Reclaim The Canvas

What does camping mean to you? Let me give you a bit of background to what camping means to us and how that helped shape our vision for Higher Pendeen Camping. My first experience of camping, like many other people was in the back garden. As a youngster in the early 1980s, I have fond …

Self Care Camping

People have many different perceptions of what makes the perfect holiday and each one is correct! My mother always told me ‘a change is as good as a rest’ and she was not wrong. A change of scenery, a change of pace, a change in the senses, a change of routine, trying something new, all …
