Camping and Touring at Hendra

Hendra has 12 fields of spacious touring and camping pitches around the Park in a range of sizes and locations. There are multiple water points, washing up blocks, waste disposal areas, and a launderette, and many of the roads are tarmacked with plenty of lighting. The toilet block facilities have been awarded the ‘5* Loo of the Year’ award each year for their stylish layout and cleanliness.

Dogs are welcome on some pitches too.


A Sustainable Holiday in Cornwall

Above all, at Hendra we care about the impact our park has on the environment, so offering sustainable caravan holidays is something which is very important to us.

We have invested in electric vehicles to use on park, reducing our carbon footprint even further. Over the years we have already reduced it by 60% with our solar farm, Sunpower Meadow, our Biomass Boilers, recycling, tree planting and conservation. We want to make sure people have many years left of memorable Hendra holidays!
