Our Pitch, St Agnes 1999
Our Pitch, St Agnes 1999
It was 14 years since we had stayed on the campsite at Troy Town LinkExternal link and nine years since we had last stayed on St Agnes when we returned for the Eclipse.

We were lucky to get my favourite pitch on the site - and with a ready built table (Campers build these each year from pallets other bits of found driftwood and scraps from the farm).

The site is at its best at a high spring tide on a reasonable (let's say up to about force 5) Nor-Westerly, when the waves break less than 20 feet from this boundary wall. Very exhilarating at mealtimes, but a touch noisy if it's in the middle of the night and you are trying to sleep.
