General

  • Simple but friendly site 10 minutes' walk from Lizard
  • Kynance Cove, Church Cove and Pentreath beach within walking distance
  • Close to an activity centre for watersports and climbing

If you’re after a stay somewhere remote and scenic, the Lizard Peninsula should certainly fit the bill – this is Cornwall’s most southerly point, so you could hardly get further away from the trappings of hectic modern life.

Almost down at the very tip of this scenic peninsula is Kynance Camping, just outside the village of Lizard and a short walk from its pubs, farm shop and places to eat. This is a great spot from which to explore the countryside and coastline of this gorgeous part of the world – a footpath/bridleway next to the site leads to the village and then on to the end of the peninsula.

Kynance Cove, Church Cove and Pentreath beach are all within walking distance of the site too, and you can get out to explore all three (plus all the bits in between) by picking up the South West Coast Path nearby for a muscle-challenging but mighty scenic hike. If that’s not quite enough activity, have a chat with the activity centre in the village, which sorts out days of coasteering, kayaking, paddleboarding and climbing.

This is a site that’s basic but friendly – the owners are often around to help and offer advice on the best beaches and other bits to do in the area. Guests are welcome to light barbecues for outdoor evenings.

    Location to Lizard and Kynance Cove.
    While we wanted a BBQ and fire pit, due to fires on the site they set up an allocated space. While annoying at first, it did mean we could still have a BBQ and fire pit safely.

    Disliked: 

    Only 1 shower per gender available during the week as bottom showers were not working. Showers often very dirty last thing at night and could do with another check around 8-9pm. Dish washing facilities were cold for the week. Lack of control over noise in the evenings - into the early hours is a bit excessive.

    -The location.
    -Friendly staff and holiday makers
    -Clean facilities
    -Rentals of fire pits
    -Basic and rural living
    -short walk to the village (5 mins)
    -short walk to the coast.
    -walk to lizards point (25 mins)
    -walk to the beautiful kayance cove (25 mins)

    It’s the perfect place to visit if you want a rustic, rural stay. There are showers and toilet facilities available. The showers on the 1st field are supplied with warm water, and cold water on the other field.
    Toilets where clean and there where enough of them for guests.
    There was no electricity which was so peaceful, we didn’t use the car for the duration of our stay.

    We will define go back to do some more exploring.

    Great location!
    We had such a lovely welcome when we arrived including information on what was nearby. From the back of the field there are footpaths leading off to the beach and nearby village with a generous choice of places to eat and drink, everything is close enough that once we arrived we didn't need our car. You can pick up the public footpaths if you want to venture further out and make a day of it, the surrounding area is absolutely stunning.
    The site itself has all you need with a small shop that is open from morning to night, the pitches are all level and very generous in size, facilities were cleaned regularly and some nights there is entertainment on site.
    Fab pop up site that we will definitely be returning to.

Local attractions

This is a splendid area for getting out into the open air of course, and there are some very fine Cornish corners within walking distance of this site – during your time here it’s very much worth making the trip to Church Cove (25 minutes’ walk), Pentreath beach (half an hour) and Kynance Cove (50 minutes). For more outdoor activities, have a chat with the folk at Lizard Adventure (15 minutes’ walk) who can organise watersports and climbing.
