Newquay Tregurrian Watergate Bay Campsite Review

As it was the Bank Holiday weekend, we decided to enjoy the Cornish coast and go camping. We had recently been to Sennen Cove and explored the Lands End peninsula, so wanted to change it up a little and go somewhere different. We finally chose the Tregurrian Camping and Caravanning Club Site at Watergate Bay due to the awesome location and excellent facilities available. When we arrived, we were given the choice of two main areas. The staff we met…

Helly Hansen HP Fleece Jacket and Dromi Utility Pant Review

  Helly Hansen HP Fleece Jacket Review For our hike along the North Cornish Coastline, I bought some new clothing for the trip. As the trek was quite intense and involved walking over 140 miles of pretty severe terrain over just six days, I wanted some kit that was really going to help. I’ve worn Helly Hansen clothing during mountain walking in the past and have always found it really good gear. As part of our plan we had also…
