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.

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.

First Class Site

Carnon Downs Club Site
We stayed at Carnon Downs from the 3rd to the 8th of June, our first visit there and our first visit to Cornwall. I booked when it was affiliated and when it became a CAMC site I was a bit concerned in case the transfer detected anything. I had need not worry as it is a perfect site and was very clean and tidy and had excellent facilities that were cleaned within an inch of their lives. The facilities are also excellent, several options in each block and a very good Covid system in place. We found the staff to be friendly, helpful and very hard working, especially Will who is the previous owners son and now Deputy Manager. There seems to be food virtually every day of the week but we only tried the wood fired pizzas which were excellent, even my wife who isn't really a pizza fan loved hers too. We were up at the back on a serviced pitch beside The Paddock, yes you could hear some traffic on the A39 but it was never an issue. We did find it amusing that the double roundabout up at the road into town always seemed to have a traffic jam but quickly cleared through. Very impressed and if we are back in the area will definitely look at going to Carnon Downs again

Ideal Location in Cornwall

Carnon Downs Club Site
We have just returned from a week at Carnon Downs. We booked as an affiliated site but the transfer to CMC worked well. We were located in the "Green" section which is on the right as you enter. Our grass pitch was very generous and well spaced from adjacent pitches, all surrounded by trees. It is a little close to the A39 road and while this did not prevent us sleeping at night, we were very aware of traffic noise during the daytime. However, that said, as the site is close to that road access is very easy. Another plus for the green area was that it has an adjacent ablution block. This has the toilets separated from the showers which is a great bonus when you are limited on numbers in a building. There are Unisex showers and also family shower rooms. Around and about there are numerous attractions, but allow plenty of time as even in June, outside of school holidays, there was a lot of traffic and regular hold ups.The village of Carnon Downs is an easy walk away and has a well stocked SPAR shop. On the edge of the village is an excellent garden centre, claiming to be the best in Cornwall. Under CMC ownership I am sure the site will prosper. We will certainly return.

June 2021

Carnon Downs Club Site
Carnon Downs caravan site has been developed & run by Simon successfully & has now been acquired by the Caravan Club, we hope that it will be managed in a tactful manner as many people treasure this site. The Covid precautions need to be reviewed as the elastic band system used for the toilets/showers/laundry meant that the one small red bucket inadequate for the multiple elastic bands leaving many high & dry above the Milton solution. The roof vents & doors not utilised by opening & reducing risks, all left shut. The challenge of these facilities being shut 9-10am for cleaning not easy as no warning given on one occasion.Only one washing machine working, the other two awaiting repairs, very difficult for this large site. Just hope these difficulties are sorted quickly as this should be such an amazing site.
