With Summer finally here I thought it was time to share some of my favourite places in Newquay to head for a cocktail or two. Newquay has had a hard time in the past with its image as a ‘party town’. Many expect wild stag and hen do’s and beaches taken up with hungover students … Continue reading The best bars in town . . .
Over the next few months I will be doing more posts on the different attractions and things to do whilst on holiday in our gorgeous town. Trust me, there’s plenty! I’m also currently looking in to both the history of Newquay and the history of Cliff House, which as far as I can see have … Continue reading Have you heard, beach is the word!
I have been wanting to make fudge for a really long time now. We live in Cornwall and they really do make some of the best fudge so I had to give it a go myself! Since moving down I think I have tried fudge from nearly all of the shops that sell it around … Continue reading I finally got round to making Fudge!

I think this was first drilled into me by my Mum, but she is right. I really do believe that small businesses are vital to the success of a community. That realisation … Continue reading Why we buy local

Right?
I couldn’t write a blog about life in our Bed and Breakfast without doing a post on our boys, Buddy, who’s 5 (the Labrador) and Ralph, who’s 1 (the cocker). Both of them have settled in pretty quickly to life in a b&b and never turn down the opportunity to be spoilt by guests, or … Continue reading Introducing Buddy and Ralph
These brownies are kind of awesome. They take no time to throw together and they are so so delicious. The guests love them and they really don’t last long around here.
