For romantic breaks and quiet family holidays in Cornwall, try South Winds Camping Park, a beautiful campsite found a mile outside the charming North Cornwall village of Polzeath. The park is set back from the coast, ensuring guests enjoy a quiet stay in a picturesque part of Cornwall. The site welcomes motorhomes, touring caravans and tents. There are also some seasonal pitches available for you if you would like to escape to South Winds Camping Park for as many holidays and short breaks as possible, all year long.
South Winds Camping Park operates a strict 'couples and families only' policy to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of all guests.
The pitches at South Winds are set across three sizeable camping fields, and guests can enjoy amazing views of both the Cornwall countryside as well as out towards the sea. Facilities offered at the park include shower and toilet facilities, a laundrette, and washing up points. The most relaxing way to reach the nearest beach, at Polzeath, is to set off with your picnic for a short 20-minute walk along a quiet country road.
Right next door to the campsite, you will find the Carruan Farm Centre. This is a great place for a family day out, because children can enjoy soft play, go karts, and a pirate ship for climbing and playing on. You can also introduce your little ones to the farm animals, which are domesticated enough for them to meet and interact with. Best of all, Carruan Farm Centre also has a family restaurant and a wonderful shop, so this is a fantastic place to stock up on holiday essentials and great tasting local produce that you can easily cook into tasty and simple meals in your tent, motorhome or caravan.
Surfing holidays in Cornwall are world famous and this campsite makes an ideal base for the best surfing beaches. If you would like to go surfing, whether you are an experienced watersports fan or just fancy trying to surf for the first time, you can pick up surfing gear at Ann’s Cottage Surf Shop. There is an outlet in the village as well as on Polzeath Beach.
Shopping for souvenirs and gifts is one of the best holiday pleasures for many people and the good news is that lovely Polzeath has a number of quaint shops as well as places to eat and drink. This is a great place to spend a few hours even if you aren’t planning on heading down to the beach.
Visit Padstow, Wadebridge and other towns in the surrounding area to taste true Cornish cuisine. Padstow and Wadebridge are well known for their fresh seafood restaurants as well as their great beaches. You can get to both of these towns by car, along with the other quirky towns found on the coast as well as inland throughout the countryside. A ferry also operates from Polzeath, which takes tourists to Padstow, on a regular basis.
Guests love staying at South Winds Camping Park as it is an ideal location for exploring the rest of Cornwall. Many choose to drive to Land’s End to spend time at the beach and maybe enjoy a romantic stroll while watching the sunset over the Atlantic. If you love exotic plants, world cuisine and a chance to climb into the canopy of a tropical forest, visit the Eden Project, which is around a 30 minute drive away. Since a large part of the Eden Project is housed within its geodomes in a sheltered former quarry, this makes an excellent place for a family day out if the weather turns wet or cold. It's not cheap, but it's certainly educational and the food and drink sold there is delicious.
If you love active pursuits in the outoors, you must visit Dartmoor National Park. This is the place for you if you love horse riding, hill walking or climbing. Whether you are just planning to explore the open countryside and woodland or take part in organised pursuits, Dartmoor offers plenty of places to visit and things to do.
There are great transport links throughout Cornwall, so you might be surprised to find that you can visit Plymouth and Exeter, two cities filled with leisure and entertainment facilities as well as cultural attractions. Both cities would make excellent days out for families staying at South Winds Camping Park in North Cornwall.
