Lakewell Touring and Camping Site: Water lilies on the lake

General

  • Small, friendly and family-run site on a five-acre smallholding
  • Within 10 minutes' drive of Perranporth's surfing beaches
  • Half an hour's drive from Bodmin Moor and Paradise Park zoo

Fond of fishing? Sometimes like a drop of cider? You’ll love it at Lakewell Touring and Camping Site, where there’s a fishing lake in the grounds for guests’ exclusive use and a cider farm with tours and tastings five minutes’ drive down the road.

If apple-based tipples and angling aren't top of your agenda, it's handy that this peaceful family-run site on a smallholding is conveniently close to surf beaches and cycle trails, coastal paths and moorland meanderings. It’s also less than five minutes’ drive from the village of Goonhavern, where there’s a pub and a shop, and, for those touring the area by public transport, bus links to popular seaside and surfing spots like Perranporth and Newquay.

Whether you’ve spent your days riding the waters, contemplating them, or doing something completely different, you’ll probably return ravenous, and if the pub and its menu seem too far to stray, you can pick up supplies in Perranporth or Newquay and have a barbecue back at base. Save a sausage for the dog, of course… canine pals are welcome on site too.

With the waves of Perranporth a 10-minute drive away, the site’s popular with surfers, and proprietors Peter and Jane have installed an outdoor tap for the sluicing off of wetsuits and other gear.

    The owners were very welcoming and helpful and were very understanding of our 2 young dogs as they were very cautious (and noisy) when approached by strangers or if anyone came close to our pitch. The pitches were a very good size and we were right next to the small lake which was very pretty.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I disliked were the showers. The shower heads were not very good (not all the holes were working) and they were not very powerful. There were only 3 showers and 2 toilets working which was fine for the out of season time that we went but I think this could cause problems when the site is busy. On saying this, I have spoken to one of the owners since we left and have been told that a new shower block is in the planning stage so we will definitely consider going back next year.

From the manager...

Thank you. We hope to see you again.

  • Liked: 

    The lake and campsite are all really nice. The owners are welcoming and helpful. Most importantly its quiet and there was plenty of space between pitches.

    Disliked: 

    It can be hard to travel without a car as there was very limited phone signal and almost no taxi availability. The road could be difficult to walk down into town as there was a lack of adequate paving.

    Really tidy and clean. Amazing campsite, best of our stay. Grass was cut nicely and everything was really lovely. Staff work hard around the clock to keep the facilities clean. Feel like the pictures could do with updating as definitely didn't get the impression it was this nice from the pictures!

    Disliked: 

    A LOT of signs to read while washing up, perhaps a notice board would be better! The showers weren't very powerful/hot which could be improved but that's about it!

    Nothing really although a point of note that the road beside site currently is busy due to A303 improvement works. May annoy some people but we had earplugs and didn’t really notice after a few days.

Local attractions

The beaches of Perranporth and Newquay (15 minutes) are a haven for surfers of all levels, and have schools offering tuition in wave riding... but there are plenty of other ways to travel about this part of Cornwall too. There’s horse trekking and beach galloping on the menu in Perranporth and bikes to hire in Cambrose (15 minutes) for a coast-to-coast trail along the old miners’ route to Cornwall’s southern shores.

Perranporth’s also the place to pick up the South West Coast Path for sea views and wildlife walks at height, and it’s half an hour to Bodmin if you want to see some of the county’s inland landscapes. On the edge of the ancient heaths, the Golitha Falls Nature Reserve has bluebell woods lining a long gorge that gives way eventually to a series of crashing cascades. It’s a similar distance to Bolventor for jaunts around the real Jamaica Inn and the resting place, so ‘tis said, of Excalibur at Dozmary Pool.

For close-up encounters with wildlife, pack your earplugs and stop off at the Screech Owl Sanctuary (20 minutes), or hang with the red pandas, Asian short-clawed otters and an ark-load of avian life at Paradise Park (30 minutes).

Soothe any ruffled feathers with a flit round Healy’s Cornish Cyder Farm, five minutes away, and once refreshed, take a quick chuff on the restored steam trains of the Lappa Valley Railway (15 minutes).

Must see

  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (3.9 miles)
  • Newquay Zoo (5.6 miles)
  • Blue Reef Aquarium (5.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Trerice (4.9 miles)
  • Trelissick Garden (9.2 miles)
