Well, if you watch the news, it would be easy to believe that 2017 has been a pretty crazy year already and we’re only a month into it. If it’s all a bit too depressing for you, put down the paper, turn the TV off and start planning a holiday to pretty Porlock this Spring. We are fortunate enough to be quite isolated from national and international affairs and have a wonderfully relaxed pace known locally as ‘Porlock Time’…! Holiday-makers are already starting to fill their diaries and make bookings with us, so think ahead and let us welcome you for a relaxing break. We have our usual booking of a large group arriving on 2 July and departing on 7 July, so maybe avoid those dates if you can, and for bank holidays the advice is to book early if you’d like an electric hook up!
While you’re filling in the diary, you might like to note various Porlock events; there’s the Charity Duck Race here at Sparkhayes on Sunday 28 May, our annual Weirfest from Thursday 29 June until Sunday 2 July and of course Porlock Carnival on Saturday 2 September to name a few..! We’re also anticipating the second Samphire Festival, held within sight of the camp site, on Friday 7 – Sunday 9 July. Voted best small festival of 2016, take a look at the video on the right if you’re curious! If camping at the festival itself is a bit too much for you (and the family) come down to the village and rest your heads at Sparkhayes instead.
We’re sure you’ll be delighted to know that our prices are being held AGAIN! So the 2015 prices remain for 2016 and 2017. Hopefully that’s a refreshingly positive piece of news, among so many worrying ones. Have you been to stay at Sparkhayes in the past twelve months? Would you like to share some photos on our blog? Send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to put them here.
Looking forward to welcoming you, campers old and new, for a fantastic 2017 season.
The little team here at Sparkhayes have keen interests in / knowledge of Porlock, Exmoor, steam railways, British pubs, sports and adventure, family activities, relaxing and making happy memories. Use us!
