Trevalgan Touring Park, St Ives, Cornwall
The 2016 winners of our Most Improved Campsite of the Year award fully deserve this coveted regional accolade. Hands-on owners Annette and Neil Osborne have continued to invest and improve the facilities and standards, totally transforming this popular holiday destination on the Cornish coast over the past four years. Beautifully landscaped and with stunning views across farmland to the sea, it is situated between St Ives and Zennor on the wild and rugged Penwith peninsula and is now one of the best parks in the area. Guests can expect very high levels of customer care, excellent upmarket toilet facilities, replete with family rooms and underfloor heating, spacious pitches offering both privacy and shelter, and a smart wood-clad reception and shop where freshly baked pastries and bread are available each morning. It’s the little details that set Trevalgan apart, for example, the two half-sized baths for toddlers, the unisex/family rooms where you can adjust the water pressure for children, the wet suit wash area for keeping sand out of the facility block, and the charity book exchange. Combined with the fabulous location, this is what makes the park so special and why people return year after year.
