Wildlife & Nature To Explore
Owls, deer, kingfishers, butterflies, foxes & more
Our aim is to protect the environment in which we live and to encourage the wildlife which exists and is attracted to our local area. As a holiday park, we are committed to minimising the impact we make on our natural environment.
Conservation Award At The GOLD Level
We are delighted that Professor David Bellamy selected Perran Springs Holiday Park to receive his important and prestigious Conservation Award at the GOLD Level. We held the GOLD Award (2009 – 2013). This award is granted only to holiday parks which help protect and enhance the natural environment. As Professor Bellamy stated to us:
“Congratulations on your Gold Award – I am deeply impressed by your continued commitment to conservation. Very well done.” Comments from our assessor included: “A well run, neat and tidy park with well spaced pitches and top quality facilities where the owners are able to give personal attention to visitors.” “The‘open grassland area’ comprises several acres of wildflower around the lakes and (nature) pond. Here there is a tremendous range…” “I think you might be surprised by the full extent of wildlife on this park.”

Wildlife & Nature Holidays
We actively encourage wildlife to flourish and leave areas throughout the park and some hedgerows to nature.
We also manage areas around the lake meadow to promote biodiversity of animal and plantlife, by planting native species where of benefit and carefully maintaining ‘wild’ areas.
We also have our own private access to a public footpath which runs through the Carn Moor Nature Reserve and Conservation Area, adjacent to the park. This is an area classified by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust as “an important flowering heathland and wetland”, part of the Tywarnhayle Common.The short walk is described by DEFRA: as one “which supports the insectivorous Round Leaved Sundew, Fragment Orchid, Royal Fern and other rare plants such as Dorset Heath (Erica Ciliaris).” Nearby there is also an “excellent area of drier heath, also rich in wildlife and flora”.
