Recently named one of the top Holiday Parks in the South West, Pentewan Sands is a Five Star Holiday Park in Cornwall with a privately-owned beach, two indoor swimming pools, excellent family facilities and a range of holiday accommodation. So whether you choose to bring your own Motorhome, Touring Caravan or Tent, or stay in one of our modern and well-equipped Holiday Homes, you can be sure that you are staying in one of the most popular, privately owned and family-friendly five star holiday parks in Cornwall. Our beautifully kept camping and touring pitches are mostly electric, and no more than 3 minutes’ walk from the beach - some of our Beach Front and Grand Premium pitches are just a few feet from the sea. The modern two and three bedroom Holiday Homes are laid out in various areas of the park so you can choose between stunning sea views, or the seclusion of our woodland Willows.

We've got a wish list of facilities when looking for somewhere to drag our caravan to. Pool, entertainment, onsite shop, takeaway, bar (serving food a bonus), clean showers and ideally with a view of the sea or near a beach. We don't always get even close to everything in the one place however Pentewan Sands ticks all these boxes and a couple more. Look ahead at your route in from the A30 if you're coming down from there. I didn't and ended up on a pretty horrible road in to and through St Austell that I didn't need to use and could have done without with a 25ft van. Site is big, you can face any way you like on the pitches and it really is right on the beach, sand everywhere! We hired a boat from the on site watersport centre, swam in the pool, ate in the bar, drank while being entertained and generally had a great time. We'll be back again for sure. Just a shame the place is 520 miles from home! If I had to find fault, the sand on the beach is pretty gritty somehow and not comfortable under foot and the sound system in the ents lounge/bar was poor when two different acts were on on different nights, almost like a speaker was blown, the comedy/magic act did ok with it, the girls singing were struggling. We were stopped coming in a couple of times at the main gate by a conspicuous number of staff who had the entry gate closed. Turned out there were travellers in the area and the site staff were looking to prevent them gaining access and subsequently no doubt ruining a few peoples holidays, including ours. I was pleased to see such a proactive effort from the site staff. Already looking at availability for our next tour of the south west, though it would appear that getting a pitch right on the edge of the beach looking on to the bay is nigh on impossible.

Ok, honestly I did not visit here on January 2020. I have been using this venue since 1991 using tents, caravans and various motorhomes. I just love the place. Bought my kids here, now they have their own lives I visit with my wife only. I just love the whole Pentewan thing. Mevagissey just round the corner, Newquay 1/2 hour away. Well you get the picture. I have been doing Cornwall since I was a kid of 8yrs. I'm 66 now and still in love with the place. Pentewan sands is the best place that you could take your kids to. Safe beach, security with barrier, friendly staff and if you have a boat of any description, this is the place to be. Launch your own inflatable, any bigger and they have a tractor. The pitches are all good. We always have a fully serviced electric pitch. Toilet blocks always clean. The beach restaurant is great especially in the evening with the sun going down with the fairy lights on. Honestly, I could go on and on but it's all in the brochure and all very accurate. You can bring a tent, caravan, motorhome or rent one of their sited vans. You will not be disappointed.

Another fabulous stay at Pentewan Sands. Even the weather spoiling the firework fun couldn't put a dampener on our mini family break. This must have been our 7th or 8th visit here and cannot recommend it enough for a family holiday. Spotless, professional and warming are the three words I would use to describe Pentewan Sands. We'll be back!!

2nd time coming on holiday to Pentewan Sands, and had another enjoyable time.Had very nice weather when we came for the 9 day stay considering the time of year. Hubbox was amazing as usual. We stayed in a silver caravan which was very nice, the only downside to this was being a family of 4 and only having 1 toilet, so when you book for a caravan make sure you know how many toilets you have. Other then this had an amazing holiday!
