9. April Ayr Park, St Ives, Cornwall

April 2011 Ayr Park St. Ives Cornwall

We came here last year for a few days and had such good weather and such a good time, we thought we should repeat it. I’ve read site reviews for Ayr Park which say it isn’t worth the expense but to  us it’s money well spent. The views are astonishing and it’s so close to the town centre – downhill ten mins, back a bit longer….. and if you wanted those views from a hotel or B and B it would cost such a lot. Okay, you get a bit spoiled if you have a service pitch where you can drain your water, hook up and have water, and no-one really needs fabulous loos and showers with hairdryers and underfloor heating but it’s nice to have a bit of luxury now and again. We got the train to Penzance and had a day out there, went with friends to the gardens at Trebah, had a day out around Helford and ate loads of pasties.

This is the view from our pitch. The walks from the site along the coast to Zennor are stunning, even if you only walk a little way to Clodgy Point and watch the seabirds and the waves. I could go on about the attraction of St. Ives but there are better places to read about those than here. It’s a charming place and the light is amazing- ‘nuff said (except that we had fantastic weather again and we extended our stay!)
