According to one guest Little Winnick performs a bit of ‘magic’ on children! As a family returned for their second stay of the year their youngest learnt to ride her bike, after her sister did the same a month earlier. I think it is because we are so flat that adds that magic to learning a life long skill. Bring the bikes for the little ones and they could be whizzing around in no time without stabilzers! If you don’t want to bring your bikes but fancy a ride then you can hire your bikes from Pentewan Cycle Hire who will even deliver them to reception for you.
Now there has not been the usual blogs as I have been away. I left ‘poor’ Richard by himself whilst I went to a birthday party and family visiting up country. We had a lovely time, but I am not so sure Richard is pleased to have me back, not so much of the ‘poor’ as he seems to have got fed better from his Mum whilst I was away than when I am back!
What a time it has been for the country with political leaders dropping like flies and now the exit from Euro 2016. It suddenly has made a change from the usual conversations we have in reception about the weather. In all this turmoil it is worth remembering that down here in Cornwall we are not changing; offering the usual great value for money coupled with high standards across the park. When opting for a ‘Stay-cation’ at least you don’t have to be worried about an ever changing Euro, whether your flight/ferry will delayed or even take off due to strikes. All you need to consider is when is the best time to attempt the A38/A30 to us and whether we have a pitch available.
On the roads – I went up the A30 on my departure and dared venture back into Cornwall on a Saturday down the A38. Despite everyone telling me I was mad and it would be busy we had an amazing run. I think it is all about timing and listening to the travel news. We left early and when we heard there were delays on the A30 on Saturday we opted for the A38. If you arrive early for your stay with us we will always try and get you on your pitch if we can after it has had it’s grass cut etc. But if we can’t get you on we do have a ‘Early Arrivals’ area, a large area with a hook up point which you are welcome to wait in until we can get you on your pitch.
The Wild Flower Meadow is really coming into it’s own this year. I had a rather interesting Saturday checking in a large number of medieval dressed guests a few eeks back. The meadow played host to a 50th Birthday Party with a Medieval Theme. With a huge hog roast from local butchers and supplier of our meat Kittows, bell tents, and even a bit of jousting there was, yet again a very special feel to the field. I don’t know what it is but there is something magical about it down in the meadow. It you are staying do go for a walk around the field – if provides a very different feel to Little Winnick.
As the weather begins to hot up so does the massive amount of things on around Cornwall. Over the next few blogs I will be covering various things on for your to enjoy whilst staying, this week it is all about: Theatre
