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.

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch had a lot of road noise from the very busy road that runs in front. We had booked for 4 nights but only stayed 2. We did not purchase electric as the only thing we needed to use it for was to charge a mobile phone. We asked how we could charge as there are no facilities anywhere on site to plug in anything, be it hairdryer, own iron everything is plus. They said we could pay 50p for charging the mobile.
    When leaving early I was asked is everything was ok, I said about the busy road and immediate response was "well that is not our fault" we could of put you in a different pitch. I do take a small amount of responsibility as next time I will check out site first before staying.

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)
  • Trerice (8.9 miles)
