With the season turning to Spring, we are all getting excited with the thoughts of the upcoming summer seasons, and it promises to be an extra special one for us here at Whistlefish. This year we are delighted to opening the doors to a brand new Whistlefish gallery, located on site at the award winning Hendra Holiday Park in the heart of Cornwall.
The 5 Star Hendra Holiday Park is the biggest and best known holiday park in Cornwall and in 2022 is proudly celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. It is an exciting time for Whistlefish to be joining the vast array of on-site attractions and activities and with this in mind, we thought it would be great opportunity to learn some more about this fantastic place to stay, and the fun things you can get up to when you holiday at Hendra.
For over 50 years Hendra Holiday Park has provided a fantastic family vacation spot in North Cornwall. With so much to do at the holiday park, as well as around it it makes the ideal location for your annual get away! They offer camping and caravan pitches suitable for any size group of holiday makers!
Hendra has many pitches to choose from, stretched across 80 acres of landscaped parkland in the Cornish countryside. Whether you're bringing a large family to stay in a holiday home, luxury lodge or compact 2-man tent, they've got you covered!
There's plenty of on site activities at Hendra you don't even need to leave the site to enjoy a great holiday!
