Practical Caravan Top 100 Parks Award 2008
Chacewater Park is a quiet haven in Cornwall exclusively for adults aged over 30, and is the perfect spot for a relaxing rural holiday. It is located ten minutes out of the county town of Truro, the gateway to western Cornwall. This makes it ideal for exploring the region’s natural beauty, its picturesque villages and its varied coastline. All caravan pitches are hardstanding with electric hook-up. Many also have water points. Site amenities include two washblocks, launderette, small shop and gas exchange.

If you want a break away from children or noise in general, then you’ll find Chacewater Park to be a haven of peace and calm. Not only is this an adults-only site, it’s also exclusively for the use of over 30s.
The large pitches are mostly hardstanding and are laid out over 10 different areas, with the rows of pitches backing onto hedges, trees or a neat dividing fence. There’s plenty of space between the pitches, so this is an ideal touring park for anyone who values their privacy. Well kept flower beds lend some welcome colour. There’s a four-and-a-half acre dog-walking field for those with four-legged friends to take care of.
A small on-site shop provides newspapers, milk and other essentials, and the toilet and shower facilities are always kept spotlessly clean.
Chacewater Park is well placed for visits to Truro, Redruth, Camborne and the Roseland Peninsula.
St Mawes Castle is an easy drive away, as is Caerhayes Castle Garden, a 60-acre garden noted for its camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons.
With so many places to visit nearby, and such a quiet and friendly atmosphere on site, it’s no wonder that many caravanners come back to Chacewater Park year after year.21 Apr 2007
Practical Motorhome Independent Site Reviews.
This is a quiet, inconspicuous and friendly site owned, and run, since 1989 by Richard Peterken and his daughters, Mandy and Debbie. The site is set out across several level paddocks, just off a secluded lane. The first three paddocks, close to the huge dog walk, are reserved for tourers with dogs. Only 20 such visitors are allowed on site at a time, and usually only one dog is permitted per pitch. All pitches are supplied with electrical points, 80 per cent of which are all-weather hard-standing pitches, and 29 are full-service.
The large, modernised reception area houses a small shop selling newspapers, milk and all the basics, plus motorcaravanning essentials.
A daily newspaper booking service is available. There are videos for hire and a book exchange, as well as the usual tourist information service. The reception area also houses the main toilet/shower building.
The site was originally set up for families with children. Then, in 1999, the Peterkens saw a niche in the market and took a chance, converting their park to accommodate only adults aged 30 and over.
Their bold decision proved wise and now Chacewater is a very popular destination.
It's often filled with teachers on half-term or vacation breaks. Over 60 per cent of the bookings for June and July are pre-booked by guests from previous years, and at least 85 per cent of the clientele are over 50 years old. And, due to the Peterkens' policy of continuing improvement, we will see more facilities for handicapped visitors in years to come.
As pleasant as it is to sit and relax on your pitch, with a view of old mining chimneys on the adjacent hillside, Chacewater Park makes a convenient base from which to visit many places in Cornwall. It is only a ten-minute drive to Truro and close to Redruth, Camborne, Falmouth and the Roseland Peninsula, as well as the beaches and Coastal Path on both the north and south coasts.21 Apr 2006
Practical Caravans Top 100 Parks Awards 2006
Although it used to be
a family park, Chacewater Park now caters exclusively
for adults over 30, promising
a wonderfully quiet and relaxing holiday in a most civilised setting. Its large pitches, most of which are hardstanding, are laid out over 10 different areas, with the rows of pitches backing onto perimeter hedging or a neat dividing fence. The grass awning areas between the pitches are kept in immaculate condition, while beautifully planted flower beds add colour and interest.
In order to give caravanners
as relaxing a holiday as possible, the three touring areas nearest the dog walk are reserved for dog-owners only, which means that non-doggie types are not bothered by four-legged visitors. The whole site is absolutely pristine, although it retains
a simple, country feel, with outdoor dishwashing sinks and just a small shop for newspapers, milk and other essentials.
As pleasant as it is to sit and relax on your pitch, with a view of several old mining chimneys as a backdrop, Chacewater Park is a convenient centre for visiting Truro, Redruth, Camborne and the whole of the Roseland Peninsula. It’s not surprising that so many guests return again and again to this site to enjoy a tranquil break.20 Apr 2006
