View from the beach at Rock from the Camel Estuary, CornwallI’ve just returned from a few blustery days in Cornwall. While it’s a long way to drive from most places, the ever improving Newquay Airport makes it a hop, skip and a jump from almost anywhere. I flew down from Gatwick with Air Southwest and it was one of the most hassle free experiences I’ve ever had. You can rent a car with Avis in Cornwall (of course) via our office in Truro and they’ll meet you at the airport.

We stayed at the wonderful Old Barn, a self catering luxury paradise with charming hosts and home to three beautiful Irish Red Setters; our spaniels loved it there! No visit to Cornwall would be complete without a trip to Padstow and Rick Stein’s wonderful seafood restaurant, but there is so much more! The Eden Project is a great place to visit especially on wet days:o) and I can heartily recommend the Seal Sanctuary, by the Helford estuary. They do great conservation work and it’s a dog friendly place to visit. If you want to be really touristy you can visit Lands End, past all the exhibitions the coastal scenery is really wonderful. But my favourite place of all, is the huge expanse of sand in Perranporth. It’s about 3 miles long and provides fabulous walking in all weather.
