The Potager…

I had heard good things about the Falmouth Pop Up before we had left for Cornwall.  Locally sourced food, cooked by the wonderful Annie who used to co-run the Runcible Spoon here in Bristol.  In just a short time the Falmouth Pop Up has developed a large cult following, serving delicious food in unusual locations.  Recently Annie has converted her garage into an intimate dining room, serving breakfasts and suppers. Annie has also recently taken over the running of the cafe at

At very low tide the sea allows you to

Avallen Barn…

Anyway, I suppose I should start from the beginning.  To me a good holiday starts with a great place to stay.  A home from home, somewhere after a days adventuring you come back to and it’s comfortable, beautiful and loved.
