What a find! The site I

Laid back and back to PROPER camping. The weather was not great but didn't spoil the enjoyment for us. Facilities were always clean and way above average! The owners are lovely and helpful and the pop up bar, breakfasts etc are a real bonus. The one down side is we don't live nearer, so can't come as often as we would like! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED *******

Visited this site after reading the reviews and I must say I agree with them, the owners greeted us and showed us to our pitch which was plenty large enough for our Outwell Montana 6 tent. The site owners Lynn and John were lovely people, always on hand to answer any questions and were always happy to help. The campsite was very nice and quiet and the toilet block was always clean, I say block because the male and female toilet/shower facilities were in the same block which took a bit of getting used to but was ok. The fish and chip van on a Monday and the pizza van and cocktail van on Tuesday was a nice touch and the food and cocktails were very good. There was plenty to see and do in the area with the Eden Project only a short distance away, had a really nice meal at the Polgooth Inn which was only a short drive away from the campsite, although the drive along the narrow road to get there was an interesting one. All in all a very nice site and a great base to explore St Austell and the rest of Cornwall. There's also an Asda and a Tesco Store not too far away for those needing provisions. I would definitely recommend this site to others and would visit it again.

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.

Great campsite. Very well managed by two very friendly and accommodating people, Lynn and John, and of course Harvey the guard dog(who is a big softy!).

Excellent very clean facilities.

Good to have a Fish and Chip van, a Pizza, Burger, and a Cocktail van attending the site.

Within a reasonable and a pretty walking distance to Heligan.

Hope to return next year.

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.
