Where to Stay

great campsite

Watergate Bay's nearest caravan park - Sun Haven Valley Country Holiday Park

The best caravan park in the surrounding area. A quiet holiday Holiday Cravan parks in Cornwall.tents and tourers

Probably Mawgan Porth's best kept secret! - Only a 15 minutes stroll along a mainly level footpath from a large flat sandy beach - but hidden in the valley in Cornish Countryside. You will not have seen our static caravans unless you know where we are.

Families and serious-surfers only, on a no-club, no-bar, caravan park that enforces silence at 10.30pm.

What we are ?

We are open 12 months a year with both caravans and centrally-heated, double glazed chalets. Sun Haven Valley is one of the finest holiday caravan parks in Cornwall combined with a seasonal campsite for camping & touring. Just 2 miles from Watergate Bay, it is accessible by foot car, or take the bus that runs hourly past our front gate. Our static caravans have "Visit Britian" 2010 Rose Awards and the park has 4 AA pennants and a 5 star "loo of the year" award.

What we are not ?

We are not a noisy, all-dancing, all-singing "holiday park".

Primarily for families & couples, we have No club, No bar, and No evening entertainment and we have a silence after 22hs30 policy - so expect some early nights ! We also take small parties of surfers provifing that the surfing is more important than the "Apres-surf". Two local pubs, a restaurant, a supermarket & a take-away within three-quarters of a mile will provide the basics for you, but on site there is simply a TV room & a small games room and a small shop selling essentials.
There is a coarse fishing lake at the edge of the park and other local pursuits include golf, walking, surfing (including the KingSurf school on Mawgan Porth beach), power kite flying and kite surfing, fishing (sea, coarse and game), cycling, cliff climbing, abseiling and boat trips. (See our 'Activities' page.) - For more information see Sun Haven Valley.

There are also plenty of campsites in cornwall to choose from.
