    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. The 300 open top bus travels to Penzance, from there is takes the coastal route Via St Ives to Lands End and accepts bus passes.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora or fauna. 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

Just had a brilliant weekend here. Walked both days we were here. The lady warden was most helpful explaining to us how to reach the Coastal path. Walked into Sennen Cove and Lands End the first day and caught the bus back to the site and went the other way towards Cape Cornwall the next day, walking back across the fields. Lucky with the weather and enjoyed a beautiful sunset on Friday night. Immaculate site, well kept grass and clean facilities. Strongly recommend a visit.

FANTASTIC! On arrival I added an extra night and 4 extra guests without any problems or the need to phone anyone. I spent 15 awesome days at the site & loved having Angie & Brian (& especially my little saviour Lucas) as neighbours! I agree with Angie that the showers are very limited and the drive is tight, but as I knew this before I arrived, I was happy to accept this but I agree that others (NOT the site team!) need to learn how to clean up afterwards. What I didn't expect & it came as a BIG! shock, was to fall hopelessly in love with the site & the surrounding area. I miss it every day. Take my advice & walk down to the beach, it's well worth the investment. I will definitely be back & wish it was open over Christmas & New Year. This is my absolute favourite UK site! & the advice I was given by the Assistant Warden on how to silence my vibrating awning straps (put one twist in & they won't vibrate) will impress me forever! THANK YOU! :)

Very friendly and helpful wardens.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Very friendly and helpful wardens. Although there are not a lot of toilets and showers on site they were of a high standard and very clean. The site entrance/access is not the best, but we made it ok with a 29ft motorhome. Just take a little care and a little time. The pitches are reasonably level and the whole site is well cared for. Being perched up on the cliffs I can imagine that strong winds would cause a few problems, but thankfully, non when we were there. The motorhome service point is easily accessed and well laid out. Overall a very nice site.
