Cosawes Park: View from our pitch. Large, spacious pitches.

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.

    Disliked: 

    Would have liked some local maps us being old foggiest all

From the manager...

Thank you for your review - although we are finding the overall score of only 2/10 a bit confusing. You seem to have given us full marks for the facilities, the customer service and cleanliness, plus high scores for both our location and value for money. Apart from the lack of local maps - which we have taken note of - all of your comments also seem to be very positive and reading them it seems as though you have enjoyed your stay with us on Cosawes and would both recommend us to friends and visit again. Therefore, we can only assume that the low overall score of 2 has come about based on the lack of scores for child friendliness and accommodation - both of which are absolutely fair enough as we do not offer accommodation and we are an Adult's Only site. So, with all of that in mind we are going to confidently assume that the low overall score of 2 is more to do with the algorithm that PitchUp use when calculating the scores, and not so much a reflection on how much you enjoyed your holiday. Certainly, we sincerely do hope that your holiday is reflected in your comments and that you enjoyed your stay, and we hope that we can look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

    Very friendly and helpful staff, even came to warn us that there was to be a wedding nearby and that there would be some noise the following evening.
    Perfectly situated for both coasts.

What a fabulous review - thank you so much! We will pass your comments about the immaculate facilities and friendly, helpful staff on to the cleaning and wardening teams as they work hard to keep the site looking great and to keep guests happy. We are working on the WiFi and trying to improve it, but as you so brilliantly say - it's free and you're on holiday!!

Directions


The site is 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 Theme 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.
