One word for this site and that is Fantastic, I am definitely (already booked) going back next year. The owners John and Sandy are two of the nicest, friendliest, helpful people you can meet; nothing is too much trouble for them.
The site toilets/showers/washing rooms are kept spotless, and also smell lovely, which I canít say for some of the big sites I have been too.
They loaned my daughters fishing nets and buckets and spades for rock pooling at the beach with no charge so I didnít have to purchase any, after telling us the best places to go.
All in all a fantastic family friendly place. The play area, as well as the site is very well maintained and we had quite a lot of rain but never got bogged down or flooded.
The garage is an excellent little place for the daily pint and paper, although not fully stocked, it is only a service station after all, and the Starbucks is good for the teenagers to get away from us parents whilst being close enough to be kept an eye on.
The pub round the corner is ok with good food reasonably priced and the post office in blackwater is like stepping back in time. Itís not too far away from the ďmajorĒ places, Truro, Newquay etc. Whilst being far enough away that it is peaceful.
The road never was a problem for us it is busy although the laughter and chatter from the children far outweigh the occasional tractor or car that drove past.
All in all a nice gem to find and I for one will continue to keep going back.
If you want a site with a good location then this is ideal, its really well located to major road networks without being too close to noisy roads.
The site is well signposted and very easy to find, its also very clean and tidy and when we arrived the people were very welcoming and left us to our own devices for the whole week but when we did need anything they were very happy to help.
The pitch we were allocated was very good and the ground is all even and just about all fresh grass but there are some hard standing pitches as well with small hedges and fences between pitches so you know your barrier and have privacy but you can still speak to your neighbour.
The toilets and shower (which were free) areas were very clean, easy to use and were only a few minutes walk from where we were pitched along with the Washing Up Area. There were only two showers on site and it was fairly quiet when we were there but I can imagine it might get busy at peak times.
The site also has a games room with a pool table and a few games machines with local information such as bus time tables hanging up. The Washer and Dryer were also very useful as was the iron and ironing board.
The site has a kids playground with swings and a slide which looks fairly new and is well looked after.
As stated the location is very good, there is a petrol station and small shop only a few minutes walk away selling newspapers and the general groceries.
Within a a few minutes walk there is also a pub which serves food but we didn't use although it looked welcoming. There are also bus stops which take you into Newquay, Perranporth and Truro only a few minutes away.
Within a few minutes drive into the village of Blackwater is a local shop and Post Office where the people were very friendly and Truro itself is only a few minutes drive away also where all the big supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsburys are.
All in all we would highly recommend this site to anyone with either form of unit you have and would use it again.
We have just returned after spending a relaxing week at Trevarth. The site was excellent, clean and tidy, staff were very nice.
The site was in an ideal position to visit places of interest and beaches. Carlyon Bay was a favourite of ours but is in the process of being developed so we are not sure what impact that will have when completed (this has been going on since we last visited two years ago and seems there is still no end in sight).
As we have two dogs we had to choose which beaches we could visit. Kennack Sands was very nice but the dog friendly part of the beach ment a short walk around the headland but was worth it when we got there. There are a couple of nice cafes there which were reasonably priced.
We will definitely be back to Tevarth in the near future.
We arrived at Trevarth on their season's opening in a sunny spell between a succession of snow, sleet and hail showers and were met by owners Sandy and John.
The site, was extremely tidy and clean (although Sandy apologised for the fallen twigs that they couldn't keep up with clearing due to the high winds) and we were sited on the field nearest the road, which although only a B road running through Blackwood before joining the A3047 to Redruth does handle more than it's fair share of traffic emitting quite a bit of road noise, but not noticeable either in the van or the awning, even so this could well be a thing of the past as John and Sandy are planting more hedging along the road which will do a lot to kill this noise.
Site facilities were very good, the showers and toilets impeccably clean no matter what time of day we used them. There is a children's park with swings, slide and see-saw plus a recreation room with 2 pool tables, a football table and a couple of electronic games to keep the teens busy. The laundry room houses a washing machine and tumble drier along with iron and board in case you get withdrawal symptoms. The site also has a pay-phone although mobile reception seemed very good there, both phone and broadband.
There is no shop but there are two garages side by side about 2 or 3 minutes walk away both with shops or a very short drive will take you to Blackwater Post Office and store, this is an old fashioned store where you get served! worth a visit for that alone! If you want to do a bigger and cheaper shop then there is a big Sainsburys about 4 miles away into Truro. We did a lot of our shopping when we were coming back off our daily excursions, even so we did use the local services as well.
Five to ten minutes walk away is the Chiverton Arms pub and restaurant, we visited on our last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal there, they are very accommodating, and allowed us to change their set menu - oh. And they make their own chips - really worth getting fat for! Cost for us was about £11 per person for two courses although you could pay more if you wished, depending on what you ordered.
Trevarth Holiday Park is just off the A30 which makes it just about central for anywhere in Cornwall whether you meandered up the road through St Agnes and Perranporth to Newquay or down towards the artists hideaway of St Ives, we did this and also took the A30 down to Lands End returning back through Penzance to Helston and then returning the next day to Helston the next day to visit Flambards.
There are many things in this area to appease everyone, whether it be shopping centres, Cornwall seems to have quite a few 'original' factory outlets, caravan centres, theatres (including The Minack open-air Theatre at Porthcurno) or theme parks. One thing to bear in mind if you are on a budget: many of the attractions expect you to pay for parking the car and the attraction as well, and it can all mount up very quickly. (Mind you walking around the factory outlets and caravan centres wasn't cheap either - well not for us - although we did manage not to buy a new caravan)
Would we go back? Yes, we like Cornwall and Trevarth Holiday Park is very central and very well kept, so the next time we feel like another bit of Cornish chill time, Sandy and John will be getting another call from us
Me and my family went here this weekend it was a lovely site clean well cared for and lovely friendly owner a must if you are in the area !
The site was easy to find lots of facilities for children a playground games room and as site is small children could play safely.
Our youngest played with owner grandson and had great fun
Locally there was a garage just on the main road in walking distance and next door much to our group of teenagers delight a starbucks coffee house great for a hang out and a hotchoc for less than £2.50
Not a far car ride from newquey or st anns and a lovely cove 10 minutes drive away with a amazing beach and a large tide pool for younger kids to play in safely
