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.

Kilver Court Christmas, Shepton Mallet, Somerset
December 3, 2016
There is one thing that I have really missed since moving from Tonbridge (apart from family of course) and that’s a decent place to visit that sells nice Christmas decorations! We used to go to all the nearby garden centres and they’d have masses of Christmas delights to tempt me, but here in the centre of Somerset, there really isn’t a lot to choose from apart from B&Q and B&Ms. So when I saw that Kilver Court were doing a Christmas evening last Thursday, along with mulled wine, mince pies and carol singing, I had to go! ….
3 Days in Oxford – Day 2. The story of the photographs
October 12, 2016
If you haven’t yet seen Day 1, then you might like to follow this link and come back here later. The morning of my second day in Oxford was mainly spent walking from the Four Pillars Hotel in Sandford-on-Thames along the Thames path into Oxford. I’ve already written a detailed blog with photos about the journey in this post, so I’ll begin here where I left off, entering the city by Christchurch College. I sort-of meandered my way through cobbled streets and past various ancient University buildings until I came out at a place I remembered….

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.’…..
