Whilst it was a larger site, we thought that it didn’t feel too big as it was nicely laid out with hedges between the rows of pitches and so you don’t look out over a sea of tents and caravans and it feels like there is some degree of privacy. The pitches are mostly laid out in rows with a roadway inbetween and they are of varying sizes. The website helps you to decide what kind of pitch to book. Tents, campervans, motorhomes and caravans are mixed together, which is nice, and there are also a few pitches with hardstanding dotted around the site for larger motorhomes.
This was the second campsite that we visited on our ten night tour of Cornwall. We picked it mainly because of its location, which is within walking distance of Marazion. The name of the site is unusual and fortunately nothing to do with Only Fools and Horses! The name is apparently taken from a former tin mine in the area. The thing that really sold it to us, however, was the picture of a Bongo on the website. (more…)
Of the three sites that we stayed at during our first Cornwall Camping trip I’d say that Bay View was our favourite. It’s small friendly sites in great locations like this that are what got us excited about owning a campervan in the first place. It didn’t have the best on-site facilities, and in bad weather it could feel quite remote, but did I mention the view?
