Why stay here ...

Set on a cliff top, the views from Trewethett Farm Club Site in Tintagel are nothing less than breathtaking. Overlooking the lovely Bossiney Cove with its sandy beach (a difficult descent, not suitable for children under 5 or the unsteady. Tidal waters preclude access to beach at high tide), you can explore the beautiful sea landscapes via the South West Coastal path that runs past the caravan park.

The Trewethett Farm Club Site also gives you easy footpath access to the popular town of Tintagel and the medieval harbour of Boscastle along the spectacular coastal footpaths. Polzeath beach is within 10 miles of the site and with a stretch of wide, flat golden sand is a good option for families. Tintagel is a popular coastal resort with enough shops, bars and restaurants to keep everyone in the family happy, but it is still best known for its dramatic castle, reputedly the birthplace of none other than King Arthur. The area offers a range of ancient countryside villages where you can taste the traditional flavours of ale and hearty Cornish food. For those who want a family getaway in magnificent coastal settings, this caravan site will not disappoint.

Loved it!

A great site to get away from it all. Just the right amount of facilities without overdoing it. Walking to Boscastle and Tintagel are both achievable without too much effort and it is a good way to earn your Cornish tea. This means you can enjoy the area without using your car / camper van / motor home. The small shop also helps if this is what you want to do. We stayed for 8 nights and went for a drive on just one day - to visit Newquay and Port Isaac (we wanted to see the ‘film set’ for the Fisherman’s Friends film). Really enjoyed the fact you can take your dogs into the King Arthur’s Castle Hotel. Fish and chips from the visiting van were lovely, such a great idea. Perfect to eat with the view across the bay.

A lovely site in a fabulous location, however .....

A lovely site with spacious pitches in a fabulous location with most of the pitches have amazing sea views. Two paths from the site (one at each end) lead directly onto the coast path offering beautiful walks to Tintagel and Boscastle (and beyond). The location is perfect. And now to the 'however'. There are 146 pitches on this site with a main toilet block and a couple of portacabins offering additional facilities. There are a total of eight female showers (one of the showers in the portacabin was out of order) so this meant some queuing at busy times. Also there were only four dishwashing sinks for the whole site, again with queues at busy times. I understand we visited over the Bank Holiday weekend, but all the facilities appeared a little grubby. This is one of the most expensive sites we've visited this year and had the most disappointing facilities. The other 'however' is the arrival time. The Club handbook clearly states 12.00 arrival time, but on Saturday people started arriving just after 9.00am and were being allowed on site to pitch. We were told that they can't turn them away (as that would lead to complaints), they can't be made to wait until 12.00 (as that would block the access road) so they have to be let on site. If you are like us and abide by the arrival time for site, this is very frustrating. Interestingly there are two letters in this month's Club magazine about with this same complaint of early arrivals. Even more galling is that when we left yesterday (just after 11.00am) we met another caravan hurtling down the access road (which is single track in places) and we had to reverse to allow the caravan (who was arriving early) to rush onto the site.

stunning views - just amazing

we came to this site for one night in order to visit Tintagel Castle, the non-electric pritches are literally at the top of the site, the views WOW - did I mention the views.... stunning. Shame that the more basic of the two toilet/shower blocks are closest to the non-electric/tent field as these are the campers most likely to need the washing up facilities. also no hairdryer in this block where there is in the main block. but appart from that the site was clean, friendly and well located. We managed to walk to Tintagel Castle with our family (including 6yr old) although it took longer than estimated as it's very steep and rugged on the coastal path, but still an amazing walk and so beautiful. This was the most expensive site we stayed on during our two week tour of Devon and Cornwall and didn't feel it quite warranted the high price tag but loved it all the same.

Perfect

Our first time to this site. The location is superb in that it is an hours walk from either Tintagel to the West or Boscastle to the East. Both walks are along a stunning coastline. If you get one of the from row pitches on either of the three tiers the views from your caravan are simply stunning. We arrived at 1200 and were lucky to get straight into pitch 69 which had a front row view. 12 nights was enough and we were very lucky with the weather although one or two blowy nights. Awnings need to be up to the job as the winds can be very wild. Shop is well stocked and has cream teas! The wash block is very clean and nice and modern. There are numerous dog waste bins and the waste/water points are not far from any pitch. Wifi wasn't great - But this is a BT issue not CAMHC - It is a very rural spot. Its a very long way from us in Yorkshire - But we will definitely be back one day.

Beautiful sunsets

Lovely views. Wardens always busy keeping everything ship shape. Sunsets were gorgeous when it wasn't too overcast. Beautiful part of the country. Hope to visit again.
