There’s an age old debate and it is of the utmost importance. Jam first or cream first on your scone?
I vote jam then cream on my scone which is known as the Cornish way to eat it and that is A-OK with me as it’s a part of the country I love.
The lovely folks at Parkdean Holidays sent me an afternoon tea hamper to celebrate all things staycation and Cornish. The Parkdean chain have 24 holiday parks across the UK with 8 in Cornwall. The company’s head office is in Newcastle too which is just another nice part of the country – not that I’m biased or anything!
Hubs and I both have family and friends in the whole Somerset / Devon / Cornwall area so it is our favourite place to visit in the UK as it is so rich with sights to see in such a compact area.
I have very fond memories of our first UK staycation together when we first got together, we didn’t have much money as he was still at Uni but we managed plenty of weekend jaunts and I got to meet his family.
Spending warm summer days paddling in the sea at Padstow and trying to hunt out Rick Stein. Watching surfers and eating endless fresh seafood on Truro’s beautiful beach stretch. Ah bliss. The weather was warm and the whole trip was relaxed and laid back.
You can also visit the famous Tintagel Castle – the birth place of King Arthur or if you are a TV fan, Port Isaac where they film Doc Martin with Martin Clunes. The options are endless in the area!
Have you ever visited Corwnall? It is roughly a 6hr drive from the North East or you can even fly to Exeter and travel south from there.
