This year we decided to take our annual holiday locally, well when I say locally I mean a holiday here in the UK and decided on a camping trip to Cornwall. A friend of ours had just recently got back from a camping holiday and suggested a lovely little camping site in Goonhavern next to Truro. So after a little research on the internet we found the campsite that my friend suggested and booked a one week holiday there.
Perran Springs Holiday Park was our destination, and after a six hour drive down to Cornwall we found the park with ease after the wonderful directions given to us when we booked. We arrived just after mid-day and were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff at the park, and were shown to our accommodation.
We opted for the Super Euro Tent which was very spacious and more than enough room for my wife and me along with our 2 boys. With three bedrooms, kitchen and living area I had never seen a tent so big. Included in the tent was everything we needed gas stoves for cooking, microwave, fridge and even a toaster.
Then there was the holiday park itself, which had everything from its only laundry to a park shop selling essential ingredients and the cleanest shower block you could imagine. There was also so much to do within the park itself with three big fishing lakes and nature trails through the Cornish country side. My boys really enjoyed lazing around the fishing lakes, and with an onsite tackle shop there were no problems getting equipment to fish.
Perran Springs Holiday camp is also very well located, with a lot of tourist attraction not too far from the park itself and the famous beaches of Newquay only a short drive away. All in all we had a wonderful time camping at Perran Springs; the staffs were superb the park was well maintained as were all the amenities.
We will definitely be back next year, as from start to finish, from booking to leaving we were made to feel very welcome. Next year though I think we will opt for the new accommodation which are being built called Pods, we just missed out on these lovely little wooden cabins this year which are due to be open in July.
So until next year thank you Perran Springs for a wonderful holiday, and if you’re looking for great holiday in Cornwall get in touch with them.
