Stayed first weekend of Sept after peak season had just finished. Beautiful weather. Its actually a lovely small site - its website makes it look a lot bigger. Very friendly welcome on arrival - well stocked shop at reception. Really enjoyed staying in the woods, pitches are largely separated and numbered and shaded by trees. You go to sleep listening to owls hooting overhead. The highlight for us was being able to cycle from the site (10 minutes) to the Camel Trail into Padstow. We also went the other way to Bodmin and stopped off at the Borough Arms. Only negatives are that the toilet and shower block is small and a bit basic (only 2 toilets and sinks in each) and because the pitches are allocated, by the end of the season the grass was bare and the ground very hard. In summary this site provided a good 'get away from it all' experience.

We had a pod for just the one night, and we wished we had booked more!

The site is lovely, well tended, very green, lots of mature trees and plants.

Our pod was on its own with loads of space around it, set on the edge of a wooded area, we were not overlooked at all, and plenty of room for the car.

The pod was as expected, just carpeted and with one light, but that was great, no tent to put up !

The shop was small but very well stocked, everyone was welcoming. With some fantastic sausages and bacon, fresh baked baguettes were available in the mornings. Outside the shop is a large fun notice board detailing local events and any special evening the local pubs are putting on, we drove about 10 mins away to find a pub.

The toilets and showers were spotless all the time, with plenty of hot water, and space to put your things, the newer showers had chair, basins and a big mirror in, never had to wait to use either.

The washing up area was light and clean, washing machines available and plugs to charge mobiles etc

We were very sad to leave after one night and wished we had not split our trip amongst other sites.

We have just returned from a lovely week in Ruthern Valley.

The site is beautifully laid out, well-planted, and has a lovely woodland with a small stream that all the children had hours of fun in building dams and having adventures. Remember wellies and lots of spare clothes! We felt completely happy letting our children have freedom to take off and play as the site is quite small and felt very safe.

The facilities were good - very clean and we didn't have to wait to use them, though we were there early in the season and so the site was not full.

The owners and their children were all very friendly, polite and helpful. The shop was well-stocked and had local produce.

It is worth taking bikes as its only about a 10-minute cycle ride to get onto the Camel Trail which is great with the children.

We are probably quite fussy customers. In our 7 years of camping/caravanning as a family we have never found a site that we would return to, but we would definitely return to this one.

Second stay this year, great location, 10 mins from the A30. We enjoyed our previous visit that we came back in order to do some of the attractions that we missed last time.

Good clean facilities and very helpful owners. Good well drained pitch, although forgot to mentioned in previous review that we ruined quite a lot of the standard thin metal tent pegs, although the thicker metal sharp pointed pegs went in a treat.

Would definitely stay again and recommend a gem of a site which even kept our 3 year old amused.

A hidden gem of a site. The owners are very warm and welcoming as soon as we arrived. The shop is small but has everything that you have forgotten to bring. Do try their local meat as the sausages were amazing! Our pitch was lovely as we were a group of two tents and could easily pitch our tents with our gazebo in between. The facilities are basic but very clean. I think that there have been additional showers since some of the comments made below and the only queue was for the newer, more attractive showers. Reasonable washing machine/tumble and two sinks for washing up. A nice friendly, intimate site that is central for some great attractions.

We'll all go back!

Have just come back from a weeks' camping at Ruthern Valley. We had a great week. The site is not too big and the setting is beautiful with lots of trees, plants and wildlife. We also found the pitch sizes very good. The children had a great time playing in the park and the woods (creating a den) and making lots of friends. They also enjoyed feeding the pigs and the chickens. The toilet block was small but was never too busy - queued for about 5 minutes on only one occasion for the shower. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The only negative point would be that some of the pitches are a little bit uneven but this didn't spoil our holiday.
