Holiday {Cornwall August 2017}

Holiday {Cornwall August 2017}

As you’ve probably guessed we love Cornwall! Beautiful sandy beaches, historic harbour villages, gorgeous rolling countryside, moorland, towering cliffs, picture perfect coastal views and so much to discover, it’s an absolutely stunning county and one of our most favourite places to visit.

Earlier this month we travelled to the north coast and once again stayed just outside of Newquay at White Acres with Luke’s parents and brother.

Although we didn’t have the heatwave weather we experienced on our visit in June we were lucky that for the majority of the holiday it stayed dry when we needed it to and we had such a wonderful week away. Whilst Luke’s dad and brother crammed in as much fishing as possible the rest of us enjoyed visiting our favourite places and exploring new ones.

Little lady was so excited on the run up to the holiday, it was so cute, she would excitedly ask ” going on holiday?” whenever we went out in the car and kept reminding us to take her bucket and spade to build those sandcastles and we were all very excited for a week away. She absolutely loved getting out and about and exploring. You can’t beat quality family time and It was wonderful to share the days with my lovely soon to be mother in law and meeting up with the fisherman for the evenings which after busy days out we mostly spent relaxing onsite.

Here are some of our holiday snaps …

The evening before we left for Cornwall Luke and I was looking for a another box set to watch, we decided on Poldark after hearing good reviews and got hooked! If you’re a fan you’ll know its set in beautiful Cornwall and one of the key filming locations is the historic harbour and village of Charlestown so we decided to go and visit. We had such a fantastic day exploring this stunning picturesque village, walking along the harbour and learning of its history. We discovered that not only is Charlestown a filming location for Poldark but also Taboo and many other films and TV programmes. It’s such a beautiful village full of history and definitely worth a visit!

We even got to board a ship!

Why not include the one of Freya trying to pick my nose… ha!

After a walk around the harbour we stopped for lunch at The Longstore where little lady enjoyed some fish and chips and we had the most delicious burger and the best meal I’ve eaten out for a long while! if you’re ever in or around Charlestown we’d all highly recommend this gorgeous steak and seafood restaurant.

After a look around the shipwreck and heritage centre and a very enjoyable day in Charlestown we headed back to White acres.
