 Given the lock-down, I am remembering a wonderful week on this peaceful site last Summer. I went with my family and had a lovely time.

The park is in a Northern town called Mawgan Porth and it is far removed from the commercial parks that you usually find in Cornwall.

If you are looking for a park with character within 15/20 minutes walk from the beach, this should definitely be an option.

We went in our motor-home but you can also rent statics which seemed high quality.

We enjoyed using the cafe near the park and will definitely re-visit when the lock-down is over.

 Enjoyed our visit to Sun Valley pitch sizes are good facilities are also good only draw back was no phone signal and no wi fi but we knewn this before booking so cannot mark them down though this.

Road to site is for the most part single track but as they run a double decker bus on this route it is easy to get to and from if you are sensible.

All in all a very nice site, and benefits from being within 20 mins walk or 5 mins by car from Mawgan Porth.

Would we go back - Yes no problem.

 Lovely campsite, loads of room. We went leading up to the Whitsun holiday, it was lovely and quiet. Great walks, loved the woodland walk to the villages of Mawgan Porth and St Mawgan. Staff friendly and helpful and the site was well maintained and clean. There was wifi, but this was intermittent, as there is no phone signal on the campsite and not too good in the village either, I would recommend the Wifi is improved. TV signal poor, okay with a satellite dish however. Would recommend this site.

 We stayed here for 2 weeks at the beginning of August with our two children aged 7 & 9. We were joined by other family members during our stay and had 4 pitches with 5 tents within our group.

We enjoy the quieter camp sites without the noisy entertainment and this is certainly what you get. They have a rule of no noise after 10. 30pm and while it seemed a bit strange when we first heard of it we ended up being in bed before then anyway so it never bothered us. You will need to have a large note book for all of the rules though, sometimes less rules make for a more pleasurable stay.

The walk to Mawgan Porth beach is more like 20 minutes but it is a very level walk through the woods and with a fabulous sandy beach at the end it is worth it.

Good points:-

The facilities were always kept clean,

Only queued once for a shower in two weeks,

Kids play area was great for our children

Walk to the beach,

Bad Points:-

The only playing field is on a slope (the pitches are not)

Our pitch was small but we were warned of this when we booked. There were larger pitches on the site but none available for us when we booked.

We would definitely return to this site as the location to the beach was very convenient. We tried to visit other beaches but couldn't get parked and ended up coming back to the site and walking to the beach.

 My husband and I stayed here as a last minute getaway and were really pleased at how accommodating the staff were to fit us in and on a lovely pitch space! Standard camping with no electric hook up. We forgot our mallet and they were more than happy to lend us one.

The grass was very well maintained and each pitch was well marked and a good size. We had a lovely spot with the stream running behind us.

The site itself was well maintained and no complaints. The price reflects the site and no hidden charges for the showers, I think the family bathrooms were free up until the end of July (summer holiday peak!) but then a fee is charged.

There is a small fee of 20p for use of the hairdryers and electric points in the ladies bathrooms.

The bathrooms are clean and well maintained - they are a funky green colour but nothing wrong with the facilities. I always got straight into a toilet or shower, no waiting but this might be different in peak summer as there were only a few showers.

Lots of water points and bins/recycling points

Location is tucked away and feels secure. We love Mawgan Porth for the shops and facilities near by, the walk is not difficult but I wouldn't want to do it with lots of beach stuff/body boards etc. My sister in law who also went found it a bit tricky with two small children/pushchairs etc.

Quiet at night time which is nice

We will definitely visit Sun Haven Valley again!

 We have just spent 8 nights at this site and have enjoyed every minute. Yes it was the end of season, and very quiet, so much so that they closed the main toilet block and we used the private bathrooms. The site is flat and very sheltered. It is very central for this area Newquay/Padstow. There is a short, pretty walk to the beach and in the other direction, to a Cream tea in St Mawgan. Beware the Double decker on the bus service - it does not call at the campsite - and you are never sure which service it will run on. Newquay airport is close by but does not disturb the peace too much. All in all a good site and we will return.

 Just returned from two weeks at this site, in my opinion site is better suited to tents and smaller motor homes due to the very narrow approach road, that said we found everything else A1. Staff were very friendly and helpful, toilets and shower blocks spotlessly clean. The local dog friendly beach is only ten minutes walk away as are the facilities in Mawgan Porth. We would certainly return to this part of Cornwall, but maybe not to this site, purely down to the access road.

 Went to this campsite for one week, pitch was large and flat with ehu. Excellent clean quiet site in a good location approx a one mile walk to the lovely dog friendly beach and local shops and 2 pubs. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Good shower block and is very clean. Also has a small shop on site. I look forward to returning to this lovely little site.

 Sun Haven benefits from its position on the beach holiday and surf coast of Cornwall and you can never take that away from the site. It is a completely adequate site with all the facilities you require and is well maintained. Unfortunately this is the fourth site we have visited this year so far, two were really good and the third was excellent. I think Sun Haven should consider up grading showers, toilets, washing up area and site lighting fairly soon. Sites elsewhere in the UK are moving on.

When we visited the the site was at full capacity and the weather was rotten. The staff worked hard to keep up with the mess the campers were creating.

All the staff I met were friendly and helpful.

The ground in the touring area was sodden after continuous rain, but I saw no sign of flooding or unusable pitches.

The walk to the beach is definitely at least 20 mins unless you march.

Despite the numbers we had no problem with hot water or queuing for showers.

There was virtually no noise after 10:30pm.

The information boards and information room were very good. Weather forecasts were supplied, which is good if you normally rely on the ipad or mobile, no signal.

Waste water disposal had hand wash facilities alongside, a good idea.

Campsite had no info on Lanhydrock House, it is well worth a visit, particularly in rain as much of the interest is inside the house. Get the kids interested in the quiz's to distract them. Us oldies spent nearly two hours inside!

Reviewer: Glenafletch 1 review from this member

 Firstly can we just say a big massive thank you to the management and all the staff. Our holiday hadn't started too well after the car broke down on the way to Cornwall, and, after our caravan was towed to Sun Haven Valley we came up against it again when the recovery vehicle could not get down the hill and round the hairpin into Mawgan Porth. With no hesitation, the owner came to help and hooked up our van and towed it to SHV even though it was late afternoon on probably the busiest Saturday of the year!

We have been returning to SHV for five years now and can only rave about the park, it's facilities, friendliness, silence policy and the surrounding area.

SHV is everything it says on the tin and more.

Shower and washing facilities are excellent and always hot water even at peak times.

Wetsuit cleaning area is a very good idea and helps keep the other facilities clean and tidy.

Good dishwashing area.

Excellent play area, games room, TV room. (Certainly more than enough for a 5 and 15 year old).

Fabulous information hut.

There is NO NOISE after 10. 30pm with wardens checking and politely asking anyone not adhering to quieten down.

Toilets are probably due an update but this, by no means, intimates that they are not clean.

The grey waste disposal area can be difficult to empty a full Wastemaster due to a bar across the front.
