Why stay here ...

Just 3 miles south of the cathedral city of Truro with its excellent shopping centre, restaurants, museum and theatre, Carnon Downs Camping and Caravan Park 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 Looe 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 Camping and Caravan Park 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.

Absolutely fantastic.....

We returned to Carnon Downs site this July following an enjoyable visit last August. With 38 years experience under our belts this has to be one of the best sites in the Caravan and Motorhomes handbook. From the minute you check-in the calm and relaxed ambiance permeates throughout the whole site. The pitches are spacious and thoughtfully laid out. Well planned landscaping of trees, shrubs and flowers add to the overall look and feel of the site. The site is really smart and well maintained thanks to the efforts of the wardens Phil & Gina and the rest of the hardworking team. The toilet blocks are immaculate and I would guess that they’re inspected and attended to regularly to ensure they are always at their best. For those with dogs, the exercise field is enourmous, well maintained and fenced for added security. The options for eating out nearby are plenty and the location is great for nipping down into the city of Truro or visiting the beautiful coastline and it’s many interesting and pretty villages. It’s a long trek down from the midlands but well worth the journey. If there were league tables for campsites, without doubt this would be at the top of the premiership. Very well done guys. You really set the standard.

Great Weekend Away

We live locally to this site, however during the winter months we still like to use our Caravan, This is our first visit to this site, its fantastic, the facilities have been recently refurbished to a excellent standard, you get your very own wet room with toilet sink and shower. The site itself is very well looked after and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

A very good site

We are staying at Carnon Downs at the moment and rate this site very highly. Every thing is kept very clean and tidy, and all the staff are very helpful. There is a bus stop right outside the site and you can get to most places from here if you do not want to use your car.Great dog area 7 acres in all, and very large pitches, every thing you require is here.
