J and I arrived home yesterday from almost two weeks on Steeple pitch. After nearly 40 years of camping here and across the channel this is probably one of the best campsites we have stayed at. As Ron said one day, "It doesn't suit everyone". He's right and if you want to camp on a sanitised 'club' camping ground, where they measure the space between tents and expect the tents and the campers to be in orderly, straight lines etc then do not come here. If you want to relax, enjoy the view, the locality and escape the pressures of work etc then do come.
Ron and his troupe of Ronettes are so camper friendly, so helpful and full of enthusiasm for what they do. Around every corner is a surprise or something to bring a smile to your face. Every one of our Naybors on adjoining pitches spoke highly of the staff and the site.
Ok...... So some of the toilets are a bit dated but they were always clean, functional and never nasty and smelly. (Unless you went into the 'Bang-Bang' toilets straight after J had let rip with one of her 'Morning Speshuls'.
We will be back as soon as time allows. If we could have stayed here for the rest of the summer, then we would have.
Costings were very fair for the setting. The pitches were very well constructed, enclosed by low, granite walls and/or interesting planting. We emerged from our tent every morning to a view over the Atlantic Ocean and enjoyed so many amazing sunsets most evenings.
Across the fence from us were the pigs, alpacas, goats and poultry. I think J was grateful for the pigs as it was difficult to identify if she was snoring or the pigs were snorting.
Lizard and the surrounding area is beautiful. We were lucky with the weather.
All in all, this was a most magnificent holiday for us.
