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.

Happy return

Neesam, Jane - 12/08/2022

We returned to this site after 6 years of not camping (following damage to our tent in very high winds on the same campsite). It was great to be back! We love this site. The staff are lovely. The other families on the site are always friendly and respectful. The facilities are clean and more than adequate. The cafe is a little gem with great food and gin bar. The walk to the beautiful Watergate Bay is easy and its great to leave the car behind.We booked quite late, so we were on a small pitch without electricity. Both were a bit challenging for us, and we would prefer a larger pitch next time. It would be great if there were lockable charging points for phones, as this is the only thing we got in a pickle about. Just a suggestion.We enjoyed amazing sunsets and of course The View from The View did not disappoint. Was fascinating to see the Boardmasters site to take shape before our eyes.

A nice and clean campsite

I stopped here for 5 nights and overall impressed with the organization and cleanliness of the facilities it had to offer. The pitches were of ample size to pitch a 15m2 tent and park your vehicle. The walk down to Watergate Bay was 5-10 minutes and there was plenty on offer there.

Very good.

Close to five stars. The staff are lovely, this makes the difference, especially when compared to the C+C club. The location is ideal for us as it’s above the action of Watergate Bay, but very close by, plus loads of beaches just down the coast. You can also access the costal path easily. The cafe is a real gem, the food is great, tasty and well priced. It does get busy mind, but that’s a sign of popularity. The shop is a nice touch also. Facility wise, it has all we need, there’s an option of using their sister site’s facilities, but we have no need. Minor points, some of the pitches are small/close together. The road between some is not very wide, so manoeuvring a car needs extra care. This is only really an issue in the height of the season. The toilets needed a little more care late on in the day, some were unusable due to inconsiderate others. Finally, the cafe needs to loose the polystyrene take away trays ASAP. It is possible to source less environmentally harmful packaging.

Lovely view but picked wrong week....it did say peaceful and tranquil and after a hard year we needed that - however the park was full and unfortunately we were opposite some really noisy neighbours with no volume control.We would love to come back and try again out of major holidays.We only stayed 2 out of 6 nights. If as this picture it would be amazing.We have pictures of how it looked last week and not like this....

A beautiful campsite with fabulous views over Watergate Bay. All facilities are excellent and all staff go above and beyond to help and advise. There are many beautiful beaches close by and the site is positioned brilliantly to visit many other places in Cornwall.

What a gem!

Phillips, Ray & Debs - 04/08/2022

Amazing views, clean loos and showers. Well stocked shop, cafe does takeaway breakfast and dinner and gin bar means you can have a drink while you wait! Friendly, helpful staff and great location for touring. Walks along cliff top have spectacular views. But best of all is how the place makes you feel. Drive away with a smile on your face, dreaming of going back
