  • Quiet family-run park in the grounds of a north Cornwall hotel
  • A 15-minute drive to Port Isaac or the edge of Bodmin Moor
  • Outdoor swimming pool, games room and bar
Checking out spots to stay between the north Cornwall coast and Bodmin Moor? Then it might be time to check in at Lanarth Hotel and Caravan Park, a family-run site in St Kew Highway, just off the A39. This spacious park has 10 acres of peaceful gardens to relax in, plus nicely level plots that are easy to access (so no need to stress about squeezing down those pesky West Country lanes). You also get use of the hotel's well-maintained facilities, including a games room with pool tables, a cosy fully licensed bar and an open-air pool between late May and mid-September. Holidaymakers also have a purpose-built toilet and shower block a short walk away from the pitches. There's a pub that serves hot food, a Cornish pasty shop and a hairdresser's a short distance away in the village, while those who need to stock up on groceries have supermarkets in Wadebridge (10 minutes' drive), which is also a stop-off point on the gorgeous Camel Trail. Bringing a bike here (or hiring one in town) opens up 18 miles of almost totally traffic-free vistas, so make sure to earmark a day for some relaxed backcountry pedalling. After days of exploring, once back at base you could chill around a barbecue, order a nightcap at the bar or simply take advantage of the low levels of light pollution and gaze up at the night sky…

Electric optional grass motorhome pitch

Liked: Its quiet washroom block was good and clean. We were in a motorhome which had a couple of pitches the rest is caravans and tents, not really for motorhomes there was an Elsan . We took the van out to tintagel good car park there . There are a lot of peacocks.

Disliked: You would need a car we had electric bikes which got us to port issac the taxi wanted 33.00 each way ! It is dangerous to walk to farm shop as no pavement on busy road.

Local attractions

Almost opposite the site is Saint Kew Golf Course (two minutes' drive), a 4550-yard-long course with a driving range that welcomes both adult and junior players. (If your golf isn't up to much, there's also a farm shop and cosy café next door.) For other active jaunts, you could feel the wind in your hair by walking on the splendid South West Coast Path (15 minutes) or lope over rugged Bodmin Moor (15 minutes), perhaps venturing out to famed 18th-century smuggling haunt Jamaica Inn (30 minutes). For beaches, you could launch a trip to Newquay (30 minutes), where a mixture of sandy shores, surf culture and classic arcades pretty much guarantees good times all round. There's also an assortment of more low-key beach spots like Polzeath (20 minutes), Harlyn (25 minutes) and, if you fancy sampling the south coast, Lantic Bay (50 minutes). Inspired by the site's leafy layout? The Eden Project (30 minutes) and similarly world-class gardens like The Lost Gardens Heligan (45 minutes) are within easy reach. Finally, there's potential for day trips full of Arthurian heritage at Tintagel Castle (30 minutes).
