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.

Peaceful with great location

The site is owned by a very nice couple who let you get on with your holiday but are there if needed. It is very well kept. We were lucky to have a pitch in the centre of the 4 on the top row as the end pitches and the one on its own would have been a little dark for me because of the trees. That’s just personal preference as I know lots of people who like to be in trees and it does show them on the photos. We hardly used our car as the site is in such a great spot for Fowey and great walks from the site. I would definitely recommend the site

Peaceful, easy access, close to Fowey

Lovely site, easy to get to and access was no problem with Motorhome, caravan could be little difficult if you miss the entrance. We walked to Fowey and it took 20 min, brought our kayaks, parked in the car park 5 min drive with slipway a few metres away - ideal location for Fowey. Definitely be visiting again.

October in Fowey

We planned a late holiday in Fowey to see relations and to visit Cornwall. From the beginning of the booking process we were impressed with the site and upon arrival we were not disappointed. The owners go out of their way to make the stay a very pleasant experience. The facilities are superb, they even fixed the weather for us. Like other reviews we cannot praise them highly enough. We will be back next year and we thank you for your continued efforts. John and Celia

Nice Peaceful Location Close to Fowey

First visit to a Cl for us very impressed the 5 pitches were very spacious flat and well appointed with Sky TV wi-fi water and electric hook up on every pitch. This is a new site and the young couple that have set it up will bend over backwards to help in any way they can. Arrived to find a board with my name on it on our pitch. Please note that that one of the pitches is very secluded and shady this is pointed out when booking. You can see the availability on there website it's a shame all the other sites were not as switched on. We will return.

Fowey Campsite

Intimate site with just 5 pitches. Mine had its own power and water which was great. Basic facilities but a nice peaceful site with good access into Fowey. Loved the free WiFi. The wardens were hard to contact on arrival.
