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 little ones. 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 Cafe' serving delicious snacks and drinks, plus an onsite shop and launderette.

Please note

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

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

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

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

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

Twin axle 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.

    Children's play areas
    Friendly staff
    Plenty of showers.
    Not really anything to dislike
    There was something for everyone we had 6 of our 7 children aged 5-18 and there was something for them all even free wifi in the play barn so the teens could check their snaps!

    Disliked: 

    Just a suggestion the new showers were lovely but there were no hooks to hang up your clothes and when all 4 showers were being used the drainage wasn't very good so I ended up using the old showers when the little one was with me.
    Some pitches were on a slope.

  • Liked: 

    Brilliant camp site, everything you need for a family. It was great to have set places like the game room for the kids to hang out. It location was perfect and easy to find. We were pitched real close to the park.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing is the booking of the pool which seems pointless. But that was a minor issue for a great site!

  • Liked: 

    The amount of space in your pitch, the toilets and showers, the staff, the opportunity for a hot tub and pool.

    Disliked: 

    The hit tub was broken (wouldn't heat up) when we booked but the staff were very friendly and offered it for us the next day but we were leaving so wasn't a big problem.

From the manager...

Pop back for a free hottub whenever your passing!
