Summer is fast approaching and the county of Cornwall is a popular destination for those people taking a vacation in England.
While Cornwall has plenty of charming B&Bs and apartments to stay in, it’s renowned for the array of high-quality camping sites dotted in and round tourist hotspots like Bude, Newquay, St Ives and Perranporth.
Camping is enjoying something of a revival at present as families look for cut-price vacations and with that in mind, here are three of the best campsites in Cornwall.
Budemeadows Touring Park
The picturesque seaside town of Bude often finds itself playing second fiddle to more popular places like Newquay and St Ives, but it’s just as charming and just as beautiful. The expanse of beach at Widemouth Bay makes it an ideal spot to soak up a few rays, swim in the sea and surf – and Budemeadows Touring Park is roughly a mile away. There’s a heated pool here, a smaller pool for the little ones to play in, a bar and a shop. An adventure play area will keep kids of all ages happy for hours at an end, making this an ideal spot for some rest and relaxation.
Newquay Holiday Park
Newquay is a real hub of activity during the summer months as surfers, families and revellers flock here in search of sun, sea and sand. It has a lively nightlife with plenty of pubs, bars and restaurants, so you might be thankful for the tranquil surroundings of Newquay Holiday Park if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in this region. It has an impressive three heated swimming pools as well a water slide, four adventure playgrounds, evening entertainment acts, pitch and putt and an on-site bar and grill.
Perran Sands Holiday Park
The beach at Perranporth is regarded as one of the best in Britain and is even home to the UK’s only bar on the beach if you need some refreshment after a hard day topping up your tan. Perran Sands Holiday Park has direct access to the beach and even has its own surf school if you want to learn how to ride the waves. There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools at Perran Sands Holiday Park if you need a break from the beach, a kids’ club and free family entertainment.
