 Please note that as of 2022 this site no longer offers any touring caravan, motorhome or tent pitches. It now only offers accommodation for hire

If you know that this situation has changed in the future, please could you let us know. Many thanks

 We have just come back from two weeks at this site and I now know why they call it unique!. I have never been to a site before where the staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they always had a smile for you.

The toilets are spotless and although the showers are a bit small they do have a proper mixer tap and not a timed push button, really good pressure too!

The indoor pool was loved by the kids and we got some relaxing time in the spa which was limited to adults only (good idea).

The bar and clubhouse is a bit campsite style but non the less the food was very good and the drinks reasonably priced. They had an entertainer called Clare who kept the the kids occupied and also ran an evening disco and entertainment programme.

We spent most of our evenings in the awning but on the odd occasion we went the atmosphere was always good and friendly.

Looe itself is a typical Cornish port and has a good mix of shops, cafes and the like. Further afield Polperro is worth a visit but you need to leave your car at the top and either walk or take the horse drawn carriage to the harbour.

There are also some nice beaches and plenty of rock pools.

All in all we had a great holiday and will definitely be going back to Tregoad Park if for no other reason than to be greeted by the staff.

 With all the facilities this campsite has, it should be a lovely place to stay but unfortunately itís not. For us the issue was some of the visitors with seasonal pitches, we went to the clubhouse on the Friday and Saturday night and we felt uncomfortable and intrusive to what seems to be a large clique where any form of behaviour is acceptable. These individuals were loud, swore a lot, boasted loudly of cheating at the quiz (they won!), while others not in the quiz shouted answers and talked over the poor lady trying to run it, they seemed intent on generally spoiling it for everyone else, itís a free quiz for a bottle of wine so no big deal just indicative of what was going on. These guys also gossiped about the behaviour of others, apparently someone regular had been given a warning the weekend before due to bad behaviour and generally they left their kids to run riot while they were in the bar, using outside using the patio furniture and walls as an obstacle race challenge.

On leaving, we mentioned this to reception, mainly in respect to the swearing, who stated that this was unusual (not according to the gossip!) and they pride themselves on being a family site.

Another real issue was that site requests that dogs are kept on leads, we have two dogs and abide by the rules but felt we were the only few who did, a lady exercised her German shepherd in front of our pitch several times a day with a ball thrower, we had a black lab circling our van at one point and a small, white Terrier trotting around by our pitch several times.

Advertises Free WiFi, although we could see several access points, we werenít able to connect once. We only used the bottom toilet block and not the unisex facilities but they were clean if a bit outdated. We didnít have an issue with the cleaning times but we are not particularly early risers.

The touring pitches have EHU included, lots of water points around the site but no drive over grey waste for motorhome. The local roads just outside the camp donít have paths and the cars come quite fast but if you chance it, the Coddy shack about 20 mins walk towards Looe is well worth it

This site has such potential, itís in a lovely spot, with walks down to the river and lakes, it has a good size swimming pool and jacuzzi, the pods add character and provide an alternative camping experience. The bar itself is well run, a good size and the food is good pub grub, served quickly and there is a bus stop outside the camp with regular service to Looe and Plymouth.

There is work going on at one end of the site and we are told they are adding more facilities like a Spa and gym but even that wonít tempt us back.

Reviewer: Doris43 5 reviews from this member

 We were very disappointed with this site and find it hard to believe they are rated as 4 stars, as itís in need of ALOT of TLC.

The pitches are on terraces set within the hillside (from which you have great views) but the roads to get to pitches are very narrow (if youíre towing) and the corners very tight to manoeuvre around as there are fences and lampposts on the edges.

We had a gravel hard standing pitch, but there wasnít much gravel on it and there wasnít much space to manoeuvre the van onto the pitch, luckily the pitches opposite were empty.

The site has ALOT of people living on site permanently and they all seem to live in HOBBY vans (I have never seen so many in my life) or RVís. Some vans still had their Christmas lights on !

The ladies toilet and showers were always very clean and warm but the gents was closed due to a burst water pipe and the unisex facilities had to be used but werenít very warm or inviting (according to my partner) and he showered at the facilities within the swimming pool

The lady on reception and ALL the staff were very pleasant and welcoming and the site is in a lovely location and ideal for visiting the local area on buses (that stop at the site entrance) itís just a shame about the state of the site. 

