About Trelispen Caravan & Camping Park
Everyone! Tents, campervans, motorhomes, caravans, families, couples, dogs (on a lead at all times)...
The closest beaches are ½-mile away in the village of Gorran Haven. It’s a 2-minute drive or a short but hilly walk on country lanes to the village which also has a couple of shops selling buckets and spades, café and general store. The sheltered sand and shingle of Vault beach, just west of the village, is recommended by Talwyn and Mike along with sandy Hemmick beach which is a little further – but still only 2 miles away. Vault and Hemmick are separated by Dodmans Point – a headland with the remains of an Iron Age Fort and great walks. The fishing village of Mevagissey is 3 miles north-east along the coast with pubs, shops and a little museum (01726 843568). It’s 5 miles and a drive of about 10 minutes to The Lost Gardens of Heligan (01726 845100) and The Eden Project (01726 811911) can be reached in about 30 minutes by car. The market town of St Austell is 10 miles away. Here, you’ll find the St Austell Brewery Visitor Centre (01726 66022) and Wheal Martyn Clay Works Museum (01726 850362).
Food & Drink
The Barley Sheaf pub (01726 843330) is ½ mile up the road in Gorran Churchtown and serves food at lunch and dinner. In the other direction down the hill in Gorran Haven, you'll find the shop-cum-café, Cakebreads Bakery (01726 842048), serving fry-ups, Cornish pasties and sandwiches. There’s also takeaway fish and chips from The Haven (01726 843555) and eat-in dining at The Llawnroc Hotel’s Gwineas Bistro and bar (01726 843461). Talwyn and Mike recommend the Cornish cream teas from Melinsey Mill Tearooms, 10 miles away in Veryan, and say it’s worth the 30-minute drive to Porthcurnick Beach to eat at The Hidden Hut. A simple café with outdoor seating only, it serves lunch and the occasional book-well-in-advance feast night and known as one of the best places to eat by the sea.

From St Austell take the Pentewan Road (B3273) heading towards Mevagissey and the Lost Garden of Heligan. When you reach a crossroads with Mevagissey signposted left and Gorran Haven signposted right, start following signs to Gorran Haven. Continue along this road, all the way through Gorran Churchtown. After passing the pub, church and a sharp left corner, take the next road right, signposted for Gorran Haven. Continue for 200 metres before turning left off the main road on to a single-track road. Trelispen is about 50 metres down the road on the left.
The nearest railway station is at St Austell (0345 700 0125) 10 miles away. The number 471 bus takes a scenic route to Gorran Haven and Gorran Churchtown a few times a day – but there’s no service on Sundays.
