General

  • Traditional camping with first-rate facilities
  • Alfresco café serving locally sourced organic food
  • Wildlife hide and pond to spy butterflies, badgers, foxes and falcons

Still trying to persuade a reluctant lesser half to come camping? If ditching them really isn’t an option, we suggest you pack them into the car and take them to Treveague Farm near Cornwall’s St Austell.

The tagline at Treveague is ‘traditional camping as it should be’, but you can reassure your beloved that this will not mean shivering under a trickling cold tap, being in the middle of nowhere or chowing down on half-frozen chips: the facilities here are first-rate, sea views are every which way and three beaches are within walking distance.

Fancy some first-rate food too? Sneak along to the alfresco Secret Garden café, open in peak weeks in July and August and serving up tasty organic and locally sourced treats a tad beyond the traditional camping menu: slow-cooked shoulder of lamb in red wine for the grownups and not a chicken nugget in sight for the juniors, for example...

Treveague has a heated and swish shower and loo block (showers are token-operated) with separate disabled facilities, an additional ladies’ dressing room with power sockets, mirrors and baby changing area, a drying room for boots and coats and a campers’ kitchen with microwave, fridge and power sockets. (Freeze your ice packs for free at reception.)

Also on site is a wildlife hide where curious Georges can spy butterflies and dragonflies by day and badgers and foxes by night, and a natural spring fed pond to attract buzzards, peregrine falcons and hummingbird hawk moths. Kids can put in a few hours at the wooden play fort too – we can practically hear the parental wine corks popping already…

Please note

Showers on site are token operated: each token gives guests 4 minutes of hot water and 2 tokens cost £1.

    We did not actually go on our booked date - it was to be a first try of a new trailer tent and we basically "bottled" due to the weather
    However if our treatment from the management is anything to go by we cannot wait to get there - the gentleman on the telephone was both understanding and sympathetic of our cowardice and simply booked us in for 5th August - no arguments no drama just top class old fashioned customer service

    Fabulous site. All staff so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We accidentally set up on the wrong pitch but they couldn't have been nicer about it. Fab views and a great location. A brilliant place for my first stay in the campervan.

    Views were lovely
    Location - a little remote for us but a useful footpath to Gorran Haven ideal for those with dogs and a beautiful beach.
    Showers were warm.
    Site was tidy and relatively clean.
    Close to coastal path.

    Disliked: 

    Would have been nice to see the site staff around a little more to be able to ask about anything.
    Toilet / shower block I think could do with more regular cleaning.

    Lovely peaceful campsite with fantastic views of the sea. Plenty of space. High hedges. We had good mobile and tv signal , we managed to watch wembledon.Dog friendly. Plenty of walks straight from the site. The coast path might be difficult if you have small children, quite steep in places. We had lovely fish n chips at Gorran. Took about 30 mins to walk down. We met one friendly member of staff the next day and was very informative. We had fantastic weather and would definitely recommend staying at this site. We absolutely loved our weekend here pity we had to go home. We are coming back to stay again.

    Disliked: 

    Going home. The toilets and showers are a bit outdated but work fine. Shame you have to pay for the showers. The cafe was not open but opens last week in July and Aug. We did go to Heligan for breakfast which they serve till 11am. Fantastic breakfast for £6 You can use their restaurant without having to view the gardens.

Directions


From St Austell take the B3273 towards Mevagissey. Go past Pentewan; at the top of the hill turn right towards the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Once you have gone past the Lost Gardens of Heligan you will see brown tourist signs for Sea View International campsite: follow their signs and our brown tourist signs will soon appear.

Local attractions

Treveague is on the spectacular Roseland Peninsula with beautiful beaches, child-safe bathing and hidden coves all around, as well as a good handful of historical houses, green gardens and quick access to the Eden Project, about ten miles away.

Mevagissey, St Mawes, and St Just are all nearby for pit and pasty stops; we’d recommend picking up some Cornish cider too for dinner later at the Secret Garden.

Go in one direction from Treveague Farm to reach the family-friendly beach at Gorran Haven and the fish and chip shop, restaurant and pub at the village, and in the other for the rockpools of more secluded Hemmick beach and the long peaceful stretch and good fishing of the beach at Vault (the far end of Vault is naturist). As it’s the south coast, waters here are generally calm and not used for surfing, but sailing, fishing boat hire and kayaking is available from Mevagissey.

The area is blooming with good gardens: the National Trust’s Lanhydrock, Trerice and Trelissick, the very lovely oddness of the Lost Gardens of Heligan four miles from Treveague Farm and the biomes of the Eden Project for the kids to trek through a tropical rainforest.

Further along the coastline, make time for another National Trust site, the tidal island of St Michael’s Mount just off the coast at Mount's Bay and one of 43 of the county’s islands that can be walked to from the mainland at low tide (impress people with that factoid back home while you show them the pics). Boats carry passengers from Marazion a mile and a half away when the water is higher.

Other accessible options from Treveague Farm include the yachts and trawlers of Fowey harbour, rides at Flambards and the Crealy Great Adventure Park, shopping in St Austell and Truro, and following the Clay Trail by foot, bike or horse: try the five-mile trek along the trail from the Eden Project to Wheal Martyn.

Must see

  • Lost Gardens of Heligan (3.7 miles)
  • Eden Project (9.6 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (11.2 miles)

National Trust

  • St Anthony Head (10.4 miles)
  • Trelissick Garden (10.4 miles)
