“Excellent family holiday location. A********”
Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

We came here for Leicestershire school half term which is a week earlier than the rest of the other counties, 22nd Oct - 26th Oct. However we was still able to celebrate Halloween as the entertainment staff had laid on pumpkin carving, Halloween party and a Ghost train where they dressed up as zombies and pelted us with flour and silly string. The whole holiday park was really well run and all the staff regardless of their jobs were really welcoming and friendly. The indoor swimming pool was great and the club at nightime was a god send. I really can't recommend this park highly enough and we will definitely be back. I must just say that the entertainment staff looked like they really enjoyed their work which reflected on the high level of effort they put in with the kids and adults as well. This was a Sun holiday and i really picked well this time. Thanks for a great holiday. Hopefully see you next time.

We stayed at Hendra for 6 nights from 20th to 26th October and we cannot fault it. From booking right through to check out, the staff were fantastic. We stayed in a Perran caravan and it was immaculate, 100% spotless, and very well equipped. The whole site was spotless too, in the whole time we were there, we didn't see a scrap of litter anywhere. The indoor pool was great fun for our 7 and 2 year old, we had trouble tearing them away and it was again spotlessly clean. We didn't eat at the Tavern bar but enjoyed the evening entertainment upstairs on several nights. The site shop was well stocked and not too expensive but the location of Hendra was ideal, with a Morrison's supermarket just a few minutes drive away and also within easy reach of the gorgeous beaches of Newquay.
A big thank you to Hendra for a fantastic stay, we will definitely be returning!

We stayed here for the first week in October arriving on the Monday. Having never been to Cornwall or stayed in a caravan before, it was a completely new experience - glad to say we have not been put off either!
We'd opted for a mid tier caravan which suited us perfectly. It was clean and tidy, not showing too much wear and tear. It had full central heating which was a God send given the really poor weather conditions during our stay.
The kitchen was basically equipped, having the majority of utensils and cooking pots etc, however would suggest taking own mugs if you enjoy a large cup of coffee or tea - the ones provided are tiny! Same with glasses if you like a larger sized glass. There was an oven and hob as well as microwave, with a decent sized fridge/freezer in the corner by the door.
The site itself is located just out side Newquay, about a five minute drive into town. There are regular buses running past the entrance to various different places if you want to take a break from driving, which is really handy.
About a mile and a half away is Quintrell Downs where there are a couple of pubs. There is a footpath all the way from what we saw so it is walkable, though a torch would be needed at night as it is unlit for the most part. In the opposite direction about quarter of a mile or so is another pub and a large Morrisons. This is extremely handy as the shop on site stocked only basic items.
The site also has a pizza place and a chippy. The Tavern Bar also serves food, though we didn't actually eat anything from the site so can't comment on quality.
There is also a club bar which had nightly entertainment, although this was a bit purile for the most part (it was aimed mainly at kids to be fair). We still whiled away a few hours with a beer or five of an evening!
There is also a large indoor pool, a bowling ally and a games arcade which again we didn't use so can't comment on.
The site is quite centrally located within Cornwall and had fairly quick access to all the main routes; with Bude a little over an hour away to the North, the Lizard or Lands End not much further away to the South.
As a first taste of Cornwall and caravaning this was a great experience and we would definitely consider staying at Hendra again.
Would reccomend going out of season mid week if you prefer a quieter life, the prices are way cheaper and also go for the best caravan you can afford as some of the older ones did look a bit tired from the outside.

Room Tip: Aim for the best priced caravan you can afford.

We have just had a very short stay at Hendra thanks to the 'Sun' newspaper holiday promotion. As we were limited with date choices due to working limitations we travelled to Hendra after school on friday to return sunday late afternoon. The park is verTy clean and well cared for with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Our boys enjoyed the oasis pool with its flumes and inflatable rides etc. The park is within easy location of Fistral beach, popular with surfers even in October. The is also a Morrisons supermarket within minutes drive but there is also a grocery shop on site.

We love it here! Check in was quick friendly and simple. The van was very clean, basic but as we had booked the cheapest van, we were very more than happy with it. The bed folded up so we could get the travel cot in easily. We visited the pirates den this year and for younger children it was brilliant, mt 16 month old son loved it! He could run around and with the mats on the floor, I knew if he tumbled he'd be fine. Ove already booked for next year and will be counting down the months till we go

We were on a tour round cornwall for a week & had not booked anywhere for the first 5 nights, just a matter of stopping wherever we wanted to. On way to newquay we passed the park & decided to ask if we could rent a caravan for a couple of nights, good decision on our part! Caravan top of the range & a lot cheaper than staying in a b&b, comfortable,clean & handy for where we wanted to go. Ammenities ok, pizza shop very expensive, £11.95 for a 12" pizza, we won't do that again. However food in main eating area is basic but good and not too expensive. Staff friendly, & thanks to Jamie who sorted everything out for us on arrival. Would stay again, but hopefully in better weather. Park is very central for most of cornwalls attractions, and newquay itself is lovely
