KEVIN & JAN WELCOME YOU TO HAWKINS BATTERY
"A Cornish Holiday Park with a Difference"
"I guarantee that within two days you will have caught Hawkins Fever and never want to leave." (Hawkins seasonal resident)
Hawkins Battery is a family-run, dog friendly holiday park in a unique location offering friendly, relaxed and reasonably price accommodation for seasonal residents and visitors.
Hawkins Battery is a former sea defence fort built around 1890 to defend Plymouth Dockyard. Situated on the Mount Edgcumbe Estate it is an ideal setting in which to unwind and a perfect base from which to visit busier parts of Cornwall.
Visitor accommodation compromises self-catering caravans amoungst the residential cottages, originally built for British forces personnel set along a meandering pathway on the lower tier and a level camping facilities situated on a quiet meadow in the upper tier of the battery.
Seasonal residents and visitors enjoy Hawkins for its peaceful atmosphere, unique military history and beautiful location in an unspolied area of outstanding natural beauty that is both near to the sea and at the heart of the countryside.
Before you book, imagine waking-up to the sound of the birds before you set out to enjoy the local area, take the foot-ferry to Plymouth or travel further afield. In the evening, envisage yourself walking to one of the local villages for a drink and bite, after which returning to your caravan, minimal outside lighting allows you to watch the stars and listen to the hoots of the owls.
