General

  • Manicured pitches surrounded by greenery
  • Spotless amenities including power showers and wetsuit/drying area
  • Playground and dog-walking area

Small but perfectly formed, the Laurels Holiday Park offers manicured grassy pitches surrounded by pretty greenery and flowers to give guests a bit of extra privacy.

The essential facilities are impeccably maintained: there’s free hot water in the washing up area and power showers, plus hairdryers, a laundry with tumble dryer and free ironing kit, and a shared fridge and freezer. There’s even a special area for washing and drying wetsuits, which gets regular use given the excellent surfing and watersports nearby...

The Laurels has a small on-site shop stocking the essentials, ice creams, sweets and drinks. Sausages, bacon and eggs from the local butcher are stocked in peak season, and fresh bread, pastries and scones are delivered daily from a local bakery.

Pint-sized visitors can mess about on the boat in the playground, which is well-equipped with climbing frames, swings and a large trampoline, plus plenty of space for ball games. The site is also Fido-friendly, with a dedicated area for dogwalking.

Please note

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Bookings can only be accepted from families or couples where the named hirer is over 21 and is part of the holiday party.

Campfires must be in a self-contained firepit raised off the ground and a safe distance away from tents, caravans and awnings etc

    Very clean, and nicely laid out campsite. Pitches were placed on the board and made extremely clear for late comers. No mucking around in the evening when raining! The owners were polite and helpful. Good facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Men’s toilets needed checking more often. Wasn’t clean at times.

From the manager...

Thanks for the great score! And saying the site was very clean however it did make us laugh about the toilets - they are mini cleaned 4 times a day, deep cleaned once a day and checked every hour from 6am through to 10 pm - I can clean the toilets and one person can go in after and make a mess. If it is raining the floors can get mucky but there is nothing I can do about that aside from standing there all day with a mop and handing out plastic covers for people to put over their shoes ( completely unrealistic)! Really glad you enjoyed your nights stay and hope to see you again...Best Wishes....Sarah and Jo

  • Liked: 

    A well looked after and friendly campsite. Everything is easily accessible and well thought out. The toilets and showers were always immaculate. We particularly enjoyed the powerful hot showers! In a great location, Padstow only a few miles away. We had a non-electric pitch but we were able to make use of the communal fridge & freezer which was really helpful. I’d absolutely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends and family as a good value and well run base for a relaxing Cornish holiday.

From the manager...

Thank you for this amazing review! Really glad you enjoyed our fantastic showers and found the toilet blocks immaculately kept. We look forward to your return - thankyou for recommending us to your friends and family!

Directions


The Laurels is situated between Wadebridge (2 ¾ miles) and Padstow (5 ¾ miles), off the A389 Padstow Road at its junction with the A39.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The Laurels is two miles from the riverside market town of Wadebridge (the bus stops right outside the site), where guests will find good eating and shopping.

A little further up the road is Padstow, which has TV chef Rick Stein’s famously fabulous seafood restaurants and cookery school as well as some fine surfing beaches. Boardmasters can also find ripping fun at nearby Polzeath, and the world famous waves of Newquay are only 15 miles away.

Fans of the Doc Martin TV series should visit the nearby fishing village of Port Isaac to see the doc’s cottage and many other pretty 'Portwenn' locations.

This being Cornwall, there are oodles of interesting things to see and do - too many to list here, but to start you off: it’s only a short drive to the legendary Tintagel Castle, the fascinating biospheres of the Eden Project, or the fishing village of Boscastle.

Guests could also make a day trip to Lands End (perhaps combined with a walk around the attractive harbour town of Penzance), to the National Maritime Museum and dockyards at Falmouth, or to St. Ives, to explore the colourful harbour and art deco splendour of the Tate Gallery.

Must see

  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (2.5 miles)
  • Rock Beach (3.5 miles)
  • Newquay Zoo (10.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps (6.7 miles)
  • Trerice (11.0 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
