    Just got back from Malvern after a few detours, had a great time and met some great people, really impressed with the Funsters band.

    Now planning a slight detour after the Lincoln show, travelling back to Scotland via Cornwall. Any suggestions for good campsites near the Cornwall coast, north or south coast. Prefer small sites with good walks etc.

    I'd have detoured TO Lincoln from Malvern!

    Everyone in Scotland must be saying "future a bit uncertain" ;)

    Uncertain! Until we put Wee Eck and Nippy Sweetie (Alec Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon) back in their box and nail it down firmly life will continue to be uncertain.
    The only guarantee is that when they lose the vote on 18 Sept they will not be long in trying again.

    I will share our secret campsite with just you, John and Sue - don't tell anyone else though ;)

    http://gwithianfarm.co.uk/

    It's not small but it's beautifully landscaped and only a 5 minute walk through the dunes to the beach. There's a great pub at the entrance too.

    I'm at Treloan, next to the village of Portscatho, which I heard about on this Forum. It is on the Roseland peninsula just below Truro. About two hours drive past Plymouth.
    Right on the coastal path, shops and pubs a short stagger away. But poor mobile connect, I'm just about connected using a mifi with an external aerial on the roof.
    Watched the tall ships leaving Falmouth this afternoon.
    Site is fairly busy but not full.

    Blimey that's some detour!!! :think: I Love Cornwall and it is just a hop skip & jump for me so have stayed at a few sites but 3 you might like to think about as well as Gwithian are:

    Ayr Holiday Park, St Ives - Not cheap but stunning views and on the coastal path
    http://www.ayrholidaypark.co.uk

    Penrose Holiday Park - Reasonably priced, friendly and plenty of places to explore
    http://www.penroseholidaypark.com

    Tristram Camping - Feels like you are camping on the beach and plenty of walks however when I visited around 12 months ago the toilet & shower facilities could certainly have done with some TLC

    Don't forget Doubletrees Farm Caravan Site near St Austell. Lovely quiet site near to a bus stop and overlooking St Austell Bay.

    The Inn, Bedruthen, just north of Mawgan Porth. Small, overlooking sea, best beach in the world if you can cope with the very scary steps.
    The Inn has great food.
