Caravans and Camp Sites in St Austell, Cornwall
Caravan and camping holidays have come a long way in recent years! A little preparation can make them an economical holiday to please the parents and an adventure to please the kids.
Broad Meadow House
Broad Meadow House Campsite lies yards from the historic port of Charlestown on the South Cornwall coast, near St. Austell. Highly regarded by those 'in the know' and recently reviewed in the Daily Telegraph, the campsite is small but beautifully formed. The pair of tiny fields have stunning views out to sea and along the coast towards Black Head.
Broad Meadow has two geese, a ‘posh shed’, three permanent tents and plenty of space for people who’d rather bring their own. Since the owners limit the number of campers on site to a mere dozen, you get the distinct feeling of being one of an incredibly privileged few. This is especially true if you order a delicious breakfast basket (including freshly made smoothie) to be brought to your tent in the morning.
Open May to September (weather dependent).
