Posted by SJ, London, Mar’17. My sister and I stayed in a wooden lodge on the site and was bowled over with the friendliness of our hosts, the provisions both inside and out and the relaxing setting. We had all the luxuries of a holiday cottage but for a much better price. I couldn’t fault the place one bit. The location is great being equidistant from either the north or the south coast. Not in the main hubbub of some of the main tourist spots so really felt like we managed to get away from it all.
Posted by Anna B, Exeter, UK. We recently visited this site with our two children. It is a really pretty spot, in a quiet location and very peaceful. We were in a campervan and tucked away in a private spot…. lovely bacon available from the site shop!
Posted by Mature Couple on PitchUp, May 2015. Great location and good value for money. Perfect for exploring the Camel Trail on bikes. We cycled to the Camel Valley winery which is well worth a visit and the following day we cycled into Padstow. Great weekend and would definitely go back.
Posted by Jade G, London. Wonderful service, beautiful place. The book provided in the wigwam with lots of local information was so helpful. Absolutely beautiful surroundings. A visit to Polzeath beach is recommended. Will be back again soon.
Posted by Wendy W, Buckingham, UK. This is one of the best outdoor places I’ve stayed, The Cabin was amazing and we had a fab time, The owners are so friendly and welcome you with a smile, which is quite rare nowadays. Everybody should stay here!!!
Posted by Memells, Penzance, UK. Fantastic adventure for my crew, snug, glamping. Perfect. …if anything we had taken to much bedding. You have a kettle, a microwave and a fridge to help you cater for yourselves. We took a camp stove to have a fry up, we used the table outside. Sausages from the shop are their own and well worth the price. Daughters loved the site. Car could be parked close to, which was handy. We will return.
Posted by Young Couple on PitchUp, Jul 2014. The best campsite I’ve stayed at. Great facilities set in a quiet, woodland atmosphere.
The Wigwam was fun and exciting and fully kitted out. Great to sit outside with a bbq on a summer evening using the decking and benches. The owners were lovely and went to great effort to help us.
Posted by boatscrub, Southampton. “Fanastic place, Fanastic time – have rebooked for next year” What a lovely place Ruthern Valley is, we had a lodge over October half term, which was very clean and comfortable. It was a great base for getting out both to the beach and to the Eden project. We all particularly enjoyed our time cycling on the Camel Trail, which is a very close and easy ride away. The site and area are abundant with wildlife, the children loved running around in the woods and playarea. Looking forward to returning this year!
Posted by ‘with friends’ on PitchUp, Jun 2014. The wigwam we stayed in was clean, functional and well-maintained. Shower and toilet facilities were clean and simple. Owners were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone who likes the idea of camping surrounded by nature without any nearby pubs, clubs or noisy places.
Posted by Superbee, South London. Andrew and Nicola were great and nothing was too much trouble. We never experienced a queue for any of the three showers, or the washing up facilities. The pitches were sizeable and well spaced. We would definitely recommend this camp site to others.
Posted by A Flintoff on Google+. This place is an absolute gem and is perfect for families. The main camping field doesn’t allow cars on so you can let toddlers run around without worrying about them getting ran over. There are paths through the onsite woods and a park with a football pitch for older kids. There is no club house so you can have an early night without being waken, or you can sit under the stars and enjoy your evening without hearing the noises you get on larger campsites. The toilet and shower blocks are clean, and looked recently refurbished. The on site shop sells local produce and is well stocked. This place allows you to see some of rural Cornwall, while being central to all of the main attractions. There’s a real sense of community when staying here, maybe due to the size of the site and the type of people it attracts, but probably also to do with the overall environment and atmosphere the owners have created. Then there’s the price, I had to check the bill a few times to make sure we’d booked for 2 weeks. This place is really good value for money. If we come back to Cornwall, we won’t be camping anywhere else.
