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, 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.

    Disliked: 

    We was allowed to book for the night even though it was closed for the year. So we ended up having to cut our holiday short as nowhere else had availability that night.

From the manager...

I am sorry for the confusion and inconvenience caused

    Excellent campsite, showerblocks/toilets were very clean, access to washing machine and dryer, friendly owner, not a huge campsite and pitches were well spread apart, 5 minute drive to perranporth beach, 15 minute cycle to perranporth beach, 15 minutes from a big supermarket which was useful and 20 minutes into Newquay, wifi available next to reception (we had no problem)

    Quiet small lower field with lovely surroundings, very clean facilities, helpful friendly staff. Great area for walking once away from main road.

    Disliked: 

    Busy main road at entrance to site with little or no paths in either direction. Would be very noisy if camping in upper field.

A nice clean well maintained site, some limitations for motorhomes15/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomDavid H.Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This was a very nice site and the site mangers/staff were very welcoming. The site is well maintained and clean and has all the standard amenities that you would need and I would say ideal for tents and caravans. The pitches, all grass, were fairly level and well maintained.

    A reasonably short drive to the key holiday sites and beaches in the area and of course Truro not to far either.

    We would comment that there is no WiFi unless you sit outside reception, (and limited 4G) not an issue for us as we are of an age where we can do without. But some may find this problematic.

    Note the Dislikes are there for clarity and not a complaint. The water point issue could be easily rectified.

    Disliked: 

    Awkward for Motorhomes to fill inboard water tank as the water points were made of short hose physically taped to the tap and as such unable to connect a long hose to fill tanks - OK for those with external water tanks but not ideal for inboard tanks. Got quite a soaking filling tank. There is no Motorhome grey waste disposal point to empty inboard tanks.

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 inner 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)
