Hendra Holiday Park

Hendra Holiday Park

Hendra Holiday Park has been family-owned since 1972, a long-standing five-star holiday park which is nestled in the Cornish countryside, close to Newquay which has 7 golden sand beaches to explore. Hendra’s location makes it an ideal spot to explore all of Cornwall’s attractions, and miles and miles of coastline.


There’s so much to do for everyone on the Park. Try Oasis Fun Pools, with 3 waterslides, river rapids, toddler pool and geysers. The outdoor pool is open from the end of May until the end of August with sun loungers, great for lazy 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. Little ones will love getting to meet Henry or Henrietta, the resident hippos, in the mornings on the Hendra Safari train.

In the evening there’s more hippo fun, with hippo party dances at The Venue, followed by Star Cabaret every evening, which is more adult orientated. Couples will enjoy the more laid-back, acoustic entertainment on at Mario’s during the summer months. Dog-owners are welcome - your pooch will enjoy running around the dog walking field.


The Terrace Bar and Restaurant, offering a range of food and drinks, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an outside terrace overlooking the outdoor pool. Enjoy coffee and cake in the Coffee Express Café.

The Deck area has a bar in the summer months, perfect for soaking up the sun, whilst enjoying mouth-watering pizzas at Mario’s Pizzeria or traditional fish and chips from the Fish and Chip Shop.


There are accommodation options to suit every taste and budget with caravan holiday homes, including the Godrevy, the new premium holiday home. The Meadows field is home to the top-of-range accommodation with decking and added extras. In all of the caravan holiday homes you will be in a tranquil setting, overlooking the countryside, which is sure to put you in holiday mode from the moment you step into your accommodation.

Glamping Pods

The Hendra Pod Village is nestled amongst the trees in Trevilley Field. The pods are a good option for those who want to try camping, or just want a bit more comfort. There are cosy couples’ pods and family pods (for adults and younger children). Why not try the premium pods, with decking and beds provided, for a really comfy camping experience?

Camping and Touring…

There are 12 fields of spacious touring and camping pitches, well laid out with roads, lighting and water points. The toilet block facilities have been awarded the '5* Loo of the Year' award each year.
