Coast & Country Parks is family owned by Ian & Francesca James (Brean Beach Holiday Parks Ltd.) Having started with their first park in Somerset in 1988 they have brought the same ethos to each park ever since, now owning three parks across the South West from ‘the coast to the country!’

We aim to showcase the very best the South has to offer, from the golden beaches of Somerset, to the rolling hills of Tamar View and the woodland retreat which is Notter Bridge.

We are a close-knit team and you will quickly realise the sense of community and relaxed atmosphere we aim to deliver across all three parks.

Our parks are perfectly positioned to explore all the South West has to offer. Our Yellow Sands Holiday Park in Brean, Somerset is right in the centre of the Brean action, private access to the golden beach but also central to travel to surrounding towns, villages and places of interest. Both Notter Bridge and Tamar View Holiday Parks are positioned on the Devon and Cornwall border, perfectly sited in the centre of all the famous Cornish and Devon sites. From a trip to the beach or a visit to the local towns like Looe.

We often host owner events such as BBQ’s or Partys where all our owners can enjoy some great company!


James Family



Hello, we are Ian & Francesca James, owners of The James Group of companies. We first started in the holiday park industry in 1988, since then the business has gone from strength to strength, adding more holiday parks and extending into the South West, where we have always enjoyed holidaying in Caravans and visiting with our two boys David and Christopher.

You will often see us on the parks as we enjoy visiting Devon and Cornwall, the beaches and coast, villages and towns as well as walking in the stunning countryside which surround our lovely parks, enjoying Plymouth Gin and local pubs as well as the scrumptious cream teas.



Clare is more often or not the person you will see upon arrival as she deals with all things office related, sales enquires and organising the holiday home owners events! You will always be greeted with a friendly welcome.  With an extensive background in the holiday home industry Clare is always happy to show you around the park and answer any queries.

Clare has lived in Cornwall for a number of years and likes nothing better than getting some good Cornish fresh air walking along the coast, enjoying some local fresh fish & chips just down the road in Looe or indeed visiting the many places of interest.  



Tim deals with the Maintenance and Development projects across the parks. You will see him on a daily bases mowing the grass, planting, carrying our repairs, organising the Maintenance team and making sure the  holiday  parks are maintained to a high standard, not to mention planning the new development work in the pipeline.

Tim  has a wealth of maintenance experience and happy to share and give advice to our holiday caravan & lodge owners. Tim enjoys lots of walking both coastal and countryside, so he is definitely the person to ask if you want some recommendations of where to get out and about with your walking boots on!

Maintenance Team




As you can see, our Cornwall parks have come a long way! We made sure to keep the beautiful landscapes and locations almost untouched so our holiday home owners can experience the true beauty of Cornwall from the comfort of their holiday home. We also offer the same luxury from our Brean Beach Holiday Park where owners can enjoy miles of Golden Coast in Somerset.

The main thing we wanted to instill into our holiday parks is the family and friends element. With many holiday parks boasting theme parks, kids activities and more, we wanted to create somewhere where our guests can completly escape the hustle and bustle of these parks and the busy lives we all live. 

Creating a close knit team which you will become to know very well, both Clare and Tim are our park managers who you will see welcoming you into the parks, helping with any questions, manning the office and waving you goodbye when you leave for a trip to the Cornwall coast! Our owners Ian and Francesca also play a very hands on role in the parks attending owners events and getting to know everyone on park… creating a great group of friends!
