Franchis Holiday Park is a quiet, family owned park with just 21 touring pitches, 19 seasonal pitches and 12 privately owned caravans and chalets. Situated just 5 miles onto the Lizard Peninsula it’s just a short drive into the village of Mullion with its pubs, shops, golf club, harbour and nearby sandy beaches of Poldhu and Polurrian Coves.

We’re perfectly placed for exploring the wonderful scenery of West Cornwall, messing about on boats on the Helford, walking the coast path or shopping and lunch in St Ives or Falmouth.

Nice park in lovely surroundings, very quiet and peaceful.

We enjoyed this park the owners seemed very friendly and the lady just loved riding the lawnmower tractor, she was never off it.

Its just off the main road down to the Lizard but its not noisy, the location is a bit out of the way but nowhere in Cornwall is that far to be honest.

If I had to gripe it would be about the toilet block. The cleaning seems to be down to guests, all the cleaning materiels are located in the block but I never saw them get used, everytime I used the shower I had to clean it thoroughly first.

The site shop never seemed to be open but there was a sign on the door saying if you needed it open to ring he doorbell on the house, I nearly did once but the family were eating so I was a bit uncomfortable getting them to open the shop, I drove down to Helston instead.

In a nutshell, a nice site but a bit the owner should take responsibility for cleanng the showers etc. Also, the toilet block was very dark as the electric lights were switched off throughout the day (to save on electricity I presume) and it was a bit unpleasant inside.

Hello there, Thank you for taking the time to put your review on the caravan site finder website. I just wanted to let you know that Franchis has now changed hands and we are the new owners. Having camped on the site ourselves we were all too aware of the cleanliness issues so have made significant improvements! The lights are still on a timer but there is a much shorter period when they are off which shouldn't cause any inconvenience. We have also stocked the shop up and it is now open 8-10am and then 5-7pm. We're hoping to turn it into a laundrette for next year and open a larger shop specialising in local produce. Anyway, I hope you'll come and see us again and enjoy some of the improvements on site! Best regards, Kate & Phil Franchis Holidays Near Mullion Cornwall Tel 01326 240301
