“A fantastic, comfy camping experience”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves for the weekend but I very much doubt this will be the case next time we return. Our 2 and a half year old son loved running around and riding his bike along the tracks and we felt very safe with him there.
The pods are well equipped, the beds very comfy and there is plnty of hot water. Even during a pod shaking thunder storm, we felt safe and dry. It was lovely to eat al fresco and fire up the BBQ for dinner. Only thing to watch out for is the midges. We all got bitten.
The lakes are lovely and there is lots of wildlife to see - we spotted herons and lots of dragonflies. Am sure you'd see a lot more without a noisy toddler in tow.
This is a great place to come with a group of friends and next time we'd probably come back with mates and book a few pods. The playpark area is fantastic for older kids - might be nice to add in a few bits for toddlers too. Only other thing that is needed is a sun shade/umbrella for really hot days.
Lots to see and do locally although we were pretty happy just chilling at the camp!

“Beautifully presented pods with attention to detail”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Very welcoming and helpful owners. The pod was well designed with everything that you might need, right down to the tea and coffee and even a pint of milk in the fridge!
At lot of time and thought has gone into the design of Trecombe Lakes, would definitely recommend it!
Great for children as there is a play park for them and plenty of investigating around the lakes to be done!
Good location as it's off 'the beaten track' but not far from Falmouth. Glendurgan gardens are worth a visit which are only a 5 minute drive away. It has a beautiful little cove at the bottom of it.

“Tranquility, beauty and comfort - yet it was a campsite!”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We (family of 4) spent a wonderful 3 nights at Trecombe Lakes. Thought it was a little early in the year to get our tent out so we looked for reasonably priced glamping and stumbled across the newly opened Trecombe Lakes. The setting is stunning. Far enough away from the main roads to ensure a complete chill out, yet close enough to Falmouth (about 15 mins by car) to have easy access to provisions and entertainment. The pods are suberb - warm at night, well equipped for sleeping, showering and cooking (both indoors and outdoors). They also have enough space to remain indoors if the weather is too inclement to relax on the deck, although the sun shone for us everyday! The lake is naturally very pretty and the rowing boat, play area and open spaces are more than enough for the kids to entertain themselves (little ones who don't swim would need to be accompanied by an adult at the lake). A great facility which deserves every success in the future.

“Glamping at its very best”
Reviewed 2 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

I have just returned from a 5 day trip, and had the most amazing time. The site has been created with such attention to detail and to a very high spec. Just perfect!
The site comprises of 4 pods each with their own decking area, BBQ (& utensils) and fire pit. The pods come fully furnished, including pots & pans, cutlery, kettle, toaster, bed linen and towels.
There is an excellent wooden play area, fishing lake with its own rowing boat, tyre swing, & an indoor play area with a bat cam.
The site is near Falmouth but we had such a good time at the site we only did 1 day trip during our 5 day stay.
