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.

    Absolutely everything, a very smart clean site, very friendly staff that made us feel like family from the moment we arrived, lovely bar and staff, thank you Graham. Very clean facilities on site.
    The everso slightly slopping pitches are very spacious and excellently maintained.
    A great location to visit all that Cornwall has to offer.
    A massive thank you to John, Sue, Dennis, Chris, Mick & Doreen, see you all next year.
    Wi-Fi was good and a very reasonable price.

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.
