camping in cornwall
I've just returned from the most lovely holiday in Cornwall. Tom and I spent two weeks camping on Gwithian Farm, a site that we had visited the previous year with his family. Over the two weeks we were there we experienced a whole variety of different weather but there was always something fun to do. When it was sunny we visited the beach that was only a few minutes away, we went on walks to try and spot the seals that lived nearby, and barbecued pretty much any food we could get our hands on. When it rained we curled up in our tents and read (I made my way through the Millennium Trilogy and I can't wait to start the last book) or we caught the bus to nearby villages and spent the day in cosy pubs drinking the local ales or in cafes enjoying cream teas. We were lucky enough to visit St Ives on a few different occasions and it definitely is one of my favourite places. One of our friends from University came down to visit us there and it turned out to be such a fun day.
I would highly recommend visiting the same site again as the facilities are great and the staff are so friendly, they even showed all the England matches in their barn! It's also only a few minutes away from a beach, an awesome cafe called Sunset Surf Cafe, and buses stop right outside of it. To top it all off, a pub is located directly opposite it. Perfect!
