And the concept of packing up the car, strapping the kids in and driving to the south west rather than having to traipse through a hot and crowded airport is a whole lot more attractive, especially when the weather’s just as good here as it is abroad! Now, I know I’m painting a pretty perfect picture here but there is a way to make your staycation even easier and that’s if you cut out the process of trawling through booking sites and fighting for your chance to get the best week of the school holidays, which is why we recommend purchasing your very own holiday home with Parkdean Resorts.

The notion that you can make a last minute decision and head to the coast makes owning your own holiday home such a treat. Aside from spending time in peaceful surroundings, you can get to know the area with ease and make the most of Cornwall’s coastal playground, famous attractions and landmarks. Here’s our breakdown of Parkdean Resorts’ stunning holiday parks so that you can get an idea of what location would suit you!

There are six ownership parks to choose from, each with miles of stunning coastline right on your doorstep, and a range of onsite facilities, meaning you’ll never be short of things to do, from indoor swimming pools and fishing lakes to a variety of restaurants and cafes so you can have a break from the kitchen. Plus, all ages can tune into live entertainment and free kids clubs too, allowing children’s imaginations to run wild as they immerse themselves in themed events and mini adventures whilst you sit back and relax.

St Minver is located on the fringes of Cornwall in Wadebridge, so as soon as you hit Cornwall you know you’ve almost made it to your holiday home, a good option for those of you who have a long drive ahead to get here! Set in the grounds of an old manor house, the park’s peaceful woodland setting is the perfect base from which to explore the Cornish Riveriera.

Next on the list is Newquay Holiday Park, full of great activities for the whole family, as well as fantastic facilities such as three outdoor swimming pools, an outdoor playground and multi-sports court. Lovers of the outdoors will benefit from being close to well-known attractions such as Newquay Zoo and the Eden Project, not forgetting the north coast’s stunning beaches! Also near Newquay, White Acres, is set within beautiful rolling countryside, and is one of the UK’s premier fishing destinations. There are thirteen peaceful fishing lakes, which keen anglers or anyone looking to experience the tranquillity of fishing can enjoy. The park’s latest development, Nelson’s Meadow, offers a selection of eleven luxury lodges that fringe one of the idyllic lakes – a truly tranquil escape.

Overlooking the beach, Crantock Beach Holiday Park is just a five-minute walk from Crantock’s beautiful stretch of golden sands. If you’re a fan of outdoor adventure this is the park for you, ideally located to explore the South West Coast Path, plus back at base there’s a nine-hole crazy golf adventure play area and pub.

Then we have Mullion Holiday Park, which boasts the ultimate location to explore Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula. Set within breathtaking countryside, on site there’s a heated indoor pool and outdoor adventure playground, perfect for the kids.

And finally, Looe Bay Holiday Park offers the best of both worlds with its peaceful location and lively activities. Head to the beach for rockpooling adventures or visit nearby fishing town East Looe for a stroll along the pier and to discover its quirky cobbled streets.

Parkdean Resorts’ stunning holiday parks will help you make your coastal escape a reality, so if you want to own a slice of paradise, then get in touch today and discover the delights of owning a holiday home in our beautiful county.
