Reviewer: Rosieanne 1 review from this member

I read many reviews before booking a week on this site. It was exactly as expected. Although next to a busy road the noise did not bother us. We camped on the river side of the site so had the benefit of early morning sun. The owners are welcoming and very helpful, answering questions and giving advice on places to go and dog friendly beaches. The site is very well maintained even after all the rain. The showers and toilets are kept immaculately clean, always stocked with hand wash, hand towels and loo roll. A freezer is available for visitors to use.

The site provides a hook up if required and also camping in the more natural environment surrounded by wild flowers. If a hook up is required you are allocated a pitch and parking space for the car. My only slightly negative comment would be that the pitches are quite close together so you can hear conversations next door.

The pop up cocktail caravan is a great idea, you get to know fellow campers over a few drinks then slowly meander to bed. The pizza pop up provided great quality pizzas in a monsoon like down pour!

The Cornish Maid breakfasts are also a great idea if you don't want to cook anything. Porridge to sausage and bacon sandwiches prepared on site.

Hiring a wood burner or bbq is such a great idea, all the benefits and no mess to clear up in the morning.

An easy walk to the Lost Gardens of Heligan is highly recommended for a day out, and pop into the farm shop opposite to buy excellent steaks for that evenings bbq.

The only trip out we couldn't do was the ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey due to poor weather, which was a bit disappointing. Instead we went to Polkerris and Polperro which are both well worth visiting.

We have camped on both small and large sites before but not adult only. I can thoroughly recommend it; no kids running around at all hours. Dogs welcomed and all that were there at the same time as us were all very well behaved.

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.
