Wild Camping and homemade pizzas

IMG_6785Our second season is now well underway, and the three of us are really back in the swing of it.

With the Pentewan Valley being such a beautiful spot, and so close to wonderful coastline, and the famous gardens of Heligan and Eden, it is a popular holiday choice.  Our decision to offer something a little different, and really based upon what we like is going down extremely well.

Park & pitch

Park & Pitch – our meadow field was a very popular place to be last year amongst the yellow flag irises, and ragged robin, and to enjoy the last of the evening sunshine. Whilst not wishing to spoil anyone’s fun  down the meadow field is not really a place for cars, and so it is now a car (and children) free zone.  Our campers love this, and indeed quite a few do anyway arrive under their own steam.  Those who don’t park up in the parking bay which has the ingeniously invented “grass protecta” under the grass.  They then have a wander around the meadow field, pick their spot and transport their gear in a barrow.  There are spots right behind the parking area, and as far back as our adventurous campers want to go.

Secluded meadow pitch

Our campers are loving park & pitch. We have a gentleman in his 70s who we offered one of our more formal pitches up field, but no he was not missing out on the meadow experience and was straight to the barrow.  The owls hooting, and tooting, and the hedgehog visiting for his supper, and listening to the dawn chorus, camping does not get much better than that!

Firepits and John’s breakfast baguettes can also be delivered even to the furthest part of the meadow field, and no-one is more than a max 2 minute walk to our top notch shower block.

The Carnival Campers

Up-field – this area is just a bit more civilised, with electricity for those creature comforts.  Everyone’s requirements are different, and so we have pitches to suit everyone and all formal pitches have hardstanding grass.  New tent pitches now have this just for a parking bay.

Kernow Forno pizzasVERY EXCITING NEWS – the first all singing all dancing wood fired pizza cooking date has been confirmed.  The date for the diary is Tuesday 17th June between 5-8pm on site here.  Check out Kernow Forno’s website for an idea as to what gastronomic delights you will be enjoying.

Whilst all advance bookable hook up pitches are booked up for that week, and indeed so really now until post August bank holiday, “proper camping” is still available.  We will charge your phone, ice pack exchange, and there is a hairdryer in the shower block.

Other Meadows News

Mabel Caravan has enjoyed her first guests who had a really fab time.

imageMackerel Fishing – we love mackerel and our first guests to go out this season caught 35!!  On the same day Chris from Aquila dropped off lots for us and our campers and it was a perfect evening for BBQing.

Dog Neckerchiefs & Bunting – our guests have many talents, and we like to find out what they are.  Thanks to Chris & Martin from Lincolnshire, we have lots of new handmade bunting up around the site, in particular between trees.  We are also now stocking this in our shop.  As Harvey gets asked many time by his four legged friends where they can buy a neckerchief from, Chris & Martin are going to make some which should arrive with us any time soon.  We shall have the best dressed units and dogs in Cornwall.Fat dog slim

Bookings – we are still taking enquiries for advance bookings for the summer weeks, but we have very limited availability, and just odd days here and there.  We are just about to change our calendar to fully booked.  When we do so, we will then take enquiries for last minute availability, for campers and tourers.  Of course we never turn away any one arriving under their steam, who also receive a 25% discount. We are a campsite close to Mevagissey and we are “just for adults”.

News from Camp Dog Harvey

This week we have had an unofficial cavalier king charges convention at The Meadows.  Henry, George, Rusty and Jessie.  We have had great fun without breaking the campsite etiquette. All my friends have enjoyed some of my favourite walks, beaches and pubs and are going home very tired, but happy boys and girls. Look forward to you all coming back to see me again.
