River Valley Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 April 2012

We had a 5 day stay at the River Valley Holiday Park.

We recieved a warm welcome and booking the stay was easy.

The Caravan was brilliant. It was spotlessly clean and there was a lovely touch of a pint of milk in the fridge and some tea bags so you could have a cuppa straight away. The caravan was spacious with all the facilities we needed. The bed was comfy and they even provided bed linen.

The site was very well presented and very neat and tidy. I personally loved the swimming pool and was able to get quite a few lengths in over the days. It was very clean and the water was nice and warm.

There was the ability to get internet on the site and even though we personally didnt use it we had good reception in the caravan.

The site is peaceful and quiet which for us was perfect. The owners were very friendly and happy to talk to everyone and gave us some great advice on where to eat. (Polgooth Inn - superb!)

I can't recommend this site enough whether using the static vans or bringing your own caravan or tent. The price of the static van we hired was very reasonable as well.

If they had super excellent I would have given them that.

Well worth a visit.

We have just returned from an easter break staying at River Valley what a fantastic friendly welcome we recieved can't fault it.The site is spotless, well run and all the vans look new , the camping area is spacious and quiet It is in a great position to explore the lovely beaches on the south coast and near many tourist attractions such as the fantastic Eden project . As this is a family run site its retains a personal touch lost on many big sites we have visited .We will return as soon as possible .

I've been to many caravan sites over the years but this is the best so far! The Caravan was very clean and tidy and relatively new; there was even a pint of milk and 6 eggs in the 'van, waiting for us when we arrived which I thought was a very nice touch! Beds were comfortable and the bedding very clean.

It is a fairly small site which is family owned and not belonging to one of the major chains so, as such, the family running it cares about good service. We had our Yorkie with us but the standard of 'van we got was still extremely good - some sites give you a very poor 'van if you have your Dog with you. We always carry covers for the furniture anyway so the dog doesn't mess the place up! It is, after all, someone else's property so it is only fair that we respect that! It is just outside St Austell, on the road to Mevagissey, so is very central for getting around that part of the world. The Eden Project is very near as are many beaches and seaside facilities. There are some amenities for children but since we had none with us we didn't really look into that.

This is an excellent site for couples on their own, as we were, and the whole place is run extremely well. Notice boards outside the main office give the local weather report and what's on in the area for that day. When we went it was getting towards the end of the season and so was nice and quiet (which we like) but I can imagine in Summer it could get very busy. There is also a section of the Park where you can pitch tents and park motor homes and there are also cottages for rent.

I have no hesitation in giving River Valley Holiday Park a 5 Star rating, particularly for our age group: 60+, but if you want night clubs on a site, restaurants, loads of amenities, Karaoke, noise and organised games etc for children then this might not be the site for you!

Room Tip: Whichever caravan you choose I don't think you'll be disappointed!
