  • 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...

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!

Local attractions

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.

Terms and conditions

Please read the park terms and conditions below and the terms and conditions.

Additional terms

Families and couples only. We have no club, no bar and a very strict silence after 10.30pm policy.

Please note: we are in the quietest countryside, there is no background noise at night so a silence/no-noise after 10.30pm policy is enforced by patrolling wardens. If you cannot take this please do not come - you will be asked to leave if you disturb others. During the day, noise may not be made that can be heard from outside the pitch or that is to the annoyance of others - so this excludes use of TVs in awnings, radios, CD/music players - particularly if 'car-based', musical instruments etc.

Payment card details must be confirmed to the park within 5 working days or the booking will be considered as cancelled by the putchaser.

Families with teenagers

Please note we have no club, no bar and no evening entertainment and only a small games room. Please consider this carefully as we may not be a park particularly suited to your teenagers unless they are surfers happy with a beach 10 minutes walk away. Children under 16 yrs old must be back at their accommodation by 9.40pm.

Families with children

Children under 16 yrs old must be back at their accommodation just after 9.40pm or accompanied by an adult. Parents are responsible for their children at all times and must familiarise themselves with the site and signage on arrival. Children must not use the toilets/wash area as a playground. The playground is suitable for children from 5 to 12 years old, but parental supervision is essential.

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and only exercised off the site. The dog may not accompany children walking around site. Dogs are not allowed in our caravans unless they are shown on your invoice and are not allowed on the main lawns at any time. Dogs must never be left unattended in either our or your accommodation/vehicle and fouling, excessive noise or aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated. You may be required to produce a ground spike and lead on arrival. Should the rules be broken we will require that you remove your dog from the site.


Submission of the booking forms a contract to purchase a holiday and the 'lead name' will be liable for the full amount. Cancellations are not possible and the full balance will be due.

Weather and force majeure

Please note that we are not responsible for the weather. There are no refunds for bad weather, force majeure or for the consequences of such events. You will be liable for payment and we advise you take out holiday insurance to cover this. You cannot bring a tent that requires a "footprint" of more than 5m in both directions.
