My Cornish Experiences

At the start of 2017 I travelled to Cornwall with my Fiancé, Mum and Dad. Here’s my review of the time we spent there!

I hadn’t been on a family holiday for quite a while but as Luke and I can’t drive (yet – watch this space..!) we knew that Cornwall was not somewhere we would be able to visit easily ourselves. Thankfully Mum and Dad were driving down and offered to collect us, drive us down and let us do our own thing or tag along with them when we’d like.

Highlights of the trip included our hotel which although ‘just’ a Travelodge, had a floor to ceiling glass wall overlooking Newquay Bay. We also had our first Michelin star experience at Nathan Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen (”Tapas-style plates of local fish & seafood from celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw, in a bistro setting’”) in Port Issac. Whilst in Cornwall we took the opportunity to visit the beautiful Eden Project in Bodelva and filled our days with long walks and quirky restaurants like Academy Nathan Outlaw where future Michelin star winning chef’s are trained.

I would go back to Cornwall but going in the Winter meant that a lot of the tourist things were closed so if we returned, it would be in the Summer. Other than that, we all loved the experience.

    I live in Cornwall and the best time to visit is Spring time to early July. The roads and holiday resorts are chaos once the school holidays hit . There are so many lovely places to visit slightly off the beaten track.
