Pretty Cornwall

We spent last week in Cornwall - an impromptu holiday which I booked the night before. What a great idea it was too, as we had a week of glorious sunshine. We stayed here. 'The Garden Barn' in the very pretty village of Constantine, not far from Helford.

Such a wonderful base for the week! A place of childhood dreams. Beautiful, wild gardens with an adjoining private wood that we had full run of. Perfect. The birds were singing, bluebells appearing and all was perfectly spring-like and lovely. The village itself has an amazing charity shop, where I picked up some real gems! There is also a pop-up bakery every Friday and Saturday morning which sells superb, fancy, delicatessen style bakes.....yuuum!

We ate pasties (essential of course), cream teas (two in one day!) and a good few ice creams during our week. There was plenty of exploring, a trip to St Ives and a couple of good pub meals. All in all a super week :)
