I feel guilty leaving an average rating as so much of the site is much better than that, however it was let down in a few areas. Upon arrival at our caravan we were struck with a musty, dog smell...and proceeded to visit Looe to get some Fabreeze, after borrowing a vac cleaner and giving the carpet a real going over(there was lots of dog hair still on the carpet) the van smelt fine and was clean and good value for money. Most of the facilities were excellent and clean, we used the indoor... (read more)

We booked the gold caravan and were able to take our dog which is very unusual. On arrival the check in process was quick and we had our keys 2 hours early. Our caravan was much better than we had expected it was like home from home! This is an excellent base if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing family holiday. Our children aren't really interested in the children's entertainment as they're a bit old for it however they enjoyed the park, swimming pools and amusements. The only downside... (read more)

Hi, we went on a Fri to Mon break at Trelawne Manor Holiday Park and stopped in a caravan which I have to say was lovely and clean and spacious. The park is kept clean itself, but I have to say the arcade, childrens playgound and the swimming pool need attention as they are now looking very tired and the swimming pool/changing rooms etc were filthy. The entertainment in our opinion was poor, but found the staff very friendly and willing to assist in any way - the park is relaxing itself, but... (read more)

I own a static caravan at Trelawne Manor. Being a 'senior' I took time to have a look around at various other sites in that part of Cornwall, but kept coming back to Trelawne.
The site itself is idylic. The old manor stood in wooded and lawned grounds which at certain times of the year are awash with bluebells and snowdrops.
The old manor itself is very well maintained, and used as the offices, entertainment centre etc. The park itself is set on what used to be the lawns around the... (read more)

Hello, We went to Trelawne Manor last week (16-23rd of october 2010) and we stayed in a private rented caravan. We were meant to stay from the saturday and leave the saturday, but we left a day early here is why. When we arrived, the reception staff took 20 mins to get our keys. The swimming pool changing rooms were cold and dirty, and only had a tiny little heater on the wall. The showers (in the ladies) were freezing.

Caravan was acceptable but the company was a little dodgy. There was also very little in the way phone reception so that was a bit useless. My travelling companion had to borrow someones to phone 'home'. Though i think he missed a digit out. Not to worry.Very nice part of the UK but the people arent exactly friendly. Id go as far to say downright disrespectful.
Anyway, crashing on, you live and learn!! (read more)

Apartment was in a poor state, mould across the ceiling and the walls had streaks all down as if they had been power washed. Very shabby. Complained and was given a caravan, this looked very tired and shabby too but a little better than the apartment. Think the whole place needs a make over. Disappointed that you couldn't get food until 6pm and NO restaurant.
The only good thing was that the STAFF were very pleasant. (read more)

Recently stayed at Trelawne Manor with my husband and 1 year old daughter. Booked a Bluebell Apartment and we was absolutely appalled at the state of it. It was extremely dirty (even though it was supposed to have been cleaned), it smelled damp and fusty, was very cold and there was paint peeling off the ceilings. We'd driven for 6 hours to get there and on arrival, we felt like turning straight back around and driving home. The bathroom was covered in every human hair imaginable along... (read more)

We (myself, my husband & 12yr old Son) have just returned from a very relaxing long weekend booked through the Sun newspaper.
The 1st thing to be aware of is that all the roads leading to the park, for a fair few miles, are single track lanes. We didn't find them to be overly busy and there are frequent passing areas but the local buses and delivery vehicles do speed along.
The park itself is beautiful and well kept. There are many open grassy areas and trees. The caravans aren't too... (read more)
