Located high above the Fowey Estuary, on the edge of Bodinnick village, Penmarlam Caravan & Camping Park enjoys spectacular views across the hills and valleys of Southern Cornwall. The Park has been fully redevelopped with the construction of:
- Reception & Mini-Market with off-licence
- New heated toilet & shower block (Baby & toddler room & disabled facilities)
- Electric hookup points and Fully Serviced Pitches
- Internet access in reception or via our wireless network.
You can expect a warm welcome and first class facilities on site which have gained us a 4 Star Grading. Boat launching facilities are available from the slipway adjacent to the park entrance.
The Park is divided into two distinct areas. One lawned and sheltered includes some fully servied pitches, the other is open with views over miles of cornish countryside.
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. 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 very steep. From Bodinnick walk to Polruan crouched behind the head of the Estuary via the tiny hamlet of Pont, 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.
The beautiful and ever popular villages of Polperro and Looe are within easy reach to the east. The Eden Project is just a short drive away, as are the many gardens and attractions of Southern Cornwall.
For the more energetic a wide range of water sports are available on the Estuary including boat storage, pontoon berths and launching adjacent to the Park. For the children there are a number of activity and adventure parks nearby, as well as horse riding, fishing, swimming and much more.
