Yesterday we arrived in Cornwall and we're staying in a lovely holiday cottage near Sennen. It's a one level property which means no stairs and it's really lovely with all modern cons including a dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine and Internet. The bed is a four poster and it's very comfy. It's the second time we've used holiday cottages online and both times the property has been lovely. We even had a cream tea waiting for us.
Today we went on a long walk (not to be repeated) following a footpath to Gwynver beach. It took us through horrendous rutted muddy fields with no visible footpath. We came to Trevedra Farm, Sennen which looked a really good place for caravans, motor homes and camping. They pointed us in the right direction for the footpath to the beach.
Gwynver is a beautiful unspoilt dog friendly beach but it's extremely steep to get down to it. Ben the dog struggled with the uneven steps and sand. He'd already needed to be lifted over stiles....which is why the walk won't be repeated.
The day got worse firstly I got a bee sting on my neck which Eric quickly removed and the shop at the campsite had antihistamines. Then Eric took a tumble and banged his face. We survived and Ben the dog is out cold on his mat. Let's hope we have a better day tomorrow.
