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.

Fantastic CL

Fowey CL
Stayed here between 30 Apr - 2 May with friends who also had their Moho on another pitch. What a peaceful and well kept site. I met the owners on the first and last day and they were helpful and very kind in offering guidance about the local area. EHU and water on every pitch. Will be using again.

A great site for visiting this area of Cornwall

Fowey CL
After having to cancel earlier in the year because of Covid-19 we finally made it at the end of September. This is one of the best of all the sites we've stayed at in 28 years of membership. All of the pitches are level and although we had the lower and most inaccessible one it wasn't too much trouble to back onto using the car. Using a mover should make it easy. The fully serviced water and drainage was certainly missed when we moved on. Our old tv wasn't up to receiving good reception even though David & Sarah loaned us a set top box to try to improve things. Negotiating the Par one way system and on-street parking with a largish caravan can be a bit of a challenge but in reality isn't too bad and well worth the effort for such a lovely site. Because of the Covid restrictions we found The Eden Project (and other attractions) had some limitations but more enjoyable without the crowds. To be recommended.

Wonderful stay

Fowey CL
What a lovely site! Owners so friendly and welcoming with lovely spacious pitches. Easy walk to Fowey but it is down a road without pavement so care is needed. Fowey is lovely but our favourite thing was the walk along the coastal path to polkerris ... just stunning! ... and recovery at the Rashleigh arms! Highly recommended

This pleasant land

Sarah kept us informed regarding the impact of Covid and we were able to delay our planned break by a couple of weeks. The site itself is lovely, well screened, protected and private. No road noise and offering an easy walk into Fowey. The serviced pitches, including fast WiFi and satellite hook up are brilliant. We have had 11 glorious days. Sun and shade available, and our two Cavalier dogs loved the walk up the quiet lane as well as ambling round this site. We cannot speak more highly of this CL. It even has a brilliant tourist information area for access to leaflets and local information. The bonus is Fowey is such a lovely place to hang out and enjoy the views, boat trips and good choice of restaurants etc. The location for exploring easily between Looe in the east and Falmouth in the West, or beyond, is also a positive. One (very minor) comment is the CL is easily found but you could drive past not realising this is Fowey CL, at the gate it is signed Lescrow House. We nearly drove on, which would have been a big mistake given Fowey has such narrow roads and no easy turning with a caravan. Probably us rather than signage and certainly not a criticism since everyone seems to find the CL without too much of a problem in any event. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

4th July 2020 we made it!

Fowey CL
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
