Accommodation required for about 12 divers.

Can anyone help?

We were due to go down to the Lizard in Cornwall for a weeks diving holiday, taking our own rib. We were supposedly booked into Kennak Sands caravan park from the 11th September, unfortunately they have just informed us there has been a mix up & they donít have any caravans available now. We have used this place for the last 3 years, and after trying to get a price & a confirmed booking since September last year they now drop this on us.
So now with everyone having the time booked off work and nowhere to go Iím looking for help.
I know there a few divers who come on this forum; Iím hoping someone may be able to suggest somewhere that may be able to accommodate about 12 people and fairly close to a slipway with good local diving.
we would prefer Dorset, Devon or Cornwall but at this late stage in the game anything would be considered.

Have you thought about good old fashion camping with a tent? I know a great site in Corfe, which is near Swanage. If you are interested I'll post more details...

Thanks for the reply Kim,
I donít mind camping but Iím not sure about all the others, I also like Swanage had many a good dive there. I was looking at the slipway on boatlaunch & they want £25 per day, Iíll be giving them a ring tomorrow to confirm the price. (seams a bit steep to me)

I did a few years summer diving on the Lizard, we used to camp on a site just outside a village called Coverack, the site had quite a few static caravans on site unfortunately I can't remember the name. Have a look at the website for Porthkerris divers. They have a superb set-up for divers who dive from RIB shuttles but I'm sure they would be able to offer advice on accommadation. Another good source of info is "Divernet" the web site of Diver magazine. Do a search on their site for the Mannacles or Porthkerris and you will find some articles on the area and maybe some accommadation info.
