River Valley Holiday Park is on the edge of the Kings Wood, located just two miles from the beach. Ideally-situated in mid-Cornwall, this is a peaceful holiday park next to the River Winnick and in walking distance of Mevagissey. Within easy reach of the laid back ambiance onsite you will find some of Cornwall’s gems, including rugged coastal scenery, the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the historic Charlestown harbour.

The park offers modern holiday homes for hire and pride themselves on being a quiet family holiday park. Guests can enjoy the facilities including free use of the indoor swimming pool, shower, toilets, dishwashing block, internet room, games room, children's play area, pets' paddock and laundry room.

As well as immaculate facilities, we keep a library of books, provide irons in the laundry, and have a family bathroom with a bath on site. There is also a small shop at the site entrance and staff are available in the reception to help and assist guests. Wifi is available across the park and can be accessed by purchasing vouchers from reception for a small extra fee.
