4.6 (119 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.

Wow

Tomlin, Jon-Peter - 19/01/2023

My family and I were impressed by our little cabin. It was really warm and homely. It felt like home from home. The only slight issue for me being a disabled person was how difficult it was to get in and out of the bath to shower. I don't know if there are more 'accessible' cabins as it's only the first time we have stayed Rutthern. However, if a handheld was fitted, then it would resolve the issue completely. I rated 5 stars because everything else was great. The beds were comfortable, and the whole cabin was spotless. We would definitely stay at Ruthern again.

Enjoyed our stay as always, just peace and quiet and abundance of wildlife whatever time of year. Nice little touches like flowers in the cabins and just about all the items that we normally forget supplied as standard anyway! Nicky and Andrew always welcoming and ready to help but just leave you to enjoy the freedom and surroundings, perfect. Shall be booking soon for another stay in the new year, can't wait!!

Wonderful place to stay

Hampton, Sharon - 27/12/2022

This was our 3rd time back at Ruthern Valley. We have previously stayed in one of their mega pods which was absolutely lovely glamping with all the mod cons, but on this occasion we booked a log cabin. Such a lovely cabin in a beautiful and peaceful location. The log cabin exceeded our expectations and was spotlessly clean with lovely decor throughout and had absolutely everything you could possibly want for a peaceful break. Ruthern Valley is beautiful, tranquil and very peaceful. Perfect! Andrew and Nicola are absolutely lovely and very welcoming hosts and we can’t wait to book and go back there.

Brilliant

Hunter, Tiffany - 18/12/2022

We only stayed for 1 night, the iciest night of the year! But we were very cosy in our little pod. The heater took a little while to heat up but once it did, it was perfect. The owners are really thoughtful, kind and incredibly helpful. Then they went above and beyond for us when we got stuck in the ice after we'd left.The accomodation was clean and comfortable. The property was also very tidy and easy to navigate. We really enjoyed our brief visit and would definitely come again.

This is the perfect spot if your looking for complete tranquility, quiet with a dash of nature.Nestled in Ruthern (Bodmin Cornwall) is this wonderful site. It's actually a David Bellamy Awarded site with small wooded area, a brook and small wooded walk. There are a number of log cabins, glamping pods, areas for secluded campers.There's a small shop/reception onsite with very accommodating & friendly staff. The shop supplies, a range of goods from groceries, news papers, etc.You may even spot the often spotted the Bodmin beast (Large Cat non-native) or visit the local Vineyard a 10 min drive. We've been twice and will definately return again.A wonderful place.
