A Holiday in Cornwall as winter’s close approaches

Posted on: 3rd March 2016


Thinking of a holiday in Cornwall? With the Easter break approaching the daffodils are already in bloom here, on the doorstep of Botallack and the Crowns tin mines – one of Poldark’s famed Cornish filming locations. Today I heard they are currently filming near Newquay.  It has been a memorably wet and windy winter season for us– with what feels like an A to Z of storms; although I know we are only up to J so far!  Just the other day winds speeds of up to 100 miles per hour were recorded at Perranporth, a few miles further up the coastline from our nearest town, St Just.  Yet even now we have a couple on site camping in their tent for a few days; and have we have had a steady turnover of units all through the winter making the most of our hardstanding spaces.  Meanwhile, we have been out and about enjoying a lot of what this truly wild and wonderful Penwith Peninsula has to offer too.  Just recently we walked to Carn Euny for the first time – where the remains of an ancient settlement are sited – and one of the largest and best preserved of only a handful of known examples of a ‘Fogou’ to have been found in Cornwall.  We have lunched in our car overlooking Mounts Bay, watching the many kite surfers and wind surfers perform their breath-taking stunts with St Michael’s Mount as a backdrop.  We have walked sections of the rugged South West Coastal Path and seen so many other ramblers along the way; all of us in awe as the storm stirred waves clash with rugged scenery around us.  We have enjoyed coffee and cake at the Minack – the world famous open-air theatre, set into the cliffs beside Porthcurno.  And at Godrevy National Trust Site we observed a wild seal colony.  All through the autumn, winter and heading into the spring, our daughter Eva has surfed Sennen Cove, Praa Sands, Gwithian & even Porthmeor below The Tate in St Ives to name but a few of the beaches.  And on the wettest windiest weekends we headed to the Eden Project and enjoyed ice skating, good food, music, education and entertainment there.  So, you know where you need to come for your holidays this year – come to Cornwall – stay at Trevaylor – see it all – do it all! We are here to welcome you!  Charlie, Michelle, Eva and George
