So, the time has come. Christmas is fast approaching, I’ve finished the books and we’re going away. I cannot wait.
We are off to Cornwall this saturday to stay on the Trelowarren Estate in south west Cornwall, to stay in one of their lovely looking eco cottages. We really enjoy going self-catered when we go away, as you have more privacy and we find it relaxing not having to work to someone else’s schedule. However, it is hard to find a good quality cottage – we do want it to be as nice as home. So Trelowarren looks fantastic in this respect, with 5* holiday cottages which are tastefully decorated and furnished.
We like to head off all day and explore the local area, on foot, by bike or by car to far to reach parts. There are so many things we want to do whilst we are away and try and fit in some rest and relaxation, too. We will often go out all day walking or visiting towns or galleries and will arrive back after dark hungry and tired.
This is where, we hope, Trelowarren will come into its own, as it has its own estate restaurant, New Yard restaurant, and a rather lovely looking pizza pop up on site, so I need not worry about rustling up a meal when we return.
As much as I love cooking, it is nice to have a break once in a while, and I am unlikely to be cooked for otherwise (unless we have jacket potatoes every night!) I’ll report back and let you know how we get on.
So, that’s what we’re up to as of this weekend. Go Free Foods closes this friday (last orders were today) and re-poens on 7th January.
Before I go, I have some favourite Christmas food and drink to share with you over on my blog for HELLO! Magazine.com
