- Spacious site between farm and woodland on the Lizard Peninsula
- A couple of minutes' drive from Mullion and five miles from Helston
- Two shower and toilet blocks with free hot water,
Mulling over a trip to Cornwall but want to avoid the hordes? Pitch up at peaceful Franchis Holiday Park just outside the village of Mullion on the lovely Lizard Peninsula, where generously-sized accommodation areas across four acres mean you’ll never know the peril of having a stranger snoring two feet away from your precious precious face. We make no promises about your other half...
Franchis Holiday Park is set between farm and woodland, with well-kept amenities including two shower and toilet blocks with free hot water, a free freezer for ice packs, a launderette usable for a small extra charge, and numerous taps all around to save a long walk in the morning to fill up the kettle (always a bonus).
For shops or eating out, Mullion is within a couple of minutes’ drive and the town of Helston is five miles away; tourist info is on site too if you want to head further afield.
Books are around to borrow too if you’ve forgotten your bedtime reading, but you’ll have to read by torchlight as lighting on the campsite is kept to a minimum for full appreciation of the night sky and the local wildlife. Reading by torchlight while bats and owls fly and hoot overhead? Now that’s also a bonus…

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From Exeter, take the A30 then A39, past Truro to Helston, from which please follow signs for Lizard (A3083). Stay on this road and the campsite is about 5 miles along on the left, shortly after The Wheel Inn.
It’s Cornwall, so the area around Franchis Holiday Park is laden with beaches, coves, sightseeing, surfing and walking: just south of Mullion village lie the Predannack Downs with cliffs along to the picture-perfect Kynance Cove, and the South West Coast Path runs a couple of miles from the campsite.
The River Helford and its valleys are a few miles to the east; look out for Frenchman’s Creek, used as the setting for Daphne Du Maurier’s historical novel of the same name.
Comely villages are dotted all around this part of the west Cornwall coastline, including the old fishing village of Cadgwith and its 300 year old Cadgwith Cove Inn, dishing up lobster and seafood landed that day.
Mullion, closest to Franchis Holidays, is the biggest village in the Lizard and the town of Helston should be on the visit list for a taste trip to sample Spingo, the local brew.
A drive of 13 miles brings sightseers to the bigger settlements of Falmouth and Penzance, with countless coves, Cornish attractions and activities for land and sea: gardens, galleries, castles, theatres and museums are all here, with Land’s End and the legendary St Michael’s Mount close to hand.
Poldark, the only complete underground tin mine in Cornwall, is at Penzance for delvers into Cornish history, while the China Clay Country Park is along the coast at St Austell.
