Hendra Holiday Park

In Newquay, Cornwall. If you’ve left it till the last minute, and suddenly decide you want to go on holiday to Cornwall; you may find this review of useful.

We only stayed here for 3 nights during the Run To The Sun festival back in May; but any impartial opinion is a good one! It doesn’t look it on the map, but it is very conveniently close to the main part of the town; though not in walking distance to any beaches unfortunately. But very handy for the drive-thru Macdonalds and the Safeways.

The staff were friendly and very well equipped for the seasonal rush with plenty of staff on hand to help and get you sorted as quickly as possible.

The site itself is absolutely massive; mostly with stationary caravans, but we were tenting it, so I can’t really tell you what the caravans were like. There’s an indoor fun pool and an outdoor pool in site, but do come at an extra charge. I don’t remember exactly what it was, but it was cheaper than my local pool. There’s a decent adventure playground with things for different ages, which was nice. There were also a couple of picnic tables in that area. There’s also an additional playground which just had a bouncy castle on it, that you had to pay for. There’s a supermarket, arcade, bar and beer garden and laundrette. There was also a free kids club running every day with discos and all kinds of kids activites, including one day with a visit from a petting zoo. For a family week away when the parents just want to sit outside and read a book, this was a great place to stay.

Oh and the toilets were clean, but a bit of a queue for showers in the morning, so you’ll have to get up early for those if you’re going at peak season.

On the whole this was a very good value fo rmoney place to stay. It was one of the cheapest campsites I found in the area, but with loads more facilites. It’s for families and couples only, so it’s not too loud at night. And there was a bus stop right outside the campsite for those wanting to enjoy Newquay’s nightlife. The only major downside is there wasn’t a great deal of privacy. The caravans were all in rows, reasonably close together, so I wouldn’t have felt comfortble sharing all our family holiday arguments with everyone else.

Glastonbury Festival 2017 – Review & photos
July 15, 2017
Yes, I know it’s a bit late in the day, but I think I’ve written a review of every Glastonbury Festival since this blog began, so I can’t break with tradition can I? This was the first year I vlogged the whole event, so I’ve been intensely editing all the hours of footage I came home with, so please click the link if you’d like to watch the video. Anyway, Glastonbury 2017 will definitely go down as one of my favourites and I have to be honest, that’s mainly due to the perfect weather! I don’t go for the bands – if you’ve been to Glastonbury Festival, you’ll know it’s about so much more than the music, and it’s almost impossible to explain why……
5 Ideas to do in October
October 15, 2016
1. Kick some leaves. Next time you’re on your way to work, walking the kids to school, or generally going about your day, and you spy a pile of leaves at the side of the pavement; kick it! Go on! Even if there are people about to see; scatter those leaves in the air! (Just make sure there are no small children nearby you might accidentally kick in the face. And make sure the foot not in the air has secure purchase on the ground – not on a wet slippery leaf. See? I struggle with letting go.)…..
Muchelney Abbey, Somerset – the story of the photographs
February 26, 2017
Last July my parents came to stay for a few days and as they are recent members of English Heritage, we looked around for local attractions near me in Somerset. Muchleney Abbey is (unsurprisingly) in the village of Muchelney on the Somerset levels with the nearest town being Langport. It’s in a beautiful peaceful spot, and the perfect location for a picnic, but as we didn’t come prepared, we bought ice creams from the little shop there, and then found a cute place for afternoon tea further down the road afterwards. Although the south cloister is still intact, sadly as usual, Henry VIII is to blame for the ruined state of the rest of the abbey. It is the Tudor Abbott’s house that can be explored properly….
