General

  • Family-friendly site in the Cornish countryside next to a Fun Park
  • Newquay beach, steam railway and Eden Project within 20 minutes' drive
  • Discount entry to Fun Park with petting zoo, play barn and pony treks

Ah the Cornish countryside… The roll of the surf, the call of the chough bird and the purring hum of the alpacas…You’d normally find the latter in Latin America but that’s one of the many special things about at a stay at Springfield Fun Park.

Bag a berth on this green site, five minutes’ drive from the village of St. Columb Major, and you get discounted access to everything going on next door at the Fun Park for the duration of your stay (up to seven days). You might need that long to meet the alpacas, Rolo, Morgan and Zeus, greet Bill the goat, bond with the bunnies, pony-ride your way round the park’s quartet of lakes and ancient woodland and hurtle about on the wooden castle, trampolines, slides and go-karts in the play barn. You can also take a puffing, chuffing, tooting train ride round the park, a crowd-pleaser for the smaller visitors but also giving their loving parents a much needed sit down.

The café serves drinks, hot meals and snacks between 10am and 4.30pm, making it a handy choice for a late breakfast or an early dinner. When the day-trippers depart at night, there’s nothing finer than sizzling up an outdoor feast on a barbecue, gazing at the night sky and listening out for the occasional owl (the alpacas turn in early, apparently).

    Wonderful location. Close to Padstow and the coastal area which we love but also a perfect base to explore the whole of Cornwall.
    The caravan was extremely comfortable and well equipped and very reasonably priced.
    The fun park is a lovely place for young children - ideal for wet days and a lovely place to play when on site.
    The manager and staff were lovely and could not have done more for us.
    A wonderful holiday.

    Amazing! We booked this as a last minute getaway for the last week of the school holidays and were a little unsure of what to expect, but the Springfield campsite and Play Barn were all I could have wished for and more to keep the kids happy and busy for the week. My children are 13,11 & 10, and it took us all week of "just popping over for an hour" to be able to have a go on everything and then go back for more! They loved the horses, alpacas, lambs, miniature pigs, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and goats, the assault course, the zip line, the trampolines, the rowing boats, the go-carts, the enchanted forest, the woodland walk horse ride and the best thing ever - the drop slide!

    Another complete bonus for us was that the owner Steve is Coeliac, and so is my daughter - their onsite cafe provided lots of gluten free options and were very careful in their preparation areas so there was no chance of any cross-contamination (the biggest problem for Coeliac's).

    The campsite was lovely and quiet - end of the summer season, and it was a fantastic base for exploring Cornwall. Loved enjoying the sunsets and staying in the caravan meant that we didn't have to worry about the weather at all.

    Thank you so much to Steve and his team - we had a brilliant holiday x

    A quiet site....central to lots of places that we visited.
    Clean and tidy site.
    Plenty of hot water for showers and pots.
    Good value for money.
    Would definitely return and recommend this site.

    Disliked: 

    The showers and toilets together were a great idea....but some separate toilets would help the queue of people in a mornings.
    Unfortunately some people don’t clean up after themselves in the shower/toilets which made at least one of the shower units unusable....which is no fault of the site but of the campers themselves.

    good location close to Newquay and other surf spots. There is an indoor fun park which costs £6.0/day. There is an outdoor space too but the weather did not allow us to use it.

    Disliked: 

    We understand that for people staying over 7 days the funpark is free. We think it would be great if it is included in the price of camping. Separate showers and toilet would be nice as the floor was always full of water.

Local attractions

Alongside forays into the Fun Park, there’s a fine spread of family activities and attractions close by. For a quick trip, go to see the owls at close quarters at the Screech Owl Sanctuary, five minutes’ drive away. For further wildlife spotting, it takes around 15 minutes to walk the trail through wide open heathlands and wetlands at the Goss Moor Nature Reserve, home to roe deer, butterflies and shrikes. A similar distance away, see more beasts at the aquarium and zoo in Newquay.

The town’s a magnet for surfers and watersportsers of every stamp, so get down to the beach if that’s your bag, or take a short clifftop trek along the South West Coast Path to the quieter Whipsiderry beach for rockpooling and cave exploring.

Up for more train time? Take the Lappa Valley Steam Railway (15 minutes) for whistling whistlestop rides through the countryside or walk and bike along the now-repurposed railway line of the Camel Trail, 18 miles of level paths and cracking views beginning 20 minutes away in Padstow.

Also 20 minutes away, and drawing visitors from all over, is the Eden Project, vast biodomes encasing an indoor rainforest; the elegant blooms of The Lost Gardens of Heligan are just over half an hour away.

Must see

  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (5.3 miles)
  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (6.1 miles)
