Alan Rogers Review

A small rural site, Franchis is ideally situated for exploring the Lizard Peninsula in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Mature trees edge the site’s field which slopes slightly, where 40 pitches are arranged around the perimeters, all with 10A electricity. Natural woodland areas and a stream will keep children occupied. Continuing past the field into a wooded area are five small bungalows and seven static caravans, some privately owned and some to rent. There is also a large toilet block. 

Phil and Kate, the couple who have owned the site for the past 13 years, will be pleased to welcome you and advise you on exploring the area. The Lizard is a unique area and well worth exploring with unspoilt coves and the Helford river. Goonhilly Earth station is just up the road and you pass by the extensive Culdrose Naval base on your way to the site. Helston is known for its famous ‘floral dance’, the origin of which is not certain, but for one day in May each year the inhabitants dress up and dance through the streets to celebrate.


Two traditional small toilet blocks with showers. Two washing machines and two dryers. Freezer for ice blocks. Small library. Dog exercise field (high season max. 1 dog). Two bungalows to rent. WiFi (charged).
