Rural retreat looking towards pitch 51

General

  • Flat level grass pitches with easy access from the A30
  • A mile from the surfing beach of Porthtowan
  • Adventure play area, swings, shop and games room

Small and friendly, family run and a mere mile from the first-rate Cornish beach of Porthtowan… this is a peaceful and well located place for Cornwall breaks.

Porthtowan Tourist Park is in a quiet countryside setting, on the edge of Porthtowan village surrounded by fields and country lanes – but is only a couple of miles from the A30 and has easy access to Truro, Portreath, Tehidy Country Park and the South West Coast Path.

This is an award-winning park, with modern facilities maintained to a high standard. There's a games room and adventure play area for leisurely times indoors or out; a tourist information room for plotting your next Cornish stopoff, and a food shop open daily – you'll be chuffed to hear that barbecues are allowed on site too...

Among the well-kept amenities are a launderette, a washing-up area and a disabled-friendly toilet and shower block.

Dogs are welcome on site.

    Prior to our arrival there was a lot of communication from the campsite to ensure we were arriving and following the guidelines they had put into place for Covid-19. On arrival we were given clear instruction on where to pitch our tent. Each pitch had enough space and was clean and tidy. The campsite had put alot of measures in place to make it covid secure and it felt really safe throughout our stay.
    Most importantly the staff we welcoming and kind and really made you feel welcome whilst we were there. We were able to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing trip in an beautiful area. Would definitely go back again.

    We visited this site to visit much of South Cornwall from a central location. Having not been to Cornwall in over 20 years we were unsure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised by the site, as although on the top of the hill it was a plateau site, surrounded by fir trees. Each pitch was of a generous size I would say at least 10m x 10m and all on the flat and in well maintained grounds, such that you could tell the site owners cared about the appearance. The facilities were of a good standard and they set out clear guidance on using these during COVID.
    There was a child’s play park and games room on the site yet was peaceful, and catered to all ages. We would definitely consider stopping there again if we revisit Cornwall.

Local attractions

Stick to the north coast area, venture inland, or head down to Falmouth and the south coast, all within easy driving distance of here.

Within walking distance, the beach of Porthtowan is a popular spot for surfers and families, with plenty of rockpools and caves to explore around its scenic wide stretch of sand. The site is also a short walk from the South West Coast Path – hike the up and down trail to Portreath four or so miles west – and near the Mineral Tramways trail, 14 mostly traffic-free miles from Portreath to Devoran down on the south coast near Falmouth.

Shops, restaurants, bars and river boat trips are all at Truro a few miles away; also take time to see the museum, and, if you're around on Wednesday or Saturday, to mooch around the Truro farmers' market on Lemon Quay.

Gardens? Several are in the area, with the National Trust's Trerice and Glendurgan the closest to the site. Or gold? Take a trip to Cornwall Gold Centre on the Portreath Road, to pan for gold, have a go at pottery, or just look significantly at your significant other over the gold, silver and pearl jewellery for sale.

For family cycling or walking, Tehidy Country Park just outside Portreath is flat and buggy-friendly, and leads out to spectacular views for smashing picnics. More actively, try SK8 Skate Park and The Track, Sithians Lake for watersports and Camel Creek Adventure Park at Wadebridge.

Must see

  • Cornwall Industrial Discovery Centre (5.5 kilometres)
  • Truro Cathedral (13.3 kilometres)
  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (17.1 kilometres)
