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. We have a range of pitch sizes suitable for social distancing and a number of adjoining pitches that are perfect for family and friends. 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 small number of 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.

All bookings have new and flexible coronavirus terms, and we have introduced new measures for check-in, check-out and our shop to help with social distancing and keep us all safe.


The site opens from 10th of July to 1st November in 2020. We look forward to welcoming you to Wheal Rose Caravan & Camping Park and helping you to have a special holiday.
