We first camped at Treveague in summer 2011, after lengthy searches on the Internet and a shortlist of our preferences:

Near to a small Cornish harbour and beach, laid back and relaxed, no loud clubhouse or games room, small shop with basic supplies, a place to escape our hectic lives and give the children somewhere to explore the outdoors and make friends.

Treveague ticks all the boxes! It's our retreat and as soon as we turn onto the Mevagissey road from St Austell we get the 'Ahhh' feeling.

Excellent facilities, helpful and friendly owners and staff. If you want to sit in a pub every night and let your kids go to a kids club, then this isn't the place for you.

If you're happy to mingle in the secret garden (you can either buy bottled drinks from the site or take your own), your kids can play on the wooden fort or get captivated by the weekly storyteller in the tipi. I often spend a day on site, relaxing.

Practicalities - 50p each for a 4 minute shower token, more than ample and prevents long queues in the shower block. Shop with basic supplies and meat products from the farm's stock. Restaurant with home cooked meals and takeaway service, with communal garden area. This is set slightly lower level than camping field, so no noise travels. Freezer for ice packs not great as it's in constant use (door gets opened by campers frequently), so we prefer to take electric fridge and pay for EHU.

No floodlights, so when the sun goes down, campers retreat and all is quiet and calm. Rare late night noisy neighbours, who may have chosen the wrong site, are advised promptly the following morning, which doesn't need to happen often!

I've never wanted to go to the same place twice. 2015 will be our 5th main summer holiday there, which says it all really.

Well, what can I say that hasn't already been mentioned. The views are wonderful, the shop is spot on and the site is lovely. We didn't eat at the restaurant but the menu looked good and reasonable. The toilets and showers are of a good standard and our son loved the play park. The toilets always seemed clean and stocked with loo paper and soap and no queues although the site was very busy. I wasn't too bothered about the 50p for a shower, it meant that people were in and out rather than hogging them; also there was a good number of loos and toilets.

We were on an electric hook up overlooking the sea and although very busy it didn't feel like our neighbours were on top of us, it's a well spaced out site.

There are beaches that are a walkable distance and some lovely little areas to check out. We liked the little sandy bay at Gorran Haven and the handful of shops there. We didn't make it to Hemmick Beach but found the campsite a great base for exploring Cornwall. Lands End and Penzance were about a 90 minute drive away, Tintagel Castle (purported to be the birth place of King Arthur) was about 70 minutes away and Newquay about 40 mins. There is a great museum at nearby Charlestown (shipwreck and boats etc). Check out Wingz on the outskirts of St Austell, a lovely little bird sanctuary with a few other animals like the cheeky Meercats and tortoises. The family that run it are clearly passionate about rescuing birds and animals. They do a nice cream tea too.

Be warned the A30 can be a bit of a mare, lots of tailbacks and a handful of crashes and if you're not a confident driver be wary that a lot of the roads are single tracks with high hedgerows and limited visibility due to twists and turns (and the sat nav seemed to like choosing these roads as routes!).

The campsite shop stocks some essentials (including wine and local ales) and is open until 9pm and there are a few local village shops nearby but these close early, fear not though as there are a number of branded supermarkets in nearby St Austell which is about a 20min drive away and includes 24 hour ones. There are loads of petrol garages nearby, including one just before you get into St Austell and a number in the town (one is Asda's self serve) and the Asda garage was very reasonable and was £1. 28 when we left. I had put extra petrol in on the motorway fearing that I would struggle to locate a garage before we ran out and paid ridiculous prices (£1. 45).

If, like my other half, the football plays a big part of your weekend then head down to Mevagissy and check out The Ship pub, very obliging and put Sky Sports on for us (and the food was good too). We even saw a small dogfish shark hunting in the shallow port water there.

All in all very accessible to surrounding areas, lots to do and see and if it wasn't for the 9 -10 hour drive we'd be back like a shot! Thank you for a lovely stay x

Just returned from 4 nights at Treveague. What a fab place! We are family of 4 (kids 7 and 10) in a campervan, camping with friends who had a tent.

It has 4 camping fields. One large, one smaller, both with powered pitches, some protection from elements - some pitches not v private as they were close to facilities. Then 2 overflow fields - 1 higher up, with flat pitches at top and the most incredible views to coastline, the other sloping down to west coast, but some perfectly flat pitches or open space for pitching, with views of west coast. We were allowed to pitch at any non-powered free space on arrival - we chose our favourite - so big there was space for 6 man tent plus van plus car, and would have been space for a shelter if we'd brought it.

