Kennack Field

General

  • Relaxed family park 10 minutes' walk from Kennack Sands
  • Licensed shop, pizza takeaway, fire baskets and chimeneas on site
  • Three amenities blocks with well-kept toilets and hot showers

If your camping and caravan checklist includes gorgeous Cornish sea views, quick access to golden beaches and so much to do for mini campers that you can fine the kids if anyone dares utter the phrase ‘I’m bored’, seasidey Chy Carne Holiday Park will tick all your holiday boxes.

This is a relaxed, spacious and spankingly clean site with a strong family focus, dog-friendly and close to acclaimed beaches like Kennack Sands as well as many of the main attractions and towns of Cornwall: Helston, Falmouth and St Austell are all within easy reach.

The kids can go Aaaarrr and clamber around the play pirate ship, get competitive at the outdoor games or kick a ball around the grassy open space, while the bigger folk can sit back and prepare the barbecue, have a campfire on one of the Chy Carne chimeneas or fire baskets, or sit back with a nosh or a sip from the newly built licensed shop (opening times and stock limited out of season).

There’s a pizza takeaway on site too if you can’t be bothered cooking (open until 11pm in peak season), so you can polish off a pepperoni before moseying along to sit over a real ale or local cider in the summer marquee bar: with its lighting, seating and cosy atmosphere you may decide to linger for a while…

The first-class facilities here have plenty of hot showers, toilets, washbasins and washing-up sinks (four, to be exact) so queues are unlikely even in peak season, and as the three amenity blocks are in different areas of the park there’ll be no need for long hikes to the toilet at night. There’s a launderette on site too with two commercial washing machines and two driers.

Chy Carne welcomes well-behaved pets.

    The view is stunning. We booked to come for a second time this year because the facilities such as the snack shack and the marquee arms were such a bonus. Sadly they had been closed for the season!😩

    A nice site with friendly and helpful staff. Toilets and showers all kept very clean.

    Disliked: 

    The fact that the shop was closed on the 1st of September but staff happy to let me in to freeze my freezer blocks. First time I've had to pay extra for using the shower!
    My tent pitch wasn't level.

    Absolutely all of it. The pitches. The staff. The setting. The state of it.
    The staff were friendly and welcoming through out our stay; a credit to the park.
    The toilet block was clean and well maintained every time I used the facilities.
    I love the bar marquee idea, it's a great way to while away a summer evening.
    Didn't get to try the food but it smelled nice and the cook was nice enough to lend me her tin opener!
    There is a little investigating to get to the beach, I kept getting lost.
    The stay was reasonably priced considering the niceness of the place. I would definitely return.

    Disliked: 

    Someone needs to oil that swing. It sounds just like my puppy if I accidentally tread on her foot!

Local attractions

The clean, safe and award-winning Kennack Sands (with lifeguards on duty during the summer months) is a 10-minute walk from Chy Carne, and has shops and cafés as well as a dog-friendly stretch on one side: hum the theme from Jaws as you spot a basking shark, or clamber up the coastal path for scenic walks in both directions.

A quick drive away is Kynance Cove which is one of the most photographed spots in Cornwall: fool folk that you’re in the Med by snapping a pic here or at postcard perfect Mullion Cove on a sunny day.

The Site of Special Scientific Interest Goonhilly Downs is on the doorstep, best known for its Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station, once the biggest in the world and still with satellite dishes that can be seen for miles: the building of a new space science centre on the site was announced in 2011.

Let the kids loose too at the Lizard Point Lighthouse, the last manned lighthouse before automation and now with a heritage centre with exhibits, displays and some of the original engines, or take them to drool over the dromedaries at Cornish Camels.

As it’s Cornwall, holidaymakers of an amphibious disposition will be in heaven with top sailing, surfing, scuba diving and other watersports along this stretch of Cornish coast, and several surf and scuba schools in the area for both newbies and water experts. Landlubbers will find plenty to do too: horse riding, bird (and shark) spotting, golf, fishing, clay pigeon shooting and more are all within reach.

Day trips include squawking at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, flying at the thrill rides of The Flambards Experience and Crealy Great Adventure Park, or browsing around the towns of Falmouth, St Ives, Penzance and Truro for seafood, shopping, more beautiful beaches and a boat ride to the ancient harbour at Marizion’s St Michael’s Mount.

Finally, round off your trip with an afternoon or evening at Penzance’s clifftop open-air Minack Theatre – squint a little bit at the amphitheatre and you could almost imagine you’re in Roman Britain…

Must see

  • National Seal Sanctuary (6.3 miles)
  • Flambards (7.0 miles)
  • Trebah Garden (7.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Glendurgan Garden (7.4 miles)
  • Penrose Estate: Gunwalloe and Loe Pool (7.7 miles)
