Half-term heaven

Phew....what a busy half-term week we have had. The campsite was full......remembering that full for us is 15-18 persons or 4 families and a couple........on several nights, but still enough space not to feel cramped.
There were children, campfires, the slack-line went up, the hammock got a swing and sunshine, sunshine, sunshine!

It was a wonderful week and some super families camped with us, all nationalities too, who mingled and mixed and shared information.
We had some great campfire stories and some spectacular smells coming from the barbeques and campfire cooking.
Personally, I would like to say a huge thankyou to everyone that has camped this week, because it feels like we have been on holiday ourselves and we haven't had to go anywhere!
Big tents too this week, bigger than our cottage in the village some of them. And for a couple of days there was a strong northerly wind to contend with, but the tents all stood tall and safe and not a drop of rain!
The kids got a few treats, grooming the shetland and having a little ride on him, but they also helped with chores, feeding the menagerie and picking up poo in the paddock!
We do not offer helping-with-chores as part of the 'camping package' but, if we are around and doing them and it seems appropriate, then often kids can join in. (But it is not a promise, so please do not be too disappointed if it we are too busy or it doesn't seem appropriate to us)
Popular visits this week that everyone talked about were:-
Higher Trenowin Farm Shop
St Michael's Mount
The Minack Theatre
Port Isaac (best fish and chips ever apparantly)
Geevor Mine
Gwithian Beach from the Bluff
Porthcurno Beach
Mount's Bay Beach
St Ives
Penhalwyn Trekking Centre
