Cornwall’s destinations

If the stunning beaches, top family attractions and great local events don't do it for you then Cornwall's vast array of picture-postcard destinations surely will! Spend your time visiting the many chocolate-box fishing villages, small market towns and the picturesque city of Truro during your stay at our Cornwall holiday park

Follow in the footsteps of Ross Poldark by visiting the many film locations, wander around the streets of Doc Martin's Port Isaac (or Portwenn to give it its on-screen name), hit the shops of Cornwall's only city or grab a bite to eat in Rick Stein's famous seafood restaurant in Padstow, as you look out over the harbour - the choice is yours!

To help inspire you ahead of your stay with us, we've put together a mini guide of just some (and there are many more!) places you should visit in Cornwall...

Just a short distance from our park, the busy town of Looe is well worth a visit. Looe keeps visitors entertained all year round whilst still retaining a working fishing port. The town prides itself on it’s fresh fish, and is home to award winning fish and chip shops & restaurants.

Polperro

Step back in time in what is a largely an unspoilt fishing village close to our park. Polperro’s beautiful cottages cling to steep hillsides around a small harbour with spectacular views of land and sea making it an artist’s paradise. A must visit during your stay!

Fowey

Fowey

Fowey sits in the heart of an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and hangs off the side of a deep, natural estuary. It’s a picturesque town, with narrow streets and and is packed full of independent shops selling gifts, artwork, clothing and books plus top cafes and restaurants.

Lizard Peninsula

The Lizard

The Lizard is the UK’s most southerly land mass and is well worth a visit. Sparsely populated and boasting a spectacular coastline, with picturesque fishing villages, the Lizard has a completely different feel to just about anywhere else in Cornwall & is great for those who love walking!

Truro

Truro is a vibrant centre of shopping, culture and impressive architecture right in the heart of Cornwall. At its centre is an impressive cathedral and in its shadow is a warren of compact streets full of independent traders, leading national chains, cafes, bars and restaurants.
