With three beaches within reach, camping in Cornwall doesn't get much better than Treveague Farm

Family-friendly pastures in divine countryside, within easy reach of three sandy coves, Treveague Farm has everything a really good seaside campsite needs. So it's no surprise that campers who pitch up here for the first time in the height of summer and stand around taking in the big sea views are inevitably back the next year too. Once you find a place like Treveague you're sure to remember it.

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. The pitches average a comfortable 95 square meters (yes, someone went out and measured them), so, even with 100 pitches in total, it’s impossible to feel hemmed in.

While kids gravitate to the fort-shaped play area and make new friends, adults enjoy fresh coffee from the café. But the beaches are the main attraction. The village of Gorran Haven is a 10 minute walk away and has a good dog-friendly beach for campers with pooch in tow (there are a few village shops for provisions, plus fish and chips and a Post Office). It’s an even easier stroll, though, down to Hemmick Beach 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.



Electric hook up points across the campsite. Bathroom and shower facilities (showers run on a token system 50p for 4 minutes). Disabled shower/toilet room. Caravan waste disposal. Laundry facilities. Drying room. Microwave, fridge and freezer. Play area (fort). Café-restaurant (vegetarian and allergy friendly; free WiFi around café). Campsite amenity and gift shop (including fudge and ice cream). Outdoor seating area. Firepits for hire and wood provided. Raised BBQs.

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, caravans, motorhomes, dogs – yes. 


Picturesque Cornish villages nearby include Gorran Haven and Mevagissy, and other points of interest include Dodmans Point and Caerhays Castle amongst others. A public footpath runs past the campsite and the South West Coastal Path is only minutes away. Of the beaches, Hemmick is the closest (10–15 minutes’ walk), but Gorran Haven has more facilities, it also boasts an ancient harbour. There’s also the stunning Vault Beach, though this is a longer walk. Inland, The Lost Gardens of Heligan (01726 845100) are worth a visit – home to over 200 varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs, though most notable as an imaginative and intriguing space to explore – a real Cornish jungle if ever there was one. The world famous Eden Project (01726 811911) is also half an hour away by car. For more coastal fun, head further west and along to the Roseland Peninsula. As well as a stomp along the South West Coastal Path, take your snorkelling gear and wetsuit and be sure to schedule some time out in the must-see villages of St Mawes, St Just in Roseland and Porthscatho.

Food & Drink

There’s little need to stray beyond the onsite café and restaurant, open from breakfast to 9pm in peak season. You can also buy meat for the BBQ, or catch your own dinner on a 2-hour mackerel fishing trip (£14 per person, 07973 957550). For a cuppa before your walk, try the Coast Path Café (07512 543735) in Gorran Haven, the Mermaid Beach Café (07971 886782) or Cake Breads which is our local Post Office too. The old Barley Sheaf pub (01726 843330) is actually just outside the village in Gorran on a country lane. It's a wonderful old inn dating back to 1837.

Getting There

If you use a SatNav, the postcode for the Lost Gardens of Heligan (PL26 6EN ) will get you some of the way. From St Austell, though, take the B3273 towards Mevagissey (avoid going into Mevagissey itself as you'll encounter some very narrow lanes). Past Pentewan, continue to the top of the hill and turn right (you should see a sign post for 'The Lost Gardens of Heligan'). Once past Heligan, go through Gorran High Lanes and then bear next right, following the brown tourist signs for 'Sea View International Campsite' and 'Treveague Farm' on the right hand side. This road looks narrow but there are lots of large passing places. At the top of the hill, at the T junction, turn left, then take the next right. Follow this lane until the road veers hard right and Treveague Farm Campsite is on the left.

Bus 526 from St Austell station stops a 500m walk from the site.

Spacious campsite with wonderful views

We stayed here for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful place. The camp site has pitches which are well spaced out so everyone has a nice large area to settle, ours faced overlooking the sea. We did have one very windy night where we thought the tent may take off but you can move pitch and go by the hedge which would provide more shelter. The facilitys were extremely spick and span with heated shower and toilet blocks (and radio to listen too) there's a drying room for wet clothes and plugs to recharge stuff aswell as fridges and freezers which was great as we had no hook up. The breakfast in The cafe looked fab and we found the owners to be very helpful. Theres alot to do in this area and in the surroundings so we did 4 coastal walks with the dogs, gardens of helligan, a national trust house, mevagissey & fowey towns. Could have easily stayed another week, only thing to beware of is that there nowhere to eat open after 9pm apart from the Indian in mevagissey (which was also shutting) we ran into a 4 other people in same scenario starving at 8.30pm as they had also just arrived no where not even a chip shop or spar shop was open at that time in either gorran or meva!

