"A very tidy Park set in a magnificent open location with some superb views"


Penmarlam Caravan & Camping Park

The Park is divided into two areas. The first offers miles of stunning views across the Cornish hills, the second is screened, lawned and sheltered. Being in an elevated location our 63 grass pitches are well drained even in the most inclement weather, all have a 16 amp electric hookup point, our service pitches also have water tap and drainage on-pitch, and there are numerous drinking water points around the Park as well as in the central amenity areas, so you will never have carry water very far. Choose your own pitch from those available on arrival.

Boat Launching, Fishing & Access to the Estuary

The slipway to the Estuary is adjacent to the site entrance, where you can launch and store your boat, or take a pontoon berth.

Visitors to the Park may also use the quay and picnic area on foot. Fishing is available from the Quay.


Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Most of the coastline of the Fowey Estuary and around is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with rocky bays, picturesque villages, and is of course a boat lover's paradise.

Bodinnick village is extremely picturesque and calm. You can walk into the village from the Park, perhaps enjoy lunch at the Old Ferry Inn, part of which is built into the rock face. Daphne du Maurier's House "Ferryside" is across the road where she wrote "The Loving Spirit" set in nearby Polruan. The annual Daphne du Maurier Festival of Arts & Literature is held in Fowey each May.

There are many varied and interesting walks around, including the famous "Hall Walk", but plan carefully as some of the hills can be steep. From Bodinnick walk to Polruan crouched behind the head of the Estuary via the tiny hamlet of Pont where you can watch the hummingbirds, catch the passenger ferry to Fowey and return on the Bodinnick ferry which appears in records as far back as 1344 (though not the current ferryboat).

Fowey Town (a short ferry ride across the river) hosts the famous Fowey Regatta in August, a glorious celebration of racing, feasting and high spirits, when some 2,500 visiting yachts boost the substantial resident yacht population. Enjoy the action safe in the knowledge that you have a peaceful enclave at Penmarlam Park to return to.
