Snapshots of Cornwall
Just as the leaves turn, and the sun starts to leave longer shadows across the dewy garden, we love to take off on a little adventure before the run up to Christmas gets into full swing.
This year, we hopped in the car and made our way down to Cornwall for a bit of vitamin sea and some family time.
Autumn sunshine bathed our week in a golden glow so swimming in the sea, rock pools, ice cream, cliff top strolls and good books on the beach were the order of the holiday.
However, being the colour lover that I am, I had to do some pretty house stalking in Padstow too!
Amongst the busy shopping streets of Padstow there were SO many dogs, colourful seafront stores and cheerful ice cream vendors.
Down in the harbour expensive yachts jostled against colourful fishing boats.
As a very special treat, we had lunch at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant. Relaxed and cosy, the restaurant looks out over the sea and serves delicious local fish dishes and even the odd pink pudding!
Down winding country lanes, lined with high hedges of wild flowers, our home for the week sat nestled in Treyarnon Bay, a rugged Cornish beach with crashing atlantic waves, golden sands and bordered by caves and turquoise rock pools.
There was even an awesome pink caravan serving Rose’s locally made ice cream!
We were lucky enough to have a garden overlooking the beach, Buffy loved her look out point across the bay!
Our little corner of the North Cornwall coast was the perfect place for an autumn adventure with beautiful coastline to explore and fishing villages adorned in pastel hues.
