Seaview International Holiday Park is an award winning, five star holiday park on the southern coast of Cornwall. The park opens at Easter and closes at the end of October, and offers a full range of holiday options for travellers. In addition to a handful of well-equipped holiday homes, there are almost 200 pitches available for motorhomes and tents, all of which have electric hook ups available. There is also over 70 water and drainage hook ups situated throughout the site. Those who fall in love with Seaview and the surrounding coastal areas of Cornwall have the possibility of buying one of a small number of holiday homes.
For those who love to find the best weather in a domestic location, this great park on the Cornish Riviera is the perfect holiday spot. Although secluded and quiet, those looking for something more lively can take the short trip into St Austell, where there is always a range of loud and exciting activities for the whole family to enjoy.
The seas and beaches around this park are some of the best in the country, and while the northern coast of Cornwall is known for its somewhat wild seas and crashing surf, those here are much calmer, almost still in places, allowing for a relaxing swim in the sea, which is a particularly peaceful experience early morning.
Elsewhere, there is a number of world-famous tourist sites for you and your family to explore at your leisure. The Eden Project is only a 30 minute drive away, while a drive through the Cornish countryside will take you to Land’s End in just over an hour.
Whether you choose to make use of the excellent facilities on site, or take in the activities available in the local area, Seaview gives the whole family a memorable and exciting holiday experience that will leave you wanting to come back for more.

Just a mile from Caerhays Castle; famous for the many varieties of Camellias raised at the gardens. The Castle's beautiful gardens - open for several weeks during the Spring - are yours to enjoy.
St. Mawes, on the western edge of the Roseland Peninsula is famed for its clover leaf shape castle - built by Henry VIII in 1542. Enjoy the views out over the Carrick Roads - the estuary of the river Fal. St Mawes is a centre for coastal walks, sailing and other water sports. A regular passenger ferry service runs across to Falmouth. There are boat trips up the river Fal to enjoy and a small ferry service to Place House links St Mawes to the coast path around St Anthony Head
Only three and a half miles away, Mevagissey has a beautiful double harbour with superb views out along the coast. Look out for the Mevagissey Museum and Aquarium as you walk around the harbour. Mevagissey's picturesque streets and alleys are crowded with interesting shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Enjoy a fishing trip for mackerel - or even Sharks ! In summer, a passenger ferry can take you across St Austell Bay to the historic port Fowey - perhaps best known for its connections with Daphne du Maurier and other literary figures.
Further up the coast, Charlestown, a Georgian village, is celebrated for its unique harbour - built by Charles Rashleigh to export China Clay. The harbour is now home to 'Square Sail' a fleet of historic sailing vessels. The ships and harbour are now often used for filming ; The Onedin Line, the Disney film - The Three Musketeeers, and many more were filmed here. When visiting Charlestown, the Shipwreck and Heritage Centre is a must !
Already being called "the eighth wonder of the world", the Eden Project is far more than just the world's biggest greenhouse! Almost half-million people visited Eden to see the Big Build and, each year since then, over 2 milion people have enjoyed their visit to Eden.
The biomes take advantage of an old China Clay pit at Bodelva, 50 metres deep and the size of thirty-five football pitches. The main Biome is so big that the Tower of London could fit inside - and yet the structure only weighs about 400 tons - the same weight as the air within it!
Added to this are the exhibition areas, artistic and educational workshop space - and the most magnificent 2,000 seater outdoor amphitheatre, designed to accommodate all manner of local and international talent.
Eden is a developing project which has attracted a huge amount of interest already. Come and see what you've been missing!

Seaview is set in a peaceful location away from the busy seaside resorts. However, that doesn’t mean there is nothing to do! The beach, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are all easy to get to. In fact, all of Cornwall is easily reached from the site. On site there is plenty to do: it has a heated outdoor pool, tennis court, badminton, pitch and putt, crazy golf and giant chess and draughts. All the pitches have electric hook-up and good access to washroom, washing-up and laundry facilities.

As its name suggests, this site affords some wonderful views of the Cornish coast. It’s also just five minutes’ walk from Hemmick Beach, with its golden sand and amazing rocks.
The site itself is as delightful as its location. There is a wide variety of pitches, including super-large family plots with hedges on three sides (most
of the others are divided by rows of young hedging plants), and fully serviced pitches that include fresh water and drainage.
The atmosphere is calm and peaceful, and the colourful flowerbeds and Torbay palms add to the typical Cornish feel. The holiday mood is enhanced by the excellent amenities, including luxurious sanitary facilities such as under-floor heating. A take-away food service operates daily.
There are activities for all the family, including a large outdoor heated pool complete with sunbathing terraces and a view of the sea. There’s also tennis, crazy golf, boules and a five-acre children’s play park. Use of the leisure facilities is included in the price, which explains why the cost is higher than on some other sites.
Seaview is within easy reach of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project, Truro, St Austell and many superb beaches.21 Apr 2006

Set on the sheltered, gentle southern coast of Cornwall, Sea View International is a truly lovely site in a picture-postcard location. It is just outside the fishing village of Mevagissey and is half a mile from the nearest sandy beach. And, as its name suggests, the caravan park affords great views of the region’s coves and bays.
Moreover, the park has its own amenities within spacious and attractive grounds. Facilities include a large outdoor, heated swimming pool with sunbathing terraces, luxurious heated toilet buildings,
a campers’ kitchen and even a take-away food service.
Apart from the site’s own beautiful gardens, you are only minutes away from the fabulous Lost Gardens of Heligan. In addition, the world-famous Eden Project, with its futuristic ‘biomes’, is just a short drive away. The county demonstration gardens and Rural Studies Centre can be found at the nearby town of Probus.
When you’ve had enough of beaches
and gardens, maybe it’s time for a
spot of shopping? Truro has the best shopping centre in the area, but the town centre of St Austell is also worth a look, especially at weekends when it hosts the largest covered market in the UK.
After all this activity, retire to the calm
of Seaview where you can catch your
breath amid the site’s peaceful surroundings. This really is the perfect site for tranquil relaxation.19 Apr 2005

This is a beautiful site, and it is perfect for seeing all the sights and keeping the family busy during the holiday months. Sea View is kept wonderfully clean, and the surrounding gardens, filled with plants and flowers, provide a colourful atmosphere. The views, too, are fantastic, and as this park looks out over the ocean, it’s no surprise that it’s called Sea View.
The pitches are well-kept and very convenient. There is plenty of space around, and they are all level. All have electricity, and some offer the works: electricity, water, drainage and TV connection. The toilets and showers are also in very good order, and are exceptionally comfortable. They are heated and there are plenty of showers to go round, as well as baby-care facilities for added convenience. The dishwashing and hairdressing areas are always neat and tidy, and the laundry and kitchen areas are also very useful for keeping everything clean.
On the site itself you can hire bicycles, exercise the dog or have a go at some of the sports on offer. There are tennis, volleyball and badminton courts, a heated outdoor swimming pool and football pitch. Table tennis is also available, or you can practice your golfing skills on the putting green. The kids are also kept busy at Sea View. They can play a bit of crazy golf, or else there is a huge children’s playground for them to enjoy.
Overall, the site is very quiet and peaceful. There isn’t much night time activity, so it is a great holiday place for families looking for fun and games, and somewhere to relax.
