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.  John, Lynn, Camp Dog Harvey &  “the girls” (our chucks) look forward to giving you a warm welcome here at The Meadows Campsite, Pentewan, Cornwall.

Please note that we are an “adults only” campsite – sorry kids!
