    Hi there again friends at MHFun
    Planning a couple of months in Cornwall in April/May/June and am looking for recommendations for the best (and friendliest) sites for a single guy and his lovely dog in a 29ft Sea Breeze.
    Many thanks in advance
    Jules :BigGrin:

    Hi

    We have stayed here and can recommend it. It is the home of Itchyfeet and if you need any thing for your RV they can help you. The pitches are designed for RVs and the people are friendly and helpful. :thumb:

    The restaurant on site is also very good.

    No good dog walks around the site though, Also along way from the nearest beach if you have no transport.

    Hello Jules our RV is 32 ft and we stayed at Carlyon Bay Camping and Caravan Park, St Austell. Nice site lots of space 2 swimming pools, food on site half mile walk to beach . Bus stops close, 10 min bike ride to Eden project, bus ride to Lost Gardens of Heligan and St Austell.
    Cheap stay if you buy camping cheques

    we go to Kernow every year and use the site at Presingoll barns in St Agnes. they have a couple of big hadrstanding pitches with plenty room to turn round. Its next to the pressingall barns outlet shop so ok for a gifty shopping trip and they have a restautant.

    Its 10 mins walk into Aggy and he cliffs and coast path are there for the taking.

    Take you binoculars.

    St Agnes Beacon

    When we were wardens at St Agnes we used to tell all the members - "Take your binoculars on a cool frosty morning - go up the Beacon and look south toward St Ives.
    Measures off two fingers width into the sky above St Ives, set your binoculars on 'infinity' and if it is a very special morning the next thing you will see will be 'America' :thumb: It has to be a very, very special morning, though :Eeek:

    And - yes - we did have a few people try it - but I am still living so they must have seen the joke, in the end!

    Hiya Julian & Shay! :BigGrin: long time no see, lol

    I'd just posted a message on here about 'cheaper ways of getting down to cornwall'
    then saw your post! :BigGrin: and went.. Hmmmm I wonder? :Blush: haha..

    how are you guys :)

    It's me Sam, formally of GazznSam.. but we split up last year. :Mellow:

    I also have photos of Shay, that I took at the stratford motorhome show ages ago.. will have to dig them out for you :BigGrin:

    anyway about me wanting to find a cheaper way of getting to St Austell in Cornwall..

    I'd like to go down to cornwall with my boyfriend Jason to see his family, who he hasnt seen in 3 years, for cheaper than £100+.

    as its £138 each from Nottingham, via birmingham to St Austell, which is crazy really for a train. lol :Doh:

    so I thought i'd ask you if we could hitch a lift with you if possible?, when you deside to goto cornwall, as your heading that way anyway, :Blush: :BigGrin:

    why I ask you, is that Getting from Nottingham to London isnt that bad, as the cheapest i've found for train travel is £14 for a single. then from london to cornwall is where it gets daft hence me wanting to find a better way of getting over there. lol :RollEyes:

    I'll even throw in a big juicy bone for shay.. :thumb:

    I hear It's nice in st austell, but i've no idea if theres any where for you to stay? :Doh: as i've never been there myself, lol
