Padstow Touring Park, Padstow, Cornwall

Padstow Touring Park was our home for the final three nights of our tour of Cornwall. We selected it based on its website and how close it was to Padstow. It was the biggest site that we visited and we estimated that there were over 100 pitches, which was a bit of a difference from the other two sites that we visited which were much smaller.
