With three beaches within reach, plus farm animals and an organic farm café, camping in Cornwall doesn't get much better than Treveague Farm
A family farm perched in divine clifftop countryside, within easy reach of three sandy coves, Treveague Farm has everything a really good seaside campsite needs. So when you consider its extras – a café serving organic food, farm animals, a badger hide and an aviary with bantams, lovebirds and more – it really does notch up a few credits as a superb place to stay.
Spread across three meadows, with glorious sea views in two directions, this is the place to come for a proper coastal stay. When the wind blows it can be an exposed location, so you might want to opt for a space by the hedgerows rather than a front-row view, but the campsite’s open setting really lends itself to families who want space to spread out and let the kids loose. Even with 100 pitches it’s impossible to feel hemmed in here.
While kids gravitate to the farm animals, playground and storytelling sessions in the Secret Garden (great distractions when you want to chill out), make sure you tear them away from all this for a trip to the beach. After all, that’s what this location is really all about. It’s an easy stroll down to Hemmick Beach (though it’s advisable to avoid the short-cut through a field of cattle if you have a dog in tow) and not much further to the clear blue waters of Vault. The calf-grinding walk back up to camp is always a great excuse for a generous scoop of the Cornish ice cream they serve in the campsite shop too.

We offer a wide variety of grass pitches from non-powered through to hook up pitches with water and electric. There is a wooden adventure fort and swings in a safe area for the children. Our heated shower and toilet block is designed with campers in mind including separate disabled facilities. A ladies dressing room with power sockets, free hair dryer, mirrors and a safe baby changing area. A laundry and drying room for boots and coats, along with a washing up area equipped with a freezer (for ice blocks only), fridges, power sockets and a microwave. We are campers ourselves we love the outdoors and our first wish is for you to have a fantastic, relaxing and fun holiday, to share the amazing scenery that makes Cornwall so beautiful.
Amble down the coastal footpaths and explore a selection of beautiful Cornish beaches, from the child safe sands to the secluded and romantic coves. A short stroll away friendly local shops can normally cover the essentials.
During peak season we also try to provide child based entertainment.
Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be on a lead at all times.
We pride ourselves on running a fun and friendly site with only one rule.... Respect us and each other.

Amazing scenery, friendly owners and very welcoming campsite.
We spent a wonderful 6 nights here and have come back home feeling very rested. We had a beautiful pitch with sea views - and the owners kind enough to let us choose a corner pitch as we knew a storm was coming. In high winds the site is pretty exposed - so be aware of this if this worries you. The site is beautiful and amazingly peaceful considering how busy it gets - possibly the quietest nights sleep we've had in a tent aside from the sheets!). Showers and toilets are clean, there is a laundry and a wet room which we used. The real bonus of this site aside from thel location is the "Secret Garden"a welcoming cafe which serves breakfasts, snacks and evening meals and ice creams - given the variable weather it is somewhere to stay dry if needed and has a relaxed vibe. The food is nice and very reasonably priced. The younger staff serving sometimes struggled take money and then remember the drinks as well as a the food ( a simple training session could help install a universal system to help them) but this was always rectified with a smile and an apology. My two younger children loved the selection of board games and my older teenager enjoyed just sitting here and reading. The children's platy area seemed well used and enjoyed by younger children. The highlight was definitely the Sea Shanty Singers on Tuesday - fantastic to watch with a cold cider! Due to the weather we only got to the beach twice - a lovely walk to Gorran Haven through a country path - next time we will explore Hemmick and Vault beaches. This really was a perfect family holiday and we will definitely be back .
We had a great time, the camp site was everything we expected and more, plus very friendly and helpful staff.
The site is in a very lovely part of Cornwall with great dog friendly beaches close by, food in the little camp site restaurant was very good, showers and toilets in good condition and clean. No complaints what so ever, we will be booking again..
Free range kids and camping
We loved this campsite! Spectacular views, kids of all ages running around, just right facilities but with loads of thought put in - hot showers, super clean, indoor washing up area, freezer to refreshed our freezer blocks, baby baths and potties (for those who need them), great playground and a wonderful cafe serving up a very yummy breakfast. The pitches were great sizes and it was definitely a “Cool Camping” site instead of big holiday caravan site. The local beach was just a short-ish walk away but there’s also a NT car park up the hill as well. We have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place. Rowena and Graham have definitely put lots of thought into the site as new owners.
