  • Cornwall holiday park with beach access five minutes’ drive from Hayle
  • A 25-minute drive to Flambards Theme Park, Tate St Ives 20 minutes
  • Bar, bistro and shop on site, plus a play park and heated indoor pool
Private access to a three-mile sandy beach sound tempting? That's the fabulous feature you’ll get at St Ives Bay Holiday Park, set on sand dunes five minutes’ drive from Hayle in Cornwall. If you’re all piling in for a family holiday, you can spend days building sandcastles, running around on the beach with the kids and cooling off in the sea. Travelling as a couple? You’ll have spectacular sea views across St Ives Bay and you’re almost guaranteed colourful sunsets as a backdrop for romantic twilight strolls on the sand. And when kicking back and enjoying the views is not quite enough for you (and, let’s face it, the kids will want more), how about crazy golf, tennis or the amusement arcades? You can burn off more energy at the surf school or in the heated indoor swimming pool, and there are play areas scattered around the park to wear the kids out properly. With all this going on, make sure you leave time to unwind for a drink at the terrace bar with superb views over the bay and a menu of small, tapas-style snacks – there’s entertainment in the evenings too. Or you may like to make a night of it with the family over a freshly prepared meal at Sands Bistro? Forgotten an important ingredient or need milk for your morning cuppa? There’s a well-stocked independent shop on site that stocks all the essentials, including your daily newspaper.

Liked: The view! The toilet and showers were basic but clean. The pool was great, but changing room and showers could do with some TLC Arcade was fun

Disliked: Food in restaurants was quite pricey

Liked: We got a pitch right next to the dunes looking out to sea. You don’t have to walk far for miles of golden sand and incredible sunsets. We used the indoor swimming pool a couple of times which the kids loved. It’s clean, well maintained and has a lifeguard. The kids also enjoyed the ‘kids house party’ entertainment on one evening. We didn’t stay for the live entertainment as it was in fairly late for our two little ones, and the bingo beforehand isn’t our thing. The facilities are clean and serviceable if a little basic. There’s a bus service that’s about 10 minute walk from the resort and can take you to St Ives or further afield if you wish. We took a trip to St Ives for the day which was great. Staff were all friendly and helpful and we had a great stay.

Disliked: There’s no family changing/showering facility so it can be a little squished in a single cubicle with the kids and it’s difficult to keep stuff dry. They can be a little cold and draughty too as external doors are left open. Check out is 10am which can make things feel rushed when you are trying to pack up and get sorted before departure. We didn’t really need to use the electric hook up, but there was no option for a pitch without one.

Liked: Really well positioned, with good facilities. There is excellent access to the dunes and beach, nice clean site. Pitches are fairly level, with a slight slope ok with a tourer but motorhomes will probably need a set of level

Disliked: Crazy amount of dogs, but to be expected with good walk access.

Local attractions

When you can prise the kids away from the beach, chances are they may demand to be taken to Flambards Theme Park (25 minutes’ drive) to explore the Victorian Village and experience Britain in the Blitz, run riot on the thrill rides and dig for fossils at Dino Dig. For a sneaky lesson in Cornish history, spend time on the immersive Dark Walk at Bodmin Jail Attraction (50 minutes) and take a look around the dank prison cells, or travel back to Tudor times with Elizabethan-themed workshops at National Trust-owned Trerice (40 minutes). Come right back up to date with a tour of the masterpiece works of contemporary art at Tate St Ives (20 minutes). If it’s animal-related activities you’re after, meet rescue owls at the Screech Owl Sanctuary (40 minutes), or feed the seals at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary (half an hour). Take an underground safari to see sharks and colourful shoals of tropical fish at Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay (40 minutes), and see big cats in spacious enclosures at Newquay Zoo (35 minutes).
