Our Campsite only holds up to 13-14 individuals, which is usually made up of 4 pitches for couples or families, a pitch for a single person/tent plus the camping cabin, which can accomodate one or two persons. So, although our camping paddock may not look "full" in the photos, it is!
When booking the cabin it is important to remember that only bottom sheets and pillows are provided and you need to bring duvets or sleeping bags. This keeps cleaning and washing minimal for me and the cost minimal for you!
A solar charged lamp is provided in the cabin but a torch is always a good idea on site and although I can provide you with hot water for tea/coffee when I am on-site, your own apparatus gives you more flexibility.
The hot weather may have turned the grass yellow and reduced grazing for the animals at Ashfarm but our neighbour's hedges have been shooting some amazing succulent flowers in response
and we have had to think alternatively for our sheep who have, as an experiment been grazing an agapanthus field. This has reduced the amount of strimming, weeding and mowing that needs to be done by the Bulb Growers and provided our Portland and Zwartble sheep with some much needed 'greenstuff'.
and I just had to take the horses out for some lovely short rides in order to catch some super snapshot views of St Michael's Mount - always best viewed through the ears of a horse....
And there was an unusual use of a camping airbed from the campsite....co-opted as a raft for a race from St Michael's Mount to Marazion beach, for those who live and work on the Mount, for a bit of fun. I was convinced the airbed raft would sink because of the velour covering but I was mistaken. Not only did it not sink but it won!
And finally after the hottest July we have had for years the rain clouds came....
..bringing rain and greenness and grazing at last! Oh and some lovely campers brought me a gorgeous bunch of sunflowers to ensure the sun also came out, even when it was raining.
