General

  • Family-friendly site with lots to do for all ages
  • Dogs welcome, with a dog walking fields on site
  • Kids' paddling pool, adventure playground and games room available

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, adventure playground and games room with three pool tables, proper sized table tennis tables (for essential tournaments), crazy golf, driving and shooting games, and gift machines (perhaps helpful to bribe/console runners up at table tennis).

Naturally the grownups are smartly catered for too: as well as the spacious sunbathing terrace, non-kids have a bar, restaurant, takeaway and shop for the essentials, a tennis court, 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…

Clean facilities, friendly staff and easy to find everything 06/09/2017

    We loved the location of the park as it was in the middle of all the lovely landmarks, how friendly the staff were. The kids loved the heated pool and the nights in the club house. The food was well worth th money and very scrummy.

    Disliked: 

    Not many dislikes we were pitched up on a slight hill so when it rained which it did we all our stuff got wet in side the tent, the WIFI was was available all round the park, if it was it didn't work where we were.

    Lovely area
    Pool great
    Park area good
    Laundry facilities fine but only accepts old £1 coins
    Well looked after

    Disliked: 

    Wifi no connection
    Arcade dissapointing half machines didn't work and the ones that did stole our money :(
    Signage could do with updating
    Not a great amount to choose from but stocks most basics
    As I run online businesses I did in fact choose the site as it stated free wifi so I could keep an eye on my company whilst away but once there couldn't get wifi had to cut the holiday short due to a work emergencythat I couldn't sort without the wifi so left 6 days early and had to drive6.5 hours no kind of refund offered after explaining to the young man I assume was in charge as he had checked us in

    So got to spend 3 days out of 10 nearly £400 :(

    Took hours trying to pitch the tent as none of the pegs would go in as iassume everything under the soil was concrete

    This site is brilliant!!! honestly they have everything you need and more. great pitch size 8m by 8m. friendly staff and ready to help all the time. Shop on site for your milk, bread, camping equipment if needed and everything you get in your local shop. We we're never waiting for a toilet or shower and everywhere was clean. amusement arcade is good. Pool is heated so you can go in even if it's raining. Has a bar, entertainment and pub food. Wifi is fast you can stream netflix no problem. The site is in a great central location to travel to st ives, falmouth, helston etc. Plenty to do down in Cornwall it's a beautiful place. My favourite places are st micheals mount, st ives and the minack theatre.

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)
