Campsite of the month: Hendra Holiday Park, Cornwall


Hendra is a high-quality Cornish campsite close to all the action of the surf capital, Newquay

It offers a variety of grass pitches, some quiet and relaxed, others closer to the action, and there are car-free fields for safe family camping.

Award-winning facilities

Don't just take our word for it. This five-star holiday park has picked up all sort of awards in recent times, including a Hoseasons Diamond Award, Platinum Loo of the Year Award and an AA Platinum Award, as well as multiple accolades for its flower displays and landscaping.

So while we could mention Fistral, the world-class surfing beach on the site’s Newquay doorstep; highlight one of the finest stretches of the entire 630-mile South West Coast Path nearby at Pentire Head; or whet your appetite with talk of Cornish cream teas and pasties, there’s a good chance you’ll never want to step outside this 80-acre park.

Toddlers, teens and experienced tourers will revel in the abundance of on-site attractions. There are heated indoor and outdoor fun pools, a free land train, and an outdoor gym and play parks to burn off youthful energy.

Food, drink and entertainment on site

If all this activity leaves you too tired to contemplate campsite cooking, treat yourself to Hendra’s takeaway pizza and fish ‘n’ chips, or dine in at the Terrace Bar & Restaurant and Mario’s Pizzeria.

Later in the evening, look forward to live stage performances, before dancing the night away in the disco. Then sleep in blissful peace before the adventure begins again in the morning.

What's near Hendra Holiday Park?

If you do manage to drag yourself away, Newquay has a harbour, lots of sandy beaches, a zoo, plenty of little shops, boats for hire, sea fishing and more.

Other nearby beaches include Towan, Great Western, Porth, Holywell Bay and Tolcarne (for families, especially); Polly Joke (rockpools and caves), Mawgan Porth (swimming, family surfing, etc), and two-mile-long Perranporth, with its seawater pool.

Port Isaac is a fourteenth century fishing village with whitewashed cottages, etc. You might recognise it as the location for the Doc Martin TV series.
