If you're after a Cornish holiday set in the county's southwest and within seriously simple reach of the arty town of St Ives, have a look at highly regarded and family friendly Higher Penderleath Caravan and Camping Park: it's only five minutes' drive from the town centre and handily set for getting around the spectacular scenery of the Land's End peninsula.
Nature, walks and calm quiet days are in these parts too, as Penderleath is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty among the microclimate of Penwith, with easy access to the South West Coast Path running along Cornwall's entire coastline. The site is easy to get to from the A30.
The owners take pride in the clean and friendly atmosphere of their park, and have updated the original granite barns into swish site facilities of a licensed bar, spacious games room and a family room. There's also a beer garden and a play area for adult relaxing and kids letting off steam.
Other facilities include toilet blocks with free hot showers, a launderette and a washing-up room, and a small shop stocked with essentials and gas bottles.

Nice and quiet, clean and just what we wanted
Overall ok for the price.
Plenty of showers and loos and a few 3 pin 240volt plugs to charge you
The site was in a good location and the pitch …
Overall, great one night stay on a tent pitch. Would stay again.
Very poor cleanliness especially in current COVID pandemic!

The art galleries, craft galleries and inns and restaurants of St Ives are all easy to get to from the site, as it's only five minutes' drive from the town centre. Parking can be a bit tricky in town in high season, so save stress – and cash – by taking the bus, running five times a day from right outside the site.
St Ives's beaches are among the many highly scenic swathes of sand around Higher Penderleath Caravan and Camping Park and the Land's End part of Cornwall, almost all with easy access to spectacular walks along the South West Coast Path where short stretches or longer hikes in either direction are easy to find.
Penzance five miles from base is a 20-minute walk from Cornish landmark St Michael's Mount, the tiny tidal island linked to the town of Marazion by causeway. Further along at 16 miles is Land's End, via Porthcurno and the smashing cliffside Minack Theatre.
