Why stay here ...

Situated near a lovely beach facing St Ives Bay, the Godrevy Park Club Site is popular in summer. Its rear gate gives you access to gorse covered sand dunes, through which a ten-minute walk leads to a scenic cliff path facing St Ives bay. A beach-side car park is a convenient 1 mile drive away from the caravan park.

Located in Hale, Godrevy Park Club Site offers easy access to the many quaint Cornish fishing villages peppered across the coastline, such as Coverack, Cadgwith, Mullion, Porthleven, Newlyn and Mousehole. The area enjoys the best of both worlds - quiet exploration in beautiful natural settings and plenty of attractions in nearby villages for a fun family day out, not to mention a chance to sample the excellent local cuisine. If you're interested in National Trust sites and fairly fit, the climb up towards St Michael's Mount will be well worth the effort. You may also enjoy a wander around Glendurgan and Trelissick gardens. During the school summer break, this caravan site literally buzzes with life. A fish and chip van visits the site, please ask site staff for details.

Lovely Easter break!

We enjoyed a lovely long weekend Easter break at Godrevy the weather was absolutely amazing. Upon arrival & setting up we had an electrical fault, we moved pitches & it was found that the pitch connection post was faulty. The wardens were brilliant, very helpful & patient. From the site there are many stunning walks & access to beautiful sandy beaches & the sea. There are many nice places to eat & drink in Gwithian & Hayle which are close to the site. The site is clean & tidy & well worth a visit.

A Cornish Seaside Gem

Spent three great nights at this site, soon after it reopened this Spring. (2019)

The pitches (all grass) have recovered well after a rest over the winter, and the facilities block has undergone a “refresh”, leaving it well up to the standards at other C&MC sites. A credit to the club local managers , having acted on previous reviewers observations.

The site itself is in a great location and is easily accessed off the nearby A30 (just remember to follow the Club Directions).

As mentioned, the biggest attraction this site has is its location, a short walk from the three-mile (5 km) unbroken sandy beaches of the eastern coast of St. Ives Bay. There are also substantial sand dunes known as The Towans which stretch from Porth Kidney Sands in the west all the way to Godrevy Head. This stretch of beach is popular for surfing, particularly in the Gwithian area.

A fantastic place for a short break in the off season, and also for family seaside holidays in the summer.

(Just one caution for families with small (or not so small) children. The walk to the beaches requires crossing a road on a “blind” bend. Not a problem if you keep you’re eyes and ears open, but you might want to keep hold of youngsters who aren’t quite so traffic aware as you cross safely.... Don’t let this put you off, Godrevy is brilliant place for family holidays, especially if you like the outdoor beach life!)

Lovely September Break

We had a great September stay at this site in our motorhome. Easy walk over the downs to the beach, with miles of lovely clean sand when the tide is out. The site is a bit exposed and we decided to come away two days early, before a severe storm headed in. We will certainly stay here again.

Lovely Site Shame About Pitch Availability

we've visited this site a number of times now usually in September and love it. This year we decided to visit in October and whilst we still love the site and its location were slightly disappointed to see around two thirds of the pitches out of action. The wardens had decided to close the two top cul de sacs and remove pegs from a large number of pitches around the site in order to reseed them. We found this rather unfair as we pay the same membership fee as everyone else but because we chose to visit outside the peak time we are penalised as to the pitches we can take. Some of them had the marker moved forward which meant that if we had gone on one of those our outfit would have been on the road. Others had grass seed sown which was being eaten by pigeons!!. Surely this could be done once the site closes. On top of this 3 of the 8 toilets and 3 of the 7 washing cubicles in the ladies were also locked. To cap it all one of the female wardens was moaning that they had six outfits coming in on one day!!. I know it is out of season but come on caravan club treat us all in the same way or else reduce membership for those who only use sites out of the high season.

Fantastic site.

I remember when going on holiday in the caravan was an exciting time with the whole family looking forward to time spent together and by the sea. Now it's just the two of us but we still love our time away and this super site fits the bill. Location by the sea and the site kept well by friendly hard working wardens. Don't get caught up with inspecting the facilities which are perfectly adequate and clean. This is a site where you really can enjoy time away in your van.
