Golf and Country Clubs
Adjacent to our Cornish holiday park is Trevose Golf and Country Club www.trevose-gc.co.uk with its championship course and probably some of the most spectacular views from any golf course in the world. Day guests from Mother Ivey's Bay are always welcome here. For more choice for the golfers in your family, try this website www.golfincornwall.co.uk.
For walkers, the Cornwall Coastal Path beckons. It runs past the holiday park and offers fantastic views out to sea – you only have to choose whether to turn left or right! It is worth the effort in both directions... This really is walking and rambling country. The Ramblers Association is very active in Cornwall www.racornwall.org.uk and the local groups welcome guests on their regular programmes of walks. Details are on their website.
If your walking is of a gentler kind, then try the Camel Trail (the old railway line that was transformed into an amazing free recreational facility). You can join it at Padstow. If you prefer not to walk, hire a bike. It is worth it – the slope is very gentle! http://www.padstowcyclehire.com
The bird-watching is good here, especially at quieter times of the year (spring and autumn), when Cornwall becomes part of a major migration route for many species. The RSPB and the Cornwall Bird Watching and Preservation Society www.cbwps.org.uk hold regular meetings and walks for beginners and more experienced bird watchers alike. The Society owns three reserves: the Walmsley Sanctuary on the Amble Marshes near Wadebridge (just a few miles from Mother Ivey’s Bay); Windmill Farm on the Lizard peninsula; and Maer Lake just outside Bude. There are RSPB reserves at Hayle Estuary and Marazion Marsh, both in West Cornwall. Windmill Farm and Maer Lake are owned jointly with Cornwall Wildlife Trust www.cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk which also holds many events.

If you love butterflies, then you are coming to the right place. Because farming is generally less intensive than elsewhere in the UK, butterfly habitats have been preserved and we are fortunate in seeing many different species of butterfly throughout the summer. Cornwall Butterfly Conservation holds conservation events www.cornwall-butterfly-conservation.org.uk.
Things to do and places to see
Within just a few miles, there is no shortage of things to do and places to see. For the active, there are surfing schools and riding stables. Sea angling and sea cruises offer a different experience. The Tourist Information Centre in Padstow is a mine of information www.padstowlive.com.
