Delightfully spacious upstairs , lovely finish and furnishings , decor etc , aswell as country view and sunsets.
Very attractive dining kitchen , loved all the Portmerion crockery too ..aswell as looking thru some great recipe books on the shelf. We really enjoyed all the little treats of delicious local produce left for us... and sourced a local farm shop to buy more ....also tracked down the Raw Choc Pie Co shop in St Ives to stock up on the delicious small bar you left us...the different tasters at the shop were sublime!
...and thanks for your tip to breakfast at Scarlett's place, we set off v early to avoid traffic, so that was a great nearby place to wait at, and the breakfasts and coffee were delicious . Still arrived a little early but Beth was most welcoming, and nearly done, so we went off on foot to explore the fabulous Tremcrom hill behind the house before unpacking. Great start to the hols!
Oh and Sat Nav worked fine every time.
Highlight - The heatwave probably...nowhere quite like Cornwall when the sun shines ..great combination..and it was mainly a beach holiday we wanted...so explored several. Carbis Bay was our favourite ..went twice. Young one's wanted surf, so Godrevy school and surfboard+wetsuit hire was great ... and rest of NT coast there all v good too. St Ives v busy, but did Porthminster and Porthmeor beaches, and quaint town and Choc shop, and fab dinner at Portminster Kitchen restaurant by harbour . Pity Tate shut for refurb. Glad young one's had GPS on phones to locate car parks .
Also went to Telegraph museum at Porthcurno, but Minack theatre there fully booked, and rain/fog came in making viewing the beach and coast road a no go that day . As to fave place ....if I can only choose one ...it would be Carbis bay , tho we also enjoyed a climb up Tremcrom hill one evening to take in the amazing views and stayed up there sitting on the stones watching the sun go down before walking back to the house. The whole week was a great success.
Think we 'll be back again ...it was really quite perfect ...and the week flew by ..would like to explore some more ..aswell as more of the same!
Thanks for all the extra touches ..am a real fan of the Yumchaa Ginseng tea now, the local breads and jam, raw choc pie and other goodies... tho they taste so much better in Cornwall!
