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.

A breath of fresh air. Lovely to come across a campsite with a difference and such a relaxed feel.

Hadn't booked and was found an appropriate place to pitch up and shown around the site on arrival. I pitched in a small walled compound that was beautifully private and sheltered.

The facilities are not ultra modern but very clean (staff seemed to be constantly cleaning the place up). Showers - plenty of hot water (10p per minute). Recycling is comprehensive. Love how facilities are almost hidden into the landscape.

There are a few communal benches and there seems to be a natural encouragement to use them, which was good given the private pitch.

The animals were an added extra interest.

The rules are inconspicuous eg: 'don't chase the chickens as their legs are shorter than yours' which is refreshing.

The location is good being just 5 minutes stroll to the village and its pubs and cafes etc. Might want to avoid the Top House as the landlord is a bit miserable.

If you like sterilised campsites with a set sized pitch and rules galore this isn't for you - you'll moan about the grass and the toilets will be too old. But if you want to chill out in great surroundings then roll up!

Amazing, love this site. The pitches are more than adequate, ours was overlooking the sea about half way down and was surrounded by 3 living walls with amazing flowers and shrubs. Perfectly adequate loos and showers and washing up area.

Loved the whole quirkiness of the surrounds, with the amazing paintings, murals, sculptures and carvings.

The shop was well stocked. You can hire braziers, (some made from recycled washing machine drums), and logs, I needed some for my log burning cooker.

Chickens, chicks and ducks roam freely, a chicken we called Noodle came every night, he liked noodles!

All the staff were very helpful.

Ron never throws anything away, ever!

There are Alpacas, horses and pigs in the adjacent fields.

Although the site is in the middle of the Lizard, it has a farm feeling, and because of its position we were minutes from everything.

The Witches Ball pub is very good, we had a lovely carvery there Sunday.

Easy access to walks along the cliffs.

We have been camping for 9 years, and usually camp 3 or 4 times a year, so far, (and we're not looking much further!)this is the best site we have been to. Will return!

Don't die before you've been to Henry's!

Wow, what a lovely quirky site, right in the heart of Lizard village with its pubs, shops and cafes; and only a 15 minute walk out to the coast and Lizard Point. Pitches are all individual and level and some quite private. There are plenty of water points and some electric hook ups. Toilets and showers (20p) are unisex, there is a laundry, loads of sculpture and art, exotic plants and a field with pigs, alpacas, goats, chickens and ducks. The chickens and ducks wander all over the site as well and there's also some guinea pigs in cages. Fresh coffee and cider are available on site and in season there is a café / take-away. Tucked away in a corner is a covered fire pit with terraced seating, apparently a great place for a bit of musical instrument playing and singing. Portable fire pits are also available to hire.

If you go down to Lizard point there is a lovely café that serves a mean cream tea and meringues the size of dinner plates.

The nearest dog friendly beach (20 mins walk) is no longer accessible due to coastal erosion.

Though we were there in low season (very quiet) we would love to return in the summer as we imagine that the site has quite a festival feel to it. Will definitely go back, such a chilled relaxing site.
