Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Perfect site in the perfect location. Fantastic views of Mount's Bay. Excellent location for exploring Cornwall. Lovely quiet site. Highly recommend. 5 min walk into Mousehole and 50 mins to Penzance. Caravan and site were both clean and tidy. Could spend hours just watching the Bay for dolphins and seals, the latter which joined us for a swim in the morning

We've just come back from a wonderful 7 night stay at Penlee Caravan Park. The Holiday home we stayed in was clean, comfortable and cosy, with everything you would need for a 'self catering' vacation. The 'home' we stayed in was Number 3 and the views across Mounts Bay are absolutely spectacular.. my wife was sick of me saying 'look at that view'!! The site itself is small and very quiet.. and it's in a great location for Mousehole or Newlyn.. about 5 mins walk from Mousehole and around 12 - 15 mins walk from Newlyn. We had intended on 'eating out' most nights but ended up 'eating in' or in the lovely little garden area next to the Holiday Home complete with picnic bench! The shower in the Holiday home was absolutely brilliant.. better than many we've experienced in some good hotels! I know David, the owner, has invested in a new water system and it's definitely worked!! All in all a brilliant break.. thank you David 😁

Exactly what we needed! An extremely clean, peaceful and small caravan park within an easy 5 mins stroll in to mousehole. If you are after an on site bar, entertainment and lots for kids to do, this is not for you. We arrived for a week in august with our 13 year old in need of relaxation and this is what we got. The owner was on hand when we first arrived and was available if needed. The caravans all appear to have the most wonderful view of the bay. Ours had 2 bedrooms and was extremely clean. It was cosy and again, just what we needed. Shower has wonderful and the beds comfortable. Would highly recommend this. Only 16 caravans in a horseshoe shape. Just fabulous. We will be back.

We have just returned from David’s lovely caravan Park in Mousehole. Our last caravan holiday was 40 years ago so didn’t really know what to expect. It was a total surprise to us how cosy and comfortable we were. The caravans are spotlessly clean and operated with full Covid caution, they are fully equipped absolutely everything you need. Heating at the flick of a switch and hot water all day, and a full force shower. The views were amazing. We felt safe and secure. The whole experience is expertly run we booked a return trip before we left. Thank you for a great stay.

Lovely little caravan park. David was really helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Have been there twice, and will definitely go back. Absolutely gorgeous surroundings, and not too far from amazing countryside.

Have just come back from two fabulous weeks on this brilliant site...the caravans and the views are stunning. Loved sitting at night and watching the little fishing boats coming an going, makes you realize the dangers they put themselves in to catch fish. The caravans are so well positioned that everyone has a sea view and they are spotless upon arrival. A lot of hard work goes into to making them so under the present climate. Have already booked for next year and we cannot wait. You would not want to stay anywhere else.

This was our 4th stay at Penlee Caravan Park and we absolutely love it’s fantastic location. It is a lovely quiet site a very short walk from the centre of Mousehole. We have stayed in a few different caravans and some of the vans are newer than others but all have fantastic views. Dave the owner is great and any issues are sorted out immediately. Looking forward to returning next summer.
