There probably isn’t enough room on the mantelpiece for all the awards heaped on Dolbeare Park. Apart from all its green creds and bling, this Saltash site is the place to come to if you want a traditional, laid back kind of holiday – it’s family-centred, there’s no bar or clubhouse (although you can buy scrummy Cornish scrumpy, wine and beer in the park off-licence), and summer events include barbecues, cricket, rounders, archery, boules and squaring up on the giant outdoor chess board or over the giant Connect4. You might even see a few rabbits hopping about in the evenings...
Amenities at Dolbeare are of the highest standards – the immaculate shower block has underfloor heating, family washrooms, up-to-date disabled facilities, hair dryers and a ladies’ make-up area with an electric point for hair straighteners. The shop on site sells freshly baked bread and local produce, and if you’re too relaxed even to make a sandwich there’s a takeway too. Tuck into the one of the yummy bacon baguettes while browsing through the Dolbeare information centre where there are maps and guides on Devon and Cornwall, as well as the park’s own guides on essential topics such as where to eat, where to walk and the local beaches.
Cornwall gets busy in the summer, but you wouldn’t know it from this peaceful corner which most visitors whizz past without stopping...the only problem will be trying to narrow down what to do from the tons of active and relaxing things on offer in this almost forgotten corner of the south-east. The Rame Peninsula is a must, especially Cawsand and Kingsand and walking around the coastal path, and surfers should take their boards to the beautiful beaches of Whitsand Bay. The area also has some excellent diving such as Scylla at Whitsand Bay, and golfers can tee off too at St Mellion just a few miles away from the park.
Canny campers can go tree surfing and off-road mountain biking up in the Tamar Valley, quarry jump at nearby Adrenalin Quarry, canoe the Tamar River with Canoe Tamar, or take the Plym Trail or Camel Trail cycle paths for family exploring.
History and culture are abundant too, with several National Trust properties in the area as well as other cultural spots including Anthony House and Gardens, famous for Alice in Wonderland; Saltram House featured in Sense and Sensibility and the former home of Sir Francis Drake, Buckland Abbey.
Also on the very long must-do list is a trip around Devon to take in highlights including Bigbury on Sea, walking on Dartmoor or just relaxing with a drink at the Noss Mayo pubs. Plymouth shouldn’t be missed either, with the largest aquarium in the UK, a huge outdoor swimming pool and the Life Centre, with massive indoor pool, climbing centre, bowling, children's activities and a family activity centre.
Plymouth is also the spot for some fantastic food and restaurants, with full-on foodies also having the option to try the luscious location and food at The View restaurant, featured on Caroline Quentin's Cornwall and only 20 minutes from Dolbeare.

We are quick and easy to get to - take the M5 and A38 dual carriageway all the way up to the roundabout at Saltash. Then it's just 4 miles (with overtaking lanes) to Dolbeare Park.
Take the A38 to Landrake (between Saltash and Liskeard) and turn north next to the bright blue pedestrian footbridge across the A38, signposted to Dolbeare Park and to Blunts. Then follow our signs for 3/4 mile, keeping to the left at the fork, and you will find us on the right.

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
