Number 3 in '10 unusual places to stay in Cornwall'
"The UK's first gay-owned campsite, is 10 years old this year ­ and it is 'very camp'. Aimed at gay and lesbian campers, the setting is a 21-acre working farm near Helston and the beach at Porthleven.".
Cornwall Today:
August 2008:
"As my visit comes to an end, I can see that Out in the Open is a clear reflection of the people who run it. Cath & Dee love the outdoors, have high standards, love socialising, share a sense of humour & are gay. All of these things come across in abundance in this enchanting & rather crazy campsite, which is the fruit of their endeavours & which, as its name suggests, is as camp as a row of tents"

'On One Knee in a Tipi': a romantic proposal in the tipi: "Dee & Cath ...went beyond the call of duty & contributed greatly to the whole occasion. Every time we say 'thank you', the words just aren't enough to show our appreciation of all they did. Truly special people".
Pink Paper:
Summer 2005:
Over 150 women camping on the farm were entertained with belly dancing, poetry, open mike sessions, live music & comedy"
9th April 2004:
"Sometimes it can be difficult to find a campsite to take gay couples. Comedian Rhona Cameron was blocked from organising a trip to a caravan park in Cornwall because the site won't let same-sex partners share caravans.....But Cath & her partner, Dee set up the first exclusively gay campsite. 'People can be themselves without looking over their shoulder', says Cath about the pink haven which opened to gay campers in 1999."
