Welcomed on site on arrival and shown on map our pitch. Site further from Newquay than we thought but good location.

Site is very well laid out and didn't feel as big as it was.

Toilet and shower facilities were excellent and the cleaning Staff were really good at keeping at keeping them clean from morning till night come rain or shine!

Bar terrace good, WiFi not bad, prices OK, amusements all good well laid out, didn't use upstairs entertainment as too busy for us.

Pool complex good and closed to public on rainy days to allow holiday makers good access which was good.

We felt pitch size a little tight once tent was up, passengers had to exit car to park in gap we had and whilst activities on site would like to see more for teenagers that were free or small cost such as basketball area.

Overall we enjoyed holiday there and would go again.

Arrived and had a very easy and smooth check in, precise directions given to pitch. Very big well kept pitch, immaculate toilets and shower blocks, park kept very tidy throughout, friendly and helpful staff, good entertainment for kids and adults, excellent indoor and outdoor pools, morrisons nearby, booked to go back next year, would highly recommend

We arrived at around 13:30 on Monday 3rd August, as we also had friends joining us later in the week we were given their pitch and details initially, hubby sorted that out and we were given the corner pitch in Pine, very big and roomy but very near to the exit barrier on the other side of the wall so noisy as well as noise coming from the main road.

We stayed at Hendra 3 years ago and were pitched in Oak, much better for an undisturbed nights sleep!

The site hasn't changed much, is still beautifully cared for and clean but sadly my 13. 5yr old Stepdaughter was bored as not much for her age range other than the arcades and skate park, she used the outdoor pool but was beaten by the weather and sadly the Oasis didn't hold her attention for long, so my thoughts on that are if you are 10 and below there is lots to do but teenagers not so much.

I would definitely recommend Hendra to anyone, however because of the above we won't be visiting again sadly.

This was the first and will be the last time we go to Hendra. I have registered on this site to write this review which is something I never do.

The toilets were clean and the shop is very well stocked, also it is located in a good enough location to visit newquays and crantocks beaches.

The reason we don't like this site is due to the type of place it is. It is very much geared up for families that travel in groups with lots of children. They are obviously keen on offering cheap drinks and lots of slush puppies so that these groups can stay in the club house until gone midnight. They then leave making as much noise as possible (this happened every night)

We booked the site as we have a little one and wanted to take advantage of the heated indoor pool, soft play area and playgrounds. The playgrounds had fag ends in, the soft play area had dangerous hard parts to it and the indoor pool had a charge and was over crowded and not very warm (also had a time limit to how long).

The first pitch we were given had MacDonald wrappers, food and metal bbq skewers all over it. We were immediately moved to a pitch that had loads of water balloons in the grass which wasn't great for the little one. The pitch we wanted wasn't available due to recent bad weather (when I checked there wasn't anything wrong with the filed) so were placed in the maple field which has a lot of noise from the main.

I think the site needs to look at itself a little and think about the reputation they want and the type of customers they need. The experience I had of the staff is that they aren't really that bothered.

They have had some great reviews hence the reason I wanted to add my opinion of our stay.

Just back from a stay at our first stay at Hendra. Staff were lovely and eager to help which came in useful when upon arriving at our chosen paid for pitch we found it wasn't what we had booked back in January. No worries the Manager Scott said we could spread out on to adjoining pitch as it wasn't ever used. This spreading out over 1. 5 pitches obviously irritated the wardens as we were twice visited by different people telling us we had to move. We didn't and just referred them back to Scott. Annoying really as all we wanted to do was relax after a 8 hour journey. Anyway provided you pick the right pitch things are hunky dory. A lot of pitches slope side to side so levelling ramps are a must something which is not mentioned. Park is large and toilet blocks water and cdp can be a trek from some pitches. Prices for pool seemed reasonable but my main gripe is that the only cash machine is in the independent shop and charges for withdrawals. Not good. Nearest supermarket Morrisons DOES NOT have cash machines anymore but you can get cashback on your purchases. Newquay is only 15 min away unless of course you get stuck in the holiday traffic. Another gripe is the lack of enforcement taking place stopping scooter riders using scooters in public areas where signs prohibit. Staff just turned a blind eye to this practise despite some of the scooter riders reaching excessive speeds. All in all we enjoyed our week despite the rain but we would have to consider returning

Wow, I have never stayed on a site with such good customer service. We arrived at about 3pm on a Saturday, and there was a new arrivals sign up, that led you to a field, where we were met by a young man who directed us to a reception area.

Check in was quick, and the girl gave very precise directions to our pitch, she also showed me where the 24 hour phone number was in the booklet, in case of any problems at any time.

I had booked a full serviced super pitch, we got pitch number 9. Now we couldn't hook up our water or waste, as you need about 10-12 metres of piping and we didn't have enough, the pitch next door only needed about 5 metres as the service bollard isn't in the middle. This is because you have to pitch caravan, awning, car. The awning pads are a gravel topped area, would have preferred grass, this stuff gets bought into the caravan constantly.

The toilet and shower blocks are kept very clean, which is no mean feat with the amount of people using them. My only big gripe is that the showers do not have a curtain or door between the changing area and the actual shower, the shower heads are also fixed and you have to have everything in in a bag, hung up on the side coat hook, to stop it getting soaking wet.

Although this is a busy site, everyone respected the 10pm noise curfew. There is a field that kids can play football etc, but most liked to play round the caravans, which is not good as there is very little spare space, and resulted in a ball hitting our van twice, and also going underneath a lot of times.

The best thing is you can walk into Newquay, it took us 35 minutes, there is one steep climb towards the end, it is also has a Morrisons supermarket, that you can walk to in 15 minutes, as well as a Lidl in walking distance.
