This site does not currently take bookings here on

If you are the owner of this site, start taking bookings through by adding your business details.


We are a small quirky campsite, just for adults, situate in the beautiful Pentewan Valley, close to Mevagissey.

The site is in a sheltered sunny spot and picturesque area close to the beach. We are also ideally located for the Lost Gardens of Heligan which is within walking distance of the site. A short drive away is the Eden Project, and lots of other fabulous gardens.

For walkers and cyclists, our site joins the Pentewan Valley Trail, and so you have fabulous walks and cycle tracks in all directions, including woodland, stream trails, and access to the beach & SW Coast Path.

John's hearty breakfast baguettes are available, and can be delivered to your pitch.

    We have just returned home from a short tour of Cornwall in our VW T5 campervan

    We booked onto The Meadows for 3 nights at the beginning of our holiday and it was the best part of our trip.

    The site was quiet and so friendly, we stayed on one of the electric hookup pitches with a view across the meadow. Within the meadow are pitches for tents, if you love wild camping with the security of being on a site, look no further.

    All pitches are pretty much level and the whole site is very well maintained. Its really picturesque with plenty of bunting and bird song.

    The toilet block was modern and immaculate and the showers were hot. There were books to loan, campfires are encouraged and fire pits are available to hire and wood is provided.

    Its the first time we've booked an adults only site and it made so much difference to the overall tranquility of the site.

    If you enjoy walking and/or cycling we found it to be perfectly placed on the scenic cycle trails within easy reach of Mevagissey, Pentawan and St Austell.

    It was nice to have the option of wifi which is available for free near the decking area and was more than adequate to check email, social media etc.

    The site provides bins for recycling cans/glass etc

    This site has such a great vibe about it. The owners are helpful and very friendly, we loved our stay and would highly recommend it if you're looking for peace and quiet in a beautiful setting.

    A real jewel of a site
