Ruthern Valley Holidays

4.6 (104 reviews)

Ruthern Valley is nestled in a beautiful wooded valley near Bodmin Moor offering a selection of self-catering holiday lodges and glamping, along with a fully equipped, designated camping and caravan area. A quiet site near the Camel Trail, with no outdoor lighting, 20 minutes from both the North and South coasts, it's perfect for walking, biking, beaches, stargazing, BBQing and simply chillaxing.

Ruthern Valley offers a holiday experience where you can get in touch with nature and wildlife; a centrally based haven from which you can enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer. It’s ideal for families and friends. There's a play area for children, on-site bike & wetsuit hire, an on-site shop for basic groceries, locally sourced produce, ice-creams/confectionery, a selection of soft and alcoholic drinks, camping gas and equipment, plus a few luxuries.

Ruthern Valley gives you a choice for any budget. There are 8 timber cabins, 4 cedar wood bungalows, 1 static holiday caravan, all fully equipped for self-catering. For the more adventurous, there are 2 glamping ensuite MegaPods, 4 glamping wigwams and 3 camping huts (pods). The touring caravan and camping area has 26 pitches, 8 of which have electric hook-up; there is a designated campers’ shower and toilet block – with solar hot water – and laundry facilities. The new and extremely popular Mega Pods are a glam-tastic new way to enjoy the big outdoors – with a little warmth, plus a sofa!

Listen to the birds and not traffic. Read a book, sip some wine, plan your bike trip to Padstow on the Camel Trail. We’re a hop skip and a pedal from the Wadebridge estuary, Camel Valley Vineyard, Grogley Woods or Bodmin Gaol! Or you can relax on site and let the children run off to the play area or feed the chickens after exploring the woodland trails.

Family-run and friendly, Ruthern Valley looks forward to welcoming you.

Camping under the trees

A well laid out site set under trees near the Camel Trail and Bodmin. Facilities include good shower, dish cleaning, toilet and recycling facilities - with hot water supply. A friendly site - where we tried out a camping pod for the first time (a good experience).

Loved the mega pod

Staig, Sarah - 04/08/2022

This was our second trip here. First time we stayed in a smaller pod and was a bit cramped for family on 4 but we loved the location and site and wanted to stay again. This time we stayed in a mega pod which was great for us and had a toilet in the pod - very useful with small children. Everything was very clean and site was lovely and quiet. Showers are nice and were clean. Shops are not too far to drive to and there’s a small shop Onsite for essentials. Lovely beaches which are a bit of a drive away but very worth it. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend. Thanks!

Such a lovely peaceful spot

Alderson, Susan - 29/07/2022

We were so pleased with our pitch ,surrounded by shrubs and trees ,very private .we didn't have to do much levelling up either.The quietness of the whole place was just what we wanted and needed,so pleased we chose Ruthern for our few nights away .We were amazed by the huge amount of items in the shop, Nicky said they had a few essentials but there was much more .The bikes we hired from the site were great easy to ride ,we very much enjoyed our cycle ride to Camelford, all on the level .Only one moan ,the floors of the showers were running with water and I wish there was some sort of small stool /table /shelf to put stuff on ,but saying that lovely hot showers.We will be visiting Ruthern again without doubt, a great place to stay ,thankyou.

Great Stay in a Mega Pod

Dawes, Steve - 27/07/2022

5

This holiday was a surprise for my wife’s birthday and I was a bit apprehensive about the Mega Pod but I needn’t have. The Pod was superb and cosy with all the right facilities. It was located at the top of the site so nice and peaceful and the shower block was just down the path. The showers were spacious, spotlessly clean and modern with plenty of hot water.The bed in the pod was very comfortable and the rest of the facilities were just right.Overall great value for money and highly recommended

The setting

Swain, Julie - 27/07/2022

A little disappointed to hear we were not allowed to take a car onto the grass. This could have posed a problem with an air tent as we are not young and fit, therefore we depend on car electrics to inflate the tent. In the end the owner allowed us to reverse onto grass solely for this purpose. Washing facilities are very good.

Absolute sanctuary!

Stoskevicius, Inga - 26/07/2022

4

Amazing place, very quiet, surrounded by nature. Loved the narrow roads, gives this extra special feeling :)Log cabin was very very clean, 10 out of 10 for that! One thing could be improved - window nets would be an advantage, especially in the bedrooms ( I don't do bugs, first night tried to catch a nasty one :) ).Children loved the playground and visiting little farm (pigs and hens).Bodmin and Newquay is a short drive from Ruthern Valleys, with plenty of lovely beaches, not forgetting Port Isaac (Portwenn) Doc Martin's place :)Would highly recommend this place.
