Ponsandane Campsite is in an ideal situation, set within a 5 acre parkland field yet only a few minutes walk from the beautiful beaches of Mounts Bay. It is on level ground and is attractively screened from the road by mature trees with a stream running along it’s eastern edge. It is in close proximity to a Supermarket and the village of Gulval, with its Post Office, Church and Village Pub.

Go past the entrance to Tesco and take the next left after Tesco and the Builders Merchants. Follow this lane to the end, over a little bridge and left through the gate into Ponsandane Field.

There is a pedestrian access at the front of the field just off the Tesco roundabout. If arriving at Penzance railway or bus station, turn right up the hill and then right again at the top and walk back out of Penzance for about 10 minutes. When you reach the Tesco roundabout there is a crossing for pedestrians. Cross to the Tesco side of the road and you will see a little wooden gate to the left of the car park which leads directly into our field.
