General

  • Family-friendly site with lots to do for all ages
  • Dogs welcome, with a dog-walking field on site
  • Heated outdoor pool, paddling pool, playground and games room

Ever felt you really wanted to let loose? And – even better – let the kids run wild while you bask on a sun-soaked terrace in a suntrap valley, sipping a cocktail from the on-site bar? Why, one can almost hear the ice cubes clinking from here...

Don’t get uptight at the thought of Cornwall being crowded in peak season: award-winning and family-friendly Calloose Caravan Park is over eight and a half acres of countryside at Hayles near St Ives, and is designed for those who want to get away from the hordes. And dogs: the park is dog friendly with dog walking fields on site. Woof.

The park is teeming with things to do: freewheeling sprogs are free to do what they want any old time, with a kids’ paddling pool, playground, multisports and all-weather court, and a games room with pool table, driving and shooting games and gift machines.

Naturally the grownups are smartly catered for too: as well as the spacious sunbathing terrace, non-kids have a heated pool, a bar, a coffee shop, a restaurant, a takeaway and shop for the essentials, and – although the youngsters won’t be interested – a launderette, recycling point opposite the shop and chemical waste points at each toilet block.

The Calloose team prides itself on its customer service and attention to detail, and the entire park is also carefully landscaped to welcome local wildlife and flowers – even the most Xbox-gripped youngster might be persuaded to let loose…

Feel falsely advertised. Disappointed. Dark, unkempt. 18/11/2018

    The friendly guy "Bob" who was seemingly the only member of staff on site!

    Disliked: 

    The site! I arrived, the road leading down was treacherous, full of pot holes! The entire site was dark, with little to no lighting! In a nutshell nowhere did it state that the site effectively shuts down! The "low season" hours for the bar/restaurant = shut, closed! Everything except 1 rather unkempt family bathroom - was shut! It was pitch black, desolate and unpleasant! My partner actually punctured his tyre on a nail thanks to building work taking place! We paid £40 for 2 nights for a patch of grass and a grotty bathroom with no toilet roll! Wouldn't recommend, wouldn't stay again! We stayed 1 night out of the 2! Awful.

From the manager...

Agreed, we did not realise we had Pitch up still active, the site was closed but we did not want to send you away and leave you with no where to stay.
Bob would have help you out if you had complained to him on site and would have opened a different bathroom.

Don't think you would have got a nail in tyre from the work we were doing as we were not using nails or screws

    We complained about our noisy neighbours but park staff just suggested we move pitch rather than dealing with it. No recycling bins. Wi-fi speed shockingly bad (we switched back to using 4G)

    Pitch we were given was perfect as near to the pool, shower block and bar. Showers really clean, pool was great for my 11 year old. Park area great for the children we played cricket in the sports area loads of room.
    Had a meal in the bar food was lovely, staff friendly and really helpful too. Great entertainment Edison lighthouse were on, we were sorry we only booked for one night. Really liked it and we’d stayed at 3 other sites in our tour round Devon and Cornwall and this was the best by a mile :)

    Very impressed with the level of cleanliness, shower blocks were really good, nice and warm, nice little playground for the kiddies to play in, it felt very safe to let them roam, once it got past 11pm it became nice a quiet and was able to sleep really well, the noise beforehand wasn't excessive either,

    Toilet facilities were sometimes left in poor condition by other users. Could do with more regular staff check ups on evenings. WiFi was VERY slow - not even worth using.

Directions


Travelling to Calloose is much easier now that you have the M5 to Exeter and a motorway style dual carriageway to Bodmin. There are only 20 miles of ordinary carriageway roads remaining to our park.

Leave the A30 at the roundabout north of Hayle and drive through the town until you see the large viaduct. Drive under the first arch and turn left at the small roundabout and take the B3302 road towards Helston. Leedstown is 3.5 miles along this road. Do not follow your satnav at this point. Just before Leedstown (if coming from Hayle), turn left down Trenerth Road.

Calloose is at the bottom of the hill. Turn left onto the lane where flagpoles and signs are situated. Follow the lane until you reach the caravan park. The reception is signposted.

Calloose is located centrally within west Cornwall. St Ives is only 9 miles away, Penzance only 10 miles, Lizard Point 18 miles, and Newquay only 25 miles away. Please note that public transport is limited in this area of Cornwall.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Pack your wetsuit, your swimsuit, your walking boots and your glad rags to soak up the contrasts of beautiful and active Cornwall, with most of the main attractions within easy driving distance; and eye-watering scenery, coastline and teeny towns and villages all within reach.

You might want to throw your golf clubs and fishing gear into the car boot or caravan too: there are five spectacularly scenic golf clubs within ten miles of Calloose, from the challenging seaside course of the West Cornwall Golf Club three and a half miles away, to England’s most southerly course, Mullion Golf Club at Helston.

Fishing holidays are available all over and easy to arrange, including coarse and reservoir fishing (the rainbow trout-filled waters of Tree Meadow Trout Fishery are just half a mile from Calloose), and sea fishing from a hi-tech boat which can detect passing shoals as well as possible shipwrecks below the surface. Or venture west to the 140 or so islands of the gorgeous Isles of Scilly by ferry from Penzance or air from Penzance or Land’s End to see the capital St Mary’s or the world famous gardens at Tresco.

The beaches of Cornwall are rightly world famous and you could spend your whole hol around the cragged beauty of the north or the subtropical sands of the south. Calloose is centrally based, so pick a beach a day and work on your tan: the Towans at Hayles, three miles of golden sands, are 3.4 miles away; the surf of Praa Sands within six miles and Porthkidney/Lelant beach within seven miles (we strongly recommend some mussel foraging here).

Elsewhere within a quick drive you’ll reach beautiful Marazion – take a trip from here to the island of St Michael’s Mount – and the family-friendly surfing beaches of Portleven and Portreath.

St Ives, Cornwall’s arty capital, is just over nine miles from Calloose: the acclaimed gallery Tate St Ives to see almost 70,000 works of art from 3000 artists, including the national collection of British art. Nearby Newlyn is also known for its art and its 19th-century off with a visit to the Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, carved from the clifftop and with the feel of a Roman amphitheatre.

Must see

  • Cornwall Industrial Discovery Centre (6.1 miles)
  • Tate St Ives (6.1 miles)
  • St Michael's Mount (6.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Godolphin (2.3 miles)
  • Godrevy (4.4 miles)
