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…

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 27/05 and 14/09 (subject to weather conditions).

The pro's outweighed the con's and would definitely stay again. 07/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Very relaxed site, with a well stocked and reasonably priced shop. The pool was frequently used and highly recommended by the kids.

    Disliked: 

    We ate in the bar three times and on each occasion had a problem - cold food, order not put through and a 90 minute wait; problems were dealt with by friendly staff, but I'd rather they hadn't happened in the first place. Whilst the site is clean, it feels a little superficial (for example toilet blocks regularly mopped but floors left soaking wet).

    The owners were really nice couldn't do enough for you. Lovely clean tidy sitems. Great play area for the kids pool was warm. There is a shop stocked with your basics plus things for the kids to buy to play with at really good prices.lovely peaceful site even with children there.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to really dislike but disabled bathroom in need of a spruce up and something on the floor for when you come out of the shower so that you stand on something dry to get dressed and don't slip on the wet floor. But plenty big enough.

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)
