We have had a wonderful summer season – made truly wonderful by the myriad of people who have stayed with us at Trevaylor and shared in all the moments, great and small that we have encountered along the way. As autumn takes hold we look forward to embracing the breezes and brisk winds that are often laced with a little rain and maybe a muddle of fog from time to time. We are ready to enliven the senses with our coastal delights as the last of the summer sun sinks into the sea revealing a backdrop of some of the most beautiful sunsets ever to be seen. As always, we are looking forward to meeting and greeting friends old and new to our campsite; and with one of the sets from Poldark right on our doorstep at the moment – I wonder if we will have any sightings of the dashing Aidan Turner or the lovely Eleanor Tomlinson sometime soon? We hope you come and help us find out!
News from Trevaylor
Here comes the summer… With a mixed bag of spring weather behind us lets get the wind in our sails and embrace the holiday period and squeeze in as many beach days, walking days, play days, swim in the sea days, let’s just see days, crabbing days, fishing days, doggie days, sunbathing days, muddling days, and most of all – plenty of lazy days!
Be sure to visit Sennen Cove, The Crowns Mines, The Minack Theatre, Mousehole, St Ives, Porthcurno, Gwenver, Gwithian, Penzance, Trewidden, Trengwainton, Tremenheere and of course, TREVAYLOR to name but a few!
…And don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for ‘Ross’ ladies – as some of you may be aware some Poldark scenes were filmed VERY close to Trevaylor; indeed some of the horse crew actually stayed here during the filming of the first of the new series!
31st May ’15. As May draws to a close we look forward to welcoming in the longer days of June and hopefully some warmer weather as we creep towards summer. Whitsun was wonderful – with the site nearing capacity on the bank holiday weekend. The ebb and flow of a varied spring has kept us on our toes to the last; as I write a day or two of wet and much windiness is due to pass through and yet we had several cases of sunburn during the half term week! The Cornish hedges of Trevaylor are looking naturally beautiful at the moment dressed wild Bluebells, Pink Campions and unfurling bright green ferns along with many other wild grasses and flowers. Every morning and evening scores of wild rabbits can be seen scampering away from their grazing or lazing as you approach through the different camping paddocks. The baby pigeons have now fledged and a family of five magpies have also flown the nest – and now we see the youngster learning the ropes from their parents out and about. Hmmm… And getting ever more cheeky! Out and about the Atlantic is proving a gem – a Humpback Whale was recently seen from the Scilonian and a school of around fifty dolphins seen off the coast of Portheras. We hope to spot you soon!

We had a fantastic Easter here at Trevaylor.
Many came and joined us for the half term – in all variety of accommodation: Some motorhomes, campervans, tourers and tents as well as our holiday homes which were all occupied too.
We thoroughly enjoyed the mix of company we had; our usual climbing groups from various parts of the country, as well as families, individuals and couples, young and old – all here to immerse themselves in the wonderful area of outstanding natural beauty in which we are situated. The beer was flowing plentifully in the bar and we served up plenty of good home-cooked food through the Easter evenings too.
… And in the morning on Easter Sunday we visited all the children on site with a bowl of egg-stra special chocolate goodies – and under the trees I noticed evidence of new life around us; with little pieces of newly hatched dove egg shells in the grass.
As March approaches we are getting a real flavour of the approaching season; the lambs are in the fields now and the daffodils are poking the heads up soon to be in full blossom. The sparrows have got very vocal again and I’ve been aware of their fervent chattering in the bushes – whilst others carry on busily coming and going from the eaves of our shop with strands of hay and bits of moss. Spring is in the air.
We have seen quite a few guests come and go from site – mostly with motorhomes and campervans for a few days at a time – and have also had the pleasure of welcoming a few caravanners for slightly longer periods. Our holiday homes were full for the half-term and it was wonderful to see so many families and friends out and about.
We ourselves took advantage of the beautiful surroundings in which we live and took our kids out for as many day trips as we could. Walking, surfing, cycling, visiting little towns and villages and feasting at a few of the many delightful eating establishments the area has to offer. It’s been a great start… And if we haven’t seen you yet – we hope to see you here soon!
We had a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year here at Trevaylor. The weather has been mainly mild, with a few blowy nights and some rainy days and one frosty morning that I can recall so far.
We have enjoyed some great company during the feastive break; greeting a good many motorhomers, campervanners, caravanners and one trailer tenting couple too! It was lovely to have so many of you here – but now our christmas lights are down again until next Christmas and everyone has gone home.
The site has gone quiet for the moment. Although lots of you are now tuning your thoughts towards the spring and summer – and have booked with us already – so we will certainly look forward to seeing lots of you again soon! And in the meantime if you fancy a little break before then why not come and join us now – and don’t forget we also have our holiday homes available … fully double glazed and centrally heated for maximum comfort!
Happy New Year – Charlie & Michelle
