What a gem this site is, beautiful location, immaculate site, great facilities and the friendliest owners you will meet anywhere.

The site is flat and well sheltered, great size pitches on well kept grass, toilet block is so user friendly with individual wet rooms. Plenty of hot water to showers and wash up. Great for getting out and about without a car as the bus stop is just yards away. Plenty of good walks or cycle rides very close to site.

This is the second year I have visited this site, and I just gets better and better.

Please don't telł too many campers just how good this small but beautiful site is, otherwise I may not get in next year. Only kidding, the young enthusiastic owners deserve to be supported with a full site every week.

What a lovely little gem of a site, I've never been more welcomed by the owners John and Lynn. As soon as you arrive you are shown around and given your pitch. We intended to stay for four weeks but were so relaxed there that we ended staying a few more nights! The toilet block is kept immaculate and the disabled shower has loads of room to accommodate those of us who require to use it. John and Lynn are a lovely couple and were full of knowledge of the surrounding area. We were there with our two border collies Skye and Breeze and they met lots of like minded friends while we were there. We had a bit of a problem finding some dog friendly beaches to start with but Lynnn sorted us out and kept us right. Anyone visiting can't go till you've tried John's full monty breakfast baguette it'll set you up for a week! The site is perfectly located and is so peaceful and only a short walk along the river to the local pub. Although I think one of the highlights of my holiday is when I caught a 50lb five foot blue shark of the coast of Falmouth, Lynn told my wife that I was full of myself. Well I had the bragging rights and the photo's to prove it lol. There is a wood fired pizza van that came once a week also not to miss is the VW bar serving out the Mohito and the the Little tea van that would just appear serving beautiful Cornish cream teas. This is not a site to overlook and it will be the only place we stay when in Cornwall!

We stayed for 4 nights at this lovely little site and would have liked to have stayed a little longer.

I would agree with the other reviewers about the road noise and initially I was a little dismayed at being so close to the road, however after a while it really does become unnoticeable and is very quiet at night-time. I also think that the the toilet emptying station could really do with changing with the addition of some screening and a hose.

For us they were the only 2 niggles and the rest of the campsite's benefits far outweighs the niggles.

Breakfast baguettes in the morning either on the terrace or delivered to you pitch were brilliant, the mobile pizza kitchen is a novel and most welcome feature. And my favourite thing of all - the campfires! What a treat to have a firepit brought to you and set up ready to be lit with ample wood supplied to last for many hours. We did have a slight problem with the disabled bathroom lock on our first day, but this was immediately rectified by John.

Finally a mention of the toilet block - absolutely spotless at all times and each shower is contained within its own wet room with dedicated sink and WC - brilliant and so very convenient.

We would definitely return to this site and stay longer next time. John and Lynn were brilliant, knowledge and friendly and we wish them every success.

Just returned from a wonderful week at The Meadows. John and Lynn have worked so hard to create a relaxing camp site. Yes the road noise is there and made us less likely to just sit and relax on site during the day but most of the time you didn't really notice it. The shower block was kept spotlessly clean, always smelt fresh and there was always plenty of hot water. The pizza van on a Tuesday was a real bonus and the pizzas delicious, although hubby still not convinced by banana and chocolate! The breakfast baguettes also a great idea and a very filling start to the day. Unfortunately we never got to try any cakes. We are keen walkers and it was great to be able to do so many rambles straight from our tent. The walk from Pentewan to Charlestown on the South coast path and back along the cycle path was exhilarating - my calves are still feeling all those steps. Heligan, The Eden project and Lanhydrock house were all thoroughly enjoyable days out. We would also highly recommend the Shipwreck and Heritage centre in Charlestown. Also as others have said, the Polgooth Inn was excellent and the service impressive, given the numbers of people there. We loved our spot down by the stream, watching all the birds in the trees as we ate our breakfast. It was our first stay at an adult only campsite and on the whole we felt that the friendly atmosphere among the campers that you get with families around was missing, but maybe that's just us. We would recommend the site and wish John and Lynn every success in the future.

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.
