Padstow Touring Park is Padstow’s multi award winning touring park.

The site provides the sort of cut-above facilities that usually involve braving a large, expensive holiday park: a state-of-the-art shower block, fresh local fish from the visiting fishmonger's van; free phone-charging points; a plethora of child-friendly features; extremely large pitches; and a noise ban after 10.30pm.

The campsite is a short stroll or bike ride to Roskilly's farm – famous for its ice-cream – where you can watch cows being milked, and try trifle, clotted cream and apple crumble flavours in the courtyard cafe. The farm is one of many great family days out from the campsite – two great beaches are within walking distance: Coverack Cove and the black sands of Godrevy Cove.

At our caravan parks you can go to sleep to the sound of crashing waves or wake up surrounded by lush countryside and best of all quality comes assured because everything listed here has been graded or inspected by a recognised inspection scheme, or has signed up to our accommodation charter.

Fans of retro will be in their element in Lovelane's period caravans, restored to their former glory and equipped with nostalgic touches such as thimble-like gold-rimmed cups from the Queen's coronation, a Goblin Teasmaid or a hand-embroidered tablecloth.

The campsite comprises just one lush field, in the shadow of an old granite church tower, with views across peaceful fields full of grazing cattle. A 15-minute walk through woodland leads to the secluded, shingle beach at Lansallos Cove. Sheltered on both sides by stacks of rocks, the sparkling waters resemble a huge natural swimming pool.

So, whether you’re bringing a tent, caravan or motorhome, you will find the right pitch for your stay. Many of our pitches are hedged or fenced for your privacy, with appropriately-placed utility points and electric hook-ups provided for your comfort.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.

A world away from the cuteness and crowds of St Ives, Gwithian beach is an altogether more elemental spot, pounded by some of Cornwall's most consistent surf. The campsite itself paints a bucolic picture. A thatched farmhouse, home to friendly owners Clair and Mike Hancock, greets guests at the entrance and the site has views of the village church and the gentle slopes of the countryside.

We have retained our Gold pennant rating for the third year running, one of only a few parks in Cornwall to achieve this standard. Plus we have been awarded Silver from David Bellamy for more than ten years. Parks are assessed on a number of factors, the cultivation of flora and fauna, the creation of habitats to encourage a variety of wildlife, recycling and resources / waste management. This involves an inspection by the local wildlife group as well as feedback from our customers.

Padstow is a quaint and historic Cornish fishing harbour town on the Camel Estuary with spectacular views, excellent walking and cycling, bird watching and beautiful sandy beaches. We are dog friendly, so the whole family can enjoy a fantastic holiday together.

Bodmin Moor might not be as big or as awesome as Dartmoor, but it has ample drama to stir even the most jaded of travellers, and there is no better way to experience the primitive beauty of the moor than under canvas – waking up to birdsong, hiking during the day and building a campfire in the evening (it is one of the few sites that allows guests to build campfires; and the farm sells its own produce.)
