The Local Area around Tregoad
As an owner, whilst you have everything you need on the park it’s nice to know that the best of everything that Cornwall has to offer is on the doorstep.
From Tregoad Holiday Park, owners can explore several local areas of outstanding natural beauty, all of them suitable for a family day trip.
Quintessential Coastal Cornwall
The picturesque fishing villages of Looe and Polperro are a stone’s throw away, as are the sandy beaches of Millendreath and Lantic Bay. For swimming, Whitsand Bay is within easy reach.
Just 50 minutes from Tregoad via the Bodinnick Ferry (small car & passenger ferry) is the very popular harbour town of Fowey, which dates back as a working fishing village to the 7th century but is now fashionable as a foodie and sailing destination ripe for the Instagram era.
There’s so much more to Cornwall than the coast. Just a short drive from Tregoad Holiday Park is the beautiful Port Eliot House and Gardens, said to be the oldest continually inhabited dwelling in the UK.
Also nearby is the amazing Eden Project, one of Cornwall’s top attractions, housing the largest captive rainforest on earth, as well as the landscaped grounds at Mount Edgcumbe House & Country Park and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, a curious tropical paradise near Mevagissey, another of Cornwall’s stunning fishing villages.
Looe and Local Eateries
Just 5 minutes drive from Tregoad and well worth a visit is the beautiful little fishing town of Looe. The town has a small harbour and is situated along the valley of the River Looe which flows through it.
Within Looe itself and nearby for family friendly gastro pub dining, we recommend The Old Sail Loft in East Looe, or head to the Ocean & Earth nearby for Thai food (takeaway option) or The Smugglers Cott for fresh local catch, steaks and carvery. This is your typical cosy Cornish pub.
For a bijou dining experience, there’s the Bistro on the Beach at Millendreath, a charming beach bar with a great breakfast and lunch menu.
