Through Time & Tide

As we rounded the road into Marazion the iconic shape of St Michael’s Mount (NT)appeared, and easily found a large car park on the shore within walking distance of the causeway. We followed the footsteps of the pilgrims across the causeway to the island where we were going to discover a castle full of myths and legends,…

Corners of Cornwall

There are secret corners on Cornwall’s two coasts In this land of smugglers and shipwrecks and ghosts ‘Sunny Corner’ St Ives is one of those spots That big blue horizon with tiny white yachts. Relax, dream of pasties and Cornish cream teas Where white seagulls float on the gentle,sea breeze Corners like Mousehole, Porthcurno, Lamorna…

Sun, Sand & Surfers

As we arrived at Godrevy club site we were greeted by old friends Jane and Macky with whom we worked at Hillhead in Brixham (Torquay) in 2012. Such a lovely surprise as we are due to visit them at Merrose Farm. Once settled on pitch we decided to walk the dunes which are huge and end…

Finally On the Trail of Poldark

Today saw the real start of the Poldark trail, we went to Holywell Bay (NT) and recognised Gull Rock which is a backdrop to lots of scenes in series 2. The sea was amazingly clear and turquoise blue as it crashed onto the shore. We walked along the cliff top by MOD land and noticed…

Pilgrimage to Padstow

Left Trewethett and Tintagel and continued our travels through Cornwall. Through pretty villages and majestic wind farms. We thought we would revisit Padstow, previously visited in about 2004. As we entered the top of the village there was a sign for Park & Ride, do use it if you go, because it only cost £4…

Tasty Tintagel

“We’ll walk to Tintagel today, according to the map it’s not as far as Boscastle!!!” Said Mike this morning… However, what Mike had failed to realise that there were humongously steep valleys to climb down and up (should have known by the name Valley of the Rocks). So although the map looked like 2mm in…

5* Outlook

We arrived in Cornwall early this afternoon, and having pitched Vera, we decided that we would walk to Boscastle, after all it only took us about 10 minutes in the van to get to Trewethett Farm Caravan Club Site….  of course that was via the road, we forgot that you have to go up hill,…

Goodbye Devon…

It’s time to say a fond farewell to Kaye and Steve. We wish them all our best wishes for next season, we know they’ll be happy at their next site in Peterborough. We’ll meet up next Spring for training. Time also to say goodbye to Devon but we have enjoyed this unexplored area and we…

Exploring Exmoor

Woke up this morning to driving rain, however after about an hour this had reduced to a drizzle. We met up with Kaye and Steve and went to Dulverton village. Continuing with our theme of the holiday (ie Poldark and film locations), they told us that Land Girls was filmed here. I’ve wanted to go…

Arrived at Exebridge

We headed out under grey clouds, tried to find blue skies and finally found the sun. Exebridge is easy to find if you follow the directions given, the roads are decent and wide enough. The site itself has a good clear entrance and is on several levels, the pitch we chose is level. We are…
