Cornwall caravan holidays and holiday parks
Cornwall holidays are right up there with the best in the UK. Gleaming white beaches, crashing azure surf and a rugged rocky coast combine to make this gorgeous county irresistible to UK holidaymakers. You’re never far from quaint villages on a Cornwall caravan holiday. They give you a snapshot of daily life in England’s southwestern most county, with authentic Cornish cuisine always on hand to satisfy your tastebuds.
There are two Haven holiday parks in Cornwall, just steps from beaches that can only be described as paradise for surfers. Perran Sands on the county’s rugged north coast, and Riviere Sands where the River Hale meets the stunning Atlantic Ocean. Fancy bringing your dog? Check out our dog friendly holidays to Cornwall.

Things to do in Cornwall
For the historians in the family, King Arthur's Tintagel Castle is a must-see. Immerse yourself in the dramatic sea views, myths and legends of this magical ruin before braving Merlin's cave on the beach below. If you're into natural history, you can marvel at the granite moorland of Bodmin Moor. Take a trip to the Eden Project - the largest indoor rainforest in the world, with discovery trails, a canopy walkway, a zip wire and climbing frames. There's also Newquay Zoo and the open-air Minack Theatre overlooking the sea; no two Cornwall holidays need ever be the same.
