Just three miles south of the cathedral city of Truro with its excellent shopping centre, restaurants, museum and theatre, Carnon Downs Caravan and Motorhome Club Site offers 20 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with spacious pitches, backed by hedges and flowering shrubs. The nearby village of Carnon Downs is charming and peaceful, with a mini market, garden centre, fruit farm and fortnightly farmers' market. The caravan park is also located close to Loe Beach, which offers water sports tuition and hire. After a hard day's fun, there are three inns within walking distance to satisfy any appetite.

The Carnon Downs Caravan and Motorhome Club Site is an excellent base to explore the beauty of Cornwall. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed on and from the caravan site, with the River Fal and the creek side hamlets of Penpol and Devoran just a short stroll away.

FAB-U-LOUS

Carnon Downs Club Site
THE GOOD BITS: What a wonderful site! The site is so easy to get to. No worries about narrow lanes or tight bends. The entrance is very welcoming and kept very clean. Reception are a delight. Professional and wonderfully helpful. It's great that you can book a pitch number when booking as it makes arriving so much smoother and calmer. There is no rush for everyone to turn up at the same time all trying to get a pitch meaning you can arrive when you want and not have the hassle of driving round and round. It is certainly the best laid out site I have been to. All the areas are divided up in to "paddocks". We stayed on the GREEN FIELD and I would definitely choose this area again. Immaculately clean. Pitches are very large and the whole site is calm and peaceful. Facilities are kept clean. Showers are Wonderfully hot and have amazing pressure (beats my power shower at home). There are water stations everywhere so never too far to collect water. These also have fire equipment at every one so it's reassuring that safety is taken seriously. There is a coffee shop open each day and a small bar at night, although we didn't use them they looked very nice and were used by other guests. While we were there they had some evening entertainment as well as some visiting 'food vans' which seemed very popular. There were numerous play areas for children and a large enclosed field for them to play/cycle on. Outside of the main entrance is a bus stop with buses to Truro and Falmouth throughout the day and evening. An adult single in to Truro was £4. All in all it is a top quality site that I would gladly stay at again. BUT I DO HAVE SOME CONCERNS WITH CMHC TAKING OVER. The site is run beautifully at the moment. There are 2 thins that makes this site stand out from the others. Firstly, children are not allowed to ride bikes and scooters around the park but are asked to use the designated areas set aside for them. This works WONDERFULLY. Its safer and quieter for everyone staying. I hope that CMHC keep this rule as its one of the attractions of the site but I fear this may be revoked and the field used for pitches to 'maximise' profit. Secondly, the booking a pitch system is superb. Like I said before it stops the 12 noon rush of everyone arriving together which in turn helps with congestion not only at the site but also on the roads. This is not a site you can drive around looking for a pitch as it's set up as paddocks/cul-de-sacs. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't change this CMHC, it will spoil some of the appeal of this truly wonderful gem of a site

Site with drainage issues

Carnon Downs Club Site
We had been recommended this site by friends and when we arrived we were not disappointed. Good pitches, well laid out. Fish & Chips van & entertainment in the evening. Great start…. BUT…… next morning when the daily chore of emptying the cassette arrived, I was shocked to find an overflowing chemi facility. It was so disgusting I was actually nearly sick. I mentioned this to a member of the site team and they said that the site did have drainage issues. Suggested they close this one off, it must be a H & S issue. The two other chemi toilets were much newer but even one of those was closed off as it was full on another day. This older facility was near The Green. So if you go ask to pitch somewhere else or you will have a longer walk to the new facilities. Shame as this really marred by opinion of this site,

Nice Stay

Carnon Downs Club Site
We stayed here for 4 nights. Site is nice and clean. Each evening different options for meals were offered by 3rd party vendors. Pizza and others. Wednesday they obtained a traditional SEA Shanty Folk singers a very nice little concert and well attended the beer was nice too. The site is great for children and adults alike. Its a great base for trips around Cornwall TV reception was fine and I used 4G my own service. .

Best site we have stayed at

Carnon Downs Club Site
We arrived at Carnon downs on Sunday 4th July for 2 weeks. We had originally booked to go in 2020, our booking was carried over to this year, the site is very well laid out, we stayed on a grass pitch that was a lot larger than the normal caravan club pitches that we are used to. Shower blocks very clean with large cubical's. The last 3 trips to Cornwall we have stayed at Godrevy in Hayle, but from now on Carnon Down will becour first choice. My only issue is there is no internet that reaches to the pitches, the only internet available is near reception/cafe, I was told the the club are going to install boosters around the site for next year.
