We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Cornwall, for those who don't know, this is the beautiful county on the south west tip of the UK. It is where I moved at the age of sixteen with my family, where I met and married my husband and where three of our four children were born.
We rented a little cabin situated in someone's garden, it had its own little garden and was perfectly peaceful. We spent our days walking, eating and sightseeing, we had our family visit us on one day and we spent that day with them at the beautiful Trebah Gardens. http://www.trebahgarden.co.uk/ which has its own little private beach where the children took a dip.
We visited little fishing harbours and villages and enjoyed discovering potteries which we hadn't been to before. The weather was perfect which is a little unusual for Cornwall and we even managed to hire a kayak and paddle around the shore line from our favourite little beach.
