General

  • Spacious and quiet site in Cornwall with two fishing lakes
  • A 10-minute drive from Newquay and three National Trust surf beaches
  • Tackle shop on site; five minutes' drive from pubs and shops

Fisherfolk, form a queue: this fab site on Cornwall's north coast has a pair of fishing lakes as well as sea fishing trips nearby.

Gwinear Camping and Fishing is a spacious site about five minutes' drive from the villages of Cubert and Crantock. It's accessed by a track road a short drive from the A3075 connecting visitors to Newquay and top attractions all across Cornwall.

The grassy field is spacious and level, and visitors heap praise on the spotless modern washrooms with roomy and hot showers. If you're into the joys of fishing, you'll be overjoyed over here: Gwinear has a pair of well-stocked fishing lakes open all year. New large pegs and paths all the way around make the lakes great for easy access and long days, and a tackle shop is on site if you've forgotten to bring a vital bit of kit. (There's a pleasure lake and specimen lake on site and both lakes have different rules regarding equipment: please ask for details of these on arrival.)

Cubert and Crantock are handily close with pubs and shops, and supermarkets for more extensive supplies and sustenance are in Newquay.

    Really nice site, on arrival we were greeted by a very helpful and friendly gentleman. We had a good choice in where to pitch. The site and showers and toilets were so clean which meant we felt safe and relaxed. The site was very peaceful. We have been camping 4 times this year and this has by far been the best site.
    Such a good location we spent alot of time in Newquay exploring the beaches. We didn't want to come home and definitely want to come back.

Local attractions

You can reach a trio of blooming fine beaches within a 10-minute drive from your base at Gwinear Camping and Fishing: Holywell Bay, Crantock and Poly Joke are National Trust-maintained beaches with a mix of soft sands, dunes, rockpools and top surf, with far fewer crowds than nearby hotspots like Fistral.

For walks both lapped by the waves and high on the cliffs, it's 10 minutes' drive to link up with the mighty 630-mile South West Coast Path. A good half-day section from Newquay takes you to Bedruthan Steps (half an hour by car) for clifftop vistas, steep steps down to a secluded beach (check tide times), rock climbing and a welcome café.

Inland, the smart fishing town of Padstow (40 minutes) marks the start of the Camel Trail, a 17-mile track taking walkers, cyclists and horse riders through some of Cornwall's finest countryside. Padstow's a popular stop for fish too, eaten battered on the beach, served up smart in restaurants or bought to grill up back at the base. If you want to land your own, there are various sea fishing options on offer in Newquay; if you prefer your fish in a tank, the Blue Reef Aquarium is a real gem.

For family days out, it's half an hour to Camel Creek Adventure Park, a heady mix of crocodiles, meerkats, rides, activities and a 5D cinema. The big-name rainforest biospheres of The Eden Project and the elegant Lost Gardens of Heligan are 40 minutes away.
