General

  • Family owned for several generations
  • In a valley between Truro and Falmouth
  • Immaculate amenities including disabled and family bathrooms

With a resident otter, owls, badgers, buzzards, woodpeckers and deer, Cosawes Park must rank as one of the prettiest spots in Cornwall, tucked into a valley between Truro and Falmouth near the village of Perranarworthal.

Owned by the same family for several generations, this is a top pick for holidaymakers looking for a site with top-notch facilities but no unnecessary bells and whistles; there’s no noisy clubhouse or busy playground, just oodles of gorgeous Cornish countryside to explore.

The site can also accommodate motorcyclists (but no hens or stags, please – peace rules here). Peace is the case if you're here without kids too, as a small area away from the main field is set aside specifically as an adults-only and child-free zone.

The immaculate ablutions block has toasty underfloor heating, plus separate disabled and family bathrooms. There’s a farm stall selling high quality local produce a five-minute walk away and several good foodie pubs nearby. The site also has super-fast wifi.

    Beautifully laid out and kept site. The facilities block is quite possibly the best that I've ever encountered.....well thought out, warm and kept scrupulously clean.We weren't happy with our choice of pitch when we arrived and it was changed straight away, no problem. Lovely peaceful site, loved listening to the owls at night.

Excellent site, fabulous clean facilities and good pitches. 31/08/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jane H. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    A beautiful, peaceful campsite in a quiet, rural location. Probably the best campsite we've ever stayed on. The toilet and shower block was clean at all times and there was an endless supply of hot water. Even though we were there over the august bank holiday, we never had to wait for a shower. There were 4 showers and 3 cubicles with wash basins which I found very useful and which I've only previously seen on the continent. Attention to detail was excellent - the brushes in each shower to get rid of excess water, the design of the shower cubicles which kept your clothes dry, 3 hooks which were really useful and little baskets attached to each shower to put your shampoo in - all really appreciated.
    The washing up facilities were also excellent. The pitches are spacious and the tent field relatively small so all pitches are fairly near the facilities. We had a really lovely 10 days here and would highly recommend.

    Disliked: 

    Not really dislikes, but suggestions ... Some of the tent pitches have to use hookups in the middle of the field which means the wires trail which isn't ideal but didn't seem to cause any major issues. I would have preferred a hookup behind the pitch.
    Also minor but would be nice to have, is an extra coat hook in the wash basin cubicles - showers have 3 which is great but only 1 in the washing cubicles. But these things are both very minor, improving on an already excellent site.

    Loved the whole thing! Lovely place to stay, quiet, with large pitches. We took our dog, there are some great walks nearby, and the field across the road has a river running through, which our dog loved...brilliant for dog walking! The showers, toilets, and laundry area were all incredibly clean. Well done and thank you to all the staff who made our stay very pleasant...... We will most definitely be back!!

    Location was brilliant, the site was everything it said it was and more. Very clean facilities, friendly but peaceful site. Not overcrowded the pitches were spacious. The grounds were well kept and very pretty making for a relaxing stay. My daughter loved the games you could borrow to play and I loved the added touch of being able to borrow and book if you decided you would like to read.
    There is a fridge, freezer and an iron and board on site in addition to the laundry facilities that we were able to use.
    Best holiday we have had in a long time we didn't want to leave.

Absolutely amazing facilities on site, fastidiously clean showers and toilets. ... 19/08/2018

    Absolutely amazing facilities on site, fastidiously clean showers and toilets.
    We loved the site itself with its peaceful country like setting and a great location to explore south west cornwall, really close to all main roads but tucked away enough that we heard no noise!
    As a parent i respected the rules on site to make everyone's stay enjoyable, the site was just bliss no noise except for the odd owl at night was magical for the kids. It was our first time camping as a family and thankfully the sites swayed my partner and we will definitely go again as a family (she was incredibly sceptic initially).

    Disliked: 

    NOT A DISLIKE! Merely a suggestion.
    I know their is ample local shops/ supermarkets nearby, but how about a tiny shop on site? Bottles of water, milk and bread perhaps? I understand why their is none as you can walk to Ponsanooth village shop in about 15 minutes or drive to asda in 8.

From the manager...

Oh gosh! What amazingly kind comments!

It's so pleasing and refreshing to hear from a family with young children that appreciate the peace and quiet! So very pleased too that we've convinced a non-camper to go with it! We've set the bar now though, so you'll have to return to us every time ;-0
Ah, the shop one again! We were due to have a mobile coffee barista visit us first thing in the morning during August (as previous years), who we were hoping to convince to load his van with some of those essentials (other than his amazing cinnamon rolls and pastries). He's not been able to visit this year due to personal reasons and he has been missed. Hopefully we'll see him again next year and address your suggestion, which we certainly don't mind you making.

Thanks for taking the time to make such kind comments.

Local attractions

The southwest is stuffed with things to do – too many to list – and Cosawes Park is convenient for all the top attractions.

Many guests give into the temptations of the award-winning Eden Project, whose utopian greenhouse biomes transport visitors to tropical rainforests, Mediterranean olive groves and other exotic locations; other patches of paradise can be found at the various National Trust gardens nearby.

Slither down to the atmospheric Lizard peninsula for stunning coastal scenery and gorgeous little fishing villages. Head a little further and you can tick Land’s End off your list too; you’ll find a handful of decent attractions, shops and eateries clustered on the headland.

Otherwise, there are family theme parks aplenty; both Flambards and the Crealy Great Adventure Park come highly recommended. Kids will also love DairyLand Farm World, where they can make lots of furry friends, get to grips with the mini tractors and romp around the soft play zones, or Paradise Park wildlife sanctuary, which also has a great jungle barn indoor play centre.

Henry VIII had impeccable taste in picking out locations for his fortresses, and Pendennis Castle in Falmouth is no exception. It has fab views, impressive interactive exhibitions and a good tearoom (natch). Nearby, on the harbour front, is the Maritime Museum, where you can find out all about the seafaring heritage of Cornwall.

Finally, the area surrounding Cosawes Park is naturally blessed when it comes to outdoor pursuits: this section of coast has excellent sailing, as well as good walking and cycling in all directions. Try Bissoe Cycle for a good range of bikes and trailers for hire, and trails that run along converted tramroads and railway lines.

Must see

  • National Maritime Museum Cornwall (4.3 miles)
  • Pendennis Castle (5.0 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (5.7 miles)
