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…)
With spring supposedly sprung, Tom had been keen to get out in the camper van for a few weeks. Up until yesterday I had been able to put him off, but with the sun shining, my bad weather excuse would work no more (I don’t mind admitting to being a “fair weather” camper) and we set off on our first camping trip of the year, a last minute trip to Fen Farm.
As we live within an hour of Mersea Island, we had been there before and wanted to go back for a better look around so we phoned up to book for Saturday night.
As we arrived quite late in the evening, by the time we had made dinner, it was starting to get dark and so we ambled down to the beach, which is just next to the site and sat there until it got properly dark before retiring to the van with a bottle of wine. The site was quiet by 10pm in accordance with the rules and we didn’t hear anything until the next morning when we had time for a quick paddle after our bacon butties, before leaving the site