A campsite with enormous pitches, well spaced out. 360 degree views of coastline, great facilities, never had to wait for a shower, had a little line for the 4 ladies loos one morning. Always has toilet paper. Drying room, washing up (3 sinks, microwave, washing machine /dryer) and so jets for charging phones etc.

Lovely shop with food essentials, not crammed with the usual plastic tat places tempt children with. Also served really decent meals, beer etc. Treated ourselves to fantastic breakfast after packing up on last day. Also had a garden that was totally sheltered from the elements. The children sat there to play to have some quiet time on the windiest of days (when tail end of Bertha blew through).

Playground imaginative and great for our kids. Plenty of space in our camping field for kids to play cricket/footsie, kite-fly.

Walks to local beaches. Really nice walk to Gorran Haven with couple of shops/cafés, nice little beach - sandy bit got a little crowded, rocks on left offer some rock pooling. Also walked to Hemmick beach - stony beach and barely anyone there - some brave swimmers in the enormous waves! Both beaches totally idyllic, just everything we'd wanted to experience from cornwall.

We had one day trip to the Eden Project, but apart from that just explored locally. Really a place to escape to and enjoy cornwall.

Unfortunately our first impression was disappointment on arrival as having chosen the site due to the advertised cafe we were informed that it wasn't opened until the following weekend when Cornish schools closed.

It was a shame that they didn't let us know when booking as we would have been a bit better prepared and stocked up and as there was very little in the shop too we had no option than to wander down to the village - 15 mins via footpath from the site.

The cafe there was closed too (!) but the fish & chip shop supplied the by now irritable teens with delicious food.

Be warned though, not many places accept card payment and card machines are few and far between. Would recommend making sure you are stocked up in St Austell 7 miles & ~ 20 mins drive from the site.

Back to the site: we were fortunate to have one of the pitches with an outstanding sea view, second to none and would recommend this site for the peace and views alone. Had I been on the pitch right next to the bins I may not have found it such a pleasant site though.

Goran Haven village has a nice beach and small cafés and is only 15 mins walk and the wild secluded Vault beach approx 30 mins both direct from the campsite.

Toilets and showers were adequate and 50p for 4 mins seemed sufficient plus the hair dryer was free.

Laundrette only had 1 machine working and the door on that was dodgy.

Didn't use the play area as children too old, but there was plenty of space for ball games and kite flying and due to the layout the children mixed & played together. Didn't find the games barn but as the weather was glorious didn't need it.

We visited on the sunniest weekend of July - which was lucky for us.

It's a lovely site - not crammed full even though the school holidays had started.

We were non electric so we were told to pick anywhere we wanted in the fields above the main site.

The pitch was flat, but at the top of a relatively steep hill. There was only one toilet block - you've guessed it - at the top of the hill.

The view of the surrounding beaches from the top of the hill was stunning.

There was a good shop and restaurant on site - prices seemed about right - not extortionately OTT due to being on a campsite in the middle of nowhere.

For some reason the three of us all brought a car each - and we were not charged extra for this.

. Which is good - because you do have to pay for the showers. Only 50p but when you're paying £20 a night for 2 plus £3 for extra people I really think the showers should be free. It annoyed me.

The area was lovely. Lots of places to go, lots to do, nice walks etc.

If you need to do a food shop do it in St Austell because there are not many other shops nearby.

The staff were lovely, the grounds were great - and the ice cream rocked!

Love it!

We loved everything about this place, the views of stunning coastlines and countryside, the play area was amazing my 3 year old loved this, also the birds and animals we're a big hit with her and my 1 year old alike, there was a definite soft spot for the pigs, that we're topic of conversation all the way home. We loved how close it was to some truly amazing beaches, we took the roads as opposed to the footpath as we had a buggy and again it was very scenic and not to far, we have been camping a lot and I must say the toilets we're among the cleanest and best kept that we've seen, all toilet blocks have there busier times of the day, but the queues for anything we're minimal and not a problem. We love going camping for the relaxed, happy and chilled experience and that was definitely what we got here, the staff and owners we're so accommodating and helpful, we just cant thank them enough for making our holiday the best yet! We will definitely be returning.
