formerly Summer Lodge
Lively Newquay is loved by surfers, couples and families alike! It has 11 sandy beaches and is surrounded by gorgeous Cornish villages that are well worth exploring. Piran Meadows formerly Summer Lodge Holiday Park is a great base from which to travel around South Cornwall; it offers comfortable accommodation and has a lively entertainment programme for people of all ages. This part of the country has a fabulously mild climate and Summer Lodge is one of Cornwall’s most popular resorts.
The park has a large outdoor heated swimming pool suitable for all ages, and a clubhouse and bar with excellent family entertainment. There is a children’s play area and amusements as well as a handy grocery shop and launderette. Newquay offers a good variety of restaurants and pubs that cater for every taste - from fish and chips to Indian and Chinese food – and of course, a number of bakeries that sell proper Cornish pasties!
We particularly recommend the Eden Star, a superior 12 foot, three bedroomed caravan that also has additional sleeping for two people in the lounge area. It is double glazed and centrally heated with a good sized kitchen and a TV with Freeview. After a hard day’s surfing, swimming and exploring, you could pop to the fish and chip shop on the park and bring home a takeaway for a comfortable night in!
The beaches in Cornwall are legendary, whether you want a secluded cove or you’re looking to ride the waves. Castle Beach in Falmouth is south facing and perfect for a family picnic; Polzeath is a great surfing beach but also offers a gentle walk along the coastal path.

Clean and welcoming after a day out in the elements will be returning
Lee, Thaxted, Essex.
Date of stay: 2nd March 2015
Accommodation type: Wadebridge 3
Stayed at Piran Meadows in February. The resort was very quiet which was nice though it is out of season. The resort is maintained to a very high standard.
We are looking forward to staying at the resort again in the near future.
Overall a great break, little touches gave it that added bit of luxury
Alex, Ebbw Vale
Excellent caravan, when inside it felt like a lodge, very modern and we'll equipped, quiet even with 5 people staying in it, best caravan the family has ever seen in their 30+ years of this type of holidaying.
Graeme, Isle Of Wight
Great break thanks
Beautiful accommodation. We will definitely be coming again. The hot tub was lovely and exactly what we wanted.
My husband and I had an amazing time at Piran Meadows Resot & Spa. The caravan we stayed in was massive. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The hot tub was cleaned everyday and was very spacious.
The staff were warm and welcoming, we couldn't fault them. We would highly recommend having a massage at the spa.
We will be recommending Piran Meadows to everyone and will hopefully make a return visit next year.
We have stayed at the Piran Meadows Resort & Spa twice now, both times in a Wadebridge Premier 2, and will be returning again.
The accommodation was amazing, spotlessly clean and of a high standard.
Overall 10/10 and highly recommended.
The accommodation was spotless and everything you want is there especially the hot tub.
