Grassy pitches

General

  • Quiet family-run park with shop and summer shuttle to the beach
  • Surfing, horse riding and rockpooling within five minutes' drive
  • A 45-minute drive from the Eden Project

Surfing for experts and learners alike… and horse riding… and safe beaches for swims, paddles and walks… and bike trails and castles… and cliffs. If you reckon all that is setting the bar too high and that no one spot could tick all these boxes all at once, the team at Higher Golla Touring Park can happily tell you otherwise.

This family-run park in north Cornwall is a five-minute drive from Perranporth, where surf schools, wave action and wide sandy beaches combine for all-round coastal hol heaven. It’s a quiet site with country views, but easy access to roads like the A30 and A390 puts many of Cornwall attractions are within an hour’s drive.

Higher Golla is also a pretty place to come back to in between your jaunts, lined with trees and splashed with colour from the many flowering plants. You can’t reach out and pick your dinner from the branches, but the next best thing is right on site: a shop selling groceries, tinned food and camping supplies.

To make things even easier, the helpful Higher Golla folk run a shuttle bus down to Perranporth beach in the summer months, so no need to stress about fitting picnics, footballs and inflatable flamingos in your rucksack…

As well as a brace of surf schools and a seawater swimming pool on the beach, Perranporth has a fab combination of rockpools for exploring and soft sands for, well, everything you want to do on the sand. Thanks to the nearby riding school, this includes beach treks and shoreline galloping... so giddy-up and get going.

    The peace & quiet; large serviced pitches; super clean toilet & showers; the proximity to Perranporth; Trevor, Linda and Simba.

    This is the peaceful well run site we have been looking for to spend time as a family, playing games in the evening and having fun together.
    Trevor and Linda are so diligent and ensured that younger campers respected the peaceful family feel of the site.
    We loved the site and will be back next year.
    Warning: if you need formal “entertainment” to palm your kids off whilst you have a few drinks - don’t come here...it’s not for you!
    My 6 year old son William has also requested I mention that Simba the dog is brilliant too! :0)

    Disliked: 

    Water pressure in the showers at peak times, but there is nothing the site can do and we just got up a little earlier or went later; Lovely showers with a bit of planning!

From the manager...

Wow!! What a review!! Thank you so much.
It was a total pleasure to meet you and your lovely family.

Shower pressures now resolved after a major leak was discovered by the Water Board on their main supply pipe..

Hope we can meet up meet again next year.

Thank you for your review.

For all those clients that were unhappy with the water pressure at times, we are delighted to inform you that today South West Water confirmed that they have now repaired a really bad leak on the Main pipe which supplies us.

Water is now full on and gushing!!!!! Yerrrrrr! Pity they did not find this 4 weeks ago or more!!!!

From the manager...

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay.

Normally, for most of the time, the showers are absolutely fine but we concede that at peak times of the day, sometimes, the pressure is not as good as we would like.

Unfortunately we cannot control this as it remains in the hands of South West Water and their lack of infrastructure as numbers continue to rise in the area.

We are working towards an in house solution to this and hope we can make things better in the future.

For most clients, there has not been a problem with this.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Want a break from the beach? Set a course from Cambrose, 10 minutes’ drive away, hiring bikes for the route down to Devoran, or pick up the Camel Trail in Padstow (40 minutes) for rides through 18 miles of cracking Cornish countryside.

If that’s not energetic enough, get over to Kernow Adventure Park (half an hour) for wakeboarding and floating assault courses, or a beach and café for those of a more easygoing nature.

It’s a similar distance to Falmouth, where sturdy Pendennis Castle looks as if Henry VIII has only just declared it open, and where those with military leanings can delve into four centuries’ worth of weaponry (and everyone else can just revel in the clifftop views). The town’s National Maritime Museum makes for interesting wanders as well, especially when topped off with trips on the old wooden ferries to St Mawes, or up the River Fal.

Flower fan? The lawns, orchard and gardens at Trelissick House (20 minutes) are sumptuous in all seasons and if you fancy wandering the foliage of warmer climes, it’s 45 minutes to the subtropical biospheres of the Eden Project.

Must see

  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (5.8 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (5.9 miles)
  • Blue Reef Aquarium (7.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Trerice (6.8 miles)
  • Cornish Mines and Engines (8.0 miles)
