    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.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and always had time to answer questions.

This review is for Sennen Cove

The staff were very friendly and helpful and always had time to answer questions. The facilities were well maintained and clean, however our only gripe is that they need a few more shower and washing up sinks as there was usually a queue for both, but as said they were spotless. The site itself is generally quiet, but if your in a tent you could hear the kids playing later at night (though this was okay as you knew it would stop come bed time :-)). This is another plus however as there is plenty to do for the kids with a playing field and a little swing park to keep them entertained. The site is literally minutes away from Lands End and the Local beach with glorious white sand and the Cornish Coastal walk with dramatic scenery. A bit further you have the Minack theatre (book early)which is well worth a visit and a lovely little hidden Cove Beach in Porthcurno. It's also not far from Penzanze and St Ives. This is a lovely site for those who either want to relax and chill or for those who want to get out and about. This was my first trip to Cornwall and I loved it.

Lovely site, perfectly situated for Lands End. We found it very windy.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Lovely site, perfectly situated for Lands End. We found it very windy. The welcome was extremely friendly and the team were exceptionally helpful. Shame the the Sennen Cove site is not actually at Sennen Cove, you really need to drive to get there. And for us, many of the dog friendly beaches were simply inaccessible (too steep to get to). So top marks to the team, fewer for the location.

This review is for Sennen Cove

We have just returned form a 7 night stay in Sennen Cove. The campsite was easy to find, well located and beautifully kept. The toilets and showers are in need of updating, but were very clean with plenty of hot water, and showers that don't keep turning off! The site is well located for the beach, and although its a long way down its worth the walk, especially in the evening when the sun is setting. While we were there our three children went to the Smart surf school down in Sennen Cove, only 5 minutes away in the car. They loved it, well worth the money. We were lucky with the weather, and came away wishing we could spend longer as there is so much to see in the area. The dog walk on the campsite is probably one of the best we have been to, and although the site became quite busy it never felt over crowded, and everyone we met only had good things to say. Well done Camping and Caravan Club, another campsite we have on our list to return to!
