Perfect weather for camping in Cornwall

We have been on holiday in Cornwall and were lucky to have hot, sunny weather to appreciate this beautiful part of England. We stayed at the friendly and rather eccentric Henry's campsite right down at the end of the Lizard Peninsula.

The site has a tropical feel with palms and Gunnera plants and chickens so free range they will move into your tent if you let them. From here we could walk along the coastal path to Kynance Cove, a spectacular setting of turquoise sea, pristine sand and towering granite cliffs.

In the evenings we walked to the most southerly point of England at Lizard Point lighthouse. Here the cliff path requires a good head for heights but its worth it for the sense of unspoilt wildness and unusual plants not seen elsewhere on this island.
