Falmouth - Part One

A few weeks ago (how time flies) I mentioned that Chris and I were taking a trip to Falmouth in Cornwall for his birthday.

We had the most amazing time and it was so good to get away and relax. We took so many photos to capture the weekend and have promised that we will have to go back there.

The drive from Surrey to Falmouth took about five hours, with a break half way. By the time we arrived at the B&B we were tired and need to stretch our legs, but this view gave us the energy to not crash and burn, but to freshen up and explore.

For our first night, we decided upon dinner at Rick Steins Seafood bar, and we were impressed. We had the battered scallops for starters and I had mussels for my main; if mussels are on the menu, I am guaranteed to order them for either starter or main. I love them!

After dinner we headed to a small converted church, now a cinema to watch Ted. As we curled up on the sofa with waiter service, we relaxed and laughed our way through the film.

    happy sunday!! :D there is a new post on my blog. I would love to have your views :)

  4. This is where I live! If you ever get the chance to, definately head down to Gylly Beach Cafe and sit outside right on the beach. Or The Old Grammar School in Truro (only 20 mins or so away) for their evening tapas menu. Its fabulous. Hope you had fun!

    1. Hi Jess

      We went to the Gylly Beach Cafe on our first evening. It was lovely to sit outside under the heats and watch the sea. We had an amazing time.

      Thanks for your comment.


  5. Dine at Rick Stein's restaurant is on my list of things to do before I die! A tad dramatic but he is my favourite chef and I love his ethos on food and the environment.

    Sounds like a really relaxing trip and such great views.
