Cornwall is my Heaven on Earth. Period. Go figure
It went to hell when my gf grandfather James Richard french left in 1830 from Tintagel to go to British north america…
Cornwall is a piece of paradise for me
Your picture of food shows jam from Essex. And you have nothing to say about the language and culture. War agas meth!
you forgot: no friendly locals!!!! 😉
Absolutely right Grit! I’m visiting in a few weeks so I’ll see if I can find any.
Cornwall is a lovely place to visit, and all those comments are reasons to visit Cornwall, not to not visit Cornwall. They have the cleanest beaches, best views, plenty of history, good entertainment, seaside walks, etc. My ancestors were Cornish, and I spent some of my childhood days there visiting them.
Um, it’s a satirical piece. You know. A joke?
I think u missed the point good sir
Hi picture 24 the jam is from Essex it should be cornish jam?
It should! My only defence is that this was being sold in Cornwall. Thanks for stopping by!
You didn’t post any pictures of Hayle beach, its tiny even at low tide and no sand anywhere 😉
Also no fancy restaurants 😉
Haha, good point! Feel free to share some photos. Thanks for stopping by.
Watch out when you visit in a few weeks as not all locals are friendly!!!
Haha, I know which ones to avoid.
Fabulous individual shops like Ssh!
Been going down Cornwall for over 40 years and now store my tourer down there. Don’t know why I bother but guess it’s better than queuing at airports, hunting for luggage, checking delays etc.etc. I don’t mind about the weather as I haven’t paid a fortune for the sun and don’t have to get up at 5am to grab a sun lounger by a pool.I’m picky about my food but can just about manage a pasty and scrumptious cream tea eating at a local coastal cafe overlooking the sea, the sand the beautiful scenery and passing the time chatting with a local. Oh yes, just a few of the reasons why I absolutely love Cornwall rain or shine!!
I love this comment. We found Cornwall two years ago when we bought our tourer and have just arranged storage as we just can’t face any more airports. I am 69 my husband is 70 and we wish we had chosen Cornwall sooner. We stay at Pentewan mostly and I have booked six weeks there and a week in St Ives at Ayr. Can’t wait for our first week at Easter. Thank you. I really enjoyed your comment
Sounds great, glad you’ve enjoyed Cornwall so much.
Don’t listen to the sour comments, Cornwall is beautiful you’ll love it and have a wonderful holiday, a warm welcome everywhere you go from the kind and considerate local folk.
Bring 💰 😁
Good advice Ken, thanks for stopping by.
It’s a joke folks, a wind up. Cornwall is heaven, Nirvana, call it what you want! Lol
Nice one, my ‘anzum. That’ll keep them emmets from yer.
Haha absolutely my lover!
You are a proper comedian me ansome😂👍
Haha thank you!
Love Cornwall, best thing I heard a local say was ‘You think we’re all country bums down here,but when you goes home we’ve got your money !’
Wouldn’t catch me going there every year Its horrible ( shhhh don’t let everyone in on its beauty they will all want to go 🙂 )
Haha, I’m trying me best 😉
Proper job! From Colorado! Some of us get around! But I always come back to checkup on you all!
Haha, that’s great to hear, Mary!
Don’t highlight it too much or I’ll never be able to get out of my front door as it will be too packed, haha
I’m trying my very best to keep everyone away!
you didn’t mention the terrible cornish pasties – mm – I can smell them now – dreadful!!
Oh they’re truly awful! I’ll just have to head back 😉
Been going ro st Ives for the past 8 years and to be honest it’s not bad (only joking it’s amazing) would I go again ermmm why not got nothing better to do ( love it really )
I was born in Crantock opposit the chuch in Rose Cottage, went to Cubert infant school, and later my late parents moved to Newquay. Although I have no family in Newquay, my brother does have a business there. I now live in Oxfordshire, where I moved to for work, but if I can ever afford a home down there, I plan on coming back. With prices as they are, I am looking at renting. There simply is no where like Cornwall, it will always be my home, the land of my birth, and I am proud of my hertiage.
Laughing at the grockels on the A30 on Friday evening?
I couldn’t comment 👀
Amazing scenery, lovely grub, delightful Cornish folks who’ve always welcomed us. We have always loved Cornwall since first holiday there sixty years ago, there’s nowhere like it ❤️❤️
Glad you’ve loved it!
