With three beaches within reach, plus farm animals and an organic farm café, camping in Cornwall doesn't get much better than Treveague Farm

A family farm perched in divine clifftop countryside, within easy reach of three sandy coves, Treveague Farm has everything a really good seaside campsite needs. So when you consider its extras – a café serving organic food, farm animals, a badger hide and an aviary with bantams, lovebirds and more – it really does notch up a few credits as a superb place to stay.

Spread across three meadows, with glorious sea views in two directions, this is the place to come for a proper coastal stay. When the wind blows it can be an exposed location, so you might want to opt for a space by the hedgerows rather than a front-row view, but the campsite’s open setting really lends itself to families who want space to spread out and let the kids loose. Even with 100 pitches it’s impossible to feel hemmed in here.

While kids gravitate to the farm animals, playground and storytelling sessions in the Secret Garden (great distractions when you want to chill out), make sure you tear them away from all this for a trip to the beach. After all, that’s what this location is really all about. It’s an easy stroll down to Hemmick Beach (though it’s advisable to avoid the short-cut through a field of cattle if you have a dog in tow) and not much further to the clear blue waters of Vault. The calf-grinding walk back up to camp is always a great excuse for a generous scoop of the Cornish ice cream they serve in the campsite shop too.

Nearby

Of the beaches, Hemmick is the closest (10–15 minutes’ walk), but Gorran Haven has more facilities, it also boasts an ancient harbour and an excellent old pub. There’s also the stunning Vault Beach, though this is a longer walk. Inland, The Lost Gardens of Heligan (01726 845100) are worth a visit – home to over 200 varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs, though most notable as an imaginative and intriguing space to explore – a real Cornish jungle if ever there was one. The world famous Eden Project (01726 811911) is also half an hour away by car. For more coastal fun, head further west and along to the Roseland Peninsula. As well as a stomp along the South West Coastal Path, take your snorkelling gear and wetsuit and be sure to schedule some time out in the must-see villages of St Mawes, St Just in Roseland and Porthscatho.

Food & Drink

There’s little need to stray beyond the onsite café and restaurant, open from breakfast to 9pm in peak season. You can also buy meat for the BBQ, or catch your own dinner on a 2-hour mackerel fishing trip (£14 per person, 07973 957550). For a cuppa before your walk, try the Coast Path Café (07512 543735) in Gorran Haven, the Mermaid Beach Café (07971 886782) or Cake Breads which is our local Post Office too. . The old Barley Sheaf pub (01726 843330) is actually just outside the village in Gorran on a country lane. It's a wonderful old inn dating back to 1837.There are lots of eating places available and we are twenty tree minutes away from St.Austell and Charlestown.

The Owner Says

 The campsite is situated within Treveague Farm a 200-acre organic working farm, breeding sheep and cattle. Their produce can be found in our on-site restaurant and shop at 'The Secret Garden'.  We run the Restaurant during peak season offering an amazingly and delicious menu range. We have food allergies (nut, fruit, and gluten) in our family so are really aware of this and if we can provide alternatives we will, please just ask. During the rest of the seasons we are open for yummy breakfasts and evening takeaways, with ample supplies of tea, coffees and cakes!

Treveague Farm truly is traditional camping as it should be, with room to roam and space to relax with extensive sea views. We offer a wide variety of grass pitches from non-powered through to hook up pitches with water and electric. There is a wooden adventure fort and swings in a safe area for the children. Our heated shower and toilet block is designed with campers in mind including separate disabled facilities. A ladies dressing room with power sockets, free hair dryer, mirrors and a safe baby changing area. A laundry and drying room for boots and coats, along with a washing up area equipped with a freezer (for ice blocks only), fridges, power sockets and a microwave. We are campers ourselves we love the outdoors and our first wish is for you to have a fantastic, relaxing and fun holiday, to share the amazing scenery that makes Cornwall so beautiful.

Amble down the coastal footpaths and explore a selection of beautiful Cornish beaches, from the child safe sands to the secluded and romantic coves. A short stroll away friendly local shops can normally cover the essentials.

During peak season we also try to provide child based entertainment.
