Autumn holidays by the coast

Posted on: 23rd September 2016

Trevaylor caravan and camping park is preparing to meet and greet its autumn and winter season visitors for holidays by the coast.  As summer draws to a close, we rustle softly into autumn just like summer never left; the sun is still smiling down on us warmly and the winds are gentle on our skin.  Mind you, I’m not sure too much of the summer was always this good anyhow – so to have it like this at the moment is definitely a bonus and a real treat!  Throughout the summer holidays it has been wonderful to see so many people from all over the world and from all walks of life cross over the threshold and in to Trevaylor.  We have been host to families, couples, groups and individuals alike, most of whom come to this particularly wild and rugged part of West Penwith to immerse themselves in the stunning coastal scenery.  The area around Botallack is also richly steeped in mining history and offers one of a very few vistas of such a heavily industrialised past which are actually quite breathtakingly stunning on the eye.   To see the old Wheal houses clinging  to  the cliffs with the tips of the  Atlantic ocean waves lashing at their base stones on a strong south westerly gale drives home the sense of astonishment of what it must have been like for the hundreds of men, women and children who used to work there back in the time of “Poldark”.  Speaking of Poldark, the filming for the third series has just finished on ‘Wheal Leisure’ as it is known in the series – which is actually part of the Wheal Owles Set and is about 500 yards from the Trevaylor campsite.  We were not personally lucky enough to have any sightings of Ross Poldark,  Aidan Turner or Demelza Poldark, Eleanor Tomlinson although it has been rumoured that some of our happy campers were indeed fortunate enough to have caught sight of some of the famed cast of Poldark.  Bookings for July and August 2017 are coming in fast already for our Holiday Homes and Camping Pitches.  Our Bar, Restaurant and most shop provisions will now be closed from Sunday 25th September until some when in March 2017 – but remember the campsite, including accommodation is open 365 days a year for your holidays!  Limited hardstandings available – booking advisable for these.  See you soon.   Charlie, Michelle, Eva and George.
