  • Family-owned for several generations; adults only
  • In a valley between Truro and Falmouth
  • Immaculate amenities including disabled 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, just oodles of gorgeous Cornish countryside to explore. The site can also accommodate motorcyclists (but no hens or stags, please – peace rules here). Please note that this site is for adults only. The immaculate ablutions block has toasty underfloor heating, plus separate disabled bathrooms. There’s a farm stall selling high quality local produce a five-minute walk away and several good foodie pubs nearby.

Electric hardstanding touring pitch (comfort)

Liked: Liked the peaceful surroundings and the local bus service to Falmouth, Truro and beyond. Big fully serviced pitches. Clean and warm facilities. Two very nice local pubs within walking distance, the Norway Inn did fantastic Sunday Carvery, very good all round stay.

Disliked: None.

From the manager: Thank you for your review. Good to hear that you enjoyed your Easter weekend with us, and that you had a chance to sample the Norway for a Carvery! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Electric hardstanding touring pitch (comfort)

Liked: Friendly reception, clear instructions both before and on arrival and excellent facilities including the pitch and toilets/showers. Walking distance to a couple of pubs.

Disliked: I cannot think of anything I did not like about this campsite. I only wish we had booked to stay longer than one night.

From the manager: Thank you for your review. It is fabulous to know that you enjoyed a great stay with us, if only for one night. Hopefully we can look forward to welcoming you back again in the future for a longer stay.

Electric hardstanding touring pitch (comfort)

Liked: Smallish compact site. All facilities present and well maintained. Pleasant warden. Excellent location for visiting many local attractions. Overall, we would be happy to stay here again.

Disliked: Some hardstanding pitches might be rather small or awkwardly shaped for very large caravans and towcars. Fine for us with our campervan. There was major ongoing daily activity to upgrade the grass pitches during our stay (late March 2024) so some noise and vehiclemovements during the day (though we knew this would be so before we arrived).

Recommend to friends Visit again

From the manager: Thank you for your review, equally complimentary about our facilities, location and friendliness of staff, and fair about the ongoing redevelopment works. We are pleased that you say you would come again, and hopefully when we next welcome you it will be to a completed redevelopment and some fabulous new hardstanding pitches, perfect for all sizes of unit. Many thanks again, Cosawes.

Would definitely stay on this very peaceful and clean site again soon!

Local attractions

The southwest is stuffed with things to do, 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. 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.
