Ruthern Valley Holidays: Camping pod in spring

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.

    Very tranquil and found as a last minute necessity as we had to move from our original site in St Ives with a rain soaked tent. Pod was cosy and warm, the facilties were excellent and the welcoming extremely warm. We took a tour round the site at the other options and would definitely recommend and book again!

    Andy was so helpful showing us to our pitch and put us in the perfect quiet spot,
    The facilities were more than we could of wanted (toilets and showers always clean and plenty of them) washing up facilities and even washers and dryers,
    Gorgeous little play area with woodland walks to get to it,
    WiFi was an added bonus, never had any issues with connection.
    Location is perfect for those wanting to explore around Cornwall or even just stay on site. It is simply beautiful

    This was my first camping trip with my son and what a great introduction to the camping life it was for him.
    We can't wait to come back in the future

    We stayed at many campsite during our trip to Cornwall but this has to have been our favourite! Friendly owners, a very well maintained site with clean facilities. Large pitches. Beautiful local walks and a lovely little walk through the wooded area to the play park/shop or alternatively can walk on the road within the site. Short walk to the facilities, washing up area/washing machines/tumble driers etc all on site plus bike hire. A food van also came by on one of our nights and served beautiful home cooked food. Highly recommend this stunning site

    Location, setting of the park, excellent facilities- very clean toilets and showers as well as a well stocked little shop. Great value for money.

    Disliked: 

    We found the staff member (owner?) that we encountered to be lacking interpersonal skills, I find this strange as I see many other reviewers have highly rated the ‘friendly and helpful’ staff and owners, unfortunately, this was not our experience. Sadly, this would prevent us from returning from this otherwise 10/10 park.
    WiFi wasn’t great but very minor matter.
    I would also recommend highlighting to guests the ‘no music policy’, a couple of our neighbours didn’t seem to be aware of this.

From the manager...

I'm sorry you were unhappy with the service. We do our best to ensure reasonable levels of noise because sound carries in our quiet valley and can affect all our guests. All the best, Andrew & Nicky

Local attractions

Cornwall’s countless charms are all within your grasp: moors and tors; fab beaches (both the northern and southern coasts are within 10 miles, and the surfing mecca of Newquay is just a few miles further), the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, traditional castles and mansions like Tintagel and Llanhydrock House, zoos and wildlife centres, theme parks, museums…

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.
