Food: Grocery Home Delivery in Cornwall from

July 29, 2013 Cornwall

I’ve stayed in a lot of self catering places over the years, from a farmhouse in Anglesey to a cottage in Thorpeness. Some are immaculately kitted out (hello Dreamcatchers house of wonder), others lack even salt & pepper. Being someone who would always prefer to cook breakfast rather than buy a croissant when on holiday, I always […]

LLG in Cornwall: Fifteen Spring Farmers’ Market, Watergate Bay

March 10, 2013 Cornwall

At the end of March last year, lil’sis & I headed down to Cornwall for the most glorious four day long weekend. It was really warm, properly hot on some days, which is frankly hard to comprehend, given that the mercury has fallen to below zero in most of the British Isles tonight, and it’s […]

LLG Travels: Cornish Pasties & Saffron Buns at The St Mawes Bakery.

January 16, 2013 Cornwall

On the penultimate day of our New Year’s holiday at Dreamcatchers we were all cooked out. Hannah and I had been such a frenzy of FOOD FOOD FOOD COOK COOK COOK from the moment we arrived. (I even managed to knock up a cake within an hour of waking on our first day.) So we […]

LLG Travels: The New Inn, Veryan, The Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall

January 9, 2013 Cornwall

Oh we did luck out food-wise on New Year’s Day. After our mammoth cooking session at Dreamcatchers on NYE, and subsequent dancing to Jools Holland on the telly activity, there was basically zero chance that cooking would be happening.  We woke up to the sun,

LLG Travels: New Year’s Eve in St Mawes, Cornwall

January 2, 2013 Cornwall

(On the terrace overlooking St Mawes Harbour at midnight this year.) New Year’s Eve is not my favourite party night. In my twenties we often left London in large groups and rented big old houses for a long weekend, which was always fun. (1998-9 in a chateau in Normandy with twenty university friends was pretty […]

LLG Travels: Posetta Baddog Visits The Scarlet Hotel, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall.

January 1, 2013 Cornwall

( Mawgan Porth Beach, seen from the terrace of The Scarlet.) I’m sure I don’t have to explain just how far my nose was put out of joint when Mummy LLG & Mummy Lil’sis buggered off to The Scarlet Hotel in  Cornwall in the summer of 2010 without me.  I couldn’t believe it: beaches for me […]

LLG Travels: St Mawes, Cornwall

December 31, 2012 Cornwall

If I said that we had done anything more than cook, eat, shop for more food, talk about what we are going to cook, and walk to the shops again here in St Mawes, then I would be a big fat liar. And, really it *is* the perfect holiday as far as we are all […]

LLG Travels: Day One and Two in St Mawes, Cornwall

December 29, 2012 Cornwall

We’ve done very little since we arrived in St Mawes. Soon after we arrived (stiff and tired after six hours in the car), Hannah cooked a wonderful goats cheese, squash & kale frittata, which we ate with excellent bread from the St Mawes Bakery. (There are very good oven proof frying pans here, so I […]

LLG Travel: Video of Dreamcatchers Self-Catering House, part of St Mawes Retreats

November 30, 2012 Cornwall

Back in August, Hannah, Mark & I hopped it at the last minute to St Mawes in Cornwall for the most delightful long weekend. We stayed in Dreamcatchers, one of the beautiful dedicated self-catering properties owned by St Mawes Retreats in and around St Mawes & Fowey. We had *such* a wonderful time, exploring St Mawes […]
