Royal Cornwall Events Centre Camping: Electric grass pitches

General

  • Based on Cornwall's County Showground near Cornwall's north coast
  • Five minutes' drive from Wadebridge and 15 minutes from Padstow
  • Spacious, clean and secure with good facilities and far-reaching views

Make camping the main event at this spacious, clean and secure showground site just off the A39 in rural north Cornwall. Surrounded by open countryside a mile and a half from Wadebridge and the river Camel, Royal Cornwall Events Centre Camping is an excellent location for exploring this county's 400 miles of beaches, cliffs and coves.

This expansive site has a choice between wild-style areas that are great for off-grid breaks and pitches with electric hook-ups, all close to the Event Centre's modern toilets and showers; accessible amenities (Space to Change) are also available using the Radar Key Scheme. Wherever you settle down, you'll have access to some simply great scenery – including the prospect of a cracking Cornish sunset or two – and are welcome to bring your dog along (Royal Cornwall Events Centre Camping has a dedicated area for exercising four-legged friends.)

A five-minute drive or walk to Wadebridge is all it takes to get to supermarkets, shops, restaurants and the spectacular Camel Trail (bike hire is available in the town if you haven't brought your own). For beaches, boats and celebrity-owned restaurants, meanwhile, set your sights on the close-by town of Padstow, a 15-minute drive away.

Local attractions

First things first – this is Cornwall, so pack up and head for the beach. Polzeath's pretty sands (15 minutes' drive) are a good place to start with many others such as Harlyn Bay, Daymer Bay and Tregirls also nearby. Take the South West Coast Path if you want a walking tour to more remote, under-the-radar spots.

This part of Cornwall is very well set up for family-focused tourism, with top attractions including outdoor play at Camel Creek Adventure Park (10 minutes), a mix of indoor and open-air watersports at Retallack Resort and Spa (10 minutes) and – if you're prepared to drive about an hour to visit its top-rated rides – Flambards Theme Park.

If animals are your thing, then bring along binoculars and lie in wait for passing wildlife on the Camel Trail (five minutes), head to Padstow for an offshore Sealife Safari (15 minutes) or take the kids to the see the wealth of wild beasties at Newquay Zoo (25 minutes). For something a bit more niche, there's also the National Lobster Hatchery (15 minutes), a conservation centre where you can meet baby crustaceans and get the chance to adopt a hatchling.

Must see

  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (4.9 kilometers)
  • Rock Beach (6.0 kilometers)
  • Eden Project (17.3 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps (11.7 kilometers)
  • Trerice (18.4 kilometers)
