We say...

Enjoy a relaxing break at this popular campsite, located on Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula.

That means some of Cornwall’s finest scenery is close by, including the stunning shores at Kynance Cove and Kennack Sands.

Silver Sands Holiday Park itself offers a good range of facilities, from play areas for children, a small shop for essentials and an information hut, to Wi-Fi (for a charge), a public barbecue point, laundry amenities and a washing-up area.

You can choose to stay in your own tourer or tent, or in one of the site’s comfortable self-catering lodges or caravans.

Touring pitches have either 10A or 13A electric hook-up and a water connection point, while well-positioned trees and shrubs allow for that bit of extra privacy.

You say...

“The owners are friendly and very helpful, the showers are free and always hot and the dishwashing area is always clean and tidy. It’s a peaceful and beautiful site.”

“We’ve visited this site for the past seven years. It’s beautifully kept and always clean, and is a quiet place with lovely owners who work so hard but always have time to chat. I could spend a month here and still think it’s not long enough. I have a nine-year-old daughter who adores the excellent play equipment here.”
