It’s about 6 miles . You can do lovely walks from both venues . I guess you need to factor in if you want a 12 mike walk ?

Hi I am sorry I do not know if there are campsites near. Maybe Harlyn Bay caravan site. I know that Hendra in Newquay has wonderful pool but thats probably about 8 miles from Treyarnon
