General

  • Family owned for several generations
  • In a valley between Truro and Falmouth
  • Immaculate amenities including disabled and family bathrooms

With a resident otter, owls, badgers, buzzards, woodpeckers and deer, Cosawes Park must rank as one of the prettiest spots in Cornwall, tucked into a valley between Truro and Falmouth, near the village of Perranarworthal.

Owned by the same family for several generations, it’s perfect for holidaymakers looking for a site with top-notch facilities but no unnecessary bells and whistles; there’s no noisy clubhouse or busy playground, just oodles and oodles of drop dead gorgeous Cornish countryside to explore. The site can also accommodate motorcyclists (but no hens or stags, please – peace rules here).

The immaculate ablutions block has toasty underfloor heating, plus separate disabled and family bathrooms. There’s a farm stall selling high quality local produce a five-minute walk away and several good foodie pubs nearby. The site also has super-fast wifi.

    What a lovely site:- facilities were excellent, spotlessly clean and no close down for cleaning so no race to the showers! The washing up area was always spotless. Large level pitches. Water and electric near the pitch. Free Wifi and good connection. Our dog Issey thought the dog walking area was excellent a river for her splish splash splosh and swim, fields to have a good run and we mean run!
    The location is excellent for visiting Cornwall and just off a main road so no Cornish lanes. We only live 1 hour away and felt we were miles away from home. The staff are friendly and informative. Excellent site we will return.

    Lovely clean facilities - some of the nices showers we have used.
    Easy transport access (buses every half hour) to Falmouth and Truro (we were in a motorhome)
    Great dog walking area complete with paddling stream and plenty of space
    Quiet area great for relaxing
    Enjoyed a lovely meal at local pub The Norway, which is in walking distance.
    The later times to be able to arrive - 8 o’clock was very useful as we did a lot of sightseeing in the day before arriving

Ah, very many thanks for some kind comments and positive feedback.

Excellent facilities but things to think about before you book. 17/07/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Judith F. Confirmed

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

    Lovely clean well maintained site, almost new, spotlessly clean toilet and shower facilities and laundry area. Ideally situated on a bus route (approx 1/4 mile walk to bus stops) to both Truro and Falmouth. Lovely walks close to the site.

    Disliked: 

    Although most of the pitches on the field were empty, we were put on the pitch in a far corner, under the only tree on the field, which blocked out all the lovely sunshine we had been blessed with during our stay, which meant that by 5 o'clock the tree had blocked out the sun. There were plenty of pitches in the middle of the field and we were puzzled as to why we had been 'shoved' in the corner out of the sunshine. The site is mainly for retired residents who we felt resented the people in motorhomes and caravans invading their space. Overall, although its a lovely site, we felt quite unwelcome. There is also a busy road directly bordering the field we were on and the road noise was quite annoying from early morning to late night.

From the manager...

Ooooer!

So sorry to hear of your dislikes, though thank you for adding some comments which I am able to respond to positively hopefully.

Gosh it bothers us enormously that you felt unwelcome! I'm not certain when you say 'residential' to whom you refer. We have seasonal pitches which are occupied by persons coming and going (who by the nature of seasonal pitches tend to be older) but these are not fully residential. Then we do have our residential park homes, but cannot imagine you having any contact with them as it's very separate from the campsite. We're certainly horrified if you felt anyone here made you feel unwelcome. I would invite you to perhaps send us an email with anything more specific which we can deal with.

Pitchup booking system is linked to our own via something called an API. A bit of software that searches our availability for a spot and places your booking on the first pitch we have available (number consecutive). This is how you arrived on the pitch you did. Technology did it all for you without any intervention from a human! So no-one here 'shoved' you anywhere, for any perceived reason. It's a real shame you didn't say anything about the pitch when you arrived as we absolutely would've given you every opportunity to choose one you would've been happy with. Message to anyone reading this .... if we have another pitch available we're very happy for you to have whichever you want! Or, if you visited us previously, give us a call to reserve the specific pitch you want or add a note to our pitchup booking asking for a specific pitch. if it's available we're very happy for you to have it!

