General

  • Award-winning two and a half miles from Perranporth
  • Across 21 acres of colourful Cornish landscape
  • Three fishing lakes, wildlife areas, playground and spotless amenities

A ‘national treasure’ is just one of the many (many) comments from very (very) happy guests of award-winning Perran Springs Holiday Park at Perranporth in Cornwall, of which it might respectfully be suggested that if you, the other half, the kids and the dog don’t have a rollicking good time, you might need to have your pitching licence revoked.

Location first: Perran Springs is two and a half miles from Perranporth, five minutes’ drive from Newquay and centrally placed to explore award-winning beaches, family days out and a whole heap more. It covers 21 acres of secluded sheltered valley, with countryside views from the site, and flowers, shrubs and trees blazing colour across it.

And now for activities… The park has three lakes for coarse fishing, all stuffed with tench, bream, rudd, roach and carp of up to 20lb. The site shop sells tackle, rods and other fishing bits; angling expert Andrew is on hand for advice. (You'll need a permit to fish: collect at reception.)

Perran Springs is nature conscious and has set up stuff all over to encourage local wildlife and curious minds, including a nature pond, nature trail and a butterfly bug, and bee garden; look out on and around the site for moths and lizards too. If the kids still need to let off steam, the playground, Fox Recreation Meadow and running around the various open spaces should tire them out nicely.

The award-winning showers and other amenities are kept ‘spotlessly clean’ (another guest accolade) and include a launderette, baby changing room, and an outdoor area for rinsing wetsuits.

Finally (woof), even the family canine will be content here, as Perran Springs is dog-friendly. The local pub, the New Inn within walking distance at Goonhavern, accepts well-behaved dogs in its beer garden.

All in all, a park to put a definite spring in your step…

    Too many rules not fexible we stayed at Devon a few days before they were lovely and helpful this site was ruled by rules

From the manager...

Dear Guest,

We are sorry to read that you found our park as having too many rules. We believe the rule to which you are probably referring, is one regarding fire safety. We asked your partner to move your camper van awning further away from the guest next to you, as you were far too close to their caravan. You did have plenty of space on a large corner hardstanding pitch, so could easily move the small drive-away awning. However, your partner immediately became very aggressive for no reason and refused to move, and said he would be up to collect his money the morning after. However, later that day you were seen moving the awning as requested and no more was heard.

After this, you asked if you could place some wedding garments in our laundry overnight, so they would not crease as you were going to a wedding the following day. We agreed and your clothing was placed in by yourself and immediately locked in safely as requested until collected by your partner upon opening.

We did however, have complaints from several other guests regarding loud aggressive swearing coming from a gentleman in your unit one night, but it did not happen again.

Any rules on the park are there for a reason and most have been requested by local health and safety officers. We believe we are flexible where possible and are always friendly. However, like all establishments we do not accept abuse to staff by guests, when simple requests are made for the benefit of other guests staying on the park.

Best Wishes,
Perran Springs

    The site isn't too big and is very well maintained. The shower and toilet blocks were immaculate and there was never a queue (we were there the last 2 weeks of August).
    The pitches are a decent size to allow enough spacing between tents.
    The lawns were meticulously maintained and the bins emptied daily.
    The location is perfect for what we wanted, 15mins from Fistral beach, 8 mins from Perranporth and only 40mins to St Ives or Falmouth.
    Very good location for exploring the beautiful county.

    Disliked: 

    No reception for vodafone and the free wifi was very weak and only accessible around the reception building, when it connected!
    I know you want to get away from it all but data is very much essential to enjoy Cornwall as we would check weather that morning or the night before to plan our day out.
    The reception is so poor that if you didn't do it when you were away from the site it lead to the frustration on trying on the site.
    Easily rectified by repeaters or wifi boosters around the site.
    It advertises wifi but doesn't realistically deliver.
    Also there are no covered dish washing facilities, a problem in bad weather.
    Last moan is the laundry facilities aren't 24hr so if you aren't ready at 0855 for it to open at 0900 you either are stuck at site for longer or wait for the next day.

From the manager...

Dear Guest,

    Strange setup with reception and shop! When we arrived at 11am the reception was shut but a notice in window told you to go to the owners house to find someone, which we did and we were shown our pitch and dealt with quite quickly.

From the manager...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review and high score. We are pleased you found our shower facilities spotlessly clean. We are a small family run park and as such do not keep the Reception open all day during the week. However, as you mention, we are always available at the House and are pleased to see each guest personally to their pitch on their arrival.

We hope you will visit us again.

From the manager...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review and high score. The mobile signal in Cornwall can be a bit hit and miss, this is out of our control but we know it can be frustrating at times. You did have the choice to pay for an extra night and this was offered verbally to you during your stay. We are always available in the Reception or the House, so payment can either be made direct to ourselves in person, or online. We apologise if this was not made clear to you.
