    was thinking of booking a caravan at havens perran sands and was wanting to know if the site and surrounding area would be suitable for my 17yr old daughter who is in a wheelchair.

    thanks will take a look

    Not been to stay but know the surrounding area (as long as its Newquay, i hope so!) Facilities look clean as I have taken an extended rest stop there when i found the arcade and shop . . . . (pool tables and air hockey)

    Its nicely located next to Perranporth (nice little coastal town - quite hilly in places but main street and run up to the beach are fine) but 10 mins drive or so from Newquay itself.

    Love it round there . . . .

    Thanks grc,,says on site there is a sloped path to the beach,,did you notice if this was concrete or sand (if you used it)

    My lass grandson and i stayed there last year its not verry wheel chair frendly espesialy if you like the beech ,you may be able to get the chair down but you will need someone like Andy Mcnab to get you back up ,that sand bank its a killer mate

    Path to beach is concrete but it is steep.

    the concret path is steps its even harder and i only had a push chair.

    ether way its a killer even if you are fitt

    Thanks for your replies,,just found a video on google which shows the slope to beach,,dont look as steep as the hill i have to take her up most days,,,,my daughters not very heavy and her manual chair is quite light(wouldnt even try to get her electric chair on beach as it weighs a ton and would sink into the sand) /suppose if it is too steep we could drive to 1 of the local towns and get on beach there.
    Might even get in the sea as there is no chance i would take kids in sea at skeggy lol

    cheers
