Pretty much everything to tickle the fancy of families and couples on a Cornish hol is at Penrose Holiday Park a couple of miles from Perranporth. It's near some of Cornwall's most splendid beaches (Perranporth and Crantock are just two in the area) for sandy days out without packs of other people, and it's firmly kid-friendly with a toddler swing, swing, climbing frame, monkey bars, climbing wall, ping pong table and slide in its playground.
It's dog-friendly too, is five miles from Newquay for those who fancy some serious surf, and has free hot showers in blocks with hairdryers and shaving points, along with family rooms and a disabled wetroom.
The family team here has thought of extra little touches to tick most people's holiday boxes, like hand hygiene gel added to the chemical disposal point, the sink in the laundry area for washing out delicates (one of the washing machines puts in its own detergent too), and the campers' kitchen with fridge, microwave and the loan of ice blocks for its chest freezer. A dishwashing area is also to hand.
For supplies, the fresh and frozen food, tipples, tobacco and post office of Penrose's local shop is a two-minute walk away: bring foodie and drinkie bits back to have evening dins and sips around the site picnic table.
And – another item that might tickle your fancy on hol – just across from the shop is local pub the New Inn, serving up meals from a fairly extensive menu; a kids' play area is here too.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Penrose Holiday Park is on the left as you enter the village of Goonhavern.
Penrose Holiday Park is fably placed to reach pretty much anywhere in Cornwall within half an hour's drive, whether you fancy theme parks like The Flambards Experience or the Crealy Great Adventure Park, Cornwall's spectacular gardens, its historic houses and its heritage of tin and china clay mining. And of course there are many many beaches...
Within a few miles of Penrose Holiday Park are two small urban areas high up on the 'Cornwall is well gorgeous' list: the town of Perranporth two miles away, with three-mile long sandy beach and its surf, and the village of Crantock three miles away, with thatched cottages, another beaut beach and the Gannel estuary.
Busier – and yet more surfier – times are in Newquay five miles away, along with several surf schools and a cinema; for shopping, nightlife and a museum, theatre and cinema, take yourself to cathedraly Truro ten miles away.
If Cornish cantering is a holiday thing too, the riding stables a few miles from the site do treks for all levels of equine enthusiasts from beginners to experienced riders. Surfboard hire, lessons, paddleboard coaching and jetski hire are all easy to access in the area too and a karting circuit is nearby.
