As Alan spends most of his summer evenings playing “pub landlord” in the Broomhill Manor Guest bar, it’s great to know that even our young guests appreciate it! So much so, that one young guest (let’s call “him” Oliver) has put “his” appreciation into writing with our very first Guest Blog – “Oliver loves”! Read why!
A few decades ago, booking a holiday was a “big deal”. Pre-internet, self-catering properties were typically advertised in newspapers and magazines.
All those black & white ads with a brief description/ price and a letter you sent to a PO Box Number at least 6 months ahead of when you wanted to stay!
Do you remember your first beach holiday? Such a magical time – the feel of the sand on your toes, exploring the rock pools for creatures from the deep and running away from the waves! The north Cornwall coast is a great place for a toddler any time of the year but the deserted beaches and long days make the early summer even more special!
Thank goodness the days are starting to get longer and there’s a real sense of spring in the air!
Don’t you just love this time of year! All the spring plants are wakening up to greet the world with an array of yellow and purple – what a wonderful time to experience nature and all that Cornwall has to offer!
Having a bucket list of all the things you still want to do and achieve, is a 2017 must have. So why not start as a toddler – maybe we should call it your bucket & spade list?
Having lived in Cornwall since our twins were just 4 years old, we had plenty of opportunity to enjoy their preschool years and get their bucket & spade lists off to a good start!
If you are a Radio 2 breakfast show listener, you will have heard Chris Evans talking excitedly about his holiday in Cornwall last week and his challenge to the nation to “out naughty” the range of delicious foods that are readily available here!
I must say his summary was not only about the food, but pretty much it was!
If you have been following the saga, you will know that in 2014, Bude achieved the Bronze Award for Best UK Coastal Resort and last year this was eclipsed, by achieving the GOLD! You can help us do it again!
As the days become longer and warmer, it’s time to grab a few days on the Cornish coast to get you in the mood for summer! The north Cornwall coast is a great place to be at any time of the year but the deserted beaches and wonderful cliff flowers make the spring and early summer even more special!
If your kids are anything like ours, by the time the Easter holidays come round they are shattered and really glad of the break!
Easter is the first long holiday of the year and an ideal time to experience all that Cornwall has to offer!
Len Goodman visits Broomhill Manor with Jake Wood to recapture a memorable childhood holiday, for Holiday of My Lifetime on BBC One!
Who’d have thought that a childhood visit to Bude in 1980 for the then 8 year old Jake Wood, would have made such an impression on him!
