General

  • Award-winning park in a countryside setting near Newquay
  • Bar/bistro on site and three pubs within walking distance
  • Less than seven miles from Newquay airport

What could be cleverer than flying to Cornwall for your holiday and thus avoiding motorway madness and hours of 'Are we there yet?' from the kids? Travelling light and posting your kit ahead of you, that's what.

Tremendous Trethiggey Touring Park is less than seven miles from the airport at Newquay and frequently has campers to stay who do this very thing – what good sense. But it's also jolly sensible to bring wheels here too, as once you arrive there are lots of jolly good things on site to get you into holiday mood.

The Stable bar and bistro will see you sorted June, July, August and the May bank holidays for big breakfasts, evening meals, takeaways and lashings of excellent Cornish ale – you'll forget about the motorway halfway down pint one – or you could hire fishing kit as soon as you arrive then cast off at the small but well-stocked fishing lake to land carp, bream or roach.

Wifi is available across the whole park for a reasonable fee, and to keep the kids busy, the Trethiggey team has added an adventure playground and two games rooms with pool tables, TV and games machines.

Trethiggey's also a carefully considered wildlife site if you want to have a species spotting wander: there are over 4,000 shrubs and trees on its countryside setting, badgers frequently visit, foxes live in the nearby fields and you should also see kingfishers, jays, buzzards and rabbits. Nature signs are dotted around the park detailing all the critters that live and visit there.

Amenities at Trethiggey are kept spotless by the friendly team and include two shower and toilet blocks, heated in winter and each with disabled facilities, free hot water and washing-up sinks.

Trethiggey welcomes well-behaved dogs.

    Lovely peaceful site, although there was some road it did not spoil our visit. We were spoiled by having a service pitch which was almost opposite the toilet block. Excellent showers, always clean. Although there was a restaurant on site we did not use it as we were usually out during opening times.
    Nice play area for children, plenty of wildlife on site.
    Would recommend a visit if in the Newquay area.

    this was a good friendly run camp, the customer service was good and willing to solve any issues and in the most part very relaxing and good value for money and the small bar/cafe was pleasant and the food was very good.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches were not flat which presented a problem for the trailer tent and required some manoeuvring to get the unit level and as i am disabled camper it was nice to see disabled facilities but they were also marked as 'family' so getting to use them was a problem as it seemed everyone was and i had to wait mast of the time for someone to finish, i tried to use the stranded facilities but the cubicles were to small,
    Also the camp rules say that there should be no excessive noise after 10 pm but this was not enforced and some groups were shouting and making noise to the early hours on several occasions

    Lovely site with a great dog walk. Shop is very well stocked and the bar and bar food is really nice. There is a children's playground and the Wifi connection is not too bad, better than some sites we have stayed on although avoid the pitches by the trees. Shower and toilet blocks were clean although a few spidery webs. Short walk to a couple of nice pub restaurants and also a lovely quaint train station where you can get a train to Newquay or as we did, to Par and onto Plymouth for a day out. The staff here are great and nothing is too much trouble, they are very smiley and friendly every day.

    Disliked: 

    Pitches a bit close together.

    The staff who ran the camp were very friendly. It is was in an ideal location to travel around Cornwall and Devon. We also liked that BBQ' were allowed and you could help yourself to borrowing bricks to place them on. There were lots of leaflets with things to do in the local area, some with discounted entrance fee vouchers inside which was a bonus! Also very easy to walk to the local pub and restaurant for evening meals if we didn't want to BBQ. Very enjoyable stay and would stay again!

    Disliked: 

    Although there wasn't anything functionally wrong with the toilet and shower block, I feel they could have done with being gone round with a duster every now and then. Being outside you expect some bugs and spiders in there however some of the cob webs looked like they'd been there a while.

    This place is 5 star for me. Extremely helpful staff felt like you had known these guy's years feeling. Site was clean and tidy grounds kept cut and hedges kept in check . So long as your not having an outdoor concert they leave you to it . Food was ok but portions were on the shy side . But I definitely want to return next year

Local attractions

Food, glorious food: Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant is nearby at Watergate Bay, and it's a mere 16 miles or so from Newquay to Padstow and the four fish restaurants of Rick Stein.

Or have surf, glorious surf, other watery sports and the building of many sandcastles with the kids at the glorious beaches of Newquay, with plenty of pubs, restaurants and clubs around to relax/party in once you've dried off.

On Newquay's outskirts, put cheesy grins on the kids' faces with a whisk around award-winning and all-weather DairyLand Farm World, one of several kid-friendly days out around the area within an accessible drive: see also Flambards theme park at Helston, the Eden Project near St Austell, Crealy Great Advenure Park at Wadebridge and an unusual but gripping day out at Padstow's National Lobster Hatchery.

Elsewhere around Cornwall, pick your passion and set off: historians can explore the old tin mines of World Heritage Site St Agnes or Cornwall's many historic and National Trust houses.

Marine enthusiasts should have a look at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium and the National Maritime Museum at Falmouth, and arty types can make their way to the galleries and artistic atmosphere of lovely St Ives.
