Gnome World Holiday Park: Tent and touring pitch with optional electric

General

  • Spacious site near the centre of Cornwall
  • Easy access to the beaches of the north and south coasts
  • Pubs, restaurants and shops all nearby

Gno what? If you fancy a friendly, clean and quiet site in the open countryside of Cornwall, a short drive from the north coast's fab surf at Newquay and with a National Nature Reserve on the doorstep, you should give scenic Gnome World Holiday Park a whirl.

The seven-mile Goss Moor Trail is opposite the park for easy ambles or bike rides along its flat terrain, part of the Goss Moor National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest for a spot of wildlife watching a quick walk from your pitch.

By car, the beaches of Newquay and the north coast – Mawgan Porth, Crantock, Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach – are within a few minutes' drive, and the ports and coastline of the south, such as Mevagissey and Fowey, not much further.

There's plenty of room on this spacious site for family games, alongside a well-equipped play area for little imps, a well-maintained toilet and shower block with disabled facilities near the touring and camping field, and a token-operated launderette.

Pubs, convenience stores and restaurants are within walking distance and a shop is also on site to pick up essentials – yes, you can buy your own gnome here to take home…

    We enjoyed our stay at Gnome World and we would recommend and visit again. Location from A30 was great, easy to get to other parts of Cornwall during busy times. Closely shops and takeaways.

    Comms were great and staff friendly/flexible.

    Plenty of space on pitches and for children to play football. It was quiet after hours every night and the site was clean and well maintained.

    The toilets and showers were as perhaps as clean as can be on a busy campsite in peak season and were cleaned daily. Showers were hot enough and always worked for us, we never queued.

    Disliked: 

    Upgraded toilet and shower facilities would be nice - the design and tiling was that of a basic toilet block - an upgrade would put the site in another class (and I suspect increase their revenue :) ), although they were perfectly functional.

    Shops are very close, but not ideal walking distance, 2-4 minutes in a car.

    Toilet and Shower facilities were very clean.
    Location is within two minutes of main A road that links to Newquay.
    Decent takeaways and grocery shops nearby.
    Victoria Service Station is handy too.

    Disliked: 

    At times toilets and showers were little bit overcrowded. May be separate washdown facilities for face wash in the morning which could be outside may overcome this issue.

    May be central power source to charge power packs etc for non electric pitches

    Great location to explore both North and South coast. Close to Newquay. Massive pitches. The site wasn't jam packed which left lots of space for the children to play. Quiet at night. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful. Facilities are cleaned regularly.

    Disliked: 

    Grass electric pitches aren't level.
    The speed bumps on site are very harsh and not really suitable for towing a caravan. One is too close to the barrier.
    It would be better if the site shop sold more camping basics eg breakfast cereal, toilet roll, bread etc.
    Not the sites fault, more irresponsible dog owners but not everyone kept their dogs on leads or cleaned up the poo. Not everywhere but unfortunately a few poos on the grass area where the children played.

Local attractions

Gnome World Holiday Park is peacefully placed away from the main tourist trail of Cornwall, but cunningly sited for easy access to all the best attractions of the county's north and south. The Crealy Great Adventure Park and Newquay Zoo are both less than seven miles away.

If poss plan plenty of time at the beaches of both the north and the south: at the north, head for the world-famous surfing beaches of Newquay including Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach, both of which have surf shops for kit hire and lessons.

If you don't fancy plunging into the foamy depths, Porth beach, also at Newquay, doesn't allow surfing in the summer season so has a quieter family feel.

To the south, Mevagissey and Fowey are both popular ports with visitors, Mevagissey for its historic harbour and Fowey for yacht spotting and a trip on the passenger ferry to Polruan or back to Mevagissey.

On land, there's loads to do too, like exploring Cornwall's old tin mines, part of a World Heritage Site or having a Cornish pasty and ice cream in every old fishing village dotted along the coast.

Seafood should be sampled in Padstow and art in St Ives too, or spend a day at Cornwall's best known attractions, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, both easy to get to from Mevagissey and Fowey.

If you fancy a flight, take a helicopter ride to the beaut Isles of Scilly from Newquay.
