Head to Hendra in Newquay for a holiday experience you won’t forget.
You’d probably assume that, as one of only a handful of England’s holiday parks to achieve a prestigious Visit England 5 Star Gold and an AA Pennant Platinum rating, Hendra Holiday Park near Newquay would be content, but this family owned park will never rest on its laurels!
“Many of our guests are repeat visitors and that suggests we’re getting it right”
Situated in 80 acres of countryside minutes from Newquay’s golden sand beaches, Hendra plays host to up to 4,000 guests every night during peak summer months and 2019 looks likely to be another good year.
“We’re delighted to continue being included among the elite of English holiday parks inspected by Visit England, not least because quality plays such a big part in awards,” says Director Jon Hyatt. “Guests are actively seeking excellent hospitality, and that is our greatest strength, mainly due to the hard work and dedication of our team,” Jon continues. “Many of our guests are repeat visitors and that suggests we’re getting it right. This is also a result of continuous investment too – over £1.5 million in the last twelve months alone, with constant attention to guest feedback.”
Jon also points out that in peak season, Hendra employs around 250 staff, and the £16 million-plus spent annually in the local area by guests benefits other businesses, making a substantial contribution to the local economy.
Not only are there award-winning touring and camping pitches, there’s also a choice of spacious top-of-the-range holiday homes too, including those with home-from-home luxuries like king-size beds, en suites and outside decks, all at the very best quality standards visitors would expect from one of Cornwall’s premier accommodation providers. Facilities include the spectacular Oasis fun pools, an indoor play centre, restaurant, café, pizzeria, fish and chip takeaway, entertainment venue, amusements, playgrounds and even its own supermarket!
Guests seeking a quality stay and activity experience can be assured that a holiday at Hendra will be ‘green’ too! Hendra’s ten-acre solar farm supplies the park with most of its energy and the park has achieved major tourism and business awards for sustainability, making it one of Cornwall’s top environmentally friendly resort destinations.
