    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.

We had a good welcome and introduction to the site and were shown to our pitch.

This review is for Sennen Cove

We had a good welcome and introduction to the site and were shown to our pitch. There were plenty of pitches on grass with hardstanding. We chose a grass pitch for our motorhome and being dry, it was fine. The site was very quiet and relaxing. We didn't buy the onsite wifi as we were not sure how often we;d be staying on sites with it on. The site was clean and tidy and just a couple of miles from Sennen Cove and Lands End. The only negatives were no milk in the shop which meant a walk to the next campsite which had a bigger shop and a non working hand dryer... but thats being very picky. Would certainly stay again! And I would make sure I had more milk!

This review is for Sennen Cove

Great Site but the BARRIER is an accident waiting to happen as the Pin works itself loose in the wind, so that if you are on your own it could easily come down on you. Senior managers have been informed but they have not responded to this H+S problem. OTHER WISE the site is great, great staff, facilities and views. Only minor comment relates to the hours of closure of the facilities, which seem to be on the long side.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Two minor points - The site has a manually operated barrier, it defaults to DOWN position, making it potentially dangerous, (it could fall on somebody or a vehicle if not held up or the bolt put in the hole, it is crudely made and has catch points for hands!! They have been waiting ages for a replacement that will I am told comply with H&S - but that is YET TO COME. Meanwhile, if a warden is around they open the "monster barrier" for campers! Second: There is a lot of LEVEL ground, but the areas specifically for tents seem to be 50% Sloped - this is not good for people effectively sleeping on the ground, nor is it good for putting a motorcycle on it's stand - ironically, the dog walking area is completely level!! Perhaps they should move the fence over and use the dog walking place for tents and put the dogs on slope (they would not complain). Message to C&C Club - "Please fix the barrier urgently before there is a nasty accident"
