self catering holidays in Cornwall

We have three holiday parks in Cornwall and each has a very unique feel to it. One is Mullion Cove Coastal Retreat which is a 5 star resort which offers unrivaled scenery of the surrounding coastal region. This resort is perfect for romantic breaks with private hot tubs available with many of our lodges where you can admire the stunning scenery.

Another of our 5 star rated holiday parks in Cornwall is Piran Meadows Resort which is ideal for family holidays in the region. One of the features which really helps this resort stand out from the competition is the on-site facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, outdoor splash zone, gymnasium, pool tables, bowling alley and golf simulator. We also have a cram-packed Go Active programme in place for people of all ages, featuring activities such as fencing, body-zorbing and archery so you are unlikely to ever get bored.

If you are looking for traditional family holidays at a static caravan park, then you should consider Sandymouth Holiday Resort which is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the coast of Sandymouth. There is plenty to keep the whole family entertained with the resort in close proximity to glorious Sandymouth Beach. We also have a plethora of facilities to take advantage of on park including a football field, crazy golf, indoor swimming pool and kids will also be entertained at our Black Pearl Adventure Park.
