On my first go at camping, my friend wanted to take me somewhere spectacular. We had originally tried to get into a campsite in Treen but because they do not allow campers to pre book, and we didn't relish the idea of being number 6 on the waiting list, we were faced with finding an alternative at short notice. After phoning around other campsites in the area with no success, it was by chance we found the number for Teneriffe campsite near Mullion Cove. Kim was so friendly on the phone and warned us that the weather was not ideal for pitching tents, but she would be able to help us out of the mud if needs be. I was a little dubious.
By the time we got there, the sun was shining and the site was half empty with plenty of free pitches.
This site, although it is miles from anywhere, is perfect for nights under canvas.
There are distant views of the sea and a fantastic stretch of the SW Coastal footpath is a ten minute walk away.
On site, the facilities are spotlessly clean; there is no litter; no noise and the ever present smile of Kim the manager.
The morning of our departure, we couldn't find Kim( she was walking her dogs) and left what we thought was an appropriate fee for our stay, only to be surprised by a phone call from Kim on our way home telling us that we had over paid and she was going to send us a cheque for the difference!!
I would highly recommend anyone thinking of camping in the area to stay there!!
