A few weeks ago when I was down in Cornwall, we decided to take a little trip a bit further down South from where we live to St Ives. We stayed in a lovely hotel cottage with an amazing sea view for two nights. Even though its only forty minutes down the road from us, to me it was such a nice break/change of scenery. Due to the severity of my illness I probably won’t be able to go on a proper holiday again this year but little local weekends away will do just fine. Especially when the beach is involved.
I managed to go out for a meal in the evening for the first time since I’ve been poorly!! It felt like such a novelty to be out past 3pm munching on yummy scallops (my favourite!). It was a baby step as we only went to the hotel restaurant, early at around 6 – before anyone else arrived, and we were home within an hour, but I did it. And I am hoping it’ll give me the confidence to try something similar again! I was incredibly poorly the following day and had to spend most of it in bed despite being away but I don’t regret doing it. I knew I would have to spend a great deal of our weekend in our hotel room anyway.
The beaches down in St Ives are breathtakingly beautiful, particularly St Michael’s Mount. I would highly recommend anyone to go and visit, especially if you love cobbled streets, and nautical art! The only thing I would say is that its not overly disabled friendly – the shop doorways are very narrow and often have steps up to them.
Let me know if you do go as I can recommend a fabulous café that you can get gluten and dairy-free scones from! We got some to take away and they were delicious
