We have just returned from a lovely weekend break at Hendra Holiday Park in Newquay, Cornwall. This was our annual Halloween break we do through the Sun newspaper, this year we chose Hendra. It was a really nice park with excellent facilities and fab entertainment, the children loved the Halloween disco and taking part in the activities. We were booked into a standard caravan, it was clean, basic and perfectly fine – just what you would expect. However, I think my days of staying in a budget caravan are over though. I’m no good with other people’s beds, funny smells and bits on the floor, I just cannot relax at all, I’m looking out for spiders constantly (there were tons of them). I think if we were to book another holiday park break we would either upgrade or look for one that had lodges, poor Mr K spent the entire 3 nights on the sofa and the kiddies were in the double bed with me.
I really love Cornwall, the views are stunning and the beaches go on forever. We spent a morning at Fistral Beach, we had a refreshing walk by the shore and then headed to our favourite pub – The Fort – for some delicious lunch. After lunch we had a mooch around Newquay and caught sight of the Zombie Walk which the children loved, we then headed back to the caravan to get ready for the Halloween disco.
The food at Hendra was excellent, they even have a takeaway menu and a cute pizza restaurant. Everything on site is right where you need it and we were literally a minute’s walk from all the entertainment and soft play.
Although I love getting away from it all and spending time with the family I always love getting home to all my home comforts. When we arrived home today I blitzed the house and got started on the dreaded washing, I felt the need to clean after being in a caravan all weekend – anyone else feel like that? We are ending our break with a Chinese takeaway tonight, my eating habits are still pretty poor after my bug but I am really looking forward to having a hot shower, exfoliating, putting some tan on and relaxing on the sofa watching a scary film.