Date of Visit: February 2018 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Dartgirl81 24 reviews from this member

 We visited this site in February, it had been raining for about 3 weeks solid so the ground was very boggy, but you can't control the weather.

The approach was very good straight off of a main road, and well signposted, but quite a steep drive up to the actual reception of the site. There is a bus stop at the bottom of this drive, which we used to get a bus into Plymouth, bus was on time, but it's a struggle back up the hill when you get back!

Well the site.

Very, very tired looking, in fact my husband wanted to leave more or less straight away. The reasons?

It reminded us both of a breakers yard (think Steptoe & son) the site is mainly taken by touring caravans on seasonal pitches. On lot's of these pitches were rusting garden furniture and bbq's plus the odd tv aerial piled up, not to mention lot's of windbreaks that were standing about shredded from the previous season. Management really need to address this as it really is an eyesore. Not sure they will as others I spoke to on this site who were on seasonal pitches said the manager/owner isn't really interested, and is very, very inconsistent with what items are allowed on pitches.

Free wi-fi, unable to connect during the 2 weeks we were there.

Toilets and showers on the lower and upper levels. Very tired and in complete need of modernisation, especially the ones on the upper level. The shower cubicles are really small and it's not easy trying to get dry in them. They are at the moment adding lots of new camping pods, but I'm not sure how the toilets and shower blocks will cope with the extra usage??

And our biggest bug bear, was the cleaning of these shower/toilet blocks. ANYTIME BETWEEN 8. 30AM AND 10. 00AM. ?????? They remain shut during this time, what a weird time to clean at the busiest time of the day. So unless you're up and organised forget getting a shower or using the loo until after 10. 00am at the earliest! The cleaners said they were always getting moaned at but 'management' insisted this was the time they had to clean and this included during the summer/peak times.

The swimming pool was open during our stay, this also had a large jaccuzzi. Ok but couldn't get dry as everywhere in the changing rooms was dripping wet.

Lower touring pitches were meant to be hardstanding, but to be honest there isn't an awful lot of gravel left on them and needed to be re-laid.

The shop was fine and I imagine in 'season' would be a good asset, it sold lots of camping stuff, but at this time of year obviously didn't have a lot in it, only tin stuff etc and the odd pint of milk.

The staff were very, very helpful and friendly. The wardens were willing to help and were embarrassed and agreed with our comments on the state of some of the pitches and the piles of stuff which were left on them during the winter season.

I know this isn't a good write up, but it is accurate.

The owner really needs to look at this site, and implement a clearing up campaign, particularly those pitches which look exceptionally untidy. 
Management response: I am the owner of Tregoad Park and have recently returned, at the beginning of February, having left the park under management control for the last 3 years. I have to say I agree with your review at the time of your visit. Since February we have gone through a major programme of improvement to bring the park back up to scratch. Seasonal pitches are being completely cleared and rejuvenated and the facilities are being revitalised and maintained. By the end of April we intend to complete works to bring Tregoad back from the Steptoe image to the 4 Star park it has historically been.

Regarding Wi-Fi we are in the process of fitting a dedicated leased fibre line giving us high speed access across the park which will be free to all customers. This may take a little time as we are in the hands of BT but please be assured we are doing everything we can to expedite matters

 If you are looking for a quiet winter site in lovely countryside and you have a dog plus enjoy swimming this is definitely the site for you.

Located just outside Looe, where you can either walk to or catch the bus which stops at the end of their drive. The sea and coastal footpath is less than a mile away.

The site itself is on level terraced pitches with perfectly adequate facilities. It boasts at no extra cost a good sized swimming pool and spa.

If you have a dog there are almost endless walks straight off the site.

The site is aiming for the winter camper and has prices that are extremely tempting. The staff in the shop/reception were always very pleasant.

Hard to beat this as a quiet winter getaway. But the summer I suspect it transforms itself into a busy family resort.

