    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

Access and SatNav Advice

The site entrance is situated on the B3306, approximately 200 yards off the A30. Towing units should avoid going into Sennen 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.

This review is for Sennen Cove

The site is level and the pitches well spaced out there is a barrier at the entrance and once booked in you are given the number to use for the barrier. there are only three showers for women and no family shower room, there is a small dish washing area with only two sinks so a bit of a wait on occasion. The shop had the basics but Amanda the fish and chip lady came round on a Monday and a Thursday also visiting the site was a man in a van selling local organic strawberries who came door to door. there is a great dog walk but sadly dogs have to stay on their leads we were told about the local beach which is dog friendly and we had a stroll across a number of fields and then down a lane to find that for me the return steep climb up from the beach would have finished me off, check the details on the council dog friendly beaches information sheet as one of the beaches at St Just is no longer dog friendly something we found out after driving there and paying for the car park. Sennen cove is about a mile and a half away with a large reasonably priced car park at the top of the hill, Lands End is about another mile along the main road and costs �6 for a days parking. In the nearest large town and close together are a Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury's all selling fuel cheaper than any where else.

Getting to Land's end is easy.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Getting to Land's end is easy. There's a choice of the coastal footpath or a direct bus service, failing those there's car parking available at Land's end. The site itself is located in a great spot, far enough away from the local airport and the main road for neither to be a problem while on site. The only let down has been the A30 being notorious for accidents which effectively cuts Lands End and the Campsite off from the rest of the county when they happen. On one occasion I had to go the long way round on a very rural route due to such an incident.

This review is for Sennen Cove

It is a very windy site and we did have a lot of fog and mist, however, when it is nice the sunsets and views are fabulous. The time of cleaning the facilities has been changed and is later now so that cleaning is when people are out for the day. A lovely site when the weather is good.
