Beautiful site, very well maintained, check in was fast and professional. Excellent dog walking section. At the moment due to health reasons we are unable to walk long distances and as this site is a little bit remote without a car you do need to plan your day as the bus is every 2 hours only. You can order newspapers and fresh bread for each day and the little shop is quite well stocked. A lovely area, fantastic site and I would recommend this one.

Reviewer: Anniewhippet 7 reviews from this member

Visited for 2 nights 2 adults & a dog. Lovely site with great facilities, showers, bathrooms, shop, reception etc and visiting food vans. Varying types of pitch available, we had a fully serviced pitch lots of room and everything on hand, level pebble hard standing, with own grass area and picnic bench. Most pitches hedged and grounds immaculately kept. Could not fault site. Location is stunning but be prepared for it to be slightly further out than some sites, we walk and have bikes but it was steep to cycle, bus at the bottom of lane but needs planning as every 2 hours. Walk on coast path to St Mawes is stunning, takes c. 1. 5 hours. You can get the boat to Falmouth, train to Truro, then come back on the bus all in a day! We would definitely go again and explore other areas, we ran out of time. Area is dog friendly.

In all of the years we have been caravanning we believe this is the best site we have ever stayed on. Its beautiful, clean, well kept, well laid out. The owners and staff are helpful and friendly. The pitches are of a good size and if you require blocks due to any uneveness on the field they will lend you some. The shop is stocked with the basics. The services are all cleaned thoroughly every day and topped up throughout the day. There are three private large shower/toilet/sink rooms for families and disabled visitors. In the blocks there are four showers, approx ten toilets, two private wash rooms and three sinks. There is a beautiful nature field / dog walk which was heavily used by all dog owners, there are benches around to rest whilst taking pooch for a walk. The children's play area is well planned and plenty for children to do. The play field is good with netball, volley ball etc. , both well away from the caravans but close enough and safe for the parents not to worry. Roseland is an unspoilt part of the world and the beaches and coves are excellent. There are plenty of genuine fishing villages to visit and purchase plenty of freshly caught seafood and fish. A fishman, fish & chip van and pizza van visit the site throughout the week which makes dinner choices good. There aren't any bad things to say about this site. Price wise we believe they are on a par with other sites and its excellent value for money. The ground is mowed everytime someone leaves and hallelujah the cuttings are all picked up as well. The only observations I would make are: 1. There may be a delay for showers when busy 2. The hand dryers in both ladies and gents toilets are not very good. If that's all to say in the negative, that's fantastic. We will be back.

Reviewer: JaxG 10 reviews from this member

We booked almost a year ago for 2 weeks camping in our Trailer Tent. I requested at the time we had a sunny south facing pitch and we were lucky to get pitch 33, which had sun from morning to night. I emailed/rang the site a couple of times before arrival and always got a friendly courteous response.

We are a couple in our 40s with two labradors. My husbands daughter and family also went. They were allocated pitch 38 in front of us.


We arrived at 1. 30pm and went to reception where the team confirmed our pitch, given directions to the facilities.


Very large grass slightly sloping pitch, south facing, with hedges to front and sides.


The ladies toilets/shower block had four showers, approximately 8 loos (I didn't count), sinks (some with privacy curtains) and hair dryers. I don't know what the gents are like, but Hubby did say they were exceptionally clean.

They also have an additional block with 3 complete shower suites (shower, loo, sink, hair dryer and shaver point), I noticed one was more suited for a disabled guest. I believe they also have a separate disabled suite and baby bathroom. These shower suites were fantastic, constant hot water, spotlessly clean.

Washing Up/Laundry/Information Rooms

There was approx 6 washing up sinks, with constant hot water and a separate room for Laundry, The washing machines were 4 which included powder/softener.

There is a large room with local information, attraction leaflets. Also a book swap.

Dog Walk:

The dog walk is fabulous, even without a dog! They even have hand sanitizer at the gate.


Small licenced shop selling basics, fresh bread/papers can be ordered.

Pizza Van/Fish and Chip Van:

These come a few times a week, only had the pizza so can't comment on the fish and chips, but the pizza was excellent, monk fish and chorizo.

Out and About:

We walked to Porthcurnick Beach, across the fields as per the sites instructions, if you are going in summer time though watch out for the horse flies and spray yourself with repellent if you are prone to be eaten alive (like I am). It takes about 40 minutes to get to the beach by foot and about 10 minutes in the car. Free parking is available on the side road next to the beach, or its 3. 50 in the car park for all day. Beach is popular for kayakers and it has the Hidden Hut Cafe just behind (which has toilets).

We walked to St Mawes and back along the coast path, this took about 1hr 40 mins and was a ten mile round trip by the time we had walked into town. Its a lovely walk though. You can also get the bus back from St Mawes and it stops at the bottom of the lane near the site, not a regular bus service (every couple of hours), but you can always get an ice cream, go for a drink or just look at the view if you are waiting for the next one.

We walked from Porthcurnick to Towan Beach which was a couple of miles, lovely coastal walk.

We also visited Falmouth, Newquay and Perranporth.

Overall / Top and Bottom:

Would we go again. Yes Yes Yes. Booking this weekend for two weeks again next year, there are so many things we didn't get round to doing that we just have to go back.

Would we recommend. Yes but I would rather it was kept a secret (selfishly).

I did mean to pop in on our last day and say Thank You for our wonderful holiday, but by the time we had packed up it was too late.

I agree with all that has been said about this fantastic site but would like to see a small facilities block in the lower field as it was quite a trek in an emergency to the one block only to find all the cubicles engaged.

We would definitely visit again but would choose a pitch in the upper field if there was a vacancy.

Everything else about the site was superb, clean toilets, tidy pitches and helpful staff.

We arrived on April 22nd for 10 nights and this review is being written from pitch 12 with only 2 nights of this lovely holiday remaining. It is very difficult to add anything original to the many complimentary comments that have already been written about Trethem Mill. The site is impeccable, admittedly the season has only just started and the place is probably only 25% full, but it is being maintained in pristine condition.

The facilities are spotless, the pitches are large, the views from our windows are most pleasant and the only sound that permeates the tranquillity is the birdsong. A pizza van visits on Fridays and a Fish & Chip van on Saturdays but as we didn't use either I cannot make a recommendation. If I had to make one negative comment it relates to some of the pitches not being level and a caravan or motor home would need significant levelling from side to side and front to back. However, this issue relates only to some pitches and most of the site is absolutely fine.

The Roseland Peninsular is stunning, there are lovely coves, beautiful villages, quiet lanes, pleasant river trips and several places of interest to visit. If you like eating out we can thoroughly recommend the Pandora Inn on the opposite side of the River Fal, the location is truly beautiful and the food is simply outstanding. We would also suggest you visit the Nare Hotel, its not cheap but nowhere around here is. We went there for morning coffee and were very impressed with the hotel, the service as well as the coffee.

In summary I know of nothing that could be done by the owners to make Trehtem Mill any better than it is currently. It is a gem and I definitely hope to return.
