General

  • Family site five minutes’ drive from stunning Mousehole harbour
  • Ramblers’ paradise: South West Coast Path and St Ives Bay Line nearby
  • A 25-minute drive from Land's End, 20 minutes from top surfing spots

Cornish beaches, busy towns and a scenic fishing village with a great story… You get it all at Mousehole Camping, a family site in the village of Paul, five minutes’ drive from Mousehole and 15 minutes from Penzance.

Mousehole Camping is a prime spot to base yourself for some exploration of Cornwall: in nearby Penzance, you can pick up the South West Coast Path and the St Ives Bay Line, bringing the dog along so the two of you can call into some of the dog-friendly pubs along the route.

Make your way into Mousehole and down to the harbour to laze on the beach or do as the locals do and fish… then wander the cobbled streets, nose around galleries and local shops, and eat at the fishy-focused restaurants.

Back on site, Mousehole Camping is in the grounds of a local football club, with a clubhouse bar open in busy times. A pool table and table football are also available for guests' use.

Barbecues are allowed: pick up supplies from the supermarkets in Penzance or fresh fish from the port in Newlyn, five minutes away. If you’d prefer a break from cooking, stroll to the village pub for some food and drinks, or try one of the restaurants within 15 minutes of the site.

Please note

Single-sex bookings of 6 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Please note that the clubhouse is only open depending on campsite occupancy. Opening times are determined at the discretion of the campsite manager.

    Nice clean friendly site. Facilities are ok. Nice views and good for star gazing of a night if you're into that.

    Disliked: 

    There was nothing on site for the kids to do although there was a park off site about a 10 minute walk away with stunning views. The road leading up to the site needs attention as its full of pot holes. The price is a bit steep at £24 a night with no electric as it is just a field.

    Cornwall is beautiful. Mousehole is quaint & quiet but easy to get around from. Site staff were lovely. Camp was clean & tidy but very basic.

    Disliked: 

    Facilities at camp. Quite far from camp ground & advertised as basic & basic they are. Showers separated by shower curtain only & communal changing room. Located in the football ground changing rooms, no privacy. Water pipe same distance away too. More electric pitches needed too.

    Quite friendly people

    Disliked: 

    A long walk to the loos and washing up facilities, which were not available at all times and were some what dirty. Pitches were very close together so not much privacy and a lot of noise, no views and pretty disappointed.

Local attractions

Fans of BBC costume drama Poldark will find plenty to keep them occupied around here, with many names and places to recognise: Godolphin House, the mines at Botallack and Levant, and Porthcurno beach (Nampara Cove) are all within half an hour of Mousehole Camping and all worth a visit.

Of course, if your passions lie less in TV drama and more in the arts, you won’t be let down – catching a show at the Minack Theatre, an open-air theatre carved into the cliffs above Porthcurno, is an absolute must.

You can’t very well make a trip to this part of Cornwall and not visit the most westerly point of mainland England… Land’s End is a 25-minute drive from Mousehole Camping. Be sure to get a photo with the famed sign, and stop for a Cornish cream tea before you leave.

Anyone drawn to the ocean will have oodles to do too: the top-notch surfing beach at Sennen is 20 minutes away, boat trips out to the Scilly Isles leave Penzance regularly, and the stunning St Michael’s Mount is a short walk along a causeway or an even shorter boat journey from the coast.

Must see

  • St Michael's Mount (3.6 miles)
  • Land's End (7.5 miles)
  • Tate St Ives (9.1 miles)
