{a holiday to cornwall}

i just got back from a lovely week in beautiful cornwall! i've always wanted to go and im soo glad i did, i absolutely loved it! we went exploring all around and we were very lucky with the weather.
it was a long way, driving over 900 miles in a week and sitting in traffic for 2 hours on the way down and way back which is fine when your singing loudly to taylor swift (probably much to the annoyance of the other drivers.) our view waking up every morning was blue skies and the sea (i didn't realise how much i missed the sea being in derby.)

the days were spent exploring the beaches, eating ice creams and pasties! i was there for 7 days and had 6 ice creams it was great, and just my opinion but roskillys ice cream is better than kellys! as for pasties i am not a fan, that was james's thing (he even brought them back with him :) in the week we went to kennack sands my favourite beach and one that we paddled in many times! a day in falmouth (where i might have got a little burnt) was brilliant, exploring the streets and eating ice cream on the beach (we did a lot of this.) st.michaels mount was amazing, being able to walk across the path that is covered by the sea most of the day was a great experience, and while people may laugh at crocs they were the best shoes to wear the whole week, being able to paddle at a moments notice! 

being in cornwall we couldn't not have a cornish cream tea! now i am not a fan of jam but it was delicious!  and we followed it up with an ice cream (are you seeing a recurring theme here?) this was in cadgwith the cutest little fishing village and where we spent our last day after visiting the seal sanctuary, spending the morning giggling at all the funny seals! we also visited st. ives a place i definetly want to go back to! cobbled streets, fish and chips, ice cream and seagulls, perfect! my little present to me from my holiday was the cute little seagull pouch from the poppy treffry shop in st. ives, i think it is the absolute perfect momento from my trip away! it was just what i needed a nice, relaxing trip away beside the sea with lots of ice cream :) and i definetly want to go again!

  1. You visited, in my opinion, the best 2 places ever to sit, enjoy a pint and people watch - The Godolphin Inn in Marazion looks straight onto the causeway -it's so funny watching whether people will get their feet wet, when the tides coming back in and the Sloop Inn in St Ives, brilliant place to stay, fantastic rooms and breakfasts and a great atmosphere on a Friday night, love it there in the winter too - looks like you had a great time xx

  2. Cornwall holidays are traditionally very popular with UK holidaymakers because of the stunning beaches, the wide open spaces, and the easy access to the county. Visitors from abroad love it for pretty much the same reasons. Helene Goldnadel
