Praa Sands Gold Club and Holiday Park, Penzance

The opening of a health and leisure centre complex at Praa Sands Holiday Park completes the owners’ commitment to provide its residents and visitors with additional leisure facilities

As a further investment in its holiday locations, residential and holiday park specialist The Haulfryn Group decided to replace the old clubhouse at Praa Sands to include a new health and leisure complex with bar and restaurant, entertainment room, swimming pool, spa, steam room and fitness suite.  The directors were clear that it should be highly sustainable, creatively designed and meet the needs of its holiday home owners.  Pinelog’s design was chosen in competition against other architects due to its exciting and adaptable design.  Pinelog and Haulfryn Group also have a history of very successful collaboration on similar projects at other holiday parks.
