Quick Post From The Cornish Coast 2

Good day to all! Another quick post from the Cornish coast before heading back to Bristol.  Had another lovely sleep at the Cliff House and tucked into this gorgeous breakfast while gazing out to sea. I highly recommend this guesthouse for the comfy rooms, stunning scenery, and full breakfast in the morning.

Before leaving Newquay, I stopped off at Paulines Creamery as I heard it was a nice bake shop in the town center.

I grabbed some pasties for lunch later on in Bude, as you do when in Cornwall. Did you know the Cornish Pasty is a protected food? In order for a pasty to be called “Cornish” it has to be made in Cornwall according to certain specifications, as noted by The Cornish Pasty Association.

However, my main reason for stopping at Paulines was for a slice of their sticky toffee caramel cake.  It was my little slice of heaven! The only mistake I made was not bringing back an entire cake to nibble on throughout the week.  Thank goodness they ship!

I also picked up some other goodies I’ll review in addition to the rest of my haul from the three counties show. Hope your weekend was delicious!

The view from The Cliff House in Newquay, where we’re staying

Hello from Cornwall! Having a quick weekend away as I think it might be summer here in the south west of England. Spent the morning in St Ives exploring the Tate and winding my way in and out of the cobblestone paths. Lots of people about and quite a few shops offering up homemade fudge crafted with Cornish cream. Decided upon a Finger Box sample pack at The Cornish Candy Shoppe.

Each one includes a generous assortment of flavors. I was lucky enough to sample rocky road, strawberry, black currant, and death by chocolate, to name a few (these were my favorite ones).  They also feature hand made chocolates, britles, and nougats with lots of gift pack options – that is, if they last the journey home. 

Off to enjoy some fresh seafood tonight and plan on going native with some proper Cornish pasties tomorrow. Where ever you are, enjoy your weekend!
