- Peaceful park ten minutes' walk from Mawgan Porth Beach
- Spectacular scenery
- Games room, playground, library and private bathrooms
Peace, perfect peace. Escape the crowds for some quality shut-eye at this impeccable site tucked among the trees and bordered by a stream: there’s no pub, club or evening entertainment, and a strict no-noise policy applies after 10.30pm. The scenery and the facilities at Sun Haven Valley Holiday Park are great, and it’s a mere ten-minute saunter down a shady woodland path to reach the glorious Mawgan Porth Beach.
Children are welcome (there’s a good playground and well-equipped games room) and campers will find some thoughtful touches around the site, such as the library and optional private bathrooms.
For the ultimate bucolic idyll, book a pitch backing onto the trout stream and keep your eyes peeled for otters, herons and kingfishers...

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Follow the A30 down past Bodmin to the Newquay turn-off.
Take the off-ramp at the “Highgate Hill” junction, signposted Newquay A392 & Wadebridge A39, to join the roundabout underneath the A30. Turn right, taking the A39 towards Wadebridge.
At the next roundabout ¾ mile on, again follow the A39 towards Wadebridge.
At the next roundabout 2 miles on, turn left on the A3059 towards Newquay
Some 2¾ miles on, just past the garage ( still there in 2009) turn right on the B3276 towards St. Mawgan, Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay.
Drive on to the T-junction (2¾ miles on ) & turn right on the B3276 towards Mawgan Porth & Padstow.
Follow the road & you will go downhill & round a sharp turn into Mawgan Porth at beach level.
Cross the bridge and a hundred yard or so further on, just before you start to climb the hill there is right turn (Chapel Road) that leads inland away from the sea.This is the only road leading inland from Mawgan Porth beach. Turn right into this, with the crazy golf course/pitch and putt on your left.
A quarter mile further on you will pass through a very sharp 'S' bend and we are half a mile beyond that on the left. Please note that this last half mile is a "Cornish lane with "Cornish Hedges" (6ft stone walls covered with turf) and this is effectively a single way road with passing places. We note that the local bus company travels it hourly in single deckers & once a day with a double decker bus. If you call us we can tell you what time the hourly bus will be travelling that last half mile.
We are on the left-hand side of the road – a double width entrance with a 13-foot arch over it supported by stone pillars, so if you are in the right place it’s difficult to miss.
Reception is just inside the gate on the left. We look forward to seeing you and hope you have a pleasant journey!
Aside from its acres of golden sand, rock pools and caves, Mawgan Porth has a café, supermarket and pub, as well as a small surf school, crazy golf and pitch and putt (more serious golfers will find an 18-hole golf course only a mile away).
It goes without saying that there is great walking in the area, not least along the South West Coastal Path, and Sun Haven’s friendly owners will happily supply guests with suggested routes for all abilities.
Anglers can fish for carp, tench and bream in the lakes next door to the park, or try and net a trout from the brook; there are plenty of other well-stocked lakes in the area, and regular sea-fishing trips depart from the likes of Padstow and Newquay. Both these towns can be reached in about 15 minutes by car (or hop on a bus outside the park gates) and offer a wealth of things to see and do.
