Why stay here ...

Fenwick Trout Fishery is very near Camle trail which has up to 10 miles of cycling. The site itself has woodland walks and is full of wildlife and has the backdrop of the woods. It is a very beautiful place to stay.

We are central for both coasts and about 9 miles from the Eden project. Shops are half a mile away. Bodmin town is about a mile where there are 4 supermarkets plus other shopping facilities. The pub just up the road has a restaurant with good food.

Seen better days

It is easy to miss the entrance to this site. No one was around to welcome us or even take our money. The site is pleasant enough if you don’t mind the 30 foot high leylandii hedge which makes for a claustrophobic area and fails to cut out the noise of traffic. The one toilet was less than adequate. The site has obviously had investment in the past but sadly suffers from loss of interest by its owners. The redeeming feature is the ease of access to the wonderful Camel Trail. Overall, staying here was a disappointing experience. In our opinion it is overpriced for what it is at present and in comparison with other sites we have stayed on recently.

One night stay

The access to the site is difficult but the information in the caravan club sites book warned us. Upon arrival we couldn’t gain access to the site due to a secure gated entry requiring a code. I saw a man cutting the grass and he gave us the access code. We did not then see anybody else again from the site. The walks from here are excellent. We walked in the woods and along the Camel Trail. Another member advised us of these walks. The facilities need some TLC. The location is beautiful.

Campervan Visit May 2018

Impersonal site - we never saw the owners to speak to, our only communication was by phone and was necessitated by the tripping out of the electricity supply to the whole site (?caused by the Electric Gate to site) both on arrival and during the subsequent night. Pretty location but the adjacent road is very busy although we didn't find the noise too intrusive. There is a pavement opposite the site entrance which can be used to give safe access to a footpath leading to the Camel Trail (not far to wheel one's bike). Pitches flat and surrounding grass well maintained. Water supply to pitch but no instructions re grey water disposal. Black water emptying point not used!

Nice location but beware entrance!!

Have just returned after 5 nights. Totally agree with other comments- nice location but in need of some TLC. The road noise didn't bother us as we were on a pitch a little further away from the road. The Camel Trail is accessible for walking via a path through the woods from the rear of the CL which is very pleasant alongside the river. If using bikes you will have to go uphill on the road to the Bourough Arms. Worse bit...the access. If coming from Bodmin direction the entrance is a VERY sharp left hand turn after a bridge. We had to reverse back out onto the busy main road in order to make the turn. There is a nasty hump on the entrance and out twin axle nearly "bottomed out". They have clearly done some work to improve the entrance but still tricky for longer single axle, twin axles or motor homes. If coming from Wadebridge direction it would be much easier to access the site. A potentially fabulous site spoils by access.

Could be so much better

We stayed for 13 nights and cycled the Camel Trail, although access is close by you do need to cross the busy A389 to get on the trail so perhaps not ideal if cycling with young children. The road noise is ever present so avoid this site if this is something which would bother you. The site is in need of some general maintenance and is looking a bit unloved at the moment. The setting is lovely and we were really pleased that areas had been left for wildlife and assumed that the owners were keen on conservation. However, upon returning from our cycle ride one day the whole site smelt very strongly of chlorine. We were told that neat bleach had been sprayed to kill weeds, we objected to the smell and the potential for the bleach to be harmful to our dogs and were told that the rain would wash it away! Yes, straight into the watercourse and nearby river Camel! So much for conservation! The bleach was not even effective, instead of an untidy driveway covered with weeds they now have an untidy driveway covered with dead weeds! We are unlikely to return but hope that the site gets the TLC it deserves to bring it back to its full potential.
