Perfect for families Full facility park Indoor pool complex

A five star, family-owned campsite nestled in the Cornish countryside. Just outside of Newquay, Hendra has been family owned since 1972 and remains the same today. The site is within easy access of Newquay’s seven golden sand beaches, amazing local attractions, as well as having a range of on-site activities and entertainment.

Visit England Bronze Award winners in the Camping, Glamping and Holiday Park of the Year category 2023, Hendra went through to the Visit England finals after winning Gold at the South West Tourism’s Holiday Park of the Year. Hendra is a five star destination, for bespoke-to-Hendra holiday homes as well as touring, camping and caravan holidays.

Fun… There’s plenty to do for all ages right here. There is the Oasis Fun Pools, with three waterslides, river rapids, toddler pool and giant tap with a waterfall. The outdoor pool open from the end of May until the end of August with sun loungers - perfect for chilled-out days.

For kids, there’s a children’s play area, with The Jolly Henry, a pirate play ship, a skate and scooter park, indoor amusements, and indoor soft play at Henry’s Playloft. Small ones will love getting to meet Henry or Henrietta, the resident hippos.

Every evening there’s entertainment at The Venue for the whole family! The little ones can enjoy hippo fun, activities, and party dances in the early evening, followed by bingo, games, and Star Acts late at night for the grown-ups - there are a range of acts each week including comedy, live music, shows, illusionists and karaoke.

Couples and those who like things a bit more relaxed, will enjoy the more laid-back, acoustic entertainment on at Mario’s and the outdoor Deck Bar during the summer months. Or perhaps a drink in the refurbished Terrace Bar & Restaurant right beside the pool! Check-out the Special Offers page on Hendra's website for seasonal events and special appearances.

There are a variety of on-site activities for all ages, including Segways, Mini 4x4s, Nature Explorers, and special events in the peak weeks. Dog-owners are also welcome - your pooch will enjoy running around the dog walking fields.

Eat… There are four eateries on site, including The Terrace Bar and Restaurant, offering a new for 2023 menu, with a range of food and drinks! Located right beside the outdoor pool, enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner in fabulous new surroundings with the new look. There's indoor and outdoor seating for all the family.

Mario’s Pizzeria serves mouth-watering pizzas, available in the restaurant or for takeaway. For traditional fish and chips, head to the fish and chip shop right here on site, with takeaway and outdoor seating. For that holiday ice cream go to Valentis Ice Cream Shop.

If you're looking for a light bite or any holiday essentials, you can pop to the Marketplace, open daily, serving hot pastries, snacks, tinned food, toiletries and toys for the little ones!

The outdoor Deck Bar is also open during the summer months, perfect for soaking up the sun with seasonal live entertainment.

Stay… There are accommodation options to suit every taste and budget. Caravan holiday homes come in a range of sizes and price ranges. The most recent arrivals are the Godrevy and Crantock, both premium holiday homes offering fantastic comfort, with fresh, modern décor and lots of space. The Meadows field, located in its own private area of the park, is home to top-of-range accommodation with decking and added extras.

All caravan holiday homes are located in a tranquil setting, nestled in 50 acres of holiday park and 80 acres of landscaped parkland. You will love the award-winning and varied grounds, with beautiful blooms, green trees and manicured grass, and also wilder flowers and fields. With beautiful, scenic views of the countryside, and only a short drive from the sea, you are sure to be in holiday mode from the moment you step into your accommodation.

Camping and Touring… Hendra has 12 fields of spacious touring and camping pitches around the park in a range of sizes and locations. There are multiple water points, washing up blocks, waste disposal areas, and a launderette, and many of the roads are tarmacked with plenty of lighting. The toilet block facilities have been awarded the 'Five star Loo of the Year' award each year for their stylish layout and cleanliness. Dogs are welcome on some pitches, too.
