An award-winning, family-friendly park located just outside of Newquay. Hendra Holiday Park is a five star, family-owned campsite nestled in the Cornish countryside. Hendra has been family owned since 1972 and remains the same today. Hendra has over 50 years’ experience of family holidays and knows how to make a holiday memorable. Visit England Bronze Award winners in the Camping, Glamping and Holiday Park of the Year category 2023, Hendra went through to the Visit England finals after winning Gold at the South West Tourism’s Holiday Park of the Year.

Hendra is a five star destination, for bespoke-to-Hendra holiday homes as well as touring, camping and caravan holidays.

Hendra is within easy access of Newquay’s 7 golden sand beaches, amazing local attractions, as well as a range of on-site activities and entertainment.


There are accommodation options to suit every taste and budget. The caravan holiday homes come in a range of sizes and price ranges.

This year there are new for 2024 Meadow Lodges – Hendra's best accommodation ever. These luxurious lodges are situated in an exclusive area of the park, so you have the benefit of quieter surrounds without compromising on distance to facilities. These lodges have an elegantly decorated and spacious living space, shaker kitchen, as well as opulent furnishings, and your own private outdoor decking complete with a barbecue.

Also new for 2024 is the top-range holiday home caravans, the Watergates. These are beautifully decorated, modern and spacious homes, situated in a range of idyllic locations on Hendra's lush parkland. There are dog-friendly options available in this range.

All caravan holiday homes are located in a tranquil setting, nestled in 50 acres of holiday park and 80 acres of landscaped parkland. You will love the award-winning and varied grounds, with beautiful blooms, green trees and manicured grass, and also wilder flowers and fields. With beautiful, scenic views of the countryside, and only a short drive from the sea, you are sure to be in holiday mode from the moment you step into your accommodation.

Camping and Touring… Hendra has 12 fields of spacious touring and camping pitches around the park in a range of sizes and locations. There are multiple water points, washing up blocks, waste disposal areas, and a launderette, and many of the roads are tarmacked with plenty of lighting. The toilet block facilities have been awarded the 'Five star Loo of the Year' award each year for their stylish layout and cleanliness.

Dogs are welcome on some pitches, too.


There’s plenty to do for all ages right here. With the Oasis Fun Pools, one of the largest indoor fun pools in the southwest. There are three waterslides, river rapids, toddler pool and giant tap with a waterfall. The outdoor pool is open from the end of May until the end of August with sun loungers - perfect for chilled-out days.

For kids, there’s a children’s play area, with The Jolly Henry, a pirate play ship, a skate and scooter park, indoor amusements, and indoor soft play at Henry’s Playloft. Small ones will love getting to meet Henry or Henrietta, the resident hippos.

Every evening there’s entertainment at The Venue for the whole family! The little ones can enjoy hippo fun, activities, and party dances in the early evening, followed by bingo, games, and Star Acts late at night for the grown-ups - there are a range of acts each week including comedy, live music, shows, illusionists and karaoke. Couples and those who like things a bit more relaxed, will enjoy the more laid-back, acoustic entertainment on at Mario’s and the outdoor Deck Bar during the summer months. Or perhaps a drink in the Terrace Bar & Restaurant right beside the pool! Check-out the Special Offers page on Hendra's website for seasonal events and special appearances.

There are a variety of on-site activities for all ages, including Segways, Mini 4x4s, Nature Explorers, and special events in the peak weeks.

Dog-owners are also welcome - your pooch will enjoy running around the dog walking fields.


There are three eateries on site, including the recently refurbished Terrace Bar and Restaurant. Located right beside the outdoor pool, enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner here in the ambient surroundings. There's indoor and outdoor seating for all the family.

Mario’s Pizzeria serves mouth-watering pizzas, available in the restaurant or for takeaway. For traditional fish and chips, head to the fish and chip shop right here on site, with takeaway and outdoor seating. If you're looking for a light bite or any holiday essentials, you can pop to the Marketplace, open daily, serving hot pastries, snacks, tinned food, toiletries and toys for the little ones!

The outdoor Deck Bar is also open during the summer months, perfect for soaking up the sun with seasonal live entertainment.
