Lakewell Touring and Camping Site: Water lilies on the lake

General

  • Small, friendly and family-run site on a five-acre smallholding
  • Within 10 minutes' drive of Perranporth's surfing beaches
  • Half an hour's drive from Bodmin Moor and Paradise Park zoo

Fond of fishing? Sometimes like a drop of cider? You’ll love it at Lakewell Touring and Camping Site, where there’s a fishing lake in the grounds for guests’ exclusive use and a cider farm with tours and tastings five minutes’ drive down the road.

If apple-based tipples and angling aren't top of your agenda, it's handy that this peaceful family-run site on a smallholding is conveniently close to surf beaches and cycle trails, coastal paths and moorland meanderings. It’s also less than five minutes’ drive from the village of Goonhavern, where there’s a pub and a shop, and, for those touring the area by public transport, bus links to popular seaside and surfing spots like Perranporth and Newquay.

Whether you’ve spent your days riding the waters, contemplating them, or doing something completely different, you’ll probably return ravenous, and if the pub and its menu seem too far to stray, you can pick up supplies in Perranporth or Newquay and have a barbecue back at base. Save a sausage for the dog, of course… canine pals are welcome on site too.

With the waves of Perranporth a 10-minute drive away, the site’s popular with surfers, and proprietors Peter and Jane have installed an outdoor tap for the sluicing off of wetsuits and other gear.

    Very friendly and welcoming staff who couldn't do enough to help us. Beautiful site with great facilities. Spotlessly clean shower / toilet block at all hours. Especially liked the wetsuit cleaning area. Great location with a pub and well stocked shop 3 min drive / 15 min walk away. Thank you to the staff, we would certainly stay again

    The campsite was lush, neatly kept grass areas, clean facilities and friendly owners! Wetsuit washing facilities was great to come back from the beach and being able to rinse off under! The showers were warm and fridge available to keep food in. We enjoyed our stay here and would return

    Disliked: 

    The only dislikes we had is that the shower heads release in a cone with a large section which misses your head, difficult to wash in. Fridge felt a bit on the warm side.

From the manager...

Thank you for your feedback. We will look into the issue with the fridge.

  • Liked: 

    location of the site. It was obvious that the current owners who had just taken it on and cared greatly for the way it looked and the greeting that we received. I liked the fact that I had sent an e mail enquiry and got a phone call back - felt more personal.

    Disliked: 

    Didn't like the shower block at all I'm afraid. It was a converted shed - no problem with this. However , as such there was very little ventilation and the only window in the space wouldn't open very well. As you can imagine a constant flow of 2 people showering and 2 using the toilets in the morning - not so nice.

From the manager...

Thank you for your feedback. We are expecting to either renovate or replace the toilet block for next season.

Local attractions

The beaches of Perranporth and Newquay (15 minutes) are a haven for surfers of all levels, and have schools offering tuition in wave riding... but there are plenty of other ways to travel about this part of Cornwall too. There’s horse trekking and beach galloping on the menu in Perranporth and bikes to hire in Cambrose (15 minutes) for a coast-to-coast trail along the old miners’ route to Cornwall’s southern shores.

Perranporth’s also the place to pick up the South West Coast Path for sea views and wildlife walks at height, and it’s half an hour to Bodmin if you want to see some of the county’s inland landscapes. On the edge of the ancient heaths, the Golitha Falls Nature Reserve has bluebell woods lining a long gorge that gives way eventually to a series of crashing cascades. It’s a similar distance to Bolventor for jaunts around the real Jamaica Inn and the resting place, so ‘tis said, of Excalibur at Dozmary Pool.

For close-up encounters with wildlife, pack your earplugs and stop off at the Screech Owl Sanctuary (20 minutes), or hang with the red pandas, Asian short-clawed otters and an ark-load of avian life at Paradise Park (30 minutes).

Soothe any ruffled feathers with a flit round Healy’s Cornish Cyder Farm, five minutes away, and once refreshed, take a quick chuff on the restored steam trains of the Lappa Valley Railway (15 minutes).

Must see

  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (6.2 kilometres)
  • Newquay Zoo (9.0 kilometres)
  • Blue Reef Aquarium (9.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Trerice (7.8 kilometres)
  • Trelissick Garden (14.7 kilometres)
