Perran Springs Wildlife And Nature
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.”
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”.
Stay At Perran Springs
For a fun camping holiday, choose one of our spacious and level camping pitches. Combined with our relaxed environment, electric hook-ups and space for your car, you’re sure to enjoy the under canvas experience. For the more traditional camper we also provide pitches without electric, but don’t worry, our superb shower facilities are just a short walk away.
Looking for a spacious touring pitch, great facilities and a peaceful location. Then book one of our level caravan touring pitches or hardstandings, all with space for your awning and car. Our award winning showers, shop, laundry and lake meadow will ensure you have everything to make your holiday complete. See our park map to choose your preferred area of the park before booking.
Exploring Cornwall in your campervan or motorhome? Then we have easy access, spacious and level hardstanding pitches which can accommodate units up to 28ft in length, with space for an awning and have a 16amp electric hook-up point.
Our 6 berth Caravan Holiday Homes, offer all the essentials for those who want a little bit more… Featuring open plan living rooms, fully equipped kitchens and either two or three comfortable bedrooms. To help you relax, the caravan includes a TV and DVD player and plenty of soft seating. With a wooden picnic bench and space for your car, you can enjoy sitting outside or dining al fresco!
Want to go camping without buying all the equipment? Then choose our pre-erected, already pitched, fully equipped Super Eurotent glamping option. Sleeping up to 6 people, they are an amazing camping adventure for families. Super Eurotents have a kitchen area with hob, microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle. Three bedroom sections and a table and chairs. Book this holiday and you will see the glamping difference.
Like the idea of camping, but not the canvas! Then our glamping pods, with parking space, provide the ultimate back to nature experience. Sleep cosily in the timber pod, wake up refreshed and take a shower in our award winning amenities. Once you’re ready for the day, just lockup your pod and maybe take a stroll around our Nature Trail and Lake Meadow, or venture out and start to explore Cornwall.
