Me and my family, especially my 2 boys, really enjoying sea fishing and surfing so it’s no wonder that every year we go to Cornwall for our annual holiday. Living in the city it’s a breath of fresh air to pack our bags jump on the train and head of down to the Cornwall in the south west of England (although if you ask a Cornish man he will tell you “I’m Cornish not English”) I mean what’s not to like, nice golden beaches which are great for fishing and even greater for surfing, nice rolling country side and of course the world famous Cornish pasties, which are to die for, I often go home a couple of pounds heavier.
We like to change my destination every year and with Cornwall surrounded by the ocean your spoilt for choice of where to stay with never been more than 20 minuets from the beach Newquay’s Fistral beach being one of my favourites, it has a great surfing scene, some great café’s and restaurants and a real good night life. Then there’s Truro Cornwall’s only city, the lovely harbour town of Falmouth and the nice fishing towns of Penzance and Newlyn. All of which me and my family have visited in the past.
This year we decided on Perranporth a small seaside town on the north coast, we visited Perranporth for a day out last year as we were staying in Newquay which is only 5 or 6 miles down the road and instantly fell in love with the place and so therefore decided this would be our destination for this year. With its quaint little town and huge golden beach, in fact the beach is so huge it almost felt like we had the whole place to our self’s and of course great surf . The boys even enjoyed doing a spot of snorkelling as well as running round the big sand dunes. As a family (and a dog) we really enjoy staying at campsites when your staying in a place as beautiful as Cornwall being cooked up in a hotel is not our thing, we like the freedom of been out in nature and smelling the ocean breeze in the morning. We stayed at a lovely little campsite called Perran Springs holiday park, near Perranporth, in Goonhavern only 2 mile’s away from Perranporth beach and I must say one of the nicest campsite’s we have stayed in Cornwall thus far.
We opted for the super euro tent and were not disappointed it; came equipped with gas stove’s, a fridge and even a microwave, it was also very spacious inside accommodating the four of us with no problems the boys even had there own rooms. The staff where super friendly and welcoming, the shower/ toilet block was well maintained and clean with hot showers which was great after a long day at the beach. There is a lot to do at the park as well with 4 fishing lake’s, nature trails and lot’s of activity’s for the kids, we wasn’t bored once. All in all we were very impressed and would definitely stay here again and would even recommend this place to anyone visiting Cornwall. So another week in Cornwall has gone by for this year and we can’t wait to start planning our next trip next year so thank you Perranporth and Perran Springs holiday park for another great holiday.
