Time for relaxation

General

  • Secluded, peaceful park in a rural setting a few miles from Praa Sands
  • Within 30 minutes' drive of Land's End, the Eden Project and Falmouth
  • Two-acre dog exercise area, nature trail, games field and play barn

Avoid the madding crowds on your summer sojourn to Cornwall and stay at this green, secluded and peaceful park instead: Lower Polladras Touring Park has had previous guests waxing lyrical about its peace, its quiet, its lovely location and its very friendly owners Carole and Graham.

The park is in a rural setting four miles from the beaches of Cornwall’s south coast and within easy reach of coastal and countryside walks. It’s in a top spot too for south-west Cornwall explores with Penzance, the Lizard Peninsula and Land’s End no more than half an hour’s drive away. Yet blissful peace will always be yours when you potter back to pitch, as Lower Polladras is set over four acres and has no noisy bar, clubhouse or evening entertainment.

Carole and Graham are environmentally minded and are always improving the park to make it as green and sustainable as possible: low wattage bulbs are used throughout and recycling is paramount. Heaps of info is displayed about non-car ways of getting around the local area, in the form of bus timetables on display and details of walks from the park given to all guests, and the well thought-out nature trail leads to a games field with play barn, football goals and a climbing frame to wrestle the kids away from their consoles.

Dogs are welcome, and the two-acre exercise area on the edge of the park should keep Fido pretty stress-free too...

Directions

Local attractions

Within half an hour or less you’ll reach most of the main highlights of south-west Cornwall as well as many beyond: the Eden Project, Flambards Theme Park, St Ives, Falmouth and the gardens of Glendurgan, Trebah and Trewithian are all close by, and the town of Helston, Cornwall’s second oldest (after Marazion), is three miles from the park.

Stunning beaches are all around: Praa Sands 10 minutes’ drive away; Sennen Cove and its consistent waves for surf, and Porthleven, Pollurian and Mullion for fishing, more watersporting and rockpooling.

From Porthkerris beach, towards Falmouth, you can learn to dive and look for the shore’s shipwrecks, while Kennack Sands and Kynance towards the Lizard are the ones to take the paintbox to. Newquay and the famed surf beaches of Cornwall’s north coast are within seven miles.

For walkies, take to the countryside around Lower Polladras using the park guides, or have some gorgeously scenic strolls along the South West Coast Path to Mullion, Marazion, Mousehole or Penzance.

On the north coast, try the eight-mile hike from Portreath to Godrevy, stopping off for blackberry ice cream or apple cake and clotted cream at the famed Hells Mouth café along the way.
