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.

A review of Comb Beck, a holiday cottage near Keswick in the Lake District; let by Sally’s Cottages
March 29, 2017
A little weekend break was planned as a surprise by Chris, but he knows how I like planning things, so he did actually tell me about it in advance and I helped find somewhere to stay. Sally’s Cottages seems to be the go-to agency if you’d like to book a holiday cottage in the Lake District and I was impressed with their easy-to-use website with plenty of options to tick included whether there’s wifi and if dogs are allowed – our major requirements. I liked the look of Comb Beck, along with its location, so we went ahead and booked it….

3 reasons to be glad of a wet bum
June 22, 2018
Something dawned on me at Glastonbury Festival on the Thursday night last year and this is the story behind it: Rain and I were sitting in a field on our little fold-up seats, surrounded by all sorts of weird and wonderful vehicle creations waiting for Johnny Depp to appear (in actual real life, right in front of us) to introduce The Libertine, soon to be shown on the massive screen in front of the ever-growing crowd. All of a sudden, a woman amongst the group of friends sitting near us jumped up, saying something along the lines of, ‘I think someone’s spilt their drink here – I’ve got a wet bum.’…..

Summer Solstice at Stonehenge + 7 things you need to know for next time
July 4, 2018
Summer Solstice at Stonehenge is something I’ve been wanting to do for years and years. There’s one fundamental problem though: Glastonbury Festival comes right afterwards! And you’re tired enough at Glastonbury without the added exhaustion of being awake through the night before. I’ve never been one of those people (no matter what age) who could just stay up all night and not feel it for the following week! However, this was a fallow year for Glastonbury Festival so we decided to finally do it!…..
