During the last few days, The Meadows Team has tripled in size. We have been delighted to welcome “The Girls” (our gorgeous chickens) to The Meadows Campsite.
We are still to name the chucks as we are working out their personalities. John, CD Harvey, and I are to name two each. CD has put forward gravy and bread-sauce for his two ;), but he has been told that he must be nice, and come up with some better suggestions.
Already we have had 3 eggs and they only arrived yesterday, which is a fantastic start, so go girls!!
The girls seems to love their new home, which John made from leftover wood, and I painted and put the hen sign up. They also seem to like their pitch by the stream with a good view over the campsite. The idea is that the girls can watch the campers, and the campers can watch the girls.
Today we welcomed the gorgeous Mrs Robinson on site, with her two occupants who are spending the last couple of days of their holiday here. It was our sign with the yellow camper van that enticed Mrs Robinson, on their way for some camping Mevagissey style. It looks so apt here, it would be rude not to put her picture on our website. Mrs Robinson is available for hire from www.cornishcampers.co.uk.
Heligan Gardens – are coming alive at this time of year, and Kate Humble did a book signing there this week.
Eden Project – This weekend for the first time ever they are letting dogs visit. If you and your pooch are still undecided as to what to do this weekend why not go to see the Eden gardens as they are looking fabulous. Heligan are dog friendly all year round.
Kings Wood Restaurant – just up the road from us at London Apprentice came to see us this week with their new menu. It all looks delicious, and you can walk there from our site along the Pentewan Valley Trail. Wednesday night is the ever popular Steak & Seafood night. The car park is always full lunchtime and evenings, so that is a very good sign. You can even walk back, though you might want to take a torch if you intend making a late evening of it.
The Pentewan Valley Trail is looking really lovely and full of bluebells. Our guests are all enjoying the walk down to the Village, a stroll on the beach, dinner at The Ship Inn, and then walking it off back to camp. Those making a “walking day” have walking to Mevagissey on the Pentewan Trail, and then returning along the coastal path.
We do still have availability for the summer season and if you would like to book please contact us here, or by telephone 01726 844383. We cater for motor homes, tents (all shapes and sizes) and caravans. We are also dog friendly and campfires are allowed provided they are off the ground. To assist we hire out fire-pits, which all you have to do is light and enjoy. For your own fires, we can also supply wood. Our campsite is ideal for camping close to the lovely town of Mevagissey and camping close to Pentewan Sands Beach and we are a small friendly site.
