Park Opening 2021
Our self-catering accommodation will now open from 12th April 2021 (at the earliest), subject to government guidance.
Our pitches will now open from 12th April 2021 (at the earliest), subject to government guidance. However, our toilet and shower block is unable to open until 17th May 2021 (at the earliest). We are still able to welcome you to Beachside before 17th May 2021 if you have your own toilet and wash facilities in your caravan, motorhome or tent. Our chemical toilet disposal point, water points and motorhome service points will remain open.
Unfortunately due to government restrictions some facilities may either be limited or not available (subject to review). We will inform you of the latest updates and measures in place shortly before you are due to arrive.
Book with Confidence
We will continue to put in place all the required safety measures to keep you and your family safe whilst on holiday. We will also offer extra flexibility for all bookings in 2021, allowing you to move your holiday to another date in 2021 or 2022 if you are unable to travel due to Coronavirus, such as:
- · the park being closed by government restrictions
- · local tier restrictions (at home or in Cornwall)
- · you (or a member of your party) being required to self-isolate
Any holiday moved to an alternative date will be charged at the tariff rate in place for the new dates. We want to reassure you that you will not lose your money if you are unable to travel.
During 2021 some of the park facilities may be subject to opening or operating restrictions. We will inform you of the latest updates and measures in place shortly before you are due to arrive.
What to expect at Beachside in 2021
Due to the ever-changing situation at the moment, and regularly-updated government guidance, we will be continually reviewing how and what facilities we are able to offer. Unfortunately due to government restrictions some facilities may either be limited or not available (subject to review). We will inform you of the latest updates and measures in place shortly before you are due to arrive.
The safety of our customers, staff and local community is our highest priority and we will be putting in place extra measures to keep everyone safe. Our self-contained accommodation and well-spaced pitches provide natural social distancing. We are also lucky to have the large expanse of Hayle beach right at the front of Beachside, where there is always space to spread out. We are following all relevant government guidance, carried out a thorough risk assessment and have gained the tourism industry standard accreditation from VisitEngland.
Our teams are working incredibly hard, under frequently changing guidelines, to keep you safe and we ask for your patience and understanding during these difficult circumstances. We want everyone to have a safe and happy holiday, so we also ask you to take your own precautions and we thank you for your support in helping us all achieve this together.

We are aware of everyone’s need to escape for some relaxation at the moment, but for the safety of all our guests and staff, anyone found acting irresponsibly or repeatedly breaking the guidelines above will unfortunately be asked to leave Beachside immediately without refund.
Please show consideration for our local community. We request that you respect social distancing in local shops, restaurants and attractions. You might want to consider booking ahead for any restaurants or visitor attractions. It has been a challenging time for everyone and many local businesses have had huge challenges, change and uncertainty over the last few months. They are all excited to open and looking forward to welcoming you, but some of the changes that have been imposed on us all are very last minute – please be kind and patient!
We understand that your holiday experience at Beachside this year will be different, however we still expect you to have a fantastic time and thank you for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times. We look forward to greeting you soon!
