Welcome to Polkerris Holidays Beside the Sea
Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Polkerris Holidays Beside the Sea is a small, family-run static caravan park, which enjoys a relaxed atmosphere & amazing views across St Austell Bay.
- Beach Nearby
- Linen provided
The park is home to seven modern caravans, arranged carefully on a terraced site overlooking the sea. It is is popular with parents, who tell us that their children can enjoy a degree of freedom here that they may not have at home or on a big, impersonal caravan site.
A two-minute stroll down a hedge-lined lane will take you to the sandy beach, complete with harbour wall, rock pools, watersports centre, beach shop with a hot food hut, as well as the renowned Rashleigh Inn & ‘Sams on the Beach’ restaurant.
Polkerris has a soft and sandy beach suitable for all ages from toddlers to grandparents and many visitors choose to do little more than sunbathing, fish off the harbour wall and investigate the rock pools.
For a more active holiday, the Polkerris Beach watersports centre offers RYA-recognised sailing and windsurfing courses, as well as standup-paddleboard, kayak, windsurfer and sailing dinghy rentals.
Close by are many lovely walks – coastal, riverside and inland. The spectacular international attraction of the Eden Project is only four miles away, as the crow flies.
Fowey is a pleasant 40-minute walk along the ancient Saints Way. Each year Fowey celebrates the work of the writer Daphne de Maurier who lived just up the road from Polkerris at Menabilly for a while.
THERE'S ALSO... • The fantastic cycle hub at Lanhydrock, great for mountain biking! • The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum • The South West Coast Path • The Saint's Way • Lanhydrock House - National Trust one of Cornwall's finest houses. • The historic town of Lostwithiel - Cornwall's hidden treasure! • Charlestown tall-ships harbour • The fishing villages of Mevagissey and Polperro • The Clay Trails Cycle Path …and the surfing beaches of the North Coast are less than 25 miles away!
