Great days out
Enjoy magical holidays in Cornwall at Harlyn Sands Holiday Park, on the stunning North Cornish coast near Padstow. We are located in one of the most beautiful regions of Cornwall, with sea views that leave most other caravan and camping sites in the shade…
To help you decide how to spend your time during your stay with us we’ve put together a few of the great attractions within an easy drive. Alternatively we’ve also split Cornwall into 3 regions, North Cornwall and the local area, Newquay and mid Cornwall and finally West Cornwall.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Over 200 acres of exotic jungle just waiting to be explored, these 19th-century botanical gardens are near Mevagissey. Look out for the Sleeping Moss Giant as you stroll around; just tell the kids to be careful not to wake him up!
On a headland near the maritime town of Falmouth with spectacular views out to sea. Commissioned by Henry VIII, this Tudor artillery fort doesn’t disappoint.
The Eden Project
Bring the whole family to Cornwall’s most famous attraction and the world’s largest indoor rainforest! Explore the paradise of plants in the Mediterranean and Rainforest zones of the two huge biomes and don’t miss the equally spellbinding outdoor gardens.
St Michael’s Mount
One for the romantics, this castle-topped mystical island connected to the mainland by a causeway is one of Cornwall’s most beautiful sights. Walk across at low tide from the coastal town of Marazion to visit the castle and gardens.
Museum of Witchcraft and Magic
Come and see the world’s largest collection of witchcraft at this fascinating museum near Boscastle on the North Cornish coast. Dedicated to European witchcraft and magic.
Camel Creek Adventure Park
Known as Cornwall’s greatest adventure park, Camel Creek in Tredinnick has so much to do for children of all ages. Hop on the Clown Coaster, get wet on the Mini Log Flume or Thunder Falls and sit in the twirling teacups at Dina’s Dancing Flowers.
Lappa Valley Steam Railway
Hop aboard the vintage carriages of this steam railway near Newquay. Take a nostalgic miniature steam train ride through enchanting Cornish woodland.
Cornish Seal Sanctuary
It’s not only seals at this wildlife attraction, though the seal rescue centre is home to some of the cutest grey seal pups in the land. The sanctuary in Gweek rescues and rehabilitates the pups from along the Cornish coastline.
