Looks that way... I do enjoy the decision making process though. ;-)

That would certainly be preferable to any later when it could get very crowded on Crantock beach.

I know school holidays haven't started then but it's the time when couples with pre-school kids start visiting.

The STACK Round at Rougham has been moved to May 19th and 20th - hopefully that doesn't clash with anything (much), so as to leave the June date for Crantock.

Brilliant. Thanks, Barry.

I'm making a democratic decision on behalf of everyone else. ;)

Crantock 2012 will be on the weekend of 23rd/24th June. :cool:

Could we organise a group booking at Treago Farm? I'll be going for at least 4 days this year.
At the moment the Mrs. cant get time off work so I should have some room in the camper if anyone needs a lift down there.

After days of working away on er' indoors I think I have finally managed to break her - either I dreamt it or last night she said I could go!

Looking at the possibility of getting a cottage for the week .. anyone fancy sharing even just for the weekend? Rentals are approx £700/wk for 4-6 person rental, not cheap, but last year's hotel was £80 a night so 3 nights ended up being more than what 1/3rd of a cottage would be for a week...

Still don't do camping ;)

I'll be there, it's in the diary, bringing my better half & the (not) so litte one too - don't worry their beach trained. Any advice on B&B's in the area? Or Hezz tell me more about the cottage? I would camp but probably going to have to drive down Friday night & back Sunday evening so camping's out of the question this time.

Can anyone recommend a good b&b or hotel in Crantock?

I stayed here a few years back and it was very good:

Thanks Paul

It's certainly convenient for the beach.

Been looking forward to this so much, but the British Summer Weather means that this is going to have to be a no go this year.

Too much wind and too much rain to make the long, long journey justifiable.

Sorry guys (& gals) :(

Same for me I'm afraid, Forecast looks worse than last year, and my Northern Monkey friends cant make it so its a 700 mile round trip on my own.

Maybe we could look at later in the year?
