Parkdean - Sea Acres Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2011

We've been staying at holiday parks around Cornwall i.e., Newquay, St. Ives, Perranporth and found this holiday park was the most fantastic and fabulous location. The park was not too big size, very clean and had the best sea view overlooking the Kennack Sands cove.

We stayed in Kennack caravan which was located in the front row next to the 9-hole golf course. Only Kennack (Caravan no.34-43) and Poldhu (No. 44-52) were on the front row which have best sea view, the Polbream (No. 53-55; 87) were also in the front but located a bit too far at the end. The caravan was quite new and clean.... don't expect too much like Sheraton or 5-star hotels... it's still the caravan and it's the best condition you can imagine. Staff was friendly. The park had restaurants and convenient shop. The only thing I didn't like was the road which was very narrow... but it was everywhere in Cornwall. It looked like the roads here made by the midgets... gave us exciting every time driving around the corner and met the oncoming traffic!!
There was coastal path leading you to the beautiful scenery along the sea to Cadgwith village nearby... on the way there were small herd of Shetland ponies grazing the field along the coastal path... very cute. The holiday park is not far from Kynance Cove and Lizard Point.... which I think it's the most stunning beach in Britain.
The Kennack Sands was not too far to walk, but no suitable for pushchairs or walking with young children as the road was very narrow.... however there was car park near the beach (£3) and there was shops and cafe where fresh baked Cornish Pasty, sandwiches, coffee, tea and ice cream were there. Lifeguards was on duty.. very safe for small children.

Room Tip: The best sea view of caravan honestly... from Kennack No. 36-43 and for Poldhu no. 44-52... the cara...

This was our second stay at the lovely Sea Acres. Even better than the first one as our caravan had lovely sea views this time. We went on a four day sun hols and extended it to 7 days. Our caravan was clean and had all the mod cons. The shower was immaculate with hot water on demand. The heating and fire worked really well and as we went in May and the weather was a little chilly, this came in handy to warm up the caravan at night. Our kids 2 and 3, loved the early evening entertainment and you had the choice to join in or not in the games and dancing. It enabled us to have a nice glass of wine in the bar while watching the kids burn off some energy before bedtime. The shop was well stocked with essentials and the staff throughout were helpful and really polite. The views are amazing and the local beach a 5 min walk or 2 min drive is lovely and is life guard assistedand has shops and food and icecream and coffee etc but still very quiet. The only thing was when driving the road down to the beach car park is a nightmare when there is something coming the other way but you do get used to the small lanes and it is cornwall after all. There is loads of gardens, coves, a theme park for kids called Flambards which is a whole day out (very expensive so use tesco vouchers!) and the Lizard is beautiful and a lovely place to visit for walks. I would recommend this site for anyone who wants a nice quiet holliday in a beautiful location. Enjoy...!

We stayed at this park for 2 weeks with our 2 children,3 and 10 months, and what a lovely little find it was, we had a fantastic caravan with fabulous sea views, caravan very clean and homely, staff very helpfull and friendly, we especially loved the entertainment girls Gemma and Zoe who were fabulous with our kids, our eldest is very shy and we took her to a lot of the kids clubs in the morning and the entertainment with Sid and Lizzie at night and the girls were just so good with her and she even ended up going on stage hula-hooping which i never thought i would see! If you have children under the age of 8 they will love these girls! The site is great for day trips as everything is not too far away by car, we travelled over 8 hours to get there and would definately go there again!The takeaway food wasn't that brilliant but met our needs! Thanks again for a fantastic holiday Gemma and Zoe, you have made some fantastic memories for my little girl!

Ok, so we have stayed at quite a few sites in the last two years & at last we have found the best one!

On arrival I do have to say we got confussed as there was no clear signs to tell us where to go for key collection. A fellow holiday maker told us where to go & that's where I met the fantastic park manager who gave me our welcome pack. We then went to find our caravan expecting something very basic as we had booked through 'The Sun Hols deal', yet we were given a 3 bedroomed one with double glazing & central heating. It was also very clean. We were amazed that nearly all vans have verandahs with picnic benches. Our van looked over the play area so we could watch our children (3 & 5) whilst we drank our coffee!

