It was my first time in Cornwall and it did not disappoint, even the sun rewarded us with good weather.
First stop on route to our rented abode was a little village called Tintagel.
This medieval building was once Tintagel Old Post Office with a rather quaint cottage garden It is now managed by The National Trust of which we are members.
D an myself also took a walk towards Tintagel Castle, but we did not go into it as my mother in law was left with a cup a tea at one of the cafe opposite this place Tintagel Toy Museum. We wandered back towards the streets and visited a couple of the local Craft fairs and picked up some Cornish Pasties (see above), mine was Cheese and Onion before driving towards out destination Cubert.
We had rented a static caravan with a balcony at a Holiday Park in Cubert (above cute salt and pepper shakers in the shape of caravans).
Our spacious caravan was called 'Beachcomber' offering all the creature comforts of home.
A lovely welcoming touch by our hosts was opening the fridge and finding homemade scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream. It took us no time to devour them. D said this was the best clotted cream he has ever had in his life and the scones were light and fluffy too, that it had me yearning for more.
After checking in, we went into the village to check out every tourists essentials - the nearest shop, pub and 'chippy'!. (Above) St Cubert Church.
Later in the evening, D and myself left his mother with her novel, whilst we took a drive out to explore Holywell Bay.
We parked up and cut through the sand dunes to watch the sunset in Holywell Bay.
It truly was stunning.
I will share more pictures of it tomorrow, but this is my contribution for Sunday Snap hosted by JibberJabber UK for Sunday Snap; and My Sunday Photo hosted by One Dad 3 Girls.
