Sun Haven Valley's Campsite Facilities
Situated in the idyllic Cornish countryside, just fifteen minutes walk from a large sandy beach, we offer the perfect spot to families and couples looking to enjoy the tranquil valley setting, but who also want a beach within walking distance.
Choose any pitch on our well drained, sheltered and level campsite in Mawgan Porth knowing they all have easy access to the main facilities. Outside of our busy periods, we are able to offer a double sized pitch (subject to availability) at no extra charge. Just ask if you're unsure of your dates - as a general rule of thumb however, if the kids are off school, then it's very unlikely to be available.
Children's Adventure Play Area
Safe and great fun! Our colourful towers stand ready and waiting for all the climbing, swinging, sliding and general children-tiring pursuits! A great facility situated centrally and, most importantly, away from the tarmac roads. The adventure playground features bridges, beam, ladder, swings, and other play equipment including outdoor table-tennis. Choose from the Sun Haven Express, a 35-ft play train, and a sandpit for the youngest ones and a well-decorated Wendy House - conveniently placed next to the TV and Games Rooms, for when they need a moment...
TV Lounge and Games Room
As part of the children's play area, you'll find a large swedish-style chalet, housing a large plasma colour-TV with a selection of tables and chairs in one half of the building, and on the other side of a dividing wall we have a pool table, a crane-grabber, 2p-pusher, table football, air hockey and a few arcade machines. The building is locked at 21hs30 each night during the high season to help comply with our evening silence rule, and we expect all under 18s to return to their accommodation at this point.
Computers & Internet
Our beautiful location affords us tremendous veiws, and spectacular walking routes, but costs us in signal-related services. Some of our guests prefer this arrangement - however it does mean that mobile television signal is extremely poor or interrupted - particualrly in the bottom of the valley where our camping and touring field is situated.
We can offer wireless internet access across much of the site. This is available for 0.5hr/day for free, but you can buy longer at a small charge (max £9 per week). PLEASE NOTE: We cannot guarantee that the WIFI will work with your device, or how strong the signal may be. We recommend you take advantage of the free period to ensure connection before purchase. If mobile or Wifi signal is very important to you, we can advise that most our local establishments such as the Merrymoor and The Falcon do have a much stronger Wifi signal and you can get mobile signal immediately by leaving the foot of the valley - some of our guests sit on the valley side and talk on their phone.
All mobile companies have listed Sun Haven as a black spot for signal, so we would rather advise that you will not get a phone or TV signal than offer false hope.
We have public-access internet stations in Reception, the Information Room, and the Games Room. These are static computers which are connected to the internet constantly. The information room is full of hundreds of brochures, leaflets and magazines, packed with information about attractions and events all over Cornwall. We have also collected menus from local restaurants and takeaways, which may be helpful, and guidebooks on National Trust Gardens and Houses throughout the county.
In addtion to this wealth of information, guests can take advantage of our free lending library, and swap or borrow books out that have been donated by ourselves and previous customers. There's an area of interest for everyone, including teenagers and younger children, and as many of our guests use this feature the selection on offer is constantly changing.

Microwaves, Freezer & Toaster
As well as award-winning bathing facilities, we also offer free use of our deep chest freezer for your ice packs (no food allowed, we regret) or we can loan ours out to you at a small charge. There is a small fridge to help keep things fresh and in the Campers Kitchen Area you'll find microwaves and toasters. There are washing up basins immediately opposite, and a food preparation area too. We regret that our pizza oven was removed in 2016.
Our Laundry Rooms currently accomodates two token-operated 10kg washing machines, two stacked tumble driers, ironing facilites and also a sink with a hot water supply for hand-washing any delicates.
We have a small shop in our Reception that stocks the essentials for your summer holiday - bread, milk, drinks, ice-creams and sweets to keep the children happy - as well as a few basics; salt, washing up liquid, tent poles... ASDA and Sainsburys also deliver to the site. Due to a series of unfortunate events, TESCO delivery vans are no longer permitted on site. Customers who choose to shop with TESCO will have to collect their shopping from the main entrance gates. We also sell Calor Gas and a selection of other gas refills.
We've tried to think of everything you'll need to help get you out, but feel free to let us know about any changes or ideas you've got in mind that might help you out on your next holiday - if you fill out a questionnaire you may even win it for free!
