A Land of Contrasts...
Cornwall is a land of contrasts; the rugged North coast, with its spectacular cliffs and granite moorlands; and the softer sub tropical South coast, with flower filled lanes and the lush vegetation of the wooded creeks.
It is also the land of antiquities, a Bronze Age landscape of standing stones, Iron Age forts, fougous and ancient field systems. There are large stretches of uncultivated heath, dominated by the reminders of a great mining heritage - the ivy covered engine houses.
Traditional Fishing Villages...
Dotted around the coastline you will find traditional Cornish fishing villages with narrow winding streets, and cottages leading down to quaint harbours.
Art & Craft...
Added to all this, we should not forget the great artistic tradition of St Ives and Newlyn. Many famous artists, writers and craft people have lived and worked here, and much of their work can be seen in the new Tate Gallery in St Ives.
Sports & Activities...
Calloose is an ideal base for activity holidays such as golf, fishing, diving, rambling, surfing etc. Sea fishing trips can be arranged on a boat that is equipped with the latest hi-tech, fish finding, navigational and wreck detecting electronics.
The Isles of Scilly...
While staying in West Cornwall you may like to take a day trip to the Isles of Scilly - which lie almost 30 miles south-west of Land's End. There are over 100 islands, only 5 of which are inhabited, the capital, St Mary's, Tresco (with its world famous gardens), Bryher, St Agnes and St Martins.
It is quick and easy to get to the islands these days. The ferry, Scillonian III, with its two-and-a-half hour crossing, leaves from Penzance. There is also a 20 minute helicopter service from Penzance, and a 15 minute SkyBus fixed wing aircraft service from Land's End Airport.
How about a visit to the fascinating open-air Minack Theatre? Carved from the rock at Porthcurno, the sky and sea provide a stupendous backdrop to the many productions staged here during the summer season.

My wife an I stayed in one of the static caravans on the site and really enjoyed our stay. The caravan was spotless and we are fussy about cleanliness! The site was very pretty with lots of flowers, palm trees, a stream and lots of wildlife. We saw pheasants, a badger and lots of different birds. We went at a quieter time which suited us but I could see why it appealed to families as there were lots of facilities including a lovely pool, children's park and games room. We would definitely go again.

I stayed at calloose Caravan Park twice last year. I stayed in caravan number 12 in June with my husband. The van was spotlessly clean, normally I take a little cleaning pack with me but I didn’t need it here. It is in a beautiful location in a peacefully valley, not too far from anywhere. About 10 minutes to either coast
The second time I visited I took my grandchildren in the summer holidays as there is more going on for them. It was busy but I suppose all good sites are that time of year. The children loved the big play area and the pool my grandson won some money on the family quiz night on the yes no game which made his holiday, and the girls loved the disco, all in all a great family holiday. The grandchildren are already asking if we can go back next year.

Do not follow the first sign for the site 'cos you will need a 4 x 4 to get your Caravan back in the correct turn off,we have not,but a helpful family dragged our caravan back on the road.
Girls if you like cold showers visit them later on in the day, Boys you are ok your showers are cold any time of the day.
We are a healthy mature couple but my partner did his shoulder in dragging water carriers up & down the steep steps.
We had a difficult week with the weather (can't review that here - would'nt be fair!!) but even so the friendly atmosphere and excellent facilities made our holiday a success.
Situated in a fantastic location (everywhere we wanted to go was on the doorstep it seemed) with good pitches there is little to complain about, very nice site.
