Okay, so today the weather is a little interesting.  Strong winds and showers with the odd bit of sun thrown in for good measure, with winds set to get VERY strong.  Not the ideal holiday weather.  However, we can moan and groan or we can embrace it and make the most of it and dress accordingly. 
The best Easter we have known with wall to wall sunshine, beautiful dry pitches, and not a soul to enjoy them! Wherever you are, we hope you are safe, happy and well. We hope you are not too lonely and avoiding cabin fever too much.
There is some irony in me writing this blog right now, as we are child free! The girls have gone for a week’s holiday with Nana & Grandad in Norfolk.  Out of the three days they have been gone we have spent two of those evenings in the pub. 
Where is Little Winnick?  To help you get to know the area around us the next few blogs will let you in on our favourite places just a stones throw from Little Winnick. So, let’s start with our nearest village – we are located on the edge of Pentewan, a pretty,  sleepy fishing harbour.
This weekend we welcome a much longed for Bank Holiday and it might, just maybe, even be sunny!  We are excited as our family and friends come to stay for the weekend, and many guests arrive at Little Winnick – the fridge is full and the drinks are already on ice so what does a good bank holiday mean for you?
Hi-de-hi Campers – the 2018 season is well and truly underway and we are very pleased to be welcoming new and returning guests back to our little slice of heaven.  Now to be fair, it didn’t look that heavenly over Easter – the wild, wet weather left us battered and bruised.
Last night our friends at The Lost Gardens of Heligan kindly gave us tickets to see The Rogue Theatre’s latest offering – The Lost Garden Summer Ball.  Cue two very excited little girls who had their fairy and angel dresses laid out ready all week, and every evening we have practised the face painting to perfect our look…

Today Richard and I ate the nicest burger we have had in a very long time.  It was the bite size and free, but it was delicious.  You see today I have been at one of the highlights of my working year – the ExpoWest – where all the best food producers and suppliers come together under one roof to showcase what Cornwall has to offer…
I think when you have children you get a whole new perspective of time; everything flashes past at break neck speed, yet sometimes a day can feel like a lifetime.  This is also true of running a camp site – and in many ways it is your baby, watching it grow into its full potential.
Last night we had the pleasure of enjoying Cornwall at its best; a long warm summers evening, down in the small village harbour of Gorran Haven eating fish and chips.  The beautiful harbour has long been talked about in our family as a great place for tea and a treat, yet we had never made it down there.
