Do you want to find a sandy beach ?

Posted on: 18th April 2017

A secluded Sandy Beach in Cornwall

This wonderful secluded sandy beach lies within 3 miles of our lovely family run campsite.  So, if you want to be somewhere like this, far from the madding crowd on your holidays, you can be!  You just need to get yourself booked in with us at Trevaylor Caravan and Camping Park.   Once you have arrived  here and settled in, we can point you in the right direction to get  yourself immersed in some of  the wonderful scenery  that awaits for you  right on our doorstep.  Literally.  We are around 400 meters away from ‘Wheal Leisure’ – ‘Ross Poldark’s’ Mine.  Indeed we have had the horse stunt team staying with us for the filming of one of the series.  From these old ruins you can walk along the South West Coastal Path to the left – where you will pass through the Kenidjack Valley and come upon Cape Cornwall with its little tidal pool at Priest’s Cove.  Walk out to the right from ‘Wheal Leisure’ (Wheal Owles) and the famous Crown Mines and you will come upon Levant Mine with its restored Beam Engine which runs on steam.  On beyond from there you will come to Geevor Tin Mine – a great place for children and adults of all ages to learn about Cornwall’s great tin mining heritage.  After a cuppa and a homemade pasty perhaps at their glass ended café overlooking the rugged coastline, you can then go on to explore along to Pendeen Light House and further still if you are feeling hungry for more exploration and adventure.  Come and see us soon and find out all about it.

Visit Cornwall

Anytime of year is always an exciting time of year to visit Cornwall –  but spring time can be a particularly rewarding experience. Right now we are immersed in intense yellow blooms of gorse – it is unimaginably impressive. The cliffs are dressed in great swathes and patches of deep golden yellow.  The air is heady with their scent which is delightful.  The pretty pinky lilac Thrift is coming into flower and will no doubt soon carpet the cliffs too.  The Thrift will be studded with blooms of Primroses, Bluebells, Daisys, Gorse, Heather and many other plant species particular to this area.  Yesterday I saw a baby slow worm on the path and a Falcon sitting watchfully, high in her annual nesting position in an old joist hole in one of the many ruined Wheal Houses along the way.  The stretch of South West Coastal Path where you can be lucky enough to see all of this as you pass over the sea lined cliffs tops is just 400 meters away from our lovely family run campsite. …And who knows you might even bump into Aidan Turner or Eleanor Tomlinson aka Ross and Demelza Poldark on your travels; as filming for some of the series also takes place directly extremely close by. Then,  after an absorbing day exploring out in our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty what better way to relax and unwind than to come and join us for an evening in our bar over a pint of local real ale or a glass of wine and a great meal of your choice from our menu, followed by a delicious homemade pudding. Finnish off the night with a moonlit stroll back to your tent, tourer or motorhome or even one of our luxury holiday homes. See you soon.  Charlie, Michelle, Eva & George
