  • Quiet, rural, sheltered and well-maintained site on a working farm
  • Within four miles of Hayle and Marazion on the north and south coasts
  • Barbecues allowed: buy locally-sourced meat and veg within two miles
It's a truth splendidly acknowledged that any Cornwall site will be fably placed. A berth anywhere in this cracking county will have happy adventurers within easy reach of beaches, craggy coastline, watersports, the South West Coast Path, splendid old sights including tin mines and old lighthouses… and world-famed hits like the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan: you'll never have to drive over an hour and a half for the whole heap. And how nifty then is a site on the western side of Cornwall, to be handily set for both north and south beaches? Step forward, terrific Trevessa Farm, between the north coast at Hayle and the south coast at Marazion: both must-sees and both within a paltry four miles. You're so stunningly set here that you'll need to stick around for at least a few weeks (show the boss the site pics to plead your case): Trevessa is in a peaceful, scenic, rural and sheltered spot with an excellently-maintained pitching field centred around a working farm (do neigh/moo hi to the horses and cattle while here). There's easy access to the South West Coast Path from here, along with top Cornwall spots like St Ives and Sennen Cove. The site covers three-quarters of an acre, edged by a pretty footpath meandering down to the River Hayle below. It's a couple of miles from here to the nearest village, St Erth, where there's a village shop and post office, a pub and a lively Saturday morning market selling locally-grown veg, free-range eggs, homemade pies, bread, fresh fish and locally produced organic beef, pork, sausages and bacon… it's just as well that barbecues are allowed back at your smashingly scenic Cornish farm base.

Electric optional grass tent pitch

Liked: Showers were great, probably the best we’ve had on a campsite. Grass was cut short and picked up. Lovely quiet pitch with nice views. Not aware of any WiFi but the phone signal was good. Owner seemed friendly. Nice to see recycling bins for separating rubbish.

Disliked: Pitches were on a bit of a slope but not bad enough to slide down the bed!

Local attractions

Well now, where does one start? At Hayle first perhaps, to access the South West Coast Path to Portreath (11.9 miles) or the other way to St Ives – six miles, followed by a bite or two in a seafood restaurant. More first-rate scrambles are around nearby West Penwith or Land's End peninsula, home to arty St Ives as well as beaches and coves so spectacularly scenic they'd nearly make you weep (as you well might, once the boss summons you back home). This is one of the most lushly scenic parts of Cornwall – yes, that's saying something – have picworthy times at world-famed Sennen Cove as well as at Lamorna Cove and Porthcurno, all within 35 minutes' drive. Weeks' worth of other options are around for day trips, like Paradise Park at Hayle (10 minutes), boat trips on the Fal from Falmouth (45 minutes) and hunting for antiques inland at Truro (50 minutes). The Eden Project is an hour and 15 minutes away.
