- Small and peaceful site with a relaxed family feel
- Well-established parkland with plenty of open space
If your heart is set on some lounging around the Lizard (the peninsula at Cornwall’s most southerly point), hightail it down to Silver Sands Holiday Park, where you can expect a warm-blooded welcome and natural attractions on an epic scale.
Whether you plan on simply basking in the sun, or scampering about and getting your claws into Cornwall, this site is an excellent base. It’s just a half-mile skip down a pretty wooded path through the Lizard Nature Reserve to spectacular Kennack Sands, a fab family beach which allows dogs at its eastern end, and the area surrounding the park is full of hidden smugglers’ coves, scenic coastal villages and glorious beaches.
Silver Sands is a small and peaceful site with a relaxed family feel; canine visitors are welcome, provided they're properly supervised.

Aside from the beach within walking distance at Kennack Sands, Silver Sands Holiday Park is also close to one of the most stunning beach locations in Cornwall: Kynance Cove, whose turquoise waters could have been lifted from a postcard from the Med.
Water babies can make the most of the milder sea temperatures (thanks to the Gulf Stream) and try diving, surfing or windsurfing at any one of the tuition centres along the local coast. Porthkerris beach has a family-run dive centre that is particularly renowned for its shore dives, and boat dives to local wrecks or to swim with basking sharks; it also has a comprehensive range of PADI scuba instruction.
Walking enthusiasts can fill their boots with rambles along the stunning coastline to the Lizard point and beyond, or head inland, where a favourite expedition is along the banks of the Helford river, followed by a short hop on the ferry to the eponymous Ferry Boat Inn, for some well-earned refreshment overlooking the water.
There’s all kind of fishy business nearby for those angling for a bit of action: freshwater fishing at Garras, beach fishing or sea-fishing trips from one of the local ports.
Check out the iconic St Michael’s Mount or one of the other National Trust properties in the vicinity; garden groupies are spoilt for choice too, with many glorious green spots in the area including Glendurgan, Trevarno and Trebah Gardens, particularly spectacular in the earlier part of the year, when wild bluebells and primroses spring into bloom and there are breathtaking displays of camellias and azaleas.
The area around Silver Sands is stuffed with fab family attractions for all ages too, from the doe-eyed beauties at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek to the swashbuckling fun of Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum, the Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary or the engineered thrills of The Flambards Experience theme park.
