“Best time for a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

This was just the break I hoped for, lovely friendly owners, Steve and Julie. Everything we needed was to hand and the accommodation top class. Everything was immaculate and complemented the tranquil environment beautifully.
The beach is just a 20min drive away or if you fancy horse-riding, you will find that just 10mins walk away.
All and all this was great and I cannot fault anything.
Again, thank you Julie and Steve and we hope to visit again soon, but I fear that when people find out about this little “Gem” we will not get any places.

Friendly reception from Julie and Steve who are on hand nearby with helpful information if you need it. Lovely quiet site and so nice that it's dog friendly. Nice friendly village with dog friendly pub, and post office does lovely food in their little cafe, and take away pizzas too. I thoroughly recommend it.

Have just returned from an enjoyable four-night stay at Rivermead, having visited previously 18 months earlier. For a short trip, we were happy to go back to Rivermead and know what we were getting for our money. Our family of 4 chose to stay in a 6-berth caravan, as we prefer the extra space and not having to make up the sofa each night. The Rivermead caravans are all fairly new and very well maintained. They are clean and well equipped with heaters, TV/DVD, WiFi and clean linen. The site itself is small and intimate, with only 6 vans or so. If you want on-site entertainment or playgrounds for the kids, this site is not for you. But if you want a quiet, well-connected bolthole to explore wider Cornwall or just to potter around Bodmin Moor, Rivermead is the perfect spot. We cycled the Camel Trail and went horse-riding on the Moor this time. Julie and Steve were on hand and helpful when required, but left us to our own devices for the most part (which suited us). There is a pleasant pub in walking distance plus a well-equipped village shop. I have given Rivermead 4 stars out of 5 as it is indeed a 'Very Good' caravan site for its reasonable price. I would expect a more facilities to make it a 5-star 'Excellent' site, but then I would also expect it to cost a lot more money! Well worth a visit.

Booked this late August break very last minute and we were delighted with what we saw. The site is beautifully kept with manicured gardens and absolutely every need catered for. The site is better than the pictures , if that's possible.
Julie and Steve were there to greet us and pointed us in the direction of the shop, the pub, the fields for Charlie to have a run and maps of hundreds of dog friendly beaches.
The caravan was immaculate , very well thought out and equiped, spotlessly clean and the surrounding quiet and calm was a reel tonic.
A real find that we will return to again and again. If you do go, one word of advice... follow their directions not the satnav!

A really nice and quiet place to live in. The host were very helpful and friendly. The chalet offered privacy with a seperate entrance and a seperate patio. The location is a little isolated but gives a feel of village. Would definitely return back!
