New modern amenities block at award-winning Cornish holiday park

02/02/2021

A new amenities block, featuring modern underfloor heating, is ready and waiting for campers at Cornwall’s award-winning Heligan Caravan and Camping Park, for when campsites can open again.

The block has been specially designed for the campsite by Cornwall-based architects, The Bazeley Partnership, and its design reflects the high standards of the park, as well as built to blend in with the Grade II Heligan Park and Gardens.

The changing and amenities facility includes private family rooms with generous walk-in showers, WC, basin and mirror and one accessible family room, equipped with a toilet, basin and a walk-in shower, as well as male and female changing areas, each with two large showers, toilet facilities, changing benches and mirrors. Adjoining the main amenity building, there is also a drying room, washing up area and external dog shower.

The new facilities replace an outdated amenity block and are fitted with underfloor heating throughout each section of the building to ensure user comfort all year round. Natural ventilation and daylight is provided by high-level glazing around the building.

Heligan Campsite offers 17 holiday homes in addition to well-maintained grass and hardstanding pitches for camping, caravans and motorhomes. The park is dog friendly, with five of its holiday homes suitable for canine companions.
