General

  • Family park with easy access to main Cornish attractions
  • Heated pool, sauna, spa and hot tub
  • Bar and restaurant with beer garden

Surf! And a sauna, and a bar, and a spa – and easy access to Cornwall's famed attractions like the Eden Project 14 miles away: you might want to stay at Carvynick Holiday Park for quite some time.

Ten minutes from the world-famed surf and the surf schools of Newquay, Carvynick is set in Cornish countryside among spectacular scenery, and centrally located for easy-drive day trips to the likes of St Austell, Newquay Zoo, Bodmin Moor and the Clay Trails.

In between days out exploring the local land, bask among the plentiful and well-maintained site facilities: loads is here to keep all out of mischief, including a heated indoor pool, a sauna, hot tub and spa, a badminton court (charges apply) and an indoor sports hall.

Then have an afternoon or evening in the Fox's Revenge, the Carvynick bar and restaurant dating back to the seventeenth century: have your eats and drinks inside or take them out to the peaceful beer garden.

Carvynick is pet friendly.

Please note

All units: access to the swimming pool is not included in the rate and is charged £4.00 per adult and £2.50 per child per session.

Under 21s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Week leisure passes for the pool, badminton court and the Jacuzzi are available at £20 per adult and £15 per child, for seven days of access.

Beautiful site 17/09/2017

    From the moment we arrived the service was exceptional. We were allocated pitch 12 which had wonderful views and love the fact that you have your own decking area and table and benches to the side. Shower cubicles are the best we have had on a touring site and private as you have your own key to access them.
    We had friends arrive on the Saturday and they stayed in one of the cottages which again was lovely.
    We booked a table at The Fox's Revenge for the evening. Great food, good service and a lovely atmosphere.
    We all enjoyed our stay so much that we are looking to book to go and stay for New Year.

    Staff were lovely and helpful. Nice and quiet, beautiful views and pub, although we didn't eat there, just a drink, the food looked lush and the atmosphere was really nice. Easy to find a spot to pitch up. Pool, hot tub great. Kids (4 and 1 year olds) loved the inflatables! Shower room clean. Loads to do around the site too (beaches, aquarium etc), superstores 10/15mins away, Would definitely recommend and would stay again. Had a great bank holiday weekend.

Potentially great site, let down by a few niggling issues. 29/08/2017

    Site well signposted from road. Polite and efficient reception staff. Very pretty site. Facilities constantly cleaned. Fantastic heated indoor pool and hot tub

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately not enough showers constant queues outside untill extra porta showers arrived. Silly things like nowhere to hang clothes when washing at the sinks and no plugs. No way of knowing if showers were occupied or vacant. Couldn't find dishwashing area.

From the manager...

Your feedback and review is appreciated. We do our upmost to make changes based upon customer feedback and should you return to Carvynick next summer you should be able to see a difference. An extra shower block is to be built near the main car park and during your stay you should have been told about the showers in the leisure complex. The dishwashing area is based in the laundry room.
Hope to see you return back - Jason - Park Manager

    Quiet site with plenty of space. Close to Newquay.

    Disliked: 

    Only 3 showers for whole of camping and caravan site. Portaloos with no lighting. Cannot take car on grass with tent. Staff very unhelpful

From the manager...

Thank you for the review and feedback, We have 3 showers in a new shower block in the lower section of the park and a further 2-3 showers in the leisure complex near the main reception. Open 24hrs. The portaloos were put in place to help with the volume of potential guests and to ensure we have enough toilets for the number of people on site. Before next summer another showe and toilet block is being built near the main carpark. Over the past 2 months Cornwall has had alot of rain and to ensure vehicles can exit the field we've asked people not to leave cars on the field. It's also put in place to protect the field as we spend many hours ensuring our tent field exceeds guests expectations. It's not great to hear staff haven't been helpful. If you do return back to us please let management know if guests haven't been helpful and customer services has fallen under par. Kind regards Jason - Park Manager

    Easy check in, problem with booking but soon resolved, clean and friendly place

    Disliked: 

    More showers needed and a bit more privacy in pool changing area, 11 ye old very conscious and wouldn't go in with other people as more if less open changing room!
    Location lovely but noting around the area you will need a car, if in z camper obviously limited on parking in busy places

From the manager...

Feedback and the reviews are always welcomed. More showers are being built but near the main car park and not in the leisure complex, i appreciate the feedback and will look into the changing area's as curtains aren't for everyone. We do have a family changing room should you return back to us.
More parking will be in place for next summer! It's so important we get feedback to ensure what improvements we need to make. Thank you for staying at Carvynick.

Directions


Travelling to Carvynick couldn’t be easier, with the recent improvements to the A30.

There are good rail links from across the country to Cornwall. The nearest direct line stations are at St Austell or Truro where you can find bus or taxi links.

Why not maximise your stay and beat the traffic, Newquay Airport is a short drive from Carvynick. Taxi or car hire are available at the airport.

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

The surf, sands, harbour, shops, restaurants and nightclubs of Newquay are a ten-minute drive from Carvynick Holiday Park, along with many surfing professionals in the town's surf schools to give lessons if you want to give it a go.

A more relaxed vibe can be had in Cornwall's other fishing towns and villages like Padstow, Mevagissey, Fowey and St Ives, all with smart shops, arts and craft outlets, restaurants and cobbled streets. From any town, the spectacularly scenic walks of the South West Coast Path are easily reached, while if you want a more challenging hike the moorlands of Bodmin are an easy drive away.

If you're cycling, pedal the Camel Trail from Bodmin to Padstow or along St Austell's clay trails a few miles from the site; bike hire for all sizes is available at both.

The famed Eden Project is 14 miles away, and it's also easy to get to a wide range of family attractions like The Flambards Experience, Dairyland, Crealy Great Adventure Park, the Blue Reef Aqarium and Waterworld.

Must see

  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (2.8 miles)
  • Newquay Zoo (4.9 miles)
  • Blue Reef Aquarium (5.4 miles)

  • Trerice (2.8 miles)
