General

  • Dog-friendly farm site two miles from the Cornwall coast
  • Several beaches and coastal paths within walking distance of the site
  • Restaurants, café and a pub within 10 minutes’ walk of site

Paddleboarding, coasteering, or going for a light paddle alongside the golden sand… these sorts of things aren’t hard to come by when you stay at Tresco Farm, a small farm site two miles from the Cornwall coast. Being five minutes’ drive away from the nearest sandy beach and 10 minutes’ drive away from many more coves, you’ll be primed to launch out towards watersports hotspots, sheltered bays and sand dunes.

Walk if you wish or perhaps leave the car behind entirely… many of the beaches are within walking distance of the site (Harlyn Bay is a 45-minute walk), as is the local village. Plus, there are plenty of coastal routes on hand in case you’re keen to set off further away on foot. Just grab your walking boots and put your faith in a trail.

On the edge of Saint Merryn (a rather splendid seaside village), the farm is also well-situated for those of you who often have pub grub on the brain. There are a couple of restaurants, a café and a pub within 10 minutes’ walk of site, and more amenities on the outskirts of the village. Handily for those families among you, the closest pub has decking and a children’s play area too.

As for facilities on site, there is a toilet and shower block which has two female toilets with a shower and two male toilets with a shower. Plus, if your dog is an essential companion on your trip, you won’t have to leave them behind here – as they’re welcome on site.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Minimum spacing of 3 metres between pitches.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

    Excellent family site, run by lovely people. Has a toilet block with flushing toilets, showers and sinks, and washing up shed with electricity for charging your phone. We had a bit of engine trouble whilst staying here and the family could not have helped us more. We are so grateful and will definitely be back.

    The location is perfect to explore the nearby towns and beaches, Padstow and some of the nicest Cornish beaches are only a very short drive.
    Large quiet campsite with plenty of space.
    Basic camping facilities (a few toilets and a couple of showers) that were kept clean. Everything we needed for a couple nights.

    The campsite had all the basics you would need such as showers, toilets, plug sockets, sink, fridge and freezer. The showers were really warm too.

    Disliked: 

    The fridge was always full and not sure if the food belonged to people or was free to take so may need clearing out. Sometimes the bathrooms ran out of toilet paper however they were always stocked when I went back to the bathroom

From the manager...

Hi Sophie, thanks for review! Appreciate the feedback as well, next year we are planning on getting full sized fridge and freezer and monitoring what is left in there better.

Excellent site, cheap and clean and quiet and in a great location.24/08/2023

  • Bell tent (deluxe, three person)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Extremely good value for money.
    Paid £25 a night to stay in a bell tent with electrical hookup and had access to a microwave, kettle, toaster and mini fridge inside the tent.
    The toilet and shower building had hot water and was kept quite clean.

    The location was perfect- less than 10 minutes from local town Padstow, the local village was a minute away, and beaches 10-15 minutes away depending on which one you went to.

    All quiet at night time, no disturbances and generally a perfect campsite.
    Also there was 4g and 5g phone service so able to use phones at campsite which I’ve not been able to at other locations I’ve stayed at.
    Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to go Cornwall and doesn’t want to spend ridiculous money on accommodation.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike.

Hi Kenny, thanks for the great review! Really appreciate that, hope to have you back one day!

Thanks for the review, really appreciate it! We did have to keep the grass longer this year than we’d have liked to due to the amount of rain, if we had cut it as short as normal, the field would have been torn up a lot easier.

This campsite should be shut down. It is unsafe.22/08/2023

  • Liked: 

    Location - excellent base to explore Padstow, Seven Bays and Cornwall. Quiet pop-up camping site.

    Disliked: 

    Fridge and freezer dirty from putrid food and liquid. Filthy workmen toilets and shower porta-cabin - not cleaned once during our 5 night stay (should have been 7 nights) apart from when I mopped the shower floor. I also got robbed by fellow campers. My advice - avoid this camp site. It’s a death trap.

From the manager...

Hi Matthew, this review is quite frankly ridiculous. We spoke on numerous occasions during your stay out none of these issues were outlined? In fact, you spoke to myself and another member of my family whilst we were cleaning the toilets. On top of it all, you were reported to us by multiple guests for harassment which is why you left early! I’d recommend any campsite owner to stay for away from him.

Local attractions

With so much choice in the way of beaches and coastal hikes, you’ll want to weigh up your options. To go to Constantine Bay (five minutes’ drive), a sandy destination with excellent swimming and rockpooling? Or Harlyn Bay (10 minutes), another sandy spot that has kayaking and paddleboard hire, coasteering activities and a surf school for those of you looking to catch your first wave?

There’s Treyarnon Bay (10 minutes) to brush up on your surf skills some more and Mother Ivey's Bay (10 minutes) if you’re searching for a more sheltered sandy bay. As for other ways to take in the gorgeous coastline, head to Padstow (10 minutes) to board a boat from the fishing port or Trevose Headland (10 minutes) to go birdwatching along the National Trust's clifftops.

The following both have camel in the name, but they’re very fine activities with a different spin: Camel Creek Adventure Park (10 minutes) is packed with family-friendly rides and animals that the kids can meet up close, while The Camel Trail (10 minutes) is an 18-mile old railway trail that will take you on a cycle from Padstow, past the estuary and into Wadebridge.

Must see

  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (3.2 miles)
  • Rock Beach (3.3 miles)
  • Newquay Zoo (8.3 miles)
