With the help of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Haven has made exploring the largest sand dune system in Cornwall easier with its free ‘Dune Detectives’ app.

Families can now discover this picturesque part of the Great British coast which is renowned for its miles of sandy beaches and home to the scenic shots seen on BBC TV’s Poldark.

The sand dune system, located on the doorstep of the company's Perran Sands Holiday Park, is home to the largest dunes in Cornwall covering around 650 hectares. They are also home to an array of wildlife including skylarks, razorbills, garden tiger moths and the quirkily named scrambled egg lichen.

The seaside stylised app utilises the phone's GPS so any visitor can keep a track on exactly where they are at any time on an interactive map.

The app also provides visitors with engaging games to play and facts at certain points throughout a user's journey.

A four-night break at Perran Sands costs from £229 for the whole family, based on a family of up to four sharing a standard two-bedroom caravan departing on September 12.
