Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Kenneggy Cove is an immaculately maintained park, offering 50 pitches in a lawned garden setting with panoramic sea views.
A 12 minute walk from the site down a natural footpath brings you to the South West Coastpath (with stunning walks in either direction) and the golden sands of Kenneggy beach beyond. Given the lack of vehicle access to this beach, it is never crowded and offers safe, sheltered bathing - a hidden gem!
Kenneggy Cove is our home and offers a welcoming and safe environment, with facilities that are civilised but not commercialised, all shared with like-minded people. We believe that sharing your space with people who want the same from their holiday as you do is key to its enjoyment and we are pro-active in ensuring this. We are a quiet site and actively operate a policy of 'No Noise after 10.00pm' and make sure people are aware of this before booking.
Recipients of the Tourist Board's Rose Award for Excellence, we are justly proud of our grounds and facilities. The 9 holiday homes are in a separate garden and all have sea views over Mount's Bay to the Lizard. The toilet block is maintained to exceptionally high standards and offers spacious shower cubicles and showers benefiting from constant free hot water under good pressure. An indoor washing up area, wet-suit washing area and fully equipped laundry with free ironing facilities are also provided, together with a childrens' play area and ball game lawn.
The new visitor reception houses a small cafe where we provide delicious homemade food to eat in (or outside on the sunny patio)or to take away. There is also a small shop providing the essentials and newspapers to order, a full range of tourist information and a free ice-pack freezing facility.
Conservation is a priority at Kenneggy (meaning 'reed' in Cornish). The park is a haven for wildlife and plays host to many species of bird and butterfly. The neighbouring fields are home to badgers and foxes and bats have made their home in the barn. On a still, warm evening, the sound of the crickets and a star-filled sky reflecting in the sea create a truly magical ambience.
Visitors from other countries are most welcome. We have many guests from Holland and Germany who pay us repeat visits and recommend us to their friends. We speak fluent French, German and Italian.
Kenneggy Cove is ideally placed for visiting the hauntingly beautiful far west of Cornwall. We are 30 minutes from Lizard Point (the southernmost tip of mainland Britain), 35 minutes from Land's End and 20 minutes from the famous, quaint town of St Ives. St Michael's Mount is 5 mins by car or a 1.5 hour walk on the coastpath. A 15 minute stroll along the coastpath brings you to Prussia Cove, the famous smugglers' haunt.
Kenneggy will appeal to those who seek the tranquility of undeveloped coast and countryside and a return to the traditional holidays of buckets and spades, beach picnics, rockpooling and fun in the sea. A very warm welcome awaits you!
