Cornish adventures

kynance cove

Our family holiday to Cornwall was booked two years ago by my parents to celebrate the return of my brother from South Africa. I’ve been to Cornwall many times. It is a place I love and have very fond childhood memories of. Our party consisted of 15 adults and 8 children (all 3 years and under) so at times it was quite manic, but it was surprisingly easy for us to come up with a plan for the week. It was so lovely to cook just once in a whole week!

We hired bikes and cycled The Camel Trail between Wadebridge and Padstow, went to Kynance Cove (my all time favourite beach), quad biking, body boarding (at Great Western Beach, Newquay), saw the Red Arrows (in Fowey), went on a boat ride and I even had a surfing lesson (at Fistral Beach, Newquay) which I knew I would love!…even though I wasn’t brilliant.  In the evenings we mostly chatted, watched films and played game – Monopoly Deal and Settlers of Catan, of course!


The weather held up wonderfully, just a few showers here and there but the temperature was perfect. Charity shopping in Newquay was surprisingly successful as we managed to get Winston a wetsuit (cliché), a birthday present for my sister and some fabric.


My eating wasn’t always wholesome (a few too many ice-creams), I managed to fit in lots of exercise – swimming, a gym session, H.I.I.T. class, circuit training, body boarding and surfing. My shoulders and arms certainly took a beating!

Within the first 24 hours a few of us got addicted to a 1000 piece jigsaw, which we all found amusing. We just couldn’t stop and managed to finish it by day two.

    What a beautiful place to live! The Camel Trail is beautiful and there were so many people running, walking and cycling. So much at your finger tips, although we did find the traffic quite bad!…but it probably is just because it was summer! We had a wonderful time thank you and thank you for your comment xx
