St Ives is known as Cornwall’s art corner, and we bet even the most matchstick men creators among you will be breaking out the watercolours once you see the views at Ayr Holiday Park, the only holiday park in St Ives itself and with stunning scenery of the town, local beaches and over to 30 miles of Cornish coastline.
Less than half a mile’s walk – suitable even for junior artistes – takes you to the beaches, harbour and attractions of award-winning St Ives: the Tate St Ives gallery, four beaches and fourteenth-century inn among very much more. If you have very very junior artistes (ie, finger-painting toddlers) or are feeling dizzy at climbing the hill to get back to camp, just jump on the bus from town that passes the site entrance; fares are about £1 and a taxi (for after the pub of an evening) should be around £4—5.
Back on site, set up your easel/camera almost anywhere for views you could sell on postcards, including over Portmeor Beach, the Tate Gallery, St Ives Bay and across it to lonely but gorgeous Godrevy Lighthouse. (It’s a very hard call, but the spot overlooking Portmeor and St Ives Bay is the one we’d pick to consume a sunset, a cider and a Cornish pasty.)
Amenity-wise, we suspect the Ayr Holiday Park team are engaged in a bet to match the facilities to the views: the pristinely clean shower block has underfloor heating, lullful music and surfaces so clean you could eat your Cornish pasty off them. Showers, hot water, hairdryers and shaver points are all free to use; the park also has a waste and water point for motorhomes, a food shop, dishwashing sinks and a chemical loo disposal point.
Ayr Holiday Park accepts bookings from family groups and couples only.
