Directions to the right place:

Siblyback lies beteen the A30 and the A38 just out of Liskeard. From the M5, take the A30 and keep going past Launceston. As you go past the small village of Bolventor, look for the turning left with drops down towards the A38. The road takes you past Siblyback before you then double back on yourself and head back up to the entrance to the reservoir.

B&B's / campsites

Camping is available at the reservoir, however no caravans are allowed. Now seems to be mainly used by campervanners on sloping site at waters edge - lovely spot. Don't see many tents pitched. Good facilities, hot showers and nice cafe. (Mark Hayward, 8/2005)

Pubs and eateries

Elliot Arms (aka the Square & Compass) in Tregadillett - just south west of Launceston,is well worth the stop for an interesting pub (clocks all over the place) as well as excellent food and reasonable beer. It's signposted from the junction where the A395 leaves the A30.

It is also worth stopping in on your way home to allow the rest of the Cornwall holiday traffic to make their way back long before you do and ensure a hassle free trip along the M5.
