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.

Campervan Visit May 2018

Friendly wardens who were very welcoming and helpful with advice about choosing an appropriate pitch which gave us a glorious view. Some pitches could be difficult for levelling a motorhome. Handwash laundry facility a bonus. Easy access to walking both to Coast Path and the Beacon. We can recommend the high quality local butcher who visited on a Monday evening and noted the Fish & Chip van visited twice a week. Not to be missed is the Driftwood Spars Brewery at Trevaunce Cove, although it's a steep walk back up the road with your bottles!

Favourite location.

Just returned from this site. We never get tired of it, if you get the weather there is no where on earth I'd rather be. The walk to Portreath and Perranporth are on your door step. This is Cornish mining district, and if you want to explore this there are lots of sites to visit. Since Poldark (which was filmed at Botallack mine) the interest has grown, fascinating think how industrial this area was then. Value for money, peace and quiet, fantastic views, abundance of wildlife, immaculately kept, friendly wardens, oh and the chip van comes Monday and Saturday. What more can you ask for.

Lovely Site

Stayed in June on this site. The site is well maintained and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The ground is a little uneven in places and you may need blocks. Some pitches have a great view of the sea and coastline. The coastal paths are a short walk away with exceptional scenery. The only improvement to the site would be toilets and showers. Would stay here again if in the area.

Cornish Cream!

What a lovely site with fabulous access to coastal path walks and walks on Saint Agnes beacon. Chaple Porth Beach is a 20min walk or 3 min drive, but make sure you check out the tides for this beach, it's small, perfectly formed at high water and stunningly beautiful golden sand and low water. The WIFI on site it's a bit of a letdown, a good signal can only be obtained when sat on the bench or in the laundry room area. NB: looks are not everything! because of the very strong winds that come off the cliffs onto the site from Porthtowan direction it's wise to have a sheltered pitch further back on the site, apart from that it's another great site for the club.
