General

  • Friendly site in a tree-filled valley near Bodmin Moor
  • Well-maintained and peaceful park in a wildlife haven
  • Easy drive to both coasts and five minutes' ride to the Camel Trail

Escape with a break to Ruthern Valley Holidays… At this friendly site in a tree-filled valley near Bodmin Moor, the emphasis is on making the most of the natural surroundings – think birds and rabbits rather than bingo nights, and a gently meandering stream instead of the boom of a disco bar.

The site is carefully laid out to offer visitors the maximum space and seclusion possible. Kids will have a blast roaming around the woods building dens and wildlife spotting, chatting to the resident chickens and pigs, and bouncing around the leafy playground area.

Ruthern Valley Holidays also has a licensed shop selling bangers, other local goodies and some essential camping gear. Other amenities include solar-heated showers, toilets, a laundry and washing-up facilities.

    Second time here. Lovely woodland location. Very handy for the Camel trail. Powerful hot showers. Large secluded gravel pitch. Taken a lot of care to ensure CV19 precautions.

    Disliked: 

    Not much. Couldn't get WiFi signal despite being line of site to a transmitter. It is a family site, so bit of noise from kids playing in the evening. Quiet at night though when it matters.

Local attractions

If you want to ride the waves, book your place at the surf school on Polzeath beach for some assistance in getting out onto the water. Sea kayaking, kitesurfing and horse riding are also available nearby.

Cycling deserves a special mention: five minutes on two wheels brings you to the Camel Trail, 16 miles of converted railway track that makes for an great ride through the Camel valley, and links to the Cornish Way for trips further into Cornwall. Bikes can be hired at cycle centres nearby including at Wadebridge, Bodmin and Padstow.

Slake your pedal-induced thirst enroute with wine tasting at the renowned Camel Valley Vineyard, or take a bottle away to wash down some fish and chips from the Rick Stein takeaway in Padstow. This pretty fishing village a short ride away is a fully-fledged foodie destination, with several acclaimed restaurants and takeaways.
