General

  • Peaceful park near the north Cornwall coast
  • Spotless facilities and a friendly helpful team
  • Bar and restaurant on site with outside terrace

Ah, what a gorgeous spot is the north Cornwall coast. Surfing at Portreath then hiking on to Porthtowan or Godrevy via the South Coast Path, foraging mussels off the rocks at Trebarwith Strand, tramping around the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Site of St Agnes with its towering beacon… this paragraph was brought to you by the theme 'wistful'.

North Cornwall for you too? Get the best of all its worlds at peaceful and friendly Globe Vale Holiday Park, a Cornish countryside site a few miles from the coast at Portreath and Porthtowan. Cornish coast views – and the St Agnes Beacon – are viewable from your pitch, as you'll see from the superly scenic site pics…

Back from viewing the superly scenic site pics? Trot along to the comfy Globe Vale bar and restaurant with outside terrace to bask on during sunny summer evenings (there's some undercover seating too), handily set right opposite the kids' play area and serving homemade food for eating in or taking away. It's open during peak periods from May to September and has a kids' menu available, as well as a games room with pool table and darts.

The amenities, kept immaculate by the hard-working team, include separate areas for ladies and gents, a disabled shower room and loo, a separate family shower room, undercover washing-up areas, wetsuit washing-off areas, a launderette and a well-stocked shop. A large supermarket is about five minutes' drive away for extra supplies.

Wifi hotspots are across the site too, with wifi passes available at reception.

    As a returning customer there’s so much to like and do from walking, surfing, exploring or simply relaxing on the peaceful site. This visit was in October but no matter what time of year the attention to detail never drops. Friendly helpful staff no matter what the hour, pitches pristine, toilets immaculate & cleaned regularly..
    I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone. 10/10 from us.

    Clubhouse had limited opening (early sept) and dogs weren't allowed inside! Booked for 3 nights but only stayed one

From the manager...

Thank you for sending your comments, we're sorry you were disapointed with our facilities. The bar and restaurant opening hours vary through the season, and as September is off peak, we have reduced our opening evenings from 6 nights per week to 4 nights. ThIs means it was open for 2 of the 3 nights you booked for. It is our policy not to allow pets into the bar/restaurant for the comfort of all guests staying here. We do have covered outside seating where dogs are welcome, we also offer takeaway food. Dogs can be left in the caravan/motorhome (if well behaved) for you to enjoy a meal inside the restaurant as another option.
Our website does have information on the bar/restaurant and pets and we are always happy to answer any queries on the phone.

    Disliked: 

    However our bank holiday break was spoilt by some residents who played loud music until.late at night, found it difficult to finish a sentence wirhout containing offensive language. This must have been distressing for other residents with young children.
    Dispite complaints to management from other campers nothing was done to ask these people from distruoting the entire camping area.

From the manager...

Thank you for sending your comments, we're sorry your visit was spoiled by other guests' behaviour. When complaints were made, we did speak to the persons concerned on 2 occasions and after completing the late night shower block cleaning we found all was quiet - this was at 10.30pm. We were not made aware that there were any more problems after this time and we did speak to some guests the following day to check on this.
We can assure you we do not condone loud/offensive behaviour and following any incidents of this nature those concerned wil not be able to return to the park - we have instigated this already for the group in question from last weekend.

    Immaculate campsite with great facilities. We stayed on a hard pitch with electric hook up, and although the pegs took a bit of hammering to get into the hard ground, it meant we weren’t trapesing mud into the tent when it rained. Close to Perranporth Beach, Tescos and local restaurants. Definitely recommend ‘The Old School Bar and Restaurant’ for food, also dog friendly.

From the manager...

Many thanks for your comments, the hard standing pitches are popular throughout the year - especially with the unpredictable summer weather! Hope to see you again soon

    Size of pitch, staff friendly, took us to our pitch, gave us a map and generally helped us.

    Disliked: 

    Not enough showers when the park was fuller. 2 showers, 3 toilets for 3 fields of campers. Same for tourers.

From the manager...

Thank you for sending us your comments, we do appreciate that the showers/toilets are busy when the park is full. However, the shower block in the Premier B/C fields is for those 2 fields only, plus we do advise customers that if this one is busy, you may use our other main shower block (this is larger) which is a short distance away.

    We have toured since 2000 and this site by fare is the best we have stayed on. From arriving and being personally taken to our pitch. The food and hospitality in the restaurant/bar area was excellent value, the staff were lovely. Last but by no means least the cleanliness in the toilets and showers were the best we have ever experienced they were immaculate. My husband even witnessed the toilets being cleaned at 11pm one evening. Will definitely be returning even if it means a 10 hour drive well worth it

Directions


From the A30, take the exit signposted Redruth, go up the slip road to the roundabout. Take the third exit for Porthtowan/Portreath/North Country. Turn right at the crossroads signposted Radnor and follow the signs for the Globe Vale Holiday Park. After approximately 1/2 mile, turn left opposite The Old Chapel (at sign for Globe Vale). Follow the road to park entrance.

Local attractions

Globe Vale Holiday Park is close to the A30 so you can be out, about and on your way to Cornwall's best in a holiday jiffy.

Truro is about 20 minutes' drive away dependent on traffic and very well worth an afternoon's moseying about to see its cathedral and wander around its many independent shops (the Truro farmers' market is every Wednesday and Saturday on Lemon Quay).

Sticking to pedal power, the Mineral Tramway cycle path can be accessed right outside Globe Vale and runs all the way to Devoran near Falmouth on the south coast from its starting point at Portreath. It's a 14-mile and mostly traffic-free trail and so is a very nifty way to see the Cornish countryside; bikes can be hired near Globe Vale.

For hitting the surf, nearby Portreath and Porthtowan are both top surf spots and are also popular with families of all ages who come to Cornwall to sunbathe/rockpool.

Both beaches have car parking, nearby bars, cafés and shops, and easy access to the South West Coast Path (the 3.7 mile tramp from one to t'other is mighty purty). More top surfing can be had at Newquay, Perranporth, St Ives and Penzance within a short drive.

Natch you'll want a souvenir of your north Cornwall holiday, so mine the opportunities at Cornwall Gold Centre on the Portreath Road, where the family can buy gold, silver and pearl jewellery, pan for gold, try their hands at pottery or teddy bear making, and putter around the miniature golf course.

Must see

  • Cornwall Industrial Discovery Centre (2.9 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (7.3 miles)
  • National Maritime Museum Cornwall (10.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Cornish Mines and Engines (2.9 miles)
  • Godrevy (7.8 miles)
