I've just spent two weeks at par sands and im so pleased, i was looking for cheap and cheerfull and got cost effective and fantastic!! theres now a cafe on the beach serving great coffee, they have landscaped the gardens and developed the "camping field" in to a static site with ponds and gardens and huge fountains (which the kids didnt get out of!!)beach is really safe and pleased to hear that old factory is being demolished. i loved it, the boys loved it even the dogs loved it deffinatly contemplating buying a caravan there

Some of the comments on this site seem very out of date - or a lot has changed. We had a great holiday here last year and are looking to book again. Nice quiet site. Pool is a bit small but good enough for the little ones. Loved the wildlife lake, the fact that the kids can cycle around safely and just a few minutes walk to the beach. The beach is not the most picturesque in Cornwall having the factory to the far end of one side, but facing the other way it is a fabulous view and very safe, sandy and shallow. You CAN walk to the shops - it takes about 10 minutes and we had no trouble finding the place.

Me and my wife just stayed there last week , the park has new owners since i stayed there last year and what a difference, the gardens are great and well maintained, the indoor pool was lovely and warm, and the beach was realy great, spent some time fishing and had a wonderful time very impressed with the standard the new owners are aiming for, going back in august cant wait.

The facilities were below average , the pool is small and over chlorinated in my opinion, they seem to have a problem with the local youth population as while we were their their were a few awning's/tents broken into and they decided to set fire to the surrounding woodland, we found the beach very poor which meant driving to other beaches which defeated the point of booking the site in the first place.
The site otherwise is good but please be a little bit more security conscious on this site.

On a final note none of the major problems were down to the site owners their is a public foot path that goes through the site which gives open access to the local undesirables.


Booked this site for the second week of our holiday, Two adults and four teenage girls, pleasent site, wardens very very helpful and always polite, Bit off the main roads, beware of the china clay factory which is huge and can be noisy at night, if you have a big caravan insist that you get a suitable size pitch, Swimming pool is MINUTE, we would loved to have used it as our weather was bad, if weather is good the beach is very good. The advertising sugests shops and a chippy are within walking distance, correct if you want your food cold. DIRECTIONS to the site are required as it is NOT sign posted. local markets are good, be prepared to travel for anything else. I would return (without the kids)!!!!!!

Guestbook reviews

We love absolutely everything about Par Sands and wouldn't change a thing, We've upgraded twice since purchasing our first Holiday Home and each time has been made really easy by the wonderful Park Leisure Team. We chose Par Sands because we have always loved the area and it so convenient for us - we visit most weekends and we only live about 40 miles away. The grounds are always immaculate and we really enjoy being apart of the Park Leisure community - we've made some great friends through the regular social events arranged by the team and you'll often find us with a full house of guests! Its great to be so close to the beach and we love going for walks and exploring the stunning coastline. The best part is that it is open all year round, so we can visit as often as we like. We'd certainly recommend a Park Leisure Holiday Home to anyone looking for the perfect Cornish Retreat.

Mr & Mrs Dawe.
