Cornwall's environment is unique with its granite moorland spine overlooking the sea on both sides. Our site is situated alongside Bodmin Moor and beneath Caradon Hill. Where, on a clear day, visitors have a glittering range of options to view from its summit. Our site offers the perfect location to base yourself from when it comes to getting out and exploring the cornish moorland and beaches or even getting across the Tamar into the vibrant City of Plymouth (22 miles)!
To the South, we have the beaches at Looe (12 miles) and Whitsand Bay (12 miles) and to the North we have the spectacular moorland around Caradon Hill (2 miles), which is littered with History and hidden gems like the Golitha Falls (5 miles) and Cheesewring stones (5 miles). Or, if you're looking for even more of an adventure you can run or ride the many trails in the area with a challenge for all abilities and for the real adrenaline junckies, we have the nationally renowned Adrenaline quarry only a 5 miles away from us! There is also the fantastic Cardinham woods(15 miles), perfect for woodland walks with the dog or heart racing downhill mountain biking!
In the east just across the Tamar Valley, Brentor Church (20 miles) stands on its rugged outcrop with the hills and tors of Dartmoor rising up behind it. To the west on a clear day the sun shimmers off the satellite dishes of the Goonhilly Earth station (63 miles) on the Lizard Peninsula. The most southerly point of Britain.
Long designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, more recently this part of Bodmin Moor achieved international recognition as part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape area World Heritage site.
So whether it's a brisk walk along 4 miles of beach at Whitsand Bay or exploring the silent engine houses of the Caradon Mining District there really is something for everyone

"Third visit and still not enough!! Very comfortable and quiet haven. Many thanks once again" Mr & Mrs C Dorset 2019.
Having been raised at Fursdon when it was a working dairy farm, Kathryn was instrumental in working with her parents Brian and Barbara to diversify into camping and caravanning. Using their own personal camping and caravanning experiences the first event, a rally was held in 1991. There was some concern from Brian as to whether people would want to come and sit in a field ! However this was soon allayed with growing numbers attending the rallies and year on year recognition as a Camping & Caravanning Club Member Recommended Site. Returning to live in 2008 Kathryn and John have developed Fursdon to meet the standards required by Cornwall Council for a fully licensed camping and caravan site. Together with Rebel the family black Labrador and Billy, Millie and Sox the cats they look forward to extending the same Truly Cornish welcome that Fursdon's reputation has been built upon to you and your family and friends..
