Just a note to say.. In these unprecedented times it is important to follow the advice that it has been provided to us. I will continue to be writing blog posts to offer a form of escape and entertainment throughout this time but it is also important to be aware of the rapidly changing situation and to take things day by day. My most recent posts are about our wonderful trip to Devon and Cornwall of times when things were happier and healthier! It is important not to be tempted to visit at this time but please take the time to reflect and make exciting plans to visit this wonderful part in the future when things start to return to normal. This lovely part of the world will need your visits more than ever and there are so many fantastic places to travel to in order to help their local economy. In the meantime, I hope you are keeping safe, mentally and physically healthy.
The weekend before my birthday (and prior to lockdown) we took a trip down to Looe in Cornwall. Our destination was the wonderful Wringworthy Cottages, located in the heart of the gorgeous Cornish countryside. Usually for my birthday we opt for a city break, and last year for my 30th, we had visited a lovely spa hotel in Hampshire. This year I was fortunate enough to win a competition and so we opted to have a trip to Cornwall as part of my birthday celebrations!
After a beautiful, scenic trip down we arrived to be greeted by such peaceful surroundings of the countryside – you truly feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. We visited in the Winter month of February and the cottage we were staying in was so lovely and warm. It felt so cosy, especially with the electric fire. It was exactly what you would envisage a cottage in the countryside to be like.
We stayed in a lovely cottage called Weavers. It could suit up to 7 people and it was the perfect size for my partner and I, along with my sister, brother-in-law and niece. It had a large kitchen and lounge area upstairs along with three good sized bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a huge bathroom downstairs! It had a stable door at the top of the building and another door conveniently opening onto the car park, making it easy to bring our luggage into the cottage. We opened our stable door to a number of chickens on the doorstep and my 12 year old niece loved seeing the chickens and the donkeys! The bedrooms were comfortable and the cottage had everything you could require during your stay – it was perfect.
There was such a range of entertainment available at Wringworthy Cottages. There was a swimming pool, games room along with donkeys and chickens roaming the grounds! We explored the Games Room on the evening of our arrival. My partner and brother-in-law played some pool and sister and niece enjoyed playing some air hockey! I explored the large amount of leaflets detailing local attractions and places to get food.
Wringworthy Cottages are close to the gorgeous coastal villages of Looe and Polperro. They are well worth a visit and less than a ten minute drive. We chose to get takeaways on all nights we stayed there and it was so convenient to pop to Looe to pick up our dinner – it was still piping hot when we arrived back! It was also convenient to pop over to Plymouth for a day of Adventure Golf which was great fun – another activity we would highly recommend!
