General

  • Clean, tidy, friendly and small site in southwest Cornwall
  • Easy drive to the Eden Project and National Maritime Museum Cornwall
  • Toilets, showers and undercover washing-up point on site

Old-school camping near the Cornish coast, with warm welcome, splendid setting and spankingly clean and modern amenities all await at Valley View Touring Park, a family-friendly and peaceful place in a walkers' paradise and wildlife haven.

Set in a central location near the old mining coast with St Agnes, Chapel Porth and the Great Flat Lode Trail, the park is well set for Cornwall holidays of active, attraction, city or coast. It's close to Truro for rainy days or shopping; has easy access to the boats, shops and maritime museum of Falmouth by Park & Ride or Park & Float; is near horse riding and fishing lakes, soft play and golfing, and is only a couple of miles from its nearest beach, the wide open expanse of Porthtowan. Perranporth and Newquay are also close by.

Valley View has pitches in a spacious and level field, up to date and clean toilets and showers, an undercover washing-up area, a communal fridge/freezer for ice packs, and a launderette.

    Nice site in the middle of Cornwall friendly owner, lovely views and very big pitches had a great time, even though we had strong gusty winds and heavy rain.
    Because of COVID the toilets and showers were closed so can’t comment on these good base for travelling around Cornwall.

    Disliked: 

    Has we had to use our own toilets because of COVID the Elsan was quite a way to walk but if the toilets and showers were open then this wouldn’t have been an issue

    The campsite is positioned perfectly for exploring Cornwall. Beaches, towns, villages all within a 30 minutes or less drive. Claire the owner is very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The toilet/shower block was closed due to covid but looked fine. It's in my opinion a back to basic campsite for adults to relax and children to play together.

    Fantastic customer service and support where needed. We was called the day before to ensure we had every bit of information we needed To get to the site and as reminded that the site had no facilities at this time due to COVID-19. We was also contacted during the week to check up on our welfare as our paths did not cross being out all day. The pitches had been spread out wide apart so you had loads of room and space from other campers. Great location, basic, peaceful and just what we needed to a place to stay for the week in out camper van converted van.

From the manager...

Hello.... your kind and factual appraisal is very much appreciated. Your feedback is very constructive and we were very pleased to note you found the pitches and spacing agreeable on the campsite. Glad you had a lovely holiday. See you again hopefully. Take care.

    Friendly staff and a beautiful and quiet rural setting. The location was not far from the A30 and very central to get around.

    We were allowed a bbq and small fire, which made the experience very authentic. We will definitely return and recommend to others. There was a fridge freezer for all to share and a free washing machine and tumble dryer.

    Great campsite simple and tidy. The pitches are a decent size and you are definitely not on top of each other, electric hookups are available if wanted. Bathroom block very clean and the showers are fantastic.

    Really friendly people and would recommend if you want a nice quiet break.

    no problems at all really but a larger fridge freezer wouldn't harm although there was enough room for everything everybody this weekend

From the manager...

Thank you for your very positive appraisal and feedback... totally agree with the fridge freezer point. Pleased you enjoyed your stay and holiday in Cornwall, as you know, campers come first at Valley View. Kind regards Admin.

Directions

Local attractions

You'll need a few weeks at least around Cornwall's coast, countryside and family attractions, whether you go north, south or see how far to the west you can hike along the South West Coast Path (Porthtowan to Portreath is a good start if you don't mind a few steep climbs along the way).

The Valley View Touring Park team knows the area well and has a pile of recommended days out for all tastes to try: for beaches, there's Porthtowan two miles away as well as Chapel Porth, Perranporth, Fistral, Newquay and Crantock; for horse riding, stables are in Redruth, Trenance and Newquay, and for teeing off, drive along to the Radnor Golf & Leisure course and driving range at Redruth.

Kidwise, soft play centres for toddlers are at Penryn and Truro, and all ages should squeal at the friendly critters and huge indoor play centre of Dairyland Farm World in Newquay. Also recommended for family days are Newquay Zoo and the town's pools and flumes at WaterWorld, Flambards at Helston and the famed Eden Project just outside St Austell.

For peaceful and grownup pursuits, fishing lakes are near Newquay and bass and flatfish can be landed off the rocks at the end of Perranporth beach.

Must see

  • Cornwall Industrial Discovery Centre (4.6 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (6.0 miles)
  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (9.1 miles)

National Trust
