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.

Lovely little site and helpful owners. 03/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Gemma J. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch (XL)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The play area was wonderful and kept our children busy and happy while we set up/packed away! The site is very well kept and toilets etc were always clean and tidy. The utility room was good too, fridges and microwave etc available to use free of charge. Easy access to Padstow and Newquay etc so a good location.

    Disliked: 

    Our extra large pitch only just fitted our tent and car in, which meant we were very close to neighbours and that in turn meant we got very little sleep as we had people three foot away drinking and being loud until 11:30 two of the nights. We heard one family be asked to quieten down on our first night by site owners after someone else had complained but sadly they carried on where they left off the following night! Noise is expected but the close proximity of other pitches made it rather intrusive.

From the manager...

Thanks so much for your review! We are sorry you were kept up by noisy neighbours - we do stipulate dead quiet after 11pm but usually most people are respectful of others and quieten down when we close the playpark at 9pm.
We were made aware of the noise the first night and got out of bed to speak with them but did not have any communication to us that they were being loud the 2nd night. If we had known again we could have spoken to them.
We are glad the children were kept entertained in the playpark and that you found all our facilities clean and tidy.
Best Wishes

    Really friendly staff and very helpful with spotless facilities. Jo & Sarah work really hard to maintain standards on site and keep it looking pleasant.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch a little tight with car, but okay once you get to grips with it. Can be a bit noisy at night with traffic as off A39 and our pitch was close to road.

Thankyou so much! We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you will return!

    Very nice campsite, really clean and well organised.

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)
