We stayed twice in July 2013 and again in 2014. The big thing that makes this place is the staff, very friendly and accommodating. Like previous people mentioned on other reviews Andy on the bar is very welcoming and youre never under any pressure to drink up and leave which takes the pressure off getting for a certain time. its...

Riverside Holiday Park is a real hidden gem that I'm delighted to have discovered. Having just returned from a four-night break with my boyfriend, we're already looking at booking another getaway next summer. From the offset I was really impressed by the value-for-money offered by Riverside. The cost of hiring their smallest caravan for four nights in early September was... More

I've stayed here many time over the years and every year it delivers on what we need but this year I was a little disappointed just with a few things. Firstly we were placed in the caravan right across from reception and right outside the pool which is fine but there want much privacy when we wanted to leave our... More

Lovely site; clean, family friendly and not overly commercial. All weather pool, cheap and cheerful food and a cosy bar. Lovely location with nice country lane walks. Easy drivable distance to lots of lovely sights and a National Trust property only a short walk away. See you next year!

This site is just far enough out of Newquay that it attracts mainly families and couples which means its a really quiet safe place to be. We hadn't been for eight years and were wondering what it would be like - its got even better!! The welcome is first class and we were directed to our choice, the Roseland chalet... More

We have just returned from a week at riverside and really can't fault it. We have 3 children aged 7, 9 and 11 and we stayed in Roseland Lodge 3. Riverside is off the beaten track but not so far out of the way that you feel isolated. We were warmly welcomed and the lodge lovely except for a couple... More

This is a great Holiday Park well run, clean and peaceful has a great little childrens area with a zip wire swings climbing frame and slide all super safe with a sand base. It seems like its a haven not just for humans but also ducks and rabbits run around in abundance :). The short bald owner is very funny... More
