Spur of the minute booking in our hired VW camper. Cleanest facilities ever seen, visiting cocktail bar, all round a great find. Very friendly owners and whole park kept immaculate. Highly recommend to all couples looking for a site in Cornwall.

We have spent the last two weeks at this site and cannot recommend it highly enough. The shower block and toilets are immaculate, the site is tended every day and looks beautiful. John and Lynn arrange for people to come and serve wood fired pizzas, cocktails and a doorstep cornish breakfast so there is everything you could possibly want. You...

The Meadows was everything we expected from their website. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The pitches were flat and plenty of space for awnings. The toilet and shower block was cleaned regularly through day, plenty of hot water (although the showers were on a timed button a bit tricky when washing your hair!) Through the week there are visiting...

On arrival we were shown various spots were we could pitch our tent, near the road with sun in the evening or opposite side of the field with morning sun. We choose the opposite side of the field and really enjoyed the park and pitch using wheelbarrows to...

Just spent 2 weeks here and I must say it's very well layed out. We arrived after a very long drive. The lovely reception we got on arrival from Lynn made us forget about the drive. We were shown to our large pitch and told about the spotless at all times of the day showers and toilets. Lynn and John...

It's such a pity that this site is located so close to a main road. The setting is beautiful, with carefully laid out pitches that allow everyone access and views across the meadow. But that traffic noise was such a distraction ! It spoilt the tranquility of the place for us. Maybe the noise isn't so bad if you are...

Small and friendly campsite situate in the Pentewan Valley, Cornwall, uk. We cater for caravans, campervans, motor homes (limited pitches) and tents of all shapes and sizes. We are a natural meadow site, and dog friendly with a stream running along side.Our shower block is top notch! For "proper campers" (i.E none electric) we have seclude pitches in our wildflower meadow. You can walk to Pentewan Sands, Heligan Gardens, Mevagissey and St Austell from the site along the Pentewan Valley Trail. This trail is a cycle trail linking to National Route 3, and for walkers links up to the SWCP. We are also ideally located for visiting the Eden Project and walking the South West Coastal Path.If you want to camp with us but more hassle free we have two vintage caravans "Lottie" and "Mabel"available to rent and kitted out oh so stylishly. ... more   less
