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.

    Exceptionally clean toilets and free showers that were always hot.

    Very pleasent site situated within easy reach of lots of interesting places and activities, etc.

    The free Wi fi connection was good.

    Although we didn’t use the laundry, pot washing area or the disabled facilities we were impressed with these areas, and again they were spotlessly clean and well laid out and furnished.

    The staff were friendly. The warden Sue lives on site, and was very helpful and available.

    Disliked: 

    The water tap nearest to our pitch was a bit difficult to access with a roller water container because of a step around it, but there were others still quite near that were easier to access.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind and lovely review. I'll look to see which pitch you were on and see if we can address your point about the water tap. Thanks very much for pointing this out.

    Very clean. Novice campers so a good site for beginners

LOL ... we love novice campers as we enjoy setting the bar high!!!
Thank you for making some kind comments. A little sad we only score 6/10 on customer service and wonder what we did wrong on this occasion?! Customer service is something so very subjective often, we can only keep trying to improve and are sorry we were not able to provide you with excellent service on this occasion.
Thank you for your otherwise kind review.

From the manager...

Having checked with the team on duty during your stay, I concur with your dislike!
I'm very sorry you found yourself next to a noisy couple. I understand a colleague dealt with them (insisted they found another campsite!) as soon as you drew attention to the issue, so hopefully we resolved the issue quickly and to your satisfaction.
Otherwise thank you for your very kind scores.

Directions


We are situated off the A39 between Truro and Falmouth, with good access from the main road. From Truro, take the second right turning after the Norway Inn (on your right). Coming from the Falmouth direction, take the left turning after Cornish Garden Nurseries (which is on your right as you drive down the hill from Treluswell).

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)
