    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

Worth Noting

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

This review is for Sennen Cove

Since we arrived on site we have experienced gales, sun and overcast cold days but the location can�t be spoiled by a bit of adverse conditions. With the best beaches and views this part of Cornwall is hard to fault. There are many attractions nearby that can be useful on those less than perfect days. I consider this site to be the gem of the West Country.

This review is for Sennen Cove

We arrived at sennon cove site and had a really warm welcome from all the wardens. Fez showed us to our pitch explained everything to us and showed where the facilities are. We had a bit of trouble with our awning due to the strong wind so Andy and fez came to our rescue and help put it up, so thank you both so much. The facilities at this site are spotless and warm the team do a great job. There is plenty to do at this site like flambards the theme park and sennon cove beach is lovley in hot weather. The only issue is the wind because your on the coast and it�s strong so if you take an awning take storm straps but worth a visit it�s an amazing little campsite. A big thank you to all the team at sennon cove your all great.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Stayed here during Easter break for three nights, in a tent with my children. Very well located for Lands End, Minack Theatre, Penzance, and St. Michael's mount, all of which are no more than 15 minutes drive away. We had a very warm welcome and the facilities were spotless. The site is exposed and we had very strong winds whilst we were there, so make sure if you are in a tent that your tent can withstand this. The site wasn't busy when we visited. I imagine when full there may not be enough showers to meet demand, and if I were picky I would have liked a family shower or two as the showers were a little cramped when I was trying to shower my two children and myself. I did like the indoor washing up area, which was kept very warm, and the laundry facilities were handy. All in all, I'd recommend the site and we had a lovely stay.

This review is for Sennen Cove

This site is lovely. Not too large, quiet and secluded, with a warm welcome. We like to use local buses and walk when possible, but we are not hikers! The local bus was superb! It ran on time and the bus stop was just at the end of the short lane, but you do not have to worry about that because they drop you off and pick you up at the site entrance! The double decker bus goes to Sennen Cove, Lands End, Penzance, St Just and St Ives and is a very exciting ride! We had a lovely walk to Sennen Cove and good food in the pub, but got the bus back up the hill! We bused to St Just, again good food and walked to Cape Cornwall. Then had an exciting ride to and from a day out in St Ives. The site is very well maintained and the only small downside is that it could do with more showers, but hey, you are on holiday - relax and queue for a short while if you have to.
