AA 4 pennant GOLD star camping and touring park overlooking the bay at Kennack Sands, a ten minute walk away.

Chy Carne is a spacious, well-kept, clean and safe coastal holiday park with excellent on-site facilities. We offer thirty affordable self catering static holiday caravans and level camping and touring pitches within four designated areas, many with sea views overlooking the bay at Kennack Sands, a ten minute walk away.

It is a relaxed, quiet and family-friendly site, with few rules and no curfews.

We welcome touring caravans, motor homes, tents, camper vans, trailer tents and folding campers of all sizes. Electric and non-electric grass pitches are spread over 13 acres, many with sea views. A few hard-standing pitches are also available. All standard and large grass camping and touring pitches are available both with or without electric.

We believe that camping wouldn't be the same without a real campfire, so fires are permitted providing they are contained within a fire basket, pit or chiminea.

Our guests are many, from backpackers, couples and families, to scout and brownie groups, schools, diving groups, and touring rallies. We do consider single sex groups and under 18s but booking conditions apply.

Open from 9 April to 29 October
