The Golden Lion Inn - Lakeside Camping: Another view of the site

General

  • Peaceful pub site on the shores of Stithians Lake
  • Award-winning gardens
  • Fishing and watersports available

It’s bottoms up at peaceful The Golden Lion Inn - Lakeside Camping on the shores of Stithians Lake, where you can enjoy a tipple and some top-notch pub grub at the inn just a flower bed away, either in the oak-beamed bar in front of one of the three log fires, or alfresco overlooking the award-winning gardens.

No need to worry either about not catching your zzzzzzzs after an evening out – the pub is food and family-oriented so there’s no concern about shenanigans after closing time.

All pitches are level, and the site also has internet access, a playground, and fishing and (non-motorised) watersports available. It’s within easy reach of local towns Redruth, Falmouth, Helston and Truro, and is less than an hour’s drive from the award-winning Eden Project.

Please note

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

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

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

    Stay here loads, even though it's only half an hour away - our ideal site really; it has hardstanding, lovely surroundings, nice clean utilities, pleny space, plus (and it's a big plus) the fantastic Golden Lion pub! The staff are great and couldn't fault them during covid with the measures they put in (and still do) to keep us all safe. We can eat outside or bring a takeaway back to the van, lovely food.

    The Golden Lion was very welcoming and the meals were good. From this location you can tour almost the whole of Cornwall. I wish we had booked a grass pitch but we put our caravan on a hard standing and attached it to the awning which we erected on the grass next to the caravan. We did not use the toilet and shower facilities as we have our own. This is our third visit to this campsite and have never been disappointed

Directions


Leave the westbound A30 at the Redruth exit and head through the centre of town in the direction of Lanner on the Falmouth road. At the top end of town there will be a junction with traffic lights where you should take the left hand turn signposted towards Four Lanes and Helston.

Go up the hill past Morrish's Fish and Chips on the right-hand side. At the crest of the hill, take the left-hand turn signposted Stithians Lake and Golden Lion Inn. Stay on the road for approximately two miles until you see the Golden Lion on the left across the causeway at the North end of Stithians Lake. The site is accessed from the rear of the pub car park.

This area is said to be among the windiest in Cornwall, so grab your wetsuit and go to the Stithian Lakes Watersports Centre, just 100 yards away from the park and with sailing and canoeing as well as windsurfing hire and tuition. There’s also a climbing wall, trim trail, children’s play area, Wow balls and fishing available, or you can take a lakeside walk or a picnic if the day’s a bit too still for surfing.
