Choosing Your Cornish Coastal Retreat: Static Caravan or Campsite?

Cornwall offers the perfect escape for those seeking a tranquil retreat with its stunning coastline, golden beaches, and charming villages. Newquay, known for its vibrant surf culture and breathtaking scenery, is a top destination for holidaymakers and locals alike. So you know where you want to stay, but how would you like to stay? 


Two of the most popular options are static caravans and campsites, each offering unique appeal and advantages. In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of each, helping you choose the ideal accommodation for your perfect Cornish coastal retreat.


The Appeal of Static Caravans


Comfort and Convenience


One of the main advantages of choosing a static caravan for your stay is the level of comfort it provides. Static caravans are equipped with modern amenities such as fully fitted kitchens, comfortable living areas, and private bathrooms. This makes them an excellent choice for families or anyone looking for a home-away-from-home experience.


The static caravans at our Newquay campsite offer a stylish and comfortable living environment that’s fantastic value for money. They’re ideal for couples and families who require a little extra space and those all-important creature comforts.


Weather Protection


Cornwall’s weather can be unpredictable, to say the least. A static caravan provides secure and comfortable shelter against rain and wind, ensuring your holiday is enjoyable regardless of the elements. This is especially beneficial for families travelling with young children or elderly family members. Rain or shine, you’ll have a cosy space to enjoy your time away.


Facilities and Entertainment


It’s the little things that make a holiday work, the practical things! And we’ve got that covered. Here at Trevornick, we pride ourselves on ensuring our guests have a wide range of facilities to suit their needs. Facilities range from recycling and drinking points to a hire shop and your own launderette to ensure a hassle-free experience. Not to mention, we offer entertainment, several food and drink options, a spa, and even our own golf course.




Whenever you’re away from home and staying in unfamiliar surroundings, it’s important to feel safe and comfortable, especially when travelling with young children. Trevornick Holiday Park is a secure site with overnight security, and a Duty Manager is available by phone 24 hours a day, offering peace of mind and maximising convenience for guests. 


The Charm of Campsites


Closer to Nature


In Cornwall, we’re very lucky to be surrounded by incredible views and scenic countryside. Staying at a campsite offers an unparalleled connection to nature and your surroundings. Waking up to the sound of the waves, breathing in the fresh sea air, and sleeping under the stars are experiences that encapsulate the essence of a Cornish holiday. For many, the simplicity and authenticity of camping make it the preferred choice.




Campsites can be a more budget-friendly option than static caravans, making them ideal for those looking to explore Newquay and its surroundings without overspending. By choosing a campsite, you can reserve more of your budget for activities and dining out, enhancing your overall holiday experience. However, if you’re looking for convenient and cost-effective options that don’t require you to go offsite, check out our range of on-site facilities




Campsites offer lots of flexibility. Trevornick’s five-star facilities provide a huge choice of pitches in a stunning coastal location. Boasting seven fields with multiple pitch types, you can find the perfect plot for your tent, touring caravan, or motorhome—from traditional grass pitches to semi-hard standing with electricity and water points.


Our campsite in Newquay has 200 spacious acres of pitches with stunning views over Gull Rocks and Holywell Bay. Oh, and some of our fields are dog-friendly, so all the family can come.


Community Spirit


Trevornick Campsite creates an unrivalled sense of community among guests through a variety of amenities and activities that encourage socialising and interaction. Our communal spaces include the outdoor pool, spa, and fishing lakes, where guests can relax and get to know each other. 


Additionally, the on-site entertainment, including live music, themed events, and children’s clubs, provides ample opportunities for families and individuals to connect and share experiences. Our friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere boost this sense of belonging, making Trevornick not just a place to stay but a vibrant community for visitors.
