Advantages Cheap and cheerful
Disadvantages none so far
We have stayed at three different John Fowler holiday parks in Cornwall (ang again next week) and have had a really good holiday. For us, we just want a base to come home to at night, as we spend the days out and about sightseeing.There are 15 John Fowler Holiday Parks in Devon and Cornwall. Some of them in woodlands, some of them near beaches. All of them conveniently located.
I am only going to mention the three that we have stayed in.ST IVES HOLIDAY VILLAGE
St Ives is about 2 miles away. This park is near Hayle. We stayed here in September 2003. We payed around £70 for a four night break, Mon-Fri.The chalets are set in over 100 acres of woodland, and there are squirrels running around outside your front door.
When you check in at reception they give you the usual pack of key, map, and leaflets on local attractions.We stayed in a very basic Bronze chalet. This had one double bedroom and one twin bedroom. There was also a sofa-bed
There was a large heated indoor pool and the usual Club house with bar, restaurant, shop, takeaway etc. For children there is the Foxy Club and there is entertainment every evening for adults and children alike.We enjoyed our stay here and had no cause for complaint. We visited St Ives, Lands End, Lizard Point, Fowey and many other places from here.
- Billed as a Big & Lively park. This is in the grounds of a manor house, which is now the clubhouse. We paid £96 for a four-night break, Mon-Fri.
TRELAWNE MANOR HOLIDAY PARK
The park is near LooeWe stayed here in March 2004 and had no cause to complain.
We stayed in a first-floor apartment, not too far from the Clubhouse. There is ample parking outside. There are both indoor and outdoor pools here. Entertainment is provided nightly, there is the Foxy Club for children and the usual amenities of pool, arcade, crazy golf.The apartment was on the ground floor of a two-storey building, in a terrace block. There was a double and twin bedroom, with a sofa-bed in the lounge, so could sleep 4/6 people. The bathroom had a shower in it.
The kitchen was small, but perfectly equipped. We did not have a kettle, but we asked at reception and one was delivered immediately. The park had only just opened for the year, so they were not fully up and running yet.From here we visited St Austell, Charlestown, The Eden Project, Cornish Market World, Polperro, Looe, and many other places.
PERRAN VIEW HOLIDAY PARK
My partner actually proposed to me while we where there, on my birthday, so that was pretty amazing too. I should tell John Fowler, maybe they will give us a free holiday?!!!We booked a two-storey villa for £96, which sleeps 4/6 people.
