Alan Rogers Review

A peaceful, attractive park in a mature garden setting, Heligan Woods complements its sister site, Pentewan Sands with its busy beach life and many activities. One can enjoy the mature trees and flowering shrubs here which have been further landscaped to provide an attractive situation for a number of holiday homes (17 to rent). These face out over a part of the ‘Lost Valley’ of Heligan fame with the touring pitches below on sloping grass, some terraced and others in a more level situation (some with handstanding) amongst trees and shrubs. In all, there are 100 good sized touring pitches, 89 with 16A electricity.

Part of this park’s boundary actually edges The Lost Gardens of Heligan (although nothing can be seen), and at some time the land must have been part of the Gardens. The many facilities of Pentewan Sands are open to Heligan Woods visitors. There is access to the Pentewan Trail to walk or cycle into Mevagissey or Pentewan. You can take a bus for the trip back up the hill!


Fully equipped and well kept, the modern, heated toilet block includes a unisex room with bath and small size bath. Extra showers in separate block. Fully equipped laundry room. Small shop. Adventure playground.
