St. Ives, Hayle — and beyond. Welcome to Cornwall.
Tackle the countryside walking trail to Zennor. Browse the seafront rotating modern art exhibitions at St. Ives. Wind the afternoon away on Gwithian Beach.
Tucked away under the trees, Parbola Holiday Park is your launchpad for experiencing quintessential Cornwall — golden coastline, unspoiled heathland and historic harbour towns. Write your own adventure!
The home of seal colonies, world-class surf destinations, endless incredible independent eateries and a charming harbour port, St. Ives is the ultimate day trip a drive away from ours. Then there’s historic Hayle, a 15 minute drive away, with its Paradise Park, as well as a selection of incredible, dog-friendly beaches.
If you have a car, we might also suggest an adventure beyond. The coast road to Land’s End — with lunch at The Gurnards Head or Sennen on the way — is spellbinding.

Live and breathe Cornwall’s world-class coastline.
For the sweeping sands of Bamaluz to the towering cliffs of Porthmeor, Cornwall has an enviable, well-earned reputation for beautiful, unspoiled beaches. Live it up on some of the finest coasts in the world.
Our caravan and holiday park is just a mere five-minute drive from the swelling waves, sandy dunes and rock pools of Gwithian Towans beach. Stretching from Hayle to the National Trust’s Godrevy beach, the iconic sands of Cornwall’s north coast are cherished the world over. There’s no place quite like it.
It’s heaven on Earth for our furry friends, too. As well as being a dog-friendly holiday park ourselves, there’s no shortage of pro-pup beaches in Cornwall — Bamaluz beach, Pier beach, Lambeth walk, Mexico Towans and Porthkidney Sands welcome those on four legs all year round.
Holiday homes, grass pitches, safari tents & a warm welcome.
With our own licensed shop, book exchange and mini golf, if you don’t want to, you don’t even have to step off park. Take a dip in the shared heated pool, yours to enjoy from 9th June 2023 until 1st September 2023. We’ve got everything you need to simply leave it all behind and join us for a getaway.
Choose from a range of cosy, well-equipped and immaculately-furnished holiday homes or safari tents. Or, if you’re pitching up under the Cornish sky, we have lots of spacious, flat grass electric and grass non-electric pitches.
Nothing’s too much trouble for our team — whether that’s a helping hand deciding which world-class beach to visit tomorrow, or you’d like us to hail you a taxi for your evening trip to St. Ives. From the moment you step on park, we’re here to make sure your holiday is the best it can be.
As a warm, welcoming and caring park community, we’re in pretty special surroundings and do everything we can to keep it that way. We can’t wait to welcome you here.

Pets, kids — bring everyone along for a holiday in Cornwall.
None of the family have to miss out. Whether you’re on two small legs or four furry ones, step into one of our holiday homes or book one of our camping pitches for the holiday of a lifetime in Cornwall.
With oodles of coast and country walking trails to explore, we’re a pup’s paradise; a place to chase sticks in style — which is why we’re delighted to welcome two dogs per booking.
Whether your best pal is enjoying the walking route to Zennor, bounding along Gwithian beach or curling up in front of the fire at a local tavern, we think they’ll enjoy their stay in Cornwall just as much as you!
Let’s plan your getaway
Whether you’re up for an action-packed fortnight or a recharge-your-batteries kind of weekend, our Parbola park and its breathtaking surroundings have no shortage of activities for all the family.
Here’s just a few of our favourites that you can’t miss out on…
Cornish Trevaskis Farm — just a five-minute drive from our park is this little gem; with animals, ‘pick your own’ and its own market, this is a true Cornish countryside experience. Be sure to try the Trevaskis Gateaux at their restaurant, too.
Royal Standard Gwinear — welcome to our dog-friendly local, offering great homemade food, an excellent selection of ales and a beautiful beer garden. Truly the place to stop off on the walk back from Hayle.
St. Ives Farmers’ Market — running every Thursday from 9:30–2pm at St. Ives Guildhall, this is a must-visit — an award-winning farmers’ market showcasing the best produce from local independent stallholders.
Paradise Park & JungleBarn — just up the road in Hayle is a lovely little local gem; this wildlife sanctuary is home to over 1,000 birds and animals as well as the World Parrot Trust.
Family days out — you can’t beat the big-ticket attractions for a fun-filled family day out. Just a short drive away are some of Cornwall’s most instantly-recognisable names, including The Eden Project, Flambards Theme Park, Jamaica Inn, The Lost Gardens, Tintagel Castle and Geevor Tin Mine.
