Hendra Holiday Park

Dog Friendly
Five Star Holidays ideally located in Newquay

Hendra Holiday Park is a 5* family owned site nestled in the Cornish countryside, just outside of Newquay. Our long-standing site has been family owned since 1972, and remains the same today. We are within easy access of Newquay’s 7 golden sand beaches, amazing local attractions, as well as our range of on-site activities and entertainment. This year, we're celebrating our 50th year, and we have plenty planned for the season!


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 giant tap with a waterfall. We also have an outdoor pool 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. Small ones will love getting to meet Henry or Henrietta, our resident hippos. In the mornings you can find them in our Terrace Bar & Restaurant hunting for breakfast, on the Hendra Land train, and performing in The Venue in the early evening!

Every evening there’s entertainment at The Venue for the whole family! The little ones can enjoy hippo fun, activities, and party dances in the early evening, followed by bingo, games, and Star Acts late at night for the grown ups - we have a range of events each week including comedy, live music, shows, illusionists and karaoke. Couples will enjoy the more laid-back, acoustic entertainment on at Mario’s and the outdoor Deck Bar during the summer months - or perhaps a drink in our Terrace Bar & Restaurant right beside the pool! Check out the Special offers page on our website for seasonal events and guest appearances. 

We also have a range of on-site activities for all ages, including Segways, Mini 4x5s, Nature Explorers, and special events in the peak weeks.

Dog-owners are also welcome - your pooch will enjoy running around our dog walking fields.


We have plenty of eateries onsite, including The Terrace Bar and Restaurant, offering a range of food and drinks! Located right beside the outdoor pool, enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner with a tropical view. There's indoor and outdoor seating for all the family. You can also enjoy coffee and cake in the Coffee Express Café just inside the restaurant.

Our Mario’s Pizzeria serves mouth-watering pizzas, available in the restaurant or for takeaway. For traditional Fish and Chips, head to our Fish and Chip Shop right here on site, with takeaway and outdoor seating. If you're looking for a light bite or any holiday essentials, you can pop to the Marketplace, open daily, serving hot pastries, snacks, tinned food, toiletries and toys for the little ones!

Our outdoor Deck Bar is also open during the summer months, perfect for soaking up the sun with seasonal live entertainment.


There are accommodation options to suit every taste and budget. Our caravan holiday homes come in a range of sizes and price ranges. Our most recent arrivals are the Godrevy, a premium holiday home, and our Crantock, brand new for 2022! The Meadows field, located in it's own private areas of the park, is home to our top-of-range accommodation with decking and added extras. All of our caravan holiday homes are located in a tranquil setting, nestled in our 50 acres of holiday park and 80 acres of landscaped parkland. With beautiful, scenic views of the countryside, and only a short drive from the sea, you are sure to be 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). This cosy shell with electric sockets, double glazing and a heater is a great alternative to canvas! Or 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 around the Park in a range of sizes and locations. We have multiple water points, washing up blocks, waste disposal areas, and a launderette, and many of the roads are tarmacked with plenty of lighting. Our toilet block facilities have been awarded the '5* Loo of the Year' award each year for their stylish layout and cleanliness.
