Great News - New Club campsite purchased

21/04/2021

We're pleased to announce we have purchased the award-winning Carnon Downs Caravan Park in Cornwall.

The popular campsite, which has been an Affiliated Site with the Club since 2007, reopened on 12 April 2021 and will continue to operate all year round. 

Located just three miles from the cathedral city of Truro and near the villages of Carnon Downs, Devoran and Feock, the recently acquired and newly named Carnon Downs Caravan and Motorhome Club campsite is an excellent base from which to explore all that Cornwall has to offer. There are many amenities close by, including the Old Quay Inn, and visitors can enjoy wonderful walks both on and from the campsite. The River Fal and the creekside hamlets of Penpol and Devoran are just a short stroll away, and the site is located on Route 3 of the National Cycle Network.

 

Enjoy a range of pitch types and facilities

The campsite boasts 20 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and features 169 spacious touring pitches, of which 64 are fully serviced hard standings, 46 are standard hard standing and 59 are grass pitches. The campsite has a reception and shop onsite, Wi-Fi hotspot available, licensed cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, plus a children’s playground, football pitch and dog walking area. All facilities will be operating in line with Government guidelines. There's also a popular storage facility, including a useful Store & Tow Service, and the campsite has two holiday chalets for hire.

Recent reviews

Rated five-star by Club members, Carnon Downs Camping and Caravan Park enjoys consistently excellent reviews, with guests particularly enjoying the great location and high quality onsite facilities. One member even went so far as to say it is the “best site on the circuit”!
