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, 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 here 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.

Lovely quiet family friendly site, clean and friendly! 05/10/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Martin H. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Fantastic location and well sheltered with good hedge and tree cover.

    Very tidy site and the utility shed with showers, toilets, washing machine, tumble dryer. Iron and washing up sinks was very clean and welcome!

    Generous sized pitches and will allow a pup tent option.

    A brilliant base to see a great part of Cornwall from!

    Disliked: 

    As it is on a main road it is very easy to find but the trade off with this is traffic noise.

    Also as it does not have a club house or on site activities for children this may put some off.

    However, if you want a quieter life this is an excellent option!

    There is free Wi-Fi as the mobile signal is terrible but this is only around the reception area. It was very useful to have it though!

    The moment we arrive we were greeted by a very friendly Peter. He made us feel very welcome. The site was very well maintained and had everything you'd need. Not a huge site but that made it nice and personal. Had a few others nearby but we weren't all cramped into a corner together. We had loads of space. For only £12 a night, it was fantastic.

Friendly staff but you’ll need flip flops in the showers! 01/09/2018

  • Liked: 

    The staff were friendly and welcoming as we arrived, and our stay was very affordadable.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches were uneven and the showers were dirty and muddy each morning. I also shared my shower with a couple of particularly large garden spiders...
    We were also disappointed by the WiFi which was only available if you left your pitch and went and stood outside reception.

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 inner 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)

Cycle routes
