Bone Valley Caravan & Camping Park: An Overbearing Owner

This little campground is only ten or fifteen minutes hike from Penzance town center, but is actually located in the village of Heamoor. At first, we though it was perfect. Small, close to town, quaint, and friendly. Unfortunately, this is only true until the owner becomes comfortable with you. While helpful, once familiar he becomes overbearing, insulting, and sometimes offensive, treating responsible campers like children and overreacting when there are any misunderstandings. At least three times he described how he would kick a camper out when they cause trouble and have them banned from all campgrounds up and down the length of Britain. Not very welcoming talk. This is the only accomodation I ever had any problems at during my last trek to Britain, and many others who were staying there reported the same sort of thing to us. We made haste to leave after we began to feel uncomfortable and found a much better and more comfortable campsite for less cost - see my Marazion section for this information.

Some static campers for cheap, a nice sitting room with books that's open morning til night (nice when it's cold), an overbearing ex-military owner.