 Having just returned from Treagoed I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the site. The position of the site is great with easy access to looe and surrounding area. I was hoping since my last visit in 2012 the touring pitches might have improved. But on arrival we were greeted by the same sight as last time I know space is a commodity but having vans and tents on top of each other is not the ideal holiday. The touring site toilet facilities were to say the least adequate. But if you ventured up to the static tourers toilets. You was greeted with excellent facilities. The club house is a great facility good food at reasonable prices but I was a bit perplexed when I was told that there is a 10% discount for static tourers on food and drink. But if that's how they run it so be it. The new crazy golf is a total wash out £10 pound for a family of 4 I am no scrooge but really. The one saving grace is the pool well done with that. If you want WIFI then this site offers it for free because the lady said its that bad we could not charge for it. For the little ones there is a nice wooden playground and of course buggie bev at night time.

Would I return the answer would be no unless its upgraded the touring pitches and toilet facilities.

 I cannot recommend this site enough!

From the outset - Finding it was a piece of cake (even for sat nav!), the staff bend over backwards to help - from reception to cleaners/maintenance, the site is 'almost' mannicured - Yes, it's that clean!

Alright, it's no Ibiza but the restaurant/bar is good value and the food is good, the pool (although not olympic in staure) is good for a few lengths and the shop is well stocked. The toilets/showers/washing up facillities are spotless, plentiful and well maintained

There's a permanent 'staff' presence 24/7 so you feel secure - they'll even supply bricks for your bar b q so you don't scorch the grass (all bought to your pitch via golf buggy)

Excellent site, will definitely visit again

 This was our second time to Tregoad after it being recommended by my brother and it's currently our favourite nearby site.

We only live about 20 - 25 minutes drive so when the weather is nice a hasty trip is planned and off we go! We are going again this weekend in our new (used) tent and have gone for a fully serviced pitch this time. The last two times we went we were put on the non-serviced pitches in the first area of the site, but these are on slight slopes so we ended up sliding off our SIM's in the night. (Also a bit disorienting when had a few cans and getting up off the chair!)

The site is sizeable and has great facilities, for both adults and children. Indoor pool (shallow at 1. 3m throughout but heated) with shallow sectioned area for children at one end. Jacuzzi in the adjoining conservatory too with clean changing rooms, showers and toilets.

Kids play park, cinema, games room (unfortunately a few things were out of service here).

The bar is relatively small, but was busy and seemed popular and the food looked good last time so we are giving a breakfast a go on Saturday!

Everyone is generally friendly, particularly all the staff who do a great job at keeping the place clean. (Think there was only one grumpy one our neighbour encountered!)

Toilet blocks, again, clean, lots of hot water, proper showers!

Shop has basics and is very well priced, not the rip off you sometimes come across.

Out of the main entrance and turn right and then turn into No Mans Land is a small post office called Bindown stores.

Out to the left, follow the road and as you pass Looe bay campsite follow the road to the left and there is a place called Sunrising / Barbican where there is a decent chippy and a Spar type shop which had a better selection without going down in to looe. It's also a decent place to park and walk down the hill into Looe, with a pub at the bottom. Have a pint before you make the big climb back up though!

Site is fairly easy to get to, some of the roads are a bit narrow but shouldn't cause any problems as there are a lot of sites in the area.

Well priced out of season (as little as £10 to £13) for 2 adults, but can be pricy in high season - £35 per night for a serviced pitched for a tent.

 Just had first ever camping trip at tregoad park; arrived Tuesday afternoon after 320 mile trip, really nice ladies on reception sent us off to the top field as virgin campers !

the views are brilliant but the weather wasn't, we had rain and night-time gales for 3 days---but then the weather broke. The fields are well kept and litter-free as site workers go around daily on golf buggies checking / maintaining the place.

its a short drive down to the harbour where car parking is a nightmare ! go over the bridge and park in the huge car park and then walk back over the bridge.

the site had everything we needed and more; shop, restaurant, bar(thanks rick), kids play area, outdoor play area, indoor pool, dog walking area and even a cinema ! We ate most nights in the restaurant as the meals are reasonable but large portions. There is a bar that has bingo, quizzes and competitions all hosted by the owner. My 2 kids loved it and wanted to stay another week, and it seems we are destined to return asap.

The site is very, very clean and well presented, even at 03.30am the toilets are clean and tidy also warm.
