Trevornick celebrates 60 years

Robert and Richard Hartley

Trevornick Holiday Park at Holywell Bay has been celebrating its 60th anniversary by carrying out 60 ‘acts of kindness’.

Six decades ago in 1963, Mr & Mrs Hartley bought a farm in Holywell Bay called Trevornick. The farm came with a condition – they had to allow a Boy Scout Troop to camp in their field every summer! Fast forward 60 years and Trevornick Holiday Park is now so much more than just a campsite, welcoming over 20,000 guests through its gates every season.

Now owned by Mr & Mrs Hartley’s sons, Richard and Robert Hartley, they’ve been reflecting on the campsite’s humble beginnings and to thank everyone for their support, they’ve been giving back throughout the year with 60 acts of kindness for guests and the local community alike.

So far, these acts of kindness have included gifting a free night’s stay at one of Trevornick’s self-catering cottages to an inspiring man walking the British coastline to raise money for charity. The team have also carried out beach cleans, donated to local food banks and built extra bird boxes.

Alongside this, they’ve also been surprising guests with randomly placed ‘Diamond Tickets’.

“Diamond Tickets have been hidden throughout the park as a way to reward our wonderful visitors by offering them a fantastic mix of gifts and giveaways,” explained Robert Hartley.

“So far this year, guests have enjoyed free drinks at on site bar The Farm Club to free holiday stays, and so much more. We’ll continue to surprise and delight our guests until we close the park for the season at the end of October.”

Trevornick also commissioned Healeys to craft its very own Cornish Cyder, which guests can now purchase on site and enjoy in the comfort of their accommodation.
