Why stay here

Adventurers will love our Merrose Farm campsite in Trewithian. It offers a great feeling of open space and views of the surrounding Cornish countryside, as well as close proximity to a scenic coastal path for those wanting to explore. With charming narrow lanes, quaint fishing villages and sheltered coves, this area on the Roseland Peninsula is not to be missed.

You're only a stone's throw from Truro, Cornwall’s county town (and the area’s only city) which is worth a visit just for the stunning Gothic cathedral. There's also the indoor Pannier Market to explore, which boasts a wide range of traders, artists and crafts people offering a personal service.

If you choose to stay on site, there's a playground and play area for children, plus a good-sized dog walk for your four-legged family members. 

Family days out

There's plenty for families to get involved with nearby, including the Eden Project, one of the UK's top attractions. Explore the biomes which house a large variety of plants from around the world, the largest of which will transport you to the Rainforest and the Mediterranean. There's also an outdoor garden and the UK's longest zip wire if you're up for a real challenge.

Around half an hour's drive away are the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Here you'll find the Pleasure Grounds and lush jungle area, where you can cross one of the longest Burmese rope bridges in the UK, creating hours of fun for the whole family.

Activities & experiences nearby


Cycling

There are lots of cycle opportunities close to site, and you'll love exploring the Roseland Heritage Coast. Go further afield using National Cycle Route 3, which goes from Land's End to Bristol. Cycle east to Lost Gardens of Heligan or west towards Truro and beyond. Route 3 also connects with the West Country Way and the Cornish Way, so there's a wealth of opportunities to explore.


Walking

There's a wide range of coastal walks to explore on the Roseland Coast; why not explore St Anthony Head with the Fraggle Rock lighthouse and take in the golden sandy beaches of Molunan, or the port of Mevagissey and the West Bodrugan Wood Nature Reserve.


Things to try

Truro Cathedral - Truro’s cathedral is a magnificent example of gothic revival architecture, and one of only three cathedrals in the UK which has three spires. Admire the stained glass windows and historical artifacts as well as its imposing architecture.

Royal Cornwall Museum - Located in nearby Truro, the Royal Cornwall Museum is home to a variety of different exhibitions and artwork, inspiring the visitor to learn more about Cornish heritage, life and culture.


Pubs and restaurants

Head to the Hidden Hut, a small cafe with a simple lunch menu and evening 'feast nights' a few times a month. This gem can be found tucked away along the coastal path near Portscatho, less than 10 minutes drive from site. Similarly, Tatums in Portscatho is a coffee shop and taverna, offering wood fired dishes and pizzas to either eat in or take away. It's also worth asking the site staff about the fish and chip van which visits the site!

If you're up for trying something extra special, the Driftwood is a short drive from the site. With a Michelin star to its name, this really is somewhere for an occasion and guests can enjoy a variety of seafood and meats from innovative chef, Chris Eden. The restaurant has a no-children policy in the evenings, making it the perfect place to enjoy some quality time with that special someone.
