The joy of long summer days in Cornwall is what dreams are made of. Deep in this beautiful county is a caravan park called Nancolleth “a little piece of heaven”. My wife and I have owned a holiday home here for 12 years. Nancolleth is kept to a very high standard and is a very well run Friendly Park. In beautiful gardens, different to any caravan park you have ever seen. I have tried to give my opinion of Nancolleth. One word will sum it up “unique”.
