Have you ever visited a place and it just felt like home? Somewhere that you didn't grow up but you feel as though it's where you belong. For myself and most of my family, that place is Cornwall. I have stayed the whole summer on the South Coast going on six years now and it just never gets old. Staying close to Newquay, it is quite easy to drive up and down the county. However, you definitely need to get out early to make the most of the day and not spend 3 hours of it driving. Being quite central, I'm never far away from the grungy charm of the surf capital of the UK or the quaint charm of rural seaside villages. Many of which I have come to see as a second home over the years.
Travelling up and down the coast roads, we have come across some of the most beautiful and raw coves and beaches that adorn the edges between land and sea. We travel up and down the county with my dad and brother usually stopping off to do a spot of surfing on the North coast. Leaving my mum and I to dose up on multiple coffees in one of the many adorable cafes we've scoped out over the years. We're also fortunate enough to always be down during Boardmasters, a festival held on Fistral beach in Newquay and Watergate Bay. A great selection of artists play the festival overlooking the ocean from Watergate each year. With Fistral beach hosting exciting competitions for surfing, skating and BMX riders by day and acoustic beach sessions at night. My brother and I also took advantage of the stalls that take over the beach car park for the weekend before we all stopped off for a drink to help us cool down.
