Valley Caravan Park was established in 1945 by William A Taylor and has continued to be run by the same Cornish family throughout the years. The park boasts a wonderful location in Polzeath, home to one of Cornwall’s premier surfing beaches.  The aim is to make your holiday a happy and memorable occasion, a member of the family or staff will be available to assist you at most times during the day and night.

The Park is situated in a valley leading down to the sea, with the entrance only 200 yards from Polzeath’s sandy beach. They have tried to keep the park as natural as possible, encouraging wildlife – especially mallard ducks, geese, squirrels, rabbits and moorhens.

At the Valley Caravan Park you will find a lounge bar with a six day license with entertainment in high season, a conservatory, and a cafe with seating area and games area. Free wireless is available in the bar and cafe areas, there is a launderette and children’s play area.

There are over 50 static caravans available for let for holidays, these vary by age, size and by number of bedrooms – 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms.  Caravan prices are determined by the age of the caravan, with the newer models being at the top end of our price range. Every effort is made to ensure that there is a choice of different price bands within different locations across the park, so that you’re more likely to find something that’s specifically suited to you and your family!  It is understood that, although you want to get away, you don’t want to be charged for the comforts you’d usually take for granted at home.

There are no hidden extras!  Duvets and pillows are provided, but you will need to bring your own linen and towels.
