Heligan Caravan & Camping Park


Welcome to Heligan Caravan & Camping Park

Visit spring, summer, autumn or winter and you’ll enjoy a holiday that’s light on crowds but abundant in nature.

Cossetted by natural beauty, this 5 star, dog friendly campsite is naturally sheltered by beautiful woodland fringing the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan. Simply step through an adjoining gate and you’ll be in the gardens (charges apply) where you can lose yourself for hours.

Whether you choose to pitch a tent, bring your caravan or stay in one of their well-equipped holiday homes there really is no better place to rest and recharge your batteries with family and friends. For the odd pint of milk and loaf of bread, there is a small well-stocked shop. When the towels get soggy and the jeans too muddy, you can make use of the on-site launderette and outside drying area. As well as looking for birds, bees and bugs around the park, your little ones can also let off steam and make new friends in the children’s play area.

    Your holiday starts from the moment you arrive, by unlocking the door to one of their modern and spacious holiday homes. Combining the comforts of home with the great outdoors, you'll experience a taste of camping at its most luxurious. Nestled below ancient trees and flowering foliage, all of their holiday homes are sited on generous plots, offering a balcony or veranda and, at no extra cost, you can pick your preferred spot. There’s a choice of two or three bedroomed homes, each offering all the comforts of home.

    Stay in luxury in one of their holiday homes and your furry friend can stay too! Choose from five different holiday homes that are available for guests wishing to bring their canine companions. Located in the picturesque countryside and just a short drive from a number of dog0friendly beached, Heligan Caravan & Camping Park is perfect for all the family. With a number of coastal and inland walking paths, you'll be sure to enjoy hours of fun!

    The park is also pleased to offer a wheelchair friendly holiday home. With wide-access, low threshold doors, full wet room, portable helper frame and wide single beds, this home is designed specifically to provide wheelchair users and their families with a safe, easy access, relaxing holiday.

    Family-owned Pentewan Sands first opened its doors almost three quarters of a century ago, with the five-star holiday park, based in an unbeatable location on its own, private beach overlooking Mevagissey Bay, due to mark its 75th anniversary in 2020.

    The park’s sister site, the equally popular Heligan Caravan and Camping Park sited just a few miles away alongside the famous gardens in Heligan, is celebrating its own milestone anniversary this year, with the park reaching its 16th year of operation in 2019, after first opening in 2003.

    Both venues are still owned by the same family which originally opened Pentewan Sands and have become well-established holiday parks in the UK over the years, beloved of guests who often return every year, with some regular visitors to Pentewan Sands having holidayed consecutively at the park for more than 30 years.
