General

  • Friendly park in a Cornish wildlife haven
  • Halfway between Helston and Falmouth
  • Large playground, games field, family games room and shop

Retreat to Retanna Holiday Park, where the emphasis is on friendly service and maximum R and R in quietly beautiful surroundings. There’s no rowdy entertainment or bar here, just rabbits hopping around the neighbouring fields (and there are no dogs allowed)...

The modern facilities include a smart ablutions block with free hot showers, a laundry room, fridge freezer and washing up area. There’s a large playground for the kids, a recreational field, family games room and a shop.

Let the owners know your preferences in terms of pitch location (quiet, near to the facilities or play area, etc - just use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page) and they’ll do their utmost to make your dreams come true.
Free wifi is available throughout the park.

Please note

Retanna Holiday Park Ltd is ideally suited to families and couples. The company reserves the right to refuse other bookings and / or permission to occupy units / pitches at its discretion.

We do not offer a bar or entertainment - we are a quiet park and are unable to accept all male/all female groups and groups of young persons as it is unlikely we would meet your needs.

    very clean and tidy site.. we found it very quiet but this was possibly reflective if the time of year.. The toilet and shower blocks were always clean.
    The owners were very helpful as when we first arrived we struggled to pitch due due soggy ground.. this was not too much trouble for them as they immediately assisted us.
    we will definatly be booking again..

  • Liked: 

    Badger field was a big spacious field with shelter from the wind, which was great for us as there were storms during our stay. Good basic facilities and a great central location for exploring the Lizard, Falmouth and surrounding areas.

    Loved the rabbits in the field and the free wifi was excellent!

    Disliked: 

    We had a job getting off the field after all the rain! (Not the sites fault.)

    We found it a bit tight getting into the entrance and we thought the 'warnings' and signs everywhere were a bit overkill.

    Very clean toilets and showers
    Lovely play area
    Tranquillity of the site
    WiFi which enabled us to plan trips
    Our pitch was not level so they gave us 2 pitches

    Disliked: 

    Strictly no check-in until 3.45pm

From the manager...

Thank you for adding a Review Ms G.
We are so happy you enjoyed you stay with us here at Retanna.
If we didn't apply a 3.45pm arrival time we would not be able to allow guests the extra time for packing up which guests appreciate with the 12 noon departure time. Parks that allow guests to arrive earlier have a much earlier departure time than us which means if it is damp tents do not have a chance of drying out & then need to be re-erected at home to dry, & from conversations with our guests some tents are too large for their home gardens.
We are pleased to see you would recommend to friends & visit us again.

Kind Regards

Chris & Maureen

    Nice clean site with a fair amount for kids to do but without being too overcrowded, nice and peaceful holiday

    Disliked: 

    The only dislike is the arrival time being 15 45 onwards but I understand they like to get the pitch mowed ready for your arrival

From the manager...

Thank you for adding a Review Mr C, we are pleased you would recommend to friends & visit us again.
Our arrival time is 3.45pm and departure time is midday.
Visitor’s remarks suggest a midday departure is welcome especially after poor weather as tents have that extra time for drying out. It also gives them more time to pack away & the opportunity to delay their journey a little to avoid traffic. This window offers us essential time for servicing pitches which as correctly stated includes not only mowing grass but other work such as cleaning toilet facilities, emptying waste bins etc. Our new guests would certainly not wish to arrive at a dirty unkempt park. Our reviews consistently refer to the high standard of cleanliness which further suggests our visitors appreciate the essential work that has to be carried out.

Kind Regards

We are pleased you would recommend to friends & when you visit us again please feel free to request a pitch closer to toilets & showers. Readers please keep in mind the childrens play area is close to toilets & showers & it's not possible to have one without the other.

    Liked everything about this site - a good-sized site with excellent sized pitches, we never felt cramped for space or that we had other guests too close. Facilities were always clean and fresh, as was the whole site. Very well located for exploring south and west Cornwall.

    Owners were always available and very friendly and informative. Pitch fees were excellent value for money. Free WIFI was good. Would happily stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

  • Liked: 

    Loved The Site. Great park for kids, games room for the older kids. Well kept site with clean facilities. Friendly owners. We stayed in badger field and would Def stay again.
    Site WiFi is am awesome bonus.

    Disliked: 

    Taps in toilets and washing up area. They don't stay on at all unless you have your hand on them. I understand this is to stop kids leaving them on but even 5 seconds would be fine it would them mean you didn't have to wash 1 hand at a time. I have seen before someone said about this and the response was to fill the sink, but sorry I don't want to wash my hands in a sink that people have brushed their teeth in.
    But this is the only thing I did dislike about the whole site so it is something I would have to live with If we visit again. 😊
