Cardinney Caravan & Camping Park joins Tranquil Parks
We’re delighted to announce our newest member, Cardinney Caravan & Camping Park. Set in open farmland in the beautiful Cornish countryside just outside Penzance, it’s a perfect base for exploring the most south-westerly tip of the country. Beautifully landscaped grounds, trees and mature hedges for privacy make the park an ideal setting for a relaxed getaway.
The 2022 season, starting 1 April, will be the first as an adult only park. “We decided we’d like to have just adults so that we can offer guests a quiet time.” explained Colin White. Colin and his wife Trudy have owned the park since 2018. It’s managed by their son William.
The family previouly had small CL near Bodmin. When they wanted something bigger, however, they weren’t allowed to develop it and therefore had to find a bigger park.
At Cardinney, there are 70 pitches on the 5 acre site. The park has hardstanding and grass pitches suitable for caravans, motorhomes and tents. Some pitches are serviced with electric hook-up and drinking water.
The park has an enclosed area for dogs, a licenced shop and a smart amenities block. There’s also an excellent pub about 30 minutes’ walk away.
A feature of the park is the amount of mature hedging. This provides privacy for the spacious pitches, as well as wildlife habitat, not to mention a great deal of work for Colin and the team!
“Ths year we’ve been replacing the damaged and dying hedges with new ones” he says, adding that looking after the hedges is one of the biggest jobs on the park.
Before moving to Cornwall, the White family were in Midhurst, West Sussex and before that, Hersham in Surrey. Colin’s previous job was fixing showers.
In addition to the gardening work, recent refurbishments include a new security barrier and CCTV. Plans for the future are a new pot wash and more hardstanding pitches.
Everyone at Tranquil Parks wishes the Cardinney team every success as an adult only park. Even more importantly, we hope that you, our customers, will enjoy peaceful and relaxing holidays at this lovely park.
