Cornwall 2012

Carbis Bay

Pheebs, Abel and I have just spent 2 weeks in Cornwall on holiday which was very pleasant and definitely beat sat at a desk working. We broke the holiday into two parts and the first week we spent exploring the St Ives area and stayed at the Gonwin Manor luxury cottages. We spent the majority of the time visiting the vast number of National Trust properties in the area as we had a family membership which allowed us free entry. Highlights of that week included some interesting walks, talking to some interesting people (it’s amazing how many people want to talk to you when you’ve got a kid!), enjoying a family Jacuzzi (not sure what Abel really thought of that!) and getting to the centre of the maze at Gendurgan!

From there we then moved up into Deven to Kingbridge near Salcombe and stayed at Lower Coombe Royal which was another self catering apartment, but not first without meeting up with Alex, Emma and little Jasmine for lunch in Tavistock! Highlights of that week included a visit to the National Maritime Museum, wandering around Totnes and getting Abel’s foot prints on some plates (that was interesting!).

It was certainly great to escape from work and spend some time with the family but doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun!
