The surrounding area is wonderful for walkers, hikers and cyclists. Walks to Kynance, Mullion, Cadgwith and the Lizard village start from the Holiday park so no need to drive. Spend a fun filled day with the family at one of the many beaches nearby which also offer various water sports activities. Take the kids to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and the Chocolate Factory and Craft Centre and enjoy touring the Lizard Lighthouse Heritage Centre, and of course the National Trust Lizard Point, the southernmost point of England's mainland.

Warm welcome

Upon arrival, we were welcomed by the owner and a very friendly turkey! The owner made me instantly feel at home and she explained where everything was situated.Despite being next to the main Helston-Lizard road, traffic noise was almost nonexistent!Will be returning to this site again next year.

Great touring site, lovely position on the Lizard Peninsular, a relaxed atmosphere created by Liz and Mike unlike so many other big camping sites these days. This is not our first or last visit, we’ll be back as Annie said.

Unfortunately we only had one night here and tried to cram in as much as possible locally. Site was perfect for us and Mildred, Gorgeous George and the chicks was definitely the highlight. Will be back for sure.

Flat grassy pitches and conveniently situated just off main road. Facilities were a little rustic but provided the necessities. Found the free roaming birds a nuisance (& messy!) especially the turkey who was loud & made a beeline for dogs. Overpriced.

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Little Trethvas.Staff were very helpful and friendly.Only issue was that we could not find a waste disposal point for waste water and also could not find chemical toilet emptying point. Maybe they just were not well signposted?

We were unable to get into another Lizard campsite so this was our first stay at Trethvas. We liked the good size plots, however toilet & shower facilities are due an upgrade.

Relaxing and welcoming

Jesson, Tracy - 25/05/2024

We had a wonderful week at Little Trethvas in mid May. We stayed in the Cowshed, which is just perfect - it has everything you need- comfy bed, kitchen, decent shower and TV - not that we watched it much. It also has a lovingly cared for little patio garden, with entertainment provided by the exhuberant displays of George the friendly turkey. The hosts are really helpful and a goldmine of local knowledge. Liz was always happy to talk through ideas for our day, and all her recommendations were really good. So glad we came mid-May - the flowers everywhere were stunning. It's a convenient location, a short drive to many beauty spots and beaches. It's walkable to kynance cove from here but would be a bit far for younger children- about 45 mins - 1 hr walk (a beautiful walk though). There are buses - there's a bus stop right by the campsite- so without a car it is doable, but would take some planning- ask Liz for advice.

This is a very charming and rustic site in a great location for exploring the Lizard area and beyond. The facilities are good and the host cannot do enough to help you. The site is easy to find just off the main road the The Lizard and very close to bus stop.
