“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We stayed here in July for 4 nights in one of the lodges. Everything about the site was very good. The lodge was clean, well equipped and had one of the best showers I have come across! Nice and central to most attractions, we would recommend anyone to stay here.

Stayed at Ruthern Valley Holidays for two nights in July 2014. The site is superbly maintained and our pitch was tucked away at the back so it was well away from the kids play area and nice and quiet! It's a short walk (past the pigs, sheep and chickens!) to Grogley woods for a walk or bike ride, and a ten minute drive to the bike centres at Bodmin. After a day on the bikes the excellent showers were well needed! Will definitely return.

Thank you for your kind comments, cycling has really taken off this year with the new trails at Lanhydrock, downhill at Grogley and the Camel Trail being so close. We now rent bikes so you will not have to go into town and get them now!
We look forward to seeing you again.

stayed 2 nights in a hired campervan. The campsite was perfect. Everything you could ask for, well thought out lay out, clean and well looked after but not too clinical. Great location for visiting North or South Cornwall.

The setting and location is great and the toilet resources were some of the best I have seen for campsites. The wigwam we stayed in was great and has a range of facilities.


They have a shop on site which would can get a wide range of produce. I felt a tad awkward going as it was closed and it's in a family home, and I just didn't want to interrupt especially on Sunday, however they were very accommodating.

A last minute booking with NO regrets. This place screams value for money. - perfectly situated for either coastline, the surroundings at Ruthern Valley are ideal for a get away from it all break. The log cabin we stayed in had everything we needed - it was clean, well equpped with good linen and comfy beds. Andrew and Nicola the owners were friendly and helpful and run a brilliant site. The place is great for bird lovers and the pigs, sheep and chicken are a lovely part of the environment. I would not hesitate to return !

Mini midweek break here was great! We stayed in a bungalow for four nights and really didn't want to leave. The bungalow was beautifully clean, if what dated and had everything we needed. The hosts really went the extra mile to make our stay brilliant and the site is stunning. It is superbly maintained and beautiful flowers and trees. We checked out the campsite facilities which looked first class, we may even return in our tent.

Bodmin is a slightly unusual place however has the usual supermarkets etc. We have fab days at the beach which were only approximately 20 minutes drive away.

We would highly recommend, thanks for a fab stay and enjoy x

We stayed in a Lodge here last week. The site was lovely, in a quite and tranquil spot. The lodge itself was well equipped. The kitchen had loads of cooking utensils to prepare a good meal in. Bathroom just fine. Quite a good shower considering it's location.
The lodge decor and furniture is a bit tired in places, but for us this wasn't an issue.
We booked a travel cot for our 6month old, which was perfectly adequate.

I have marked my rating down one as the double bed mattress was awful. You could feel all the springs. Very uncomfortable. My wife didn't sleep well on it. I ached first-thing each morning, but nothing a hot shower wouldn't cure. I just hope the owner reads this so they can rectify it as this was the ONLY issue we found - not that we were looking for any!

Locally there are loads of things to see and do. We could only stay 4 nights this time but I'd like to return and visit other places nearby, and when I do I hope this place available again.
