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.

Our return visit

We have now visited the site three times and have thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The site has been well managed and the staff have been friendly and helpful. It does seem to be a large site to have only one shower and toilet block but this was eased in the summer months when there were portable shower and toilets in the upper field. Excellent views and adjacent to the South West Coast path. We shall hope to visit again. My "good for families" rating only reflects that I did not bring a family and therefore find it difficult to assess.

Fabulous location, shame about the facilities

The sites location is perfect, no question, we love it, and this was our fourth visit. But its a site of two halves. The grass pitches at the far end have a fantastic view, but its a four minute walk to the shower block, (the porta cabin showers were closed, though no way would we have used them). The stand pipes at that end have very low pressure, plus the wifi is next to useless. So great views. The shower block is inadequate not big enough, especially when the site is full, and it was. It is also showing its age, the sealant around the showers needed replacing two years ago, it still does. There is mould on the ceilings, and the drains in the showers are brown and grim looking. Its obvious the staff do there best, but it needs a refurb as a minimum it really needs a an enlarged shower block to serve the whole site, along the lines of the big shower blocks at the Centenary Site. I know the club are unable to get planning permission to put a shower block on the grass part of the site, so a decent temporary toilet block is needed, in addition to an enlarged shower block, you can get them, them have them at Hyde Park every year. Either that or treat it as two sites, one a CL and adjust the site fees to suit, I know that won't happen, but something needs to change.

Wish we could have stayed longer

We booked a one-night stopover on the way back from Penzance without much consideration apart from it being half way home. After a night's stay we would have loved to have lingered much longer! Had it not been for the need to get home, and forecast thunderstorms, we would have certainly added extra nights. The location is wonderful, and even though the site was quite full there was a choice of pitches with wonderful sea views (even though the exposed pitches got rather windy during storm Ali). The staff were very helpful lending us the bus timetable - although the buses are a little infrequent and we easily walked to Boscastle and back before the bus made it. We had no complaints at all about the facilities - we were close to the main block, which was spotless and had everything we wanted. We have a rule about not going back to sites a second time, but that rule may just get broken in this case. PS I only scored a 4 on Good for Families because it's a mandatory field, although we didn't bring a family and wanted a quiet site without children, so didn't know what score to give. I imagine in the school holidays it would be great for children, which is one reason for us to avoid at that time of year!

IF CARLSBERG DID CARAVAN SITES !!

The most spectacular views and sunsets of any site we have visited. Had been trying to book this site for a while now but was always full on our available dates. Finally got here 1st week of September 2018 and was just as I had hoped for. Got pitch 62 on the front row right on the cliff top looking across to bossiney cove. fantastic walks on the coast path (but is steep and many uneven steps in places) but should be fine for most people. Tintagel and Boscastle are both very close and you can easily walk to either of them. The main shower block was very clean and tidy with good size showers. If you like excellent coastal scenery and fresh air then this site is for you. Some things I have previously read say that access to the site is not good. True it is further away from the A30 along narrower roads than other sites that I have been to in Cornwall but personally I didn't find it a problem towing a 21foot twin axle caravan in and out and when we left for home on Sunday evening to miss the traffic it was dark and raining and slightly foggy as well. Obviously different families have varying criteria for their holidays depending on their own individual needs, but personally I loved this site and will definitely be back the sooner the better.

Another great visit

This is the second time we have stayed at Trwethet. We have been fortunate that we have had a pitch in the front row both times. Needless to say as a coastal site situated on the top of high cliffs care should be taken if you pitch an awning. We had no problems but then we pitched our awning from the outset with storm guys. The facilities are as we would expect spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water, no queuing problems even though the site was full for the fortnight we were there. The wardens are both friendly and helpful making sure that we had a great time. We have explored the local area there is a lot to do and see. Walking the cliffs is so easy we walked to Boscastle and Tintagel both worth a visit. There are plenty of good restaurants and pubs in the area so eating out is easy, you do need to drive. There are good surf beaches nearby but make sure you have local tide tables with you, they are useable over the low water periods only. We will visit the site again it is a very special place. Best Cornish Pasties we have eaten bought from the shop, make sure you order yours early.
