Yet another great holiday enjoyed at Polruan Holidays. The owners Kevin and Trudie were excellent hosts once again and nothing is too much trouble for them, Kevin even lent us an electric extension this year as we had pitched our tent just a little further away from the plug-in than we would normally be happy with. The tent pitches are large and not too close to your neighbours pitch and this is exactly what we always look for when booking a campsite.

Kevin & Trudie really care about their campers so this is why they have rules and regulations in place but they are all good R & R's and we wouldn't want them to change ANY of them.

The showers, toilets, shop and All their other facilities are faultless. The campsite is exceptionally clean and well cared for.

The downhill walk To Polruan takes about 15 mins but the return uphill can take about 25mins but it's worth it to be returning to such a great campsite that is peaceful and relaxing.

The ferry across to Fowey is a quick and enjoyable ride and there is plenty to look at and do when you Get over there - the pubs/food are good (as in Polruan where there are 2 pubs) shops, ferry rides to other places And plenty of walks to go on. There are also walks from the Polruan's campsite and the Hall Walk is especially good.

My husband John and I can thoroughly recommend this wonderful campsite and it's owners and we have always enjoyed our holidays here - so much so we will be booking again for 2016.

Another lovely, peaceful weekend at Polruan. Made to feel very welcome as always. Saw a dolphin in the river and a cuckoo on the coastpath. Fowey was buzzing with visitors on Saturday. Lots of lovely shops to browse in and buy from. Made use of both ferries which provide an excellent and frequent service. The campsite was looking very smart and tidy with lots of flowers and bird feeders. The facilities are very clean and lots of hot water in the showers. Easy access to plenty of walking for the dog.

Probably the most immaculate site I have ever visited, it is spotless a real credit to the owners.

Free hot showers, washing up facilities, a free library and information room, a decent shop, friendly owners and although no dog walk on site a quick trip over the road and your into fields where they can be let off lead.

Polruan is charming but very very steep you will know about it when you walk back to the site unless you are very fit.

The local bus will pick you up outside the site to take you to Polperro or Looe very reasonable fares too and the bus driver is a great guy.

The only downside is that the back of the campsite backs on to the only road in and out of Polruan so can be a little noisy first thing in the morning and late at night, but I think that's because we were in a trailer tent and I'm a light sleeper not anyone's fault just something to bear in mind when under canvas.

Some people have said there are lots of rules yes there are but it ensures decent behaviour and respect and a nice atmosphere.

We would stay again just away from the back hedge lol

I can only echo the comments of the previous reviewers. This site is fantastic and other campsite owners should take note. There are NO shabby breezeblock loos. NO dirty sinks and 20p payment showers. NO rude unfriendly owners. NO yobbos shouting and yelling.

Pitches are spacious and some are a little sloping but not unreasonably so.

Polruan and Fowey are delightful little ports but very much at the end of the major roads, it takes a long time to get anywhere and the roads are very narrow indeed. The ferry from Bodinnick to Fpwey is fast and efficient and cuts off a long drive. I very much enjoyed using the passenger ferry between Polruan and Fowey and we also took a boat trip to Mevagissey from Fowey.

The hills make this an unsuitable location for the infirm or those with small children. However the views make up for the aching legs!

Stayed for 4 nights at Polruan and wished we'd stayed for more. Not a part of Cornwall I'd visited before and it's really great. I stayed with my partner and we found this a well spaced out site. Excellent value and really good facilities. Pitches are well spaced out and the site has a really friendly feel. The recycling is clearly marked out and shows the owners commitment to making a site as 'green' as possible. A slightly sloping pitch (the site is at the cliff top) was not a problem. Tent easily put up and secured for a mighty storm, shelter from the nearby hedge worked well.

A ten minute walk to Polruan, we went to the Lugger Inn by the quayside, great beer and really fresh seafood. I had 'whale' and chips one night and as it was so good we went back for the mussels. The 20 minute walk back up the hill is quite severe and this maybe wouldn't be a site for children as there are limited play areas and that walk back would cause a few moans.

If you are using this site as a base to get around Cornwall it is at the end of the road and our activities were a bit thwarted due to the roads (single track) back to civilisation. That considered it takes 30 minutes to get to the nearest town unless you're using the car ferry at Fowey. That's my lack of planning as the Coastal path and Polruan/Fowey are really stunning and this is a fantastic place to mess around on boats and have a great hike followed by some great food.

Great little site. Easy walk down into village where there are couple of shops and pubs but it is a much harder walk back up. Also you can catch ferry to Fowey ( and take dogs on board) which is a super small town with loads of nice eating places and a fab local baker. Our motorhome was just below their max allowed length and with the narrow lanes leading in I can see why they have such a limit. Very very clean and well kept facilities block although shower cubicles are very small (no cat swinging ) and they are a little old. Owners very friendly and very helpful. A site I would return to.
