Features & Facilities

Tipis are furnished with beds, rugs, low tables, soft furnishings and lanterns, with a fire-pit and seating area outside. Bedding packs can be hired as optional extras and firewood can also be purchased in advance. The site has two brand new compost toilets, urinals and two showers, as well as washing up facilities and access to fresh drinking water. Your stay essentials include a torch, comfy bed, soaps, toilet roll, furnishings and fire-pit. There is no electricity at Seaview Tipis, however, the neighbouring campsite in the field next door does offer a very limited number of power sockets.

Activities

The tipis sit in a "Dark Sky Discovery Site" which means the lack of light pollution allows for some of the best star gazing in the whole of the UK. For those who love outdoor activities this site is at the hub of some of North Cornwall's best beaches and National Trust Sites. From the site you can join the South West Coast Path and stroll to three of the local beaches - Porthcothan, Park Head or Mawgan Porth which are 20- 30 minutes away by foot. The Booby's Bay Walk is a National Trust recommended route starting in Porthcothan which offers views across Constantine Bay and onwards to the lighthouse at Trevose Head (1 hour and 20 minutes). You wouldn’t be on holiday in Cornwall if you didn’t give surfing a go! Or perhaps you’re a well seasoned pro - either way, the site has access to some amazing surf beaches and schools including The Surf Club or Kings Surf School in Mawgan Porth. Fistral Beach in Newquay is also only a 30 minute drive from away, with its world renowned surfing and extensive sandy beach. The Eden Project is a 35 minute drive away, booking in advance is recommended. Attractions include the 2 biomes, The Giant Bee, outdoor gardens and cafes and restaurants.

Food & Drink

Campfires at the site are encouraged, so bring your own food and drink to curate your own Cornish culinary adventure by the sea. Remember, they don’t have electricity - so we recommend you bring a long lasting cool box for beer, wine and perishables. They provide basic utensils to use on their firepits and watch this space for more information on pre-ordering 'make your own breakfast' boxes.

A new pop up kitchen called Stacks By the Sea are just next door to the site, a few minutes walk from Seaview Tipis Campsite, offering takeaway coffee, hot food & snacks throughout your stay. Otherwise head over to Catch Seafood Bar and Grill (01637 860372) in Mawgan Porth for epic sunsets and amazing seafood. Treadrea Inn in Porthcothan (01841 520276) or The Merrymoor Inn (01637 860258) in Mawgan Porth are both great too.

Newquay is only 20 minute drive South, which has hundreds of fantastic cafes, restaurants and shops. Along with the glorious Padstow, only 15 minutes North.
