The View at Watergate Bay

Newquay, Cornwall


106 Reviews

Park Description

Families, couples & dogs are all welcome here at The View at Watergate Bay. Our small camp site is in a stunning location on the North Coast of Cornwall, looking out across the vast expanse of Atlantic Ocean & along the beautiful, rugged coastline towards Newquay, the popular seaside town which is just 4 miles away.

Here you have the advantage of staying on a small and peaceful campsite with all the facilities at Watergate Bay Touring Park, just 300 along a quiet lane, available for you to use: Indoor Heated Swimming Pool, Skate Park, Tennis Courts (for a small fee), Pirate Ship Adventure Play Area, Mini Bus to The Beach (during peak times only), The Cribbar with free nightly entertainment (during peak times only), Large Shop, Games Room, Dog Exercise Field & Overnight Arrivals Field.

If you're looking for a well looked after campsite with generous, level grass pitches & clean facilities that is close to one of the best beaches in Cornwall, look no further.

Watergate Bay is a fantastic holiday destination. There are two miles of dog friendly sand at low tide, as well as rock pools & caves for the kids to explore. The RNLI patrol the beach during the summer, making it a safe place to swim & surf or body-board some of the best sets in Britain.

Even during peak times, due to the size and shape of the site as well as the generous size of the pitches, it never feels too busy. The site is surrounded by fields & the ocean, so offers a wonderful feeling of space all around you.

We visited in late September and were lucky to get a pitch at the last minute for our camper with a sea view, although in the near 50 mph winds this made for quite a buffeting!! We liked that the site had a quiet policy between 10pm and 7am which would be more of an advantage in peak season when more families are staying. As it was the campsite was probably less than half full with a good mix of couples families and small groups of surfers. It’s a shame that the cafe on site was closed as regulars said it served great food but the facilities although a little dated were kept very clean. The coast path is literally a field away and takes you to Watergate Bay in approx 20 mins or Mawgan Porth Beach in approx 40 mins, both have gorgeous beaches and a good variety of food and drink options. It is worth mentioning that the larger sister park a short walk away gives you the option of entertainment, children’s playground, skate park and tennis court, not to mention an indoor pool. Of course so much more is virtually on your doorstep by car. The lovely lady on our site was friendly and helpful, the reception also had a small shop which sold a few essentials at reasonable prices. All in all a great find, we will definitely be back.

The owner was very welcoming & informative & there was a cleaner there most days doing a thorough job of the onsite facilities. My only disappointment was that the cafe was closed during our stay & it would be nice if this could be open, even if just for weekends, in low season. We would definitely stay here again though & loved that the coastal path was at the end of the site & we could walk to watergate in about 10 minutes. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Probably half a mile plus walk down a very steep hill to the beach. Perfect for walks along the cliff or into Newquay itself ( approx 4 miles ). Very friendly staff and a clean site. There is a bus stop a few hundred yards away so you can get into Newquay etc, ( sister site runs a bus during summer months ).If you enjoy surfing and/or walks then it's ideal.

Staff could not be more helpful, allowing us to put a fence around our caravan and also added an extra day at short notice. Quiet site (just out of school holiday time) which was perfect for us, clean toilets/showers. The best views and one of the best beaches we have been to, everywhere is also super dog friendly. We will be back.

We booked this late, it was excellent value for money and a good 1st time camping experience with our puppy! The staff were friendly and more than helpful and even provided us with a sheet which gave us information on dog friendly areas. The camp site is less than a minute from the costal path, and a 20 min walk from watergate bay beach! The only think i would improve is the shower facilities, the shower didn’t stay on for long, the pressure wasn’t brilliant and took a little while to warm up! Other than that we had a fantastic stay at the view and we are looking at stopping again sometime soon!

I booked ‘The View’ because Watergate Bay is our favourite place to visit.....although we had a great pitch our ‘view’ was spoilt by another camper in front of us......I think if we came again I would like to specify being against the hedge as that seems to be the best place. I think some explanation on the website would be helpful to say that you do have a view but it may also be obscured if you are second row......

Staff were very helpful and friendly when I booked at last minute, thank you so much. It was disappointing that the cafe was closed.
