Fun…There’s plenty to do for all ages right here on the Park. We have 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 - perfect for chilled-out 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 (temporarily closed). Small ones will love getting to meet Henry or Henrietta, our 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 our dog walking field.

Eat…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 our Fish and Chip Shop.

There are accommodation options to suit every taste and budget with caravan holiday homes, including the NEW FOR 2020 Godrevy, our new premium holiday home this year. The Meadows field is home to our top-of-range accommodation with decking and added extras. In all of 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 our premium pods, with decking and beds provided, for a really comfy camping experience?

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

A brilliant 10 day hol at Hendra with extended family. What a great place! Two of our families had a top of the range caravan..superb, and three families had budget range and we struggled to find the difference between them, apart from size and content! Everywhere is immaculate, so clean and the staff are sooo freindly. Our kids couldn't get enough of the kids club and the entertainment was great too, very funny comedian. Family favourites was the indoor pools, couldn't get them out of there, the train and the club, and pizzas from the pizza cafe! Town and beaches very close, we loved Dairyland and the Zoo both nearby, and Fistral beach surfing even though its was a bit cold! We've booked for next year and my sister has booked again for this July. Thoughly recommended park, fantastic value for money, genuinely family orientated (no groups of noisy singles!), and has everything you'd need.
