All in all a wonderful site which is very close to the cycle trail for either Pentewan, St. Austell or Mevagissey (Mevagissey trail very steep both ways). The owners were very busy and could not do enough to make sure that everybody had a pleasant stay. The evening visit of the outside catering van was a plus and the wood fire cooked pizzas delivered to our table made our evening! There is an issue with traffic noise but not enough to spoil our stay and it stops quite early at night. Everyone is different but we were not happy with the arrangement of the toilet block in that there are no dedicated male/female entrances. The toilet emptying station is not screened or very well sited and should be provided with a hose for washing out the cassette. For the size of the site I worry about whether the toilet/shower block, albeit spotless and new, is adequate during busy times. Washing up facilities are positioned directly under toilet windows------not the best of ideas! Owners are only in their second season and I'm sure that they will pick up on these points. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Decided to stay here because of the mostly excellent reviews on here.

Overall the campsite is good. It is not too large, has friendly owners, nice and clean loos and there is good walking and cycling nearby.

I like the idea of the communal deck area with free wifi and the hiring of braziers etc.

I was disappointed by the lack of privacy to pitches (there is none) and some pitches were a little small and close together.

Also the road noise as mentioned before, is a pain. You want to feel like you are in a quiet, country meadow but you have constant road noise until late.

If you are sited on the pitches furthest away from the road, you lose the sun early. So you need to decide what is more important to you and request this at time of booking.

The camping meadow for tents is a lovely idea. I can imagine anyone staying there would give the site 10 out of 10 as you can have lots of space and are further from the road. This campsite is not really suitable for big motorhomes and we felt dwarfed by the one sited next to us.

Good luck to the owners. They are working hard and it is obviously a very popular site, but the lack of privacy and road noise means it is not for me.

Love love love this site. Have stayed in a few along this stretch of road and this is easily my favourite. It is friendly immaculately clean and tidy. The shower block is amazing. The owners work so hard and this shows. Great spot for dog walking and bike rides. Will only be using this site for this area.

I like the idea of an adult only site. Was very relaxed, welcoming and dog friendly. Flat and convenient for walking and traffic-free trails. Bordered by a stream and surrounded by trees. Sites were well laid out. Lovely washrooms / showers. We were charged 20 for a one night stay, although 17 is quoted on the web site. I think that this is a tad expensive and a bit of a cheek to advertise 'free showers' as one of its selling points. The site is near a busy road which disturbed us during the night although other reviewers have commented that you can get used to it if you stay for an extended period. A good option rather than the somewhat commercialised sites that are its neighbours

Just had an amazing 10 days at The Meadows. Our first time, but won't be our last!

Friendly, quiet, and SPOTLESS! John and Lynn couldn't do enough, providing a welcome map of things to do etc on arrival. Dog friendly and tasty baguettes. Clean showers and loos no matter what time of day. What more can you ask for?

From butterflies, dragonflies and birds around us in the day with buzzards overhead to pheasants and owls on an starry evening as we sat around a firepit.

With John's baguettes in a morning and speciality nights you can even get away from cooking!

A short distance from pretty fishing villages and great musems to gardens and wonderful dog friendly beaches. A walk along the river to lovely pubs with great meals. Its got everything for that quiet getaway you are looking for, without the kids.

This is a small friendly site with helpful owners. The facilities were very good and the site was well tended. The cycle path can be reached directly from the site and we rode to Heligan, very easy, and Mevagissey, a bit more challenging. The nearest pub is also along the cycle path, an easy walk. We enjoyed the Pizza evening.

Unfortunately, the site is close to a very busy road and the noise from the constant traffic was very intrusive. I just didn't feel the peace of the country side and even tried ear plugs one morning. The site is surrounded by trees so there is no view either. Because of the road noise we would not return to this site.
