Lovely site at is handy for any part of Cornwall. Shower block is kept spotlessly clean. As an adult only site that is supposed to be quiet we were very disappointed when a party carried on until 1am and would have probably continued longer if we hadn't gone out and said something. The following night another party at another caravan. The owners told us they had told them to keep the noise down, especially after 10pm, but they didn't monitor it as they go to bed early. We ended up leaving early but a month later we are still waiting for a refund on the time we didn't stay. Yes it was our choice to leave, but don't doubt for one minute that the pitch would remain vacant as lots of people called in ad hoc.

We stayed at The Meadows for twelve days, our little named pitch was beside the hens and I enjoyed chatting to them most days,

The visiting catering vans was a great idea, but the cold evening air made being sociable difficult!

Fire pits, BBQ hire and fairy lights make this one of the prettiest sites I have stayed at.

Clean, adjustable showers in wet rooms was also a lovely facility.

We will certainly be back.

We have just returned from a wonderful 12 night stay at The Meadows in our tourer. We had holidayed here in 2014 and enjoyed the site and area so much, we decided to return this year.

In 2014 we only used our car twice all holiday, as there is so much to do within easy walking, cycling and bus distance ; Heligan, Eden, Mevagissey and Pentewan beach. This year we travelled a bit further afield - St Mawes is gorgeous, try the park and boat for Falmouth and the Camel Trail bike ride with a vineyard pitstop !

Site owners, the lovely John and Lynne, work incredibly hard to keep the site immaculately clean whilst remaining friendly and helpful - they are a great source of local information and recommendation. There is a relaxed, sociable atmosphere helped along by the visiting cocktails and pop up food, we tried the pizzas and breakfasts - fantastic - and it would have been rude not to have a cocktail or two (or three !) Firepits can be ordered and are delivered ready for evenings of star gazing.

The pitches to the left of the site are a cycle track away from a road so there is some traffic noise during the day, this side also benefitted from the evening sun. The opposite side pitches were sunnier in the mornings and quieter during the day being further from the road. The tents can choose to be on a lawn area or in spaces mown into a wild meadow at the end of the site.

The shower rooms are large wetrooms - I never had to wait for a shower, but did choose not to go at peak times. There is a washer and drier available for hire.

I think that John and Lynne have struck a really good balance, offering a relaxing, bunting festooned site with modern services and lots of thoughtful extras, we would highly recommend them and hope to visit again in a couple of years - thanks again for a great holiday, Jayne and Mark ☺

Had a lovely few days at The Meadows at the beginning of August.

Very friendly and welcoming, Large plots, Shower block is very clean, if I had to find fault it would be I would prefer if there were separate blocks for male and females.

We have 3 dogs and although there is no exercise area it's not a problem as there are walks all around and as there are no children about it's not so strict to keep them on a lead even though it is advised. There's a wifi area which is handy as we didn't have a signal on our phones.

We would definitely return to the Meadows and would recommend to anyone who seeks a peaceful child free, dog friendly site

I have never written a review before (good nor bad). After coming to this campsite I felt compelled to write one.

For my husband & I Lynn truly made our holiday a great experience. We're keen walkers & she recommended some fantastic walks to us. But it was more than just that. She remembered where we had been everyday & asked about it. She's very enthusiastic.

The toilets & showers are immaculate.

The 'pop up' food & drinks are a brilliant idea, which we've never seen before.

The pub serves great food & is only about 1mile away (off road, on a cycle track).

The BBQ hire is great (you don't have to clean it!)

You can hear the road, but it didn't bother us much.

I can't recommend this campsite enough, you can tell the owners do everything themselves & take great pride in it.

This campsite is magical! No other campsite we've been to in 16 years has come close to the atmosphere created by the incredibly hard working Lynn and John. This couple run their site virtually single handed for 5 months every year yet the shower block is immaculate, the bins are never full, but they always have time for a chat and appear laid back and relaxed. Harvey, head of security is a friendly dog too, in spite of his home being invaded by many other canine friends. The deck area is so attractively laid out with bunting and comfortable seating that it becomes a hub for people to gather and socialise as well as visiting it to connect to wifi!

As with the other reviews, there are the same niggles: the amount of showers is inadequate for a full campsite, especially given the number of tents and camper vans. I had to queue on 4 of my 8 mornings, something I haven't done for several years. The showers are on a timed push button and the water is too hot. There IS traffic noise but we soon got used to it, in spite of being close to the road and by a particularly sparse part of the hedge.

TV reception was virtually non-existent on our pitch and we didn't take a radio as we'd got so used to being able to get radio channels on the TV. But this liberated us and turned us into proper campers, relying on reading newspapers, walking in the evening to a lovely pub or playing cards.

The visiting fish and chip and pizza vans were good as was Anna's cocktail bar. The added touch of a circle of deck chairs close to the food vans meant that visitors stayed and chatted whilst they ate rather than take the food back to their pitches.

From a tourist perspective this site is perfect: safe dog walks to Pentewan, Heligan and Mevagissey, easy road links to the Roseland Peninsula, Fowey and the North Cornwall coast. We went to many of the places suggested on The Meadows website and none disappointed.

Visit the website - if you like it's style, you'll love the ambiance of the whole place
