There is not a day gone by since our weekend in Cornwall, that one of us hasn’t said in so many words ‘I wish we lived at Wildwood’. Even the youngest of our group, our friends 2 year old daughter talks about it constantly. Wanting to play in the woods and on the epic rope swing.
Wildwood is possibly the most perfect holiday home ever. It is beautiful and comfortable with period features, a big garden, and room for two families to spend time together or apart if need be. We were blown away with it. Upon arrival we entered through the back door into the farmhouse kitchen. A large kitchen table which seated 10, a big America style fridge and huge range which we used to full effect, baking homemade pizzas and on Sunday a roast dinner.
As parents we loved the large bedrooms and en suite. I treated myself to a rare soak in the tub, who could resist that bath! Most importantly we loved the space, room to spread out. Time to enjoy reading the paper on the large table with a coffee, whilst the kids all played in wooded garden.
The kids, all four of them, loved the snug. A room off of the main lounge, which had the biggest flat screen tv they’d ever since and large comfy bean bags to sprawl on. And then there was the garden. The lawn big enough for game of footie and the woods with its rope swing. They felt wild and free at the same time safe.
We spent the 3 days there, visiting Enys Garden to see the bluebells, the local beach at Gwithian, and crabbing off the harbour wall at Mousehole. Wildwood is the perfect base to explore Cornwall, more on our adventures soon…
