River Kennal

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, this is a top pick 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 of gorgeous Cornish countryside to explore.

The site can also accommodate motorcyclists (but no hens or stags, please – peace rules here). Peace is the case if you're here without kids too, as a small area away from the main field is set aside specifically as an adults-only and child-free zone.

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.

Tough cookie to please!
Seriously, thank you for taking the time to review us. Every one is important to us. We think there needs to be a little clarification with some of the scoring with Pitchup. Does one give a score on the 'quality' of services provided (Like the AA do) or the 'amount' of services provided?! I think you've probably scored us on the latter, which we would agree with, as you do say 'high quality services'. To anyone just looking at the scores on the doors though it's not always clear.
Thank you though for a kind and honest review. Much appreciated.

    Very well organised site with clean modern facilities. Helpful staff on arrival and even trying to get the water supply sorted due to frozen pipes.

    Disliked: 

    With a twin axle 8m caravan the site layout at first sight was a little daunting but it worked out ok.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for these kind comments. The team very much appreciate the feedback.
Indeed, the pitch you were on (pitch #6 for those reading this) can be a challenge for a biggie!
Glad it was sorted though and that your stay was enjoyable.

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)

National Trust

  • Trelissick Garden (4.3 miles)
  • Cornish Mines and Engines (6.3 miles)
