Everyone knows a continue in Cornwall can be, well, shall we usually contend unreliable. But this was ridiculous.

It seemed like an age given we merrily decamped from a balmy South London for a prolonged expostulate west, usually to be met by increasingly severe weather.

The sleet had started with a peaceful drizzle and a few shaken jokes, and finished entrance during us horizontally with a usually sound in a automobile a pathetic eldest child.

The park is a brief travel from Kennack Sands beach, that has all we could wish for in a Cornish inlet – sand, surf, stone pools teaming with life and a accessible ice cream shop. 

On a final night, with a comfortable dusk object resplendent down and equine riders erratic by to paddle in a shallows, it unequivocally done for an halcyon spot.

There is copiousness to do a brief expostulate divided from Sea Acres and we took full advantage of an suddenly balmy morning with a outing to a Seal Sanctuary during Gweek.

The track is sundry and full of seductiveness and rewarded with a illusory perspective of a flattering fishing community as we come around into a cove. It is home to a nearest pub too.
