- Family-run park half a mile halfway between Padstow and Newquay
- Half a mile from the South West Coast Path and Porthcothan Bay beach
- Animals, pony rides, playground, bar and pop-up food nights on site
Macdonald's Farm Touring and Camping is a small family-run park among Cornish countryside and hills, well placed for exploring this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty: it’s set back from the county's rugged coastline, half a mile from spectacular Porthcothan Bay on the north Cornish coast between Padstow and Newquay.
This is the place for you if you fancy sleeping under the Cornish stars, eating top-notch local food in the farm garden, riding ponies and meeting friendly animals (alpacas and rabbits live on site) – perhaps followed by a drink or two from the site's Sundowner Bar.
Spacious pitches are on grass, set among four small bays and have excellent far-reaching views. Site amenities include free showers and toilets, disabled facilities, washing-up facilities, a laundry room and baby changing.
Your booking entitles you to exclusive access to the garden, animals, playground and activities, plus the bar and pop-up food nights.
Open from 01/04/2021 to 04/10/2021

The nearest beach, Porthcothan, is a small bay popular with families and an excellent spot for bathing and surfing. It’s made up of a narrow inlet with cliffs, sand dunes, rockpools and a little stream running down to the sea all combine to make it an idyllic place for children.
The South West Coast Path is easily accessed from here too, for hikes to Newquay eight and a half miles to the south. By road, it’s five and a half miles from the farm to Padstow; a bus running from Padstow to Newquay stops outside the site if you’d rather leave the car behind.
Other outdoor activities close by include surfing at Watergate Bay within 15 minutes’ drive or zipping around St Eval Kart Circuit within five minutes’ drive. For food, try the local pub with its spectacular views over Porthcothan Bay, or the Rick Stein seafood restaurant at Padstow.
Heading towards the south coast, the Eden Project is 35 minutes’ drive away.
