We had a lovely break at February half term, we were invited to stay at Tencreek Holiday Park, Looe, Cornwall. The holiday park is just outside Looe, on the cliff top.
We have never been to Cornwall so were very excited about our trip. Tencreek was easy to find, our Sat Nav took us straight there with no wrong turns! It is about 35 minutes further west than Plymouth.
The site is very clean and tidy, Reception is right in front of you when you drive into the park. The lady was friendly and gave us our caravan key and welcome pack.
Mummy, big bro and sis were disappointed that there was no Wifi in the caravans – BT were there as we spoke, installing it so that every caravan has it.
Our caravan was a three bedroom modern one, with a gas fire in the living area, a wall heater in the main bedroom and fan heaters in the other two. There were two bathrooms – one had a loo and small sink in, the other had a large shower, sink and loo with a heated towel rail.
The caravan was well equipped and comfortable. The only complaint was that it was cold – the minute the gas fire was turned off the temperature dropped straight away. We do know though, that this is just the way it is with this type of heating in a caravan. And the weekend we stayed it was bitterly cold – in fact we had a terrible storm overnight too!
The clubhouse opened at 5pm – it was a shame that it wasn’t open in the day, we assume it is during high season. I have to be honest and say that the clubhouse was freezing inside too. Really cold, and the other people who were in there were commenting on it too. It made us not want to stay too long.
There was nightly entertainment with a children’s show, and the other children seemed to enjoy it. I am a bit shy so did enjoy watching it from our table.
We did eat in the clubhouse and the food was delicious. Freshly cooked, hot and tasty. The prices were good too.
The website says that all caravans have a sea view, and our view was stunning (except for the rain and clouds!).
There is an indoor pool on the site – we didn’t use it because we all had colds and had been unwell, but it looked really nice.
There is a small shop – not well stocked, but the basics and emergency type stuff. In the summer it might be better stocked.
The site was lovely – we would love to visit in the summer because we think it would be fantastic then. This is the same as any other UK holiday park out of season, but it was still quite busy. There is a path to walk into Looe (the road is way too windy and narrow) which would be great to do – Looe is a gorgeous, quaint little seaside village.
Because the weather was so bad, we wonder if it would be worth them opening the clubhouse during the day – in the summer they offer breakfast which would have been a nice treat to try.
There is also a large outdoor sports court which is fully enclosed and you could play football, basket ball, and other sports safely. it is a great idea and was very popular, even in February!
We highly recommend Tencreek – just be aware of the limits out of season. And try and book a caravan with central heating if you go in the winter!
