Excellent location and the pitches are very nicely done, the owners were very friendly, helpful and laid back. The fees are very expensive though, for a tent and two people it was 22 or 26 with hook-up, you can camp for half this price if you look around. If you want to have a fire then it's 3 to hire the fire pit and then you have to buy their logs at 5 a bag so again it's 8 just to have a fire for a night on top of the 26 to pitch up! so we went without a fire even though the idea was very appealing. The amenities were pretty basic but clean and certainly adequate for us. Parts of the site are like an eccentric junk yard (in a good way) with all sorts of bits and bobs strewn around.

All that said we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the site, it's got a great feel with chickens and ducks running around and little nooks and crannies. The local area is fantastic for walking and the two village pubs both do food, in our opinion the Witchball was far better than the Top House, better still if you want a lovely walk around the coast is the Cove Inn at Cadgwith.

Would probably go back, put off somewhat by the pricing but really not by anything else. You can pay less for a pristine site with immaculate facilities and lots more amenities but then again you wouldn't get what Henry's has to offer and that alone might just balance the books.

Quirky is a word, much used about this site and it is! Totally individual and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We had our own 'garden' with hook up and picnic table. Everything you could wish for on the site including basic shopping, hot drinks, cider and breakfast croissant if you want them! Near the coastal path, and even nearer the village, with basic shops, tourist shops pubs and a great chip shop 2 minutes from the site! What is not to like? Even entertainment for the dog who thought the wandering chickens were there to entertain him!

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.
