  • Quiet site with excellent views and good local walks
  • Pub/restaurant, village shop and play park within walking distance
  • A mile and a half from Perranporth beach
This peaceful Perranporth site is in properly prime position: it's set in spectacular Cornish countryside with first-rate views, and has easy access to Newquay and Truro as well as Perranporth. The nearest beach is a mere mile and a half away (walkable in about 30 minutes), and there's a pub/restaurant, garden centre and shop in Goonhavern, half a mile away along a lovely leafy bridleway (there's also a play park and football field up here for kids who need a bit of a run about). Reen Cross Campsite is a family-friendly park, welcoming families and couples only (and dogs, as long as they're well-behaved types and are kept on leads at all times while on site, ta). Pitches are large and well spaced out, on a flat camping field of around three acres, so there's plenty of room for the kids – and grownups – to play. Among the amenities are chemical disposal and facilities for ice pack freezing; new shower, toilet and laundry/washing-up facilities were added in 2017. Barbecues are allowed if raised off the ground.

Liked: The whole ambience of the place is awesome the camp owner would go out of his way to help and make sure your stay was what you wanted out of your holiday the pitchers are large and spaced out so you have the privacy with not being on top of each other. Toilet and showers and laundry room always clean and well stocked with essentials. The only site we have been to and already booked our stay for next year.

Liked: Lovely quiet site with spotlessly clean facilities. Site Manager, Craig, is so helpful and has lots of insight into places/beaches to visit in the area. A fifteen minute (max) walk takes you to the local pub in Goonhavern, that does good food. Perranporth beach is only a 5 minute drive away and you can park at the side of the Texaco garage for the whole day for £6. If you're a National Trust member, take your card for visits to Crantock Beach, Godrevy and St Michael's Mount, to name just a few. We'll definitely be making a return visit.

Liked: Everything.. Craig the site manager who is really helpful came and told us where to visit and how to get there. Perranporth is lovely and lots of places to eat and drink it’s about a 40 minute walk from the site. The nearest pub is the New Inn that does an outstanding Sunday dinner. We loved the site and area that much we stayed another night.

Local attractions

The beaches at Perranporth are less than two miles from Reen Cross Campsite and, along with Newquay, are top foamy spots for north Cornwall surfing and kitesurfing. Drop into the tourist office to get discount vouchers for the local surf schools if you'd like to learn how to board. Perranporth is also home to the gigs and pints of The Watering Hole, the only UK pub to be set right on the sands, and like all the seaside towns around Cornwall has easy access to the South West Coast Path, the spectacular 630-mile trail running from Minehead in Somerset along the Cornwall and Devon coasts down to Poole Harbour in Dorset. From Perranporth, hike to Newquay in one direction or to St Agnes or Portreath in the other; all places have provisions for pitstops for traversing further should you and your feet wish. Highly viewsome teeing off at Perranporth Golf Club is about a mile away; horse riding stables within the same distance, and a play park and football field are close to the site. Within easy driving distance are days out at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm, Newquay's Holywell Bay Fun Park, the Lappa Valley Steam Railway, and DairyLand Farmworld, the award-winning attraction near Newquay.