Great views, lovely people, perfect holiday

This is a lovely family run campsite that was recommended to us, from arrival the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful with information. The views are absolutely amazing to wake up to in the morning and look out over the sea. The site is in a great location for getting to lots of beaches and days out, we went to the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, both of which were great days out for the family, but recommend taking a little packed lunch. Gorran haven beach is a nice little walk from the site and has a couple of shops close by, Charlestown is a gorgeous harbour with lovely seafood restaurants and a small pebble beach, Mevagissey is a gorgeous fishing town which lots going on in the harbour and tasty fish and chips, and porthluney beach is beautiful. The campsite put on a circus skills evening for everyone on our last night which all of the children enjoyed and most parents too, it was a great extra and lots of fun! There is a shop on site, as well as a cafe, 2 fridges a freezer for ice blocks, toilets, showers (both of which we didn’t have to queue at all) and a drying room, a great park and drinking water in lots of spots. Overall the campsite is lovely and we would definitely go back there.

Great for kids

Fantastic site, great location and lots of fun for the children. The play fort was a real hit and the activities like circus skills and film night were good too. The area has lots of great beaches and is not too busy. Will definitely be returning!

Beautiful views

The family that run treveague farm camping were very helpful and friendly. The cafe is handy for those times that you can’t be bothered to cook your own. The breakfast menu could do with having some add on’s such as pancakes, porridge with berries. The toilets and showers were clean and well looked after. I nailed the 4 minute shower! The views were AMAZING! The little walk into Gorran Haven was lovely. The walk down to Hemmick beach was great, walking back was 😳 needs to be done though as the scenery is outstanding, took my breath away. It’s very windy up there but beautiful.

Fantastic family camping experience

We had a fantastic week at Treveague Farm, the campsite is lovely and the facilities great. The shop/cafe/bar is lovely and great if you don't feel like cooking. The play area is good for kids of all ages and we felt confident in letting our 6 year old move around the campsite safely on her own. Some of the pitches are quite sloped so we ended up sleeping on a hill but got used to it. The hedges offer good shelter but are too high to allow much of a sea view. The owners and staff are very friendly and gave helpful advice when we were trying to decide what to do about approaching bad weather. Highly recommended.

Lovely campsite

Lovely campsite in an amazing location. Perfect for local beaches and exploring the Pennisula. Great cafe on site, friendly owners, and very dog friendly. Facilities good with a fridge and freezer which was perfect for us camping. A fab campsite, would highly recommend 😁

Wonderful spot - would recommend.

Beautiful place, prime spot for sunset and nice quiet beach only 10/15 mins away. Clean facilities and friendly staff and nice and Quiet in the evening :) Can’t recommend enough will most definitely be back next summer.

Wonderful time and great spot

Friendly staff and great spot for camping. Lovely place for sunset and nice quiet beach 10/15mins away. Would recommend !

Great place.

As a first time camper, (and I’m nearly 50!), I wasn’t sure what to expect oif treveague farm campsite, After our 5 hr drive from London, pulling into the sun drenched farm was a lovely surprise. Met by happy smiling faces we checked in and had our tent up in minutes. I had forgot a few supplies so headed back to the well stocked shop for tea and milk, also bought a delicious cake. We then headed to the nearby beach. After a beautiful sunset dinner was had. The food in the cafe was really good, fresh and delicious, the fish and chip best I’ve ever had!!! Breakfast really good too. The facilities were clean, water hot. There were lots of people around but it didn’t feel crowded and lots of happy children in the play area. As a new camper I had my doubts but treveague farm has made my first experience very pleasurable and I’m looking forward to my next trip. I would highly recommend this campsite.

Near perfect campsite.

We stayed 5 nights in August, 2 with our young nephews. Definitely recommend this campsite, good range of pitches, plenty of space, friendly and helpful staff. The set up of the cafe and shop is great, well priced, not intrusive but there if you need it. We ate the street food on Friday and the kids went to the Monday movie night. Also heard good things about the sea shanty singers. But you can easily avoid all that and just pitch up and enjoy the views. Toilet and shower block was clean and, although quite busy, we never had to wait for a shower or cubicle. Don't forget to go to the animal hide and feed the pig and goats. It's a ten minute walk down to Gorran Haven beach, the chippy there is wonderful. It's a twenty minute walk back up the hill. Loved it.

Relaxed site, wonderful scenery!

Our first camping experience, and what an experience it was! Cannot fault Treveague Farm at all! Beautiful location & stunning scenery, the owners & staff were friendly & helpful, toilets & showers always clean, and play park was fab for kids! We will definitely return!

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

amazing site

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.
