Why stay here ...

At 0.9 miles, Fowey CL is the closest caravan site to the picturesque, historic harbour town of Fowey. The CL is peaceful and quiet located away from the house in a secluded location screened by mature trees and shrubs. We are well back from the road minimising traffic noise and the road itself is the quietest route in and out of Fowey. To overcome the challenges of a sloping site, the ground has been terraced to provide level, well drained pitches.

All of our pitches are, more or less, level and accessed by a wide, surfaced track allowing plenty of room for turning and parking. We found that grass pitches were not durable enough so we have upgraded all our pitches with granite chippings. If you are planning on erecting an awning please ensure that your pegs are sufficiently robust. All pitches have a 16A electrical point and their own, very accessible water tap. I am happy to assist with parking if help is required.

The CL caravan site would make a great base for kayakers, canoeists and anglers. Access to the River Fowey is via the free public slipway only 1 mile away. Alternatively, Polkerris has an excellent water-sports centre hiring kayaks, dinghies, windsurfers etc.

This is excellent walking country with many interesting routes right on our doorstep. We would be happy to recommend our favourites.

Fowey is a charming, historic harbour town on the picturesque Fowey estuary. Fowey has all the amenities one would expect from a Cornish town dependent on tourism. There are numerous restaurants to cater to all tastes not to mention a choice of pubs and boutique shops to entertain all comers. Our nearest pub is 0.9 miles from the site and our nearest beach, Readymoney Cove, is 1.6m. Alternatively you could try quaint Polkerris 2.3 miles away. In addition to the beach, you could have a drink at The Rashleigh Inn (featured in The Guardian's top summer pubs list 2009) and watch the sunset over St. Austell Bay.

For those wishing to explore the surrounding area there are plenty of attractions on our doorstep. The iconic Eden Project is only 5.5 miles away and well worth a visit at any time of the year, especially in June when Eden host their Eden Sessions (advance booking required). Alternatively why not explore historic Charlestown only 6.8 miles away. The historic harbour was a location during the filming of the BBC's new adaptation of Poldark. Polperro nd Mevagissey and the Lost Gardens Of Heligan are 7.5 miles and 13.5 miles respectively and make a great day out. Or perhaps you would prefer to relax on one of Cornwall's many beaches, explore Cornwall's rich industrial heritage and evocative ruins, visit some of Cornwall's great gardens or maybe have a gastronomic holiday and sample the best seafood and local produce the county has to offer in many of our fine restaurants. Cornwall really does make a great holiday location for all tastes and budgets. Please click on the link to Fowey CL website for more information about our site.

We have just installed free WiFi. We look forward to welcoming you to our site.

4th July 2020 we made it!

Well this site is one of the most fabulous CL sites that we’ve stayed at! Our communications with Sarah & David through emails were amazing. Obviously everyone wondering if they’d get away due to COVID 😞 Using our own facilities as no toilets/showers was no problem at all, especially as all 5 pitches had their water own tap/ and waste 😁 We were on pitch 4 which had sun and shade, good spot for our dog too as near plenty of grass. Hard standing pitches incredibly level thanks to the owners who’ve really spent time and money on this site. Not far to walk down into the town. We had a kayak with us which you can launch from the quay (free of charge) just pay to park your car. The town itself is beautiful, quiet, peaceful with enough shops to do some retail shopping. Fabulous places to eat, have a drink on the quay. Our favourite place to eat was North Street Kitchen (if you like fish)! We can’t recommend this beautiful site and area enough. Thank you to Sarah and David We’ll be back!! Lots of luck with the rest of the summer and stay safe Ali & Steve Dyer

Fabulous CL

We had a one night get away last night and chose this site because it is close enough to walk in to Fowey, has hardstanding and accepts dogs! David explained when we booked that he is working on two of the pitches so the site does not look its best but it didn't affect us - it’s good to know there are ongoing upgrades! David welcomed us on arrival, we chose pitch 5, the shady pitch, which was perfect for us and the dogs loved sniffing around in the wooded areas around the site. Wifi was great, pitch was level and no blocks required, water and grey waste on the pitch too. Lovely to hear the owl at night too (after the heavy rain had stopped!). The walk to Fowey is along the lane but it wasn’t busy; we did a circular route so took a cut through off the main lane and arrived in Fowey by the church, we walked back along the lane past the boatyard. The town mini bus will drop you off at the site too. It was lovely to meet David and Sarah and we’ll definitely return.

This sites main advantage is the closeness to Fowey. It's easy to walk to which is a good job as driving around Fowey would be a nightmare. The site is peaceful enough. We had one of the sunny pitches would not have liked the shady pitch.

PEACEFUL AND LOVELY SETTING

This was our second visit to Fowey CL, and its one of the best sites we have stayed in. Sarah and David are very welcoming lovely people.The site has 5 hardstanding pitches with water taps on each pitch. The waste disposal and chemical toilet disposal are easily accessible. It is just under a mile walk into Fowey, which is a lovely seaside town and well worth a visit.

Excellent site

This was my first club site and it was lovely. I needed somewhere for a few days in this area to catch up with an old friend but I motorhome on my own and have only been doing this for a few months. I need pitches that are relatively level and facilities to be accessible for someone who walks with the aid of a stick because of a few mobility problems. This site fitted the bill brilliantly and the owner was keen to make me welcome and to help if needed. Water was literally just behind me, a few feet away, hook up was a few feet further up a small incline next to the fence but easy enough even for me. The grey water drain was all of a foot away below the motorhome and cassette emptying was a short walk across from my pitch, perhaps 30m and was easy to use and keep everything clean. The site was peaceful and quiet and it is somewhere I will come back to if in this area in the future. I can recommend it unreservedly.
