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.

It doesn't get better than this!

Well wherever we stay next could not possibly live up to this amazing site. Yes it is all about the views but also the staff were fantastic and the site was clean and tidy. You have to choose your pitch before you are allowed in due to the layout, so expect a little wait if someone in front of you needs more time to decide, but you can see why this is necessary. There are temporary /showers up the top end of the field, these were less luxurious and shared facilities meant that I walked in with a bloke as he had forgotten to put up his COVID band on the hook, thank goodness he was washing his hands and not using the urinal! Some gel around the service points would have been good. Nice to have the mobile fish and chips on Sunday night, just get there early as you have a long wait. It was just pure joy to be here, just wish it was open all year it would be amazing to be here in the winter watching the waves roll in.

Happy Place!

An absolutely brilliant arrival procedure with a very amusing and efficient warden guiding the units into the waiting lanes and providing each unit with a Queue Number. Afterwards one member of each unit was advised when to join the registration queue. I found this all very well organised and fair, as it meant folk couldn't jump the queue to grab a pitch. Another ingenious idea was reception providing sections of drainpipe (yes!) to place over your chosen pitch pole. It's always the simple things hahaa! Our grass with EHU pitch required levelling ramps, and was perfect for us, with uninterrupted views, could not have been better. We chose to use our onboard facilities so can't comment on toilet/shower blocks. The service point nearby was spotless and bins emptied regularly. We only walked a section of the Boscastle Coastal Path, which can be accessed direct from the site, as the terrain is very challenging but oh such stunning views. The Rocky Valley circular walk, from and to the site, is well worth taking and very picturesque. Busses will stop right outside the campsite upon request. We had three glorious, hot and sunny days soaking up the views and sunsets followed by very fierce winds and rain, but then being bumped around by the 45mph wind gusts is to be expected whilst camping on a cliff top. If any comments at all it would be that a 2nd Motorhome Service Point would be welcome. During our stay the majority of the units were MH which meant a queue upon exit. I'm so pleased we managed to book this site after being confined in lockdown, and felt very safe in our own bubble. We would definitely love to have another visit at some point.

Jewel in the Crown of Club Sites

If Carlsberg did club sites this would be it. We were lucky enough to get a front row pitch with outstanding views. Standard club facilities, kept spotlessly clean by the club wardens and no queues despite half being closed due to COVID. Although I think a second facilities block should be opened instead of the temporary ones currently in place. I feel fully serviced pitches would further enhance the site especially during the current crisis. Excellent coastal walks to Boscastle and Tintagel and Port Isaac is only a short drive. My only concern is that it's so special will I be able to book in next time I want too.

Picking a pitch !!

Great site, helpful and friendly wardens, only gripe I had was if you do go and walk around the site to pick your pitch be considerate to other people trying to get onto the site and don’t leave your caravan blocking other people in that have been directed to park behind you in the waiting area !!

Fabulous!

We spent 3 nights on a non electric pitch right on the edge of the cliff! Amazing position, amazing views! We walked along the coastal path to Boscastle one day and to Tintagel to visit the castle another day. The path in both directions is quite challenging, not for the faint hearted, but well worth it! We found the Covid precautions to be good at this site and especially liked the fact that the portacabin facilities were one family unit in each, so we were able to go in and shower at the same time, which suited us. In the main block the hooks were divided into showers and toilets, which was a good idea, as you weren't waiting to use the toilet because people were n the shower. The band system worked well on the whole while we were there, although there are some people that are obviously incapable of understanding simple instructions! Highly recommend this site!
