LOOE, CORNWALL

Looe Bay, Cornwall, June 2015

We've just got back from a week of being on holiday, thats right, one whole week off work! The last time I had any time off was at Christmas so to say we were ready for a break is a huge understatement.

A while ago we booked in for 4 nights at a camp site in Cornwall that has these little camping snugs doted around, you basically take everything you need for camping but the tent, genius! This was before Steven's sister lent us the tent we took with us to the New Forest so after we got that we tagged on two nights in Dorset to make the most of the full week off. But first, our Cornwall trip...

Obviously I got ill just before we left, I can't remember the last time I had a cold but my body must have let its guard down as I was beginning to wind down and then BAM! full on head cold with dizziness and just generally feeling like crap for about 3 days. But, it didn't scupper anything for us, aha you pesky cold! (and that's why there's only one picture of me!)

We both agreed that this was our best holiday yet (sorry, that sounds incredibly smug but it really was!)  the weather was just unbelievable and the camping snug was brilliant. It blocked out all the noise and light from outside so we had plenty of sleep and no rude awakenings from the birds in the morning - and also somewhere warm to sit as it turned chilly in the evening (and no spiders/insects in them either - which means Sarah and Nick, we're all going next year!)

The campsite is right on the coast of Looe, there's a walk down to Looe Bay which is pretty hilly (not the best when full of cold!) and takes roughly 45 minutes - but there is icecream and cornish pasties when you get there so it isn't all bad! Looe Bay is a lovely little area, a traditional seaside town with quaint shops and cafes and a sandy beach. We came across an almost secluded beach on our walk down where we stopped off for some cake and a paddle in the sea.

The view from the campsite though was the absolute highlight, I mean...just look...

The campsite is run by a lovely couple called Liz and Mike who in their words are 'living the dream', they have the most beautiful dog called Skye who I fell in love with and the cost of hiring a camping snug is so reasonable - here's the link, they have about 6 snugs at the minute but they seem to be pretty popular so not sure if they have any plans to build more. I honestly cannot recommend this campsite enough, I miss the view already!

And that was Cornwall, we then moved on to Dorset where the weather was ermm... not the best shall we say. But I'll sort out those pics later and pop them up in the week. I'm also editing a little video I made of our time there so will get that done pronto.
Now, back to the harsh reality of living in a city!
