Welcome to The Meadows

Campsite,  Pentewan, (near Mevagissey) St. Austell, Cornwall

Your traditional and relaxing UK Cornish Caravan and Camping holiday starts here. If you like to camp on a small, natural campsite close to the beach and other attractions, then you will enjoy our friendly and individual campsite.  The Meadows Campsite (just for adults)  is particularly close to Pentewan Sands, Mevagissey, Charlestown and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The Meadows is in a sheltered, sunny spot, and we are “quirky”.IMG_7085

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.

IMG_6772We cater for Touring Caravans, Motorhomes/Campervans and Tents 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 (off the ground).  If you want to camp hassle free, then please see our caravans “Lottie”  and “Mabel” who are “vintage” and  available for rental.

Our relaxing, welcoming campsite adjoins the beautiful Pentewan Valley Cycle Trail. 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 National Route 3 (cyclists).

The Meadows Team reward those arriving on foot, or cycle with a 25% discount! In respect of public transport links, the bus runs from outside the gates, and we are 3 miles from St Austell Train Station. There are also some local ferries between harbour towns and villages.

IMG_6785Please do come and stay with us to enjoy Cornwall, and John, Lynn, Camp Dog Harvey & now “the girls” (our chucks) look forward to giving you a warm welcome here at The Meadows Campsite, Pentewan, Cornwall.

As from Easter 2014 we are to be an “adults only” campsite – sorry kids.
