Things to do in Cornwall - Siblyback Lake

Looking to combine your holiday with the many water sport opportunities Cornwall has to offer? Siblyback, Stithians and Tamar Lakes offer a whole host of actives - including windsurfing, canoeing and sailing - only metres from your tent entrance! Whilst Holywell Bay and Crantock Beach Holiday Park are just steps from the stunning north Cornish coast, home to a great range of surf schools ready to test your nerve… and balance!

Crantock 2

The Lizard Peninsular features rare geology, stunning fishing villages and Britain’s most southerly point, alongside a range of family friendly campsites. Head to Mullion Holiday Park where you’ll find a wide choice of accommodation and facilities, including pirate-themed crazy golf and a heated outdoor pool. Close by to Kennack Sands beach is Sea Acres Holiday Park - only 500 metres from the sandy shore and with scuba-diving instructors on site, you can really make the most of this waterside location.

Self Catering Cornwall - Restronguet Barton

Looking for a campsite that offers true peace and tranquillity? Surrounded by stunning countryside in a rural location overlooking the Fal Estuary, you’ll find Restronguet Barton. Just minutes from beautiful walks on the South West Coastal Path and the pretty village of Mylor Bridge – it’s a truly idyllic place to stay in Cornwall. Or head over to Widemouth Fields near Bude - surrounded by glorious countryside and only half a mile from the inviting golden sands of Widemouth Bay, it offers a quiet stay, perfect for couples and young families.


If you’re serious about green tourism, Melody Farm Shepard’s Huts located in the heart of Cornwall offer eco-friendly accommodation that runs on electricity generated on site and utilises recycled materials. Wooda Farm on the north coast has been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Award for Conservation and is a haven for wildlife with boxes of owls, bats and birds throughout the site.
