General

  • Cornish estate around a 17th-century mansion
  • Heated pool, library, writing room and regular events
  • Indoor game area and woodland playground

Verily, you’ll very much like Trewan Hall Camping Site between Padstow and Newquay in mid-Cornwall. It’s been developed on an old Cornish estate around the 17th-century mansion of Trewan Hall, and has been carefully maintained with traditional building techniques to blend in with its 36-acre woodland and garden surroundings. And speaking of gardens, they’re lush – have a look at the site pics...

The Hill family have added all sorts of little touches to make this a top family site, like entertainment varying from local rock/brass bands to shows in the Long Barn in the summer holidays, all professional and free of charge, and the 25-metre covered heated pool, also available in high season.

Available at all times are a large field for ball games in front of the Hall, barns for table tennis, a barn with pool table set aside for teenagers and adults, and a library and writing room. A fully-stocked shop is open nearly 14 hours a day in high season, shorter hours in low season, selling groceries, camping equipment, souvenirs, toys and games.

There are two different areas to pick a pitch from: one aimed at families near the play park, shop and barns, and the other more secluded in a bigger field – in both, you can pitch up where you like to have plenty of room, with the owners managing bookings so that there are always more pitches than people and what’s on offer never feels overcrowded.

For the essentials, there’s a shower and toilet block with a family bathroom, disabled/family shower room and wetsuit shower; here’s where you’ll also find the baby changing facilities, washing-up area and hairdryer. (Drying facilities are also available elsewhere on site.)

Trewan Hall also has a woodland playground.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Group bookings of 4 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

All: access to the swimming pool is not included in the rate and is charged £0.70 per person per session.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 26/05 and 02/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Maximum length caravan/motorhome is 8m (26'3") including drawbar.

The pool is an outdoor pool covered by a large plastic dome, making it an indoor pool when needed.

The dome can only be taken down when there's been a consistent period of good weather. Conversely, it can only be put up when a long period of poor weather is forecast. The site therefore cannot guarantee if the pool will be covered or uncovered during your stay.

It was "ok". 03/09/2017

  • Liked: 

    Kids loved the pool and it was undercover when we stayed which was fortunate as the weather was pretty dreadful. Having a lifeguard on site was great. We didn't mind paying 70p per child. BUT it should have been a cost per day not for each time they wanted to get in the pool.

    Disliked: 

    Could have done with selling alcohol on site. No shops/pub/restaurant nearby. Although there were food vans that visited some days (evening only) it would have been better if there was one every day or better still on site catering. The play area was a little junior for our children (11, 11 & 9). Very strong smell of silage in the main camping field towards the bottom of the field where it was quieter.

Local attractions

Trewan Hall is near the centre of Cornwall with easy access to the north coast beaches and within easy driving distance of most of Cornwall’s attractions. For a short stroll, head into the old market town of St Columb Major a mile away, where there’s a 15th-century church, surf store, antique shop and fish and chip shops galore.

Sand fans will be in heaven in this part of Cornwall: the closest beach to Trewan Hall is Mawgan Porth four miles away and has surf shops and a surf school; the beach is dog friendly all year round. Gorgeous Watergate Bay is ten minutes’ drive away, or head to the famous Seven Bays clustered around the village of St Merryn, which is a few miles from Padstow and within 15–20 minutes’ drive of the campsite.

Within 10 miles of Trewan Hall are three famous Cornwall spots to spend days at and not want to come home: Newquay, where you should wriggle into your wetsuit for some of the best surfing in the country (surf schools are all over town and nearby for the uninitiated); Padstow for the Camel Trail and Camel Estuary Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; and Wadebridge for more Camel Trailing, buzzing around the Porteath Bee Centre and sending the kids flying at the Crealy Great Adventure Park. Zipwires, biodomes and more can be had at the Eden Project around 15 miles from Trewan Hall.

Natch there’s sea fishing, river fishing and all sorts of slippery catches to be had all around north and south Cornwall including crabbing in the harbour at Padstow, rock fishing at Godrevy Point and beach fishing for plaice from Watergate Bay. There’s coarse fishing among the kingfishers at Mawgan Porth Pools Lake and fishing for salmon and trout on the River Camel for anglers who prefer to keep things fresher.

Not want to get your feet wet? You’ll also be close to hand from Trewan Hall to many top Cornwall attractions like Lanhydrock House and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the tors and walks of Bodmin Moor and, to the south west, tin mining country and Helston’s Poldark Mine.

Must see

  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (3.1 miles)
  • Newquay Zoo (6.1 miles)
  • Blue Reef Aquarium (6.5 miles)
