It’s just a few weeks until we go away – we finally booked something! We’re staying by Newlyn Harbour in Cornwall for a week over the period of Port Eliot Festival and Cornish Day and we’re really looking forward to it.
It’s the first time I’ve been away on holiday for 7 days since I was a child so the opportunity to explore will be embraced with both hands. We’re hiring a car so we’re not limited by public transport and I’ve already been picking up holiday staples like my backpack and seaside-esque vest from Primark pictured above to try to be prepared for all situations (I’ll be packing my waterproofs too!).
We’re opposites in so much as Chris has visited Cornwall before because he’s worked at The Minack Theatre when Ilkley Players have performed there during the summer and I’ve never been before. You may wonder why I’m blogging about it? Well, I’d really like your recommendations for places to go.
I’ve been visiting a couple of websites, noseying at photos on Instagram tagged with Cornwall and generally seeing if anything comes up in my Twitter feed but it would be ace to hear of places that people personally recommend – the places that blew them away, the places that make them proud to live nearby or the hidden gems that you might not stumble across without some direction.
Leave me your recommendations, comments and links below and I’ll have a nosey and will no doubt report back on where we’ve visited on our return. If you’d like to read some of my reviews and recommendations of places to visit in the UK, check out my Near Enough:Travel in the UK series.
