Why stay here ...

Situated at the foot of the Beacon, the peaceful St Agnes Beacon Club Site offers unforgettable panoramic views of the Cornish coastline. This gently sloping caravan park, arranged on several levels, is partly sheltered by gorse-topped banking.

St Agnes Beacon Club Site offers a great getaway, not to mention a chance to experience the charms of real Cornwall - crisp clear air, breathtaking views along the coastline to St Ives, the ever-changing sea below you and rich flora and fauna to take in as you wander the coastal footpath. The nearby town of St Agnes is within walking distance, where you can sample the fresh catch of the day or take in a spot of shopping. The site also puts you within easy reach of some excellent local beaches and surfing spots - Chapel Porth is only five minutes away by car, and just a little further on you'll reach popular Perranporth and Newquay. Blue Hills Tin at Trevellas Valley offers guided tours and gives a great insight into the history of the Cornish tin mine industry. Lands' End, the most westerly point of mainland Cornwall and England, is well worth a day visit.

We didn't see the sea.......

Unfortunately we hit a very wet week for our stay here and only really saw the view from the website photos! On the plus side the wardens must be the one of the most friendly teams on the network - still smiling through torrential rain and the laundry room with tumble drier was an unexpected bonus. Sadly we will probably not return due to the rather miserable dog 'scuttle' on site. It really cannot be called a dog walk. Sites which have really spacious dog exercise areas are a real plus when the weather is foul.There is, of course, plenty of space nearby but letting a dog off on the precipitate coast path is always risky.

Just Perfect!

St Agnes Beacon is just perfect for us. This has been our second visit and won't be our last. The location couldn't be better. Fantastic views over the sea. Fabulous walks along the cliffs down to an old tin mine and on to Chapel Porth- our favourite beach. There are further walks along the beach at low tide as well as continuing along the coastal path on the cliffs. Another lovely walk is up to the Beacon itself with more stunning views. We continued down Into St Agnes itself;a lovely little village with its own museum and excellent micro brewery as well pubs, restaurants and delightful bakery. St Ives, Truro, Falmouth and Penzance are all within easy driving distance. The site itself is beautifully maintained and has the friendliest wardens we have met. For us this feels like a big CL, and that's a good thing! Hopefully the lack of shower blocks and toilets will put some people off coming so we can get back again!😊

Glorious coastline.

We return again and again to this site. This is our fist visit in September though, and was expecting to miss out on the heather which is at its best in July and August however what a treat to see the bracken out in in all its glorious yellow, and in patches around the coast line the heather hung in there too and with the vibrant blue sea the scenery is breath taking. The walks off this site are all you need for a fantastic break from the norm. Being a coastal site the weather chops and changes, so one day you could be basking in glorious sunshine and the next in gale force winds and driving rain. When the sun shine's there is nowhere on hearth we'd rather be. Oh and if you are a Poldark fan...........well enjoy!!

Amazing

A fabulous site with the most stunning views. Wardens were superb. This site is in a great location much to see and do in the area. The site doesn’t have a toilet block, but did have a useful laundry. The site is immaculate and a credit to the wardens. Highly recommended.
