2020 hasn’t been the greatest year now, has it? Everyone’s plans for half terms and summer holidays abroad have all had to be put on hold or cancelled for a while until its safe to resume normal activities. I for one am looking forward to being able to pack our bags and escape somewhere for the week with the family. Last year we drove the 6-hour journey from where we live to beautiful Cornwall and it did not disappoint.
I am not a fan of long-distance driving, not because I am scared or worried I just get bored easily and dislike it. David however, doesn’t mind driving them and he also doesn’t complain about it doing it either which is is great for me. The kids love a long adventure in the car as well, I pack them a bag each full of snacks, colourings books, headphones so that they can watch or play something on their tablets, or we play good old eye spy. We take regular stops so we can use the toilets and stretch our legs it really doesn’t phase them at all and they quite enjoy it.
Cornwall is such a beautiful place to be with its slow pace of life and breathtaking picturesque beaches with clear waters, Cornwall has one of the most stunning coastlines in the UK and best of all its home to my favourite savoury food, SCONES. You can’t visit Cornwall and not have a Scone and cream tea you just can’t.
The only beach we got to visit whilst we were there was one called Talland Bay beach which is situated in Looe which was not far from where we were staying at the time, we were only in Cornwall a few days but made two trips there because it was so pretty. We brought the kids a long net each from the little shop and we all went rock pooling to see what we could find. We then sat down together in a little beach hut and enjoyed a snack before heading back home.
Here are just a few reasons why you should choose a staycation in Cornwall, the number one Uk holiday destination.
- Beaches and coastline
- Picturesque views
- The History
- The Fishing villages
- Pasties and food
- The festivals (although they will be put on hold at the moment)
- Plenty of sub-tropical gardens to look around
And so much more, we made so many amazing memories there and we are looking forward to returning.
