Welcome to Wheal Rose

Wheal Rose is a small, family run camping and touring park, set in a scenic Cornish valley with open countryside views and easy access off the A30. Located in the heart of Cornwall it is a fantastic base for exploring all the attractions that Cornwall has to offer, with an abundance of beaches close by. It is just 3 miles from the blue flag surfing beach of Porthtowan and a short drive from the spectacular beaches at Perranporth and Hayle. 

Step from the campsite directly onto an ancient tramway used by horse-drawn carriages for transporting copper, which is now a glorious trail in the Coast to Coast path. A haven for walkers and cyclists, it is surrounded by heathland and part of the dramatic and rugged countryside that inspired the Poldark novels.

For days away from the beaches the beautiful, historic city of Truro is a short drive away.

Our pitches are generously sized at excellent rates. We have a range of pitch sizes to choose from and some adjoining pitches that are perfect for two families together. There are also different areas in the park to cater for different needs, whether you are looking for a quieter area, a pitch near to the shower block or a place in the family friendly bottom field.  All pitches include electric hook up. And for a campsite experience with your own facilities there are a two great value, budget static caravans available to hire. Please tell us what you would like on booking and we will do our best to help.

In 2020 we are open until the 30th of September 2020, and for October half term week (Friday 23rd to Sunday 1st of November). We look forward to welcoming you to Wheal Rose Caravan & Camping Park and helping you to have a special holiday.
