We managed to escape at long last after not having a break for a while so set off with high hopes. However, despite my trying to stay positive it was challenging at times. It rained nearly every day and when we arrived at the cottage there was no heating apart from a wood burning stove. There was also no internet unless I walked up the lane from the farm and faced a certain direction!
Apart from that we were able to meet up with a friend from Launceston and a day on the Doc Martin tour with friends from St. Just. A meal at Nathan Outlaw’s Kitchen on our anniversary was one to remember too.
The scenery was wonderful especially the craggy coastline with the crashing waves at Trebarwith Strand and the beach at Polzeath. The farm shop at Boscastle is also a great place to eat and sample the Camel Valley wine!
Perhaps another time we would go further south to explore and pick a time when the weather may be more settled.
