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.

Clean facilities, easy to book. A wedding was going on in the field next to us & it was offered if we’d like to move from the noise, fortunately we didn’t need to

Friendly staff, clean facilities and great views

Smith, Tasmin - 28/09/2022

Overall, amazing stay as usual, the large pitch was big enough for our tent, gazebo and van with the dogs able to wander about on their leads too! Staff always very friendly and informative of the surrounding activities. Croissants and pan au chocolat’s baked in the mornings were an amazing touch! Views of the sunset always stun me. Location for minimal activities is perfect. Gate to walk to coastal path being locked was inconvenient but I’m sure there’s a reason behind that. Only slight dissatisfaction was people being allowed to pitch up past 11pm one night, which isn’t ideal when you have a 7hour drive early in the morning, but understand it may not have been avoidable. Amazing stay nonetheless, will be back!

Amazing sunsets

I found this perfect little campsite on my travels and will definitely be returning. The location is UNREAL, never see such amazing sunsets and the colours in the sky took my breath away, awesome. The staff are very welcoming and live onsite so you feel safe as a line traveller and the facilities are kept clean. The shop was superb and unexpected and we'll stocked. They also served hot croissants and pasties which made my day, after a surfing lesson. I had an amazing time here.

Superb site

Gratton, Ian - 25/09/2022

Excellent site with great facilities in a great position with stunning views. Lovely walk along the coastal path to the magnificent Watergate Bay beach. Short walk to the bus stop for frequent buses to Newquay and along the coast. Friendly efficient friendly site staff and very well stocked on site shop. Visited in September, shame the on site bar and cafe had already closed for the season as we would have used it. We will certainly return again.
