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.

I stayed here for the second half of my holiday. We had a brilliant stay and a very warm welcome. My daughters had a great time playing at the swings and meeting the other children. I would happily recommend this site.

Just a one night stop at the start of a cycle LeJoG. Peaceful and great beach and surf within a 10-15min walk across the fields. If you get the weather I imagine you could happily spend time here. Handy for trips to Sicily Isles

Fantastic stay, peaceful site in gorgeous surroundings.

This review is for Sennen Cove

Fantastic stay, peaceful site in gorgeous surroundings. We stayed an extra couple of nights as so nice. It was a little windy at night as the site is quite open, so windbreaks would be useful but did not bother us. Facilities are very clean, showers perfect nice and clean and functional. Vanity area in toilets ok but could do with an extra hair dryer as there is only one, and a couple of power points for straighteners would be useful. The cleaning time of 10.30-12.00 when facilities are closed I would think could be a problem in high season as it seems a long period of time and there are only 3 showers for the whole site. It wasn't an issue for us. Dish cleaning area well equipped and clean, great shop with the essentials and the ability to order pasties got the next day. A cracking site and we definitely be back.
