Cornwall holiday

When you holiday in April in the UK (Cornwall in this instance) you'd usually be happy with 'no rain' and some sunny spells.  Last week the Davis' hit Cornwall to coincide perfectly with the April heat wave we've seen throughout this month.  Yep, it could be summer......but hopefully we've still got that to come too!

Here are a few photos from our week staying near St. Austell in a lovely self catering barn conversion called Buny Whey.   A fantastic place for families with children as the owners live in the main farm house nearby and keep horses, sheep & chickens and have cats & dogs who all pop in to visit during your stay (a highlight for Daisy and Barnaby).

Day one was mainly taken up by 'getting there'.......toilet stops along the M5 and picnic stops at National Trust sites en route made a 3hr journey pretty much a day trip!  Followed by two very excited children who found it far to much fun to sleep, we certainly had a long first day!

Local to where we stayed was Lanhydrock an impressive country house estate owned by the National Trust.  National trust often have events especially for children which make your visit a little more bearable with under 5's when you can keep them occupied with an Easter Egg hunt around the grounds.

Ali acts as guide, I document the day.  I also can't be bothered to read things, I'm far to impatient.

Barney was particularly fond of these stuffed rabbits.....Daisy on the other hand was initially excited (referring to them as Peter Rabbit) but walked away rather disturbed when she realised they weren't actually still alive!

The face says it all :-/

Ali was VERY pleased with her skills.

All week running up to going on holiday Daisy had been asking me to buy some fishing nets (before we left).  Safe to say, I didn't........until we spotted some in a local shop on our way to Par beach.  Blue for boys, pink for girls - simples!
