Nightclubs making you narky? Looking to have a restful break at a peaceful family-friendly Cornwall park where the only tunes you might hear will be from your own contented humming as you wander around the parkland? Head down to Poldown Camping and Caravan Park, in a peaceful and sunny little hollow, sheltered from wind and three miles from the nearest beach.

St Ives, Falmouth, Penzance, Mullion, The Lizard, Hayle, Gwithian and Godrevy are among the places under a 20-minute drive from this peaceful spot; on site, this is top stargazing land for spying night skies on clear eves.

Poldown keeps its number of pitches low, on two acres of parkland landscaped to have a garden feel, with plenty of open space among the flower beds for kickabouts and walks. The spacious and level pitches are restricted to only one or two per camping area, so you can hide away to your heart's content. There’s a playground on site, free hot showers, portable barbecues around the park and a covered dining area with table, chairs, barbecue and wood burner.

For food, Poldown has five child-friendly pubs serving meals within a three-mile radius; within two miles, there are a couple of supermarkets in Helston and restaurants, takeaways and a top fishmonger in the fishing village of Porthleven a couple of miles away. Closer to home there's a farm shop within half a mile.

If you're stuck for ideas on what to do off site (or, more likely, all of a flutter trying to narrow the many Cornwall options down), an extensive tourist information chalet is also on site; owners Gilles and Nelly are more than happy to point ditherers in the right direction too.
