We visited Bendigo Lounge today to meet up with some friends. It wasn’t to have a meal so I’m afraid I can’t comment too much on their actual meals. We had drinks and sundaes. The sundaes were very delicious. Service from most of the staff was decent.

Land’s End Landmark, Cornwall


I’d been to Land’s End about a decade ago with my parents but it was in the middle of winter and thick fog so I was keen to go again. Keith had never been so we thought we’d give it a go. Land’s End is the most westerly point in the UK.

The Plume of Feathers, Cornwall


This restaurant was suggested to us in the binder provided by the hosts of our cottage so we booked it on a whim. It was helpful that it was a short drive away as well.

Wheal Honey, Cornwall


On our family holiday to Cornwall we booked a self-catered cottage. We were looking for somewhere that was kid friendly and self-catered and ticked many many boxes such as Sky, wifi, washing machine, etc. I found the cottage that ticked all these boxes and more on Sykes Cottages. Wheal Honey!

Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire (National Trust)


Over the Easter bank holiday weekend we went to Hardwick Hall for a family day out in the amazing good weather (for the UK). We’re trying to really get our money’s worth with our membership as you can probably tell!
