A Trip Down Memory Lane ...

Updated: Dec 9, 2019

My sister Anna and her family live in Falmouth and that was our next stop. Our mission was to deliver Christmas Gifts with the bonus of spending a fabulous day with Anna

and my many nieces and nephews including newborn Elsie who charmed even Mr. B!

After a wonderful day with them all and watching the sun go down over the sea from The Gylly Beach Cafe together, we set off for Truro where our home for the next two nights would be Chygwyne farm, a Caravan and Motorhome Club certified location. Arriving in the dark, we parked and settled down for the evening but when we woke up, the beautifully kept pitches and adjacent field with two adorable Llamas was a stunning surprise.

After just a few days, we already loved being on the road and waking up somewhere new each day but with my stubborn body complaining if I sit down for two long and reacting badly to the Cold and damp, we also knew it would be necessary to take an occasional break. We couldn’t have picked a better site to rest up. Within walking distance to the local shop, it’s also on the bus route between Truro and Falmouth. Chygwyne Farm was perfect.

The next leg of the journey was one I’d been planning and really looking forward to. A nostalgic road trip through North Cornwall visiting all my childhood haunts. First was Wadebridge, where we drove past my nan and grandmas old homes, my old school and the house I lived in as a teenager. From there I surprised Mr. B by directing him to Port Gaverne, the tiny but perfect little cove near Port Isaac.

what an old romantic Mr. B is!

we stopped for lunch at The Port Gaverne Hotel where James and me spent our wedding night. We even sat at the same table, hows that for romantic!



Finally we set off for Boscastle where my mum and dad ran a hotel in The 1970s and early 80’s and I went to The County Primary School. The highlight of the day was a pint of scrumpy in front of a blazing fire in The Cobwebb Inn. It was a perfect day, one I’ll treasure!
