Tehidy is a rather special small park with an emphasis on the environment so wild flowers abound and a note is kept of all bird sightings. Richard and his family have worked hard to ensure that the facilities on offer are of a high standard. In a secluded area at the top of the park, stand wigwam camping cabins, rather like a wooden tent with a hexagonal open cooking shelter. Tehidy also offers 28 level touring pitches (all with 10A electricity, two with hardstanding) plus 20 mobile homes and five bungalow-style cottages to rent. The pitches are terraced where necessary and some are hedged, with others part fenced and with views across the countryside.
The owners live on site and are constantly looking for ways to make improvements and to provide a relaxing environment. The setting on a wooded hillside is peaceful with a stream at the bottom and direct access to a woodland walk alive with primroses and bluebells in spring. Whilst the grass is neatly cut, the banks are left for nature to develop. There is a big emphasis on the environment. The nearest beach is at Portreath which has a deep rock pool for swimming at low tide. There is a request bus stop outside the entrance for Truro, Saint Ives and Newquay. This is surfing country but you can also windsurf at Saint Stithian’s reservoir. Tehidy Country Park (250 acres of woodland) is nearby, together with Tehidy Golf Club.
