Thread: Just booked a hols

  1. #1

    Just booked a hols

    Or to be more accurate my wife has.

    A week in September in Bedruthan. Been to the south Cornish coast a few times recently but haven't been to North Cornwall in a long time.

    Already looking forward to it, Cornwall is plenty exotic enough for me right now.

    What a great choice of venue.

    Last week of August into early September Iíll be a few feet away from you below the Bedruthan Steps hotel in Mawgan Porth 923.

    Iím renting the same house I did last year just above the beach just to the right of the hotel.

    Youíll find the Merrymoor pub in Mawgan Porth an excellent place to eat and drink.

    Go a further mile into Watergate Bay to find my favourite beach on planet Earth,I actually owned an apartment here until fairly recently........Godís own hand touched this place.

    Watergate Bay hotel is a place Iíve stayed at probably 40 times since 78 and is a nice place to eat and dine as is the beach hut.

    A further two miles along the road youíve got Porth where I had a rental cottage and thatís a lovely spot.

    Padstow is over rated in my book but worth a visit and St Ives is worth the 40 minute drive as is Falmouth.

    Youíve picked a terrific spot.

    If our holidays cross I shall buy you a beverage 👍🏻😎

    This is the house we rent through ďPerfect StaysĒ and although at first glance itís pricey we had about 11 of us there for the week and it then works out to be decent value.

    Which hotel are you staying at?

    If itís The Ruby your missus has more money than sense😆

    No kids allowed though so your luck might be in 😏

    Unusually for us booked a hotel rather than self catering. Just called the Bedruthan Hotel as far as I know. Wife said it cost nearly as much the cancelled week we had in Israel. After lots of nagging from the aforementioned lady we have the money back.

    In the last few years been to southern Cornwall from Looe round to St Ives a couple of times. Last time I went to the north coast was in 93 with 2 kids. Weather was lousy which with 4 and 6 year olds matters a lot. Highlight was the middle Sunday driving everyone from Hayle to Wembley. Worth every moment.

    Not there until middle on the month. Thanks for all the tips I will ensure I try the Merrymoor. Looking forward to it a ridiculous amount.

    You reminded me of The Eclipse that never was. Managed to get a prime spot in Hayle, Cornwall for the Total Solar eclipse of 1999. and saw nothing of it. It was sunny and cloudless for the 5 days prior whilst I was there and then it peed down on the very day, in fact it was torrential, even planes had to fly over 35,000 feet just to see the eclipse. One of my biggest disappointments ever. I got to see Patrick Moore though.

    I was in the South of France. Clear blue sky but only a sliver of an eclipse.

    We were in Brixham at the time and went to see the eclipse on Berry Head. Watched the whole thing. Didn't see Patrick Moore though. Not sure which was/is more disappointing, witnessing the eclipse itself or not seeing Patrick Moore. Fine lines Phil' .

    Itíll be The Bedruthan Steps Hotel 923.......thatís what it was called historically.

    A lovely spot but Iíd get your wife to check that your room faces the sea rather than the main road side as itís a busy road in season.

    The other downside to it is the parking which has always been inadequate and ridiculously tight.

    The spot itself is top notch albeit as we found last year it always requires the car to get to any other place that Mawgan Porth beach and the Merrymoor Inn.

    Make plenty of time for days at Watergate Bay though and the pub next to the Beachcombers apartments of which I used to own one is excellent.

    If you have any younger ones with you the go kart track at St Eval is only a couple of miles away and is great fun........not for my son in law and daughter though as I beat them around there last year😎

    Usually good weather in Cornwall in September as well so Iím sure youíll enjoy it.

    Checked and she paid a supplement for sea facing. Good weather would be a bonus but no such thing as wrong weather just wrong clothes. If it's wet then karting is so much more fun.
