    Top site for cycling

A campsite dramatically located right on the edge of the country, on the Atlantic coast of Cornwall.

Situated on the Land’s End Penninsula, within a few miles of both the north and south coasts of Cornwall, is where you’ll find our pretty Sennen Cove Club campsite. Although a couple of miles north of Sennen Cove, the campsite does enjoy sea views over the cove from some pitches.

Gwynver Beach is a 25 minute walk from the campsite. The beach at Sennen is a 45 minute walk away from the campsite. From there, the energetic can walk over the coastal path to Land’s End, another 90 minutes away. Land’s End is England’s most westerly point and, as well as spectacular scenery, there are many family attractions including a 4D film experience and the Monsters of the Deep exhibition. Back in Sennen Cove you can learn to surf.

Our tranquil campsite has 72 pitches and all the facilities you need - a small play area for the kids, and a playing field for ball games; a small shop selling the basics, a laundry with washing machine and dryer with an iron and ironing board also available and an indoor washing up area.

The south coast of the peninsular offers Gwenver and Porthcurno, also the Telegraph Museum and the Minack cliff top theatre and Penzance with its historic harbour areas. Also, pretty out-of-the-way fishing coves, including Penberth, Mousehole and Newlyn, with its fish festival at the end of August.

North from the campsite, a pretty but very narrow, windy road leads through St. Just and Pendeen. There are some excellent walks around the old mine workings near to Botallack and the Geevor Mine, for those with an interest in this part of Cornwall's industrial past. Further afield, via Zennor, the pretty, but very busy, fishing port of St Ives with its Tate Gallery of modern art is worth a visit

Access and SatNav Advice

The site entrance is situated on the B3306, approximately 200 yards off the A30. Towing units should avoid going into Sennen Cove as turning is difficult.

Worth Noting

Digital TV reception. A fish and chip van visits the site twice a week during high season.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

There is a farmers' market every Tuesday at Sennen Village Hall, and the butchers in St Just sells locally-reared meat.

Sennen Cove and Gwynver Beaches are perfect for surfing.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Sennen Cove and Gwynver Beaches are perfect for surfing. Please note dogs not allowed on Sennen but they are on Gwynver (which you can walk to from the campsite). Be prepared for pretty much constant wind and for weather forecasts to frequently change. You are right on the coast, high up and where sea meets land for the first time. Campsite shop is very limited but has some essentials. Good pub grub at The First and Last in Sennen. Great pizza at the Beach on Sennen Cove beach. Worth queuing after time on the beach, if not just for the view and a refreshing drink. A must visit is Cape Cornwall a few miles up the coast in St Just.

Great welcome from the team who remembered us from last year, I can recommend the village shop in St Buryan it was clean and bright with local fruit and veg. and very friendly staff. I wish there was a connecting door between the showers and the toilets so that you didn't have to go from the shower then outside to go into the toilets to brush my teeth and dry my hair, but apart from that a great site.

Sennen Cove was our last pitch on our walk from John O' Groats to Land's End.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Sennen Cove was our last pitch on our walk from John O' Groats to Land's End. We used the site as a base to complete the last 2 legs of our 4 month journey. It's location near the coast path made it an ideal spot for us. We've stayed at a lot of club sites on our journey and can honestly say that the wardens and assistant wardens were by far the most friendly, welcoming and helpful. Their approach made this one of the best sites we've stayed at. Thank you.
