to ask for the best campsites by the beach in Cornwall
thickgit · 24/07/2017 21:30
We're planning a two week camping trip to Cornwall with a four and six year old. Ideally I would love sea views and would like to be able to walk down to the beach
Would you kindly share any special sites you have discovered. Oh, and keep your fingers crossed for good weather for me :-)

Stickerrocks locals pronounce it Pen-two-en?! I pronounce it as you do but locals definately prounounce it with a 2 in the middle,well the ladies on reception there did. I third the votes for there it's got its own private section of beach you can pitch literally yards from the beach and it's a lovely site only 5 mins from Mevagissey however it's a very very big commercial site and very expensive. We much prefer smaller, family owned and run sites without club houses or resteraunts and Pentewan has all of those plus a beach burger bar and an indoor swimming pool complex.

Trevedra Farm along from Sennen. Has a cafe and shop but otherwise simple. It's on top of the cliff next to the beach so a downside is it can be windy, upside is you can walk ( step path) down to a lovely beach from the site. Next beach along is sennen which has a good surf school.

Mawgan Porth is lovely. This campsite is basic but very close to the beach. There is loads to do in there and in surrounding areas. marverholidaypark-cornwall.co.uk/camping/.

I stayed at Watergate Bay touring park a few years back, camping with my two DS. We loved it. Watergate Bay is beautiful and it's close to Newquay too. There's so a pool in sure which was a real win with my two.

I''d be surprised if I've been pronouncing it wrong for the best part of 50 years. I even got my copy of the Western Morning News in the Mace a few yards away from the site on Saturday. My Nan was part of the house staff at a certain Gardens during the Lost years & there may be clues in my MN name, let alone how recognisable my RL surname would be to anyone in the area. Maybe my phonetic typing isn't up to scratch. Blame my accent!
