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.

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.

A nice few days

Early September visit to a nearly full site. Site is nicely maintained, with what facilities there are -water, waste, electricity and MH service point-clean and in good order. Most pitches are sloping and some to such an extent that the large "Quatro" levelling blocks couldn't cope. Approach lanes are narrow in places and arrivals/departures need to heed the permitted times to avoid encountering problems. Well controlled check in from a COVID point of view, with the Club going the extra mile to protect its staff. Although this does seem to be seriously limiting member services, I was surprised to be told to be extra careful on the all grass pitches, as rain was expected and COVID rules dont allow wardens to tow bogged down units out! I was also surprised that having taken its obligation to its staff so seriously the Club accepted a group booking from seven or eight men in two hired motor homes who, from conversation, were clearly from several different households. COVID risks aside, their "drunken" outdoor argument, which followed their return from the pub, ran on until 0100 or there abouts, did little for the peace and tranquillity of the site! The site is excellently located for access to the Coat Path and Chapel Porth beach. With a nice tea room (outdoor service) nearby. The Driftwood Spars Inn, situated by the beach in Trevaunance Cove, served great food in a very safe environment.

One of the best!

This is definitely in our top three sites. Probably because the location is so wonderful with only a quick walk to the beach, albeit all uphill on the way back. There are no facilities which we obviously knew before we booked but I think it’s the better for it. It’s no bother to use your onboard facilities, it makes you more mindful of water usage😁. It is just a field really but the glorious weather and wonderful location made our whole break just perfect. We did get a list of pitches that were available but that’s because it had been raining the previous week and some were very wet. We were told we could pick any if we wanted and we did, our chocks did sink in a bit but all was fine. Finally, although our site information told us that dogs weren’t allowed on Chapel Porth beach and so did the signs in the car park of the beach itself, there were lots and lots of dogs on the beach. The National Trust staff members that were in the car park office didn’t seem to mind. If I’d known, we could have taken ours but chose not to bring him on the break for that reason.

Disappointing, despite the great location

Great location, peaceful and brilliant views from most of the site. However, given the Covid-19 situation, the site felt overcrowded, especially compared to other CMC and commercial sites. The list of available pitches we were given to choose from on arrival seemed incomplete. Other, flatter, pitches were definitely available. Another motorhome which arrived after us insisted on using one of these empty level pitches and was not asked to move. It is far easier to level a caravan than a motorhome! It's bad enough having to pay the same for a smaller pitch, without being offered the worst pitches too. I was also extremely disappointed to see that some CMC members are willing to visit a less expensive CMC site with no facilities and then to walk to the 5* commercial site next door to use their showers. Shame on you. Wardens should tell people this is not allowed.
