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.

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Stayed here recently ...............

to meet up with family who we hadnt seen for 6 months! Wardens are very friendly and helpful. Site grounds were immaculate (Sanitary units closed). We live locally so often visit the Beacon and coastal path for walks but enjoyed an enjoyable walk to the lovely village of St Agnes for a drink and evening meal. We will definitely stay again when we need a relaxing few days and enjoyable walks!! Could become a favourite 5 miles from home!!

Good as ever!

We have been visiting this site for over 30 years and it is as good as ever. Virtually unchanged and the same can be said for the views, walks and coast. On this occasion relief wardens were keeping the site in perfect order and initially with a friendly welcome and subsequent smiles. It may not have a toilet block but don't let that put you of visiting.

Views and walks

This is a lovely site in a great location. The pitches all seem pretty level and most have a glimpse if not a full view of the sea and coast. The joy of this site is the access to the coast path and you can walk in both directions from Wheal Coates. Also a short walk up to the Beacon and down across the moor. Chapel Porth is good for the beach and icecream. Also very good parking that I think is free to National Trust members. A drive over waste water point for motorhomes is a real bonus on a site without facilities. The winds were very high during our stay but if you can stand to be without a full view of the sea, there are tucked away areas that offer some shelter. Very welcoming wardens and the fish and chip van served really good and freshly cooked food. Nice ice cream from the wardens shop too.

Fresh Air

Fresh air and lots of it due to strong winds but a lovely spot to stay and enjoy the coast. The site was quiet but the farm next door had some more than usual noisy bovine occupants and some building work being done. Some pitch pegs are not so easy to work out and the pitching can feel quite crowded when things are busy. Beware the strength of the coastal winds that can take awnings down easily as witnessed during this stay, we've lost ours previously. The cafe at beautiful Chapel Porth is worth the walk, spot the Giant Bolster's footprint on the way. 😊

Quiet site

You have to be lucky to find a pitch that has the views in the photos, as the majority cannot see the sea, however it was very clean, well maintained with helpful wardens. Walks along the cliffs or up the beacon provide amazing views and St Anges and cove make a good day out. Super friendly ice cream parlour almost outside the gates too.
