Rally possible Venue - Please look

Need comments please

One of our members has approached me with some interesting information reference a possible venue for future rallies, its the Maker Heights Centre at Rame Head near Plymouth.

Here is an overhead shot of the area



loads more information on the site here http://www.makerheightscentre.ik.com/

Normally the cost per pitch would be £5 per night, but as a discount to MHFacts members this could be reduced to £4.50 per night for a normal stay there, but for a rally, depending on numbers attending this could be reduced more. There is also the possibility of a BBQ/Music even possibly a bar being laid on, we would need to supply some helpers to organise and run it.

There are plenty of quite reasonable facilities around. The two local villages have several pubs each, a very good fish and chip shop and eatery and other good eating places. It is adjacent to Mt.Edgcumbe Country Park and the SW Coast Path runs outside our grounds. Lots of good beaches and walks. Plymouth, with all its attractions, can be accessed by foot passenger ferry in about a mile. There are local transport firms, taxis and mini and bigger buses.
If people wish to use us as a staging point there are plenty of other attractions within an hours drive (Eden to mention a big one and of course places like Looe and Polperro, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor).


Comments please

I'm interested but once again it looks like being one end of the country or another - those of us still doing the monday to friday might struggle to get there. That said, you can't please all the people all of the time and I do understand it is really difficult to find places. It sounds great, let me know when it is and I'll do my best to be there.

If I don't make it I'll rely on you all to have a pasty for me

Cheers

David

That looks really nice & I would certainly try to come but I'm going to clash with Motorhomer here as for us it has to be in school holidays as it's too far just for a weekend

Site

As the member putting forward this site we would be pleased to see any of you more or less any time. Our facilities are fairly primitive but our location fantastic and plenty of space.
The question of timing for a rally we have to leave to popular demand but you would be welcome individually anyway.

Hi Caz


I would also have to add a few days either side to make it worthwhile as like you it is too far for us for the weekend as well. Unfortunately i run a little tourist information & gfts & beach goods centre on the beach so school holidays is always very busy for me. Kids want their buckets & spades etc so cant really close the shop at this time. Still you cant please all of the people all of the time can you?

Could you get someone in to run it for you perhaps? Kids looking for a holiday job for a few days? Or maybe we could come to you instead? Or how about winter, do you close up shop when the cold weather comes?

Hi Caz

Unfortunately we cant have school or college students or any one working in the shop without police checks etc working amongst children who when in & on the beach area are a little less clothing clad if you know what i mean. By the time they were vetted the school holidays would be over. Unfortunately at the moment there are only two folk running the park. Myself & the ranger & he obvoiusly has the park & car parks etc to look after. It is much easier to have time off to suit me out of the school holidays and especially out of the summer season. We have just had a few days ito visit other halfs sister 7 family in Hull & our next break will be the rally operated by Carol on Exmoor in early Septemmber for a similar motorhome site.

Still I am due to retire or at least reduce my hours somewhat next financial year so easier to arrange weekends off or even all of them.
Who knows.

Regarding a rally this way we are always on the look out for somewhere but as yet not seen anywhere near here suitable. We are a bit like the foot of Italy here if you know what I mean.
