Welcome to The Meadows

Campsite, Pentewan, (near Mevagissey) St Austell, South Cornwall.  A small adult only campsite, and dog friendly too


For those of you who don’t already know, John, Camp Dog Harvey and I (Lynn) are departing The Meadows after a fantastic 5 years here.  We are off to start a new adventure up north, well Goathland, North Yorkshire to be precise, aka Aidensfield!

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of you who have passed through the camp gates during our time here.  Some of our guests have visited us from our very first year, and watched the campsite develop.  It is guests who create the wonderful happy atmosphere that The Meadows is known for.

Your new hosts from Tuesday 12 September are Michael & Donna Heaslip and we wish Michael and Donna all the very best.  Keep your eye on the website as Michael and Donna will be updating you with their plans for the campsite.  For those arriving this month, it is “campsite” business as usual and your new hosts look forward to welcoming you.  The last night of the 2017 Season will be 30th September.  Fingers crossed, the Indian Summer is just around the Corner. 

To book, please continue to use the contact form, and also the existing office number.




Your traditional and relaxing UK Cornish Caravan and Camping holiday starts here. If you like to holiday on a small, natural campsite close to the beach and other attractions, you will enjoy our friendly and individual campsite.

The Meadows Campsite is close to Pentewan Sands, Mevagissey, Charlestown and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The Meadows is in a sheltered, sunny spot, and we are “quirky”.DSC_0439

The campsite team work very hard to attract wildlife, and so you may be lucky to see deer, owls, woodpeckers, or even a kingfisher during your stay. Otters have also been spotted in the valley.

We have both electric hook up pitches (23) and “proper camping” pitches, to include secluded camping pitches in our beautiful wild flower meadow.

IMG_7210We cater for Campervans, tents,  caravans and motorhomes on our small and friendly site, as well as those holiday makers arriving by cycle, or on foot.  Well behaved dogs are most welcome, and camp fires are encouraged.  If you want to camp hassle free, then please see our caravans “Lottie” Lottie and “Mabel” who are “vintage”, beautiful, and available for rental for a special stay.

Our campsite adjoins the beautiful Pentewan Valley Cycle Trail.  (Part of the Coast to Clay Trail- cyclists). Pentewan Sands, Mevagissey, Charlestown and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are all within walking/cycling distance, making car free days out very easy. We are also very close to one of the UK’s most visited attractions, the Eden Project, and so this is an ideal base for exploring this fantastic area of  South Cornwall, UK. The trail links up with the SWCP (walkers) and so we are a great base for a Cornish walking holiday.

DSC_6727DSC_6544The Meadows Team reward those arriving on foot, or cycle with a 25% discount! In respect of public transport links, the local bus runs from outside the gates. We are 3 miles from St Austell Train & Bus Station. There are also some local ferries between harbour towns and villages, for a fun way to get around.

Please do come and stay with us to enjoy Cornwall. Mike, Donna, Jazmine, Louella and Fraser look forward to giving you a warm welcome here at The Meadows Campsite, Pentewan, Cornwall.

Please note that we are an “adults only” campsite however please bare in mind our three children, Jazmine, Louella and Fraser may be seen helping around the campsite.
