Lottie, our gorgeous vintage caravan has been so popular this summer. We have been saying Lottie Caravan was on the lookout for a sister, and we have now found her one. No pictures available just yet, but watch this space……. Lottie and her sister will both be available to rent for vintage caravan holidays in 2014. Lottie can still be rented this season for a cosy autumn stay, as she comes with a heater. Her beach hut lights also now look lovely with the nights starting to draw in.
The Meadows Team were very quick to christen our new caravan, and she is called “Mabel”. At the moment Mabel is still in Leicestershire, getting ready for her journey down to Cornwall to meet her sister Lottie. Mabel is another Castleton Vintage Caravan, but a different model to Lottie, and has her own personality. Castleton Caravans are quality caravans, (the Rolls Royce of their time) and it is unfortunate that their members’ club closed down in August this year. We had hoped for a members trip to The Meadows, and a line up of different Castleton Caravans. Mabel is going to be sited next to the stream, looking down the meadow field, and is a good sized two berth caravan. My head is full of ideas, for making Mabel beautiful and fun, and so I cannot wait for her to arrive on site, so that I can get stuck in. This is one of many autumn/winter projects for The Team, and Camp Daddy will be in charge of Mabel’s outdoor space.
We have had some very hardy campers staying with us this week, who have managed to smile through the rather poor weather. Those who picked this week, have been very unlucky, but they have still had a good time. Our campers still got out and about in their wet weather gear and wellies, enjoying the local walks, and escaping the rain in the many fine pubs, that we are lucky to be near to. The lucky campers are going to be those joining us this weekend, as next week looks to be lovely and warm, with quite a lot of sunshine. That will make next week a fabulous week for long walks, pub lunches, and back to camp for a cosy evening in your caravan, campervan, or tent. Looks like great evenings next week for sitting out with a firepit, toasting marshmellows :).
We have hook up pitches available next week, and “proper camping” pitches for the hardy autumn campers out there. Hardy campers, can visit at least knowing that they have fab hot and powerful showers to warm them up. Lottie Caravan is also available Friday, to Friday for either a weekly or short break stay. Lottie has a lovely view right down the meadow field so great for watching camp life, and it looks like deckchairs on the beach weather so they are all there ready to go.
So for all those lucky folk out there, who have either picked this coming week to take their holiday, or those who can just pack up and go we would love to see you. You can book in advance, or just turn up and choose your spot on arrival. Contact us here, or telephone 01726 844383. Check out my last blog, to see all the events still happening in the area, for those days off from walking & cycling!
News from Camp Dog Harvey
The ratio of females to males in this Meadows Team is rather worrying!! I now understand we have Mabel arriving on site shortly. I shall be checking Mabel out, as soon as she arrives on site. Camp Daddy and I have our own ideas to balance up the numbers.
I have had a school boy hair cut recently, and so am looking very smart. My shorter hairstyle also shows off my neckerchief to a treat. Unfortunately (for me) the “its all hair” not longer works, so it has to be muscle from all the hard summer work.
The best news of all is that in return for all of my hard work over the season, and ready for “down time” my wish for a log burner for my lazy winter evenings has been granted. I do not have any difficulty with communicating that I want the burner lighting, as I had lots of practice in my old home. There is also no doubt in the house, about who has pole position when the burner is lit. All my hard work over the summer has been worth it just for that!!!
The deer have been spotted on site again recently, and the owl continue to hoot and toot loudly at night.
I enjoyed my first night out since Camp Gates opened this month. The choice as to where to go was mine, and I opted for The Polgooth Inn. Being seated under, not around the table the carpet is comfy, I get treats, and my owners are very happy as the food is so good. The Polgooth is very dog friendly, and just as humans like people watching, the Polgooth is good for a bit of dog watching.
We hope to see you soon, and before the end of our season if you can make it. If you have not been before, The Meadows is a small dog friendly campsite in Cornwall, on the edge of Pentewan, and close to Mevagissey. We are ideally placed for walking as there are lots of walks on the doorstep including a walk up to Heligan Gardens on the Pentewan Valley Trail. We are also close to Charlestown, Fowey and the famous Eden Project. The site directly adjoins the Pentewan Valley Trail, which forms part of National Cycle Route 3, and also links up for walkers to the SW Coast Path. We also have bus stops either side of the road, and so this makes holidaying in a motor home much easier.
