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.

It's a shame no notice or information was given about when the cafe would close. We've been caught out by this on previous stays.Campsite is nice and flat but the lights are unnecessarily bright.Facilities are very dated and not well kept but clean enough.

Overall the site was a very pleasant site to stay on with big skies, pleasant staff and clean facilities. Unfortunately the weather was not kind and because of the soft ground we did suffer from it being a bit boggy.

This was our first time staying at The View but we’ll definitely return again soon. It’s a small campsite but the pitches are a good size and you can select one that suits your unit. Toilets and showers were clean and tidy and the shop was a nice addition. Very dog friendly too with a short walk down to Watergate Bay. Would recommend to anyone!

Perfect location just a short walk from the beach at Watergate Bay, our pitch had stunning sea views. The facilities were very clean and tidy, lots of hot water in the showers, pitches clearly marked and the site was neat and peaceful. Booking was very easy and communication from the mangers was excellent, queries answered promptly etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.
