Marver Campsite

In Mawgan Porth, near Newquay in Cornwall. We stayed there for a couple of nights near the beginning of our holiday.

This campsite is right next to Magic Cove, and my advice would be to pass through Marver and go to that one. It has the same positive points that it is a flat site, and a level short walk to the beach of Mawgan Porth. It actually has more facilities that Magic Cove – a laundrette and sauna – but the toilets were badly in need on updating. You felt like you were doing your business in a brick shed. And they smelt really bad. We were only there for two nights, but in the 48 hours, the bin remained overflowing with paper towels and Chris said that the Men’s loos were really dirty and you couldn’t see a reflection in the mirrors.

Marver’s pitches are slightly bigger, which helped, but it is still a small campsite and don’t expect privacy in the summer holidays. If you still decide to go here, and book in advance, it might be worth asking to have a pitch that isn’t near the toilets. The site is small enough, so it won’t be too far anyway, and I really felt sorry for the people in the corner as they had everyone traipsing past their tent entrance to go up to the loo all the time. And if they were light sleepers, they wouldn’t have appreciated the very loud crunch of the stoney path either!

Showers were on a 10p meter (though they looked horrible, so no idea how long you get). We’d paid in advance and never saw the owners, so no idea if they were friendly or not. They left a piece of paper up so we knew where to pitch. It cost £32 for 2 nights on electric hook up for 2 adults and 2 children.

7 ways to survive a family road trip – holidays with kids advice!

Are you going on a road trip with your kids? Does the thought of going on holiday with children fill you slightly with dread? Well, worry no more – I’m here to help you out! Our first family road trip was back in 2002 when our daughters were seven and four years old and we did the classic California route that’s become very popular recently: Los Angeles then travel along the coast to San Francisco; to Yosemite national park; through Death Valley to Las Vegas; to the Grand Canyon; to San Diego for Seaworld then back to LA for Disney Land. And that was pre Sat Nav – I can still hardly believe we did all that with paper maps! Anyway, since then we’ve done a variation of that loop three more times and several camper van holidays in the UK from long weekends to a three-week tour of iron-age sites. Last year we drove from Washington DC to Orlando via Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. I feel that we’ve got pretty good at road-tripping by now……
