Ruthern Valley is a fantastic site for kids to get back to nature. Run by parents who have two small boys this holiday experience is aimed at families who prefer their kids to run around outdoors, enjoying their freedom and busy making new friends. This is not a holiday for those of you who need the nightly throb of music, flashing lights and cheesy bingo callers. You can however relax, explore and enjoy the 8 acres of mature woodland teaming with local wildlife; wild flowers are everywhere, a bubbling stream runs alongside the site and nature watchers will find themselves engaged by the antics of the squirrels and wild rabbits. Not forgetting the abundance of fantastic days out and places to see in Cornwall.
If a holiday with a roof over your head is what you're looking for then there is a choice from 8 timber cabins(sleeping a family of 6), 4 Cedar wood bungalows, 4 static holiday caravans, all fully equipped for self-catering. For the more adventurous, there are wigwams or camping huts. The touring caravan and camping area has 26 pitches, 6 of which have electric hook-up; there is designated campers' shower and toilet block - with solar hot water - and with laundry facilities.
At Ruthern Valley the owners firmly believe that having space is a right, not a luxury, so you will find all the accommodation areas, including the camping pitches, are designed to create ‘a little world of your own' amongst friends.
