We found this lovely CL some 20 years ago, and have stayed a few times down the years. It is now in the careful hands of the next generation, who is making sure it retains it’s away from it all feel, but with aspects now so important to today’s tourers.
The CL is an acre of lawned and wildflower grassland, sheltered from winds by tall trees and some shrubs, retaining an open sunny aspect. It lies a mile or so from the centre of Fowey, on a relatively quiet road, with good access. Part of the field has now been given over to hardstandings, so there is a choice now for those who prefer or need hardstandings. We had no need to use levelling blocks with our small MH during our stay. Hook ups are spaced around the field, pitches are not marked out, but there is ample space for 5 vans even when full. There are two water points in the field, only a short distance from all pitches. A grey water disposal point and rinse hose, and a chemical toilet disposal point with rinse hose are situated on the road side of the field, again, close by all pitches. Both are brand new and easy to use. A small hut provides an information point with local guides, maps, walks and bus timetables. The bus into Fowey stops close by the entrance, and if asked drivers will stop at the gates! Bruce, the owner, has provided a small safe dog walk perfect for a quick first morning, and last night time walk for dogs around the big garden and orchard. Further walks are easily accessible direct from the site, with a bit of care needed on road, but this really is some of the best walking country in Cornwall! We recommend the OS map for the area.
Fowey is quite stunningly beautiful, full of history, with some great pubs and eateries. It’s easy to get out and about to other places of interest such as the Roseland, the North Coast, and it’s only an hours drive to get onto Dartmoor, or down to Lands End or the Lizard.
Telephone signal is good, we had no problems with Virgin mobile, closest petrol is a short half mile drive at Four Turnings Garage, although Tesco is cheaper towards St Austell. Supermarkets are Tesco and Asda, both in St Austell, small Coop in Lostwithiel.
At time of writing this review, no WiFi at moment, but cabling was in and it is to to provided in the near future.
A great location, friendly, helpful owner, this is a long established CL undergoing investment to provide more for visitors, and we shall be returning in the near future. A true gem of a CL.
