General

  • Excellent fishing opportunities
  • Close to Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project
  • On-site facilities including outdoor heated pool and Cosy Cafe

Meadow - tick. Lakes - tick. But there’s much more behind the name: the general gorgeousness of said meadows and lakes, for a start, and the fact that guests can fish the teeming waters at zero charge.

There are four coarse fishing lakes to choose from at Meadow Lakes, stocked with everything from carp to eels - just pick up a permit from reception before you get going, and make sure there’s an adult with any under 16s.

Then there are the friendly donkeys and goats waiting to greet you; the lovely outdoor heated pool, open from late May to early September, with a separate splash pool for smaller guests. And that’s before getting started on the rest of the facilities which include indoor and outdoor play areas, a dedicated area for dog walking, wifi, the 'Cosy Café' serving delicious snacks and drinks, plus an on-site shop and launderette.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 31/05 and 01/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Please be aware that you would require your own transport as there is no bus stops outside the park. Also taxis can be very expensive.

Meadow Lakes is a family site. We also do not permit groups of four or more under 25s via Pitchup.com.

Reviewer's country: United KingdomBryony V.Confirmed

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

    spacious pitch, relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. very little light pollution and really quiet at night. Kids loved the animals and the pool was the warmest we have ever used outdoors. Although the toilet facilities in our field were a bit tired they were generally clean and warm. Lovely views across the countryside and easy access to local amenities. good play areas for children. We don't like fishing but the lakes were really lovely just to wander around.

    Disliked: 

    you have to pre book the pool and can only use it for 1 hour at a time. If there is space you can pop back to reception and arrange an additional hour but our children usually stay in a pool for at least 3 hours at a time. Was a pain to make them get out after an hour each time and see if there was space later in the day.
    £7 per night for our gazebo seemed pricey but I am not an expert.

From the manager...

thanks for your comments Briony we take them on board both good and bad . fabulous, fabulous pictures though love them !
