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 we shall respectfully suggest that if you, the other half, the kids and the dog don’t have a rollicking good time, you might need to have your camping licence revoked.
Location first: Perran Springs is two and a half miles from the fab and family-friendly beach at Perranporth, five minutes’ drive from Newquay and centrally placed to explore whatever aspect of Cornwall tickles your fancy, from award-winning beaches to art galleries to family days out. It’s spread across 21 acres of a secluded sheltered valley, with the best of Cornish countryside views from the site, and flowers, shrubs and trees blazing colour across it.
And now for activities… gillty of always casting off on hol? The park has three lakes for coarse fishing on a grand scale: the Mayfly, Butterfly and Dragonfly lakes, all stuffed with specimens including tench, bream, rudd, roach and carp of up to 20lb. The site shop sells tackle, rods and other fishing bits and bobs, with angling expert Andrew on hand to give advice.
Perran Springs is also a nature conscious park and has set up bits and pieces all over to encourage both local wildlife and curious minds, including a nature pond, nature trail and 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 children’s playground, Fox Recreation Meadow and running around the various open spaces should tire them out nicely.
The park’s award-winning showers and other amenities are kept ‘spotlessly clean’ (another guest accolade) and include dishwashing sinks, a launderette, baby changing room, and an outdoor area for rinsing off your wetsuit. Pitches, not at all surprisingly, win high praise too for their generous size, well-maintained look and secluded feel.
Finally (woof), even the family canine will be content here, as Perran Springs is dog-friendly and has lots of opps around for walks. 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…
