I think this goes back to the fact that when i was growing up, most weekends during the summer i would head off down to Newquay with my friends. Having spent many a night out on the town back in the early 90's I have forgotten how good the area actually is for families.
A good friend and work colleague of mine was planning to head down to Hendra Holiday Park with his family in April and asked if the five of us would like to join them. I had a long think, as usually during April we try to head off camping in France.
We have however decided that this year we'll have a bit of a change. We've already booked out summer holiday to France and so in April we've decided to join them in sunny Cornwall.
One of the massive plus points for us is that Hendra Holiday Park is probably around an hour or so away from where we live which makes travelling much more pleasant. We've also had a look at the indoor pool at Hendra and although you have to pay for entry, which is completely unheard of in France, the quality of the pool and slides do look rather good.
Now the kids are rather spoilt when it comes to holidays as we always try to get away to France when we can. My plan this year is to see how we get on at Hendra and then possibly book another last minute break away to France during the May half term, but that will have to wait until the last minute offers come out.
Watch this space and I will upload a variety of photos and video's once we've finished our holiday to Cornwall at Hendra Holiday Park!
