Our Holiday at Praa Sands was everything we wanted it to be, peaceful and relaxing! We enjoyed a couple of days exploring locally and visited St Michaels Mount which was very easy to get to from the site. Our caravan was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was to hand.
A very enjoyable experience. The site is well maintained and feels very friendly. The location is also spot on with a beach just a short walk away. The accommodation was excellent - very clean and spacious with good self catering facilities. We opted for the top of the range caravan but all on the site looked very nice.
We spend a very relaxing weekend at Praa Sands in September and have already recommended it to friends. The indoor pool was lovely and my husband very much enjoyed a round of golf on the 9 hole course.
Beautiful caravan modern inside nice and clean
Great place to visit the local area. Excellent site facilities .
I would say that the caravan we stayed in was the best ever. So clean, comfortable and very luxurious especially considering it was pet-friendly. Was most surprised to find a washer/dryer and dishwasher hidden amongst the kitchen cupboards, really didn't expect that! It was great to have a closed in veranda so the dog could be outside with us, without fear of her running off and, to top it all, we had a great view of the sea and surrounding countryside. Absolutely loved it.
The caravan was very clean and well equipped however it was showing signs of age.

Nice late summer break
A great relaxing off peak holiday in exceptionally well kept surroundings, The staff and friends we met previously made our holiday. The unit we were allocated was furnished to a very high standard and by far exceeded the equipment we have found in other rental properties we have stayed in.

Lodge was fantastic, very clean and modern with a fantastic view down to the sea. Only disappointment was that our 8 year old son was not allowed into the Spa bath even under our parental supervision.

Second visit this year and wasn't disappointed. The standard of caravan was excellent .Location is great for the beach and with two young children they loved every minute. The cookies and milk in the evening proved a hit with the kids. Pool facilities are of a high standard. Will definitely return next year.
We had a brilliant holiday the last week of October. We stayed in a 2 bed vip caravan. It had all mod cons and was immaculate. Having a hot tub was a real bonus looking up at the stars from the warmth. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend.
