I’ve been looking for a reason to air my pictures of a particularly quirky weekend last ‘summer’ that I spent in a classic 1950s caravan on an iron age fort on the Lizard. And I think I’ve found one: Lovelane Caravans, the hosts in question, are imminently opening (post-Easter) their own little Love Lane Campsite in a field over at Roskilly’s, near St Keverne on the Lizard.
Lovelane lady Anna, an ex lingerie designer, painstakingly restores vintage caravans for a living, and decorates them in keeping with the era, rummaging through junk shops and jumble sales, and swooning at Coronation teacups. It’s all about the dainty period crockery with gold rims (make you feel like you’ve got extra-chunky fingers), original Teasmaid tea machines and lace tablecloths.
The fact that the campsite is a few fields of donkeys and cows away from Roskilly’s HQ – legendary purveyors of ice-cream and pasty-and-salad – is simply too much for one post!
