NearbyWalk the 15 minutes to picture perfect Mousehole, an attractive fishing village centred around its beautiful old harbour. Wander the cobbled streets visiting the art galleries and independent shops or catch a bus from there to Penzance, the most well known spot on the Penwith Peninsula and just 3 miles from the campsite. St Michael's Mount (01736 710265) is then just a 20-minute walk along the seafront and across the beach – you can walk the causeway at low tide or take the boat when it's high. Elsewhere, you can't come this far and not go all the way out to Land's End, the UK's most south westerly point. Just a couple of miles to its east Porthcurno beach is extremely popular, though its surprising treat is actually the overlooking Telegraph Museum (01736 810966), marking what was once the world’s biggest submarine telegraph station. Step inside to find family quiz trails, secret WWII tunnels and interactive exhibits. The adjacent Minack Theatre (01736 810181) is also a must-see. Bring a blanket and picnic and watch a play at the ocean’s edge.
Food & DrinkAt busy times the MFC clubhouse opens, serving well-priced drinks. Just 500 metres away, the tiny village of Paul has a great local, The Kings Arms (01736 731224), serving hearty pub meals and a wide range of beers. Wi-Fi is available at small extra charge.
