Lakeside Pods: Interior of a pod

General

  • Peaceful site overlooking Stithians Reservoir in Cornish countryside
  • The Eden Project a 50-minute drive; Falmouth shops 20 minutes
  • Next-door to a pub and lakeside walks; beach within 20 minutes’ drive

Set on the edge of Stithians Reservoir, Lakeside Pods provide a smashing base for exploring Cornwall. Why? Well, it's handily located equidistant from both the north and south coasts, with Redruth, Helston and Truro all within 30 minutes’ drive.

This site has plenty of peaceful outdoor space – just the spot for chilling and watching the world waft past. A set of well-maintained toilets are provided, and in the shower block, there’s also a washing-up area, as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer (coin-operated) if your clothes need sprucing up.

Lakeside Pods has direct access to the reservoir and is a short walk from Stithians Lake Watersports Centre, where windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding are just some of the activities on offer. Alternatively, you can kick back, relax and soak up the watery views, or head down here to catch a cracking Cornish sunset.

If you want to spark up the barbecue, pick up supplies in Redruth (10 minutes’ drive) but you should know that there is an award-winning, lakeside pub right next door, serving delicious food and a cracking pint – and it’s just a short stumble back to your comfy accommodation back at base.

Local attractions

Cyclists gather around please, as you’re in pole position here for pedalling to the ruined mine at The Great Flat Lode (10 minutes’ cycle) or whizzing along Bissoe Cycle Trail (10 minutes). And walkers, you’re in luck too, as Stithians Reservoir is (literally) on your doorstep and is ringed by a hike through woodland and heath.

To hit up the Cornish coast, head north to Portreath beach (20 minutes’ drive) for harbourside walks and bodyboarding, or turn south to Falmouth for a swim off the sandy, Blue Flag beach at Gyllyngvase (both 20 minutes). Watersports buffs should have a go at surfing on Towan Beach (40 minutes) or hire a dinghy from Mylor Yacht Harbour (25 minutes) to get out on the Carrick Roads estuary.

And what about Cornwall’s real big-hitting attractions? The Eden Project (55 minutes) is worthy of a day’s trip to see all the madcap art installations and rare plants in glass biodomes. At Land’s End Landmark Attraction (an hour) you can pose for selfies at the iconic signpost, while The Lost Gardens of Heligan (55 minutes) are open for romantic strolls amid wonderful plantings.
