General

  • Beach heaven for fans of sand and saltwater
  • Park or pitch up across 27 acres of parkland
  • Clean on-site amenities and a well-stocked licensed shop

'Seven Bays for Seven Days' is the tempting proposition at Atlantic Bays Holiday Park near Padstow, aka Beach Heaven. Whether you’re into surfing, rockpooling or sand castles, you’ll be made up with the sandtastic choice of beaches within a couple of miles of this serene, green site.

There are grassy pitches in a range of sizes for tents, with electric hook-ups available, plus great new hardstandings for tourers, RVs and campervans, either fully serviced or simply with electricity - spread across 27 acres of parkland.

All the necessities in life are perfectly taken care of via a high-spec amenities block complete with hairdryers and ironing boards, a new laundry room and a well-stocked licensed shop. There's also a games room with slots, a pool table open in the evenings and a family bar open every weekend and all summer season.

When the kids aren't at the beach, they'll love burning off some energy in the on-site play area, while in high season you can pre-order your newspapers at reception to ensure you miss nothing while you're away.

Resolve dislikes (Toilets/shop/wifi/broken stuff) to sort please. 16/08/2017

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Good helpful staff - in shop, restaurant, bar, office.

    Disliked: 

    1. Not enough toilets/showers for amount of people plus often lacking loo rolls, - add extra toilet /shower block and check regularly in high season especially.
    2. Very basic shop with not enough ice for non-electric pitch tent folk - told they would get more but did not - expand and keep stocks up.
    3. Toilet hand dryers broken both in club house and single toilet block - check regularly please.
    4. WiFi virtually non existent - don't advertise if you can't deliver
    5. Drafty bar room - just add auto close device.
    6. Showers need to run longer before going off - change mechanical timer device to be longer running.
    7. Very windswept site - needs more trees/bushes - I believe you are growing some so this may sort it.
    8. Puddings microwaved to death - chef please take note.
    9. Could do with a swimming pool - maybe along with the "Clubhouse refurbishment coming soon" then add a pool.

  • Liked: 

    Staff were really friendly and helpful.
    The site and all facilities were always very clean. Plentiful hot water for showers and washing up.
    Good facilities - washer, dryer, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, fridge/freezer. (most incurred extra charge)
    Restaurant was good. Tasty food, not too pricey - lovely staff.
    I noticed that some trees and shrubs had been planted. In a few years these will provide shade/shelter from the wind and break up some of the "bleakness" of the site - good planning!

    Disliked: 

    Pitches a little cramped/close together. I couldn't leave my car or trailer next to my tent as it would have prevented the campers behind me getting their car in and out.

Local attractions

Those who like to stay within walking distance can make merry in St Merryn, just a mile from Atlantic Bays Holiday Park, home to a handful of pubs and restaurants, plus a chippie and various shops. The site staff will be happy to help with restaurant reservations if needed.

Gourmets, however, will want to make a beeline for the fishing village of Padstow three miles away, famous for its concentration of Rick Stein eateries and shops, and a pretty place to visit to boot.

If you want to take up the 'Seven Bays for Seven Days' challenge, you’ll be ticking off some of Cornwall’s best family beaches, such as Harlyn Bay and Porthcothan Beach, but if the weather’s not up to much, there’s no shortage of fun things to do for all ages in nearby Newquay and beyond.

The popular Crealy Great Adventure Park is only a couple of miles away too, and has an huge indoor area for tots to teens on top of all the outdoor thrills and spills.

Must see

  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (2.5 miles)
  • Rock Beach (3.7 miles)
  • Newquay Zoo (7.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps (2.9 miles)
