Mother Ivey’s Bay is an immaculate, award-winning, 150-touring pitch, dog-friendly holiday park, meticulously landscaped and boasting one of the most enviable coastal positions on the north Cornwall coast – offering its own private, pearlescent, sandy beach and direct access to the stunning Coastal Path. The Park offers a choice of three manicured touring fields and a large tenting field, each offering panoramic views across the headland and onward across the adjoining bays. Three modern clean toilet blocks, one with family units, two with baby-changing facilities and one fully accessible shower & WC unit serve our touring and tenting fields. For younger visitors, the Park offers a large nautically themed play area and a large ball games area. For nature lovers, our five acre nature reserve offers an opportunity to experience the local flora and fauna from within the Park boundary. The Park offers a licensed on-site shop, selling all necessities. Wi-Fi is available throughout the park.
Mother Ivey’s Bay enjoys a reputation of being one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets. Positioned at the narrowest point of the picturesque Trevose Headland, the Park offers panoramic views to both the North and West. Situated at the centre of the renowned “seven bays” area, Mother Ivey’s Bay’s own private beach offers golden flat sand leading to the water’s edge. The pearlescent and sheltered cove waters are enjoyed by local seals alongside occasional bodyboarders when neighbouring bays are too rough. Mother Ivey’s Bay is supplemented by six other beaches within walking distance offering dog-friendly, surfer-friendly and stroll-friendly destinations for every day of your holiday.
Mother Ivey’s Bay offers the broadest choice of accommodation options across three touring fields, a tenting field and our luxury static caravan fleet. All areas are designed to maximise views across the headland whilst maintaining pitch privacy and comfort. Our one dog-free touring field offers accommodation for visitors less confident around our four-legged friends. The whole park is immaculately kept, with well-mown grass, beautiful flowerbeds, rockeries and traditional Cornish walls.
North Cornwall abounds with sites of historic and natural interest. The areas nearby have been designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest because of the rare flora & fauna found here. Walkers and cyclists are spoiled for choice. North Cornwall’s famous Camel Trail winds along the picturesque Camel Estuary linking Padstow to Wenfordbridge via Wadebridge & Bodmin whilst the Cornish Coastal Path passes along the boundary of the Park.
Golfers can enjoy a round on the internationally renowned links course at Trevose Golf Club. The Clubhouse, only 5 minutes walk from the Park, offers a bar and restaurant which is open to the Public throughout the year. Bedruthan Steps is a 5 minute drive away or a stunning day walk and is run by the National Trust. This is one of the most popular destinations on the Cornish coast because of the spectacular cliff-top view of rocks stretching away into the distance across the sweep of Bedruthan beach.
For younger visitors, if a day on the golden sands is not enough, local watersport schools may offer a different perspective of the shoreline – when in Cornwall, do as the locals do and grab your board and head into the surf. Alternatively, children will also enjoy the Crealy Adventure Park, said to be one of Cornwall’s largest attractions and is a must for all the family.
