Well, happy heatwave campers!!! Isn’t it scorching?!! The blue skies here in Porlock are absolutely gorgeous, though it feels like yesterday that we were wading through snow! The camp site has been very busy, indeed the local towns and villages have been buzzing with happy holiday-makers and sales of cream teas and ice cream are rapid. The air is filled with the sound of tractors hard at work as the farmers make hay while the sun shines. As I sit and type this, with a gentle breeze coming through the sunshine and a cockerel gently crowing at a sociable 9.30am, things couldn’t look or sound more idyllic in Porlock.
This weekend sees nearby Porlock Weir hosting top quality live music in the annual Weirfest event. It’s a brilliant place to wander from Sparkhayes campsite (or take the free shuttle bus from the Top Ship) and you can spend a happy hour or two or many more listening to the music and sampling the real ales and ciders, while taking in the outstanding harbour-side scenery.
Thoughts turn to the summer holidays and we’re now getting lots of enquiries. Bank holiday weekends tend to be very busy so if you’re thinking of coming to camp please bear this in mind. If you don’t need an electric hook up then there’s no need to book in advance, simply arrive and look for an appealing spot in our relaxed and friendly fields. If you would like to book an electric hook up (and these are limited) please give Phil a call on 07721 045123. He can check his diary and make a note of your requirements if a hook-up is available. His phone has been absolutely inundated with calls recently, so if you have trouble getting through or there is a little delay in getting back to you, please bear with us.
Time to water the rather wilty flowers. Enjoy the sun folks and stay safe!
