Me & my husband stayed at Broad Meadow for 8 days a the beginning of July 2014, and to sum up this campsite: Stunning just amazingly STUNNING...if you want a chilled out, peaceful, totally relaxed holiday then this is the place to be (altho I do agree with one of the other reviewers....you really don't want anyone else to know about it because you want to keep it all for yourself!!!).
Debs & Neil are the most genuine, friendly and most hospitable people I think we have ever come across - seriously!!
Before I begin I just wanted to dispel a few concerns of previous writers.....there are NOT 12 pitches on the site (five I believe including the static...which looks awesome and very inviting!)...we experienced a minute or two (on occasion depending on when we went!) waiting for the shower or the loo, which is no longer than anywhere else to be honest...and that was with a full compliment of campers (total four tents) !! And we LOVED not having cars on the campsite, no noisy engines being started up each day, no fumes.....brilliant!!!
To add to other rave reviews, the personal touches to the campsite are unbelievable, and totally different to anywhere else we have stayed. The fridge and freezer, the gratis ice blocks whilst yours are chilling, the aloe vera (for sunburn) the cloths and washing up liquid in case you'd forgotten your own (to mention just a few!)......its these little things that add up to a lot...ie Debs & Neil have catered for everyone and the "home comforts" they provide go a long way....
Charlestown: make sure you visit the Shipwreck and Heritage Museum....looks small from the outside but it is deceiving (!) and contains some fascinating information & artefacts about the town and wrecks of by gone years!
Costal walks: again stunning, the views are amazing....and ask Debs or Neil for the best places to go too!!
Eating: Amazing portions where ever you ate in the village & decent prices too. Also check out the local bakers and butchers (ignore the supermarkets, absolutely no comparison), at the butchers you can get eggs, salad, milk, pasties (so yummy too!!) amongst a host of other things, and such good quality of meats too, the bakers (on the same parade of shops) not only have the most delicious bread & rolls, but also make up filled rolls, which are just amazing value. Think LOCAL and you wont go wrong!!!!
of an evening, stroll down to the harbour, and watch the world go by...you can't get much better than this.....BRILLIANT!!
