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.

    We were really impressed with this site. Facilities were excellent and the site is well laid out and immaculate. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Motorhome service area is at the far end of the site and there is only one. This ment having to drive the entire length of the site to empty our waste water tanks. This is not ideal when full havingvto drive over speed bumps. There were no real facilities for adult lane swimming and had purchased pool tokens in advance thinking there was a standard pool on site. A dog crèche would be an excellent addition so we could use the terrace reassurance and show area.

    I stopped at Hendra Holiday Park with my partner and friend and we loved the place!
    Very family friendly and relaxed so a great mix for couples with children and people who jut want to get anyway for a few days and chill.
    What I liked the most were the fact that the alcohol prices at the bar were reasonable, the indoor pool was great with 3 big slides (if you don't buy a pass online they charge you about £3 for an hour and half which is very good).

    The evening entertainment wasent great but was aimed at family's so was ok for what it was.

    When we arrived and put our tent up we realised we hadn't brought the plugs for our blow up beds!! However there is a big Morrisons store litrally a 5 min drive away from the sight so that was a huge relief as we traveled 7 hours to get there, and just very convenient for our stay.

    The staff were friendly on arrival and the shower/toilet facilities extremely clean which was good.

    All in all we would definetly go back!!

    Disliked: 

    The only things I can complain about was the fact that as we were staying the weekend, Friday and Saturday nights were quite noisy and everyone leaving the bars going back to their tents were talking quite loudly, as we're theiron kids. So it did take us a while to get to sleep.

    Also we watched a robbie Williams tribute act, and as I personally quite like Robbie's music I was really disappointed. Honestly was just terrible. Maybe he was just having a bad night, but it wasnt good.

Overall Hendra was a great site for younger families 04/07/2017

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

    Pitch size and how clean the site was facilities were good too for a family to enjoy and staff were friendly

    Disliked: 

    Seagulls ,one actually managed to get inside our tent and help itself it was quite windy when we stayed and our pitch wasn't sheltered much .
    Entertainment was good but only if you had a young family and it seemed to last most of the night .
    The site also welcomes couples but we felt there was nothing that catered for us ,only the very short bingo session and like others we found ourselves having to leave the club after so long as we were extremely bored .It would also of been nice to have more choice of snacks maybe hot food available you could order that you could enjoy along with your beer as it is family orientated we had to leave and go get food then come back.
    Site was a little hilly in places and someone whom was disabled might struggle to access their way around in some places as myself did .

From the manager...

Thank you for your review.
It was good to see that you would recommend us and that you would visit again.

We hope to see you both soon.

Fantastic site, great facilities, pitches great and good location 26/06/2017

  • Liked: 

    Fantastic site, outdoor swimming pool is fantastic, very clean and tidy. Lifeguards on duty. Indoor pool again is great, with 3 slides there is something for all ages. A great park, arcade on site and a little football pitch our little one loved it. I would say one of the best campsites we have stayed on. Toilets and showers always cleaned multiple times a day, tent pitches are large. Shop on site, nice pub down the road. Short drive into Newquay and surrounding area. It really was a fantastic holiday. The weather helped as stayed last week.

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.
