General

  • Award-winning family park with loads to do
  • Pool complex, kids' club, bars, restaurants and takeaways
  • Evening entertainment and award-winning loos

Big definitely equals better at Hendra Holiday Park, a winner of Cornwall’s Holiday Park of the Year: excitement is guaranteed whatever the weather, thanks to the amazing range of things to do; the evening entertainment programme is chock-a-block with live bands, comedians and cabarets; and ablutions are a five-star affair (the site has even enjoyed an accolade for ‘Loo of the Year’).

The kids will turn cartwheels when they discover the large indoor and outdoor pool complex, with its flumes, river rapids, geysers and waterfalls (a small fee applies for indoor pool access), little squirts can splash around without getting flattened in a special toddlers’ area. Once they become too prune-like, the Hippo Kids' Club will take over and entertain them with treasure hunts, nature trails, karaoke, fancy dress and more. Or you can take them to the soft play area or one of the three adventure playgrounds on site.

The other facilities are too numerous to list, but take it as read that you’ll find a good number of bars, cafés, restaurants and takeaways; all manner of sports activities and competitions; plus everything you could possibly need for your stay (and anything you’ve forgotten will probably be on sale at the well-stocked supermarket). The pitches are a good size, and the fields are well designed, with proper access roads and lighting.

not impressed by the campsite and will not use pitchup again. 20/08/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom ADRIAN E. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch (no pets)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    lots of facilities

    Disliked: 

    Site was exposed to strong wind .Unable to drive tent pegs into ground due to stones therefore tent blue away in wind and let rain in at night and blew away when out during the day.
    Our pitch was right near the entrance and the main road so traffic kept us awake at night.
    When we booked it said no dogs or pup tents but our adjacent site had 3 dogs which barked all the time you went near and they had 3 tents on their pitch.When i asked at reception they said it was ok for dogs and pup tents if we booked directly with Hendra but not through Pitchup We were on the waiting list for an electric pitch but none available but when we arrived there were dozens of electric hook up pitches.
    Our son and his friend decided to go back homeearly as the wind made it impossible to sleep in the tent so they slept in the car
    There was poor maintenance with hot water not working even when reported,some toilets didn't flush,mirror in toilets for pods were only suitable for children(low height) loose and cracked paving stones causing a trip hazard.

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

    The site was extremely clean with lots of facilities on offer, the restaurants were reasonable priced for this type of site. The ground staff were polite and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Some pitches are much smaller than others and they tried to offer us a smaller pitch than we had paid for by saying it was our fault as we had not provided our tent sizes

From the manager...

Thank you for this nice review. We are pleased you liked the restaurants and grounds staff. We do take dimensions before arrival so we can fit you on a suitable pitch as they do vary in size.

Local attractions

With so much to do on site, you may find it hard to prise yourself out of Hendra’s landscaped country setting, but busy Newquay is only minutes away. Aside from its renowned beaches and surf, the town has a zoo and aquarium, great golf courses, horse riding, sailing and watersports, plus eateries of every flavour, and plenty of retail therapy if needed.

On the outskirts of Newquay, Dairyland Farm World and the Lappa Valley Steam Railway are perfect for kids and big kids alike; and if you travel a bit further, you’ll find some of Cornwall’s most popular tourist haunts, such as the Eden Project, the Tate Gallery at St. Ives, St Michael’s Mount, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Land's End and the National Maritime Museum. Hendra has teamed up with some of these local attractions to offer decent discounts to its guests, provided you book your tickets in advance.
