"Welcome to Stumble Inn, Elmina, Ghana. At the moment we're the Central Region's best kept secret, but that's all about to change! Stumble Inn is a travellers rest in an idyllic beach front location - somewhere you can get away from it all and just be. It's a place you can visit for a few days, a base from which you can explore the best of what the Central Region has to offer, or if you're here as part of our ethical volunteer programme it will become your home from home - one with a beach, palm trees and even a whalebone!"

This is pretty cool - we got a lovely email a few days ago from a woman called Liz, who promptly told us that Stumble Inn was going to be in the travel section of the Guardian.. For those of you who don't know, the Guardian is one the biggest national newspapers in England.

Anyway, the article is about readers tips on the best beachfront campsites, and goes on to list various sites in the UK, and a few abroad. There are two sites reviewed in Africa, one in Kenya - and then of course us, Stumble Inn in Ghana!

A very kind guest (who seemed to have enjoyed their stay at Stumble) is quoted as saying:

"Stumble Inn is a traveller's rest in Elmina in Ghana, with accommodation in rondavels, dormitories and tents. You can walk straight from your tent onto the beach, have an open air shower with water heated up by the sun, and grill your freshly bought fish from Elmina market on the camping BBQ. The fish market and Elmina castle are a 30-minute beach stroll away. You can get dinner and a Ghanaian beer at the lodge's bar."

How awesome is that! At Stumble we have welcomed campers since we opened last year. We have a dedicated washing (shower) and toilet block right next to the beach, and we are considering a BBQ area as well. The camping spot is right next to the beach, so gets the sea breeze, and take it from someone who knows.. there's nothing better than hearing the waves to help you fall asleep. We recently used some open air tents as well - basically a camp bed with a mosquito net over the top (I make it sound quite basic and just shonked together, but it's actually very very good!). To be able to look up at the sky whilst in a comfortable bed.. now that's proper camping!

Anyway - huge thanks to our guest, and to the Guardian.. and we look forward to welcoming more campers!
