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.

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.

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!

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

Incredible views, super friendly, relaxed and spotless campsite

This camp site has such a lovely chilled family vibe, is small and friendly and the views are beautiful. Everyone was respectful of turning off music and keeping noise down later at night - essential with young kids. The toilet and shower blocks are kept sparkling clean, the showers and spacious and warm and the staff at the shop and in the cafe are lovely and very helpful.

Nice small campsite with great facilities

Been to many campsites in Cornwall and this is one of the best we’ve stayed at. Spacious pitches, clean loos, free showers, shop, cafe serving breakfast and evening food to eat in or takeaway. No “bbq police” (unlike at Treyarnon where the wardens would patrol after dark and give you a talking to if your bbq had too much flames or smoke!)Negatives are that it is a narrow strip so feels quite crowded when busy. People and cars passing close by to your tent at night (tip:Sleep at the rear of the pitch and buy ear plugs!). There is also a very bright white street light by the water tap which stayed on all night. The campsite is also at the end of the airport runway, great for plane spotting, not so great at 5am.Watergate beach is accessible via the coastal path, 10 mins, but steep coming back up. The beach is very busy at the entrance but empty further up towards the northern end.Newquay Morrisons is good for supplies and I recommend Zaman’s indian takeaway.We’ll return ne

Fantastic site, clean and well kept, minutes from beaches.

We had a week here and our three teens loved it, the canteen, the walk to the cliffs, the relaxed vibe. Nice to get away from the fracas of Newquay at the end of a day on the beach.
