General

  • Very quiet family park in wildlife haven overlooking ancient Goss Moor
  • Luxury heated caravans including one with full disabled access
  • Eight miles from Newquay and five from Camel Creek Adventure Park

If sylvan surroundings, scurrying squirrels and sweeping moorland views are your bag, take the clan to the family-run Castle Holiday Park in Newquay, where you’ll be perfectly placed to explore the impressive Castle-an-Dinas Iron Age fort, as well as the rest of Cornwall.

The luxury heated caravans here are set in gorgeous grounds overlooking the ancient heath of Goss Moor, with a small outdoor play area for the kids and a heated indoor pool in the summer months. If you’ve come to Cornwall to nurture nature, you won’t have far to go with the wildlife abounding on the park: as well as the squirrels, you can also spot rabbits and several bird species including jays and woodpeckers.

Caravans come with a shower room, kitchen and lounge/diner; there’s also a spacious caravan with a wetroom and wheelchair access available for disabled guests. All caravans have heating and double glazing, and sleep up to six or eight people.

Get your walking boots at the ready though- the nearest pub, restaurant or shop are three miles away from the park itself.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

The indoor swimming pool is open between 23/05 and 31/08.

    Great stay at Castle Holiday Park. Lovely clean caravan which provided us with a very comfortable stay. The site is small and quiet which is exactly what we were looking for. With so much to do locally this site provides a great base for exploring. The children enjoyed the small pool. We didn't have any problems whilst on site but it was clear that the owners would have been available even out of hours if we had needed anything.

  • Liked: 

    Absolutely loved staying here. The staff were so friendly and helpful and had such a lovely jokey manner with the children.
    The caravan itself was lovely and clean and had everything you needed just no towels! You seriously wouldn't need a thing! Beautiful and very comfortable. The children loved the terrace outside and the park onsite was great for little ones. It has lot to offer around with a gorgeous nature walk and also onsite the children could climb trees and play hide and seek.
    The pool onsite was warm and clean and fab size to play the children's and adults alike had the best time. Open from 10-7 so plenty of time to play!
    Close to Cornwall birds of prey and other amenities.
    Launderette was great and got alot of clothes cleaned in one go. Not expensive either!
    Brilliant stay and will definitely be going back very soon.

    Disliked:

  • Liked: 

    Lovely quiet site. Caravan was beautiful and included all utensils required. Plenty of cups, plates and bowls provided, which makes life easier. Everything was perfectly clean and tidy. Onsite pool was small, but was perfectly big enough for the four of us to relax in each day. The staff were lovely, calling on the day of arrival to inform that the caravan would be available earlier than stated and also calling to the caravan to inform us that the pool had been re-opened, following cleaning. The personal touches just help to make you feel welcome. Plenty of parking, only a short distance from caravan.

    Disliked: 

    The wasn't anything that we disliked. The site does lack outside space for children to play ball games, so this may be an issue to some. We didn't see anywhere to put recycling waste and so our outside bin was crammed full by the end of the week. Wifi would be a bonus.

From the manager...

Thank you for your nice comment we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Best wishes Sandra

From the manager...

We are sorry that you didn’t enjoy your stay. We would like to point out that we state that we are a quite family park with no bar or entertainment. We only have a small play area for small children but the swimming pool is a nice indoor heated pool it isn’t big but it is ideal for the size of the park. We are the owners and are always pleased to help with direction and advise on places of interest. All i can say is may be next time you need to book a more commercial park where there will be lots of things for you to do.
The caravan you stayed in was new last year and has double glazing and central heating we only charge £550.00 for everything and I now the caravans are spot list.

Local attractions

Start exploring Cornwall just outside your caravan castle with a trip to the Goss Moor Nature Reserve which has a seven-mile circular trail for walking, cycling and horse-riding. Birdwatchers can see breeding species including nightjars, linnets and reed buntings, with hen harriers and great grey shrikes spottable in winter; flutterers can chase after silver-studded blue and small pearl-bordered fritillary butterflies among others.

Sandy sorts visiting Castle Holiday Park will find some of Cornwall’s best beaches within a short drive: the long stretch of cliff-backed Watergate Bay, the sheltered rockpool beach of Mawgan Porth and the rugged coastline and clifftop views of Bedruthan Steps are all close at hand.

The famous surfing beach of Newquay is eight miles away, and if the kids just can’t get enough wildlife at the park or Goss Moor, there’s a zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium at Newquay too for rainy days. The Camel Creek Adventure Park is five miles from Castle, and St Columb has indoor and outdoor play areas as well as over 30 ponies to ride and groom. Not all at the same time…

A twelve-mile drive north reaches the fishing port of Padstow, where fishy options abound: you can take a boat out to land some mackerel, dangle a line for some sea angling from the cliffs or go crabbing in the inner harbour (lines and bait can be had at many of the shops in the town, including the Padstow Angling Centre, where ‘Rockhopper’ Ed Schliffe can give you tips on technique).

For two-wheel travellers, the Camel Trail follows 18 miles of the Padstow to Waterloo disused railway line along the Camel River, a track called the ‘the most beautiful train journey I know’ by John Betjeman – and if a poet says something’s beautiful, it’s a fairly safe bet that there’ll be some eye-watering scenery along the way. You can buy maps and trails for the Camel Trail and the other Cornwall trails at the Padstow Tourist Information Centre.

Going south, the valley village of Mevagissey is within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is tucked below the ancient Heligan estate, now home to the Italian garden, wild jungle and flower gardens of the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Scoot along to Snozzle, or St Austell, five miles away, for a pit stop and visit to the China Clay Country Park two miles north of the town, before making your way to the thousands of plants and the biomes of the Eden Project. The port village of Fowey, also to the south, is where Charlie One almost got his head taken off by a shot from a musket (irony), while a good spot for big and small screen fans is Charlestown, used in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and in an episode of Doctor Who.