The site itself is clean & well looked after. The range of activities is great for families with smaller children. There's not much for older kids to do, but if you are at the beach or daytripping It'd be ok. The staff were fantastic & the girls who were on the entertainment team did a great job. On our first day, Gemma spent a while with us & chatted to our children. She had a real knack for remembering childrens names & making them feel special. In fact I chatted to every staff member I met. The views are fantastic & if you walk you are right next to the coastal path.

All the times we have stayed on caravan sites our children were too young for the entertainment. This time they got used to their surroundings quickly & we even stayed for bingo! The entertainment itself is pretty much the same every night & may get boring. Also the function room is a little on the small side, so get there early. We really enjoyed it though & it was perfect for our children.

We ate both in the restaurant & had takeaway. The restaurant was clean & quiet. Just a small point, you can only have roast off the menu on the sunday which wasn't all that clear. You also have to get your own drinks from the bar, so get them before you go in. You also can't eat outside even though there is a perfectly good outside area with tables. To do that you have to get takeaway. All the food we had was very good & freshly cooked, the prices were not all that bad & drinks were reasonable.

The shop on site was well stocked, but we stocked up at Helston on the way through. There are three large supermarkets there.

This is the best site for us. It's relaxed, friendly & quiet. If you have older children & want more to do, then the sister site at Mullion would be better. We stayed there last October & it was also good. We loved Sea Acres so much we have booked to return for a full week next year.

Just been back to Sea acres for the 3rd year running, and can honestly say we wouldn't go anywhere else. Really helpful staff, and that includes everyone we had dealings with, the receptionist (Christine, Thankyou so much) even managed to save us a transfer to Mullion for our final weekend - something Park Dean main office seemed unable or unwilling to do, (we'd applied for a weekend extension through the Sun hols and got Mullion as our 2nd choice, would have been a shame to up and move). I could list all the names but there's really no need, because everyone on the site goes that extra mile. However one other star who really livened the entertainment up with her motivation and passion for involving everyone was Gemma - Thankyou, you were great and our kids loved you and Zoe. This is a great place for families with younger kids, lovely play area, crazy golf, small amusement arcade and clubhouse, decent pool.
Also on site, the PADI diving centre, hubby had a great session in the sea alongside experienced instructors with full equipment hire for less than £50, well worth it.
This site is not for anyone needing spoonfeeding loud entertainment 24 hrs, it is low key, not in your face, good fun, and that's the attraction for us. Go prepared, maybe wise to load up at Tesco Helston on way in, as although an excellent shop, takeaway, restuarant on site, the opening hours are limited and I reckon you could end up hungry on Lizard as lots of the areas pubs are also limited with food serving times.
The natural beauty of the area and many hidden coves (you can end up with a beach to yourself if you're willing to explore) makes it worth getting off the beaten track, hard to beat as a British destination, doesn't matter what the weather is like elsewhere, it seems to float right over Lizard and there's always a sunny spot to be found. Sad to be home and will be definitely returning.

Stayed for a 7 night break with our two children aged 5 and 7. Caravan (Kennack) wasnt overly large but very well equipped and loverly and modern too. Fantastic panoramic sea views from van and could have loverly al fresco breakfast on the verandah (when weather allowed), Nice small quiet site, pool small but fine - kids loved inflatable fun run. Shop good, reception team friendly, entertainment was great for the kids and the girls doing it were really good. Enjoyed doing the bingo, even though it wouldnt really be my kind of thing! Takeaway food not brilliant but does a job. Location is fantastic and there is a loverly beach just a few minutes walk away. Lots to do in the region for all ages. Site was nice and quiet and clean and tidy. Good childrens play areas. Probably not for you if you want a lively site with lots going on but for a quiet relaxing family break its great. Will probably return later in the season for a short break. Only critisism is the bedding didnt fit the beds which was quite annoying but a only small moan really.
