No, you go directly to the Bungalow, you do not need to “check in”.  Reception is worth a visit at some point, as they have lots of information about the park, and local area.

Accidents happen, all we ask is you let us know, we can then make sure it has been fixed/replaced before new guests arrive. Obviously, please let us know asap if something is broken, so that we can arrange tradesmen to visit.

Is there any entertainment?

During school holidays there is fantastic kids entertainment.  Lots of activities during the day as well as evening entertainment. There are normally live singers and entertainers on a weekly basis.

Out of season, Hengar usually has a singer/band on a Friday and/or Saturday nights.

Will I need a car?

Yes you will, there is very little within walking distance, the nearest train station is Bodmin approximately 20 minutes away.  To explore Cornwall, you really do need a car to get around.

How many bedrooms does the bungalows have?

Each bungalow have two bedrooms, one double and one twin.

Are the bungalows suitable for winter breaks?

Yes. The bungalows have double glazed windows and are insulated.  There is a night storage heater, plus there are individually controlled electric heaters in every room. (Electricity is included in the price).

Are all the properties on Hengar Manor Country Park up to the same standard?

No, as the majority of the properties on the site are privately owned, they vary hugely in quality.  We believe our properties are some of the best bungalows on the site, not only for decor, fixtures and fittings, cleanliness is second to none and we feel they are the best equipped, with baby spoons and cups, flasks, DVDs and books available to you free of charge.

About Us

Marie is originally from Blisland, a small village approximately 2 miles from Hengar Manor and the majority of her family still live locally.  Paul is from Axbridge, Somerset and we have a son Ruben.  We now live on the outskirts of Launceston, so not too far away.

We have always wanted to own a holiday home and looked for many years, but stopped searching when we drove up Hengar Manor’s driveway.

We bought our first bungalow, number 58 back in 2010, Uncle Willy decorated it for us and it is affectionately known as “Ru’s Pad”,

In 2011, we were luckily enough to purchase Bungalow 79, “Ru’s New Pad”, again Uncle Willy laid floors etc for us, whilst Paul took on the job of painting!!

We have spent a lot of time at Hengar and have always felt at home there, Marie found out that her Grandad used to rent the land either side of Hengar’s driveway back in 60’s/70’s!

We hope you enjoy our bungalows as much as we do.

Please do not hesitate to contact Marie either by phone 07858 895165 or email [email protected] 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Marie, Paul and Ruben.
