Located midway between the scenic delights of St Ives and St Agnes, it’s no surprise that this regular entry into our Top 100 should take the top spot this year.
Tehidy is in a fantastic position, from which guests can easily visit the very best of Cornwall’s many lovely towns and beaches, and offers excellent access to several great cycle routes, gardens and historic sites.
The park sits in a tranquil wooded valley and is packed with facilities for the whole family to enjoy. There’s a children’s play area, games room, park shop and reception, free Wi-Fi across the entire site, a launderette and a disabled and family room.
The attention to detail continues throughout, with picnic benches, clothes-dryers, barbecue points with slabs and picnic benches by each pitch, and a cooking shelter for campers and glampers in the outer field.
The owners are also clearly very keen to preserve the beauty of the natural environment in the park, and a number of the site’s conservation and grounds management projects have been recognised with the top Gold award status. These include the Honey Bee Pledge award (which recognises the efforts made to provide protection, food, water and shelter for honey bees) and several David Bellamy Conservation awards. Note that this campsite does not allow pets.
“Wildlife and birdsong on the campsite – and some lovely walks.”
In a nutshell: Natural wonder, with the best of Cornwall right on your doorstep.
Three miles away on the north coast is Porthtowan Beach, perfect for families and surfers
