Looking for campsites in Cornwall? Then why not consider pitching at Padstow Touring Park.
The AA's Campsite Of The Year for the Southwest 2017
A panoramic view of the beautiful north Cornish countryside is just one of the attractions that draw visitors to this campsite. And because it is open all year round, guests can experience the ever-changing seasons and Padstow's microclimate, too.
Tents, motorhomes, campervans and caravans are welcome to pitch at Padstow Touring Park which has 150 pitches, of which 45 are hardstanding – electric hook-ups are available, too. And you'll struggle to fault the excellent on site facilities. There are two modern and heated amenities blocks, with hot showers, toilets, basins, baby changing areas, hairdryers and shaver points, plus a disabled/family wet room and a separate 'winterised' amenities block that has double glazing and underfloor heating. There is also a laundry room, two washing up areas, two ice pack freezers, two chemical disposal points, a motorhome service point, and Calor Gas and Campingaz sales. The on site shop sells groceries and camping kit, there's Wi-Fi and a children's play area, and a heated coffee lounge open all year.
Padstow Touring Park is also an award winning campsite having been awarded a five-pennant rating by the AA, an AA Gold Pennant Award and five stars from EnjoyEngland, as well as a gold David Bellamy award for conservation and the Gold Award winner 2015/16 in the Cornwall Tourism awards.
This is a dog friendly campsite. However, owners must be able to control their dogs, the dogs must be kept on their leads at all times and owners must clean up after their canine companions.
Another feature that's popular with guests who stay at this five-star campsite in Cornwall is the direct access via a footpath to Padstow, widely regarded as one of Cornwall's most attractive towns – and as a foodie heaven. It is a charming, historic fishing harbour town on the Camel Estuary and with seven local beaches, you can try a different one every day of the week!
If you want to venture further afield but leave the car or motorhome on site, you'll be pleased to learn that a bus route passes the campsite entrance, taking you to Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin – and from Padstow, you can take a connecting service to Newquay and other places. And you'll surely want to get out and about as there's so much to see on your motorhome tours and camping and caravan holidays in Cornwall.
If you'd rather drive to Newquay than take the bus, it's about half an hour from Padstow Touring Park, this renowned surfing destination and the famous Fistral Beach big draws for many who take holidays in Cornwall. Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium are also top attractions if you'd rather not don a wetsuit.
The Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Bodmin Moor are just waiting for you to explore. And despite Padstow Touring Park being on the north coast of Cornwall, the Eden Project, near St Austell on the south Cornish coast, is about a 40-/45-minute drive away.
