Siblyback Lake Campsite: Top-tiered pitches, a slight slope on some but the view makes it up

General

  • With kayaking, canoeing, high ropes, trout fishing and cycling
  • Short drive to Liskeard and to the smugglers' site of Jamaica Inn
  • Play areas, boat hire, cycle path and Lakeside café serving cream teas

Bordered by the tors and moors of Bodmin, the roomy lakeside site at Siblyback Lake Country Park has a good range of water- and land-based activities for all ages and abilities.

Visitors can hire out sailboards, rowing boats, kayaks and sailing dinghies (or bring their own); friendly instructors are on site for tuition if needed. The site also has windsurfing kit and sailing dinghies for hire for the experienced, and you can launch your own craft at a small cost (please note you'll need insurance). Around the water, this is excellent birdwatching and walking territory; a pretty three-mile cycle path (fully accessible to wheelchair users) snakes around the lake to make the best of the spectacular views, and there's a high ropes course for kids (open at set session times), along with two play areas.

For fisherfolk, the lake is teeming with trout and is a Trout Master fishery, which means that if you catch a whopper it’ll be entered into the eponymous nationwide competition. Even if you don’t net the big one, you should still manage a decent catch: recent years have seen rod averages of three fish per angler. Fishing permits (available on site; fly fishing only) are required for everyone over 12 years of age.

Also on site is a lakeside café serving snacks, light meals and the understandably ubiquitous Cornish cream tea.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Beautiful area, peaceful08/09/2020

  • Electric hardstanding motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The walk around the lake was lovely and accessible to all, wheelchair users to small children on bikes. We walked our excitable terriers around the lake morning and evening, and they loved it. Fields adjacent to the lake were full of cows and sheep with well-maintained fences, so our terriers had no chance of getting into the areas. The lake was busy and well used by all ages. We did not go on to the lake during this stay but will on the next visit.
    The staff welcomed us straight away—concise instructions about the site. Left us to enjoy our stay. Pitch was well maintained and close to the cafe and toilet.
    Used cafe once for coffee and cake, the cake was homemade, prices comparable with large franchises. Showers and changing rooms were not available because of CV19. However, this was not a big issue as a set of universal toilets were left open 24/7 next to the cafe.
    Other campsite users were considerate and well-spaced from each other and tolerated the excitable dogs.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike but a beware. The access roads are typical Cornish lanes and passing other vehicles, especially large vans/motorhomes, can be quite tight. Roads also busy with cyclists, so patience needed.

    Electric hook-ups pitches not level. No biggie, if motorhomes come prepared.

  • Liked: 

    Location was amazing. Big open space with lake and park, great for children. Lovely for birdwatching and walking. Lots of water activities for guests to try and could use own equipment on the lake for a few of £8 per day. Staff were lovely - when you found them! And cafe staff were advisable on gluten free foods they served which is always reassuring for a coeliac.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet facilities weren’t very clean. There was no check in procedure and had to go looking for help - when eventually found the lady was lovely. When calling the site to ask questions there was no answer - for two separate numbers. No WiFi which didn’t bother us but may bother others.

    Having to pay to launch my paddle board on the lake. I had wrongly thought as we were staying on site that we would be able to use the lake.(I probably just didn’t read the small print, but the staff were not very helpful)

Local attractions

Nearby Bodmin is the highest and most sparsely populated area of Cornwall, a land of myth and mystery. Close to Siblyback are Dozmary Pool, alleged to be the final resting place of King Arthur’s Excalibur, and the moody Hurlers, three stone circles reputedly formed when a group of men who dared to play games on the Sabbath Day were turned to stone.

Other potential trips include a tour of the global greenery under the massive domes of the Eden Project, which lays on special activities for kids in the summer holidays, including circus skills, den building and water play, and a venture to the highest pub in Cornwall in the neighbouring village of Minions.

Also visit the seaside resort of Looe, two towns in one linked by a bridge over an inlet where you can watch the fishing boats bring in their catch, or the fishing village of Polperro, where cars are banned from the narrow streets.

As well as the many great beaches nearby, kids will no doubt enjoy a day at Crealy Adventure Park meeting the animals, scrambling around the play areas, and being spun around and splashed about on the rides.

Must see

  • Eden Project (15.6 miles)
  • Tintagel Castle (16.2 miles)
