We say

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, even with 80 pitches it’s impossible to feel hemmed in here. However, it can be an exposed location, so you might want to opt for a space by the hedgerows rather than a front-row view.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, because 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 bulls if you have a dog in tow),and the calf-grinding walk back up is always a great excuse for a generous scoop of the Cornish ice cream they serve back at camp.
