Henry's has a certain charm and has a lot going for it, but there are also a few aspects that need a little attention.

The good points are wonderfully friendly staff and owner, relaxed and laid back and flexible on arrival and departure times. Location wise it's right in the heart of the village with a couple of pubs, a shop, butchers and bus stop all less than five minutes walk.

The site is quirky and different, has sea views and generally feels very Cornish and very reasonably priced.

The down side is that it is a bit rough round the edges and whilst the toilets were perfectly clean with very hot showers, other parts such as the wash up area I would not have wanted to use.

I would however, happily stay again and will hopefully return one day.

I stayed here with my partner Mon-Thursday, I wish it was longer.

Our pitch was beautiful, sea view, cornish walls, honeysuckle round top.

We even had room for a cooking area.

The site is laid back, calm and lovely, the chickens and ducks wandering round add to the lovely atmosphere.

Wildlife is at a high too, bats, foxes and hedgehogs.

The unisex loos and showers didn't please my partner, he likes things sterile and brand new.

I loved it all tho, the quirky, happy and jolly time was second to none.

We heard the sea in our tent all night. No other noise.

Wish we had stayed much longer.

Really relaxed campsite in a stunning area. Would recommend Cadgwith and Kynance coves. Very quiet and peaceful and situated within the Lizard village and 5-10mins walk to Lizard point. We saw seals in the sea and visited the lighthouse here for a really interesting tour.

The campsite was really expensive especially in view of the mediocre facilities. We had really bad weather and the flat pitch was the most waterlogged I have ever experienced; am so very glad we had an excellent groundsheet. Literally felt like we were on a waterbed as we walked around our tent. Otherwise the campsite was quirky and relaxed with a good shop and breakfast items on sale. Sadly there was wifi at the reception so there were often groups of people huddled around the area on their phones or laptops, ruined the relaxed, chilled out vibe a tad.

The nearest pub basically chucked us out as they only wanted people who were eating. They reserve almost all the tables for people who come in to eat, even though they had not booked. The first cafe that you come to as you enter the village was fab with great service and good priced meals and the fish and chip shop was great with beautiful fish. The only shop in the village was extortionate, I expected it to be expensive but it was ridiculous, knowing full well that the nearest supermarket was 8 miles away.

The worst feature for me was the lack of space for kids. There was no room left on our pitch once the tent (5m diameter) and car were there and my two boys keen to kick the ball around, found a field with a goal. Great we thought, but the ball kept on going into the animals that roamed the field, so basically not even a small area where the kids could kick the ball or play catch. Have never experienced that in my many years of camping. Would not recommend this site to people with children.

We( 2 adults)stayed for 2 nights. Follow the directions on their website otherwise you will get lost! Made very welcome and shown our pitch, which was in a dip surrounded by a stone wall and lots of flowers, very very nice pitch. Excellent location with direct access to the coastal path. Facilities where a bit basic but sufficient. We walked to Cadgwith Bay, a small fishing village, the coastal path was amazing and we really enjoyed this part of the coast line with its secluded bays, we saw seals and giant jelly fish. The Lizard really is an amazing part of Cornwall and Henrys is well placed to enjoy it. We will definitely be staying at Henrys again. 25 per night with hookup which we thought was a bit steep but in reflection now worth every penny.

Used this site for a couple of nights for the convenience of being close to Lizard point.

The site is one with a laid back vibe, but it's just starting to look a bit tired and unkempt around the reception / facilities. The pitches are mature and nicely planted, but vary a lot in size. We ended up a pitch so small we couldn't get our rain canopy up on the side of the van. Some of the other pitches however, seemed quite large. The views from the pitch were nice down over the fields towards to the coast.

Facilities were ok, but the showers were 20p for 2 minutes (not sure how exact they were as it seemed a very quick 2 mins!). It was also a bit of a surprise to have to pay given the cost of the site.

There is a track that runs directly from the site down to the coast path, so walking is very good.

Would I stay here again, no, the main reason being the cost. I paid it once for the convenience as I had to be close to the point, but if it weren't for that, it's just too expensive to visit again.

This is a great little site in a superb location. From our pitch we had wonderful views out to sea and along the coast toward Kynance and a spectacular sunset. The coast path is a few minutes' walk away and the walks in both direction along the coast are fantastic; the added bonus being that the central peninsula location means that you can take a short-cut back across country if you go too far along the coast, get tired, or have a few too many pints with lunch. The village is a couple of minutes' walk and there are two pubs serving food. We tried the Witches Ball for a drink only and it was very good and also dog-friendly. The pitches are well-kept, quite level and mostly bordered with walls and hedges. Toilets and showers are adequate but a bit basic which probably makes the price a bit high but this is more than made up for by the location.
