Joanna has recently stayed at our refurbished Sandymouth Holiday Resort and has created a fantastic review for you, read her introduction and review below…


Freelance copywriting can bring many a surprise, and there was certainly one waiting when one of my clients put me in touch with Darwin Escapes. Owned by one of his good friends, my client holidays regularly at their sites and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. After giving a brief of what we were looking for on our half-term break, an email landed in my inbox asking if we would like to stay at Sandymouth Holiday Resort free of charge, in exchange for honest feedback on the recent redevelopment! You can imagine our response, read more below!


family fun at redeveloped sandymouth holiday resort – the doors are open!

The doors of the newly redeveloped Sandymouth Holiday Park are now officially open and visitors are flowing in to see the treat Darwin Escapes has created for them! Feedback from first-timers and returning guests is the same – what’s not to like?!

On arrival at Sandymouth Holiday Resort, you will be greeted by the friendly Darwin Escapes staff, given your keys in a quirky little tin suitcase and directed to your accommodation. Whatever type of accommodation you have booked, you will find the same level of quality throughout. Thoughtfully laid out and designed, furnishings and decor have been chosen to create a feeling of calm and relaxation to get you straight into the holiday mood.

That said, the redeveloped park has an offering for those that would like an added level of luxury. Situated on the edge of the park, the newly built lodges really are superb! Providing sea views that can be enjoyed either from inside through the full-length windows or from the expansive private terrace, each lodge is really a home from home. Beautiful furniture, high spec appliances and luxurious beds make booking into a lodge a definite way to indulge.

Once settled into your accommodation, the kids will be chomping at the bit to be let loose on the AMAZING pirate ship park! Rope ladders, slides, a zip line, swings…big or small, the kids will be off on their adventures. Pop on their swimming costumes and they can enjoy the adjacent splash zone too! Rainy day? Indoor soft play or the heated swimming pool to the rescue!

The grown ups in your party may be more attracted to the new stylish and contemporary bar, serving everything from Costa coffee to cool beers, good wine and favourite cocktails. A major part of the redevelopment, this has become the hub of the park where holidaymakers can enjoy a drink or sample some of the food prepared by a team of expert chefs.

Darwin Escapes has created the perfect compromise to avoid the park versus bar battle – an attractive outdoor seating area that lies between the two. Everyone’s happy!

The fun continues with children’s entertainment starting at 6pm. Dancing, magicians, a hug from Charlie bear and a game of the famous Sandymouth bingo will be sure to wear the kids out before bedtime. Much of the same (possibly minus Charlie Bear hugs!) follows into the evening.

If all that isn’t enough, Sandymouth Holiday Resort also has an on-site entertainments programme, Go Active. With a wealth of activities to choose from, you’ll be able to create memories that last a lifetime by signing up to archery, body-zorbing, fencing and much more. Even the little ones can take part with their own Go Junior programme.

Exploring off site leads you to the stunning Sandymouth Beach, situated just minutes from the resort. Visiting at hide-tide and low–tide makes you feel like you’re exploring two different places. High-tide will see you scrambling on the stones of a small pebble beach, while at low-tide you’ll be running on long swathes of sand and paddling in rock pools. The coast offers similar beaches and coves, while heading inland will take you to some of Cornwall’s finest areas of beauty.

Whether your stay is a few days or a fortnight, Darwin Escapes has created a park with a range of facilities in a fantastic location that will allow you to relax and refresh in whichever way you choose. Book your Sandymouth Holiday Resort holiday today!
