Getting here

Noongallas Campsite is 2.6 miles from Penzance train station. That's a 10-minute drive, a 30-minute bike ride or a 1-hour walk.

The road to the campsite becomes increasingly narrow and windy. We advise driving slowly and with caution. The road is shared with a dairy farm so expect to meet cows on the road. You must wait for the farmer to signal that you can pass.

On your first visit, you may think the road goes on forever - we promise we're at the end!

Showers and toilets

For your comfort and convenience, our showers are not coin-operated. Please respect this by keeping showers swift - especially during busy periods.

Please do not rinse sandy wetsuits/children/dogs in the showers as the sand can settle in the drains. You are welcome to use the hose in the garden.

Please do not flush sanitary items, nappies or wipes down the toilets as this will block the septic tank. We, unfortunately, cannot accommodate chemical toilets.

Kitchen and recycling facilities

Our 'bottle building' behind the shower and toilet block provides washing-up facilities and fridge freezers to help with your stay. We ask that you consider others when using the fridge freezers as there is limited space.

Due to our remote location, refuse collections don't reach Noongallas. All camping waste is sorted and transferred by us, by hand.

Please rinse and sort your recycling carefully. If you are local and have space in your vehicle at the end of your stay, please consider helping us by taking some of your rubbish/recycling home with you.

! No dead tents, airbeds, barbecues etc to be left on site - thank you.


We encourage the use of campfires at Noongallas. You are welcome to bring your own wood, or you can buy a bag here for £5.


Please keep campfires within the confines of established fireplaces. Fireplaces must not be moved or new ones built.

For safety, please keep a bucket of water close by and extinguish it before going to bed.


Dogs are welcome at Noongallas and we're sure they'll enjoy the surrounding areas. The lower fields and woods are perfect for letting your dog run around.

Please remember to clean up after them and keep them on a lead whilst on site. Do not tie them up in or near the shower block or yard.


For the enjoyment of everybody please respect your camping neighbours.

Whilst we welcome a guitar sing-song around the campfire - please no speakers or amplified music.

The noise curfew is 11 pm.

Rowdy, abusive or very noisy behaviour will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave.
