The ‘Paradise Apartment’ is within Glanmor House, which is nestled at the heart of Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary, home to the World Parrot Trust.
The award-winning sanctuary is home to an amazing collection of over 130 species of birds many of them parrots, plus Red Pandas, Asian Otters, Red Squirrels and farm animals.
This is your very own wildlife themed holiday! We can arrange for you to have entry to the Park during your holiday (see below), plus a guided tour by owner Nick Reynolds and exclusive access out of standard visiting hours.
Glanmor House was built by the famous ‘Harvey’s of Hayle’, who made beam engines for Cornwall’s tin mines. The sheltered Victorian walled garden made it the ideal place for Mike and Audrey Reynolds to start a paradise for birds back in 1973 where palms, tree ferns and a host of colourful exotic plants thrive.

Hayle is on Cornwall’s north coast, five miles from the holiday resort of St Ives and seventeen miles from Land’s End.
The town name ‘Hayle’ derives from the Cornish heyl, meaning estuary. Hayle’s position by the sea and its 3 miles of golden sandy beaches make it an ideal holiday destination. Gwithian beach near Godrevy is picturesque and a popular area for water sports including surfing, windsurfing and bodyboarding. The whole coast can be walked using the South West Coast Path, from St Ives to Hayle and on to Portreath via the cliffs known as Hell’s Mouth.
The estuary in Hayle is called the ‘Saltings’, and it can be viewed from afar while you are at Paradise Park. It is home to a wide variety of wetland birds and is especially famous for winter migrants.
The Towans sand dunes are home to many butterfly species, glow worms and orchids, and they are one of 57 nature reserves in Cornwall managed by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
