General

  • Small, cosy and family-run park a mile from Marazion
  • A short walk from St Michael's Mount
  • Free pool and spotless amenities

Sites near the coast are rather special. Particularly when they’re Cornish, less than a mile from a beauteous bay, and with a heated indoor pool in which guests can wallow wrinkedly all the winter day if the mood so takes them – for free…

Drive down a country lane surrounded by fields to reach small, family-run and exceedingly esteemed Wheal Rodney Holiday Park, a mile from Marazion and a short saunter to St Michael's Mount. It’s easy to drive to the other attractions of west Cornwall from here (the Lizard Peninsula, Land’s End and Penzance are all close by), but the kids won’t have time to say they’re bored before you’re at arty St Ives and the north coast, Helston and Flambards, or the Isles of Scilly from Penzance or Land's End.

The majority of Wheal Rodney’s guests are families, but their welcome extends to all, dogs included, who’ll probably wag their tails at the countryside walks straight from the site and the list of dog-friendly Cornish beaches available in reception.

The spotless facilities building has the site reception, shower blocks with free hot water, launderette and the aforementioned free swimming pool, open from 9am daily. Ice pack freezing and phone and gadget charging are also gratis for guests.

Other facilities on site include an Elsan point, recycling and a shop for essentials: if your holiday equals not having to cook, the Fire Engine Inn with a temptingly tasty menu and beer garden is five minutes’ stroll from Wheal Rodney. As with the site, dogs and children are whealy welcome too.

Excellent site , really friendly staff and clean facilities, nice pool 24/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Fabulous site to stay on , the staff are all extremely friendly and helpful and the site itself is clean and tidy . The indoor pool was brilliant, like swimming in a warm bath ,and hardly ever busy so you could swim however you want to . The ladies shower block was all up to date and kept very clean with waterfall type showers ,there is only 2 but I rarely had to wait ,can't really comment on the men's but I would assume it's the same standard.
    There is laundry and wash room they provide free washing up facilities which came in handy ,they charge £3 for a machine wash and £1 for 20 mins in the tumble dryer (only takes the old £1coins)
    There is also a little shop on site that sells all the essentials and other bits which is reasonably priced.
    The pitches were all pretty level and big with plenty of room for your tent and car if you wanted although there was plenty of parking spaces too.
    Marazion itself is only a 15 min walk at most away down a little country road and well worth the walk ,especially the Fire Engine Inn at the end of the road the food and the view is amazing!

    Disliked: 

    Having to come home and the noisy rooks but if you camp in the countryside you have to expect country noises.

    It took us 5 hours travel to get there but it was certainly worth it! The site was very clean and the staff friendly, chatty and genuinely interested in the day's activities. On one of the days we visited Land's end and walked for a lot of miles. I have Reumatoid Arthritis and was suffering by the time we got back, the staff on duty that day offered to keep the pool open for me so I could relax my joints/muscles, how personal is that, I was so grateful! The shop had all the basics that were needed, and every day we were asked if they could do anything for us, it felt like a 5* hotel. There was a dish washing area (we were camping) and everything was supplied, washing up bowl, washing liquid, draining area and tea towels! The toilets/shower area were immaculate. I can honestly say that there was nothing below standard there and I look forward to booking again and enjoying my time there, paradise in this country!

Directions


Coming from the A30
Go through the village of Crowlas, pass The Star Inn (on your right) and then take a left at the crossroads (signposted Rospeath). Travel for 1.5 miles along the winding country lane without turning off. Pass under the bypass bridge and then bear a sharp left around the corner. Start coming up the hill to Marazion. We are just up the road on the right-hand side. Please do take this route if towing a caravan or in a large motorhome.

Coming from the Penzance side of Marazion
With St. Michael’s Mount and the sea on your right, travel up through the main street until you reach The Fire Engine Inn. Turn left up Shop Hill and continue straight out into the countryside without turning off (approximately 500 yards). We are on the left. Not suitable for those towing due to small streets in Marazion.

Coming from Helston road to Marazion
Take the first exit off the roundabout to Marazion. Pass The Mount Haven hotel on the left, then indicate right to take the tight turn up Shop Hill (directly opposite The Fire Engine Inn). Continue on this road for about 500 yards, straight out into the countryside without turning off. We are on the left.

If you are towing from Helston, turn right at the top Marazion roundabout, signposted 'Shop', into the estate. Follow this road around. Then, bear left and turn right at the telephone box. Follow this lane for approximately 500 yards and you will see us on the left-hand side of the road.

Please note: satnavs are brilliant things but don’t always bring you directly to us. They can often try and send you to Wheal Rodney Nurseries which is on the other side of the bypass! This involves farm yards etc so please do use satnavs to bring you to the general area, but note that we are reached by a normal tarmac road and you should not leave the road.

Local attractions

There are so many top-notch beaches around west Cornwall (25 within easy reach of Wheal Rodney) that it can be hard to pick where to stretch out on the sand/rookpool/surf at first… Marazion is a bonzer beach startoff point from Wheal Rodney, as not only it is a piffling mile away, but it has two beaches: the main Town Beach and a much quieter and hidden one at Steps Beach (the latter is dog-friendly all year round).

Overlooking Town Beach is the medieval castle on St Michael’s Mount, the rocky island halfway along Mount’s Bay and now managed by the National Trust. Both are within strolling distance of Wheal Rodney: sail out to the island from Mount’s Bay for a harbour tour and a gawp at the subtropical gardens, viewable when peering down from the castle battlements.

Fishing villages, clandestine coves and golden sands are speckled along the Cornish coast from Wheal Rodney: take a day at each if you can (the boss will understand) for fishing in Mullion and Porthleven, surfing at Sennen Cove and Praa Sands, diving and shipwreck hunting at Falmouth’s Porthkerris Beach, or just having a gape at the celebrated scenery of the Lizard’s Kynance and Kennack Sands.

When sand is dusted from toes, Marazion town centre is a gem for art galleries, antiques and jewellery: Penlee House at Penzance three miles away and Tate St Ives seven miles north are also a big draw for artistes. Both towns have several other art galleries, more beaches (of course) and the opportunity to sing very loud and tuneless sea shanties with pirates at Penzance.

The St Ives Bay Line from Penzance to St Ives is one of the most scenic you’ll see anywhere in the country; for added viewsomeness, walk to Penzance from Marazion along the South West Coast Path, stopping very frequently to snap the scenery at Mount’s Bay, Mousehole and the Lizard.

Thirteen miles from Wheal Rodney towards the southwest, have your photo taken at the famous signpost at Land’s End, where also cordially recommended is partaking of a Cornish cream tea at the Land’s End restaurant.

And while you’re in the area, stick around into the evening for a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, 11 miles from Wheal Rodney in the direction of Land’s End. Its season runs from May to September, but theatre fiends can take a guided tour any time of year, something that also comes cordially recommended…
