We are very nearly there with the ladies toilet block, here are some photos of the journey that started at the beginning of January!! Almost ready for our reopening on the 1st MARCH 🙃🥳 (the end coming ……. soon 🤞)
News from Trevaylor
This years dates announced as 17th – 19th April 2020. Visit the wonderful Porthleven Food Festival while combining it with a relaxed stay at Trevaylor in one of our luxury self – catering caravans, holiday cottage or on one of our touring pitches.
Porthleven is only 20 miles/30 minutes from us, so having (over?) indulged, you can enjoy a wonderful walk or two on the coastal path that will be adorned with wildflowers in April and just across the road from the campsite, therefore making the trip calorie neutral! 😉
Cornwall has its charm, its history and its beauty in bucketfuls. For those intrepid explorers who want to go further, be adventurous and traverse it’s enchanted castles, hike it’s wild moors and dive into it’s turquoise coves, southern Cornwall is the place to do it.
This year was our first real taste of what Cornwall has to offer, and to tell the truth we have not been disappointed by our choice to relocate our family to this special place. We have found there is always something new to do, to try or places to explore here in Cornwall, our children have such a wide variety of activities and interests, here they are spoilt for choice.
Hiking – one of the most exciting trails in Britain, The South West Coastal Path
Cycling – wonderful B roads for on road enthusiast or off road trails for those who like to be off the beaten track.
New signs were picked up on Friday from St Ives signs, which was so exciting. Our wonderful Gary did all the artwork from concept to production (is there anything this man can’t do!) and they just look amazing – thank you Gary. We have managed to drill, rivet (that was interesting – sore thumbs all round!) two of the signs into position, two more to go.
Its been nearly 6 weeks since we took over at Trevaylor from Charlie and Michelle and we are so enjoying it! As a family we wanted a new adventure and we are certainly getting one!! The children are loving the location of the park, close to the lovely beaches, where we can go surfing, and enjoy all that these stunning beaches have to offer. And, the wonderful coastal footpath 400m from our doorstep, we have been walking to Cape Cornwall and Sennen in one direction and Levant and Pendeen lighthouse in the other. We have welcomed lots of backpackers doing the coastal path and many old and new campers to Trevaylor in our short time here.
Autumn has well and truly set it, or should I say blown in. And with it we have heard tale of rare birds visiting – recently our bird watchers were getting very excited about a ‘Cat Bird’ sighting – one of only two ever to have been seen in the UK. Summer played host to a particularly high number of less rare creatures – the ‘Holiday Maker’ – often regularly spotted right here at Trevaylor Caravan and Camping Park! But I have to say, they did flock from far and wide – the trio of riders pictured above were from Germany; the other two members of their family were following behind on a tandem.
Take a break
Take a break this autumn. Come and visit the West Penwith and Land’s End Peninsula. Enjoy the shopaholoics delights of St Ives for a spot of retail therapy and then kick back and relax in our friendly little bar in the evenings and enjoy a pint of local ale and a nice home cooked meal… Our bar is still open right until the end of September. Stroll along the uncrowded beaches and enjoy the satisfying glow of an autumnal sunset over the Atlantic Ocean.
Take a hike
Making hay while the sun shines….
Preparing our summer paddock for July and August arrivals. A local farmer making hay from the long grass that needs to be cut short ready for camping.
As the Spring Bank holiday weekend and half-term approaches we are all set to receive a full house of guests here at Trevaylor Caravan and Camping Park, in the far west of Cornwall. The Tin Coast which site on the door step of our lovely little family run campsite is in glorious bloom with both spring and summer flowers of all kinds. The cliffs are awash with bright yellows of the gorse and pinks and whites of Campions and of course the carpets of Thrift are taking shape quite nicely too. The wild garlic is just receding now and being superseded by the deep blue-purple of the late bluebells.
Bring on the Bluebells to cheers us up!
I am waiting for the bluebells to pop their heads up and say hello – I just love the carpets of blue that appear around our cliff tops at this time of year and coupled with the swathes of the delicate pink of the thrift it really can be a sight to behold.
Easter was a bit of a wash out. It has been one of the wettest late winter/early springs we have had here at Trevaylor Caravan and Camping Park here in West Cornwall. That being said we still had a reasonable turnout – we had some of our regular climbing groups in and plenty of Easter holiday makers on our hardstandings.
