General

  • Spacious and quiet site in Cornwall with two fishing lakes
  • A 10-minute drive from Newquay and three National Trust surf beaches
  • Tackle shop on site; five minutes' drive from pubs and shops

Fisherfolk, form a queue: this fab site on Cornwall's north coast has a pair of fishing lakes as well as sea fishing trips nearby.

Gwinear Camping and Fishing is a quiet spacious site about five minutes' drive from the villages of Cubert and Crantock. It's accessed by a track road, so stays here are without traffic noise, but is just a short drive from the A3075 connecting visitors to Newquay and top attractions all across Cornwall.

The grassy field is spacious and level, and visitors heap praise on the spotless modern washrooms with roomy and hot showers. If you're into the joys of fishing, you'll be overjoyed over here: Gwinear has a pair of well-stocked fishing lakes open all year. New large pegs and paths all the way around make the lakes great for easy access and long days, and a tackle shop is on site if you've forgotten to bring a vital bit of kit.

Cubert and Crantock are handily close with pubs and shops, and supermarkets for more extensive supplies and sustenance are in Newquay.

    Central to all the great beaches ,the site is clean and well kept,Andy never stopped cleaning the site from morning to dusk.the new toilet block ,the view of the lakes and the walk around .

    Disliked: 

    The main road can be a bit of a nightmare getting off the site and bussy times. And could do with a small area for children to play if I'm being picky.

Local attractions

You can reach a trio of blooming fine beaches within a 10-minute drive from your base at Gwinear Camping and Fishing: Hollywell Bay, Crantock and Poly Joke are National Trust-maintained beaches with a mix of soft sands, dunes, rockpools and top surf, with far fewer crowds than nearby hotspots like Fistral.

For walks both lapped by the waves and high on the cliffs, it's 10 minutes' drive to link up with the mighty 630-mile South West Coast Path. A good half-day section from Newquay takes you to Bedruthan Steps (half an hour by car) for clifftop vistas, steep steps down to a secluded beach (check tide times), rock climbing and a welcome café.

Inland, the smart fishing town of Padstow (40 minutes) marks the start of the Camel Trail, a 17-mile track taking walkers, cyclists and horse riders through some of Cornwall's finest countryside. Padstow's a popular stop for fish too, eaten battered on the beach, served up smart in restaurants or bought to grill up back at the base. If you want to land your own, there are various sea fishing options on offer in Newquay; if you prefer your fish in a tank, the Blue Reef Aquarium is a real gem.

For family days out, it's half an hour to Camel Creek Adventure Park, a heady mix of crocodiles, meerkats, rides, activities and a 5D cinema. The big-name rainforest biospheres of The Eden Project and the elegant Lost Gardens of Heligan are 40 minutes away.
