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.

    Staff friendly, quiet place

    Disliked: 

    No bar or restraunt open. Toilets and showers needed a good clean and updating. Decided to have a bath one night but when the water ran brown decided to go back to caravan and have a shower. Pitches needed levelling we didn’t even bother trying to put the awning up it was so uneven.

From the manager...

As explained on our website and elsewhere, our bar and restaurant close at the end of our summer season. But we always tell people there are 3 pubs within a 12 minute walk of our entrance which all serve good food!!
Regarding our pitches, we are a park in a natural countryside setting ….and yes, not all of the 200 pitches are levelled like a tennis court.
It’s worth noting that the pitch these folk were on was occupied for 9 weeks without break from June and everyone before them put up an awning!
We always take note of our reviews but it’s not uncommon for one review to say our shower blocks are spotless…and another from the same week to say completely the opposite! We can only say we strive to maintain our toilet blocks to a high standard.
Brown tap water (harmless mineral tilth) occasionally happens in the water supply, particularly if the water authority is working on the system, and it’s not limited to our park. Running a tap for a minute clears it.

    Toilets are clean enough but not too a high standard and definitely need updating. Would have been nice to have a bit more going on in the bar, think is one area for improvement as the bar is more like a conservatory.

  • Liked: 

    We stayed here for 6 nights with our 5 year old daughter. The pitch was lovely and out of the way. The staff were amazing with our daughter. Staff were very polite, helpful and made us feel very welcome. The facilities on site were always very clean to a high standard. The food and drink on site at the restaurant/cafe was amazing and very yummy. Close to Newquay so wasn't to far to go and plenty of other places to visit not to far either. Overall just a lovely campsite to stay at definitely will be going back.

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.
