Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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.
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!
