the kitchen or the hairdryers in the toilets blocks. They were always around, smiling, willing to offer advice on excursions or just share silly stories! Jason was also lovely and should take credit for helping too - along with others I have not credited.

    Upshot is, we loved this site, would heartily recommend and WILL be returning in the future. Tanya even sourced me a couple of cases of Korev in my our of need!

    Having to move the cars away from your pitch ( I understand their logic but don't like it) and park them up.

    An excellent camp site very close to Newquay - £10 each way in a taxi. Despite there being many static caravans as you drive towards the campsite,they are invisible once you arrive and it is a pleasant natural retreat surrounded by nature. It has modern well manufactured and clean wash facilities and even a small communal kitchen equipped with a couple burners and cooking utensils. Welcoming and helpful staff too. I look forward to returning again soon.

Directions


On the Newquay Rd, A3059, take the turning right to the RAF camp/ Treloy Park and left down a little unnamed road. It is very narrow and steep. Ignore satnavs that say turn right into Hendra Paul Cottages, instead continue ALL the way to the bottom and at the T-junction turn right (not left like a lot of sat navs tell you to) then follow directions below from the horse stables.
N.B. Touring caravans and motorhomes are strongly advised NOT to take this route, instead continue on the Newquay A3059 road to Quintrell Downs, Newquay. Take a right and then another right and at 2 double islands follow sign post to Porth, and follow directions from Travelogue Rd below.

Follow the signs to Watergate Bay, off the B3276 Watergate Road. Take the Trevelgue Road for 1.5 miles. Ignore the 'no through road' sign, pass the stables on your left and at the bottom of the road you should see our sign.

Turn right, keep the stream on your right, and take the road on to the site between 2 pampas grasses.

Please do not turn right by Smugglers Campsite (some satnavs suggest this) - this will take you the wrong side of the valley.

Local attractions

Although it’s a tad tricky to pick a ‘best north Cornwall beach’, the sands and waves of Watergate Bay are a first stop for many visitors to this part of the coast, whether they want to bake gently on the sand or hit the surf with a new board from one of the surf shops.

Once a hard day of sunbathing/surfing has been had, amble your way gently to one of the well-regarded Watergate Bay restaurants: Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall and the Beach Hut are both popular spots and, as might be expected, come with a side order of sand and sea views.

Celeb food fans also have the four Rick Stein restaurants at Padstow eight miles away to make their way through; walk or bike it all off afterwards at the Camel Trail (or trot along on horseback if you’re feeling particularly full).

Whipisderry beach on the north coast road just past Porth is another early port of call for visitors to Newquay and its surroundings, and was named one of the best 20 beaches in Europe by beachcombers at the Sunday Times. It’s less busy than Watergate Bay even at the height of summer.

At low tide, dig into the rockpools to see what you can find, or take a torch and explore the cavernous caves including the Cathedral Cavern and its tunnels, the Boulder Cavern and the Banqueting Hall. (Whipisderry isn’t lifeguarded, so check the tide times carefully if you are planning to cave.)

Also around Newquay, Fistral beach and Mawgan Porth are other big pulls for surfers, but once out of the water there’s lots to do on land too: acclaimed Newquay Zoo and the Blue Aquarium Reef, Newquay Golf Club and its spectacular views over the Atlantic, sea fishing and boat hire all along the coast, and family days out at Buccaneer Bay (aaaarrr) or Dairyland Farm World.

The Eden Project, one of Cornwall’s most famous attractions, is about 15 miles from Coastal Valley.
