Little Trethvas

Little Trethvas Campsites, Lizard. A small and friendly site situated on the unique and unspoilt Lizard Peninsular, an ideal place from which to explore this wonderful corner of Cornwall.

At Little Trethvas we are certain you will have a wonderful,memory filled holiday as we are near all the special places the Lizard peninsular has to offer.
Fantastic beaches, Wonderful walks, Scrumptious food, Scenic drives through sleepy villages and wooded valleys, Trot off on horseback across the Goonhilly Downs or to the beach for a canter in the sea, While away a day in the idylic gardens that slope down to the river.

Explore the echoy creeks that branch off the Helford river and used to be the haunt of smugglers – If history is your thing we have iron age settlements, barrows and of course the tin mines to visit. This area is known as ‘The Menage’ in Cornish this means ‘Land of the Saints’, so paths dotted with Celtic crosses where early christian pilgrims walked criss cross the peninsular. Remains of little chapels can often be found in the undergrowth. Ironage settlements and burial mounds are dotted all over the Lizard and of course theres the tin mines to visit and learn about Cornwalls industrial past.
