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 On a clear day visitors have a glittering range of options to view from its summit.
To the South Looe and Whitsand Bays, with Plymouth Sound glimmering in the sunlight a little further eastwards.
Looking north Bodmin Moor with the high moorland provide the sources for both the River Fowey and Tamar. The Tamar Valley separating the Duchy from Devon (and England!) is home to a wealth of wildlife as well as its famed soft fruit. Tamar Valley strawberries remain a firm seasonal favourite on a hot summer afternoon.
Meanwhile the river Fowey provides the source for Sibleyback Lake before it meanders through Golitha Falls and on to Daphne Du Maurier's former home near the sea port from which it takes its name.
In the east just across the Tamar Valley, Brentor Church 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 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..
