Stayed here last July in our motorhome whilst on a tour of Cornwall. We picked the site at random as we had just been to visit Mevagissey and as it was outside of the school holidays they had a pitch for us. Friendly welcoming and professional staff, beautifully kept site and the bonus of a lovely swimming pool. Will definately be back for longer this year.

First time for us July last year (2013) but I have just phoned and spoke to Alison and booked for July again this year in a caravan. We had a 12ft caravan which was a 6 berth with two toilets. I agree with all comments previously mentioned. The indoor pool was fantastic with an area open to the outside for sunbathing. The children loved it. On leaving the pool there are showers for all with free hot water. Also within the adjacent toilet block there is a private bathroom with a bath and free hot water which meant we could bath the children ready for bed. Although we were in a caravan I had a look at the toilets/shower block and found they were very pleasant, clean and once again free hot water. We had great weather but plenty to do around if weather otherwise. We found a seat near to us under a tree which in the hot weather gave us shade and as we were a family of eleven in two caravans. We would all take our garden chairs to the shade under the tree and enjoy the site. We ate all our evening meals outside on the picnic table provided. We love Cornwall and from this site you can enjoy it all.

Fabulous campsite in lovely peaceful location. Amenities are spotless and quaint. Stayed in one of the static caravans which was spotless, very spacious - much more than we expected with 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and another separate WC. Beautiful location right next to the river with walks down to the beach. Great park area for children and lovely swimming pool.Will definitely be coming back!
Only comment worth noting is that the single beds are quite narrow in the static caravans.

We have just spent four nights at this park and thought it was lovely, quiet, well maintained and friendly. The static caravan we stayed in although small (we could have booked a larger one) was well equipped, comfortable, clean and tidy with parking near by. Neighbours were quiet and the pool was lovely. Would stay here again and recommend it highly to friends and family.

My only reservation is that it was difficult to find out about the static caravans on their website, the info was there, but well hidden.

I used to visit this site as a little girl with my parents so decided to return now I'm in my mid twenties as I always remembered it being lovely. We were greeted by Allison Clemo who is lovely and friendly and has a really sweet little cat called Marbles who roams around the reception. The site is small but not cramped small, comfortable and quiet. The caravan we stayed in my immaculately clean and had a tray of tea, milk and biscuits waiting for us. There is alot to do around the site, a pets corner with animals to meet, a swimming pool and lots of nice river walks. The reception sells fresh eggs and ice creams and there is a shop across the road for anything else. It is less than a 2 mile walk to St Austell and the pubs surrounding are great. One of the great things about this whole place is it feels so safe.I had a lovely holiday and cannot wait to come back here.

This is our forth time at River Valley, cant say anything that hasn't already been said, we had caravan number 13 this time, unlucky for some but luck doesn't come into it at River Valley, you know its going to be great.
Biscuits, tea and milk in the caravan on arrival, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
Alison Clemo was as helpful and courteous as ever as were all the other staff we came into contact with.
Swimming pool was lovely, the grounds were in perfect condition and the location is beautiful.
No camp shop but nice little store across the road for papers, milk and any other essentials.
No club house which is a blessing but there is a nice little pub 5 minutes away called the Polgooth Inn, smashing place.
Lovely little stream runs along side the park and on the other side a lovely walk down to Pentewan.
Asda and Tesco are 5 minutes away in St Austell so shopping is not a problem, nice little chippy opposite Tesco as well, their cod and chips are great.
Mevagissy a few miles away where there is another fantastic chippy as well as a beautiful working harbour.
Cant really say much more except that River Vally is in our opinion the best holiday park in Cornwall and we have been holidaying in Cornwall for over 20 years, we wish we had found this site earlier.
Well done to the Clemo family and thank you for making our holidays with you something toremember.

Room Tip: All the caravans are spotless so all you have to do is pick any one, you wont be disappointed
