We have not long returned from our week long stay at Meadow Lakes. We used to come to this site as a family when I was a child when it was called Trencreek. It is a very different place to then. The old barn is gone and the animals are now all 'safely' in cages instead of roaming free as they used to. There are much fewer of them now too. Despite this, we had an enjoyable week there, although this was a lot to do with the seeing family. We stayed in a tent in the unnamed field below primrose field. There are no non-electric pitches up a hill. Our pitch was nice and flat, but very near the lakes and no wind, so we were midged to death every sunset. This was a shame as one of the joys of camping, is sitting out in the last of the evening light enjoying the atmosphere, but we had to retreat inside rapidly. If the site had been full, the pitches were were not accurately spaced.

The shower facilities in primrose field were very good and you got fit walking up and down the hill to go to them! Free, plenty of push button hot water, although non-adjustable temperature. The thing that perplexed us was a real shortage of washing up facilities. We found a couple of sinks in the laundry, but that was a long trek and not obviously washing up as opposed to washing clothes.

The kids enjoyed the playgrounds, but again they were a nearly 10 min walk from our field. The play barn is a good idea.

They've improved the roads since the old days so no driving around in muddy fields.

There are a few essentials missing for campers like the washing up. It would be nice to be able to charge phones or freeze ice packs. We didn't find either.

The pool is limited to 25 every hour, which works well, but fills up quickly.

The caravans and lodges seemed to dominate the site where we were and we did not get the usual 'camping spirit' when other people were sitting out or their kids playing.

We stayed with family who didn't camp, so the accommodation options are a boon. We discussed, would we come back again and on the whole I would, but the midges really spoilt it for us. Given there are no un-sheltered (to get a bit of breeze) non-electric pitches away from the lakes, I would say probably not, which is a shame as the vicinity in Cornwall is ideal for many beaches, shops, towns and all that you could require from a visit to Cornwall, although you have to drive to everything.

Bit like staying at a girls High School. Don't do this don't do that and don`t walk about with no shoes. We went primarily for my husband`s fishing but had also a pool for me to swim while he was occupied. BUT oh no! as it was quiet and I was the only one at that time who wanted a swim I was refused entry, they cited insurance reasons, could they not have a waver to sign for a fully fit able adult. It spoilt my holiday. The toilets and showers were fin,e cleaners in nearly all day overkill, maybe they should clean in morning and put life guard on in afternoon for campers. Have not got priorities right.

We arrived on a lovely day, the staff were very helpful and cheerful. The little shop had a good supply of goods. Also there was an area at the back of the shop that had all the brochures for visiting local areas. The toilet and showers were very clean but they were down a slope, which, I as a disabled walker was unable to venture down unless I had someone with me.

The site was very clean, there weren't many units but it was early in the season.

The only thing that was disappointing was that the swimming pool was closed so was the little cafe, they didn't open till whit bank holiday.

Being we were quite away from anywhere it would have been nice to have had the Cafe open.

Had a fantastic time.

Staff really helpful. The kid's loved the animals especially the goats. Lots of space for kids to play and run around.

Could have more outside play activities. But not busy so adequate

Small shop had emergency supplies.

Pool tired but adequate and not busy.

Nice and close to st austell but far enough out to be in nice countryside

Not impressed with the hard standing all are on a slope, the awning would not fit properly could not peg down close to the caravan, to close to a kerb, trees above made the roof a mess with sap. First time had to use four jack pads on front legs to level up, The staff are very good, customers are looked after, Fishing was very poor the fortnight we were there, The new owners are trying to get it right and are working at it, the shop is basic and expensive but will get you by, Two supermarkets in town, Asda and Tesco, Would I go back again (NO) My final gripe is that people with televisions/radios in awnings/tents should realize that the volume they listen at can be heard six and a half meters away at the same volume, As the seasonal one next to us did, I think the site will get better but will take a while, overall the site is worth going to, but not for us, You can only try it and form your own view, One last thing to the site, you need to fence in the water outlets on the banks as someone slipped and the water butt hit my friends awning and would have hit the child sleeping in there, lucky shes was not there, The fortnight we were there no attempt was made to rectify this DANGER. After it was reported.

First visit to this site with five adults and four children aged between 2 and 9 years old. We were pitched in the bluebell field which is adjacent to the children's play area. The pitch was a little sloped but drained well as a result on the one day we had torrential rain. The playground was handy for us and good for all the kids that were with us. The toilet/shower/pan wash facilities were very near and always clean. Could get busy but never had to wait too long for a free shower cubicle. My only criticism is that some of the showers were a bit weedy in terms of flow, and some of the female members of the group reported that the motion activated lights were faulty in their shower block, plunging them into darkness mid-shower! To be fair though the site owners knew about it and put signs up mid week warning about it. The temperature of the showers tended to fluctuate sometimes to very hot - something to be mindful of if you have young children with you. The outdoor pool was great although the biting insects that happened to be lurking around the pool on the day we went were less than welcome - quite a few horseflies at the site to be honest but that might down to the time of year, sunny weather and the nearby fishing lakes. The staff were all great at the site and the shop was well stocked and reasonably priced. The animal feeding time was a nice touch as was the evening film for the kids in the play barn. There is also a decent room for other kids to hang out and free wifi for those that can't tear themselves away from Facebook for a few days! Site is well placed with a supermarket within five miles and some great attractions and lovely beaches nearby. Would definitely go again and recommend it to others
