    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 Sennon Cove Club campsite. Although a couple of miles north of Sennon 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 Sennon 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 Sennon 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.

As I said above I felt we were not trusted. Also the book said ?6.05 per adult per night.

This review is for Sennen Cove

As I said above I felt we were not trusted. Also the book said ?6.05 per adult per night. I would like to know how the sum of ?18 was reached. My husband paid and didn't challenge it. I would have done. It is a nice site but very windy. Also a bit boring, Just a field with pitches, Nothing of any interest.

I wanted to write this review because I wanted to share my experience of this site.

This review is for Sennen Cove

I wanted to write this review because I wanted to share my experience of this site. We spent a while finding the site and actually found it by following another camper who had been directed by a local lady. The area looked beautiful but very secluded and we booked on the site despite it being the most expensive of all the sites we were staying on over summer because it looked beautiful. Sadly on our arrival we were left very upset. My partner has hurt himself and was waiting to go into surgery so we were already having a bad couple of days. We drove around the site slowly trying to navigate ourselves round and we were stared at by everyone on the site, which was pristine by the way. We then pulled up when a woman marched up, stuck her head in the window and proceeded to aggressively shout at my partner. She said 'firstly, you have just gone the wrong way around the wrong way system and secondly I saw you racing around so fast, there are children here'. She proceeded to shout and said 'if I catch you doing it again I will make sure you're thrown off site'. Now, considering the fact we hadn't even got out the van to check in, we were extremely upset and I simply said to my partner, lets go. So we did and we parked up while I calmed down. I then called the centre and spoke to the friendliest lady who apologised for our experience and refunded our deposit as a gesture of good will. She did ask why we didn't stay to sort it out and as I explained, how could we knowing that lady was there? We are on holiday, we didn't want to be abused like that? She had every right to address those issues with us, but in a reasonable way, we weren't racing at all, and if you saw our van you would know we can't! Sadly we didn't stay, but it did look a nice site and the lady on the phone was lovely. Sadly, the terrifying shouter ruined it for us.

We received a friendly welcome from the staff and were given a choice of pitches. Reading reviews beforehand we were expecting a windy site so took extra storm straps for our awning but luckily these were not needed during our stay. The site facilities were clean and tidy, the only trouble being that as it was peak season you did need to get up early to avoid queues for the showers (only 3 male & 3 female). It's a lovely walk, with good views, from the campsite down to Gwynver beach then along to Sennen Cove (and Lands End if you want a longer walk). We found it best to walk to Sennen Cove as the parking actually in the village is very busy and tight for motorhomes. Locally we visited places such as Geevor Mine, Mousehole, St Michaels Mount, St Ives, and Minack Theatre, and further afield Trebah Gardens and The Eden Project (which is about 1.5 hours away) Overall we would recommend staying at Sennen Cove Campsite and even though the campsite was full it never seemed too noisy or crowded.

We enjoyed an 8 night stay in a tent in August. The site is open, and compact.

This review is for Sennen Cove

We enjoyed an 8 night stay in a tent in August. The site is open, and compact. Very friendly and helpful staff. Facilities clean - washrooms not brand new but were absolutely fine. Small playpark (the type you often find at C&CC clubs, with a slide and swing) and also a games field. The site is quite exposed and so we made sure to pitch our tunnel tent away from the prevailing wind. The location is excellent - easy to find, shops a short drive away, and lots of walks, beaches and attractions within the area. One nice point is that you can walk directly to the sea across fields and down a steep path.
