    We took Amanda to the Eden project a few weeks ago, carried onto Newquay and upto Bude. Most sites along the coast were closed or ground to wet got stuck a few times.

    Ps. Amanda wants to know if you are ok and still in one piece:BigGrin: she sends her love and looks for her picture with you everyday before she enter's the arcade.

    Best wishes Kate x

    Its alway's winter in Cornwall, according to some of our recent visitors! :Eeek:

    Most of our trees, buildings and people are bent over at a 30º angle due to the constant gales of wind blowing. :Sad:

    We were there in March. The site is a 20-30 minute walk from the centre of Padstow. When we were there a lot of work was being done to improve the site.

    On the unimproved part (where we were) the hardstandings were small and not wide enough to enable you to enter/exit the van without standing in mud, and the toilet block was closed.

    The updated part of the site was much better the pitches large and easily accessed. The new toilet block was superb.

    If the rest of the site has been brought up to the same standard then I would have no problem recommending it. If the work has not been completed then make sure you get on the new bit
