General

  • Close to the beaches of Perranporth and Crantock
  • Well-equipped playground, and campers' kitchen
  • Two-minute walk to a well-stocked shop and the local pub

Pretty much everything to tickle the fancy of families and couples on a Cornish hol is at Penrose Holiday Park, a couple of miles from Perranporth. It's near some of Cornwall's most splendid beaches (Perranporth and Crantock are just two in the area) for sandy days out without packs of other people, and it's firmly kid-friendly with a toddler swing, swing, climbing frame, monkey bars, climbing wall, ping pong table and slide in its playground.

It's dog-friendly too, Penrose is five miles from Newquay for those who fancy some serious surf, and has free hot showers in blocks with hairdryers and shaving points, along with family rooms and an accessible wetroom.

The family team here has thought of extra little touches to tick most people's holiday boxes, like hand hygiene gel added to the chemical disposal point, the sink in the laundry area for washing out delicates, and the guest kitchen with fridge, microwave and the loan of ice blocks for its chest freezer. A dishwashing area is also to hand.

For supplies, the fresh and frozen food, tipples, tobacco and post office of Penrose's local shop is a two-minute walk away: bring foodie and drinkie bits back to have evening dins and sips around the site picnic table. In high season, a takeaway on site serves up breakfasts, pizzas and burgers.

And – another item that might tickle your fancy on hol – just across from the shop is local pub the New Inn, serving up meals from a fairly extensive menu; a kids' play area is here too.

    Within walking distance there is a pub, shop and garden centre with a restaurant, pet shop and fruit and veg shop. There is also a bus stop which takes you to Perranporth about 5 minutes away also Newquay and Truro. Pitches are spacious, we had a fully serviced pitch which was very handy.

    Disliked: 

    The showers were very dated. Concrete floor with a large concrete ledge to step up onto to get under to shower. There were no shower curtains so clothes and shoes would get wet even when hung up. The water ran out of the cubicals and along the centre of the shower block to the drain which made the floor very slippery.

    The site was really well looked after. I have great respect for the team that look after it as it shows how much they care for it. The toilet block etc was very clean. I couldn't fault anything with regards to the camp site. Nice size pitch and even ground.

    Disliked: 

    We live in the middle of a city and it is quieter where we live than on this site. The noise is from the road to Perranporth which is never quiet. All through the night, lorries, motor bikes and the constant road noise made sleeping, if like my wife you are a light sleeper, at best intermittent.

One of the best sites we've been to 09/05/2018

    Great site with level pitches and bags of room. Friendly staff who even printed a bus timetable for us.
    Fish and chips at the little cafe were excellent. The showers/toilets were immaculate and the camper's kitchen was very useful, especially for those in tents.
    A short bus ride down to Perranporth with its wonderful beach ....
    We'll be back!

    Very friendly staff. Great takeaway - even delivered your order to your pitch so you didn't have to wait there. Fish and chip Friday excellent. Very clean and well kept. Nothing was too much trouble. Booked in January and a good price for the pitch.

    Disliked: 

    Not many water taps - could only find one in our field and it was quite a way to carry heavy canisters. Only one chemical disposal point for the whole site. Only 4 ladies showers for the site but didn't end up being a problem. The pitches weren't very clearly marked - not sure if we encroached on the neighbouring pitch. None of these small points would deter us from returning to this campsite.
    Paid for clubwifi but didn't work very well. 3 days out of 10 couldn't use it. Waste of money but nothing to do with the site.

Local attractions

Penrose Holiday Park is fably placed to reach pretty much anywhere in Cornwall within half an hour's drive, whether you fancy theme parks like Flambards or the Crealy Great Adventure Park, Cornwall's spectacular gardens, its historic houses and its heritage of tin and china clay mining. And of course there are many many beaches...

Within a few miles are two small urban areas high up on the 'Cornwall is well gorgeous' list: the town of Perranporth two miles away, with three-mile long sandy beach and its surf, and the village of Crantock three miles away, with thatched cottages, another beach and the Gannel estuary.

Busier – and yet more surfier – times are in Newquay five miles away, along with several surf schools; for shopping, nightlife and a museum, theatre and cinema, take yourself to Truro 10 miles away.

If Cornish cantering is a holiday thing too, riding stables a few miles from the site do treks for equine enthusiasts from beginners to experienced riders. Surfboard hire, lessons, paddleboard coaching and jetski hire are all easy to access in the area too and a karting circuit is nearby.

Must see

  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (5.2 kilometres)
  • Newquay Zoo (8.3 kilometres)
  • Blue Reef Aquarium (8.5 kilometres)
