Up a creek with a paddle….

Kayaking in Cornwall

Heading towards Lerryn

Well we thought we would make the most of the weather yesterday, so once again we loaded the kayaks on top of the car and this time headed to Fowey. We launched from a little beach called Readymoney Cove and paddled up the river exploring the beautiful tree-lined creeks which can only be seen and got to by water. We arrived at the beautiful little hamlet of Penpoll where we were greeted by huge shoals of Mullet darting around our kayaks! (some of which were huge,if only I had my fishing rod)

After taking in the peacful surroundings of Penpoll we headed back to the main river and on to the next creek which takes you to another lovely village called Lerryn, this is a great spot to kayak too as the local pub has a slipway so you can land your kayak and have a pint! Unfortunately all good things must come to an end (apparently), and so it was we had to head back down the river and on to home, but one thing is for certain, we will be going back and hopfully with a small tent and bbq so we can camp out on one of the lonely creeks for the night.

There goes Ellen Redgrave!!!

Having lived in Cornwall since forever, I have been lucky enough to have seen many of the delights that the county has to offer, but I have to say I think the views and the countryside that we saw yesterday were among the very best, and I highly recommend going and seeing this lovely part of Cornwall…..

So if you are looking for a bit of adventure whilst on holiday down here, then you really should consider hiring a kayak from one of the hire centres in Fowey and exploring this stunning tidal river for yourself, the paddling is easy and ideal for beginners, and as days out go this is one of the best, unfortunately the photos I took on my mobile really do not do it justice. (you can also see our route as we tracked it via strava)

2015 Season Nearly Here!

I cannot believe it is that time of year already! Trevarth will be opening it’s doors to our first customers of 2015 in a little over 2 weeks. As always it is all go here at the moment trying to get the park ready. We have added a few more hard standing pitches for our touring customers, but the best news for our tourers and campers is the addition of central heating in our toilet blocks! This is going to make a huge difference to our early and late season customers.
The big news for our holiday home customers is the arrival of two brand new units both offering full central heating. The new units are fantastic! One is a 3 bedroom unit making it ideal for larger families visiting early/late season. The other unit is a 32ft 2 bedroom holiday home making it very spacious, and has plenty of extra touches that give a real feeling of class. To find out more information on these vans click here and check out the Cedar+ and the Aspen 2015.

I look forward to seeing you guys soon!

Trip to the Seaside!!!

A beautiful Cornish Beach

A beautiful Cornish Beach

It is this time of year that we get the chance to really appreciate the beautiful county of Cornwall that we are so lucky to live in.

We had some lovely weather at the weekend so made the most of it. Whilst our eldest son Jack played rugby aginst Famouth, the rest of us thought we would visit Maenporth beach.

There are some lovely little coves around this area and the countryside just inland is absolutely stunning. Well worth a visit!!!

Peace and Quiet Returns!!!

Cornwall is great for dog walking!

The summer has gone and autumn has arrived, but the sunshine has remained! Peace has descended once more to the county after a busy summer and Trevarth’s atmosphere has taken on a new feel.

I always have mixed feelings at this time of year as I enjoy the buzz you get around the place when the children are down over the summer holidays, but it is nice to be able to take a breather, and enjoy the calm and relaxing atmosphere that has once again returned to the park.

September is definitely one of the best times to visit Cornwall if you like to see the sites, with quieter roads and the weather remaining warm it makes for enjoyable and easy days out, and if you do feel a nip in the air there is always a nice hot Cornish pasty just round the corner waiting to warm you up!
