Enquire Now You enquired

Carlyon Bay Touring Park is an award-winning, five-star caravan park near St Austell in south Cornwall. In fact, back in 2006, this campsite was a regional winner in Caravan Sitefinder's sister brand Practical Caravan's Top 100 Sites Guide.

Carlyon Bay Touring Park is open from early April until late September every year. This park is ideally situated for exploring all of Cornwall, both around the coastline and further inland.
A wide selection of accommodation options are available for guests staying at the park.

Tents, touring caravans and motorhomes can all be accommodated at this campsite. The most basic pitch available is a grass pitch without an electric hook-up. The highest level of pitch is a grass and hardstanding combination pitch, fully serviced with electric, water and drainage hook-ups. A variety of different pitches are available between those two pitch types, so guests can tailor their pitch based on exactly what they need.

Facilities available at Carlyon Bay Touring Park include a heated shower and amenities block, and dishwashing and laundry facilities, while a fully licenced shop is great for picking up groceries, luxuries, and any holiday essentials, including Calor Gas and Camping Gaz. Free Wi-Fi is also available.

There is plenty to do at Carlyon Bay Touring Park to ensure guests never get bored during their stay. The swimming and paddling pools at this campsite are always popular, while there are also children’s playgrounds, a specially designated 'kiddies corner' for games and activities, table tennis, crazy golf, grass tennis courts, pool tables and much more. Those looking to organise their own pursuits can take their pick from the park’s open spaces.

The on-site country kitchen serves food throughout the day and also offers a takeaway option. In addition, on selected nights of the week live entertainment is also provided, which may range from clowns and jugglers to the local brass band.

The park's woodland surroundings mean there are plenty of opportunities for families to enjoy the beautiful outdoors when you visit Cornwall on your holidays and stay at Carlyon Bay Touring Park. Walks into the woods or across the countryside are always popular, while those looking to explore the coast can join the South West Coast Path National Trail from Carlyon Bay.

Carlyon Bay is a bay and a trio of beaches, and this campsite is a mere 10-minute drive from the town of St Austell. Here you can take a tour around the St Austell Brewery or maybe visit the world famous Eden Project, which is a 10-minute drive from this campsite and sits to the north east of St Austell – it's a super day out for the whole family.

For many people heading for their motorhome, camping and caravan holidays in Cornwall, one of the biggest draws is surfing and arguably the surfing capital of the county, Newquay, is merely a 40-minute drive from this campsite. As is foodie haven Padstow, which is famous for its connections with TV chef Rick Stein. The city of Truro with its stunning cathedral is also worth a trip and is also around 40 minutes by car from this campsite.

This is Riviera Cornwall with its hint of the Mediterranean where spring comes early and autumn lingers late giving Cornwall the highest mean temperature in the U.K. Palm trees and pine woods, old English oak and elegant beech trees together with dazzling hanging baskets and flower displays won the park the St. Austell in Bloom trophy for several years.

The fabulous Eden Project just 2 and a half miles away and advance tickets are available at the Park reception. The Carlyon Bay Caravan and Camping Park is an ideal base from which to enjoy all the delights of the surrounding area, but the park also caters for its guests with on-site attractions.

There are exciting children's playgrounds and kiddies' corner for the younger ones while older youngsters can divert themselves in the swimming pool or with table tennis, pool, badminton, crazy golf, volleyball or recreation and television room.

Less than a 10 minute walk away, the local beach now has improved stepped access. The steps have been made even, are well lit and have handrails. The Coliseum complex at the back of the beach has been fenced off, so upon entering the beach via the new steps you will be guided past the complex along a well defined path to the sands.

Near The Eden Project and the historic port of Charlestown.
