Holidays in Cornwall
Cornwall is famous for its coastal activities such as surfing and cliff-top walks, as well as culinary delights including the Cornish pasty, fresh seafood and creamy Cornish ice cream. Enjoy all of this and more when you stay at Liskey Hill Holiday Park towards the north of this coastal county.
Liskey Hill is located close to the picturesque seaside town of Perranporth and its 3-mile long golden beach (found often on the best beaches of Britain lists). It sits less than a mile from the St Agnes Heritage Coast, both a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a World Heritage site. Plus, only 8 miles up the coast you’ll find the bustling town of Newquay, with plenty to do and also Cornwall’s only airport.
It is the perfect holiday park for making the most of the surrounding coastline and countryside. Whether it’s an adventure holiday you’re looking for, exploring the local areas or experiencing some of the fantastic water sports on offer, or perhaps you want to just relax on the beach or enjoy the Cornish countryside, there is something the whole family will enjoy.
