Cornwall – clotted cream and coastal delights

We’re just home from a wonderful week down in Cornwall. We stayed just outside Rock – which is across the estuary from well known Padstow. We were so lucky with the weather – four or five afternoons spent lazily on various beaches on the North Cornish Coast. We did a couple of great coastal walks too and visited the Eden Project, which I’d really recommend. The Eden Project is really good value too – especially if you pre book tickets online. Whilst there we were also really impressed by the selection of cafe / restaurants to have lunch in – great food and really reasonably priced even though they have a captive audience.


It really is a stunning part of the country but one of our main excitements about this holiday was the food – we had high hopes for lots of fresh fish and cream teas and it didn’t disappoint. We were self catering so we ate in a couple of evenings (well once really, the other times we ventured to the local fish & chip shop in Rock, which was amazing.

If you’re planning a trip, I’ve reviewed a few of the places we ate for dinner and afternoon tea on Trip Advisor. From my favourite place in Padstow which served the best Italian food I’ve had outside of Italy to a local tea room just down the road from our cottage tucked away in someones garden.
