5 Trethem Mill Tour­ing Park, Corn­wall

Practical Caravan - - Travel County Counsel -

Okay, so this site isn’t open dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son – but it’s still one of our favourites from the past year, and a reg­u­lar fi­nal­ist in our an­nual Top 100 Sites Guide. Since first tak­ing over the park in the early 1990s, the cur­rent own­ers have trans­formed Trethem Mill into an 84-pitch camp­site that of­fers real lux­ury, but at the same time, is dog-friendly – there is a large nat­u­ral meadow for dog walk­ing. Wildlife is en­cour­aged – the park has been given a David Bel­lamy Gold Award for Con­ser­va­tion – and you’ll spot bird boxes in the meadow and across the site. The spot­less wash­bocks are lo­cated in the main build­ing, at the heart of the site. Ameni­ties in­clude a li­censed shop sell­ing lo­cal pro­duce, an in­for­ma­tion area and a fully equipped laun­derette. There is even a herb gar­den, which you can raid to give your caravan meals a bit of ex­tra flavour. Chil­dren will en­joy the en­closed play park, where they can oc­cupy them­selves safely, and an ad­join­ing field for ball games. This award-win­ning camp­site – with five stars from Visit Eng­land and five pen­nants from the AA – is lo­cated on the Rose­land Penin­sula, one of the most pic­turesque and un­spoilt parts of Corn­wall and home to glo­ri­ous beaches, pretty wood­land and charm­ing fish­ing vil­lages.
