A Few of My Foodie Favourites

The Hidden Hut Things are slowly beginning to open up in Cornwall, restaurants and well loved pubs are cautiously opening doors in new social-distanced responsible ways. I think that is what we need to do now, support our local businesses but with good sense in mind. Woody's Pizza I thought I would share with you some of my favourite foodie places that are opening their doors and welcoming us in. Woody's Pizza in Wadebridge have been operating a delivery service only for lockdown, but now are back at Saltbox in Wadebridge operating in the new normal, with bookings taken for eating in. On the same site is the delicious Laid Back Coffee offering breakfast and brunch, best place to check for their up to date opening times and menu is Facebook .

Cornwall in December

Trerice  December has got off to a cracking start here in Cornwall, with stunning pink sunrises and burning gold sunsets. There is a different feel to the county in the Winter season, a combination of bracing walks with family and friends, empty beaches and very happy dogs (so many beaches become available to dogs out of season) coupled with the cosiness of traditional pubs and the plentiful craft markets. The Longstore, Charlestown Last weekend I headed to Trerice, a National Trust house near Newquay. Despite being mainly closed for the winter you can go on a guided tour of the house with the conservationists. This is quite fascinating, seeing a different side to the grand operation and hearing the more recent history of this ancient home that inspired the writer of Poldark. learning about the centuries-year-old-clocks and precious paintings was a lovely way to spend a grey day. Most of the National Trust houses have events going on through the winter, the private house
