One of the best beachside places to stay on a budget in the UK, with both hostel rooms and camping options.
Tregonnan Treyarnon Padstow Cornwall PL28 8JR 0845 371 9664
If you thought you needed deep pockets to afford bang-on-the-sea
accommodation in Cornwall, think again. Sitting on the edge of a surf-lashed
sandy bay, Treyarnon YHA offers excellent budget lodgings within stone-skimming distance
of the beach.
Choose from doubles, family rooms and dorms, or pitch up in the
sea-view camping field and enjoy full use of the hostel facilities – there are both tent-only pitches and bell tents for glamping enthusiasts, which include premium options with a cosy wood-burning stove. So, yes it's a hostel, but it's also got a bit of glam following a refurb – in addition to the communal kitchen and lounge there’s an excellent
café-restaurant and ice cream shack with a sprawling sea-view terrace where you can catch live music
sessions throughout the summer. As for the bar – "it rocks more than the cliffs", they promise. Non-residents are welcome – and whether you’re in
for coffee, a sundowner or a full spread of pizzas and delicious share
platters, this is the perfect place to end a day at the beach or a walk along the South West Coast Path. What's more, Padstow is just 4 miles away, Newquay 14 miles and the Eden Project a 45-minute drive, so it's really handy for some of the most exciting bits of Cornwall too.
