Cornwall, a complete blowout!

Following a brief stop at the NEC for the motorhome and caravan show we headed down to Cornwall for a short family holiday.

Unfortunately the bump is playing havoc with my immune system and storm Brian was intent on ruining our trip. There was no chance of erecting the new awning that we recently purchased in 30 mph winds! 

We found a great private site, Doubletrees Camping, St Austel in Cornwall. With spectacular views of the sea we were also within 2 miles walk of the Eden Project which was the main reason for the visit.


However, the exposure was the downfall with the site as when the winds picked up we were buffeted from every direction!

Amazingly our daughter slept through it but we had a very sleepless night and bailed out the following day cutting the journey short. 

We did, however, make it to the Eden Project which was superb and I would thoroughly recommend! 


Having only purchased the rig in May this is the first ‘bad weather’ we have really experienced. I don’t want to say that we will be fairweather motorhomers but perhaps next time we need to be more mindful of our choice of site and ensure we have some good shelter. All lessons learnt.
