  • Rural site in a quiet grassland setting, a 10-minute drive to Padstow
  • Under 10 minutes' drive from the beaches of Harlyn and Trevone
  • On-site bar, live music at the weekend and street food in high season
Craving a quiet Cornish countryside retreat? Sort a trip to Tregella Place Camping and peacefulness plus lovely farmland views will be yours for the taking. This park is a rural spot but it’s also close enough to the necessities you need for a satisfying stay: a chicken farm is a short stroll away to pick up fresh eggs, and a supermarket and a pub serving food are less than five minutes’ drive away. For foodies, this area is a top choice as Padstow (10 minutes’ drive) is a gastronomic hotspot with eateries helmed by chef Rick Stein, along with other highly rated restaurants, coffee shops and bars. If you really want to earn your dinner, get yourselves there on foot: the walk takes you through the cornfields and starts at the top of the lane. But there’s no real need to leave the site if you’re after evening entertainment; there’s a bar (in a converted bus, no less) serving Cornish beers and ciders, plus a packed schedule of live music at the weekend. In high summer, feed the family from the pop-up street kitchen and eat together at the communal picnic area. Thoroughly pristine facilities include a bricks-and-mortar shower block with family-size showers complete with changing areas, electric points for charging devices and hairdryers, and a washing-up area. You can wander directly on to the South West Coast Path from the park, and for adventures on two wheels, the Camel Trail cycle path is nearby as well.

Liked: Absolutely nice and lovley owners Family. They cook for you ever evening (very tasty) and morning and they are so nice. They is a new Bar as Well in a old Bus. Cool! New facilities, good campesite at all. Great experience!!!

Disliked: The water in the showers could run longer. It switches off after 4 seconds and you have to press again. Not bad, but a little annoying

Non-electric grass pitch

Liked: Absolutely loved Tregella Place. Arriving nervously - first time camping after more years than I care to think, just me and two dogs. Met by Noah and Lucy - so friendly and welcoming, perfect hosts, couldn't have been more helpful. The site itself was lovely - surrounded by farmland, so peaceful, even a pheasant came to say hi before dashing across the field. At the same time, on my Thursday eve visit, there was the street kitchen and bar - both very welcome indeed, for an evening burger and I couldn't resist a breakfast muffin. And the toilets and showers - wow. Perfectly clean, everything you'd need. Dogs very welcome. And they loved it too. Honestly, couldn't recommend Tregella Place more highly and would love to come back. Forgive quality of photos - snatched a couple, usually tough with two doggos in hand!

Disliked: Nothing whatsoever.

From the manager: Hello, I have spoken to you on the phone this morning to find out what happened. We do normally do a walk round of the field to control noise levels. This unfortunately didn’t happen due to my 10 year old daughter having a sudden onset of a violent sickness bug. I didn’t have any texts or phone calls from you despite sending a message to ask you to address any problems on my number. We also live on site and no one came to the door to say. Noise problems are best dealt with on the day and I was unaware there was an issue until 5 days later when you left this review. This does make dealing with problems like this extremely difficult.

Would again.

Liked: Liked the vibe. Was a bit busy, but that didn't take anything away from the visit. Good bar. Food truck was closed due to the owners being away. Good facilities. Slept very well. Great for a sun set.

Disliked: Lights in the bathroom were on a motion timer, which gave me a laugh at 11pm.

Local attractions

There are many pursuits to ponder in the Padstow area, so fingers crossed you have plenty of time on your hands during a trip here. The beaches should be your first place to explore – after getting a glimpse at the closest sandy spots, like Harlyn and Trevone (under 10 minutes’ drive), set off for the scenic Bedruthan Steps (15 minutes). Here for the waves? Hire boards in Padstow (10 minutes) and head for Harlyn (10 minutes) or drive to Newquay (half an hour) and check out the UK’s biggest surf scene. This town also has masses to keep kids occupied, including beaches, a zoo and aquarium. If you need more nipper-friendly places to visit, Camel Creek Adventure Park (10 minutes) is close by and has theme park rides to keep pint-sized thrill-seekers engaged. When travelling child-free, put Prideaux Place (five minutes) on the itinerary – this Elizabethan manor is easy on the eye and also has stunning views out across Padstow’s historic harbour. After having a good nose around the house and grounds, keep the grown-up shenanigans going with a visit to the Trevibban Mill Vineyard (10 minutes), which organises tours and tastings.
