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.

    Ladies washrooms/toilets were out of order so had to use the male washroom/toilets, felt slightly uncomfortable.

    Everything was great, we all really enjoyed our stay. When we arrived it was pouring with rain and our allocated pitch was water logged. I went to reception after looking at other pitches that weren’t so bad, it was no problem to change the pitch to the one I chose. The shop was reasonably priced as was the restaurant. The restaurant also served good size portions. The toilet and shower block were always clean and showers were hot. We watched the broadway show one evening which was really good with a good selection of songs from all the shows. The kids enjoyed the pool, they went every day, the older boys enjoyed archery and Segway. All the staff we spoke to were all friendly, polite and happy to help, they seemed happy in their jobs, which I guess can be trying at times with so many people with so many demands. The tent pitches are all level. The park is well situated with a lot of resorts within an hours drive, so excellent for seeing as much of Cornwall as you want. Our only problem was we weren’t there long enough! I would deffinately recommend and will be going back next year but will stay longer (we only had 4 nights) :(

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.
