A quiet, family-run, Cornwall campsite situated in the hamlet of Tresowes Hill, between the beaches of Praa Sands and Porthleven
The perfectly flat grass pitches at family-run Tremorvu belie the fact the landscape all around is actually sloping. Follow a footpath North East from the campsite entrance and you’re wandering up Tregonning Hill, a natural viewing platform for watching Atlantic sunsets. Head in the opposite direction, meanwhile, and you’re tumbling down to Cornwall’s coast where multiple beaches await. Either route is a good choice; in all directions the unspoiled countryside is magnificent.

Yet despite its flat, green setting within walking distance of the coast, Tremorvu has more to boast than just location. This is a place that has honed its camping credentials over the years and not by installing endless playgrounds, parks and facilities. Tremorvu is a site that knows the simple essentials and does them well. Beyond that there’s little more you could want.

There are 40 pitches across the eight-acre site. Half have electricity and the other half are spread around the grass, where families can pitch their cavenous tents and children play ball games. Traditional Cornish hedges provide some shelter from the wind and also help attract wildlife, while an ancient stone barn with a corrugated roof houses a farm shop during peak season. Top quality meat from the Helston village butcher is ideal for your BBQ – the campsite have bricks you can borrow to prop aluminum disposables above the grass.

Not everyone has to bring a tent. Lazy-bones and luxury seekers can pluck for one of Tremorvu’s pre-pitched options. Bell tents are fully furnished with a double mattress, bedside tables and tealight chandeliers and accompanied by a separate dining shelter where you can cook and eat nearby. There are also larger ‘Euro tents’, family sized structures with a slight 70s look about them. They can be comfortably stood up in, even if they’re not the best looker on the site – a prize which instead goes to the single shepherd’s hut with it’s own private garden and far reaching views right down to the sea.

Porthleven is the beach of choice for surfers. A reef to the right hand side of the harbour is considered one of the best breaks in the UK and attracts top surfers from across the country. Adjacent Praa Sands is equally popular, particularly with families who can also explore the shops and restaurants that overlook the beach. Both are just a mile and half from the campsite.
