Polladras Holiday Park: Peaceful!

General

  • Secluded, peaceful park in a rural setting a few miles from Praa Sands
  • Within 30 minutes' drive of Land's End, St Ives and Falmouth
  • Two-acre dog exercise area, nature trail, games field and play barn

Avoid the madding crowds on your summer sojourn to Cornwall and stay at this green, secluded and peaceful park instead: Polladras Holiday Park has had previous guests waxing lyrical about its peace, its quiet and its lovely location 15 minutes' drive from Helston and pretty Porthleven harbour.

The park is in a rural setting four miles from the beaches of Cornwall’s south coast and within easy reach of coastal and countryside walks. It’s in a top spot too for south-west Cornwall explores with Penzance, the Lizard Peninsula and Land’s End no more than half an hour’s drive away. Yet blissful peace will always be yours when you potter back to pitch, as family-friendly Polladras is set over nine acres and has no noisy bar, clubhouse or evening entertainment.

This is a place that gives a good nod to eco-friendly aspects: low wattage bulbs are used throughout and recycling is paramount. Heaps of info is displayed about non-car ways of getting around the local area, in the form of bus timetables on display and details of walks from the park given to all guests, and the well thought-out nature trail leads to a games field with play barn, football goals and a climbing frame to wrestle the kids away from their consoles.

Dogs are welcome, and the two-acre exercise area on the edge of the park should keep Fido pretty stress-free too...

    Not given the right pitch to start with
    Having a power cut on the Sunday night
    Being at the bottom of the hill where the rain ran down and into our tent
    Having to pay £4 for a washing machine which was smaller than the one we have at home
    The location is a bit remote not very easy to get to a few tight corners and blind bends

    Quiet site with a one way system for traffic which was a nice compact size and facilities were great. Kids’ play facilities were excellent and the site is well cleaned and run with COVID security in mind.

    Disliked: 

    Some guests not following one way system or ‘quiet’ policy but no fault of the site.

Local attractions

Within half an hour or less you’ll reach most of the main highlights of south-west Cornwall as well as many beyond: Flambards Theme Park, St Ives, Falmouth and the gardens of Glendurgan, Trebah and Trewithian are all close by, and the town of Helston, Cornwall’s second oldest (after Marazion), is three miles from the park.

Stunning beaches are all around: Praa Sands 10 minutes’ drive away; Sennen Cove and its consistent waves for surf, and Porthleven, Pollurian and Mullion for fishing, more watersporting and rockpooling.

From Porthkerris beach, towards Falmouth, you can learn to dive and look for the shore’s shipwrecks, while Kennack Sands and Kynance towards the Lizard are the ones to take the paintbox to. Newquay and the famed surf beaches of Cornwall’s north coast are within seven miles.

For walkies, take to the countryside around Lower Polladras using the park guides, or have some gorgeously scenic strolls along the South West Coast Path to Mullion, Marazion, Mousehole or Penzance.

On the north coast, try the eight-mile hike from Portreath to Godrevy, stopping off for blackberry ice cream or apple cake and clotted cream at the famed Hells Mouth café along the way.
