General

  • Quiet site with excellent views and good local walks
  • Pub/restaurant, village shop and play park within walking distance
  • A mile and a half from Perranporth beach

This peaceful Perranporth site is in properly prime position: it's set in spectacular Cornish countryside with first-rate views, and has easy access to Newquay and Truro as well as Perranporth. The nearest beach is a mere mile and a half away.

Reen Cross Campsite is a family-friendly park, welcoming families and couples only (and dogs, as long as they're well-behaved types and are kept on leads at all times while on site, ta). Pitches are large and well spaced out, on a flat camping field of around three acres, so there's plenty of room for the kids – and grownups – to play.

Among the amenities are chemical disposal and facilities for ice pack freezing; new shower, toilet and laundry/washing-up facilities were added in 2017.

Barbecues are allowed if raised off the ground. If you want to sup out, Reen Cross's local village is Goonhavern half a mile away, home of the refurbished in 2013 New Inn.

    Myself and my family (2x adults 4xchildren) enjoyed a mini break here at the very end of the summer holidays and it was fantastic. The extremely friendly site manager met us on arrival and told us everything we needed to know. The site was also very flexible on arrival and departure times which we found very helpful with having to sort 4 children out..The facilities were clean, shower was warm and the location was close to the beach. I wouldn't hesitate to come back or to recommend to others

    Very friendly place, quite and peaceful, nice big pitch,

    Disliked: 

    Cold showers in main block but found the older showers we're electric and we're ok but we had to walk over to other field, but untidy in places, buildings unfinished, long term campers who live on site could do with proper pitch not just dumped wherever

    The campsite was really spacious and friendly, the owner was there to greet us as we arrived and each morning went round to check everyone and everything was ok.
    The site was just a nice walk away from the town centre or a short drive.
    The shower blocks were kept clean and tidy at all times.
    There were facilities for us to use if we if we wanted to wash our clothes for a small fee also I freezer free of charge.
    I would definitely recommend this site to anyone and hopefully I will be returning next year.

    Disliked: 

    The shower temperature as it did go from warm to very hot to cold then back very hot so was no control over all.
    But this will not put me off returning to this site.

    We really enjoyed our stay ay Reen Cross campsite. The facilities were small but very clean and perfectly adequate for the site. The site itself was smallish (which we preferred) and friendly and ideal for our holiday. We look forward to staying there again.

    Lol, the owner was helpful and friendly. He came round every morning to check we were okay and that we didn’t have any problems. The location is perfect, it is just a 5 min drive to Perranporth and a 10 min drive to Newquay. There is a pub just up the road,too!

Directions


Reen Cross Campsite is half a mile from Goonhavern. From the A30, take the B3825 towards Perranporth. When you reach the T-junction at Goonhavern, turn left onto A3075 and go straight over the twin roundabouts. Immediately after these roundabouts, turn right at the signpost for Reen Cross. Follow the tree-lined lane to the cross roads where you turn right to see the entrance to the park on your right.

Local attractions

The beaches at Perranporth are less than two miles from Reen Cross Campsite and along with Newquay are a top foamy spot for north Cornwall surfing and kitesurfing. Drop into the tourist office to get discount vouchers for the local surf schools if you'd like to learn how to board.

Perranporth is also home to the gigs and pints of The Watering Hole, the only UK pub to be set right on the sands, and like all the seaside towns around Cornwall has easy access to the South West Coast Path, the spectacular 630-mile trail running from Minehead in Somerset along the Cornwall and Devon coasts down to Poole Harbour in Dorset.

From Perranporth, hike to Newquay in one direction or to St Agnes or Portreath in the other; all places have provisions for pitstops for traversing further should you and your feet wish.

Highly viewsome teeing off at Perranporth Golf Club is about a mile away; horse riding stables within the same distance, and a play park and football field are close to the site.

Within easy driving distance are days out at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm, Newquay's Holywell Bay Fun Park, the Lappa Valley Steam Railway, and DairyLand Farmworld, the award-winning attraction near Newquay.
