Mother Ivey’s Bay is an 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 sandy beach and direct access to the stunning Coastal Path. The park offers a choice of three touring fields and a large tenting field, each offering panoramic views across the headland and onward across the adjoining bays. Three modern toilet blocks, one with family units, two with baby-changing facilities and one accessible shower/WC unit, serve the touring/tenting fields.

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 a luxury static caravan fleet. All areas are designed to maximise views across the headland whilst maintaining pitch privacy and comfort. The 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.

For younger visitors, the park offers a large nautically-themed play area and a large ball games area. For nature lovers, the 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.

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 and 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 and 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 five minutes' walk from the park, offers a bar and restaurant which is open to the public throughout the year. Bedruthan Steps is a five-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.

Ideal Location 30/09/2019


We thought that our times in a caravan are over as we prefer a bit more comfort. When we saw this site we thought that we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. The site is well set out. The...

Beautiful site 26/09/2019


I booked here for a week 22nd to 29th of September. I arrived, after driving through awful floods at home, to find the sun shining long enough to get my awning up. The staff were lovely and after...

Different but just as good 23/09/2019


After 10 years of camping at Mother Ivey's we thought we'd give hiring a caravan a go just to see what it was like. For not very much more than a nightly luxury camping pitch, our van was brilliant...
