Should I be sharing or keeping this secret? An absolute gem of a site.
We spent 9 nights in June at Summer Valley. We decided on a fully serviced pitch which was perfect. It was level, well kept and with plenty of space. The owners were so hospitable, nothing was too much trouble. They even offered assistance with guiding us in and out which was appreciated. There is a small shop area in the office, which was convenient but the City of Truro is just a few minutes away. I must warn you that Kate and Phil the owners, very naughtily stock Callestick Ice Cream in there shops freezer. Even worse is the fact that Callestick Farm is only minutes away where you can tour the farm and eat more ice cream. What’s not to like! Seriously though this is one of the nicest sites we have ever visited and as we have been caravanning for 40+ years we do know a bit. Book now.
A wonderful, exceptionally clean, friendly site – highly recommended
We had a fantastic stay at Summer Valley in August 2017. The site is a lovely, quiet site that felt very secure for our children to play in. If fact, this was the first site we have found where we felt comfortable enough to let the children wander around the site on their own, with their new friends. All the facilities are well planned and exceptionally clean. The owners are lovely and it was great getting to know the whole family at a BBQ hosted by the family in our neighbouring caravan (everyone was very welcoming!). The wifi room is a good idea, as are the fire pits that you can hire. We will certainly be recommending the site to anyone planning on visiting Cornwall, and we hope to go back one day. Thanks for a great week!

A friendly welcome awaits all at this fantastic site.
We stayed for 15 nights at the beginning of August. The pitch sizes are a generous 9mx10m with plenty of space in front. this acommodates the modern tents with room for pup tents and awnings without the cramped feeling you often get at holiday camps. Kate and Phil are so warm and welcoming it feels like you have known them for years, a comprehensive tour of all the facilities with a good stock of local attraction leaflets provided in the welcome pack. The facilities on site are always spotless and there is ample hot water in the showers. The wash up area is, again, cleaned regularly and all housed in the amenities block. They have a nice lounge area with free WiFi and a nice book swap shelf to help while away the hours in this tranquil getaway spot. The shop holds all the essentials needed for those relaxing days at the tent as well as a hearty breakfast to set you up for the days adventures. Kate and Phil have great knowledge of the local area and are full of little hidden gems to help build those lasting memories.
Within 10 minutes of Truro and 5 minutes from the A30 Summer Valley is ideally situated for exploring everything Cornwall has to offer. Perranporth is the nearest beach within 15 minute drive for those surf lovers. Summer Valey is no more than an hour away from the furthest Cornish points east and west making it a great base location.
Summer Valley made our holiday all the more special and we look forward to heading back to see Kate and Phil next year.

Just returned from a great week camping. The site was easy to find and access, the facilities were very clean and the owners very helpful. The kids made lots of friends and enjoyed the play area and wifi area. The owners Phil and Kate gave us lots of advice on beautiful beaches, places to visit and best places to park. Onsite shop sold the essentials and local shop sold amazing pasties. We will definitely go back.
“We stayed there for four days last week in our motorhome and found the new owners extremely helpful and friendly… The site is very well positioned to explore the delights of Cornwall… being central to the main roads yet far enough away for peace and quiet… Everything about this site has been well planned to make things easy and is absolutely immaculate in terms of cleanliness!
We highly recommend Summer Valley Tourist Park to anybody passing this way… We will be back later this year!”
“Great place to stay. Good clean facilities. Friendly owners. Well maintained peaceful site. Very central. Easy to get to Perranporth and Newquay for surfing, Godrevy to see seals, stunning beach at Watergate bay for walking and watching the Dolphins. Also near to Truro for shopping and seeing the spectacular cathedral. We are regulars for several years and will definitely be going back again.”
“Great friendly place to stay. Excellent facilities. Central place to stay to get around. Third year of staying here and will definitely be back next year.”
“Lovely site with good clean facilities. Stunning views and a nice central location for getting out and about… Already booked to return see you next year… ”
“Fabulous site, friendly, spotless and great location. We extended our stay and would still be there but for commitments back home!”
