Unashamedly full-on, Haven’s Perran Sands site on the west coast of Cornwall has masses to offer families, including a waterpark with indoor and outdoor pools (one for kids) and flumes, its own surf school, a climbing wall, adventure golf, kart hire, crafts sessions and more.

Accommodation is in a choice of mobile homes (from budget to luxury) and chalets, or there are glamping-style options: yurts, ‘supertents’ (pre-erected tents with fridges and cooking facilities), safari tents and geodomes. The site’s biggest asset, however, is its direct access to a wonderful three-kilometre Atlantic beach.

Alternative suggestion: Haven Riviere Sands - family holiday park offering caravans with prime sea views and direct access to the sandy beach of St Ives.


Haven Perran Sands is at Perranporth, 13km south of Newquay with its train station and airport.
