Welcome to Mousehole Camping
Welcome to Mousehole Camping and Glamping, a small, family and dog friendly camp site based at local football club Mousehole AFC, which is situated near the village of Paul, Penzance in beautiful West Cornwall.
Our summer camping season runs from April to mid-September. Our site is ideal for campervans, tents and small motorhomes (7m max) but please note that we do not accept caravans and we are NOT suitable for larger motorhomes as the approach roads from Penzance are narrow and there is a short steep ramp at the site entrance.
We welcome small groups, walkers, cyclists and campers looking for a quiet ‘Cool Camping’ campsite in a great Cornish location. Well behaved dogs and their well behaved owners are welcome! Please note that we are a family campsite and operate a ‘quiet campsite’ policy between 11pm and 7am – so if you want to party through the night then please look elsewhere for a busier site!
From mid-September through to the end of March we make 11 hardstanding pitches available at low season prices to give self-contained campervans touring Cornwall a place to stay with an electric hook-up.
Note, however, that our facilities are limited for the off season period but showers, toilets , elsan and water is still available.
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 Isles of Scilly, 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.
Easily reachable on foot, by car or public transport are the popular Sennen Cove, Lamorna Cove, Porthcurno and St Ives to name but a few.
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!
