Polmanter Touring Park is just a short drive from one of Cornwall’s most popular hotspots – the pretty fishing port of St Ives, with its cobbled streets and sandy beaches. But while St Ives itself is bustling with tourists in high summer, Polmanter Touring Park promises a relaxing stay, far from the madding crowd. It has such excellent on-site leisure facilities that you’ll find it hard for you to tear yourself away, despite the wonderful beaches and attractions on offer in this part
of West Cornwall.
The pitches, almost all of which are on grass, are evenly spread in rows over six fields. They are spacious and beautifully kept, and most are bordered by thick, neatly clipped hedges so that you have a feeling of privacy, without being totally separated from your neighbours. You can make your holiday even more relaxing by booking one of the multi-serviced pitches complete with fresh water, grey water drainage and TV point.
There is a long list of superb amenities, including a heated pool, a mini-market, a sports area and a restaurant, and there’s even an internet access point, if you want to update friends and family on your hols. If you want to visit nearby St Ives without the hassle of parking, there’s a bus running direct from the site during the high season.

Practical Caravan Great Escapes recommended park July 2005
This is a large site that is also beautifully maintained and extremely well managed. The pitches, which are spread over six fields, are all spacious and level, and most are on grass and separated by thick, waist-high hedges for greater privacy. Of these, 88 are ‘multi-service’ with their own fresh and waste water points, as well as a TV point.
And ten are situated on hardstanding. The site’s proximity to St Ives
(a bus service runs to St Ives from just outside the site in peak season) will make Polmanter very popular in summer, as will its fine views of the sea. The site’s other big draw is its facilities, which include a large outdoor pool, tennis courts and a bar-restaurant.
If you’re coming via the A30, the turning into the lane off the B3311 is a little awkward, so be prepared to creep forward carefully. There is a large late-arrivals field just inside the entrance to the site; but there is no hook-up here.The site offers seasonal pitches
and some good off-peak deals.

At the edge of the pretty fishing port of St Ives lies Polmanter Touring Park, which offers cutting-edge facilities and all the amenities you could need, including a heated swimming pool, a mini supermarket and computer access for checking your email.
The spacious, beautifully kept pitches are bounded by neat hedges. Fresh water and disposal points are located throughout and there are 87 fully serviced pitches. There are, however, no disabled facilities.
This area of West Cornwall has lots to see and do. There is a multitude of art galleries, including the recently built Tate St Ives.

If you prefer sheltered beaches, the calm Channel coast is just a short drive away, where you’ll also find the towns of Penzance and Mousehole, and another island: St Michael’s Mount.

On the edge of the pretty fishing port of St Ives lies Polmanter Touring Park. In contrast to the age and tradition of the town, though, Polmanter offers the cutting edge of facilities. It has all of the amenities you could need, including its own heated swimming pool, a mini supermarket, a games room and sports areas, and a restaurant. In the large reception area is a mountain of free information on interesting things to see and do during your stay. And if you can’t bear to be away from your email, you will even find a computer in the lobby for this purpose.
The spacious pitches are beautifully kept, and each is separated by neat hedges. The whole site is well appointed with fresh water and disposal points throughout and a healthy number of fully serviced pitches. There are, however, no disabled facilities.
This area of West Cornwall has so much to offer. There is a multitude of art galleries including the recently built Tate St Ives.
