We have returned from Ruthern Valley Holidays today and we had an excellent weekend break there.

The lodge we stayed in was immaculate and exceptionally clean. The heating had been put on ready for us so it was warm when we got in.

The owner was friendly and welcoming and was very accommodating when we asked if it was ok for my brother and his family to visit us.

Would definitely recommend this place. We sat in the lounge and watched the robins and finches land on our decking and have a look in the patio doors at us.

Just had a lovely break in Cornwall. Perfect for families. Warm and cosy, despite the cold outside. Clean and well equipped. Safe place for playing, nice open grounds with view of the playing area. Vast select of birds coming down on the d cling for breakfast. Friendly host and well stocked shop. Excellent value. Quite and rural, but well positioned for the coast and Eden Project. Sad to come home.

We stayed at a Larches Lodge for 7 nights 24/11 - 01/12, 2017.

By night number three we had booked again for next year.

We were looking for a getaway from it all escape for our anniversary and we got an incredibly peaceful lodge spotlessly clean, lovely and cosy and well equipped with everything you need bar towels which we knew about anyway.

Beds made up on arrival with spotless linen and when we got there the cabins more than sufficient heating had been turned on ready for us.

Kitchen comprises of a four seater table, full size electric oven with hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, utensils, cups, glasses, plates, dishes, pans, oven dishes etc (supply your own tea towels).

Lounge comprises of 2 seater sofa bed, 2 tub chairs, lamp + table, coffee table, flat screen TV with freeview and wireless internet throughout the site, large patio doors looking out onto decked area (excellent for wildlife watching).

Bedroom 1 comprises of double bed, two large bedside cabinets, single wardrobe, spotless beds made up on arrival with 4 pillows & quilt. (Very comfy)

Bedroom 2 comprises of two regular sized single beds, wardrobe and bedside cabinet separating beds. Good sized room far better than any caravans we stayed in.

Bathroom comprises of bath with overhead shower, WC & washbasin.
Spotless again.

Lovely outdoor area with decking to front with picnic table and a covered walkway to side. Handy for our very british unpredictable weather & bird watching.

Lodges vary very slightly so don't use this as a checklist. We were in Lodge 2.

Lots of wildlife around with plenty visiting Jays, nuthatches, woodpecker and many more common garden birds.

The vast majority of the time we didnt't even notice other people on site staying at the same time. Bliss.

The owner came to visit after we had settled to check we were happy and everything was working correctly and we were happy. Lovely touch thank you.

Well equipped shop on site.

Very sadly we had to leave a day early due to family issues but my husband and I have decided to make this our anniversary retreat as this really is a little gem of a place to stay with easy access to the rest of Cornwall should you wish to explore.

My partner and I stayed 2 nights in a Wigwam and 3 nights in a megapod!

Both were cosy and warm during the cold spell of weather we had during our stay.

Staff are absolutely fantastic! Always pleasant and on hand to help. We asked for a framed chicken picture to be in the room on arrival for my boyfriend's birthday and the staff at Ruthern did not disappoint! See attached picture! :)

The showers and toilets blocks are spotless and well equipped. The campsite itself is situated in beautiful countryside.

Many thanks to everyone at Ruthern for making our stay special. Looking forward to seeing you again!!

Thank you Jess & Elliott x

I must say we've had a few unusual requests, but never a framed chicken. We're glad it didn't disappoint! Nicky loves her camera and has taken most of the photos on the website and Facebook/Instagram. And when it gets right down to it, chickens are incredibly photogenic.
