Good

cheap,good transport provided, party atmosphere

users too young, unclean, lawless

The site. The site its self is located about 2 to 3 miles away from the centre of newquay, tucked away where you cant be found. It is not one site, the whole complex is called Travelgue, with the "roudy lot" being tucked away at the back of the site, that end being called Smugglers Haven. The...

Nothing says good morning quite like a fresh dump on your car! If you were thinking this site was a low key, relaxing, student friendly atmosphere, you and I were sadly mistaken. 18-30?!, read the small print on the site because they allow 16 years olds onto the site as long as there accompanied...

dirty bathrooms and long queues, can be loud

This was our first visit to Newquay, and I don't think it could have been much better! A group of three 23-year old girls, surrounded my hundreds of fellow youngsters all up for a good camping time. If you're looking for a relaxed, peaceful, luxury campsite, this is definitely not it. However, we...

Smugglers Haven in Newquay is a popular destination for 16 year old teens to stay after their exams as a sort of get away break, I'm not sure how this started, probably because Smugglers is one of the only sites that would let 16 year old kids stay without parents, however I believe the site has...

“What Were They Smuggling?”

Very cheap indeed. Great buzzing atmosphere.

Facilities are very basic, and of low standard. Th...

Smugglers Haven is a static caravan site in Newquay, Cornwall. Aimed at the 18 to 30 market, it attracts the people who gave Newquay the name for being the best club scene in England. With that in mind, me and 8 friends went down in July this year for a week of drinking, and partying. We went for...

When you first arrive at Smugglers Haven or Trevelgue Park as it's also called, you go to the main office and it all looks quite smart and the surrounding caravans are all clean and modern. Then they send you up the lane to the Smugglers Haven area and the contrast is vast. The first caravan we...

Bad phone signal :(..... Seagulls

Me and 3 of my friends decided to go to Newquay to celebrate one of our 18ths, and she decided to go camping. I have never been camping before and after reading the reviews of Smugglers Haven tried to do ANYTHING to get out of it! I even looked up train routes from newquay to get home if i wanted...

I went to this caravan park with a group of friends for 1 week in August when we passed our A-Levels and, after sorting out our accomodation, we all had such a fantastic time we didn't want to come home. We had booked to stay in a 12-berth house called the 'hollow bungalow', but when we arrived...

So what is there to say about smugglers haven? Well for starters, a lot less than there is to say about most of the whining k**bs on this review page who paid nearly f*uck all for an over 18’s campsite in Newquay only to complain that the clientèle was somewhat lacking in the social dexterity...

Smuggler's reppresents everything that is bad about Newquay. It's dangerous, threatening, full of abusive chavs, drunk 14 year olds and generally bad people. While I was there i saw a drunk driver crash a van into a caravan, and a constant parade of drunk chavs trying to pick fights with people...

After reading some awful reviews about smugglers haven I thought I should share my opinions. I went, expecting the worst and was plesently surprised. We were in a group of 5 people in our late twenties and were probably the oldest people on the site. We camped for a long weekend for the...

Cheap, cost effective, regular buses

Can come across some quite 'chavvy' types

Woah, what can I say. Smugglers Haven was quite an experience. Yeah, there are negative points however I feel there is only a cirtain amount of quality you can expect when going on a 18-30's holiday. I went with another 2 boys and 3 girls each of us 16 expect one girl who was 15. No ID checks...
