Petite, peaceful and private, thanks to its cocoon of established trees, Summer Valley Touring Park is a haven for local birdlife, with a David Bellamy Conservation Award to prove it. The south-facing pitches have a lovely outlook over meadows and woodland, and there’s a smart service area, a children’s adventure playground and a food shop.
The site is small (three acres) and family owned, so holidaymakers can expect good service, a warm welcome and a relaxed environment. There’s a pub half a mile away in the village of Shortlanesend, or guests can bustle the two miles into Truro for lots more shops, restaurants and services.
Grab your bucket and spade and hit the miles of silky sand at Perranporth, just six miles away.
It’s less than half an hour to the following: Springfield Farm Park and Pony Centre, which on top of all the equine excitement, features a huge indoor play barn and a variety of outdoor fun; penguins, parrots and otter antics at the Paradise Park wildlife sanctuary; and the mega milking parlour, rides and slides at Dairyland Farm World.
The Flambards adventure park is about 30 minutes away too, or there’s more relaxed entertainment within the heavenly biomes of the Eden Project and at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Drama queens shouldn’t miss the opportunity to take in an open air performance in the jaw-dropping setting of the Minack Theatre.
In ye olden days, a naive chap taking a day trip to St Ives might find himself landed with seven wives, cats, sacks and more... Our advice is to avoid these traditional souvenirs and make a beeline for the wonderful Tate Gallery instead.
