Penhale Caravan and Camping Park


Product Description

Visit us at Penhale Caravan and Camping Park in Cornwall – in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with breathtaking views over St Austell Bay.

For a traditional seaside holiday or a quiet weekend getaway, Penhale is the perfect place to stay – a small, relaxed, family-run park on a working organic farm on the outskirts of Fowey, set in the most beautiful countryside on Cornwall’s sheltered south coast.


We have two camping fields with 34 electric hook up points.

The camping fields at Penhale Park overlook gentle rolling farmland and St Austell Bay. In summer the swallows swoop and dive over the fields and the hedgerows come alive with wild flowers. At night you can see the lights of Mevagissey twinkling in the distance over the bay.

We have been busy levelling more pitches and adding further electric hook up points. There are now 34 electric pitches which are mostly level and some are now on hard standing. Many have their own water tap. Pitch sizes vary, so call us on 01726 833425 to discuss your individual needs. We also offer standard camping, with plenty of space to spread out and no overcrowding.

At Penhale we are very proud of our ten holiday homes. The view from each one is spectacular, overlooking gentle rolling farmland to the coast and out to sea. In such a peaceful, quiet setting, our holiday homes provide the perfect place to unwind, and a great base to explore the county.
