Summer Road Trip – Diary – Day Ten – A very Soggy Pentire, Widemouth Bay & My First Cornish Cream Tea!

Today we woke to rain pounding down on the roof of the motorhome. It wasn’t even one of those “its sound worse than it is” rains either it was full on soaked through just on the toilet block run! Needless to say we cancelled our Eden trip.

Today Chris had another work call to do this time in the middle of the day which is less than handy really especially given the state of the weather.

So I decided that while he sat in the motorhome on his call we would go in search of a cream tea & some hot chocolate.

Fern Pit Cafe

We found a car park on top of the cliffs that had a great view. It would have been a great car park to park for a little adventure had A, The weather been better and B, Chris not been working. However we headed to a little cafe “Fern Pit Cafe”.

This place is tiny and down some steps but I managed to get the pushchair down there and found a table. I had my first cream tea of our trip and the kids shared some chips.

The cream tea was ok nothing out of the ordinary but delicious nonetheless. Afterwards it had stopped raining so we took a little walk down a few steps. The steps actually lead down to the bay and a ferry across to Crantock. We only went down a few steps but it looked as if there was a lot more to get down before getting to the bottom.

Widemouth Bay

Back to the “bus” and Chris had finished his call so we bundled in and headed to our favourite beach widemouth. Its over an hours drive from where we are but it’s our last night in Cornwall and we wanted to make it a good one.

For a while the kids were asleep and we just sat watching the surfers and boogie boarders ride the waves. Then once the kids woke and the waves calmed a little we went for a splash around ourselves. before getting dry and having a bit of a BBQ right on the beach.

The perfect way to end our little Cornwall adventure.

On to our last couple of days in the motorhome and time to head back up north.
