Mousehole Camping is a family and pet-friendly site based at a local football club in Paul, Penzance only a mile's walk (downhill) from the famous Mousehole Harbour.
Facilities include showers, a clubhouse on site selling soft and alcoholic drinks, pool table, table football, television and ample car parking. There are sinks in the shower blocks where people can wash up (there is no hot water tap on these sinks although there is hot water in the showers).
We are just 500 metres from a local pub serving great food and beers and wifi is available on site at a small charge.
Mousehole is not only an attractive village but also has a 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.
Nothing is very far away, so get out and explore and enjoy!

From the manager...
Hi Angela, Many thanks for your review and feedback. This will all be taken into account and acted on for the future. We are a new site and continually learning! I have checked again the advertisement and everything which is on there is factually correct, the content is supplied by us, Pitchup post the information which we provide. Apologies if this was not to your expectations and I assure you we will be better next year! We have already purchased new industrial steel sinks for washing facilities and the showers / toilets will be totally re-done with fully tiled individual cubicles etc
Wouldn't bother! 1 Sep 2014

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.

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
