After all the dancing I was completely ravenous, so down we went and ordered a delicious afternoon tea at their Gwineas Bistro. We were so lucky with the weather that we could sit on the sunshiny terrace wrapped up in our cosies, while we guzzled the scrummy smoked salmon sandwiches and warm scones with real deal Cornish clotted cream. (Please note that the pic is of afternoon tea for ONE. My kinda party)
After tea we walked (rolled) down to the fishing wharf and collected pebbles. You can feel the history of this quaint and pretty little place with every footstep… it feels valued and it feels loved.
I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect place to stay than The Llawnroc Hotel. The staff were kind and charming, the whole feel of the place was very peaceful and it manages (cleverly) to be both laid back and luxurious. It was exactly what I needed and was an absolute delight.
On our last day in Cornwall, we were walking by the sea back to the hotel, when a man ran up to us and asked us if we’d like to use the fire he’d built on the beach as he was heading off. We said thank you and yes! He handed us some additional firewood and we sat ourselves down by the cosy fire and watched the sun set.
Something about this act of kindness really touched me… the passing of the flame reminded me (no, not of the Olympics) of how the most simple and basic things; food, warmth etc, can make us feel so cared for, alive and happy.
When we left, we did the same and ‘passed the flame’ with the remaining firewood to the next couple who passed by.
And they looked very happy indeed.
