Cardinney Caravan and Camping Park is a popular adults only (18+) campsite between Penzance and Land's End. It is set right in the heart of the Penwith Heritage Coast region in the southern tip of Cornwall. This quiet park welcomes guests with touring caravans, tents, campervans and motorhomes onto the site.
We pride ourselves on running a quiet and relaxing site with great private and spacious pitches for you to enjoy your getaway.
There are a large number of grass pitches with electrical hookup points and water taps. The pitches are sheltered by hedgerows and woodlands giving guests a degree of privacy during their stay.
Facilities offered at the site include NEW luxury toilet/shower block, a laundrette, a washing up area, and chemical and grey waste disposal point. Gas canister exchanges are also offered at the park. Wi-Fi internet is available. The on-site shop stocks the essentials for your stay.
There are plenty of things to do in Cornwall and you're bound to be inspired to explore in all directions by the incredible views from the campsite.
Nearby to the park is Carn Euny, an ancient Iron Age settlement that is popular with history loving tourists. The central location of the park on the Land’s End peninsula means all of the nearby beaches are within easy reach. There are some great villages to discover by the coast, too, and you must visit Sennen, Mousehole, and St Levan, all of which offer you access to exceptional beaches as well as offering a range of excellent amenities.
These villages are all found on the South West Coastal Path, which itself offers miles of great walking and cycling trails, with views across the Atlantic, English Channel, and the Cornwall countryside.
You must visit Land’s End when staying at Cardinney Caravan and Camping Park; it's a short five-mile drive away and the close proximity of the location means guests can easily view the incredible sunset over the Atlantic then be back at the site within a matter of minutes.
A short drive five miles east takes you to Penzance, where you’ll find great shops as well as restaurants and pubs, with parks, leisure facilities, and more. If you're there at the end of May, look out for Pirates on the Prom and other enjoyable events.
If you enjoy playing golf on holiday in Cornwall, try the excellent Cape Cornwall Golf Course near St Just, where you can play a round while enjoying spectacular sea views.
Many of the local waterways are ideal for fishing, with sea fishing trips, coastal cruises and seal-spotting boat trips offered by Mermaid Pleasure Trips in Penzance (07901 731 201). Their shop sells all the tackle you need for all forms of sea angling.

Beware of any confrontation with owners.
On our 3rd of 4 booked trips the owner confronted my wife in a very confrontational way.
He was livid due to the children in our group and and other opposite site playing ball together. He pushed the point that it was not allowed and you must go to the field. Yet the T&Cs on their own website stipulate you CAN play ball if not disturbing others.
Due to this I called up saying that we felt unwelcome on the site and didn’t want to attend our forth booking in 3 weeks. Will, the son then went on to say we would not be welcome back anyway and that we have to leave now. He proceeded with threats to call the police. I said we would leave now if refunded for both trips, but he refused a refund. I said they cannot refuse to honour a booking and refuse a refund. So refund us or we will stay. This went back and forth for some time.
FYI - I recorded this conversation for my legal protection.
Luckily with my years of experience in dealing with irrational people and those with special needs; I was able to remain calm and speak to them in a way to buy us 2 days until we were ready to leave. I know we won’t get a refund for our next trip by writing this, but £250 well spent!
I would say you could stay and hope to avoid any confrontations with the inhuman people running it. As it is a nice site (hence 4 bookings in 12 months!) but I would say do so at your own risk. As you may be abiding the rules yet still get kicked off!
Should you like playing with fire and want to experience the roller coaster; I suggest recording every interaction with the owners for your safety/ legal protection/ amusement. You never know when it might kick off!
