Just what is it that keeps people coming back to Hentervene and North Cornwall?

The North coast of Cornwall is famous for its rugged coastline, absolutely gorgeous scenery, beaches and countryside. There is nowhere quite like it whatever the time of year. Hentervene is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in a coastal village called Crackington Haven, just 2 miles from the beach. We have wonderful countryside views, and with the A39, one of the main arteries through Cornwall 4 miles away, we are not only easy to get to, but the best of what Cornwall has to offer is within easy reach.

Hentervene is in a rural, coastal location, peace and quiet as standard. Below are just a few links and suggestions to get you started, we do of course hold a lot more information on site. There is something to suit, whatever the weather. On the other hand, if it is just a peaceful location you are searching for, we have it in spades. We used to love our holidays in Cornwall, so much so, we ended up buying a park down here!

Stargazing!

Okay, not often a priority for choosing a holiday destination, but we have some of the darkest nights in the country, and weather permitting, the milky way looks absolutely phenomenal.  Just sit outside on a warm summer evening, (or even a cold winter one!) watching the meteors streak over head. If you are not used to truly dark skies, you wont believe it.

We do not have a lighting system around the park, just low level solar lights, so there is no light pollution, just peace and quiet and the nights sky. We have lost count how many people have said they have never slept so well!
