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…

  • Liked: 

    Really liked th site, really friendly staff and the pitches were some of the biggest I have stayed on. Plenty of room for caravan, awning and car. Also very dog friendly and within reasonable driving distance of plenty of Cornish attractions. Would definitely visit again, it was great value for money.

    Disliked: 

    Shower facilities were slightly disappointing as I had to air most days for a shower. It would be nice if they were updated but do what they need to if you catch them at the right time.

reasonably priced, basic base camp site, nice staff 21/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jody W. Confirmed

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

    The camp site was spacious, a in a good central location to use as a base camp. I would say that it is good value for money for a basic campsite. The pitches were well sized and suitable for our needs and also at the lower end of the field which meant our children had space to play without me worrying. if we were to come again i think we would perhaps book one of your static caravans.

    Disliked: 

    The "paths" to the electric pitches stopped about a quarter of the way down to the field which meant during the rainy weather it made it quite difficult to get to our pitch and we got stuck in the mud on a number of occasions, the facilities were basic, i felt that there wasn't enough washers/ dryers for the size of the campsite even the lady on reception said she couldn't keep could of how many washer tokens she had sold it was that many. The play area was very basic and more orientated to older children which didn't help us with younger ones. Also being the mother of two toddlers (1 &2) and an amateur camper some form of bathing for smaller ones would be massively beneficial. There was also a few tents pitched at the top end of the field who had younger children with them who continuously stood in the middle of the road stopping cars. Although I understand this may be out of your control i feel it may be beneficial to inform guests to be more aware of "traffic" around the campsite.

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.
