As summer starts to draw to a close, I always find myself wishing I’d been out exploring our beautiful island more, and this year is no exception. But while I may not have seen as many new places as I’d have liked, I did have the opportunity to re-visit an old favourite.
A couple of years ago now, I joined the Retro Caravan Club rally at Cheesewring Farm, in the heart of Bodmin Moor, for a week of sunshine and socialising.
It’s fair to say I fell in love with the moor and all its craggy beauty; there’s nothing quite as satisfying as reaching the peak of one of the hills and looking out across a landscaped peppered with grazing sheep and relics of engine houses.
Our latest cover shoot was to accompany my colleague Peter’s journey into Cornwall’s Celtic history as he followed the new long-distance walking path, the Cornish Celtic Way.
Being at the centre of the path’s route, and boasting a fair few Celtic legends, the moor was an obvious choice for our cover shoot.
We were blessed with glorious sunshine, until we headed to the north coast, where we pitched up at Trewethett Farm Caravan and Motorhome Club Site, just around the headland from Tintagel Castle, which is steeped in Celtic myths.
The rather ominous darkening clouds that evening only served to make the site’s cliff-top location even more dramatic, as we watched squalls coming in off the Celtic Sea.
Look out for Peter’s Celtic adventure in the next issue, which is on sale next Thursday.
