A Break in Cornwall


Cornwall has been on my ‘to visit’ list for quite sometime now and a super win in January 2017 give us the perfect opportunity for that visit.

The prize I won was a 5* Luxury Family Break with St Mawes Retreats, Cornwall. I spoke to a lovely lady called Amanda who arranged everything for us. We had a choice of apartments and dates, and after a little consideration we choose to visit Sunseekers in Fowey during the October half-term.

We arrived in Fowey after a 7 hour journey and we were very happy with our choice of accomadation. The apartment was very spacious and the views over the harbor were just gorgeous, even on a wet October afternoon.

The day of our arrival we spent exploring the town, with its many bakeries selling freshly made pasties and the homemade fudge shops, I knew any hopes of sticking to my healthy eating regime had just gone out of the window.


During our stay we visited many of the local attractions…

Fowey Aquarium

Lovely little aquarium that has on display sea creatures that have all been caught locally.

Readymoney Beach and St Catherines Castle

This hidden cove was just a 5 minutes away from our apartment and is over looked by St Catherine’s Castle.

Eden Project

Eden project was just a short 20 minute drive from Fowey. There is so much see and do at the Eden Project and we were lucky enough to visit during one of their special events, Roald Dahl week.

Polruan Via the Fowey Ferry


This is a great place to spend time with little ones on a chilly October afternoon. There is a soft play centre, trampolines, dodgems and a large outdoor activity area.

-Pendennis Castle


We all really enjoyed our visit, although the 13 hour drive back (due to accidents and traffic jams) was somewhat of a drag. Would I visit again? Most definitely. There is so much to see and experience regardless of the weather and it is so family friendly, I definitely would love a second visit.
