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.

One-night tent stopover

Gill, Chris - 18/05/2022

I stayed just one night on the site in my one-man tent during a long-distance walk in early May. It is close to the South West Coastal Path so in an excellent spot for that route. The ablutions were in excellent condition. The on-site shop/cafe is only open during peak periods so the nearest place for food is down in Watergate Bay. As a walker I needed some simple things such as a washing line and somewhere to charge my mobile phone that weren't available. Provision of those would raise my rating from 9/10 to a 10/10!

Great place to park up for a little while

You get a pitch & a sea view, there are clean showers & toilets and a bar that serves food and drink. Nothing else on offer, but if this is all you want then that’s grand isn’t it. It’s kind of like a runway with loads of pitches, I guess great for access to the beach. It was 0.6 miles walk to the watergate bay.

Short family stay

Wallis, Mich - 25/04/2022

The View at Watergate Bay is a perfectly situated site. Friendly staff, good size, flat pitches.Toilet facilities were OK, however showers were not hot and the seemed to be a bit of a smelly drain issue going on whilst we were there. Sister site provided perfect kids entertainment with indoor pool and play area.Will definitely return.

'The View', in my view, is the best!

Poles, Amanda - 23/04/2022

'The View' is called 'The View' because of it's stunning views of Watergate Bay. In my view, it's the best campsite I have ever been to. Why? Well, you get the warmest of welcomes, really well-maintained facilities, good food and provisions on site and it is peaceful, beautiful and restful. The owner, Mark, is a legend and he comes from a strong family who have provided wonderful camping opportunities for families in this exquisite part of Cornwall since the 1970s so he has a wealth of experience behind him. 'The View' puts their holidsy makers first; nothing is too much and they go out of their way to make sure that you're a happy camper. What's not to love? I think I've found my happy place and there's no doubt that I'll be back there as soon as I can!
