- Adventure playground, shop, communal lounge and free wifi
Summer Valley Touring Park is a peaceful and private park, in a cocoon of trees two miles to the north of Truro, and in a south-facing sheltered valley in peaceful Cornish countryside and a wildlife haven. It's centrally located within Cornwall: the north coast and beaches are 10 minutes' drive away and the south coast within 20.
The south-facing pitches have lovely views over meadows and woodland, and there’s a smart service area, an adventure playground, a food shop and a heated facilities block with guest lounge and free wifi
The site is small (three acres) and family-owned, so holidaymakers can expect good service, a warm welcome and a relaxed environment. There’s a pub half a mile away in the village of Shortlanesend, or guests can make their way the two miles into Truro for lots more shops, restaurants and services.
Grab your bucket and spade and hit the miles of silky sand at Perranporth, just six miles away.

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Thanks for taking the time to complete your review. We are surprised to hear that you had issues with the showers and also felt it was unclean as we have been constantly praised on the cleanliness and attention to detail we have. We also have notices displayed asking if you have any issues with cleanliness that you let us know so that we can rectify it for you with immediate effect, unfortunately you didn't do this.
We know our decision to ban various breeds will not be popular with everyone; especially those who own those dogs, however, we have made the decision based on customer feedback and our experience of dog behaviour on the park. Maybe next time you could find a site who will accept your woofers.
The gate bar is used and we are also careful that customers are not disadvantaged by this as we work with you to ensure that if you are late back, for example at the Landsend Fireworks etc we put the bar up later. Hopefully next season we will have an automatic barrier which will help address this particular concern you have raised.
Lovely friendly clean site

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. It was lovely to have you stay at the park, we look forward to seeing you next year!

It was lovely to have you stay here at Summer Valley. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our shop is open during peak periods from 8am - 10am and 4pm-7pm as this is when the demand is highest, unfortunately we are not able to keep the shop open all day as we have to clean and do other chores. We have 6 showers, the AA only require us to have two for the size of our site. Demand for the showers varies during the day but as you know we don't limit the time or hot water so people can enjoy longer showers than some other sites; this may lead to a waiting time as peak periods. We are missing your puppy, she was lovely and a joy to have on the park - we now have two teenagers begging for another woofer! Hope to see you again, Regards, Kate

If you are coming from the east along the A30 towards Redruth, ignore all signs to Truro and Shortlanesend. You will pass a large car (Nissan) showroom on the right, then take the next left turn, signposted Truro 4 miles. After 1 mile at Allet bear left towards Truro.
The site is approximately 0.5 miles on the right-hand side of the road. The site is clearly signposted.
If travelling from Truro, take the B3284 signposted Perranporth, the site is 2.5 miles out of Truro just through Shortlanesend on the left-hand side.
It’s less than half an hour to the following: Springfield Farm Park and Pony Centre, which on top of all the equine excitement has a huge indoor play barn and a variety of outdoor fun; penguins, parrots and otter antics at the Paradise Park wildlife sanctuary; and the mega milking parlour, rides and slides at Dairyland Farm World.
Flambards adventure park is about 30 minutes away too, or there’s more relaxed entertainment within the heavenly biomes of the Eden Project and at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Drama queens shouldn’t miss the opportunity to take in an open air performance in the jaw-dropping setting of the Minack Theatre.
In ye olden days, a naive chap taking a day trip to St Ives might find himself landed with seven wives, cats, sacks and more... These days, advice is to avoid these traditional souvenirs and make a beeline for the Tate Gallery instead.