We can't obviously do very much about the road, which I wasn't aware of being quite as you describe but fully respect your description if that's how you felt.

Overall I'm glad you would still recommend us to your friends and look forward to welcoming them.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. Good or less so, we look forward to them all and improving our experience where we are able to.

    excellent area for walking dogs - lovely clean showers and toilets

    Disliked: 

    there is a bus service to Falmouth but very expensive unless you buy daily or weekly pass it cost £8 per person return !!!

From the manager...

Ouch! I didn't realise the bus was that expensive myself! Blimey!! I guess the lesson is indeed to buy a longer pass if you're with us for a length of time. There is a branch line train station quite close to us at Perranwell that has a small car park so that might also be a cheaper option. It's a lovely journey too across various viaducts both into Falmouth or Truro.
Thanks anyway for an otherwise lovely review. Look forward to welcoming you on another occasion.

Excellent site for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. 23/06/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Nigel P. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

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

    A peaceful setting surrounded by trees and fields which was kept neat, tidy and clean with the grass bring nicely mowed. The washing facilities were also warm and clean and only a short walk from our generous pitch. There was also plenty on bins for general waste and recycling which was very much encouraged, together with a great attitude toward the environment. The free WiFi was also reliable with a strong signal. The lack of noisy children running around was also very welcome as most of those on site appeared to be couples. The overall atmosphere was one of tranquility.

    Disliked: 

    The site has a minor road running along its side with the occasional noisy car disturbing the peace.

From the manager...

Oh how we love to come in on a Monday morning to such lovely and kind words!
Thank you sincerely for taking the time and for such lovely positive feedback.
The road, as you suggest, is a minor road but can see some traffic during the day. Usually locals using it as a bit of a cut-through. Irritating but hopefully not spoiling.
Thanks again :)

Directions


We are situated off the A39 between Truro and Falmouth, with good access from the main road. From Truro, take the second right turning after the Norway Inn (on your right). Coming from the Falmouth direction, take the left turning after Cornish Garden Nurseries (which is on your right as you drive down the hill from Treluswell).

Local attractions

The southwest is stuffed with things to do – too many to list – and Cosawes Park is convenient for all the top attractions.

Many guests give into the temptations of the award-winning Eden Project, whose utopian greenhouse biomes transport visitors to tropical rainforests, Mediterranean olive groves and other exotic locations; other patches of paradise can be found at the various National Trust gardens nearby.

Slither down to the atmospheric Lizard peninsula for stunning coastal scenery and gorgeous little fishing villages. Head a little further and you can tick Land’s End off your list too; you’ll find a handful of decent attractions, shops and eateries clustered on the headland.

Otherwise, there are family theme parks aplenty; both Flambards and the Crealy Great Adventure Park come highly recommended. Kids will also love DairyLand Farm World, where they can make lots of furry friends, get to grips with the mini tractors and romp around the soft play zones, or Paradise Park wildlife sanctuary, which also has a great jungle barn indoor play centre.

Henry VIII had impeccable taste in picking out locations for his fortresses, and Pendennis Castle in Falmouth is no exception. It has fab views, impressive interactive exhibitions and a good tearoom (natch). Nearby, on the harbour front, is the Maritime Museum, where you can find out all about the seafaring heritage of Cornwall.

Finally, the area surrounding Cosawes Park is naturally blessed when it comes to outdoor pursuits: this section of coast has excellent sailing, as well as good walking and cycling in all directions. Try Bissoe Cycle for a good range of bikes and trailers for hire, and trails that run along converted tramroads and railway lines.

Must see

  • National Maritime Museum Cornwall (4.3 miles)
  • Pendennis Castle (5.0 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (5.7 miles)
