To me a 7/10 site is a good score. To get a 10 I want welcome cocktails and dancing girls. But this site gets a 9.

The service and relaxed atmosphere are what make it and it's respected. It's the little things like getting your fire pit delivered and its mAde up ready to light and cleaned in the morning. Freezer block and phone charging free services. Toilets nice and clean and grass well tended. Pluse the park and pitch and varied locations to pitch with ample room in the wild camping.

The pizza/burger/cocktail vans that come during the week are fab. Only tried the pizza but one of the best we've had. The ship inn is great for a pint, food is simple but good value. The polegarth (spelling not checked) tries a bit too hard but still ok if you fancy the walk. The loft in st Ives was a great find on this trip.

Don't get me wrong the chilled atmosphere and the need to wheel your camping equipment from your car is not every bodies cup of tea, although they do have the more traditional pitches too.

Location is really central for exploring, on the door step dog walk and a nice walks to several pubs.

Small down side was the road noise and the wild camping area did hold the water a little and the paths through the long grass were narrow so when it rained trousers got wet.

Perhaps one more set of hooks in the showers, but the cubical a were large and great gone to get your cloths soaked.

I'm looking for faults here. There aren't many with thus site and apart from the weather this has probably been one of the best weeks camping we've had. Thanks Lynn & John.

Just come back from a wonderful stay at The Meadows and I would recommend the site to anyone who wants a relaxing time in peaceful surroundings. The site is located just of the main road from St Austell to Mevagissy but I can honestly say that this did not bother us in the slightest.

John and Lynn are lovely and keep the site wonderfully clean. They are always around if you have any queries but are not intrusive. We made full use of the shower block and laundry facilities and could not fault them.

The location of the site makes it easy to get around whether it be by foot, bike, bus or car and I will definitely be making a return visit.

This is a lovely, relaxed and relaxing, friendly site – one of the best we've stayed at – in a great location. The site is well kept, but with a natural feel, especially in the longer-grassed tent area, and the sight and smell of woodsmoke rising from the campfies in the evenings makes for a lovely atmosphere. Owners Lynn and John make you feel welcome and at home and are always around, without being overbearing in the slightest. Their information and advice about the area, tips on eating places and how to get about is really helpful. The facilities are absolutely spotless and the individual ensuite wetrooms, along with separate toilets, were never too busy while we were there, even though the campsite was full.

Location is good – we left our van on the site and walked to Mevagissey, The Lost Gardens of Heligan (wonderful) and Pentewan Sands, and took the bus (which stops just outside the campsite) to Charlestown. The excellent Polgooth Inn is about a 40-minute walk away, and well worth the trek. Free WiFi is available on the deck outside Lynn and John's house, if you need to get online.

A beautiful, outsandingly good small site. We thoroughly enjoyed it here and would love to return.

Absolutely fabulous site and owners. John and Lynn couldn't do enough for you. The facilities are absolutely spot on. The location is great and you can walk to most places. If you are looking for a relaxed quirky site then this is it. We were lucky enough to sample the cocktail bar on two separate occasions, the pizza oven and the fish and chip van which were all totally awesome. We will definitely be returning next year and have recommended it to friends who have booked for August this year. I'm just gutted I have no holiday left for this year to go again! Thanks for an amazing stay!

The Meadows is a great site and I would recommend it to anyone.

The site is divided into two parts. The northern half is made up of standard pitches, all clearly marked and with plenty of room for large tents or caravans. The southern half is the interesting bit, though, since that is a large meadow filled with tall grasses and flowers. The meadow has mowed-out rounded pitches for the tents, with pathways cut to let you get from pitch to pitch. Being in the meadow feels great, very relaxed and friendly, especially in the evening with a fire-pit lit and the bats fluttering over head.

We had a few days of (very) heavy rain while we were staying, but the meadow is well drained by a ditch cut round the outside, and even though the turf got quite squelchy at times, moving around was never a problem.

John and Lynn run the site, and are around every day to help with anything you might need. They were both friendly, and clearly enjoy running the site and interacting with the visitors.

You can rent a fire pit or a barbecue on site, which is really convenient. If you rent a fire pit then John will set it up for you, with all the wood you need and a few quick tips about how to get the best results.

The site has regular visits from a pizza oven and a fish and chips van, but best of all is the cocktail van which turns up regularly in the evenings and sells very reasonably priced cocktails to the people on the site. There are much worse ways to spend a summer evening than relaxing outside your tent with a tom collins. Very civilised.

The toilet block is clean and new, with plenty of shower stalls for the size of the site, and a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The site is well placed for all the attractions in that part of Cornwall, which are mostly gardens (you can walk to the gardens of heligan through the woods in about half an hour).

All told, it's very difficult to find anything to criticize about the site. It's adults only, so no good for families, but for everyone else I'd recommend it unreservedly.

What a gorgeous site in a great location.

When we arrived we had a friendly welcome and were shown to our pitch which was on the edge of the meadow. The site is kept in immaculate condition and the showers and toilet block are always very clean with a hairdryer, washing machine and dryer at a reasonable price to use.

On the Monday when we arrived a fish and chip van came round which was great and then on Tuesday you could purchase freshly made pizzas from the mobile van which were very yummy.

The meadows is definitely worth camping at and the owners should be very proud of there site.
