Holidays on the North Cornwall coast: So much to see & do!

The North Cornwall coast is an area of breathtaking natural beauty, with dramatic landscapes and stunning seascapes all around. At our holiday park you’re perfectly placed to Explore Cornwall in all its glory… put your best foot forward on cliff-top walks, take a relaxing stroll on a long-stretch of golden sandy beach or discover the remote wilderness of Cornwall’s moorland peaks.

The North Cornwall coast is also a region full of idyllic fishing towns and villages and picture-postcard destinations that you simply have to visit. From picturesque Port Isaac – where TV’s Doc Martin is set – to the harbour town of Padstow, the home of celebrity chef Rick Stein.

For those who love the beach life then a trip to nearby Newquay is a must. Just a five-minute drive from our caravan park, this vibrant resort is widely regarded as the surfing capital of the UK. Home to the world-famous Fistral Beach, as well as six other stunning beaches, Newquay is a hive of activity in the summer months and is the entertainment capital of the North Cornwall coast region. Packed with shops, restaurants, bars and clubs as well as great family attractions, Newquay should definitely be on your list of places to visit.

Whether you’re an expert surfer, want to try the adrenaline-fuelled sport for the first time or prefer a quiet stroll along some of the finest beaches in the land, Newquay is the place to be. With seven magnificent beaches, each is slightly different to the last – and the area really is one of the jewels in Cornwall’s crown. From the busy surfer’s paradise of Fistral to quieter calms of Crantock Beach, you’ll be spoilt for choice as to where to pitch your deck chair or build that perfect sandcastle. As well as the beaches in Newquay itself, there’s also the sands at Holywell Bay – which is less than a mile from our Cornwall caravan park.

The vibrant town centre is also a great place to explore; it is bursting with shops, restaurants and bars. As well as it’s commercial heart, the town is home to a picturesque working harbour and one of Cornwall‘s main shell-fishing ports… and if you’re lucky you might even see the seals frolicking in the harbour or the dolphins in the bay!

Cornwall may be famous for its coastal landscape but one often overlooked asset is the beauty of Bodmin Moor. This mysterious and magical place is steeped in history and legend – including that of the infamous Beast of Bodmin Moor! It is one of the last, great unspoilt areas of the south west, covering a vast 150 square miles of moorland across North Cornwall. It is home to some breathtaking landscape – from the county’s peaks of Roughtor and Brown Willy to the magical stone circles of the Hurlers and Minions. If you enjoy walking and rambling, get your boots and explore this stunning landscape.
