General

  • Award-winning family park with loads to do
  • Pool complex, kids' club, bars, restaurants and takeaways
  • Evening entertainment and award-winning loos

Big definitely equals better at Hendra Holiday Park, a winner of Cornwall’s Holiday Park of the Year: excitement is guaranteed whatever the weather, thanks to the amazing range of things to do; the evening entertainment programme is chock-a-block with live bands, comedians and cabarets; and ablutions are a five-star affair (the site has even enjoyed an accolade for ‘Loo of the Year’).

The kids will turn cartwheels when they discover the large indoor and outdoor pool complex, with its flumes, river rapids, geysers and waterfalls (a small fee applies for indoor pool access), little squirts can splash around without getting flattened in a special toddlers’ area. Once they become too prune-like, the Hippo Kids' Club will take over and entertain them with treasure hunts, nature trails, karaoke, fancy dress and more. Or you can take them to the soft play area or one of the three adventure playgrounds on site.

The other facilities are too numerous to list, but take it as read that you’ll find a good number of bars, cafés, restaurants and takeaways; all manner of sports activities and competitions; plus everything you could possibly need for your stay (and anything you’ve forgotten will probably be on sale at the well-stocked supermarket). The pitches are a good size, and the fields are well designed, with proper access roads and lighting.

    The facilities were good. Thoroughly enjoyed the pizzas from Mario’s on the first night. The shop has most things you need. But Morrison’s is down the road. The showers and toilets cleaned daily.

    Disliked: 

    Wasn’t too keen on the fish and chips second night.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you liked the facilities and enjoyed your pizza at Mario's. Sorry about the fish and chips - we will pass on your feedback.

    The facilities

    Disliked: 

    Only that we were as far away from the toilet block as could be, even though there were pitches available nearer during the whole of our stay.

From the manager...

Thank you for giving us a 10. We are surprised that you said you were far away as by looking at your booking you were really close to the blocks, unless the information on the system is incorrect... Anyway, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you would recommend us,despite the problems you had. It is unfortunate that you had noisy neighbours; if you had said we would have moved you and had a word with them.

Thank you for your good review. We are glad that you liked the park and the kids had fun. Ah yes, the seagulls. They can be a pain but they are part of the package in most places in Cornwall.

Local attractions

With so much to do on site, you may find it hard to prise yourself out of Hendra’s landscaped country setting, but busy Newquay is only minutes away. Aside from its renowned beaches and surf, the town has a zoo and aquarium, great golf courses, horse riding, sailing and watersports, plus eateries of every flavour, and plenty of retail therapy if needed.

On the outskirts of Newquay, Dairyland Farm World and the Lappa Valley Steam Railway are perfect for kids and big kids alike; and if you travel a bit further, you’ll find some of Cornwall’s most popular tourist haunts, such as the Eden Project, the Tate Gallery at St. Ives, St Michael’s Mount, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Land's End and the National Maritime Museum. Hendra has teamed up with some of these local attractions to offer decent discounts to its guests, provided you book your tickets in advance.
