LITTLE TREVOTHAN’S VIRTUAL RECEPTION
This year, we aren’t able to offer the same reception service as before during your stay, as our reception area is very small with no capacity for social distancing.
Instead we have created this Virtual Reception page and have packed it with as much information we can think of that you might find useful to have a look at before you come on holiday.
Cornwall’s message to visitors this summer is
THINK, PLAN, BOOK & STAY SAFE
for a great holiday
This year it is worth doing a bit of research before you travel to make sure you can book in advance any attractions and meals out that you want to include during your stay.
COVERACK – The picturesque fishing village of Coverack is a short walk away of 1 mile along the lane. Turn right at the end of our driveway and follow the lane for about 20 minutes. The walk back up the hill will take a little longer! See map here. The beach is dog friendly, and has a large expanse of sand at low tide. At mid tide there are many rock pools to discover. The sea is ideal for swimming and you can take out a kayak, paddle board or have wind surfing lessons from Chris and Robin.
Tide Times for Coverack can be found HERE. These are also posted on reception window and in our holiday caravans.
There are two car parks at either end of the village, a small one by the Paris pub and a large area at North Corner around the other side of the bay. Both have honesty boxes and the money collected is given to local charities.
Places to eat include The Paris, The Old Lifeboat House, Harbour Lights, The Bay Hotel (01326 280464) and Archie’s Loft (01326 281440). You will also find Roskillys between Coverack and St Keverne.
See also Trip Advisor for some ideas.
There are a range of small shops selling gifts, wet suits, fishing tackle, local pottery and crafts, and of course ice cream, and Coverack Village Stores.
Please respect that many people in our Coverack community are in the vulnerable group. We have, on the whole, been pretty isolated in this area and locals may be nervous about tourism opening, and lots of changes taking place. Our local shops have been supporting our community, and will continue to do so, so please be patient and respect the social distancing ruling at all times – thank you.
SHOPPING – We will be open every morning from 8am until 10am for you to buy things from our camp shop. We will do this from the reception doorway this year, as our shop is too small for distancing. A list of supplies is available here, and includes fresh items from local businesses we are supporting, such as Cornish milk, free range eggs, bread, bacon, sausages, burgers and cheese. We also stock Camping Gaz and Calor Gas, regulators, charcoal and firewood.
There is also a village shop in St Keverne and the 3 main supermarkets are in Helston:
– Sainsbury, Clodgey Lane TR13 8BN
– Tesco, Clodgey Lane TR13 8PJ
– Lidl, Penzance Road TR13 8NH
Our social distancing rules are 2m, and we ask that children are supervised please. Face coverings are to be worn in our inside facilities i.e. toilet block, dishwashing room and launderette.
Most areas of the park will be open this season, apart from the games room (and reception and shop as mentioned above). Areas will have some restrictions and we ask that you observe all the lovely laminated signs we have in place!
Playing Field & Playground – A great place for playing, but with distancing in place this year. Please observe the signs and ensure your children use the hand sanitiser before and after playing.
The park and playground will close at sunset.
Showers & Toilets – These will be open at 50% capacity to ensure social distancing can be observed. Entry to the facilities will therefore be restricted, and signs will be displayed regarding use. If you have your own facilities it is obviously in your best interest to use them as much as you can. Our bookings this year have also been capped at 50% for touring and camping.
Cleaning – We will be closing the shower/toilet blocks for cleaning and ask you to use the other facilities, or avoid showering, during these times. Times will be displayed outside each facility block.
Chemical & Grey Waste Disposal – We recommend the use of a face mask and gloves in this area. Maintain social distancing if waiting and use the hand sanitiser provided.
Ice Blocks, Phone Charging, Freezers and Hair Driers – due to these services involving such high touch points, we are not able to have these available for you this year.
OUT AND ABOUT
There are opportunities for many walks, taking in a wide variety of country and coastal scenery. The South West Coastal Path runs through Coverack, and offers something different whichever direction you take.
Two walks starting from Coverack can be found here.
The Free Maps of Cornwall website is a great resource and we have downloaded the two most local maps for you here.
Further afield, the Lizard Peninsula has numerous stunning coves to discover, with Lizard Point being the most southerly point in England. See how many you can find off the beaten track.
Have a look at our Attractions page or the Visit Cornwall website to find out more of what this area and Cornwall have to offer. Please remember that many places are only opening to guests who have pre-booked tickets.
THANK YOU FOR REACHING THE END !
