Holidays, Cornwall - Part 1 Sunday 13/04/08

Tony and I escaped to Cornwall for a few days starting last Sunday, we stayed at travel lodge in Saltash. We visited the National Trust house - Cotehele which was interesting, It is a Tudor manor house with beautiful gardens, and interiors mostly hung with huge tapestries. It also has a restaurant serving food made with local ingredients, we stopped for coffee and a toasted teacake which was delicious.
In the late afternoon we drove down to Looe, which is a little coastal village with a harbour and sandy beach which are seperated by a stone pier. We walked through the winding streets full of gift shops selling all the usual seaside items. We stopped for a postcard and then walked to the end of the stone pier.












For my readers from other parts of the world this link http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&q=Cornwall,+UK&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&resnum=1&ct=image is for a map of Cornwall.

It's good to have you back! We're off to Devon this summer; it's a toss-up as to whether I love the West Country or the Lake District more (predictable? moi?) but fortunately my hubby agrees so we usually alternate holidays. Can't wait!

Thanks for the link to google earth so I could look at the map. (I love maps and so I'm very intersted.) We are thinking of visiting Cornwall when we go to England this summer. So many ideas, so little time!
