  • With kayaking, canoeing, high ropes, trout fishing and cycling
  • Short drive to Liskeard and to the smugglers' site of Jamaica Inn
  • Play areas, boat hire, cycle path and Lakeside café serving cream teas

Bordered by the tors and moors of Bodmin, this roomy lakeside campsite at Siblyback Lake Country Park has a good range of water- and land-based activities for all ages and abilities.

Visitors can hire out sailboards, rowing boats, kayaks and sailing dinghies (or bring their own); friendly instructors are on site for tuition if needed. The site also has windsurfing kit and sailing dinghies for hire for the experienced, and you can launch your own craft at a small cost (please note you'll need insurance). Around the water, this is excellent birdwatching and walking territory; a pretty three-mile cycle path (fully accessible to wheelchair users) snakes around the lake to make the best of the spectacular views, and there's a high ropes course for kids (open at set session times), along with two play areas.

For fisherfolk, the lake is teeming with trout and is a Trout Master fishery, which means that if you catch a whopper it’ll be entered into the eponymous nationwide competition. Even if you don’t net the big one, you should still manage a decent catch: recent years have seen rod averages of three fish per angler. Fishing permits (available on site; fly fishing only) are required for everyone over 12 years of age.

Also on site is a lakeside café serving snacks, light meals and the understandably ubiquitous Cornish cream tea.

Local attractions

Nearby Bodmin is the highest and most sparsely populated area of Cornwall, a land of myth and mystery. Close to Siblyback are Dozmary Pool, alleged to be the final resting place of King Arthur’s Excalibur, and the moody Hurlers, three stone circles reputedly formed when a group of men who dared to play games on the Sabbath Day were turned to stone.

Other potential trips include a tour of the global greenery under the massive domes of the Eden Project, which lays on special activities for kids in the summer holidays, including circus skills, den building and water play, and a venture to the highest pub in Cornwall in the neighbouring village of Minions.

Also visit the seaside resort of Looe, two towns in one linked by a bridge over an inlet where you can watch the fishing boats bring in their catch, or the fishing village of Polperro, where cars are banned from the narrow streets.

As well as the many great beaches nearby, kids will enjoy a day at Crealy Adventure Park meeting the animals, scrambling around the play areas, and being spun around and splashed about on the rides.
