A Cornish Spring Adventure

A few weeks ago, we embarked on a long anticipated family excursion to Perranporth in Cornwall. The trip was organised by Adam’s sister Zoe and so that everyone could get together to celebrate their parents’ golden wedding anniversary.

Zoe found a beautiful Air bnb in the form of a lovely little cottage with views overlooking the beach. We left the dogs with my family so that we could have a week off of early morning starts and walks and took plenty of car snacks and excellent tunes for our road trip.

The night we arrived we figured out a plan for what to do for the week, with lots of activities and day trips to keep us busy.

The only downside to the week was that a few of the days were hampered a bit by a pretty intense fog that seemed to be hanging over the Cornish coast – while everyone back in Southampton had the hottest May bank holiday on record, no less! But we trucked on in true British style; we visited Saint Agnes, Tintagel Castle, Newquay (for a spot of shopping and some incredible gin), Porthleven, Flambards (a teeny tiny theme park) and Jamiaca Inn. We did body boarding, walks on the beach, fish and chips and lots of relaxing! We also managed to sneak in watching the Eurovision semi finals, because, you know.

I had such a lovely week exploring new places and spending some quality time with Adam and family – and there is so much more of Cornwall I want to see now!

Does anyone have any recommendations for next time?
