Lakewell Touring and Camping Site: Sunset over 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.

Great site with clean facilities, lovely owners03/10/2022

  • Liked: 

    A warm welcome from Sherri and husband who explained the facilities. Toilets and showers very clean. Liked separate part to hang clothes and plenty of hooks in shower cubicle. Large well maintained pitch as was the whole site.

    Nice reception area where you could sit in until mid evening. Games and books available to borrow and leaflets about the area.

    We only stayed one night, visiting relatives, but the only other people on the site had stayed a month so must be good!

    Wi-Fi a bit patchy but not a problem.

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)
