Carlyon Bay Caravan & Camping Park

Just got back from a holiday in St Austell Cornwall with various boats and toys, some family and an assortment of friends et al. Stayed briefly with Kernow at his site in the title. This park is beyond compare in my experience very very up market with superb facilities and relaxed surroundings. Kernow himself is a super bloke who put himself out no end helping us with boating glitches. This is one of my favourite boating locations with an easy, if a bit restricted, all states slip in Fowey. St Austell bay and on round to Mevagissey past Charlestown Harbour (home of some old square riggers) Black Head and Trenarren and Pentewan Beach is a beautiful stretch of coast with few hazards and fun deep water swells. Kernow's place is an ideal base for the area (although I would prefer to keep it for myself!). I commend the site to you all and Kernow himself is an all round good chap!

I shall be returning this time next year and will take a little more time then and stay longer at Carlyon Bay.

Thank you for those very kind words Derrick. It was a pleasure to meet you and the family.
'course arriving with a Rib in tow always helps, but towing it with a defender, well how good does it get

Sorry Derrick, but you're obviously a little confused. I know the afore mentioned Kernow and in no way is this the guy that you describe. Also, it was such a long time ago that he last towed a Rib with a Defender he'd not remember much about it now.

The 'Seat' has now been divided by 2 extra backrests so doesn't look quite so strange any more!

Lovely looking MC Hugh, we've seen a big upsurge in their numbers in the last few years, that twin axle will give you some extra weight carrying capacity as well. No problem to fit that one in, the largest we ever had was on a special chassis larger than that of a single decker coach, it didn't have its own garage like some of the RV's but was decked out with full size American fridge/freezer and of all things a stone tiled kitchen floor! Oddly it was just a 2 berth.

'Hey Slow' is about to be re-christened 'Barn again' by the way! (am I jealous of that Rib? Yep!)

cool will def pop in for a night or two on our way thru. the MC will carry 1250 kg of additional load and will tow 3 tons which is superb for us. and the garage and underfloor storage is just fantastic, can get two moped in the garage easily. trouble with most of the large european MCs they dont carry much weight allowance.
the Mc with the rib on the back is around 17.5 m in length with a max uk limit of 18m total length, so we just squeezed in. Not towed with it yet but will this week/weekend just to see what it is like ......is going to be very interesting i suspect.
