Sorry for all the wet weather our new year campers experienced this year – just to show that we do have lovely weather even in winter – I took this photo today from the South West Coast Path approximately 1 mile from our campsite.
This is worth a read for a giggle. When I spent some time in the States, we spent many an evening with Americans making fun of each other’s quirks – such similar cultures, yet so different!
“Me chased all seagulls away Mummy” – the fun of being a two year old living in St Ives!
The windows are in and the plasterers are working away inside, so Sunset Cottage is slowly but surely transforming into a beautiful Cornish cottage. Just need to make a start on the farmhouse we’re living in yet (still no heating and winter is creeping closer…!!)
Some happy campers relaxing in the September sun!
Why not visit St Ives when it provides 2 weeks of solid entertainment in the form of music, art, workshops and comedy? From Saturday 12th – 26th September 2015 there will be something to suit all tastes, so have a look at the website and choose the best time to come:
Staying with us will mean that you can avoid the crazy town centre traffic and walk or take the bus into St Ives. We still have a few camping pitches and static caravans available for this fortnight so please email or phone us for prices (firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 01736 795738)
In between the miserable rainy days, we were blessed with this stunning view from the coast path at the weekend. This photo was taken 5-10 minutes walk along the footpath from our camping field.
Just a bit of advice to help all the food lovers avoid disappointment when you holiday in St Ives. Due to the popularity of St Ives during summer months, it is often difficult to book restaurants at the last minute. We advise that you research the local restaurants several weeks before you arrive if you want to have your pick of where to eat. If you’re anything like us, it’d make you very grumpy if you were hungry and couldn’t find a restaurant with any availability!
Our most interesting camper this week was this chap (the big one, not our little mascot!) who is nearing the end of an enduring walk from John O’ Groats to Land’s End and decided to camp at Hellesveor for a well earned night’s rest.
It’s been a stressful few months getting ready for our summer campers, but we’ve finally got sparkling new facilities for our guests to use. Everyone who has camped here recently has been so supportive and positive about what a beautiful location Hellesveor is and how much of a great job we’re doing (one group even brought some beers over for Andrew and the builders!). Meeting such lovely people is certainly making all the hard work worthwhile.
Just a couple of arty photos our builder took after work today…
