Alan Rogers Review

Carnon Downs is an excellent all year park run personally and enthusiastically by Simon Vallance, a very forward thinking owner. It has been thoughtfully laid out in a series of fields covering 20 acres so that all pitches back on to attractive hedging or areas of flowering shrubs and arranged to provide some pleasant bays or other, more open grass areas. Gravel roads connect the 150 pitches, most with 10/16A electricity and over 70 with hardstanding. Of these, 55 are serviced with the newer ones being exceptionally large and surrounded by young shrubs. On arrival you will receive a warm welcome, a neatly presented layout plan of the park and a touring information pack.

This includes comprehensive details on walks and cycle paths leading from the park. Some of the park’s amenities are to be found in the round-house next to the TV and information room. The round-house used to house the donkeys that turned the mill which once operated on the site! Although one side of the park is next to the A39 road, it is well screened with a band of mature woodland (ideal for dog walking) so noise should be minimal. This quiet, quality family park is well situated to explore the tip of Cornwall. Bus for Truro or Falmouth stops outside. Affiliated to the Caravan Club.


Two excellent modern, light and airy, heated blocks include en-suite units and facilities for disabled visitors. Another well maintained block, also heated, includes some washbasins in cubicles and showers (unisex). Three good family bath/shower rooms, one suitable for use by disabled campers or families. Mother and toddler room, two baby sinks and full sized bath. Two laundries with freezers. Motorhome services (ask at reception). Good adventure-type play area. Football field. Gas, newspapers and caravan accessories. General room with TV. Good dog walks. Caravan storage.
