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 stumbled across this campsite by accident as we were heading to the one next door but they were so expensive we left and tried this one and we're very pleased we did. Tina was super helpful and good fun.

Lack of flexibility

Moy, John - 12/05/2024

I booked the campsite so my son could attend a surf competition. Unfortunately the competition was postponed and I thought you would be able to just postpone the booking by a fortnight. I accept that your T&Cs clearly state this isn’t possible and it wasn’t your fault that the comp was postponed, but thought you would be able to show some flexibility, especially as you were not fully booked? Unfortunately this has now put me and my friends off booking with you in the future for surf competitions.

Uninterrupted view of the sunset

Austin, Clare - 10/05/2024

Uninterrupted view of the sunset Very clean facilities and great hot showersOnsite shop, restaurant/cafe and barWalking distance to Watergate bay beach, restaurants and bars as well as the local village pub called the Travellers Rest which is dog friendly. Only slight negative for the site was the food which was a little cold and pizza base not cooked. Didn’t spoil our trip though and we are rebooking a return trip in a couple of months!
