    You will love Scilly camping good toilet and shower blocks fab views and use of freezers for your ice packs to go in your cool boxes and charging points for your phones.

Really enjoyed reading this as we’ve also been camping with our five month old son this summer, firstly staying in a tent for a long weekend in Cornwall and then staying in a caravan for a week in France. The main lesson I learnt from the latter is that trying to put up a travel cot that doesn’t come with instructions can be incredibly frustrating. Thankfully the campsite WiFi at their reception and a quick look at YouTube managed to help sort out the travel cot issue.

    Re ‘cool boxes’ I always prefer the ones that plug into the car cigarette socket – helps to keep them really cool while driving – but don’t leave ’em plugged into a live socket overnight or you may end up with a flat battery!
