Last year, My family and I went on a week long holiday near to Padstow, in a north Cornwall holiday home. The Pols Piece holiday home based in North Cornwall was really what we needed, as it meant my husband and the kids got a chance for a quick getaway from London. We found a great place on the Internet and we were able to book online really easily.
We were in the Cornish to town of Trevone, which provided a great place to explore the depths of Cornwall’s caves and coves. The Kids were really excited to be able to go to Cornwall and to visit to the beaches and amusement parks. A few of our friends had been to Cornwall before, they had stayed with some friends and said it was much better than when they went to New York for two weeks. So on that solid recommendation, we started to plan our holiday. We would usually go to places like Majorca, for our family summer holidays, but Trevor (My Husband) and me felt like a change.
On the first day, we settled in to our Holiday Home near Padstow and relaxed after the long 300 mile journey from our home in South London. On the second day, were managed to find out our surroundings by going for a country walk along the costal path, we found a small cafe for lunch and headed on to the beach. This meant all the family could relax with the hot Cornwall sun, and get a cool dip in the water. We visited Rick Stein’s Restaurant in the evening, and the kids were able to try fresh cornish fish for the first time. On our third day, we were able to drive to St. Austell to see the Eden Project. My five year old’s favorite place was the Mediterranean Biome. There were some amazing figures which attracted the interest of our 18 month year old daughter Susie. Whilst we were there we were able to get a drink in the cafe and grab some Eden Project souvenirs for our friends back home, We had traditional Cornish pasties for lunch and they were delicious.
My Husband is an avid fan of playing golf, so he was delighted to hear that a golf club was only two miles away from the holiday home, He took the kids with him and they had their first go at crazy golf. I was able to get away from the family and go to an exotic spa in St. Columb, I got the Day Spa package and had a Pedicure, Massage and Facial which really made my day!
On our last day we felt we visited Flambards Amusement Park In Helston, It was a treat for the kids - but even my husband enjoyed it. Their favorite ride was the Thunderbolt which I wouldn’t step on! The kids got a chance to meet Ferdie the Bear and I got a photo opportunity. We were able to put Susie in the Creche, which meant we could all go on the rides. I enjoyed ‘The Garden Experience’ as it gave me loads of ideas for our back garden at home.
We only had a week in Cornwall, so we weren’t able to fit everything in. I’d recommend that if you come to Cornwall for a holiday, you spend at least two weeks here, We traveled back to London on the next day and could stop thinking about the memories we’d had in Cornwall. We were glad we’d chosen to goto Cornwall instead of Spain. The food, people and scenery was excellent, I think it looks like we’ve found a new place to come for our family summer holiday... North Cornwall! We are already planning our holiday for next year and hope we will be able to fit everything next time!
We stayed at Pols Piece Holidays (www.polspieceholidays.co.uk) for our accommodation, which served as a perfect base to explore Cornwall.
