Why stay here ...

We have been running Specky Wood C.L for many years and thoroughly enjoy welcoming back regular visitors (some of whom have been coming back year after year) as well as introducing new club members to this unspoilt part of Cornwall. Our 1.5 acre site is flat, has easy access and the grass is kept short. It is a well maintained, secluded, spacious site set in the quiet hamlet of Trevothan about 1 mile from Coverack.

Coverack is a beautiful Cornish fishing village with an unrushed, relaxing quality about it. There is a picturesque harbour, thatched cottages and many other attractions including a sandy beach (at low tide), rock pools to explore, windsurfing school, a popular pub, general village store, restaurants, cafes as well as speciality shops and a gallery. The village Website is certainly worth looking at, with information on what’s on and more details about the above attractions.

We are in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are conveniently positioned for the S.W coastal path. There are many attractions locally, which can be linked to if you visit our Website.

We aim to make all our visitors feel welcome and our site has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Children and animals are allowed but we ask that dogs are kept on leads whilst on the site and dog owners are responsible.

The site is  part hardstanding

Outstanding

Specky Wood
Just spent 2 nights at this amazing spacious clean and very friendly CL. The best CL we’ve stayed on so far during our tour of Devon and Cornwall. We had a very large hard standing pitch and access to our own shower/toilet room (paid extra and worth it). Perfectly placed for exploring the area on foot, easy access to coastal path and beautiful walks in abundance, found a beautiful cove and had a lovely early evening swim, very safe. The walk in to Coverack is down hill, quite steep but manageable, had dinner at the Paris Inn, excellent food but you will need to book. We will absolutely return to this site, the owners are very friendly and accommodating - hope Nicola agrees to the extension Jeff, we expect to see it completed next time we are down ! 5 stars ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great Site. Brilliant friendly owners.

Specky Wood
We have just left this great site. We loved the large pitches, clean facilities and exceptionally friendly helpful owners. The walk into Coverack is around 10-15 minutes along a back road. It is down a steep hill which is definitely doable on the way back. We love Coverack- great views, beach, pub, fish and chips, cafe. There are many other places easily accessible from the site, we walked the coastal paths and drove to Lizard etc, Prussia Cove is worth a visit. We have had a great time and have no hesitation in recommending Specky Wood!

Lovely peaceful site

Specky Wood
2nd visit to speckywood and the first one in the summer. This site is one of my favourite cls I've been to, due to the fact it's on the lizard which is very peaceful and relaxing. The site itself is well laid out and has large pitches especially for our motorhome. Coverack is about a 15 to 20-minute walk away with a pub, shops and a beach and is very pleasant. But I recommend you explore the lizard as a whole as well, places like loe bar,poltesco, porthoustock, etc Nic and Jeff the owners are lovely and very hard working, and welcomed us when we arrived. Nic and Jeff also helped me out with a temp solution with my onboard grey water tank so many thanks for that!!! Lovely site, great location, well priced and great owners. Will be back!!!

Very friendly and great location

Specky Wood
All great. Very friendly and helpful owner and a well kept site. Walk down to the seaside is beautiful, although it’s hard work coming back! It’s about a mile and the small, pretty village has a pub, cafe, harbour and usual seaside stuff. We went on a glorious coastal walk which included a sculpture park (most unexpected). All in all, excellent.
