Gnome World Holiday Park: Tent and touring pitch with optional electric

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 site 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 Holiday Park 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…

  • Liked: 

    The site was very easy to find, well sign posted. Check in was very swift no waiting around at all. Very pleased with the pitch sizes, absolutely loads of room and didn’t feel crammed in. The site was very clean and tidy and had all amenities. Plenty of space for kids to play football with a nice play area. Location is perfect to visit towns and beaches in the area.

    Disliked: 

    There were only 3 toilets and 4 showers and no where to get dressed or move out of the way other than standing by the sinks. Slightly bigger shower block with more room to get ready would be a great improvement

    The park was exactly fantastic. We had plenty of space around us for my son to run around without causing havoc to other guests. The play park was lovely, and was loved by my 5 year old, and was suitable for older and younger children. The shower and toilet blocks were spotless. Cleaned regularly throughout the day which made us feel safer during the pandemic. All the staff were lovely and checking in was easy and simple. The park was central to many places and everything was in a short drive away. Thank you so much for having us, we will definitely be back soon!

    Surprised us how good it was because price wise it was cheaper than many in Cornwall, we were on field 3, shower / toilets brilliant, everywhere was clean, it is a large site but found noise etc' minimal, the staff I encountered were really nice, the site is away from coast but central to everywhere, a nice kids playground, a great place for dog to walk, I had wifi 02 / gff, on tablet n phone and always had reception so marking 5 on that, we will be going back to this site !!

    Disliked: 

    For the cost it's hard to be churlish over, I would prefer the non electric pitches to be marked out, electric are ! , we personally had people camp to close to us either side whilst them having room to pitch, you do get a big expanse of grass in front of pitch with no one in front, so well open aspect, a sloping site in parts but roads down the middle well away from your pitch, any rain you're not stuck,

Local attractions

Gnome World Holiday Park 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.

If poss plan plenty of time at the beaches of both the north and 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.
