Just read on a review that the Marazion site is due for closure. Does anyone know if this is correct and can CAMC sites team confirm or not? Thanks.

I hope it's not true but I believe the site is leased from St Aubyn Estate so it could be so. That site is unique.

I've reported your post asking for a response, Brue.

Yes it would be a true loss to many, didn't know the estate owned it and so many places want to take things back "in house." frown

The two sites are chalk and cheese JVB. I'm not speculating just sad to hear if this site will be lost to the network. 

Thanks for reporting it TW.

I think I'm correct in saying St Aubyn own it but I'd not stake my fortune on that😗

Although nearby, never visited this site. However, seems we’re increasingly losing touring sites to statics and glamping style places. Hoping this isn’t another example?

We stayed at Wood Farm Charmouth last month and they are busy installing statics with one of the site staff saying that within two years there will be no touring pitches.

This will be very bad news indeed if it’s true😢 It’s one of those little gems that has hardly altered since we first used it back in the 1980’s. 

I am sure it’s on St Aubyn land Tinny, as you say, like the lovely CL we used to use that was very close, now gone. It’s a busy little Site as well, considering it’s no facility, we had to start booking back in the mid 1990’s, once the paddock area was provided with hook ups, along with other little areas. 

Ok, Godrevy isn’t far, but it’s totally different. 

We are booked into Threeways Marazion in September. Let’s hope it won’t be our final ever stay. 

I hope the Club will be up front and keep Members like us, who love this little Site, aware of any changes. We were even thinking of looking at a seasonal pitch for our van down there😢

I wonder if that is a reason the club have bought carnon downs? are they near

Not that close JV, and oh so different. Sort of like comparing a City with a tiny hamlet, both nice in their own way, but just about the only common factor is both are in Cornwall. Folks that love Marazion are unlikely to have the same affection to CD, and vice versa.
