Green credentials, fantastic facilities and a wonderful location on the Lizard Peninsula make Silver Sands an understandable winner.
It’s just a 1km walk through the Lizard Nature Reserve to the beaches of Kennack Sands, and the children can play pirates in Kynance Cove and the other secret coves that fringe Cornwall’s most southerly stretch of coastline.
On the nine-acre site you’ll find fantastic play areas for them, too, and families can get together around the picnic tables in the barbecue area or gather at a campfire (off the ground) on your pitch.
The site has a garden setting, with pitches arranged between trees and shrubs, creating a really friendly, unregimented feel. Amenities include a small shop, pristine washblock and laundry with ironing facilities.
The nearest pub to the site is at Kennack Sands, while other local hostelries – Trengilly Wartha Inn, and the dog-friendly Cadgwith Cove Inn and The Witchball – also serve good food and drink. Fun days out can be had at nearby Goonhilly Earth Station, Camel Farm at St Martin and Lizard RNLI Station.
