General

  • Spacious site near the centre of Cornwall
  • Easy access to the beaches of the north and south coasts
  • Pubs, restaurants and shops all nearby

Gno what? If you fancy a friendly, clean and quiet campsite in the open countryside of Cornwall, a short drive from the north coast's fab surf at Newquay and with a National Nature Reserve on the doorstep, you should give scenic Gnome World a whirl.

The seven-mile Goss Moor Trail is opposite the park for easy ambles or bike rides along its flat terrain, part of the Goss Moor National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest for a spot of wildlife watching a quick walk from your pitch.

By car, the beaches of Newquay and the north coast – Mawgan Porth, Crantock, Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach – are within a few minutes' drive, and the ports and coastline of the south, such as Mevagissey and Fowey, not much further.

There's plenty of room on this spacious site for family games, alongside a well-equipped play area for little imps, a well-maintained toilet and shower block with disabled facilities near the touring and camping field, and a token-operated launderette.

Pubs, convenience stores and restaurants are within walking distance and a shop is also on site to pick up essentials – yes, you can buy your own gnome here to take home…

    Big plots

    Disliked: 

    Could do with a bigger toilet block, two sinks is not much, if the site was full, and would not say they was hundred percent clean. Also grass on the pitch’s could do with being cut a bit more, as very long.

Nice relaxed spacious site31/08/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Nice big site. Plenty of space per pitch not crowded by others.
    Open spaces and views were nice.
    Pleasant welcome to the site.
    A place to relax.
    Quite near for visiting local area.
    Few amenities in nearby village which was nice.
    Nice to have laundry and freezer facility
    Loved having wifi - excellent (this should happen everywhere in this day and age)
    Excellent childrens play area

    Disliked: 

    The fact that users from other fields on the site drove to the toilet blocks and made them oversubscribed. I think this was because it was a lovely new toilet/shower block and a little nicer than blocks on other fields. Consequently there could be queues for toilets/showers and they were left rather dirty by these "visitors" from other fields.
    Recycling facilities could have been a little better signposted - and more emphasis on being environmentally friendly (e.g. ensure all taps do not run constantly etc)

    Fantastic location to visit our favourite places. On site shop was very useful. Staff were friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet/Shower facilities could do with improvements such as could be cleaner and the showers did not stay in long.
    Also I feel in the future there could maybe be some sort of entertainment/club for guests.

Directions


Located alongside Goss Moor, Gnome World Holiday Park is found in the village of Indian Queens. We are clearly signposted off the main A30.

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

Gnome World is peacefully placed away from the main tourist trail of Cornwall, but cunningly sited for easy access to all the best attractions of the county's north and south. The Crealy Great Adventure Park and Newquay Zoo are both less than seven miles away.

We'd recommend a week each if poss at the beaches of the north and then the south: at the north, head for the world-famous surfing beaches of Newquay including Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach, both of which have surf shops for kit hire and lessons.

If you don't fancy plunging into the foamy depths, Porth beach, also at Newquay, doesn't allow surfing in the summer season so has a quieter family feel.

To the south, Mevagissey and Fowey are both popular ports with visitors, Mevagissey for its historic harbour and Fowey for yacht spotting and a trip on the passenger ferry to Polruan or back to Mevagissey.

On land, there's loads to do too, like exploring Cornwall's old tin mines, part of a World Heritage Site or having a Cornish pasty and ice-cream in every old fishing village dotted along the coast.

Seafood should be sampled in Padstow and art in St Ives too, or spend a day at Cornwall's best known attractions, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, both easy to get to from Mevagissey and Fowey.

If you fancy a flight, take a helicopter ride to the beaut Isles of Scilly from Newquay.
