Welcome to our Cornish resort..............The Park style!
‘Indulge in some serious camping opulence!’
The Yurt village, 1950's retro airstream caravans, summerhouses and static caravan selection offers you a chance to immerse yourself in some Glamping opulence that's not going to cost you the earth...
Whether you're planning a romantic getaway or action-packed weekend of outdoor adventure, The Park at Mawgan Porth is the perfect place for your next getaway. Tucked away in a wonderfully romantic setting just a short walk from the stunning golden sands of Mawgan Porth Beach, it's hard to beat this idyllic location.
On a sunny, south-facing hillside behind Mawgan Porth beach on the north Cornwall coast, The Park is a collection of eco-friendly self-catering places to stay. Technically a holiday park, conceptually something else altogether, the 27-acre site has something to suit everyone: there’s a clutch of retro 1950s airstreams and a yurt village for glampers, lovely static caravans (yes, really), and for those who prefer four walls and a proper roof, there are eco terraces, detached cottages and lodges. The site has a villagey feel, with gravel lanes, well-kept borders and gardens separating the various plots, all centred around the fabulous Park Café.
A glimpse inside one of the eco-lodges
Goose-bumpy beautiful – colourful, creative, and photo-perfect from every angle: a bespoke reclaimed wood bed, peonies on pink shelves, a beautiful patchwork quilt thrown artfully over an armchair, a wood-burner for those holidaying out of season … and a hot-tub on the deck to enjoy the natural world around you.
Life at The Park revolves around the café, a raised, contemporary building – all wood and glass – with a sloping roof and airy Scandinavian-style interiors with mismatched upcycled furniture – the owner’s wife ransacked second-hand shops around the country to furnish the café. It’s incredibly laidback, the sort of space you’ll long to linger in, with a gentle buzz created by the endlessly cheerful staff and the bustle in the kitchen. A blackboard propped on a chair by the doorway invites you to pick your own gooseberries, rhubarb, salad leaves and herbs from the site’s various vegetable patches.
A selection of freshly-made cakes sat on Victorian glass cakestands, homemade artisan breads filled wicker baskets. The weekly menu chalked up on the blackboard – local mussels, smoked mackerel, roasted scallops with chilli and coriander.
Well, for starters, you’ve got Mawgan Porth’s golden sands at the end of the road, with watersports centres just off the beach if you’re interested in hiring a surf, kite or paddle board. Watergate Bay, a little further down the coast, has more hire options. The South West Coast Path runs for miles in both directions – for a good day’s walk, follow it north to Constantine Bay (6 miles each way, or catch bus number 556 back). If you wake up to lashing rain and you want to stick closer to home, you can take comfort in the fact that there are lots of things to do onsite too. There’s the leisure centre with indoor pool, sauna and steam room, the conservation area with walkways through areas of wildflowers and plants, and a soft play yurt for tots.
Green is big business at The Park. Many of the lodges have solar panels providing hot water and electricity, and everything is built with the environment in mind: recycled furniture, FSC- approved wood, super insulation and airsource heat pumps to help with heating in winter. The café uses eggs from the hens that live onsite, fruit and veg from their allotments, and everything else is local and seasonal. These are the specifics, but it's the ethos here that really captivates: being mindful of the environment is second nature to Philip and his team – and it will rub off on you.
Stay for a week and don't touch the car. Why would you – you’ve got everything you could possibly want from a week in Cornwall on your doorstep. Take a dip in the pool before breakfast, head to the café for poached eggs or a big bowl of homemade muesli and berries, then pack your beach things and head to the sea for the day. Return for dinner in the café. Repeat six times.
The Park emanates happiness – you can see it in the staff, the food, and in the faces of the guests as they arrive with their flocks of excited children. A fun, colourful, vibrant and unusual place to stay.
