In the morning, James and I jumped out of bed and made the most of the sun and beautiful blue skies by joining his parents and the Instagram-famous @stanthepug for a walk along the beach.
We stopped at the Watering Hole for drinks and had lunch (we shared mussels and a mezze board) at the catchily-named Tywarnhayle Inn, known simply as the TY to locals and holidaymakers who visit multiple times a year.
After lunch, we headed over to the beautiful Padstow for a little wander around and it’s just as quaint and beautiful as you’d expect it to be.
Devastated that the seafood stall wasn’t open so I made do by taking a photo by it.
OMG BIG YOUTUBE STAR!
Lol, jk. James decided to buy himself a Gimble but it makes him look like a bit of a knob.
Of course, we couldn’t go to Padstow without trying at one of Rick Stein’s many eateries in the area so we opted for Rick Stein’s Café.
We both had a delicious three-course set dinner for £25.95 and it was divine – would 100% recommend!
With full bellies and a post-dinner stroll, we headed back to Perranporth.
Friday was spent on a day trip with the family to the beautiful St Ives, with its beautiful beach and gorgeous little shops.
The last thing you’d want to see as you’re relaxing on the beach…
We had lunch at The Rum & Crab Shack where J had mac n’ cheese and I chowed down on fresh crab sandwiches.
In the afternoon, we had a nap followed by a buffet dinner at The Seiners Arms, where we were staying.
On our final full day in Cornwall, we visited Falmouth which we both really liked – anywhere with a good range of vintage, independent and charity shops gets a big thumbs up from me!
Of course no trip with James would be complete without a trip to ANOTHER National Trust site.
This time, in the form of Glendurgan Gardens.
Through the gardens, we also sauntered down to the beach.
In the evening, we had dinner at Willow Bistro before heading back home the next morning.
