Local area

St. Merryn

Half a mile from Trewithen is St.Merryn Church and The Cornish Arms (Rick Stein’s pub) serving wonderful fresh fish and pub food, local beers and wines.

St.Merryn Village is one mile from the campsite and has pubs and restaurants, a fish and chip shop, newsagent, bakery, post office, shops and petrol station.

Take a look at: Rafferty’s Cafe Winebar and Malcolm Barnecutt Deli Bakery.


Local beaches 

Harlyn Bay

There are seven beautiful golden beaches and bays within three miles of the campsite. Harlyn Bay, Constantine, Treyarnon, Trevone, Porthcothan, Mother Ivey’s and Booby’s Bay.



Whether you are after a stroll around the picturesque harbour, an exploration of shops (Joules, White Stuff, Fat Face, art galleries and toy shops included), a speed boat trip or a meal, ice cream or pub crawl, there is something for everyone in Padstow.


Camel Trail 


This scenic rail route was converted into a cycle path many years ago. Bring your bike or hire the kit from Bridge Bike Hire (in Wadebridge) or Padstow Cycle Hire.


Coastal walks 

Stepper Point

The South West Coast Path is at its most beautiful in North Cornwall (we may be biased!). Take in views of Stepper Point, Trevose Lighthouse and Watergate Bay. North Cornwall is perfect for a Summer stroll.


Family Fun 


There is so much for a family to enjoy in Cornwall! If you would like a change from the beach then try a trip to Rock on the ferry from Padstow or visit the cinema in Wadebridge. There are also theme parks including Camel Creek Adventure Park (just four miles from Trewithen) and Lappa Valley perfect for the train lovers and fun seekers alike. But there is so much more to see and do in North Cornwall and further afield.
