Ayr Holiday Park is a stunning family holiday destination in the popular Cornish town of St Ives.
The park is open all throughout the year, and welcomes guests with motorhomes, touring caravans, campervans and tents. There is also a range of accommodation sited at the park available for guests to hire, including luxurious caravans, flats and apartments.
Serviced pitches are available for guests requiring them. The park also has a modern amenities block with showers and toilets, while a laundrette, a chemical waste disposal point and a washing up area are among the other facilities offered for guests to use throughout their stay.
There is an outdoor children’s play area too, as well as a games room for keeping the whole family entertained, no matter the weather. The on-site café and restaurant is open all through the day and serves a great selection of foods and drinks. Guests preferring to self-cater can stock up at the on-site store, where they can also exchange gas cylinders if necessary.
Ayr Holiday Park is the only holiday park to actually be within St Ives itself, and guests staying at the site can enjoy incredible views overlooking the bay and the main beach in town. And when it’s time to head out and explore there is plenty for guests to see and do on their camping and caravan holidays in Cornwall.
For many, their first port of call is St Ives itself, a wonderful town with something for everyone. The town is most well known as being a cultural centre and, unsurprisingly, Tate St Ives is one of the most popular attractions in the town, however there are also some great shops along with cafés, bars and restaurants. St Ives also has plenty of open space to explore and parks for the kids, while of course the beach is on your doorstep.
All this is within walking distance and if you love walking, you could pick up the South West Coast Path which passes through St Ives. Follow it for miles and enjoy discovering the dramatic Cornish coastline for yourself.
If you want to venture further afield when you visit Cornwall, the town of Penzance is around 20 minutes from Ayr Holiday Park by car, on the south coast. Also a 20-minute drive away along the coast on the other side of St Ives Bay is Gwithian, another beautiful destination with a beach that is very popular – and for good reason.
A 40-minute drive from this campsite you can discover the capital of Cornwall. Yes, you can visit Truro, which is also the most southerly city on mainland Britain and has a striking cathedral.
Falmouth is also under an hour's drive from this holiday park and if you're still not tired of beaches, head to Maenporth Beach, just to the south of the town. While in this area you could also take in the Glendurgan Garden or maybe the Trebah Gardens, tour Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, or just enjoy walking along the seafront promenade, maybe stopping for a bite to eat or something to drink.
So get the best of Cornwall on your holidays and stay at Ayr Holiday Park.

This is a great campsite! The toilets and showers are clean and modern and free to use. You can see St Ives bay from the campite and the view out to sea is amazing.
We have been back for several years and have a great time every year, it was only this year that we went to another part of Cornwall and realised what a great campsite Ayr is!
