    Quiet and near the Ferry for the Scillies.

    Disliked: 

    The clue is in the name-Pitch up-as in POP up.A large field next to a football ground with the use of the players showers etc.,A large Biffa next to the clubhouse for rubbish,no hard standing that we could see(although my booking clearly states I paid for this).We had a lot of trouble finding the place,it is actually in Paul,a small village.The Sat Nav sends you up very steep narrow bendy roads,very stressful in a camper.When we eventually found the field,luckily a fellow campervanner was able to put us in the picture,re facilities such as they were ! Spoke to a gentlemen on the mobile number given on the booking form,but we never saw him.
    Would have been tricky if the weather had been wet,we paid the same amount the previous night for hard standing ,showers etc close by (not trekking across a football pitch) a nice little shop and water,chemical disposal etc., I could go on for ever complaining about this rip off.But I'm bored now.Avoid if you can,though there isn't much to choose from in the area.

    Locatie is echt super!!! Uitzicht op zee en loopafstand naar de "mooiste vissersdorp van Engeland" , Mousehole. Je zit tussen 2 sport clubs, Mousehole Football Club en Paul Cricket Club (ook gratis naar deze wat minder bekend sport kijken). De bar van de voetbal club was in het weekend s'avonds open , maar een klein 1km verder zit je bij een heerlijke pub in het dorpje Paul, The Kings Arms.

From Penzance, head towards Newlyn. At the crossroads go straight across and up the hill. Continue to the top of the hill for approximately one mile until you reach a T-junction (signposted Mousehole and Paul). Turn left and in half a mile before Paul church, turn right. The entrance is at the end of the road, next to Paul Cricket Club.

Local attractions

Mousehole is not only an attractive village but also has a beautiful harbour for fishing, a beach, coastal walks, pubs and great restaurants.

Wander the cobbled streets to see the many art galleries and local shops. Mousehole is famous for art and fishing and there are places to learn and do both. Visit the bird sanctuary and eat at the Coastguard Inn. In the winter, the Ship Inn has local stargazey pie. In the summer the streets are full of onlookers who come to see the historical beauty of this popular village.

Penzance is a short bus ride away. Chapel Street is steeped in history dating back to the Armada where a lookout on top of the Admiral Benbow pub (still there today) rushed to the Union Hotel from where Nelson's return and success in thwarting the Spanish was announced. As well as the traditional pubs on Chapel Street there are some very nice restaurants. Try the Bakehouse for good dining, or the Mackerel Sky Café for traditional fish dishes and enormous breakfasts. The Yacht Inn towards the Jubilee Pool or the Lugger Inn across the road serves good food all day long, and do good Sunday roast lunches. By the harbour you will find the traditional Medieval Meadery where you can eat from a platter without the luxury of knives and forks.

The walk past the harbour will take you past various gift shops and cafés and eventually bring you to the bottom of the town centre where you can find high street shopping. St Michael's Mount is a 20-minute walk along the seafront and across the beach where you can walk the causeway in low tide or take the boat at high tide.

Newlyn, one of the UK's biggest fishing ports, is in walking distance going right across the promenade. If you like to cook, see if you can buy some local fish fresh direct from the busy fish market.

The Eden Project is just an hour and a half's drive northeast - perfect for a day trip. Seafarers can hop on a ferry and venture to the Isles of Scilly from the terminal at Penzance, or for something closer to the campsite but still perfect for ocean lovers, the beach at Sennen (just a 20-minute drive away) is very popular with surfers.

Nothing is far away, so get out and explore and enjoy!
