A Cornwall campsite with crafts and activities, a range of camping and glamping options and Newquay's best beaches within walking distance

Coastal Valley isn’t just a campsite. Imaginative owner Tanya also bills the place as a ‘crafts site’, with an online calendar full of willow weaving, slate painting and fabric printing on offer. A blackboard propped up outside the reception-cum-farm shop is used to spell out any activities that day, swirled in neat, chalky handwriting.

What’s clear, though, is that the creativity of the owners knows no bounds. The philosophy behind their craftworks seems to extent to the campsite beyond – a veritable collage of the camping world. Around its borders young and mature trees combine, linked by colourful pampas grasses and the dusty yellow of gorse bushes, and a narrow stream gurgles along the southern edge. It all frames an eclectic interior where there’s something for every camper.

For ‘regular’ folk, follow the hard driveway past reception and an oval loop provides access to the 25 grass pitches. For maximum privacy pitch your tent closest to the stream or stay up near the driveway for access to electricity. Coastal Valley operates a traffic-free policy, so once you’ve pitched your tent or parked up the caravan, campers are requested to return the car to the main parking area. The result only accentuates the tranquillity of the setting. Children play safely, you can always sleep soundly and the stream and birds can all be heard.

Glampers, meanwhile, have the more imaginative options. A pair of bell tents are furnished with low beds, bedside furnishings, lanterns, bunting and a welcome hamper of local produce, while a safari tent, nudged against the trees in a far corner of the site, is fully kitted out for up to six people. There’s also a perfectly restored 1956 Airstream trailer: Its aluminium exterior gleams, while the retro, en-suite interior comes complete with under floor heating and fully equipped kitchen area. Finally, a ‘BBQ lodge’ sleeps a further four people – beds are fitted along four sides of the hexagonal structure all surrounding an inbuilt barbeque – and there is a wooden pod perfect for couples.

From the campsite it’s around a mile to surfer-central Watergate Bay, walking through the sheep dotted fields and following the gentle course of the stream. And the same distance to Porth Beach – flanked by rocky promontories making it an ideal location for safe family bathing. Popular Towan Beach, too, is within easy reach, with all three backed by cafés and waterfront bars. If you don’t stay down at the waterfront for a pint of the local bitter then be sure to wander up the slope behind the campsite for a view across the beach instead. The Atlantic sunsets are stunning.
