Campsite Review: Tollgate Farm Caravan and Camping Park - Perrenporth, Cornwall

Posted on July 16th, 2011

Now we have our new shiny camper van we can now actually go camping! We kicked off the new season with a trip to Tollgate Farm in Perranporth, Cornwall. We chose this site as the website boasted beautiful dog walks through the dunes - they certainly didn’t disappoint!

Our pitch was level so no use for our brand new chocs! Our pitch looked out onto the dunes and surrounded by hedges and wildlife (the dog spotted several rabbits!).

We hooked up and after just a two hour journey the dog was egar for a walk! We were given a leaflet with several walks direct from the park and decided to take one through a golf course and sand dunes leading onto the beach.

We made it down to Perranporth beach in half an hour and came out by the Watering Hole pub. The walk was a little steep on the way back but there is a bus stop right outside the camp if you wanted an easier option.

With the dog exhausted we close up for the night!

The next day we explored the campsite a little more. There was a range of pitches (hardstanding and grass), the shower and toilet block was extremely clean and had free hair dryers. The site also had free wifi (for 15 mins), launderette, children’s play area, animal area, small shop and food bar.

We did the same walk again the next morning and wandered round Perranporth town centre.

This was a great start to the camping season. The walk to the town centre and beach was fantastic and the site was clean and owners very friendly!

Have you been camping in Cornwall? Is there a campsite you’d recommend?

    Definitely agree - however getting the interior done has hit me hard on the pocket so I am waiting to get some funds back up in order to get the bumpers / wing mirrors colour coded, chrome grill added and some chrome side step bars.

    Saying that though I also want the pop up roof done so that will probably happen first.
