The Living is Easy

If you could imagine a quaint English village nestled on the banks of a Swallows and Amazon-esque river then you would have this little slice of paradise summed up perfectly. The creek upon which Beauport sits ebbs away at low tide revealing a walkway across to neighbouring Noss Mayo, making this the most wonderful destination for my recent staycation.

Going Solo

It doesn’t have to be a gap year or sabbatical, a long weekend or short break can be enough to reset and recharge. Going solo often means a little self-discovery too – what will you pick on the menu with no fear of potential food envy? What radio station will you choose to sing along to on your journey?

1930´s Dreaming

My return to work after the Easter Bank Holiday weekend was made somewhat sweeter on Friday when I was presented with the ultimate treat – a short break at The Limit in Holywell Bay! The Limit is a short 15 minute drive from our countryside offices and having previously only seen pictures of this quirky 1930’s home, I was really intrigued to see it in the flesh.

Magical Millook

I fell in love with The Beach Hut the first time I visited Millook back in 2013, with its small, dark pebbled cove sheltering below the geometric rock formations, it seemed other-worldy! Little did I know I would get the chance to stay myself one day very soon.

A Dose of Vitamin Sea at Tempest

Walking inside Tempest took my breath away, resting on the cliff edge, the view was completely unbroken and the ocean unfolded in front of us. Tina kindly provided homemade scones with jam and clotted cream - and I couldn´t have thought of a better way to kick off a weekend in Cornwall!
