Alan Rogers Review

This is a little gem of a site set in eight acres of woodland, tucked away in a peaceful little valley not far from Bodmin. Run by Andrew and Nicola Johnson, the park was landscaped over 30 years ago with an amazing range of trees and shrubs and there is plenty of animal wildlife. There are just eight touring pitches in a tree-lined field, informally spaced but numbered in the main, all with 10A electricity.

There are three caravan holiday homes, four wigwams and three camping huts. The bubbling stream is an attraction for children and now there are some chickens and farm animals in an additional field, not to mention some adventure-type play equipment in an area set away from the pitches. A toilet block and a little shop complete the provision. Ruthern is a special place to unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Go walking, cycling or birdwatching (38 different species of bird have been recorded).


Small, fully equipped toilet block with gas- and solar-heated water. Washing machines and dryer. Shop with basic provisions shares with reception (reduced hours in low season). Barbecue hire. Play area including five-a-side goal posts. Field with farm animals. Bicycle hire. Wetsuit and bodyboard hire. Free WiFi. Dogs are not accepted.

Do not use satnav which directs down unsuitable roads. From A30 St Austell/Innis Downs junction turn right to Lanivet, through town then towards Bodmin. After about 1 mile turn left and follow brown chalet sign to Nanstallon. Just before Nanstallon turn left for 100 m. then left again and following road into Ruthernbridge. At Ruthernbridge turn left just before stone bridge and site is on left in 300 m.
