Welcome to Mousehole Camping
A 500 metres walk takes you into the heart of the traditional village of Paul, which has a historic Church, an unspoilt pub with great food, drink and weekly live music, and a bus service from Penzance to Lands End.
A short downhill walk, giving you spectacular panoramic views over Mounts Bay, leads to the iconic and much-photographed harbour-side village of Mousehole, with its bustle of small boats, fascinating narrow streets of centuries-old stone cottages, an interesting range of small shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and pubs, easy access to the south-west coast path in both directions, as well as various festivals and events in the summer months.
The larger town of Penzance is a couple of miles away, providing the usual array of ‘High Street’ retailers, including supermarkets, food outlets and banks, together with many local independent shops, a regular ferry-boat as well as a helicopter service to the beautiful Scilly Isles, a main-line railway station, plentiful taxis and bus routes to most parts of West Cornwall, a recently refurbished sea-front open-air pool with a heated section, and a short walk across the causeway at low tide to St Michael’s Mount. There’s also a 24-hour ‘urgent care’ Hospital, GP surgeries, pharmacies, a leisure centre and cinema.
Between Mousehole and Penzance lies Newlyn, home of a large fishing fleet, an annual fish festival and several fresh fishmongers, as well as cafes, pubs and restaurants. The RNLI Penlee Lifeboat is situated here, its open days providing some hands-on experience and illustrating its remarkable and often tragic history.
And of course literally next to Mousehole Camping is Mousehole AFC, a friendly and progressive non-league football club, with a welcoming clubhouse and an increasing reputation as one of the best clubs, both on and off the field, in Cornwall!
