The Gardens of Lanhydrock

The Gardens of Lanhydrock

If I was designing my dream house I would make sure that it also had a massive garden, a garden that months later you'd still be discovering new parts and one you'd never get bored of looking at. 

We've got a pretty small garden, a patio, grass and a space to grow some vegetables in but at least we have one. When we were down in Cornwall we visited a National Trust place called Lanhydrock which is just outside of Bodmin.

Walking for our lunch

Walking for our lunch

Nothing makes you enjoy a meal more than when you've earned it and that was true for our meal we had in a place called The Old Inn in St Breward on the Bodmin Moors. We've stayed at Coombe Mill for the past three years and every time we make sure that we visit this place as the food is yummy, the portions huge and the place very welcoming. It's claim to fame is the fact that it is the highest inn in Cornwall.

Pretty Padstow

Just before Easter our little family headed off to Coombe Mill to enjoy a family break and while we were down that way we headed to Padstow...a place we had never been before. Wow what an amazingly beautiful place it is, if you've never been before I suggest you head that way. It's difficult to put in to words how beautiful it is. From the moment you arrive you get a smell from the fish n chips and that draws you in straight away. Even though we visited while it was the school holidays it wasn't busy while kind of surprised us.

This is one of the first scenes you are greeted with...the Padstow harbour.

We spent the most part of the day there, starting with having a walk around the shops and enjoying the weather. We also headed off and had something to eat and we managed to find somewhere that sold something other than a fish n chips.

After lunch we walked to the beach expecting it to be busy but what we were greeted with was just the perfect empty sandy beach.

The girls don't get to see sandy beaches very often so for the next few hours they made the most of it.

Like all good parent's we might not have been totally prepared but it didn't stop the girls and with the removal of their boots they went paddling in the sea wearing their tights.

Of course no trip to the seaside is complete without an ice cream and when in Padstow the ice cream has to be real Cornish ice cream.
