Easter marks the beginning of the outdoor season and Cornwall’s Camping Champion Trevornick says nothing helps a family bond quite like a camping holiday!
It’s an adventure like no other, especially for youngsters, and recent research by Visit Britain shows camping is becoming a national obsession – with some 15 million trips made (that’s an eighth of all excursions in the UK) and other estimates putting it at 21 million trips of this kind by 2020.
As modern life becomes increasingly more manic and stressful, camping is all about taking time out to relax, renew and rejuvenate. There’s nothing better than communing with nature to put you in a better frame of mind and Trevornick embodies everything that’s fun and magical about outdoor family holidays in Cornwall – and then some.
This five-star camping and touring haven on the rugged North Cornish coast, near Newquay, rivals the best European sites for top notch facilities and amenities, plus it offers easy access to some of Cornwall’s most popular beaches.
It’s nestled in the sand dunes behind National Trust and family/dog-friendly Holywell Bay (you may recognise it from the atmospheric beach scenes in Poldark) and if you fancy a longer jaunt, you can reach equally stunning Perranporth, Crantock and Porth Joke beaches, along the scenic coast path, in a few enjoyable miles.
There are seven fields at Trevornick, with six different pitch types to choose from, ranging from the non-serviced on simple grass for seasoned campers, to super-plus, larger pitches, in a prime location and with connections to water, electric, drainage, TV and with an all-weather semi-hard standing base – so embrace outdoor living without always having to leave your creature comforts behind.
The facilities across the site are impressive and extensive too (there’s free new Wi-Fi in certain locations) and apart from the best in family washrooms and on-site launderettes, plus a handy hire shop where you can rent out everything from an electric hook-up lead to an airbed or pushchair, there’s a unique Fun Park comprising over 20 superb rides and attractions.
Other highlights include a heated outdoor swimming pool, golf course and pitch and putt, fishing lakes, ice cream parlour, kids club, soft play area and playground, farm shop, Surf School, sports field, nature trail and woodland, Tranquillity spa, games room and teenage hangout, laidback family eateries and lounge bar, plus with daily entertainment on site, you have all your family holiday requirements literally in one place.
This all adds up to a real outdoorsy family holiday to remember and when you and the kids work together to put up tents, cook dinners on a camping stove and eventually bed down, cocooned under canvas beneath the stars, the sense of satisfaction is hard to beat.
However, if you view camping as ‘roughing it’ then why not turn camping into glamping with a little pre-pitched luxury? We’re not talking gratuitous glamping -aka camping for softies, lol – rather removing some of the (perceived) camping fuss and making much more of the fun side of things.
Trevornick’s deluxe Eurotents have three bedrooms (with beds, of course), a fully equipped kitchen (including gas stove, microwave, full-size fridge and all utensils), internal lighting, a spacious living/dining area with seating, plus a TV/DVD and on-site movie channel.
With electricity, gas and plenty of storage space for your outdoor gear, plus your own picnic table, camping has never been so easy and rewarding, so embrace Cornwall’s saltwater lifestyle while enjoying your home comforts. Literally, all you have to bring is your bedding…
If you want the wholesome fun of camping, but also hassle-free, then Eurotents are for you. Kids love camping by the sea, full stop – and Holywell Bay is one of the UK’s loveliest beaches – so when parents get on the same wavelength everyone’s happy!
