Well it rained, and it hailed, and it was freezing and windy but ...

Well we're now back from Cornwall after a largely cold, wet and windy week.

We were staying just on the edge of Bodmin Moor but because of the weather didn't get the chance for any proper walks there.

But despite the weather we had a great time.

Amongst other things we visited the lovely Tintagel and its castle, the Arthurian Centre near Camelford, Bodmin, the Eden Project, Padstow, the famous Jamaica Inn, Landhydrock House, Flambards Experience (the wettest and clodest visit to a theme park ever but with a fantastic end of season fireworks display), Healey's Cyder Farm, Futureworld, Lizard Point and Westward Ho!.

We also happened upon a very friendly Post Office in a lovely village called St Brewards which also has an internet cafe and hosts several other village activities - do visit it if you're in the area - they do a lovely mocha. (There is a lively campaign to 'save the Post Office' even though it isn't currently on the threatened list).

Everywhere we went we got an exceptionally friendly welcome and all the places we visisted were well geared up for children.

We rounded the week off with a fancy dress halloween party at Michaelstow Manor Holiday Park where we were staying.

We now have a list of just as many other places to visit that we couldn't get to this time and are planning to head back as soon as we can.
