Cali has been to St Mawes

We booked a long weekend at Merrose Farm Caravan Club Site at St Mawes for the Bank Holiday weekend.  We had previously visited the site many years ago when we had our caravan, but thought we would see what the site was like with Cali.  The location is perfect, a short walk to the coast path and it also has a bus stop outside the main entrance with regular buses between Truro and St Mawes.

We arrived around mid-day on and had a lazy afternoon on the site.  On Saturday morning we caught the bus to St Mawes (every two hours - £5.10 return) and did a lovely circular walk to St Just in Roseland returning on the coast path to St Mawes.

The town was busy when we got back as there was gig racing as part of the Fal Festival, but we managed to get a seat outside the Rising Sun pub to watch all the activity!  The weather had been glorious all day, but very humid so it wasn't too much of a surprise when we had a thunderstorn overnight which lasted about three hours.  Needless to say, neither of us got much sleep.

On Sunday we walked to the coast and decided to walk both ways along the coast path, mainly because we wanted to see how many more walks we could do when we return to the area and also because the forecast wasn't too good so we didn't want to walk too far from the site. 


In the morning we walked along the coastpath to the headland beyond Portscatho, stopping off at The Hidden Hut - a fabulous beach cafe with amazing cakes!  We then retraced our steps and walked to Pendower Beach and a pot of tea at the Shallikabooky Beach Hut before returning to Cali.

Monday morning was beautiful and sunny so we had breakfast outside and a lazy morning reading the papers before heading home.

We loved the site and we now know we can do plenty of walking in the area, either walking from the site or using the local bus.  Definitely a site for us to return to next year.
