We arrived at Holywell Bay 2 hours before our booking in time and was presented with the keys for the caraven, firstly the staff were very polite and friendly. We have stayed at Haven caravans for the last two years and found the caravan here far better, nothing missing, no bad smells. The club on site was brilliant with great entertainment for young and old, the pool is outside with a slide and was clean and warm, there is a short 10 minute walk to the beach but it is well worth it as it has everything a beach can offer, lifeguards are always watching, rockpools, surfing, lovely walks and sand dunes that kids were going down with sledges. For eating there are a number of pubs close to the site that we found very reasonable and enjoyable, as for what to do, there are a number of attractions near by and Newquay is only 15 mins away, St Ives took us 40 mins to get to, and Lands End took just over an hour, one bit of advice is when visiting St Ives, take the train from St Erth as parking in St Ives is terrible.
All in all a brilliant holiday and will be coming back next year.
