Welcome to Wheal Rose

Wheal Rose is a relaxed camping and touring park, set in a valley with open countryside views and easy access off the A30. In an ideal location for exploring all the attractions that Cornwall has to offer, it is just 3 miles from the blue flag surfing beach of Porthtowan and a short drive from the spectacular beach at Perranporth. 

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, and leads to Portreath beach. 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. There are different areas in the park to cater for different needs - for friends together or for quieter privacy, for easy access to the children's playground or just quick access for a single overnight stay.  We have pitches with electric hook up for tents, motorhomes or caravans, alongside a small number of static caravans available to hire. Please tell us what you would like on booking and we will do our best to accommodate you.


The site opens from 1st May to 30th September in 2020. We look forward to welcoming you to Wheal Rose Caravan & Camping Park and helping you to have a special holiday.

Grab a bite to eat at the Blue Bar with fantastic views overlooking the beach in the dunes, or at the Porthtowan beach cafe close by. Both are family and dog friendly.  


The Cornish Mineral Tramways provide a perfect way to explore the history of the area. This 60km network of trails is mainly traffic free and follows the ancient tramways used to transport copper and tin.


From technical mountain bike trails to gentle level walks, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
