Par Camping is a spacious site in a convenient location five minutes' drive from the Eden Project in southern Cornwall. Open from the 17th July until the 11th September
This dog-friendly spot has a dedicated dog-walking area as well as well-maintained amenities like toilets and showers. There’s plenty of room for families at this sizeable site, where you can sit in the sunshine and breathe in some of that famed Cornish air over a cup of tea or coffee.
The coast is roughly a mile away from Par Camping, with the closest bathing option being Carlyon Bay beach. Seaside trips further afield are made easy here because of the site’s close proximity to the main A390, allowing you to get to Newquay, Fowey, Mevagissey and other scenic locations.
The site is located next to the very popular Par Market & Food Hall, where you can pick up all sorts of souvenirs, fresh local produce and tasty meals from a wide range of food outlets. There’s a pub with excellent food and a beer garden a few minutes’ walk away too.
If you’d like to stay on site to be fed, take a seat at Sam’s Diner, a 50s-style American eatery (all red-leather booths and appropriate memorabilia) to feast on juicy burgers and American-style shakes.
If the kids need somewhere to blow off some steam, that’s covered as well: Kidzworld, one of the largest indoor/outdoor play facilities in the southwest, is a mere two-minute walk from the site, with fun activities for kids of all ages (yes, parents included…)
Away from base, the village of Par also has a golf course, garden centre and café.
