 February 2015 News

Ron is busy weeding now with a lot of help from Chris! And indoors we are getting all the bookings done for the summer. The top field is completely full already for the whole of the summer! Woo!! We are having some beautiful weather right now, clear sunny days, although a bit cool...and amazing sunsets. Here are some photos as they speak more than words, perhaps?

Ron often weeds in his top hat, dreaming of one day becoming Lord Lyne!

LOL. We let the pigs mooch around the top field for a bit of a change of scenery .. And the alpacas roaming in the bottom field.

 

And lastly, one of our amazing winter sunsets;

Music @ the Firepit 2014

We are busy booking bands to play at our firepit. This is always fun as we get to hear some of our favourite musicians without having to go out! And it creates a great atmosphere on the campsite, with the fire lit and the music (and Old Rosie!) flowing.. The first this year is going to be the wonderfully talented Jez Hellard and The Djukella Orchestra! .. "Potent songs, silky double bass, fiery fiddling and smoking harmonicas"..

Don't miss out - Sunday May 4th , come on, get your camping gear out :)

 

Thursday 13th March 2014: Weeding Complete!

Ron has finally finished all the weeding and cutting back. It's only taken 2 months!

 

just a few words..

Henry’s is a small, family-run, rural site, with a spectacular sea-view.

We have showers, toilets, hot and drinking water and can freeze ice blocks for you in our shop. The shop sells lots of camping goodies incase you have forgotten anything (from pegs to tents!). We have an on-site cafe called The Galleon. This year we are mainly going to be doing 'Specials' Nights, anything from Curries to fresh, local Fish, to Chilli and Paella Nights. And don't forget Ron's mums little shed - a second hand cavern full of delights!

It is no longer a working farm but we have chickens, guinea pigs, ducks, goats, alpacas and pigs! We welcome families so during holiday periods it will be essential to book.

Dogs are allowed at Easter and then at any other time out of the school holidays. We request that you keep your dog on a leash and do not let it foul on the campsite at all (even if you intend to scoop it), as this encourages others to do so. The site is right next to a suitable footpath for dog exercising. We charge £1 per day per dog.

The site has a tropical feel to it and is ideally situated at the top of Caerthilllian Valley, with the village on the upper side of the farm buildings just a few minutes walk away. There you will find the Post Office, chip shop, pubs, grocer, butcher, gift shops and cafes.

Lovely beaches nearby include, Kynance Cove (30 minute walk – 5 minute drive), Housel Cove (20 minute walk), Kennack Sands and Poldhu Cove (10 minute drives). The coastal walking is fantastic too with The Most Southerly Point and Church Cove and several circular walks right from the campsite.

Within a 20-minute drive, you can also play golf, horse-ride, cycle and dive.

The Lizard is a truly special place and is famous for amongst others things, its geology, botany and bird-life. We try to reflect this uniqueness and hope that you’ll find us a bit ‘different from the rest’.

Please call us to make a booking or email us – we look forward to hearing from you.

 

Campers... even in Autumn! Cosy :)

For the record: at Henrys our bluebells came out on 14th April and we heard the cuckoo on the 19th, it flies over from Africa and lands south of the Lizard, and eventually settles at Kynance/Gew Graze during Spring - early summer.

OLD 2012 PROJECTS - SOON TO BE UPDATED !

 

 

We thought, as you’re all thinking of past summers and looking forward to your next holiday or break, that you might be thinking of what’s going on at ”Henrys”.

So, for all our friends and regular customers, we are going to let you into our eventful winter and spring life, and try to make it simple with a quick spiel:
This is going to be a hot summer and bbq’s galore again—I wish!!
Whilst Jo takes the bookings, sorts out the chart, and does all the chores of running a household, I get the exciting work!
Basically this year, (not mentioning any resolutions!!), I have many projects on the go or in my head, and these projects have deadlines using a calendar month. Sometimes I write a list, that becomes my daily ‘must complete’ list! Yes I bet you’ve all been there (new years resolutions) Well that’s normal for me every year. It’s seeing how far I can keep it going. Anyway with a bit of incentive and the whole world watching, and you now expecting at least one finished project-I cant go wrong! So here we go!.

 

Project 1

The top camping field is having two new parking spaces, at the top.
For now though, wet weather has put a stop to that!

 


Project 2

‘The big weed’, as every year, starts January.
Every pitch is weeded thoroughly once a year trimmed and some new plants added. Weeding consists of removing what I call weeds such as nettles, docks, brambles, and grass, and every other weed is welcome. That overhaul takes me an average of 2 hours a day until March 1st, after that everything grows like mad.

Project 3

I’m in the process since Christmas, of revamping our website. Its been very successful over the years, but a change is needed.

This will happen gradually over the next few weeks - there is a deadline and it’s soon!!

Project 4

Yes- our daughter and friends want a go-kart - I need wheels!

Project 5

Because our community fire pit is getting very popular, we need more seats and to be more cosy. Watch this space for all the action. By the time you see these photos, project 5 will be in its final stages.

 

 

 

 

 

During January’s projects

We make time for ourselves, taking advantage of lonely cliff walks.

Project 6

Acoustic weekend in September – we are having a weekend of acoustic music consisting of afternoon stage entertainment, workshops and jamming evenings at the firepit.
This is a project over the coming months – watch the "Acoustic Weekend" page for more details.
