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.

    This was our 1st outing in our new to us caravan, didn't have a clue about caravaning but needn't have worried, the site was booked last minute over the phone & all went through with no problems by a lovely lady from the park, the warmth & welcome was extended upon arrival, a big site which was amazingly clean & well thought out, we were escorted onto our pitch & shown all the facilities, again the cleanliness of the toilets & shower blocks were excellent. Once we were set up the friendliness of not only the staff but other campers were amazing, being virgin caravanners we were unsure of how the awning went up when our neighbour came over & within 5 mins happy days all was done. We were a little apprehensive about noise in the evening but again needn't have worried, all the other campers were very respectful. The camp also accommodated our little dog & even had a dedicated dog walk path. To top off our stay it was the hottest August bank holiday, so couldn't have asked for a better long weekend, close enough for Padstow & Newquay & easy enough to find, well signposted. As you can tell absolutely loved it. Would've given 4.5 stars as there's always room for improvement & our only negative was the food.

    Disliked: 

    Food, looking for an evening snack on a Sunday & it only looked like you could get either a Sunday roast or a bowl of chips, I maybe wrong? but the bar staff were rushed off there feet & couldn't see any waiting staff. Only saw a child's menu with side orders.

Great location, clean facilities, big pitches for tents! 28/08/2017

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

    The tent site was really spaced out which was really nice that you weren't too close to anyone else. The pitches were flat and there was loads of room. The toilets and showers were always clean. The dish washing room was really handy and always clean. The on site shop was useful for the things we ran out of i.e. Milk, bread, bacon. The campsite was about a 10 minute drive from Harlyn Bay which is a stunning beach with loads of activities to do. About 15 minute drive from Padstow itself.

    Disliked: 

    On the first night there were a lot of kids running round our tent late at night which was annoying when trying to sleep; but this only happened the one night. The toilets were a little walk away from the tent field which was a pain in the middle of the night. There was no shortcut through to get to them. Very minor niggly things though. We really enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely come back to this campsite again.

    The camp site was very clean and tidy. All the staff where very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    The tent area was right by a noisy road and quite a walk for the toilets which we had to step over a small fence. The whole camp site was a bit soulless.

Local attractions

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.