Lovely location and a family friendly site
Lovely headland spot with beaches on both sides to walk to. Gorran Haven is a nice little seaside town (def. recommend the coastal path community cafe above the town for a lunch stop). The campsite was fine with plenty of space to play but it was a bit frustrating to be allocated a pitch when the site was pretty empty and we could have chosen a different one. Toilets/showers/washing up facilities clean but only 2 sinks in the ladies so could get busy in the school holidays. Showers cost extra. The on site shop and cafe was very handy and the owners were helpful and friendly. Cakes and afternoon tea were yummy, less convinced by the main meals (but not having to cook, a high chair and toys to keep the wee one entertained made up for it!). Overall i’d recommend it, we stayed for a week and had plenty to do every day and you can walk to three beautiful beaches right from your tent - that’s hard to beat!
Perfect location with everything you need
We have stayed here numerous times with our three kids, and are always overwhelmed by how wonderful it is here. Clean facilities; showers even have a dressing room which is great for kids! Drying room, if you happen to get wet. Lovely cafe, play area where kids can be free and make friends. Animals, which the kids loved helping to feed. The staff are always helpful and friendly too. There is also loads to do without even having to drive- coastal walks and three different, beautiful beaches; Goran is sandy with a cafe and facilities- great for swimming in the sea; Hemmick is sandy and rocks, no facilities but a great escape as it’s usually very quiet; and Vault beach is a lovely walk along the coast, small pebbly beach with fabulous rocks for rock-pooling. Then a short drive away are the fabulous Lost Gardens of Heligan. We would definitely recommend and we will certainly be back!
Best camping holiday ever!
We absolutely loved this place! We spent 4 nights at Treveague Farm Campsite with our 2 boys (age 7 & 10). The setting is beautiful, with 2 beaches within a 10 min walk (one large with shops / pub etc and the other quiet and secluded). The campsite itself is lovely. The new owners are welcoming, hard working and will go out of their way to ensure campers have a wonderful holiday. The showers / toilets / washing and washing up facilities are very clean and there are plenty of each, ensuring there are no long waits at busy times. There is a wide variety of home cooked food available in the restaurant and is really tasty - we didn't fire up our camping stove once as we wanted to try everything on the menu! The kids loved the animals - bunnies, pigs, goats and of course Indi the campsite Labrador. The site quietened down in the evening which was a nice surprise. I would highly recommend Treveague Farm, we will be back very soon...!
Relaxed, scenic and great facilities
The owners of the campsite were welcoming, very laid back and keen to help with anything. In fact every member of staff was a delight. The facilities of the shop, cafe and bar were great. The play area/fort was fab and our kids spent so much time there, making friends in a safe environment. The coastal walks were stunning and the beaches ideal with lovely clear water....swimming in May!! A great campsite located in a fantastic area with so much nearby...highlights include Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project, Fowey, Mevagissey, Glendurgan Gardens, Trelissuck....I could go on. We will definitely be back.
Views and friendly owners
This is our second time hear and there are new owners this time they are very friendly and very welcoming . there are only a few things thats wasn't the best the top field where we stay was very long they never cut it so it felt left out from the other park which was a shame and the electric went on us 3 times and food took a while to come when we ordered it but to be fair they are new to this . my partner see the old owners when we where hear witch was nice we will be back but hope the grass gets cut for our nxt vist and I think it would ne nice to have sola lights around the park as its very dark it would look really nice at night but this is my thoughts thank you
I have been using this site for years. It is brilliant. It has recently changed ownership and the new owners cannot do enough for you. The views are to due for and whilst it can be windy at times it is on the whole just perfect for families and couples alike.
Relaxed atmosphere and lovely location but.....
The site is in a lovely location but is very exposed. Three or four tents were flattened by the wind during our stay. This is mentioned in the description with the comment "you might want to opt for a space by the hedgerows". We did mention this when we returned the booking confirmation, along with a request to be sited away from the play area, but were allocated a pitch in the middle of the field, near the play area. The atmosphere on the site is nice and relaxed, and access to some good cliff walks and beaches is direct from the campsite. The facilities are basic but fully functional and clean. The on-site restaurant is good but the shop is very limited in range. We would stay again if we had the chance to choose a pitch as it's much more 'camp site' than 'holiday park', unlike others in the area.
