Throwback Thursday - looking back on Boxing Day 2018!

So why not spend Christmas or New Year in Cornwall. You could spend Boxing Day on the beach and do what Liz did last year. The sun was shining and it was actually quite warm! Thank goodness it was, as Liz had decided to take part in the Boxing Day swim at Perranporth to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. So who will join her this year??

Christmas and New Year in Cornwall is fantastic and Liz provides a list of things to visit and to take part in whilst here.  From Carol Services to visiting the lights at Mousehole and not forgetting a visit to the Panto in Falmouth, go on you know you want to, "oh yes you do".  The beaches are quiet too and the walks along the coast can be amazing, especially when you find a good pub or cafe with a roaring fire, of which there are many to choose from.  

Liz - before the Boxing Day Dip!

Nearest to us is Perranporth beach which is 3 miles long, so there's plenty of beach to enjoy.  After a dip (if you feel like taking part), you can head to the Watering Hole, the pub on the beach, which is exactly what we do on Boxing Day.  A warming hot chocolate, perhaps with a little something stronger added, was just what was needed after the Boxing Day dip!

Boxing Day Swim Callestock Courtyard

This was Liz after her swim, and for those of you who know Nick, I'm sure you can pick him out fully clothed with his wellies on behind me. He had the important job of holding onto our little dog Sandy and talking to Debbie and Mike who were staying with us in Wheal Busy. 

Our cottages at Callestock all have wood burning stoves and oil-fired central heating or underfloor heating, so are really cosy to come home to each day. We always provide a Christmas tree and also a pressie from Nick and I. So if you fancy joining us for Christmas or New Year this year, give us a call or book online, we can assure you that you'll love it!
