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.

Rude Staff

We arrived at 1pm and had left by 3pm. A large number of pitches are on a slope that was too steep to level up. We were trying to figure this out when we were shouted at for not being within an inch of the marker. We get the fire regulations and were well within safe distances and were just trying to get as level as we could. There are no warnings on the website to say that this is a steeply sloped site and even our ramps made no difference. So, nervously, we went to ask if we would be able to move when a flatter pitch became free. No doubt the staff would state that they were not rude, passive aggressive is the favourite tool of all who are bad at customer service. The site is an amazing spot and the owners are clearly very complacent. We are now at a fully independent site just up the road which is truly lovely and very, very friendly. In 4 yrs of motorhoming we have never met any rude people..... until now.

What a view!

You visit this site for it's views!! Stunning coastline! We stayed for 2 nights, the welcome was warm and I like that you walk around the site and pick your pitch. The walk in Tintagel is not for the faint of heart or for anyone with walking difficulties. There are buses but the times are not great, however you can get a taxi to Tintagel for around £8 and they are dog friendly. We had iffy weather while visiting so will certainly be back to explore the area some more.

Wow - has to be the most beautiful setting I have ever visited!

We stayed here for two nights last week. Upon arrival (late afternoon) we were told to walk around to choose our pitch - and the views blew us away! Many of the pitches have the stupendous sea/cliff views, and most are a generous size - easily accommodating our 8m motorhome. The wardens were friendly and helpful. We arrived on a Sunday to find that there was a fish and chip van offering catering - which we partook of - very tasty! We decided to walk along the coastal path into Boscastle - not for the faint-hearted! After a tasty lunch at the National Trust café we decided to get a taxi back to the site, as the buses only run every 2 hours. It cost us £8 plus a tip, and was welcome after the arduous but beautiful walk there. Next time we will have to walk the other direction into Tintagel. One note - the castle is currently closed for repairs until some time in the summer 2019 - so check the website before you venture off, if that is where you want to go. We will definitely come back here again . . . and again!!

Best views ever

But that’s where it ends if you are in a motorhome and are trying to get around using public transport. We have been coming to this site for many years now and although we still love it, the cost and timetable of local buses have made it almost impossible to get around. Yes you can get a bus from outside the site, but timings are all wrong especially if you just want to go along the coast to Port Isaac. Day rider tickets are now an extortionate £15 each adult. Having said all that the views are amazing, the wardens very friendly and the facilities very clean.

You HAVE to visit this site!

Wow - just returned from a 9 night stay in Cornwall - with 4 nights spent here at the beginning of our holiday. There is absolutely no way I can ever imagine another site is this pretty with such spectacular views! We had a very warm welcome & once we had chosen our pitch (we opted for a grass pitch near the top of the site) the warden kindly lent us some blocks so we could get the back leg steadies down. Everyone was really friendly & busy keeping the site clean & tidy...... lovely facilities! The view was breathtaking. Lucky enough to have wall to wall blue skies it was hard to leave the site to explore the area. Sunsets were absolutely beautiful. The only down side we had was that the farmer decided to fertilise his field right behind us - luckily on the day we were leaving! Can't recommend this site highly enough. I have post-holiday blues!
