Back in April 2011, when Jesus was getting up for his Easter eggs and the Great British Monarchy were busy accepting the lowly daughter of a party supplies entrepreneur into their ranks, national holidays were plentiful, and so we fled London and went camping.
We were looking for somewhere quiet, near the coast and with beautiful views.
We’d flirted with the idea of wild camping in Dartmoor, as it’s the only place you can legally wild camp in England. That would have taken care of the peace and scenery but not the sea. So I scanned a map, and went along the coastline looking for suitable spots.
And so we found Maker.
Maker is on the Rame Peninsula. The campsite sits high on a hill and with amazing views all around. It was the Easter school holidays , there was a heatwave going on, and yet the site was incredibly peaceful. We had planned to stay for a couple of days. Instead we spent the rest of our holiday there.
