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.

    Unfortunately due to storms the bell tents were badly damaged and we weren’t able to stay! The owner was quick to contact us and arranged for a full refund. We will definitely look to rebook in the future

Great site with excellent facilities and helpful staff09/18/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomJodie L.Confirmed

  • Primitive grass RV site
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    - Managers were very friendly and helpful and we liked their little "reception" campervan/tent
    - Toilets, showers and washing up facilities were exceptional for a campsite as they were the football club's facilities
    - Great site overall, good value for money

    Disliked: 

    Only two very minor things:
    - Having to walk all the way around the football pitch to get to the toilets when it's raining!
    - Steep incline leading up to the field - be careful with low, long motorhomes

    The campsite was clean and the pitches were big.
    Grass was nice and the owners were lovely.
    Toilets and showers were clean

    Disliked: 

    the toilets and showers are really far away, camping with young children that is not ideal.
    Even though the pitches are level the tent pegs kept bending and wouldn't go in the ground.

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)

National Trust

  • Trengwainton Garden (2.7 miles)
