February 2015 News
Ron has finally finished all the weeding and cutting back. It's only taken 2 months!
Henry’s is a small, family-run, rural site, with a spectacular sea-view.
We have showers, toilets, hot and drinking water and can freeze ice blocks for you in our shop. The shop sells lots of camping goodies incase you have forgotten anything (from pegs to tents!). We have an on-site cafe called The Galleon. This year we are mainly going to be doing 'Specials' Nights, anything from Curries to fresh, local Fish, to Chilli and Paella Nights. And don't forget Ron's mums little shed - a second hand cavern full of delights!
It is no longer a working farm but we have chickens, guinea pigs, ducks, goats, alpacas and pigs! We welcome families so during holiday periods it will be essential to book.
Dogs are allowed at Easter and then at any other time out of the school holidays. We request that you keep your dog on a leash and do not let it foul on the campsite at all (even if you intend to scoop it), as this encourages others to do so. The site is right next to a suitable footpath for dog exercising. We charge £1 per day per dog.
The site has a tropical feel to it and is ideally situated at the top of Caerthilllian Valley, with the village on the upper side of the farm buildings just a few minutes walk away. There you will find the Post Office, chip shop, pubs, grocer, butcher, gift shops and cafes.
Lovely beaches nearby include, Kynance Cove (30 minute walk – 5 minute drive), Housel Cove (20 minute walk), Kennack Sands and Poldhu Cove (10 minute drives). The coastal walking is fantastic too with The Most Southerly Point and Church Cove and several circular walks right from the campsite.
Within a 20-minute drive, you can also play golf, horse-ride, cycle and dive.
The Lizard is a truly special place and is famous for amongst others things, its geology, botany and bird-life. We try to reflect this uniqueness and hope that you’ll find us a bit ‘different from the rest’.
Please call us to make a booking or email us – we look forward to hearing from you.
little big gig 2014 IS taking place. Dates 19th-22nd September ! Workshops!

For the record: at Henrys our bluebells came out on 14th April and we heard the cuckoo on the 19th, it flies over from Africa and lands south of the Lizard, and eventually settles at Kynance/Gew Graze during Spring - early summer.

OLD 2012 PROJECTS - SOON TO BE UPDATED ! ↓
We thought, as you’re all thinking of past summers and looking forward to your next holiday or break, that you might be thinking of what’s going on at ”Henrys”.
So, for all our friends and regular customers, we are going to let you into our eventful winter and spring life, and try to make it simple with a quick spiel:
The top camping field is having two new parking spaces, at the top.
I’m in the process since Christmas, of revamping our website. Its been very successful over the years, but a change is needed.
This will happen gradually over the next few weeks - there is a deadline and it’s soon!!
Yes- our daughter and friends want a go-kart - I need wheels!
Because our community fire pit is getting very popular, we need more seats and to be more cosy. Watch this space for all the action. By the time you see these photos, project 5 will be in its final stages.
During January’s projects
We make time for ourselves, taking advantage of lonely cliff walks.

Acoustic weekend in September – we are having a weekend of acoustic music consisting of afternoon stage entertainment, workshops and jamming evenings at the firepit.
