 Lovely big pitches on a well maintained site. All the standard facilities for a holiday park, but of a generally high standard.

The loos and showers are always clean and there is a parent and toddler block we never had to queue to use. The shop will exchange ice packs if needed. On site food options are handy and there is a decent variety.

Entertainment is good for the kids. Pools are also good. Extra activities can be paid for. Plenty to do on site. Also very close to Newquay beaches.

Expensive in summer hols but you do get a lot for your money compared to some holiday park chains.

 Excellent site. Very clean facilities.

Excellent entertainment team and location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be staying again next year (2019).

Staff all helpful and friendly and the on site catering was first class. Thank you Hendra!

 As always a great site to visit. I've started to feel that the showers and loos could do with updating, however always immaculately clean.

We only stayed 4 nights but had a great time. Evening entertainment is class as always, but I feel the drinks could be a bit cheaper. We ended up buying drinks at Morrisons and sitting round the tent, which was still nice.

10pm curfew which is a nice touch and most people adhere to it.

Fresh water taps everywhere. Electric hook up. Dog friendly site I believe. Separate trash for dry recycling which is nice. Onsite shop can be pricey, but that's the cost of convenience. There is a Morrisons and Lidl 15 minute walk down the road + McDonalds.

Would definitely recommend A***** will be staying again next year.

 Hendra is a site we have stayed on several times before. It is a large site and has expanded considerably since we last stayed. They have a good website so I wont list all the facilities here. I will say that the toilets and shower blocks are kept very clean. Almost every time I visited there would be someone cleaning. Despite some very wet weather they did a fantastic job.

The tables in the clubhouse on an evening were not so clean and not cleared regularly apart from a glass collector. There was discarded food and litter all over the carpet and floor and under the tables. It looked like mess left by kids but should have been cleared up by somebody or better still not been thrown there in the first place. Generally the site is very well maintained and clean. The groundsmen and gardeners seemed to be working hard despite the poor weather.

As others have mentioned is does seem to be a bit cheeky to charge to use the pool on top of the price you pay for the holiday but I know Hendra aren't the only site to do this and the pool does have slides etc. Hendras tarrif is also competitive with other local sites but the drinks prices in the club etc were way too high. My main concern now is the site is too big for the current facilities. I think a larger clubhouse or bars and bigger arcade are now needed.

More things for older children and teenagers would be welcomed particularly for the evenings. We found the entertainment not to be as good as previous times but obviously children grow up so it was the adult entertainment that was lacking this time.

Overall this is a good site and we will definitely return and continue to recommend to others.

 We visited Hendra during the Easter holidays and were very surprised by how great it was.

We didn't take our own tent this time but stayed in one of their static caravans. The caravan we picked was a Seaton 3 bed and it was brand new for the season.

The campsite was spotlessly clean and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Food at the restaurant was good and the evening entertainment was pretty good considering we are not really into it.

Only thing I would say is that you have to pay to use the swimming pool. We regularly go to France on holiday and all the swimming pools are obviously free. Paying to use the on site pool is a little bit of a cheek in my opinion but apart from that we had a fantastic holiday.

 On arrival we were greeted by helpful reception staff. The site was very well presented and easy to find just off from the main road.

Driving to the pitch, in Chestnut field, you could tell the site was well maintained. Chestnut field itself was relatively flat, with a gentle single direction slope. The pitches are generous allowing multiple (site guided) pitching arrangements for tents.

Honestly speaking, we found that the toilet block near to Chetnut and Oak (I think) fields let the camping side of things down a little compared to facilities at other sites we have used. Shower cubicles were cramped with no real dry area. The showers in the family area we more generous still however without an area where the floor didn't get wet.

Whilst that doesn't matter too much, trying to deal with children getting them and their feet dry was cumbersome. Not a major issue, but for 2016 I know much better is possible. Also, little details such as one hand dryer in each of the gents, ladies and familiy blocks simply isn't enough at busy times. Especially as the hand dryer in the family area was over the bench where people had frequently put clothes or sat children.

The indoor pool was excellent, good changing facilities (the floor was being regularly mopped but there was a constant stream of outdoor shoes leaving mud and grass everywhere), great slides and features in the pool. The outdoor pool was also heavily used on the sunny days but we did not brave it this time!

The shop on site was well stocked and had fresh baked goods each morning.

We didn't use any of the other facilities, cafe, restaurants or bar as we ventured out into Newquay or BBQ'd most nights. The location of the site is excellent for quickly travelling east or west.

We would keep Hendra in mind for a future stay, however we might look for less of a holiday park site. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay at Hendra.

 This site has everything. Our daughter loved the arcade and there was always something to do in the evening.

Possibly due to the size not all areas were very clean but this may be down to the clients rather than the efforts of the staff. On a number of occasions people had left tables with food on after a meal. Instead of clearing away their mess it was left for the birds to peck at. You may be on holiday but the simple courtesy of clearing your mess off a table would not have gone a miss.

The language of some of the children on site and behaviour was also to be taken into account. The site attracted large numbers of people who wanted to let the kids off the reins and on a site like this why not. If you choose this site then be prepared, it won't be a quite stay and even our daughter found some of the other children quite intimidating and she is not shy in coming forward. I believe she picked up a couple of new words that have now been edited out of her vocabulary.

I could not fault the facilities, though busy there was a lot to do every night.

The only thing that spoilt the stay was the cleanliness of the caravan. At one point I rubbed my foot across the carpet to find hair rolling up under my foot. Yuk! A quick call to the reception resulted in an almost instant clean throughout at a time of our choosing. If only it had been done before check in and there would have been a 10/10 review as the van itself was almost new and had everything going for it.

All in all a great stay if a little loud and rather expensive.

 I've stayed at hendra a few times. The park is really clean. The staff are helpful and can't do enough to help you. I haven't been to the entertainment but I've heard its really good.

The shop has just about everything you could need. You can hire things you might if forgotten. The only bad thing is WiFi signal, its really bad.

 As a 1st time camper, I really didn't know what to expect. There were 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 kids (age 3 and 6). Upon arrival, we were quickly given our pitch no. And site location. The customer service was quick and friendly.

Our pitch was located against the edge of the pitch field and slightly sloped. This caused my kids to roll towards me in the middle of the night. Also, walking around the inside of the tent was a bit of an inconvenience. There was drinking water facility located near our pitch which was great.

The shower block was located close by too. The whole of the park was very clean and tidy. The main entertainment block was adequate, but finding seating would mean turning up early and staying in your seats unless you wanted to lose them.

The cost of the drinks and food in the park was extortionate, as a 1st time camper we had no cooking facility and was dependant on eating out. Something I will not do again. The play park for the kids was good and never overcrowded.

The outdoor swimming pool was signed as being 22 - 24 degrees, I would definitely argue that. As my kids lips turned blue after about 5 mins of being in the pool, bating in mind the whole week we were there was sunny and next to no clouds.

The indoor pool was great value, we went inside when my kids didn't enjoy the outside pool. The prices in the local shop was reasonable with freshly baked croissants in the morning, there were delicious too. All in all, I would probably return to this park and recommend it to others.

The staff are friendly and welcoming, the kids were kept entertained. But I would definitely be asking for a level pitch.

 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.
