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.

Friendly welcome by Wardens but not other campers,infact even saying Good Morning was beyond...

This review is for Sennen Cove

Friendly welcome by Wardens but not other campers,infact even saying Good Morning was beyond most...Facilities very clean if a little dated but more than satisfactory. The sites very exposed and baron if honest,it was very windy but thats nobodies fault. Pitchs were excellent. Too many Rule posters for me,to the point were it was beyond what is required. Biggest gripe as walker's is Geoff told us the one footpath from the site is normally blocked by the farmer,which it was!!...which meant the route to the coastal path was out of the site along a b road,no probs but then about 80 yds on the A30 with no footpath,not ideal with the large amount of traffic at high speed...infact quite dangerous. ....

Booked in for 4 nights, but left after 3 as our tent could not withstand the windy conditions.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Booked in for 4 nights, but left after 3 as our tent could not withstand the windy conditions. Very small amenities block, which could really do with an update, and maybe adding a couple more showers/toilets. Friendly staff on arrival, with spacious, level, pitches, especially important for tents! The reception sells a small selection of goods, but there is an adjacent campsite that has a well stocked shop/cafe. Great for walking on the coastal paths, and fabulous beaches, and only a 20 minute walk from the campsite. The campsite is good, but we would probably not return because of its exposed location.

A very open exposed site.

This review is for Sennen Cove

A very open exposed site. Plenty of rules and regulations to obey if you like that type of administration. Didn't feel relaxed the whole time I was there. In fact booked for 8 nights and left after 6. Not on the agenda to visit again.
