Camping and Caravanning in Penzance Cornwall

Cardinney Caravan and Camping Park is a quiet family-run site. They are situated in scenic unspoilt countryside, 5 miles west of Penzance and 5 miles east of Lands End, set back off the main A30 trunk road, and accessed via a private drive. As keen caravanners of many years themselves, their aim is to make your stay at Cardinnney as enjoyable as possible. They have been awarded a 4 star grading from the English Tourist Board and have been selected for inclusion in the Alan Roger’s guide.

They are very easy to reach by staying on the A30 trunk road and following the brown Tourist signs for Lands End, passing Penzance, Drift and Catchall. Five miles after Penzance, they are the first caravan park on the right side of the road.

Elm Cottage Touring Park

Elm Cottage Touring Park
This five star touring park is exactly what is says on the tin. I am sat watching Chris the owner working hard adding more ‘hard standing pitches’ to this already great park.
The layout is roomy and not overcrowded.
There is under floor heating in the toilets and free hot showers a laundrette, two dishwashing areas, chemical disposal point and fresh water.
The rally field can accommodate large rallies and campers. There are some electric points for campers too.
On a Friday and Saturday there is a Fish and Chip van which I am eagerly awaiting.
The owners are owl lovers and have a great Avery with Striped Owls, Eagle Owls etc please view the video.

Elm Cottage Touring Park Owls

Dogs are welcome and offer a great exercise area around the rally field.
Winsford is a short distance away about 4 miles. I nice little town with a shopping centre that stocks all the essentials and more that you will need whilst on your stay.
Delemere Forest a a great visit if you enjoy walking and has a large lake giving a home to all types of wildlife and birds.
The Shrewsbury Arms is a short walk from the site and the food offered is to a very high standard.
All in all a great Park, immaculately clean and tidy, very well run and staff are helpful and friendly not cheap but you pay for what you get.
I cannot recommend this site and location enough.

Unfortunatley you cannot predict the English weather this is how bad it was on the day we arrived.

Dog Friendly Beaches in Cornwall

No Animals were injured in this picture

Here are some dog friendly beaches around the Country.
We all enjoy taking our pets on holiday with us. In summer there are a number of beaches that do not allow dogs on the beach. This can be frustrating and tie you to a campsite or holiday park for your stay.
I have decided to put together Dog friendly Beaches across the Country. If you know any that maybe I am missing please feel free to add on the readers comments and I will add to this page in due course. Beau my dog dug a hole lay in it so we put the sand on him and the scarf. Strange dog just lay there enjoying the cool sand.

This is my dog Beau, he dug a deep whole to escape the heat so we covered him over he stayed here for an hour. nice and cool.

The Motorhome Caravan & Camping Show Excel London

We will be travelling down this weekend to the Motorhome Caravan & Camping Show at Excel London. I will be taking the video camera so if you missed the show check back on the blog and there will be pictures video’s.

We will be travelling from the Midlands.

I was concerned that we would need to pay a congestion charge or low emissions.

No there is no congestion charge to pay and the low emissions starts from 2002 reg and under 2.5 My VW Camper is 2002 and is 2.4 so only just.
