Pentewan Sands Holiday Park


Private Cornish beach in Holiday Park close to St Austell

Families and couples seeking the perfect Cornish holiday can enjoy excellent accommodation and facilities in unrivalled coastal surroundings at Pentewan Sands Holiday Park. Literally located ‘on the beach’, Pentewan Sands offers a range of accommodation options and excellent on-site facilities, including two swimming pools, a poolside coffee shop, an amusement arcade, tennis courts and a watersports centre.

Pentewan’s range of accommodation includes over 120 Holiday Homes (with budget to luxury options available) and well-maintained grass pitches for camping, caravans and motorhomes.

    The Holiday Homes offer two or three bedrooms with generous living and dining space. Ready-equipped with all the comforts of home, these offer the perfect option for families who want a fun-packed holiday just yards from the beach. With many of the holiday homes opening directly onto a generous sun-deck or covered balcony, they're the perfect place for sipping a sundowner or just watching the world go by. Laid out in various areas of the park, many have spectacular sea views and others enjoy the peace and seclusion of their woodland Willows area, cossetted by trees and flowers.

    If you take your own tent, touring caravan or motorhome there are plenty of generously sized electric and non-electric pitches, some that are literally a few feet from the beach.

    This five-star holiday park is home to a whole host of fabulous activities. Family-friendly and packed with variety, they'll keep everyone smiling from the moment you arrive till the moment you leave. Make a beeline for The Seahorse; a newly refurbished clubhouse with two indoor swimming pools: a fun pool with water flume and a lap pool for serious swimmers, an amusement arcade, fresh food and kids entertainment. There’s also an on-site shop, beachside restaurant, tennis courts, beach playground, laundrette and takeaway.

    Pentewan Sands Holiday Park is situated on its own private beach, with half a mile of golden sand in a quiet, sheltered bay close to Mevagissey. Guests can enjoy a number of water sports activities under the expert eye of their resident watersports expert, including Kayaking, Surfing, Sailing, Water Skiing, Windsurfing and Paddleboarding. Alternatively, you could just sit back, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Cornish countryside.

    As well as these excellent facilities, Pentewan Sands offers all the practical essentials that make a holiday comfortable. Immaculately clean Holiday Homes come as standard and there are modern toilets and lovely warm showers to ensure campers get the best start to their day. As well as a range of locally sourced food and other practical items, the on-site shop also sells freshly baked croissants and stocks all the essentials for your stay.

    The Lost Gardens of Heligan are close by, along with the Eden Project. A short walk will take you to Mevagissey, a characterful fishing village. It's also worth checking out Charlestown on the other side of St Austell, especially if you enjoyed Poldark, as much of the BBC series was filmed in the historic harbour. Sightseeing over, head back to the park to relax – and enjoy.
