If you're heading for your camping and caravan holidays in Cornwall, why not try this family-friendly and family-focused campsite.
Tristram Camping Park is a beautiful holiday destination offering gently sloping pitches that overlook the local beach and out to sea. The campsite welcomes tents, motorhomes and touring caravans, as well as having a small number of holiday homes available for rent. It is a great location for a relaxing break by the sea.
This campsite has tonnes of open space for younger guests to run around in, as well as easy access to the beach, plus it is well fenced so children can play outside in complete safety. On site facilities include a washblock and a laundrette, while there is a licenced restaurant adjoining the park serving great food and drinks, much of which has been sourced from the local area – and it will give you a night off cooking and washing up!
Given the popularity of this part of Cornwall among surfers, this camping park operates a number of surf hire outlets, with one at the park itself, another on the nearby beach and another in the nearest village, Polzeath. In addition to the surf shop, Polzeath has a number of great craft and gift shops, as well as convenience stores for buying groceries and camping essentials, and plenty of places to get something to eat and drink.
There are lots of things to do in Cornwall, so whatever you're into, you'll find something to do. Surfing paradise Newquay is less than an hour from Tristram Camping Park by car with the famous Fistral Beach. Foodie haven Padstow is only about 30 minutes away, and while there why not visit Prideaux Place, a beautiful Elizabethan manor house on the outskirts of the town or the National Lobster Hatchery. Wadebridge is also just 20 minutes away.
Of course, you've got all of Cornwall at your disposal. The world famous and award winning Eden Project attraction is just a 30-minute drive away, and features a range of exhibitions and hosts events throughout the year – it's a super day out for the kids. And visit The Lost Gardens of Heligan, too.
The Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is on your doorstep when pitched at Tristram Camping Park, wooded valleys, hidden creaks and the magnificent coastline there and waiting to be explored. Bodmin Moor is a little further afield, but still within reach, ripe for discovering on foot, on a bike or maybe on horseback. Or how about a day out at the historic Bodmin Jail, just over a half hour drive from this campsite. Or maybe you'd prefer Lanhydrock House, a grand and beautiful country house with spectacular landscaped gardens that is now owned by the National Trust, set in 450 acres of stunning Cornish countryside.
Whatever you do, don't say farewell to this county until you've enjoyed a cream tea and a Cornish pasty – staples on any motorhome tour, camping or caravan holiday in Cornwall.
