The site has magnificent views


For a traditional seaside escape or a relaxed weekend holiday in Cornwall, Penhale is the perfect place to stay. Our friendly, family-run campsite is set on a working organic farm covering 400 lush acres just outside Fowey, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Everywhere on the site enjoys spectacular countryside and sea views across St Austell Bay and the beautiful surrounding countryside inspired many of Daphne Du Maurier's world famous novels.

We provide self-catering accommodation in our caravan holiday homes as well as offering generous-sized level electric hook-up pitches and a clean, modern shower block for campers and tourers. The nearest beach, Polkerris, is only one mile away. Take a pleasant walk along the Saints Way to this beautiful sandy cove, with a popular water sports centre, historic pub and quality restaurant all overlooking the beach. Walk about a mile in the opposite direction and you will reach the fishing port of Fowey, where you can enjoy wandering quaint cobbled streets, sample a traditional cream tea and explore a range of quirky independent and luxury brand shops, traditional pubs and bustling restaurants.  

Our enviable location is a popular choice for camping in Cornwall as we are close to some great attractions, such as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, making it a great base from which to explore the rest of the county. Cornwall is steeped in history and rugged charm. With a slower pace of life, it’s the ideal escape from busy, modern lives. Visit ancient fishing villages and take in the breathtaking coastline while relaxing on a plethora of beautiful beaches, or take to the water sailing, kayaking or fishing.

Penhale has eleven static caravans. Tourers and tents are accommodated in a separate area offering electric hook-up points, free hot showers, pot wash, laundry and chemical disposal. There is also a free games room and small library.
