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.

Return visit

We first visited this site in the 1980's and it's still a great location. Great views and a warm welcome, just a shame the access road can be a bit of a challenge! This time our visit was somewhat spoilt by the British summertime weather, it was WET but we still enjoyed ourselves. One bit of advice, if you intend to use an awning don't forget your tie down straps as it can be very windy, that's the price you pay for the views. We tend to be self sufficient so can't really comment on local hostelries but the shops in St Agnes village can provide all the essentials and there is a camping supplies centre close by which carries a comprehensive range of items.

3 Night Stay March 2019

Had a 3 night stay in our caravan end of March 2019. Wardens both very helpful. Very peaceful site. Lovely views from just about every pitch. St Agnes village is nice. We had dinner at the Railway Inn; lovely real ale, food was basic but nice, good atmosphere. Would definitely return to this site.

Great Site with a Warm Welcome

We chose this site for trial run of our new campervan. Lovely site, great location, very peaceful, fantastic views and good walking nearby. As new members, and new campervaners, we were made very welcome by the team on site and other visitors. Site was super neat and tidy. We are already planning our return trip!

Room With A View!!

We have visited this site on a number of occasions over the years and always had a different experience depending on the weather. This time, the views out to sea and towards St. Ives were fabulous as everywhere has been enjoying this fantastic summer. But back to the site itself - final stretch along to Beacon Drive is narrow and at peak periods can be busy. Pitches are all grass - some more even than others - levelling blocks always useful. Lovely, friendly wardens. Thank you. Easy walk into St. Agnes and plenty of walking from the site especially if following the coastal path. Site can be a bit exposed when the wind blows - make sure your awning is well pegged out complete with awning straps!!
